I run a mono green infect deck that can consistently get turn 2-4 win, so i can help you with the green side of your deck. One thing to know is that in an infect deck you want maximun consistency so you should have all the cards in your deck to be in it 4 times.

Good buffs; Invigorate, Giant Growth, Groundswell, Scent of Ivy, Seal of Strength, Rancor

infectors: Ichorclaw Myr, Blight Mamba Glistener Elf

I second swapping Cathedral of War for Inkmoth Nexus. I prefer to think of Nexus as a creature, one that is often more useful than Blight Mamba or Necropede. It just happens to have the added flexibility of being a land that doesn't enter tapped. If you can afford to play a land tapped, you're not playing the fastest version of infect, and if you're not playing the fastest version, there isn't really a reason to play infect at all. (Nexus is $20 while Cathedral is $1 for a reason.) By this same logic, I wouldn't run any equipment. The 2 mana you spend casting and equipping Infiltration Lens could be spent casting 2 buffs to win the game immediately. And if you spent 4 mana to give Livewire Lash to a Glistener Elf only to have it Path to Exiled, you'd really wish the Lash was just an Apostle's Blessing or Vines of Vastwood instead. Finally, I think Groundswell is still underrated for infect. Whether it's a good replacement for Phytoburst may depend on how ready you are to gamble for high risk and high reward.

I'd just go green. Those tap lands just slow you down.

So I'd cut Blighted Agent for Blight Mamba.

Shadow Rift and Distortion Strike for Predator's Strike

Gitaxian Probe and/or Lotus Petal if you have no budget.

Good morning all.

I enjoy making mono-green versions of lots of different kinds of decks and lately Infect has caught my attention. The core of the deck is pretty standard, but I'm torn regarding the inclusion of a handful of cards and the necessary changes to synergize well with them. Since I've played very little infect - with or against - I'm hoping that some on here can offer a better perspective.

Core of the Deck:

There are other key buffs, obviously, but which ones and how many are dictated by the cards I'm trying decide on. The first of these is Infiltration Lens. Its incredibly cheap and offers tremendous card-drawn, especially considering that the draws happen when a creature is blocked but before damage is assigned - considering how many instants this deck runs that's a real boon. It also has nice synergy with Ichorclaw Myr .

The way I'm planning on filling out the rest of the deck if I decide to include Infiltration Lens is below:

I'm also sorely tempted to include one or two Wild Defiance in this version of the deck, which can be seen here: The Green Sting.

On the other hand, there are two cards which seem potentially devastating with an Infect strategy, but don't interact so well with some of the usual deck staples. The first is Canopy Cover, which offers hexproof AND evasion for a fairly inexpensive price. The other is Livewire Lash, a fantastic piece of equipment that gives you an additional way to get your poison counters through, effectively turning all of your buffs into 'Poison Shocks' as well. The only drawback it has is that its just a tad slow for speed one normally expects out of an Infect deck, but these two cards definitely make the deck more powerful and more sustainable should you get into the mid-game. In this case I would add something like this:

This version of the deck can be seen here: The Green Sting II

I'm really torn between these approaches, between the outright speed of the first option and the inevitability of the second or some hybrid version where I ditch the equipment completely and tweaks the buffs around Canopy Cover. Whichever way I go, the card balance will be key. Any thoughts would be most appreciated.

you should think of Virulent Sliver instead of Blight Mamba

So you got rid of your creatures W/ trample and your "unblockables" for infect! this has became a totally different deck boy how this deck changed since last I seen it, but at its current state I recommend Blight Mamba so you can regenerate if you have to, and Plague Stinger to get that unblockable feel.

This isn't Modern legal... Berserk and Invigorate weren't printed in Modern legal sets. You may, however, play this in Legacy.

That being said, regardless of what format you choose to play this in, you still will want more than 4x creatures. Inkmoth Nexus, Ichorclaw Myr, Blight Mamba, and Rot Wolf are great as playsets of each if you're staying Mono .

Mono-green Infect isn't that common but I guess it could still work. You'll just have to max out on protection spells and hope you can ride your creatures to victory. I suggest cutting Unnatural Predation and Livewire Lash completely; and then maxing out on the more efficient things like Vines of Vastwood and Might of Old Krosa etc. Rancor is also good in main. And definitely play 4 Inkmoth Nexus (I know it's not that budget) and 1-2 Pendelhaven if you have them. I'd play Blight Mamba over Plague Myr myself, the regenerate ability seems more useful than producing mana.

You can play a 1-of Revenge of the Hunted if you feel lucky!

So, 4 G.Elf, 4 I.Myr, 4 B.Mamba (12 creatures), 4 I.Nexus, 1 Pendelhaven, 16 Forest (21 lands), 4 B.Defense, 4 V.Vastwood, 4 M.Krosa, 3 M.Growth, 3 A.Blessing, 3 Rancor, 3 L.Life, 1 Groundswell, 1 B.Immense, 1 R.Hunted (27 spells).
