Blighted Agent Discussion

Soul Foundry, Stolen Identity, Supplant Form, Rite of the Raging Storm, maybe Shapesharer.

Deep-Sea Kraken is cheap with suspend then you can get a 6/6 unblockable.

Blighted Agent if you don't mind Infect.

How do you not have The Locust God here already?

Looks like a fun deck. I would be tempted to even go almost creatureless except for clones. Then when you hit them with powerful creatures ITS - ALL - THEIR - FAULT.

hungry000 on Derelor: Making Unplayable Cards Playable

I don't play much legacy either, but I have some general advice I can give:

Legacy has access to the original duals like Volcanic Island, so your mana base should be a mix of those (~2 at most of each for a 3 color deck) and a bunch of fetches. They also have lands that make 2 mana like Ancient Tomb and City of Traitors, which would reduce the need for Desperate and Pyretic Ritual. Instead of Blighted Agent you could just play a single Grindstone for a finisher (infinite combo with Painter's Servant); that would let you play some protection spells like Force of Will and there's a possibility of winning randomly.

For reference, the "blue unblockable guy" mentioned by Gracco is Blighted Agent. I kind of like the concept here of a more Control oriented approach to Infect. After the banning of Git Probe and the printing of Fatal Push, Infect became more reactive instead of the blitzy type of deck it was before. I personally play a BUG version of Infect, I'll link my deck below. I can see by your maybeboard that you're aware of these cards, however I really think they're necessary for Infect. Might of Old Krosa is probably the best aggressive pump spell in Modern, so I would try and find a home for the playset. Mutagenic Growth is free pump, which is also important for when you need to win fast. Noble Hierarch is great if you can afford it, otherwise it isn't that big of a deal. The problem is I don't know what you would cut in order to put these in. I would suggest some of the hand hate and removal spells but those are what make your deck unique so honestly I don't know. But do consider those for the future. I also think the sideboard could use a bit of work, take out some removal for silver bullet cards such as Grafdigger's Cage, Nature's Claim, etc. I also think Shapers' Sanctuary is a fantastic card against any deck with removal. I play 2 in my sideboard. Anyway, I really like this, so +1 from me.

seems like Blighted Agent would be right at home in this deck

hi nice list recommandation would be to splash blue to have acces to Blighted Agent and Distortion Strike and maybe even Brainstorm also where is your 4 Rancor? also 2 Rot Wolf could be usefull Invigorate is a slightly better card then Groundswell

for the sideboard Lotus Petal could be usefull in the mirror or hyper agresive match and Nature's Claim is probably better then Gleeful Sabotage

Hey bellefarniente91,

It is a fun deck, it struggles against some decks which run Solemnity, which is why I added Aura Shards. There is also a Bruse Tarl deck in my pod that can kill you pretty quickly. Since I am a target due to infect, that deck can deal me enough commander damage to end me.

Also, Blightsteel Colossus ended up being too much of a dead card in preliminary with not enough ways to cheat it out without paying the 12 mana cost. It's much better to have smaller, cheaper evasive infectors and a bunch of ways to pump them with counters + proliferate to pump more and to increment posion counters already on the board.

Example: I get Blighted Agent out turn two after a Sol Ring turn one and and Swiftfoot Boots on turn 2 equipped to the blighted agent. Then with a third all color land turn 3 and Hatred, Give // Take or Citadel Siege in hand, I can kill a player by turn 3 or turn 5/6 which is much better than having BlightSteel in hand and having to wait a bunch of turns to even get it onto the board.

I have a few new cards I may add soon. I could convert this deck to G/U, just beef it up as G/B, or even try making it B/U/G (though the lands I own might not support that sufficiently). Another possibility is to make 2 decks.

New Cards:
These numbers represent how many I have of each, not necessarily how many I would use in this deck.
4x Blighted Agent
1x Groundswell
3x Rancor
1x Mutagenic Growth
4x Nature's Way
4x Wildsize
I also have some of the usual blue evasion and counter spells.
Any suggestions?

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on Thousand Cuts: Tetsuko EDH | *PRIMER*

Hi there! First of all, suuuper evil deck you have there. Here are some suggestions that may or may not be good :)

Chasm Skulker - Yes this will instantly be out of Tetsuko range once you draw a card, but you are drawing so many cards that I feel you could build this guy up to be massive quite quickly. Plus when it dies, you get a bunch of unblockables.

Thassa, God of the Sea - Just another way to give something unblockable that is also a win-con herself.

Captain's Claws for more unblockable dudes/dudets!

Plague Myr and Blighted Agent could give you more infect options

Faerie Conclave is another land you can animate

Personally, I would play Disallow over Arcane Denial or Stifle as I feel it is more flexible and I don't like letting my opponents draw cards.

Gigantoplasm - might be a fun way to copy a creature with an awesome ability and still retain the option to be unblockable. Volrath's Shapeshifter or Warkite Marauder could also be fun ways to mess with P/T.
