Hour of Devastation Brews, pt. 2 – Abzan Hapatra

The reason I’m thinking about this is “Ammit Eternal”. Don’t know if that’s the real name, as it was spoiled in Japanese. The translation, via MythicSpoilers, reads like this:

“Ammit Eternal”
2B
Creature – Zombie Crocodile Demon
Afflict 3

Whenever an opponent casts a spell, put a -1/-1 counter on Ammit Eternal.

Whenever Ammit Eternal deals combat damage to a player, remove all -1/-1 counters from it.
5/5

That should work well with [card]Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons[/card]

I’m adding the white to play one card, but of course it also comes with sideboard options. That one card being [card]Grind // Dust[/card].

Should the deck try to incorporate [card]Archfiend of Ifnir[/card]? Not sure. It would be hard to do it, because many of the cycling cards just aren’t strong enough for constructed.

[card]Driven // Despair[/card] seems like something [card]Ammit Eternal[/card] would work well with, so I’ll put in one.

[deck]
[creatures]
4 Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons
4 Channeler Initiate
4 Exemplar of Strength
4 Ammit Eternal
4 Defiant Greatmaw
4 Crocodile of the Crossing

[spells]
4 Grind // Dust
1 Driven // Despair
2 Nest of Scarabs
2 Hapatra’s Mark
2 Fatal Push
[/spells]
[lands]
4 Concealed Courtyard
4 Blooming Marsh
4 Hissing Quagmire
4 Scattered Groves
4 Shambling Vent
5 Forest
[/lands]
[/deck]

I’ve tried to setup the manabase in such a way that if you have to play a black source tapped on turn one, you’ll probably be able to play a green source untapped on turn two. That’s why all the Forests.

  1. Now, with the full spoiler, I would definitely replace the Defiant Greatmaws with Obelisk Spiders.
