Thanx for your reply! Yes, Sheoldred, the Apocalypse is great. I've been considering changing Tergrid with her. =) Torment of Hailfire was opted out from the deck, because it was too strong and.. not very interactive, I guess. It somehow had the same outcome each time: generate 15+ mana, tutor > hellfire > win, if not counterd. I've decided it was not with the casual theme of the deck.

Geth's Grimoire is good, but the payoff of drawing cards seemed redundant in this deck. Tinybones, Trinket Thief is cheaper and at least gives black devotion for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Gray Merchant of Asphodel, but I do not like that his activated ability will probably never be used in such a deck.

Worst Fears is surprisingly good here, because with big draw engines it gives you a lot of options of messing up with opponent plans with there own cards (also you choose what to give to Tergrid, if she is in play)

Nice deck! Have you considered Sheoldred, the Apocalypse? Seems tailor-made for a deck that forces lots of draw. Geth's Grimoire can also be very beneficial for you, to profit from opposing discards even more. Same goes for Tinybones, Trinket Thief. I would also really recommend Torment of Hailfire as it's absolutely devastating in here on multiple levels.

To make room for these changes I would recommend top remove K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth, Murderous Rider, Profane Command and Worst Fears.

Love the deck. I have a good friend who plays a Hapatra deck and they usually win every time. Pitiless Plunderer, Chatterfang, Squirrel General, and Yawgmoth, Thran Physician provide infinite card draw and creature removal, as well as in this case infinite snakes, as long as you have enough life. Sheoldred, the Apocalypse can help with that! Also, my friend has a combo with Devoted Druid and some other card to make it so that x=36 on turn 7 with Torment of Hailfire.

Looks like fun. I think it could really benefit from Wound Reflection. Also it would seem to make sense to put in Torment of Hailfire as it synergizes well with all the additional draw you're forcing on the opposition. The new Elder Brain would also slot in nicely.

Hey honestly this current build is pretty solid. Skullclamp came to mind and since you are running Bitterblossom and Ophiomancer there is some synergy that could argue for the extra-card draw.

I also saw you are running Dismember not a bad card by any means, but what about Tragic Slip? Personally I find it preforms better in this slot, sure it isn’t as versatile but creature deaths are very common and you have the means to force creature deaths to where the -13/-13 is most likely going to be the outcome.

Razaketh, the Foulblooded is expensive in both money and mana but it wins games. Pay two life to tutor is gross.

Harvester of Souls is a personal favorite but I don’t know if you have enough creatures to justify it.

Agadeem's Awakening  Flip there really isn’t a reason not to run this card in most black decks. Worst case its a swamp that costs you 3 life to play early game. late game it can bring back anything that was removed in the early game. It’s super-flexible strongly recommend it.

I’m going to suggest Bubbling Muck. I love Dark Ritual early game but the bubbles is so strong late game, especially if you are going to win by casting Torment of Hailfire.

Lastly Darkness. Really love a fog in a non-green color, especially with this deck. I see anyone playing this deck quickly turning into the archenemy of the table since most do not like stack effects which is what this deck is. Feign Death is a cool card since it can save a creature from a broad range of removal but I still think Reanimate or Darkness would be a better card in that slot.

Anyways hope this helped, great deck!

You should add some spells with X in their mana cost to end the game once you have all the treasures. Torment of Hailfire would work well if it fit your colors.

Have you thought about Barter in Blood, Pelakka Predation  Flip, Torment of Hailfire, and Distended Mindbender?

Also, Geier Reach Sanitarium seems ugly in this deck.

Finally, Acererak the Archlich is a bit of a strange inclusion, but given that it can venture into Tomb of Annihilation and try to force discards and sacrifices, it seems really good.
