If you are going for the infect kill in commander then youll need all the infect and proliferate cards you can get. Here are some pretty good ones-

I think without a really strong target like Invisible Stalker or maybe a trick like Cinder Elemental, Tainted Strike will be worse than just playing a strong infect creature to begin with. If you run more Plague Stinger, Ichorclaw Myr, Flesh-Eater Imp, Hand of the Praetors, and swap Contagious Nim for Phyrexian Crusader or Razor Swine, you'll be more resistant to removal and won't have to spend cards just to gain infect. You can use that mana instead on cheap pump spells like Titan's Strength and Vampire's Bite. If you do stick with the Strike, I'd probably go all in on creatures that benefit from it. Vexing Devil, Goblin Guide, and Monastery Swiftspear would be the usual suspects, but I have always wanted to test out Immolating Souleater myself. Grafted Exoskeleton could probably be replaced by or supplemented with Phyresis to speed things up, and I'd also look at Rogue's Passage for Whispersilk Cloak redundancy if flying isn't strong enough evasion.

Yes thats not much of a revision. But even though most of these seem weak, i can make great use of them.
Blighted Agent - infect and unblockable, great early game, sac-able later to the beast
Core Prowler - decent cmc, has infect, and when it dies i proliferate. Its mostly here just to die. And when the clock is 10 instead of 40...its very scary to be at 9 and this thing being on the board, or 8 with Atraxa on board, or 7 with a beast on board
Hand of the Praetors - probably one of my weaker infect cards as a body. But one of my strongest as utility. Infect anthem and when i cast a spell with infect someone is getting closer to death (great synergy with all the infect cards that are just "thrown in here")
Ichor Rats - ETB and everyone gets a poison counter, all thats left is to proliferate them
Phyrexian Crusader - 2/2 with infect, first strike and pro green/white? For 3 cmc...stupid
Phyrexian Swarmlord - 2nd most expensive cmc infect card in the deck at 6 cmc, but makes me an army of chumps with infect that i can either swing with or sac to the beast for more tokens later should the swarmlord live. Yes its the slowest infect card but its also value and a hatebear that draws attention away from other things
Plaguemaw Beast - fantastic card in this deck. Sac a dude, tap and proliferate? Value
Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon - because Skittles
Viral Drake - has infect, evasion, and i dump mana into it as many times as i can to kill someone
Viridian Corrupter - ETB spot removal: primary use. The bonus is the infect so not really here for its power as an attacker but can be sac'd later for a proliferate
Blightsteel Colossus - easy to tutor for, never hits grave, big and scary. Because Blightsteel
This is only the creatures. I have a varitey of means to give infect to any creature i wish to have it and ways to protect and recur my little army of vileness that its like having multiple copies of them all in th deck.
As i continue to playtest revisions will be made to further enchance the idea, but as of right now this deck isnt optimized for any one thing. Just an infect goodstuff deck thats great for anyone to just pick up and play

Nice deck Shadumahl
A few ideas...
Hex Parasite is a great way to eat counters also...
These are just ideas to get the engine pumping faster... so you're not waiting for turn 4 or 5, giving them a chance to establish a board.

I agree with a majority of the cuts. Gitrog was mainly in there because he is a draw engine, but I do agree that he may end up being a dead draw most of the time. I also feel as though Creakwood Liege could be swapped out for an infect creature.
Speaking of infect, here are some of the infect creatures I found that are cheap CMC-wise:
Also some others that may also be good, but I'll consider for now:
Any thoughts on the two I'm considering for now? I know the others are rather good in this deck. :) I'll also consider some more staxy cards such as Smokestack for later on, any suggestions on some more stax-like effects, perhaps?
