Beast Within Discussion

smiffdemon on Ishkanah Stuff

Hi Guint!! Here are some suggestions I think you could utilize for Ishkanah. So far it looks good!

The things we want to make sure you have in this deck are ways to activate delirium, as well as ways to activate Ish's tribal effects. Let's start with the spiders themselves~

Now onto the Delirium Mechanic. Making sure your own cards into the graveyard can seem counterproductive but a lot of things benefit from it. So first, how do we self mill?

Now for some super fun cards that benefit from a graveyard presence.

Now lets talk about Black and Green as colors in EDH. Black/Green has a few things that it needs to run undoubtedly. One of its major problems is card draw, so you're definitely going to want to auto-include Harmonize and Phyrexian Arena. I would also consider Lifecrafter's Bestiary.

Removal: Putrefy, Murder, Hero's Downfall, Abrupt Decay, Krosan Grip, Golgari Charm, Toxic Deluge, In Garruk's Wake, Acidic Slime, Beast Within. Dictate of Erebos to be used in conjunction with a sacrifice outlet like Ashnod's Altar (sac your extra tokens for mana!)

Protection: Asceticism, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Heroic Intervention

Tutors: Green Sun's Zenith, Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor

Ramp: Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Solemn Simulacrum, Sol Ring, Explosive Vegetation, Thran Dynamo, Commander's Sphere, Golgari Signet, Cryptolith Rite, Harrow, Crop Rotation, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder.


The only other thing I want to say about your deck is that you should probably up your land count to at least 36. 30 is usually too little for most EDH decks in my experience. Unless you're going super aggro, you'll find yourself short on a lot of land drops.

If you wanted to upgrade your lands, here are some relatively inexpensive things you could add:

Golgari Rot Farm, Command Tower, Jungle Hollow, Temple of Malady, Woodland Cemetery, Overgrown Tomb, Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, Grim Backwoods, Bojuka Bog, Hissing Quagmire, Temple of the False God, Drownyard Temple, Ghost Quarter, and any lands that Cycle in your colors :)

Maybe play this in a zoo style deck, An-Havva Constable can sync well with Burning-Tree Emissary. Folk of An-Havva just seems like an efficient trade off creature in the one drop slot, but there could be ways to make it work. Beastmaster Ascension if you can turn it on would work well for example, the other route being voltron and you build up the Folk of An-Havva.

You could also do green-white tokens style deck, stuff like Beast Within then becomes relevant. Saprolings come to mind, you can abuse a card like Life and Limb to create this type of effect. And follow this with support like Utopia Mycon and use Saproling Symbiosis as a finisher effectively doubling your already absurd amount of saprolings. Also note that if you have Life and Limb and then play Sporemound you get infinite saprolings but that this interaction can't be stopped unless you can disrupt the combo. This would make your An-Havva Constable extremely big and gain you a crap ton of life. To stop the combo consider Naturalize or Krosan Grip to get rid of the Life and Limb.

Also, you have counter spells but no removal.

Maybe run a Beast Within

Without Concordant Crossroads, Do we win with Beast Within all opponents' permanents and then Duplicant all the tokens with the returning with Temur Sabertooth?

KillerDuck03,
As folks have already mentioned on r/Infect, Infect is in a really bad place in the meta at the moment. Fatal Push is everywhere, and things like Wild Defiance (which nerfed Lightning Bolt) aren't helpful. I'm also not sure it's going to get better, since I expect to see Solemnity in lots of sideboards starting in mid-July.

All that said, I absolutely love UG Infect, and still play it periodically.

I know 4x Noble Hierarch is way out of range, but IMO 2x Birds of Paradise (for the fixing) and 2x Cathedral of War (for the Exalted trigger) are a very good budget replacement.

I'm TOTALLY with albino_ninja too on the need for more Creatures. As is, you're going to have to mul' more than you want, and the Black decks are really going to punish you for that with their hand disruption. Creatures with Infect are best of course: Ichorclaw Myr, Necropede, Blight Mamba, and Plague Myr all have different pros and cons ... IMO you can't go wrong with any of them. And maybe 1x Viridian Corrupter too. Another option I've seen some folks use: Sylvan Scrying, which basically acts like extra Inkmoths.

One more thought on Creatures: Because of all our pump spells, I'm always amazed at how often the deck can win with normal damage. So it might be worth looking at something like Invisible Stalker or Thrummingbird too.

Finding room for those Creatures is of course tough. I'm not a huge fan of Groundswell for this deck (it's much better with Fetchlands), so that's a place you can maybe find room. And while I REALLY like having 3 counterspells in the 75, I usually only run one in the main. You may also find you can put some of your protection in the side ... I know we need a TON in the current meta, but you may not actually have enough mana to use it. :-)

Some potential sideboard thoughts:

Sorry for the wall of text, and thanks for reading this far!

Draw well!
