Master_of_Metal on BUDGET >5$ INFECT TURN 3 WIN

2 weeks ago

If you have more money, and would like a better, blue splashed path replace Cystbearer with Blighted Agent and swap Viridian Betrayers with either Vines of Vastwood or Might of Old Krosa. Also side note, in order for it to be about 5-6$ be sure to optimize your cart on TCGplayer.

Consider replacing red with blue, and replace most of the creatures with either Blighted Agent, Glistener Elf, and Ichorclaw Myr. You usually want to win as quickly as possible, so most of the enchantments can be deleted for things like Apostle's Blessing and Dispel to protect your dudes and Vines of Vastwood and Groundswell to give bursts of power. Distortion Strike is really good for getting through early blockers long enough to kill your opponent (since one should be enough to kill them within 2 turns). If you want more inspiration, you can look at the budget infect deck on my profile. Keep in mind it is made for modern as well as the fact that I don't know much about pauper.

albino_ninja, I like the Elusive Krasis, however as far as Tower Defense goes my reason for using it in the deck is for finishing the game fast after playing Assault Formation. Also it's fairly amusing when I use it with the seemingly random Blighted Agent to suddenly win.

Force_of_Willb - Thanks for all the suggestions! All of those combat creatures Are great, but the way I built the deck is to either deal combat damage with Rafiq or Blighted Agent so I can kill opponents as quick as possible. If I have to attack with other creatures, its purely because those 2 are unavailable to me at the time. I love Stonehewer Giant and I've done builds where he's in and where he isn't. the 5cmc is what keeps me away, but his ability to search for any equipment and put them on the battlefield is amazing and I might just have to find a spot for him again. And I haven't ever considered Brass Squire, I'll have to play around with it and see if it works with my build. Thanks again!!

epajula - Yeah, Mirri just doesn't seem to work unless she's the commander or the star of combat at least. I love your deck build, you definitely went more offense than I did. Balls to the wall!! I love Grip of Phyresis, but most of my friends prefer auras to equipment, so it would be a dead card most games for me. :(

Hello, welcome to EDH!


Firstly, 27 lands is not enough, especially in a three color deck. I would aim for 35-37 in this deck since you have 6 mana rocks.

If you are up for ordering cards, Command Tower should go in any commander deck with more than one color.

Evolving Wilds is exactly Terramorphic Expanse, but having both doesn't hurt for consistency.

Recently rotated from standard lands that are pretty cheap right now: Sunken Hollow, Hissing Quagmire, Lumbering Falls

Pain lands are pretty cheap too: Yavimaya Coast, Underground River, Llanowar Wastes

Counterspell is strictly better than Cancel.

You are going to want Swiftfoot Boots to protect your commander and give it haste.

There are 2 different ways you can go about building the deck.

  1. You can go for easy wins with Blighted Agent and Jodah's Avenger.

  2. Or you can go for more fun stuff like Mycoloth, Sage of Hours, Master Biomancer, and Cold-Eyed Selkie.

Either way is valid and enjoyable, it just depends on who you play with and how you like to play.

For either one though, you need more big creatures for Mimeoplasm's second targer for counters. Some good cheap options are Krosan Cloudscraper and Ghoultree. Inkwell Leviathan and Gaea's Revenge can be used as targets for the first or second ability.

Terastodon can be used as removal and then as counters later in the Mime.


Firstly, Gifts Ungiven is banned in commander. If you are playing casually it shouldn't be too big a deal, but I thought I'd let you know.

Artisan's Sorrow or Relic Crush. 3/4 Enchantment/Artifact Removal is a little overkill.

Metallic Rebuke is not very good here because the only non-creature artifacts you have produce mana, so you can't really use the improvise that often.

I don't know if you are going for a recursion theme, but generally in this deck you want your creatures to stay in the graveyard, so Wander in Death, Fortuitous Find, and March of the Drowned don't seem very good in this deck. A little bit of recursion is good in any deck, but this is too much.

Canopy Cover is better than the equipment, but it still does have the same pitfall. 2 mana is often going to be too much to pay for something that doesn't offer any power boosts to one of your creatures. Apostle's Blessing can typically accomplish the same goal (and sometimes more) for half the mana. If you really feel evasion is key to victory in your meta, Blighted Agent and Distortion Strike will probably prove more useful.
