Become Immense Discussion
5 days ago
I’ll try to answer your questions in order.
In relation to the investment, if you have $30 a month to spend I would spend it like this: 1 Inkmoth Nexus and 1 Windswept Heath 4 times, then 1 Wooded Foothills and 1 Pendelhaven 2 times, both Breeding Pool one time, then the last 2 Flooded Strand the last month. That’s the most expensive part is the land base in 8 months.
If possible, buying all of the inkmoth nexus at the same time would be ideal, but the previous plan I laid out also works. The positive point of that is every month that you invest your deck it’s a little bit better and so you’ll start seeing better results almost immediately.
Definitely get those birds of paradise or noble hierarchs. You’ll start to see an immediate difference.
Slip Through Space is one of those cards that a lot of people have a Lotta different opinions on based on your playing style. Personally, I prefer getting to spell’s for the price of one, just because it makes your creatures that much harder to play around for your opponent.
Become a man’s is, like you said, not terribly essential, but it does make for some seriously busted play.
Mono Redburn isn’t our best matchup, but with my version it is capable to out race their burn. The biggest point with burn is you need to be careful with your own fetch/shock and you need to find a good big turn to go off.In those games, I almost always bring in my three sideboard Wild Defiance to mostly ruin my opponent’s targeted burn. In that kind of game, you’re going to be using a lot of your protection spells like vines of the vast word and Become Immense to save your creatures until you can stick wild defiance. That’s also a really good game to bring in some sideboard copies of Spellskite .

Greetings, fellow Phyrexian!
Itachi45, High Counsel of Jin-Gitaxias, coming in for a comment.
The list looks pretty OK for a budget deck. I’m sure you know that tear one will require some upgrades, but what you’re doing is pretty much exactly what I’ve done with my list, and it’s pretty close to the optimal list the pros are playing at GPs and pro tours. Brother, That Looks... Infected
My first and biggest suggestion to make , with any infect list I advise on, is realestate. Breeding Pool , fetches, and Inkmoth Nexus Are the single biggest price cards that you’ll buy for the deck. The reason is because they are really good! Especially Nexus; I ran a version of this deck that had no Nexus and it was positively miserable to play.
My second suggestion would be looking at my list and comparing it to what spells you’re playing, particularly the creatures. The biggest draw that blue green in fact has is the fact that when you are able to get a good hand it is extremely explosive. If you look in my description I even describe a pretty reasonable turn 2 kill that’s possible with the deck. Not with the version that you have currently, but that’s irrelevant.
Your augurs really need to be either Birds of Paradise or Noble Hierarch . I have birds of paradise, because noble hierarchs are $40-$60 a piece and that’s rough. The fact that it is mana fixing plus your cathedral of war in the form of one creature is why it’s so good, but it’s still expensive. I find birds of paradise to be an acceptable budget option. I’m not too big on speaker climber, again because you’re looking for an explosive start and that’s a creature that has an effect that actually wants it to be blocked.
Artful Dodge is cute, but Distortion Strike is strictly better.
Lastly, 4x Apostle's Blessing DOES NOT need to be a 4-of. I’d SO easily trade 2-3 of those in for some copies of Become Immense , especially once you can get your hands on some fetchlands (It just occurred to me that you may or may not know what the twins are, but they are things like Flooded Strand , Windswept Heath , Wooded Foothills , Misty Rainforest , which are the most common ones that you see and infect lists.)
All in all, I like what you got going on and I hope that your additions help you find great success and future tournaments!

I was initially running a couple Serum Visions as a cantrip and to fuel Become Immense , but found it was too slow. I like Mishra's Bauble as it accomplishes similar goals, but is free and gives some information on my opponent's draws.
Invisible Stalker is helpful against Jund or Death's Shadow, even burn. Targeted removal is our biggest issue (which these decks run plenty of), so the permanent hexproof gets around that. Additionally, these decks hurt themselves quite a bit (shocklands, fetchlands, Dark Confidant , Eidolon of the Great Revel , etc.), so the fact that he is missing infect doesn't hurt too much. I would consider running 4x, but it's difficult to make room in an already tight sb.

The flavour text on hot soup is hysterical!
Devoted Druid is dirt cheap since the reprint... used for infinite mana though

The_Cardinal - It's great yet it's just for 6 mana and at turn 3-4, it's kind of hit or miss since Inkmoth Nexus + Mutagenic Growth on turn 2 for 3 and then turn 3 doing a Giant Growth for 4 (7 total), turn 4 doesn't hold merit holding a Become Immense when there's only 2 delve and 3-4 mana to use it and then nothing to cast it on. Titanic Growth would be a better replacement, especially keeping on curve and total CMC of the deck down now that I'm thinking about it.
The only green card that has flying AND infect is Blightwidow and that really doesn't have flying and is CMC 4.
