Fungal Infection Discussion

Cheerful_Zucchini on Mushrooms in the Rain

Okay, so I've decided Pollenbright Druid isn't really a necessity so I'm not going to add it. In fact, my playtesting has brought me to the conclusion that I need less lands, so I'll bump it down to 22. I don't think I'll use Jungle Hollow since the life gain is unnecessary (we have the omnivore), but some kind of special land sounds nice. Maybe I'll playtest with a Haunted Fengraf or two.

Playtesting also helped me decide that Thallid Germinator is kind of unnecessary as well. I really like the idea of Fungal Infection since the deck can't really do any removal until Deathspore Thallid hits the table.

So, for now, +3 Fungal Infection -2 Thallid Germinator -1 Swamp. I don't own any Fungal Infection so I can't playtest atm but I think this looks good.

I was actually just designing a deck much like this a few days ago, although I was looking at GW because I considered Pallid Mycoderm to be superior to Deathspore Thallid (-1/-1 one of their creatures vs. +1/+1 all of mine). White also gives you access to Selesnya Evangel , although Night Soil may be better in many situations.

If you do stay with black, I would consider adding Fungal Infection as a cheap chump blocker removal that also gains you a Saproling, vs. Deathspore which costs you one. I would also consider Tukatongue Thallid as an early two-for-one.

As far as lands, dual lands should help make your mana base more reliable. I’d recommend Jungle Hollow or Golgari Rot Farm . If you’re looking for ETB effects, you could try Khalni Garden , Turntimber Grove , Fertile Thicket , Gingerbread Cabin , Bojuka Bog , Mortuary Mire , and Witch's Cottage .

I love and i hate this game in same time. When you think you done its never 100% true. I swap Fungal Infection with Relic Putrescence and Severed Strands or Deathbloom Thallid with Altar of Dementia

Don't add Heartless Summoning ; you're not playing with crazy expensive demons. I approve of Demon of Catastrophes as a secondary way to kill your own Abyssal Persecutor .

I vote Defile instead of Tragic Slip . Fungal Infection might be worth considering, because it can still stop a few critters in modern.

If you go with more sacrificing Sengir Autocrat and Rite of Belzenlok create lots of tokens that can be sacrificed, but are too mana-intensive for their effect. Maybe Doomed Dissenter , Lazotep Reaver or Orzhov Enforcer ? Bitterblossom is too far out of budget range, but for a consistent stream of sacrificable creatures Dreadhorde Invasion but be worth it.

Hey Boroswins!

Thanks for the feedback! I really like Ritual of Soot as well as Cry of Carnarium. Both cards are always in my sideboard, I just sometimes adapt their quantity according to the meta I see around. I worked on a deck a bit past week, you can see latest changes - more different early removal as well as Ashiok and Narset in the sideboard against grave and card drawing decks. I've found Fungal Infection being surprisingly good against explore dudes and mana dorks, considering playing even more copies of it.

A got to do some modern competetive gameplay with this deck and made some notes:

  1. Contrary to expectations the deck didn't generate very many tokens.
  2. I would have liked to have more removal.
  3. Deck could be faster and more interactive.
  4. Duress doesn't hit a target everytime.
  5. Opponent will sideboard gravehate and also maybbe combo distrubtion.

The changes I made:

Removed: 1x Merrow Bonegnawer , 1x Irresistible Prey , 1x Renegade Tactics , 1x Raven's Crime and 1x Rakdos's Return .

Inserted: 2x Young Pyromancer , 2x Fungal Infection and 1x Dark Salvation .

These changes seem pretty good. I'm looking forward for the next FnM, or similar, event!

I would get rid of Vicious Conquistador , Fungal Infection , and Sovereign's Bite . Maybe you could use some things from your maybe board, but Discovery / Dispersal , Cast Down , and Fight with Fire (for Lyra) have a place here?

Looks good, but would you consider splashing red for Risk Factor , Angrath, the Flame-Chained ? Another Card that you could benefit from is Priest of Forgotten Gods , especially when Fungal Infection is boarded in,... Maybe you want to take a look at my Black Judith and Tell me what you think about it? Good Luck with your Deck!
