Blighted Agent Discussion

hkhssweiss on Phyrexian Growth

Okay so I ran a couple playtests, there was a couple cards I did not like when I drew them here were some of the cards that didn't synergize with the deck.

Stubborn Denial, Phyrexian Reclamation, and oddly enough Mystical Tutor. I was quite happy to see Enlightened Tutor more often than Mystical as it can either grab me Contagion Engine or Inexorable Tide. What I feel is lacking is the early game, As Foretold can get bonkers with Atraxa but it takes awhile to tick up there.

You are right on being creature light, we can probably bump it higher using mana dorks. Most of the time I was playtesting there wasn't much of interaction, I probably say you can cut actually all the counterspells except for Fuel the Cause as it helps with the proliferation. I agree you should run JTMS as it is pure value and we do need the CA.

Also add in Blighted Agent, that is quite a terror. What are your thoughts on the evaluation so far?

Want to be more annoying with your unblockable play? Consider Blighted Agent.

The problem I have with using Infect creatures, is that it really limits your options for what creatures you can use, since they all need to be infect.

Sure, you could GPG a Blighted Agent to make it a 4/4 unblockable. That would be sweet, but not really much more effective than a Giant Growth.

Another thought: Noble Hierarch could make a good target for GPG. Not really degenerate, but better than most.

Inkmoth Nexus if you aren't on a budget.

One of Infect's main advantages is that its creatures are already really hard to block. Inkmoth Nexus has flying, Blighted Agent is already unblockable, Phyrexian Crusader has relevant protections, and Plague Stinger has flying. Basically your creatures except Glistener Elf are probably not getting blocked, so I'm not sure if Umezawa actually does that much for you.

I had a great idea when looking at Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugative INFECT! I want to run all the 1 power or less infect creatures in Blue and Green....maybe black?, in a deck and see if it works well.

Any ideas of how it should go? I pulled some ideas off of other G, U, B infect decks, but they are not quite what I want since I might skip all the white and black phyrexian spells completely.

So far I got Pendelhaven Groundswell Glistener Elf Blighted Agent Might of Old Krosa Mutagenic Growth and if I do black...maybe a Whispering Specter ?

This deck is great, my build has like 70% of the cards your does. All that’s different is i’m missing the SICK doubling enchantments and i’m running low-power Infect creatures like Blighted Agent and Glistener Elf for those spicy rage-quits from unexpecting opponents.

Thanks for all the suggestions capshanks01

Edric, Spymaster of Trest has it's own deck and I don't have enough unblockable / evasion Maybe  Bident of Thassa because it  won't help my opponents.

Cutting cards like Avenger of Zendikar Myr Battlesphere Hornet Queen seems like a bad idea because they give me many experience counters and/or blockers. But worst for me seems to get less experience counters.

Cobra Trap is 1 mana most of the games

Deadeye Navigator can abuse most of my ETB's like the high cmc token makers.  Getting four Myr Tokens for just 1{U} seems pretty solid.  Or two cards with Mulldrifter

Fertilid was cut in my last deck change. Too slow,  too much mana. Getting two lands for 7 or 1 for 5 mana is just not good. Even if it's a creature. And if I have nothing to do with ezuri than putting counters on fertilid something went wrong.

Fauna Shaman discarding doesn't seem that good without recursion. And getting a creature is good  Protean Hulk or  Sage of Hours but revealing is a huge downside in my opinion.

Fungal Sprouting looks good, but I don't think 4mana for most times 1-3 Saproling is that great.  Also it is sorcery speed, that can be very slow.  And not sure when to cast.  First mainphase I will get less counters because ezuri hasn't put counters on something yet. Second mainphase I will get more saprolings because Ezuri could put something before this card.  But the amount he puts on a creature is lower. (I have this Problem with many cards in this deck to be honest)

Wirewood Symbiote I don't run that many elves...maybe okay to run.

Spike Feeder doesn't seem useful. Getting life instead of smacking faces/killing People

There is nearly no targeted removal, you are right.  I just need a day of and rebuilt this deck completly :( But takes time:D

Acidic Slime

Trygon Predator

Scavenging Ooze

That's all. I see the Problem, but bounce isn't the answer.

Broodhatch Nantuko I wanted a second morph,  so my playgroup always knows what's under the morph. And even getting only 2+ tokens out seems okay.

Glimmer of Genius is Instant speed, seeing up to 4 cards isn't bad. And if you don't scry away, the cards you get are good. And I may play an  Aether Hub so it may be more useful.  What draw spells would you play rather?

Fact or Fiction Instant speed, worst case getting only one card I really need, with the option to get  up to 5 cards. (Since politcs is a thing in my group there is a high chance of getting 4 or even 5 cards). Same for here,  what would you play rather? Needs to be instant!

Lightning Greaves yep had this Problem, thought of Neurok Stealthsuit because for {U}{U} it's Instant and I can remove it, by putting it on anything Else

Panharmonicon won't be in here.  It's an really great card,  but not in this deck.

Now to the more positive part :D

Sakura-Tribe Scout seems good, especially if I build more draw into this deck.

Snake Basket never heard of this card before.  Seems pretty solid  in my opinion!

Spellskite oh hell yes I need this card.

Glen Elendra Archmage if I get one, I totally play this wonderful piece of cardboard.

Inkmoth Nexus would be solid, but Infect isn't really my strategy. Blighted Agent has the unblockable thing, that's why he is in. If I ever trade an Inkmoth, he will have a place in this deck.

Shrieking Drake at first I thought this card is weak.  Than I realized that he can bounce himself  (I assume that's what you wanted to say) :D getting experience for just {U} seems broken. I need this immediatly! And if bounce one of my high cmc token dudes to replay them? Even better.

All in all I need to build this deck from zero, and I need to be sure what tactic I'm playing. I need to get cards that I don't have right now. That takes time/money. And then I need time to brew. You can always suggest more, I try to answer fast. But it while take a while to get everything, but I'll Update as soon as I can!

Thanks a Lot for all this help

The Mimeoplasm is so flexible it’s insane! You want to go full reanimator for sure; most common thing you can see is copying an infect creature for it’s abilities (e.g. Blighted Agent) and 10+ body creature so you can take out one person in a single turn. You can also go with some kind of ETB shenanigans or combo build with Flash + Protean Hulk and razaketh, the foulblooded that allows you to abuse his ability and reanimate your fellows for extra shenanigans.
