Gristleback/Brindle Boar/Kitchen Finks/Feed the Clan/Momentous Fall for that bonus life through earlygame? Nylea's Disciple/Obstinate Baloth. Infect is tricky, but Dismember is usually practical, and Ratchet Bomb works well set to one or two, and murders tokens. Elixir of Immortality/Sun Droplet is a thing. Pulse of Murasa could help facing mixed discard/aggro. Asceticism makes people hate you.

Just keep in mind you're talking about a turn 4 win while goldfishing. Real games often play out differently.

You'll face plenty of decks that can interact either through removal like Lightning Bolt and Dismember or by blocking/trading with Tarmogoyf, Kitchen Finks, Wild Nacatl, and this is where a card like the constrictor helps. Putting another 3/3 on the field is a lot weaker when they have a 4/5 to block.

I play Infect in Modern, and I have to say this is a very different idea than most Infect decks go by. I'm not saying it's unworkable but I will say that it loses to a lot, and I mean a LOT of decks in the format simply because you don't cast any spells until turn 3, and even then dropping 1 creature from 3 turns behind isn't enough to save the game. In order for this to work, you need to be able to interact with what your opponent is doing and survive long enough to get your combo out. I suggest:

-Hand disruption (4x Thoughtseize, 4x Inquisition of Kozilek mainboard)-Removal (Abrupt Decay, Maelstrom Pulse, Fatal Push, Dismember.) Stab Wound is too costly and doesn't even kill many creatures, also it doesn't put -1/-1 counters on the creature so you can't steal anything with it, Murder and Hero's Downfall are costly, and usually not very needed in the format. If you want to sideboard Hero's Downfall against planeswalker decks that might be a better option, but in that case I'd just use Vampire Hexmage instead.-Reduce your mana curve significantly, you want 1 and 2-drop creatures!-Take out Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Kulrath Knight, just too costly and don't do much for your strategy.-Crumbling Ashes only kills off the creatures you want to steal! Better to use a removal spell to kill something that you can't steal, and leave the creatures with -1/-1 counters alive if possible.-Gift of Orzhova is kind of a dead card here I think, you have better 3-drops for gaining life that also put a body on the field, like Vampire Nighthawk who does a ton of work.-I'd also say to group your cards by type, not what they do... It makes it so much easier to see what needs tweaking if all the creatures, all the lands, etc. are where they're supposed to be.

Good luck!

Fatal push is sweet, but you seem pretty lite on revolt triggers. You may want to consider running Dismember or Victim of Night.

Why Bitterblossom over Shrieking Affliction? Seems counterintuitive to the deck's goal. Dismember instead of Slaughter Pact
