Fevered Convulsions


(2)(Black)(Black): Put a -1/-1 counter on target creature.

PartyJ on Nath of the STAX-Leaf | cEDH | Primer

3 years ago

After some extensive playtesting I made two changes:


  • Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons : Mid/endgame I never truely found its potential. Most of the time I was hoping for another card.
  • Fevered Convulsions : Endgame I see the potential, but when it comes to these stages of the game I usually locked the table to find out it's a winmore card. In your opening hand and midgame it's just a dead card with a costly ability.


  • Sensei's Divining Top : After an absense I felt the appeal to give it a slot again. More hand sculpting options with the shuffle effect on fetch lands can give you an edge when you are looking for options/answers.

  • Rankle, Master of Pranks : I am not sure about the viability of this card in the deck. Perhaps it is meta dependant, but the 3 triggers that are relevant the turn it comes under your control warrant some playtesting.

Looking forward to play with Nath. If you have any questions, then let me know.

I also saw some comments about the primer on top, which couldn't be read. Let me know if you can open and read the content... or not.


ClockworkSwordfish on Vhati il-Dal Old School Commander!

With Vhati's ability to set a creature's toughness to 1, why not take advantage of that opportunity by including some more ways to pick that creature off? Bullwhip , Masticore and Triskelion can all pick off a shrunken-down critter with ease, as could anything that reduces toughness: Fevered Convulsions , Phyrexian Plaguelord and Nefashu can do the trick, too.

Midnight Banshee seems like it would be amazing with Yawg.

A couple of old school cards that may work well are Serrated Arrows and Fevered Convulsions . Slow but steady sources of -1/-1 counters.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would be a great addition as well. I know it's not cheap but it is less expensive than Cabal Coffers and won't require a combo with Tomb to work.

Not sure what Command Tower is being used for. Is there a reason to not use just another basic Swamp?

JuQ on That Girl Is Poison - budget Hapatra

Witherscale Wurm taking wither damage won't trigger Hapatra, so there is not much point for him in he deck.

Are you really creating enough tokens to make Bloodflow Connoisseur , Bloodthrone Vampire and Carrion Feeder worthwhile? In my experience with myhapatra deck, the snakes are way to valuable to be sacrificed for a mere +1/+1 counter or +2/+2 until EoT on some creature with no evasion.

Fevered Convulsions , and Gnarled Effigy look terribly unefficient, for mana for a -1/-1 is way too much. I used to run Serrated Arrows and Trigon of Corruption but I ended up cutting them, maybe they could work fine in your deck as you are going strong on Proliferate. Now I'm testing Serrated Biskelion but I'm not completely sold on it, you know you never get to draw the cards you are trying out...

Decimator of the Provinces is also way too costly, even if you emerge it, and all the trouble just for a wide +2/+2 trample; a simple Overrun would give you a better bang for your mana. Predatory Rampage will wipe most of your oponent's creatures and Revenge of the Hunted is a one player board wipe. I also find Loyal Guardian to be an underrated card to spread counters on your creatures.
Canker Abomination will only get you a snake no matter how many counters it gets, so in the best case scenario it would be a 5/5 with one snake for four mana, its not really worth the deck slot. There are many creatures in the Amonkhet block that will do just that but better.

on the evasion department I would definetly cut Tawnos's Wand , Hot Soup has a bit of a drawback, but Hapatra only has toughness 2, so it won't be a big difference anyway and the card is really funny. Trailblazer's Boots is a bit more expensive, but I would still consider it a budget card.

These kind of decks are supper weak against board wipes, so I'd encourage you to include Golgari Charm or Wrap in Vigor .The best card for that task would be Heroic Intervention but it's getting more and more expensive every day.

If you want to check my Hapatra deck, it's this one Hapatra's death hosts

Cheers, fellow Greven player! ;) Sweet list!

Mine is much more budget but feel free to suggest things. I’m still trying to get my hands on all the Greven-flavor cards: Fevered Convulsions , Servant of Volrath , Scare Tactics , Diabolic Edict , and Sadistic Glee .

How has the deck played for you?

WushuTea on Combo? Where We're Going, We Don't Need Combo

Coinman1863 I understand the inclusions now and have also experienced having extra mana regularly but little to do with it at times. Fevered Convulsions is a great find! Thank you for the detailed response!

WushuTea first and foremost, thanks for liking the deck! This has been a long passion project for me and it's always great to hear other people are getting use out of it as well.

To answer your questions, Ravenous Slime was included as another GY hatebear which helps us beat Hulk and other similar GY strategies. The major upside is that it can be GSZ'd or Chorded for if need be, which makes it much more accessable for us than other options.

Fevered Convulsions was added for two reasons:

  1. I always seemed to make lots of extra mana without having much to do with it.
  2. With all the Tymna the Weaver decks around -1/-1 counters matters a lot. Also gives us more targeted removal than before with high re-usability.

Hope this helps and if you have any questions, please ask!
