Blight Mamba Discussion

Needs more Infect my man, Grafted Exoskeleton should do the trick. Corrupted Conscience is also good, especially when your opponent has a 10/10+, although you can just put it on a Bane of Progress to blow someone out immediately. And let's not forget Blight Mamba which is literally just an infect snake.

This deck could also benefit from some added draw condition, Coastal Piracy is essentially a second Bident of Thassa. Kindred Discovery is the big one though, it just draws you so much.

I may have mentioned this before, but Stoneforge Masterwork is crazy in this deck. Hadana's Climb  Flip Does similar things here.

Lastly, I think there is room for 2 to 3 more counterspells. Negate, Arcane Denial, Disallow, Forbid, and Swan Song are all good here.

Sweet brew! Some suggestions:

Sub Seal of Strength for Llanowar Augur. Harder to hit with removal for most decks

Land Grant to lower land count and freely fetch

Blight Mamba - 8 infect creatures is just too few imo, as an occasional infect player

Gut Shot for sideboard

For an Infect deck, there aren't many Infect creatures. I recommend Glistener Elf, Plague Stinger, Blight Mamba, Ichorclaw Myr, and Necropede because they are cheap and you can get them out early. Selfless Spirit is another Dauntless Escort effect.

Hello! Here are my cut suggestions.

Gonna second DrukenReaps here and confirm that 36 lands and 9 ramp is sufficient for your deck.

1) Dark Ritual one time ramp isn't as good in EDH as it is elsewhere

2) Warped Landscape too expensive for what it does. I'd rather run a land of the color I need more usually.

3) Golgari Keyrune and

4) Golgari Cluestone. Been cutting these in a lot of my decks. Most % of your curve in 3 cmc so you don't want to be playing mana rocks then. You could ad in more 2 cmc mana rocks if you feel like you still need the ramp. Much more useful early and don't slow you down as much late game.

5) Terramorphic Expanse Don't really need it in 2 color.

To differ from DrunkenReaps, I'd advise to stay away from infect, as it will get some hate that can occasionally turn a table against you.

6) Blight Mamba

7) Blightwidow

8) Phyrexian Swarmlord

9) Spinebiter

These cuts will lower your curve to relieve pressure on your your mana base, or free up your 2 drop spot so you can play Hapatra.

Last cut. When cutting stuff I always start at the top of the curve. That is:

Liliana, Death Wielder

I know she does what you want the deck to do and all, but at what cost man?? 7 mana for either a) a single -1/-1 counter on a creature, or b) a kill spell. Either way not efficient at all. And the ultimate, which you'll rarely get to in multiplayer, isn't all that great. Especially down the road if you use more Undying combos.

Hope some of this helps! Good luck!

lukas96 Thanks for the comment. I do like Blight Mamba, and it's regenerate ability is cool. However, when playing with this deck, I do not usually notice a lack of creatures,and adding it in would mean having to take out a pump spell, which this deck needs a lot of. I don't think this deck really has a good spot for Mamba to fill. However, thanks for the suggestion.

I understand where you are going with Blight Mamba, but you shouldn't have 2 mana open for regeneration. When you play an infect creature, your goal is to tap out next turn and kill your opponent. Leaving open 2 mana is too much of a commitment. Ichorclaw Myr would be better because it self-pumps, fore free, and with the self-pump will more reliably kill opposing creatures.

Okay, so first off, you need to finish the playset of Inkies. They dodge removal and make your opponents choices much harder. If possible, pick up fetch lands (Windswept Heath, Verdant Catacombs, Wooded Foothills). They fuel delve, clear lands out of the deck for later turns, and make the deck more consistent. For creatures Blight Mamba is meh, I would rather play more pump spells. If possible get Noble Hierarch, they cost a hefty price tag but make the deck so much better. Now to pumps. Virulent Swipe and the like are awful in Modern. You need Blossoming Defense, because in a world without Gitaxian Probe and with Fatal Push, etc. Hexproof is highly important to keep your creatures alive. Might of Old Krosa is +4/+4 for G, so it easily replaces some of your sub optimal choices. My personal list is Blue Green, but you may be able to learn something from the primer. Deadly Neurotoxin
