Blossoming Defense Discussion
16 hours ago
@CHVCK840 Thanks a lot for your suggestions! The only reason I leaned towards black was because I had it in the draft and the disruption spells seemed to really help delay until the win con. I have been thinking about coming up with a mono green ramp brew maybe as it seems to fit the goal of the deck better and it gives us Blossoming Defense

A dream sequence of play:
Turn 3: Hashep Oasis - tap 2 Forest for Elvish Clancaller then tap Hashep Oasis and Llanowar Elves for Song of Freyalise- tap Marwyn, the Nurturer for 3 and cast Steel Leaf Champion (keeping 1 mana in reserve for a Blossoming Defense)
Turn 5: Tap 2 Forest for Elvish Clancaller, tap Marwyn, the Nurturer for 7 mana, sac 2 Hashep Oasis to boost the 2 Steel Leaf Champion and swing with 2 Steel Leaf Champion (10/9 vigilance, trample and indestructible), play Blossoming Defense on Llanowar Elves (5/5 hexproof, vigilance, trample and indestructible) and Elvish Clancaller (2/2 vigilance, trample and indestructible)
As we get deeper into the game other dream sequences could be more dramatic, specially if you can protect a swarm attack with Heroic Intervention

I spent a ton of time trying to break Silverfur Partisan + Zada, Hedron Grinder when they were in Standard, and it just was never quite there. So it's awesome to see Zada and Mirrorwing tearing it up in Modern!
I personally like Blossoming Defense over Vines of Vastwood in this deck. Vines is better in Infect, because the extra two points of damage can make all the difference in the world. Maybe in the side though, for matchups when the team needs a little more protection? It also has the really fun edge cases where you can cast it on an opponent's creature so they can't pump/Equip/etc their team :-)
I found myself wanting something for boardwipes, and also something besides Mirrorwing for Flyers ... maybe some Heroic Intervention and Vines of the Recluse (or maybe Arbor Armament) in the sideboard?

ksuKaliber I will definitely use that Blossoming Defense, but I'll probably replace it with Giant Growth because the cards you suggested would lower my chance of giving trample to my creatures by quite a lot. Thanks for the suggetion.

I would cut a couple Forests because 22 seems pretty high for a highly aggressive deck like Infect in Modern, as well as make some other cuts (such as possibly Llanowar Augur or Larger Than Life for some protection spells such as Blossoming Defense, Apostle's Blessing, and Vines of Vastwood. Protection is a big thing in Infect because your wincon is very fragile to a removal spell like Path to Exile and Fatal Push, so you need ways to make it more difficult to lose due to a 1 mana card that killed your creature you just put all your pump spells on.

Thank you very much magicsheep for your suggestions and feedback. I can clearly see why you made all your comments and suggestions, and your feedback really has really got me thinking about how to protect the machine I'm building. Your suggested sideboard is definitely a great place to start, and I'll figure out how to put in some Blossoming Defense. Thanks again! –AL

Lerijie - I agree, I think Blossoming Defense or Heroic Intervention might be effective replacements for Shalai, Voice of Plenty. I'll playtest your deck, but I need a 15 card sideboard so I'll tinker with that. Be warned, though: I will probably be playing against more midrange/control decks than aggro (red deck wins), so if your meta is more aggressive please make sure to let me know.
