Have you considered the combination of Zada with Silverfur Partisan. He gets you a load of tokens and with Zada it's when any wolf gets targeted so you can just swarm the board with wolf tokens. also have you considered Apostle's Blessing? It's absolutely fantastic with Zada for a big swing against mono color decks or even Affinity. Also maybe you could run Gut Shot with the Silverfur Partisan and also Blossoming Defense for decks that try to kill all of your guys.

IMO

-4 Temur Battle Rage (too expensive to be casting)

-3 Assault Strobe

-4 Young Pyromancer (doesn't work well with all your pump effects)

+1 Apostle's Blessing

+2 Tainted Strike (the biggest reason you play RB over UR is this card, RB trades consistency for explosiveness)

+4 Nivmagus Elemental

+4 Ground Rift

You might want to squeeze in an Apostle's Blessing to fetch so your combo doesn't scoop to Path to Exile or Terminate.

Oops, totally missed the Apostle's Blessings already in your sideboard. Sorry!

maneeper,
Nice build, at a VERY nice price-point.

A few things I've not seen mentioned yet:

  • Against most decks, Apostle's Blessing offers a nice mix of protection and unblockable.
  • I'm frankly not sure I'd invest a ton of money in upgrades at this time ... I absolutely LOVE Infect, but it's in a really bad place in the meta right now, and it may get even worse (depending on how much play Solemnity sees).
  • 2x Cathedral of War and 2x Birds of Paradise can do a reasonable (and MUCH more reasonably-priced) imitation of 4x Noble Hierarchs. Unfortunately, there's really no budget replacement for the Inkmoths.
  • You may already know this, but just in case not: Vines is worded even better than hexproof, because you can target an opponent's creature too, in response to a pump spell or ability (like Modular or Equip) and prevent them from buffing their own dude!

Wishing you the best of luck (and skill) with the build!

Okay, so if you're ever so slightly going to be five color, then I'll just casually mention that Orzhov Charm is basically perfect for this deck. Terminate is the most similar card to cut in my mind, but that is without playtesting.

A card I find super hard to pull off, but maybe worth it, is Phyrexian Unlife. It does specifically translate damage only to infect, so straight life loss from say cycling Street Wraith or the above Charm's second ability will not give you poison counters when you get low. See also Apostle's Blessing?

To stop myself from getting too far, could you tell me why you're turning to five colors in the first place? Is there certain cards that drew you to it or is there just some stuff you feel is missing that adding white might solve? Admittedly I do figure you gain some advantage in your land base being more Mana Confluence type cards.

I think it's pretty ambitious to run 4 Crop Rotations with only 3 Forest and 1 Wooded Foothills. Since you're not using Green to fill out your sideboard, I'd recommend just going colorless. You're going the aggressive combo route, so you don't really need to go all-in on assembling your Posts. Dropping Green gives you some nice utility lands in Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth which lets your Eye of Ugin tap for real mana, which can ramp out your Eldrazi faster and lets you cast your non-Eldrazi like Lodestone Golem off of it (and this is a corner case but it allows you to actually cast a Leyline of the Void you happen to draw). And if you can get your hands on one or two, Ancient Tomb is a house. Again, if you drop green, the Crop Rotations can be replaced with more creatures (Endless One), more interaction (Dismember), and/or protection (Apostle's Blessing).

Have you thought about running Walking Ballista at all? It seems oppressive with Post mana.

Love Post and love Eldrazi +1
