vbfabled Deckling

Hey! I'm Fabled and I like EDH! In particular I really enjoy building EDH with commanders who don't get much attention but I think are really cool, like Depala, Pilot Exemplar in Depala's Great Dwarf Armada, or Atarka, World Render in my favorite of my decks Double Dragon: The Rendering(Co-created with vibrabones). My EDH decks aren't competitive because neither is the format, darn it!

Besides EDH, I'm pretty knowledgeable about Standard, Frontier, and just a little in Pauper and Modern, and I'm glad to try to help with any deck, unless it has a boring name. As a rule I avoid looking at anything named "8-Rack Modern" or "Jund Werewolves" or whatever. That's not even trying.

Favorite Card: Ornithopter

Favorite Color: Green

Favorite Guild: Gruul for playstyle, Izzet for flavor

Favorite Tarkir Clan: Temur for playstyle, Sultai for flavor

Favorite Shard: Bant

Favorite Tribe: Hydras

Favorite Planeswalker: Urza

Anyway, take a look at my decks and let me know if you want help on yours. Thanks!

Okay so I finally got to test my hapatra build and I can safely say Viridian Longbow is one of the most useful pieces. As long as you have at least one snake, it locks down the board really well.

Pharika, God of Affliction did a lot too as a source of extra snakes, as well as some graveyard control against decks like Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Golgari rot farm adds 2 mana, a black and a green, not just black or green

New suggestion: I might replace Fog with Druid's Deliverance since for 1 extra mana you'll get much more value out of it. I would have recommended Contagion Engine but it appears to have gone up by $10 since I got mine, so...

Also, one problem that comes up a lot in commander is mana fixing. It's hard to make sure you have the right color at the right time, so even though they're a little slow, it's good to run things like Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Jungle Hollow, Golgari Rot Farm, and Tainted Wood.

Glad you're getting back into the game! Hapatra is a great place to start and is very fun to build around. But if you play a lot of commander, definitely invest in a Swiftfoot Boots, because it fits into almost every deck as a cheaper Lightning Greaves. Whispersilk Cloak also fits in a lot of decks, especially ones where your commander has to hit opponents.

Good cheap commander protection: Swiftfoot Boots, Whispersilk Cloak. Also recommend Blowfly Infestation and Viridian Longbow for Hapatra builds.

Otherwise, awesome deck for an awesome commander.

For some reason, tappedout is showing the cloak and boots as over a dollar, but they're both under 40 cents, so not sure what that's aboout

Make sure your playgroup is okay with Prophet of Kruphix cuz it's super banned and super OP.

Also, Cyclonic Rift is super good, since it doesn't hit your stuff. I also suggest Scour from Existence because ramp. I think you may want to run more creatures, too. Cut back on some of the less useful instants and sorceries. Hydras, for example would be great. In particular, I like Primordial Hydra, Genesis Hydra, and Hydra Broodmaster for ramp. Also consider Omnath, Locus of Mana

Good luck!

First of all, cool deck, I like +1/+1 counter strategies a lot.

Couple of suggestions: I would run some board wipes that don't kill your stuff as much. For example, your creatures will be pretty big so Languish and Festercreep will work pretty well. Also consider Black Sun's Zenith so you can pump just enough mana into it to kill everything else but your stuff. For cards guaranteed not to hit you, try In Garruk's Wake.

Also, since you are doing a +1/+1 counter I might switch out some of those planeswalkers with more relevant ones like Ajani Steadfast or Nissa, Voice of Zendikar who can both slap counters on all your stuff the turn they come out. Gideon of the Trials is great in standard, but if he's the only Gideon you run, not really worth the slot in EDH. Also, Liliana of the Veil becomes much weaker in a multiplayer format like EDH, since all but one of her abilities only target one player, so consider replacing her with some more relevant walkers.

Your creature base looks pretty awesome here, love the inclusions of all the abzan +1/+1 keyword ability dudes, but you did leave out Abzan Battle Priest. I'd also consider Gyre Sage for some extra ramp, as well as some hydras for game-ending power. My top picks for hydras here are Kalonian Hydra and Primordial Hydra.

Really sweet deck, though, good luck!
