Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons Discussion

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

2 days ago

After some extensive playtesting I made two changes:

OUT:

  • 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.

IN:

  • 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.

Thanks!

Gidgetimer on Reality Scramble shenanigans

When multiple triggers have happened since the last time a player had priority the controllers put them in the stack in active player, non-active player (APNAP) order. If a single player controls more than one trigger they get to decide what order to put them on the stack and then they resolve in first in last out (FILO) order. So you get to decide what order the triggers go on the stack.

In this scenario casting Reality Scramble via retracing it will trigger Mirrorwing Dragon and Archfiend of Ifnir .

If you put the Archfiend trigger on the stack first Mirrorwing Dragon will resolve first (because of FILO ordering) making copies of Reality Scramble . You will make 2 copies and they will go on the stack above the -1/-1 counter ability. They will resolve first and Archfiend of Ifnir and Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons will not be on the battlefield when the counters are placed and you will not get snakes.

If you put the Dragon ability on the stack first the -1/-1 counters will be placed first. Hapatra will trigger off of the counters getting placed and her trigger(s) will go on the stack above the copy ability. Because of objects resolving FILO, the snakes will be created before the copy ability resolves and there will be a copy made for each snake.

TL;DR: Depending on how you order the triggers you will either get a copy for each snake or you will never have made snakes at all.

If I want to play Reality Scramble from the graveyard by discarding a land while having Mirrorwing Dragon , Archfiend of Ifnir and Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons on the battlefield (targeting Mirrorwing Dragon ), what would happen?

Mirrorwing Dragon will make copies of Reality Scramble as it is the only target.

Archfiend of Ifnir will distribute -1/-1 counters what will trigger my Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons to create some snakes.

Will the snakes be in play before Mirrorwing Dragon 's effect happens, so that i get a copy of the spell for every snake i created?

It all depends on who you're using as the commander. If you're using Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons you'll really want to focus it down. Are you looking for the -1/-1 counter part of it or the 1/1 snake tokens? Hapatra can go off very quickly with snakes.

Orochi Hatchery , Sosuke's Summons , Snake Pit , Serpent Generator are all good cards, even if the last one has a high cmc.
- ( Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons or Flourishing Defenses ) + Devoted Druid + ( Ivy Lane Denizen or ( Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + ( Swiftfoot Boots or Lightning Greaves )))= Infinite Mana + Infinite Deathtouch Snakes -( Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons or Flourishing Defenses ) + Cinderhaze Wretch + ( Ivy Lane Denizen or ( Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + ( Swiftfoot Boots or Lightning Greaves ))) = Infinitely Discard Opponents (during your turn) + Infinite Deathtouch Snakes - Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Woodfall Primus + Ashnod's Altar = Destroy all noncreature permanents + Infinite Mana -( Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons or Flourishing Defenses or Nest of Scarabs ) + Grim Poppet + Sculpting Steel = Infinite Tokens -( Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons or Flourishing Defenses or Nest of Scarabs ) + Blowfly Infestation = Infinite tokens entering and dying. NOTE: This needs to be used in conjunction with something else such as Blood Artist , Zulaport Cutthroat , or just another one of the cards listed above.

Hej hej,

I am Corbeau and just started to put my decks on here. I play casually with a nice playgroup. We don't play very competetive and love combo decks. I am usually the person with nearly no removal because I always think that if it doesn't help my strategy it isn't a card for my deck and I want the others to have fun, too. Also I feel restricted in my creativity when I think about the meta or so. So quite often I am in a race to get my deck going and keep my stuff because others don't hesitate do remove everything on my side. I love weird and janky deck strategies. The decks I have at the moment are the ones I play and the one that survived all the building of decks. Very often it is more brewing than playing because we don't get together that often and the EDH community in my city is very competetive. I prefer an environment in which people have fun and don't flame each other all the time.

My Decks at the Moment:

EDH: Alesha, Who Smiles at Death (Aristrocrats) Prime Speaker Zegana (Draw Combo) Prime Speaker Vannifar (Podless Pod) Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons (-1/-1 Counters) Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (Any Counters] Kess, Dissident Mage (Spellslinger) Ghave, Guru of Spores (+1/+1 Counters) Kambal, Consul of Allocation (Lifedrain Prison) Omnath, Locus of Rage (Landfall/Elemental) Daxos the Returned (Enchantress)

Oathbreaker: Saheeli, Sublime Artificer (Artifacts) Jace, Memory Adept (Milling) Liliana, Death's Majesty (Zombies) Liliana of the Dark Realms (Ramp/Shades) Kaya, Ghost Assassin (Flicker/Token)

Former Decks (I hope I remember all):

EDH: + Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (All cards with counters) Sun Quan, Lord of Wu (Milling) + The Scarab God (Milling) + Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive (Only power 1 or less/Tokens) Talrand, Sky Summoner (Spellslinger) Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (gravepact) Kozilek, the Great Distortion (Eldrazi) Sidisi, Brood Tyrant (Milling) Sidisi, Brood Tyrant (Reanimator) Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle (Historic/Reanimator) Nin, the Pain Artist (Artifacts) Nin, the Pain Artist (Milling) Odric, Lunarch Marshal (White Weenie) + Masako the Humorless (Historic/ Throne of the God-Pharaoh ) Padeem, Consul of Innovation (Artifacts) + Kiku, Night's Flower ( Kiku's Shadow / Ragged Veins ) Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (Spellsnatching) Sydri, Galvanic Genius (Beautiful Art/Control) Tatyova, Benthic Druid (Beautiful Art/Copy/Draw/Token) Karlov of the Ghost Council (Lifedrain) Obzedat, Ghost Council (Lifedrain) + Obzedat, Ghost Council (Flicker/Token) Akiri, Line-Slinger / Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist (Artifacts/Non-Voltron)

Sadly many of my decks didn't work because of the meta and power level in my playgroup but some were so much fun to play. Favorites marked with + at the front.

I will try to upload the decklists of my current decks. If you have questions about any of the former decks or anything just ask.

Love and happyness Corbeau

What's your opinion on adding Wrenn and Six ? I've been testing your list with some modifications, and I switched Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons for the walker, and frankly the +1 being able to fecth lands every turn makes to citadel runs so much more consistent.
