Blighted Agent Discussion
1 day ago
I'm going to have to suggest with splashing Blue. You get access to Blighted Agent and Distortion Strike . Those two cards are extremely powerful and can make or break a deck. I'm also going to point you in the direction of itachi45 of the High Council of Jin-Gitaxias, His Royal Highness, the King of Infect himself.
I'm also going to link a couple of decks that both me and itachi45 have taken a liking too.
Itachi's deck: Brother, That Looks... Infected
A deck we both helped with: G/U (Simic) Infect

Thanks for the tips, Hatter. Looking at your list, I do see some things I like, namely Hypnotic Siren I have Blighted Agent in because at one time I had some other equipment in here and his infect was sometimes relevant. He should probably be removed for a one drop unblockable though. I like Imprisoned in the Moon too. That's primo removal right there.

Like BodhiQL said, thank you for the shout out; it’s always nice to be helpful to a fellow phyrexian!
I’m not so sure about Bodhi’s suggestion of a mono green list. True, it’s a bit cheaper, but it also lacks a lot of the evasive element from things like Distortion Strike and Blighted Agent . I think it’s best if you add those lands you got, make a sideboard, and just start infecting people! The list won’t be “optimal” (if there is such a thing), but it still has very high potential, and the first-hand experience is invaluable!
And BodhiQL, I have reviewed your application. At this time, we would like to offer the job of Augur of Progress, the position supervising the Gitaxian Research Division, responsible for the study of phyresis and it’s effect on all matter of biological organisms. (You can change it in your setting menu)

I'm looking at where to possibly mainboard Rathi Trapper . Not only can he cheaply remove a blocker, but also stall until Assassin's Trophy or Livewire Lash comes online, and can also lockdown many of the "win" creatures Tron decks run, like Emrakul, the Aeons Torn , as well as providing more answers to other infect decks with Blighted Agent
Yes, Damping Sphere looks good.
Collected Company could be interesting, but at CMC 4 it probably won't see a lot of play. Might be worth testing. I'm not usually short of drawing creatures, so Incubation doesn't get me much, when it could have just been a creature.

LVL_666, DEFINITELY better mana and creature base. Although, in response to your identity crisis comment-literally the EXACT same thing is happening to my atraxa-infect deck. It pulls so much aggro it's absurd. I pull the deck out and before I even play anything I am the target. Unfortunately, I have been leaning towards going back to +1/+1 counters and superfriends/planeswalkers because then at least I got to play haha. Maybe keep in a few cards with infect such as Blightsteel Colossus, Tainted Strike, Phyresis, Corrupted Conscience, Glistening Oil and maybe Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Caress of Phyrexia, Blighted Agent, and/or Phyrexian Swarmlord just for those instant infect kills. I play against a sliver deck and he kills people with poison more than i do. Sadly Atraxa-infect is not competitive enough and is hated way to much to be fun :(. Here's my deck Atraxive Infection, in case there are any cards in there you may be interested including that you haven't; but like I said... I think I am going to go a different direction so I can actually play her and have fun again. Let me know what you think!

9-lives, No offence taken, but I'd like to understand why you don't like my demo deck? It plays to the plan you want, but in a way which is resilient, I'm fairly sure if the deck didn't work captainamerica wouldn't of liked it. I spend a fair amount of time helping other players build decks, I'm frequently in TappedOut's top ten helpers and I've been playing Magic for more than 20 years... I'm not trying to make you play like a spike, but at the same time Modern is a turn four format. What that means is you need to be in a position to win on turn four or five, otherwise you lose. At present midrange decks simply can't compete with the speed of others...
Answer me this, you have seen my Modern deck Power 4 is Ferocious, can you deal with 2x turn 1 Hollow One or a turn 2 lifelink, flying, double strike Soulflayer? This isn't an edge case on turn 3-4 tron (3 lands Urza's Tower being 1) decks can play Karn Liberated or Wurmcoil Engine. Burn decks have already come close to killing you, and control has you locked out in one way or another. Then there is infect a surprisingly cheap deck, and it only need 10 damage to and an opponent, for reference Blighted Agent. You can't have an answer to everything, and decks which try are called toolboxes, which from what I can tell doesn't appeal to you. Still, I'll cover it anyway, toolbox decks use Eldritch Evolution and Collected Company, mostly because Birthing Pod is modern banned...
Molding your deck around your opponent is a poor plan in general and certainly not something to fixate on. I have a borderline ridiculous casual deck The best cost is free which relies on me exiling cards from my hand to do things. Or how about a deck that is mostly 0 cost artifacts Cheap & Cherio, this only has 15 land, yet it can win. Modern is a format with over 12,000 unique cards and I have no idea how many ways to win, you can't plan for everything.
as an experiment, don't look at values, give me an honest evaluation of these 5 cards:
Vampire Nighthawk aggressive creature, kill spell.
Dissipate counterspell, exile answer.
Bow of Nylea toolbox, passive gain.
Guttersnipe burn with a body.
Ghostway blink, re-trigger enters the battlefield.

nb666 against infect the only problematic card for Martyr is Blighted Agent, because the Glistener Elfs and Inkmoth Nexuses can just be blocked by infinite Squadron Hawks. As for dealing with the Agents, your playset of Path to Exiles and numerous Wrath of God effects can usually get the job done. However, what I believe to be the main reason for the favorable matchup against infect is the one Kami of False Hope, which can not only be found reliably via a Ranger of Eos, but also brought back every turn with Proclamation of Rebirth or Sun Titan. I hope this clarifies things. Thanks for commmenting! :)

@multimedia: Alright; temporarily updated the description for this deck, but I have several things to note:
I'm trying to find an Intuition combo w either Phage the Untouchable & 2 other cards, or Vector Asp/Blighted Agent + Phyrexian Dreadnought & one other card. What would you suggest for either? This is actually for a quick wincon, but Myriad effects (Banshee of the Dread Choir for instance.) are considered "Useless" even though I initially thought The Legend Rule allowed multiple Perms of the same name (Creatures & others.), & Planeswalkers with the same Types. What changed as of Pre-Ravnica Allegence?
Don't fret. I'll update the descriptions later. I just have to finish an Okaun, Eye of Chaos + Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom Chaos Deck, & update a Melek, Izzet Paragon Storm/Instant & Sorcery Copy Deck. I'll update the descriptions from there; given Ravnica Allegiance has Superfriends Support, Creatureless or not.
