Cards you should consider are Blowfly Infestation, Carnifex Demon, Channeler Initiate, Deity of Scars, Black Sun's Zenith, Grim Poppet, Wickerbough Elder, Quillspike, and Devoted Druid.

Important to note that Devoted Druid + Quillspike is an infinite combo.

This is nice, but you should probably edit the title - as it's no longer $20. Blowfly Infestation's price went up by a lot and I think that's what made the price rise of the deck rise so much.

chezwaldo on Blowfly Infestation + Nest of ...

Can Nest of Scarabs + Blowfly Infestation be an infinite combo? If i put a -1/-1 counter on a 1/1 creature I'm triggering Nest of Scarabs to put a scarab token on the battlefield and the 1/1 should die from the counter so Blowfly Infestation triggers to put another -1/-1 on another creature. So can i stack it so Nest of Scarabs triggers then trigger Blowfly Infestation to put a -1/-1 on the scarab token and loop it again? I'm wondering if i need to chose targets for Blowfly Infestation first to put it on the stack or not.

If it is an infinite combo then The Scorpion God has infinite card draw combo as well.

Blowfly Infestation, Fevered Convulsions, Flourishing Defenses, Phyresis, Blightsteel Colossus. Also, Melira, Sylvok Outcast prevents your own creatures from being infected. Finally, Golgari Signet, Sol Ring, Commander's Sphere, and Birthing Pod are all staples to include.

Looks amusing but if recommend a few Blowfly Infestation. Having two nest of scarabs cards with a blowfly out means infinite tokens. With two blowflys out and one nest of scarabs means infinite counters.

I realize that Screams from Within doesn't produce a -1/-1 counter. The reason I suggested it to you is that it has the ability to make your other spells that create -1/-1 counters work much more efficiently because of it's 'return to the battlefield on enchanted creature dying' ability. In your deck, I think the two effects, that is, the abundance of -1/-1 effects and Screams from Within's persistent, reusable -1/-1 effect, would complement each other really well.

Perhaps you have considered the card in depth, but in the case where you haven't, I've tried to describe some examples below of how the card could help your deck be better, because I want to help you understand what I mean.

With Screams from Within in your hand and Vhati il-Dal on the battlefield, most creatures your opponents can cast are able to be killed disturbingly easily.

You would use Vhati's ability to give an opponent's creature a toughness of one, the cast Screams on it to send it to the graveyard, after which Screams would return to the battlefield to enchant another creature of your choice. Next turn, Vhati would give the newly enchanted creature a toughness of one, and then Screams would do the send-creature-to-graveyard, return-itself-to-battlefield dance again, ready to destroy another creature next turn.

Another example. Screams from Within gives spells like Skinrender additional killing power once Screams from Within has been returned from the battlefield more that three times after killing a creature, in such a way it's like your getting a mana discount on your destroy creature spells and abilities.

As an example, imagine you have already had Screams from Within return to the battlefield after killing three of your opponent's creatures (perhaps they are playing a weenie deck, and you played an early, low powered Black Sun's Zenith while having Screams from Within on the battlefield to get multiple creature kills). Screams from Within currently enchants a 4/4. Next turn you plan to play Skinrender.

Skinrender, as you know, allows you to put three -1/-1 counters on the creature of your choice when it comes onto the battlefield. So you could put those counters on the opponent's 3/3 creature (the former 4/4), and use Screams from Within to finish the job and send it to the graveyard.

In the above scenario, if Blowfly Infestation was on the battlefield when Black Sun's Zenith was played, that would be at least three -1/-1 counters from your opponent's flyblown dead critters and an extra -1/-1 from the dead 4/4 creature killed by Skinrender.

Blowfly Infestation with Crumbling Ashes is nice.

Proliferate cards like Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Grim Affliction,etc. can also help ensure the spread of your counters.

Quillspike is nice for removing the counters that end up on your own creatures and also forms an infinite combo with Devoted Druid which is already in the deck.

Also since she specifically make's snake tokens, Seshiro the Anointed might be ok but i'm not as sure about that one
