Altar of the Brood turns Scute Swarm into a miller as well, which scales crazy high after a couple land drops. Also mills each opponent since that's important to ya.

Really cool card I love the idea of an abzan zombie elf deck. Especially with the recent elf support in golgari. You can run mana dorks with Altar of the Brood to mill and use your dorks to steal some creatures thus milling more.

Awesome deck my man! I absolutely love Hapatra and think she is really fun! Feel free to check out my own build and see if there is anything in there you like: Hapatra, Vizier of Plagues

But may I suggest: Hard to block Hapatra - Trailblazer's Boots, Sword of Truth and Justice, Sleeper's Guile, Cover of Darkness (also can be used to hit with alot of snakes)

Tokens helping - Bastion of Remembrance, The Meathook Massacre, Gruesome Fate, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Harvest Season, Altar of the Brood

Target anything - Glaring Spotlight, Shadowspear

Keep it up man! Really fun to play :)

I think this is a really cool deck idea. I think Lantern of Insight would provide much more value than Altar of the Brood and with more Codex Shredder you can try to trap lands on top for your opponent.

The deck seems a little weak to non-damage based removal such as Fatal Push, but I think it’s a really unique idea that has potential.

Some thoughts:

  • I don’t think Altar of the Brood helps you here. You’re never likely to mill your opponent out this way, and i’m not sure its a strategy you want to be pushing.

  • the upcoming card Consider seems useful for this deck, for helping you find Mirrodin Besieged while also filling your graveyard. Mishra's Bauble is also amazing for the same reason. Likewise, Chromatic Sphere and Chromatic Star hugely accelerate your gameplan - you could easily end up running a bunch of these effects and creating a very fast & consistent engine.

  • I’m surprised you’re not running more copies of Salvage Titan - it seems like a great way to fill the grave and accelerate your win.

  • You need Mirrodin Besieged to have a chance of winning: you should be running the full playset.

  • I don’t think you need Etherium Sculptor. It’s not an artifact, and most your stuff is cheap. I get it helps with Mystic Forge but that feels far too narrow a use-case (Personally i’d also ditch the forge).

  • Relic of Progenitus is better than Tormod's Crypt here because it draws you a card. This ties in with many of my suggestions above, bug you really want your artifacts to be cheap, and replace themselves. That way you’ll find your win condition quickly, and have the fuel required to achieve it fast.

Thanks rb701 for youre comment!

Yeah im still struggeling with the Sideboard, i never used the most Cards except for Golem's Heart and Pitiless Plunderer. So there is a lot to do here.

I never heard of Sands of Delirium but that seems to fit perfect in here combined with Blinkmoth Urn. I will definitly try it out!

But im not sure if i just should remove Blinkmoth Urn since i never really needed it and the deck is running pretty well at the moment.

Maybe i should put somthing like Grave Pact against creature heavy decks and something like Tormod's Crypt in?

Any other ideas what to Change?

At the Moment im thinking of something like this:

1 x Tormod's Crypt Graveyard hate

1 x Grave Pact Creatures

2 x Altar of the Brood more mill

2 x Shriekhorn after the three uses, can be sacrificed to Grinding Station an with Scrap Trawler it can bring back some "0" cost Cards. Also its another target after sacrificing Ichor Wellspring

1 x Locket of Yesterdays So we only need to pay the first Myr Servitor and against mill decks

1 x Profane Memento lifegain against aggro

4 x Feed the Swarm

1 x Summoning Station

1 x Genesis Chamber

1 x Pitiless Plunderer

Shameless plug Firja, Judge of Persistent Valor
You would think so and if your dredging you would be correct
But when your milling everyone with let's say Altar of the Brood+Mesmeric Orb I have found players become so focused on being milled they loose track of the concept that something like Living Death can drop a 4 card loop ending the game. I have consistently successfully pulled off this strategy even when people play against me multiple times. I mean your right they could Exile my gy, but they don't instead they always go after breaking the mill peaces thinking there gana loose to being decked.
