personally id go with Apostle's Blessing it can be used anytime, because flash with instant, and when you do swing you pay 2 life and use that neutral unspent mana, and name a color of a possible chump blocker, rendering it useless. Mutagenic Growth is a good secondary option but is more limited, mechanically, yet is easier to use because it technically doesnt need mana to cast. if after some play testing you find that most of your combo cannot be pulled off before turn 3, which is likely, I'd run Assault Strobe which would allow you to kill the chump blockers that dont have first strike and then swing again right away for another 10.

go 4 Apostle's Blessing and 4 Assault Strobe under the assumption that you wont have the perfect hand, and a mulligan draw already fucks your opportunity for for a turn 2 victory. reduce flamekin harbinger by 2, its only a tutor. Manalith isnt really working for what you are trying for too. Browbeat gives your opponent choice, near the end, where depending on what pieces you do have out, determine if they should take the punch in the face or to give you more cards to let you punch them in the face with, and doesnt really work for you with this type of deck. build your deck online and playtest it to your liking.

I think this is a very solid start. I would suggest just not using the evolving wilds they are WAY to slow for infect. also see if you can get your hands on Scale Up and Apostle's Blessing the scale up gets easy turn two kills with might of old korosa. the apostle's blessing protects and helps get your infecty crew in. also two Pendelhaven would help

as i mentioned Apostle's Blessing may be your best bet because you can use that 1 neutral mana to make your chaser safe against a single color blocker, with the cost of 2 life.

this deck is impossible to win on turn 2, its a shame. because once your opponent realized how much is sunk into the combo, you are pooched. Mutagenic Growth can save your critical pieces from many red removal spells at the minor cost of life and cards like Groundswell or Phytoburst can make your brightheart or smokescreener a valuable tool to finish the job with fling, if you chose to splash dual color lands like Rootbound Crag or Stomping Ground Apostle's Blessing like mutagenic growth can work to protect your critical pieces, and can ensure your nova chaser stays alive from a 2/1 blocker on turn 2. Assault Strobe is another goodie to protect your nova chaser thanks to that double strike damage

I would love to do all of those suggestions, but adding more spells is dangerous. There are already more spells than creatures, which is dangerous for any deck, so I hesitate to add more. Suggestions to replace Apostle's Blessing in the sideboard would be great, though!

If you can suggest cards to take out for Boros Charm , that'd be great.

I already have Tenth District Legionnaire in the deck.

Spathinator Thanks! I missed that when I checked to see if everything was legal. Any suggestions to replace it? I have Brave the Elements in right now, but I mainly had Apostle's Blessing in for the artifact protection.

Rorolith I know, but the Theros block is Pioneer legal, so it's just a TappedOut problem.

enpc on Does this look infected?

Since you don't have any trample-esque effects, I would recommend loking at white's many protection options to help close games out:

Apostle's Blessing , Gods Willing , Emerge Unscathed , Shelter (if you want some card draw).

Perhaps a few Inkmoth Nexus 's for some flying infect.

you also have the new Winds of Abandon to clear the board for lethal.

Ah, but you have 4 Legendary creatures at the same CMC as Vizier, so I don't really get how Anafenza is better than Vizier. Because you can't have multiple copies of Anafenza in play, it seems like that card makes it easier to disrupt your combo.

I also don't see how protecting one creature is better than protecting all of them, especially considering you will often need 2 creatures to execute the combo. That said, among the various protect-a-single-creature spells, I think Faith's Shield is better than Gods Willing because the Shield can protect things like Solemnnity, Phyrexian Unlife, heck even a land. And if you are down to 5 or less life, say against a burn deck, it can protect everything, including yourself, which is pretty amazing for 1. The other card worth mentioning is Apostle's Blessing , as it's the only one that can protect against artifacts. But I hate the extra cost.

Perhaps this is just a personal taste thing, but I also think your deck name could be better. Say, something like, "Self Persistance" or "Forget to Die." While the current title is very clear, it lacks a certain ring/allure.
