Apostle's Blessing Discussion

Since this is infect, it's primarily aggro. Every turn you waste is a turn that a Death's Shadow will get bigger, a chance for a Delver of Secrets to flip, and another chance for a control deck to draw an answer. Infect is supposed to win before any deck can answer it. Most infect decks out there lose if they don't win by turn 3 because after that point it's burnt out its hand and the other guy drew removal. I would cut everything more than 3 mana and run a more aggressive aggressive mana base with fewer basics and more shocks and fetches because you don't care about the long game or the long game threats of opponents will create. If you're willing to add blue, I would recommend Blighted Agent. If not, then Apostle's Blessing is great because it's basically a 1 mana spell that makes your creatures unblockable under the right circumstances. I would cut Contagion Clasp, Thoughtseize, some of the Inquisition of Kozileks, and Phyrexian Swarmlord for more Fatal Push and pump spells. Beyond that, you should take a good hard look at every card on this list and ask yourself "How will this win me the game by turn 3-4 and is there a better alternative?" You only need 10 poison counters to lose the game so basically every creature you have does double damage in a sense. Just try to maximize the value you get from that basic idea.

You're forgetting Blossoming Defense and Vines of Vastwood, as well as Apostle's Blessing should honestly take the place of pact MB. And since you're BUG SB Phyrexian Crusader wouldn't hurt to deal with many matchups

No way. +1

you could also use Apostle's Blessing or Mizzium Skin if you need some shielding, also because Mizzium gives a +0/+1 and the Blessing makes the creature unblockable if you are against a monocolored deck

Apostle's Blessing is super good and can be sideboarded in against burn/control matchups. Either that or Brave the Sands, so that you can keep all your white creatures alive. They'll both usually cost you the same, I'm sure.

Logics - Thought Scour Seems like a really good card here. Instant speed cantrips are pretty good for infect right now and fueling delve off of that is pretty smart. Guess I never learned a thing or two from my games with Death's Shadow after all lol. I do have a few from some iconic masters packs I think.

I agree with what you say about Shapers' Sanctuary, and if I were to take the deck to a modern open or something I would make that change. But in the meta that I play this deck I do think that a 1 of mainboard is good. Every time I've played it it's drawn me so many cards. It sounds like you might do more competitive play than I do, and what you suggest is probably better for magic online players and more competitive paper players.

I have thought about removing a land from the deck but i don't know what one to take out. I think my only option is a fetchland, as I'm only running one Pendelhaven in this version of infect. I think Thought Scour would be a fine replacement for that land, maybe go down the Peek, a Spell Pierce, and maybe the maindeck Apostle's Blessing for a full playset of those. My question for you though. If we start running Thought Scour should we go to a full playset of Become Immense? Would wanting 4 of those mean only 3 Thought Scours?

Right now I have a Ratchet Bomb in the sb as my kind of Engineered Explosives, but I do find myself swapping the 2 illness in the ranks for 2 more Ratchet Bombs every once in a while.

You have kind of persuaded me on the jvp vs search argument. I had one a while ago but sold it because I wanted to pick up some Fatal Pushes for the sb so rip.

Again, your help is very much appreciated. This list is kind of my own disgusting infect baby after only about a year of playing infect full time in modern so advice like yours is very important. I think we can make a pretty kick ass deck together. Both of us definitely know infect needs some help atm also

Not gonna lie, this deck looks like a pretty good way to get yourself 2 for 1nd. I'd lean on something a little different than dispel with all the sorcery and aura type removal in pauper. Some other cards to consider may be Apostle's Blessing or Hyena Umbra. Cool synergies though, hope you find this comment helpful!

Howdy,I have been working on one myself too. These have been some good cards for me. I am assuming you are wanting to attack fast and powerfully. I think some instants and more card draw would be important to increasing your effectiveness quickly and protecting your creatures from removal once they know how much damage you can do with a double strike kitty. If you are not used to Protection from color cards... they are AWESOME. Useful for unblockability, targeting prevention, and damage prevention.

Powerup;-Forgotten Ancient, Overwhelming Stampede, Inquisitor's Flail, O-Naginata, Phytoburst, Larger Than Life, Mirror Entity(obviously only really good if you have a bunch of creatures)

Powerup Instants; Vines of Vastwood, Titanic Growth, Might of Old Krosa, Invigorate, Become Immense, Berserk

Card Draw; Rogue's Gloves, Mask of Memory, Infiltration Lens, (absolutely these 3) Hunter's Prowess, Momentous Fall, Rishkar's Expertise, Soul's Majesty.

Creature Protection/Unblockability; Mother of Runes, Gods Willing, Emerge Unscathed, Brave the Elements, Apostle's Blessing, Blossoming Defense, Heroic Intervention

Utility Card; Mirage Mirror, If you haven't used this card be prepared for its versatility. It is so good!

Also you may want to increase your amount of removal.

+1. Never thought about Tibalt in a Madness deck. Solid idea. Also, Apostle's Blessing would be a decent SB card for you, since you dont seem to have any other way to protect your creatures.
