Hapatra kills her own.
Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons Buy + Obelisk Spider Buy + Blowfly Infestation Buy
With all three cards in play, find a way to place a -1/-1 counter on one of Hapatra's snake tokens - not hard to do these cards. Placing the counter causes a "create a snake" trigger, the current snake dies, which causes a new -1/-1, which goes on the new snake. Repeat, and each time they lose 1 life and you gain 1.

Unfortunately, this does not go infinite. The reason is that all targets must be declared as the spell or ability are placed on the stack - before anything else has resolved. This means that the snake token does not get created until after you choose a target for the Blowfly trigger.

What will end up happening is one of two things. Either you put a counter on something that doesn't die and the cycle stops, or you sort of just end up running out of creatures on the field that die immediately to a -1/-1 counter and you are stuck putting it on something that doesn't die and the cycle stops.

You'll never need two 1/1s first is all.

When snake 1 gets a counter, it'll die as a state-based action, meaning that Hapatra and the Infestation will both trigger, and you'll have to choose target for the Infestation. Target Snake 2, then put Hapatra's trigger on the stack. She'll resolve first, So Snake 3 is in the board when Snake 2 dies. Repeat.
