You could improve it a lot just by optimizing the cards you have. For example, all your hand disruption cards can be replaced with a combination of Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, or even Collective Brutality. Researching, and finding the best version of each card can go a long way to improving any deck. Unfortunately, better cards tend to be more expensive, but if you can afford it you'll notice the difference.

Also, in an infect deck you typically want fewer creatures, more pump spells. So I'd cut Contagious Nim, and Bontu's Monument in favor of more removal/pump/hand disruption spells.

Finally, as a general deck building rule for beginners: to start a deck out pick 9 cards that you'd like to base the deck around. Run 4 of each, + 24 lands and BAM deck. From there you can shuffle things around a bit (fewer high drops more low drops/more lands or less lands/Varying your removal). This helps trim the fat, creates a consistent deck, and gives you a nice starting point.

Example:

Do your research, test it out, keep what works toss what doesn't. Always glad to see new players. Best of luck!

Remove the Flensermite for 3 more Plague Stinger and another Septic Rats.

Devoted Druid and Kitchen Finks seem like other good starting points. I'd also consider playing some of the infinite combos with Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Viscera Seer.

A lot of the creatures with Wither can also be useful. Boggart Ram-Gang comes to mind.

The same goes for Infect. Glistener Elf, Phyrexian Vatmother, Ichorclaw Myr, Inkmoth Nexus, Phyrexian Crusader, Flensermite, and Phyrexian Hydra are probably the ones on-curve. I'd be wary of Infect, though, because it means you're trying to win via both poison counters and regular damage. You could also fall into the trap of being just a really bad Infect deck. Glistening Oil might offset this to some degree, but it's not very good on its own compared to just jamming in more creatures.

Other things include Crumbling Ashes, Dusk Urchins, Everlasting Torment, Blowfly Infestation, Fume Spitter, Scarscale Ritual, Serrated Arrows, and Woodlurker Mimic.

Infect is just cruel! XD Flensermite, Ichor Rats, Phyresis or even Plague Stinger you don't know how many times I have beat out all my friends cause lack of flying or reach cards in their deck! Slow painful death... Good luck!

The previous posts gave a lot of great imputs.

Most Infect decks are usually mono green for a turn 3-4 kills as mentioned.

You should use 4x Mutagenic Growth That card is bonker for any infect deck.

You pretty much need 4x Plague Stinger as well. infect + flying is always a great thing.

Underworld Connections should probably be traded for Phyrexian Arena

Cut the big infect creatures and play weaker ones to make best uses of Hand of the Praetors

Inkmoth Nexus is the best goddamn land you can use, but the 24$ price tag comes with it.

Some other control spells not mentioned you can use are: Harsh Scrutiny - Grasp of Darkness - Rend Flesh - Murder - Hero's Downfall . You should probably pick a turn 1 spell to help the mana curve.

What you could remove from your deck for something better:

(2-3 lands) - Flensermite - Tragic Slip - Phyrexian Vatmother - Whispering Specter - Paragon of Open Graves - Underworld Connections.

Goodluck!! :)

Forgot that Crypt Ghast isn't legal due to Exploit, so it is being replaced by Flensermite.

I still don't like Necroskitter. I feel like you could get more value from a creature that will contribute to the infect cause. 3cmc creatures that are inexpensive are Ichor Rats, Septic Rats, or Whispering Specter. On the lower end of things there is also Flensermite, Ichorclaw Myr, and Necropede.
