mal099 on Weird U/W Pauper Combo

Looking at the decks, I feel like the combo you do where you can tap a creature to do one damage does not work very well with infect. Still takes 10 rounds to win, and any lonely 2/1 unblockable creature can do the same, and cheaper, if we ignore the possibility of lifegain. It's nice to be able to put -1/-1 counters on creatures I suppose, but that means you take even longer to win. I'd probably just forget about that combo and just go for speed.

I feel like white is not really doing much for you - there's some creature removal, which other colors, including blue, can do as well, and there's some more creatures with infect, which again, other colors have too. But white is bad at making creatures stronger, a weakness it shares with blue. Comparing the other colors:

Red: Bad with infect, Ogre Menial really is too expensive, Razor Swine seems decent. But very good at doing damage! Start with a mere 1/1 with infect, pump it up with Fists of the Anvil (or Blood Lust / Blood Frenzy , then double the damage with Assault Strobe , Double Cleave or Temur Battle Rage , and BAM! 10 damage with infect, all you need is some enchantment to make it unblockable, which blue can easily provide. Also provides creature removal through direct damage.

Green: Lots of ways to make your creatures stronger too. No Double Strike, but more creatures with infect. Very little creature removal.

Black: Also quite a few good creatures with infect, also good at making creatures stronger. Lots of good creature removal. Can make the opponent discard cards, so it's good at control.

Gattison, the thing hanging from Glory Seeker is the scabbard of his sword, not his actual "sword."

I also forgot about Rakdos Keyrune, which again ahs suggestive flavor text, and there is also Fists of the Anvil which is entirely self-explanatory.

Brute Force +2 // Uncanny Speed -2 // Fists of the Anvil -1 // Temur Battle Rage -2 // Undying Evil +2 // Soul's Fire -2 // Spell Pierce +3 //Cryptborn Horror -2 // Goblin Electromancer +2 // Jeskai Sage -2 // Vampire Hexmage +2 //Fate Foretold -2 // Skin Invasion -2 // Cathartic Reunion +2 //

Quite the rebuild but, you have so many different cards at different mana-speed-levels that the deck won't perform very consistent

Muddle the Mixture will double as a tutor for your Isochron Scepter or Cyclonic Rift giving you more flexibility. Invigorated Rampage is a better Fists of the Anvil. Tolaria West with a Mana Crypt is a land that also ramps. (Also works with your Fabricate) Whir of Invention does the same with Mana Crypt but also searches Isochron Scepter helping with the soft lock if you can get a Counterspell effect under it. Sensei's Divining Top can be really strong with enough shuffle effects. Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares are really low on the curve and don't hurt your game plan.

Best of luck and have fun!!!

I see a couple things that might help you with this deck.First, I see you using Wild Defiance, and Silverfur Partisan. Both of these are good cards, but you do not have much in the way of proc'ing their abilities. Mostly just Fall of the Hammer, and Rush of Adrenaline. However, you did touch on a solid card that combos well with them in Soul's Fire. Other cards that come to mind are Blades of Velis Vel, Blossoming Defense, Brute Force, Colossal Might, Expedite,Fists of the Anvil, Prey's Vengeance, Rise to the Challenge, and Titanic Growth.

The second thing is expensive. So if you want to keep a budget, this card might not be for you. But AEther Vial loves werewolves as you can then put them into play without casting, allowing you to flip your wolves. This card is much better with Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip, as you generate a lotof value out of constantly flipping him. You get much less value out of constantly flipping other wolves, but I still think it might at least be worth a consideration.

Oh, and Lightning Bolt. Very few red decks are complete without Lightning Bolt.
