This is a great early pick in a draft if you aren't sure if you want to go Infect or not, since its playable in just about every type of deck.

While infect creatures tend to be on the aggressive side, this one is actually best as a chump blocker. barring first strike, Necropede leaves a scar on whatever it blocked and gets to toss another counter either on the same creature or on another one. It creates a mini-plague ripe for proliferation.

Deceptively strong card.

Good for infect; otherwise, Perilous Myr does the job just fine everywhere else.

To the people saying this can backfire, unless your opponent is taking your turn, this can't backfire because you "may put a -1/-1 counter on target creature".

Had fun with him on a Prototype Portal.

Unlike most infect creatures, I actually wouldn't run this in an infect deck. I think it works much better as an early creature drop in a control deck to help stall... It can really slow down lots of types of aggro decks.

Hint: In SOM limited, you never attack with this guy, and if possible you never let him tap. I included him in a green-white metalcraft deck at a recent FNM and it always felt great when I drew and played him as my only infect creature. That deck won the FNM

I'd take him over blight mamba any day. Blight mamba wants to be in the same kind of decks that doesn't leave mana open for his regen cost so it rarely comes into play. But for colorless mana you get this guy instead with an effect that always comes in handy.
Practically unblockable if your opponent has a really valuable X/1 out.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
