I always liked Necroskitter and Midnight Banshee. I wanted to do something with -1/-1 counters so I combined -1/-1 theme with a stealing/cloning theme and a proliferate kicker. I'm not a fan of infect so I tried to keep it out as much as possible but it does rear it's ugly head a bit.

I feel like there's too much UB "goodstuff" in here but it all is very helpful stuff! I'm definitely open to some suggestions.

There's a limited number of cards that interact with -1/-1 counters (especially if you're not focusing on infect), so you're basically stuck with some goodstuff filler. The only good way to open up more interactions with the -1/-1 counters is to add a third color, and then you lose the only general with a -1/-1 counter ability.

A Carnifex Demon with Unstable Mutation seems amusing though.

And if you like stealing, Biting Tethers is right up your alley.

I would suggest Takklemaggot, but that thing is way too jank, provides only -0/-1 counters, and is too low impact to really be viable--one damage a turn to one opponent just isn't enough.

That's just the first thing I thought of when I saw this deck.

Anyway, no Incremental Blight? I also agree you might need to include some good stuff--Mikaeus, the Unhallowed comes to mind to offset Carnifex Demon and Harbinger of Night, but I suppose I don't know how your group feels seeing that guy.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is pretty strong in this sort of thing. He interacts with -1/-1 counters.

Grim Poppet isn't terrible. Its overcosted, sure, but its better than some stuff. You might find more ideas in my adun oakenshield list (link in sig).

Yeah, unstable carnies always make for an exciting show :)

If someone played Takklemaggot against me, I might scoop just to avoid reading the card.

Grim Poppet + Blowfly Infestation will let you machinegun all the X/1's down.

What, Torture got reprinted? Man. I've seen that twisted art too many times when I was cracking packs in search of that illustrious Baron Sengir... Anyway, I played Takklemaggot in my Ramses Overdark deck, and it's just too slow. The Legends black card frame looks awesome though, especially the text box cramped with that wall of text. What you could borrow from that deck though is Crystal Chimes. And Skull of Orm if you like crap.
