Cry of Contrition Discussion

I love what you are doing here. here is what i am thinking after looking at it for 5 min. +4 Ichorclaw Myr -4 Phyrexian Vatmother -2 Raven's Crime -4 Mazemind Tome +2 Shadowspear +2 Infiltration Lens +2 Demonic Embrace. anyway dont take me too seriously. I just started brewing a mono green infect but im not feeling it. I have a red deck and a black vampire deck. really happy with those. ill post a link. for this deck i was thinking you have too much discard in the mainboard. that is why id say take out raven's crime. if you want the option of discarding lands late game, even though infect has no late game lol, then i like Demonic Embrace because it can finish an opponent. Raven's crime is useless to recast if they have no cards. I see dragon's claw in the sideboard. I generally advise against that unless you are also red. personally, I have duress in the sideboard for my black deck. I use Cry of Contrition in the main deck. mostly for budget purposes but I find that it is an excellent card to play on turn three or four. if it plays right, they could discard two powerful cards. against burn, for example, it does not matter which cards they discard.

Considering the Haunt mechanic requires you to exile your creature or spell upon entering the graveyard, you may want to remove all of those. That accounts for at least 19 creatures from your list which would bring you down to 116 cards. You can also replace the Orzhov Guildgate for a Bojuka Bog to hit an opponent's entire graveyard. Since you also wanted to steer away from the Extort mechanic, you can remove those as well, along with noncreature spells with Haunt like Benediction of Moons , Cry of Contrition , and Seize the Soul . Theses suggestions might help to trim the deck down.

Yo breh, I looked through what you have and here are some suggestions
Cards to switch out
It's pretty rare that you'll be hit with a target player effect at our table, so this won't see much use. Good for a sideboard though in case you're up against a burn or mill deck.
Dawn Charm is enough for a deck with as much protection from attacking as this deck, so you can drop Riot Control. Epicure of Blood is the second half of your instantly kill everyone in the game combo.
Cry of Contrition doesn't do much since it doesn't target a specific card. Karlov is just one mana cheaper, and with as much life gain as you will be getting, it's basically an endless source of exile effects and can double as a super strong attacker or blocker because it'll be gaining 6+ counters per round at a 3 person table.
Mill won't be a win condition for this deck, and by the time you deal enough damage to effectively mill someone, you probably will have already killed them. Also you could use some more mana rocks in this deck in general.
More reliable than Angelic Accord and can generate as many angels as you can pay for.
Obzedat does what 90% of your deck does, only he comes with the drawback of not being able to block if you actually use his ability. Teysa shuts down creature swamp completely and gives you tokens to block with.
Land of your choice for Reliquary Tower
These don't seem great at first but it lets you get the lands that you want, while simultaneously reducing your land base and deck size after playing them which raises the probability of drawing the cards you want.
Approach of the Second Sun (because it's an aesthetic win con)
Overwhelming Splendor if you want to be a real cunt
The reason this isn't listed as a necessity is because I'm pretty sure you already are adding it. Seriously tho add it
This straight up just prevents people from playing anything with toughness 2 or less and puts a gap of 4 between the power/toughness of your creatures and theirs, making all of your creatures viable attackers and blockers. Seriously this wins games

Budget sideboard reccomendations- 1 duress, four Despise, four Cry of Contrition, three Wrench Mind and three Languish/Mutilate. Just update your hate to match your opponent. In burn metas, you might want Golden Urn or w/e.
Looking to even out your manabase without breaking the bank? Grixis Panorama is almost playable, and there are various taplands with upsides.

Here are some ideas for the defensive options you mentioned:
For this type of deck, Exsanguinate can be another good aggressive card / finisher.
There are a couple cards that I would consider removing:
