enpc on EDH infect

Flesh / Blood is a dumb finisher. Eat a creature from a graveyard, buffing one of your infect creatures. Then deal direct damage with the creature. Because Blood specifies that the damage source is the the creature, not the spell, the infect carries through. Soul's Fire is the same thign at instant speed.

Maybe add a couple Swan Song in the side.
Scarscale Ritual in the side could possibly help with draw.
Flesh / Blood could be an alternate wincon in the side

Hey, WAYF4! Thanks for your comment. Flesh / Blood was already in my maybeboard and I used to play it in an earlier version of this deck. In my local meta the sorcery speed was a huge drawback, though. In the end I replaced it with Chandra's Ignition which has single-handedly won me several games out of nowhere by taking out the whole table at once.
My Kresh EDH is my Timmy deck. I really want it to be playing big, flashy creatures. It doesn't need to win every game, but if it's winning then it does so by totally crushing my opponents. :-)
With that said, I am actually thinking about taking out one or two of Kreshs big friends and replacing it with a mana doubler like Mana Reflection. From the 3 big guys you mentioned Bloodshot Cyclops seems like the most possible cut to me because I still have Chandra's Ignition, Soul's Fire and Fling that do the same. The others fulfill important roles as removal spells. I don't know if the sac-removal creatures you mentioned really fit into this deck because I don't play tokens and all of them make me sacrifice one of my own creatures, too.

This seems like a super fun deck to play, honestly. But I can definitely see where some of the creatures are too expensive. You might want to trade some of the big-impact 7/8 mana creatures like Terastodon, Woodfall Primus, Bloodshot Cyclops and Bloodfire Colossus for less-impactful but more immediately-available cards. Like the trifecta of sac-removal creatures: Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner and Slum Reaper.(Highly approve of Flesh / Blood, incidentally. Include it if you can, it's won me multiple games.)

Flesh / Blood is in playable colors, gets around blockers, works with the commander, and can get you double value out of your buffs.
