Glistener Elf Discussion
3 days ago
The key thing to know is that damage and life loss are two different things. Losing life is the most common result of taking damage, but it's also possible to lose life without taking any damage (Phyrexian Arena, Bump in the Night, etc.) and there are even some situations where damage doesn't actually cause life loss (the Infect ability on Glistener Elf and friends is the best example).

Glistener Elf is on theme and could act as an extra wincon. I really like Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip as well since she ramps so much. I was surprised not to see a Chameleon Colossus among the ranks as well, pro black pumps itself seems like it would fit nicely.

I like to stay firmly in the realm of reality instead of venturing into dreamland scenarios.
Infect theoretically can kill on turn two....
With (turn 1) Misty Rainforest + Glistener Elf + (turn 2) Misty Rainforest + Mutagenic Growth + Mutagenic Growth + Become Immense.
Which is a 6 card combo, that requires drawing multiples of one of its cards (Mutagenic Growth)
The odds are abysmal.
(If Blazing Shoal would be legal, your statement would make sense.)
By the same virtue forest belcher is the best modern deck since it has better chance for turn 2 win than infect. Only it is not the best deck in the format.
Of course building a deck with rituals and 8 mana cards and then hope to win is foolish, even if the builder sprinkles in some random chump blockers.
The problem with this deck is not the idea that its creator wants to play dragons in modern, the problem it that its a complete mess.
Without a game plan, without anything to do early game.

Consider replacing red with blue, and replace most of the creatures with either Blighted Agent, Glistener Elf, and Ichorclaw Myr. You usually want to win as quickly as possible, so most of the enchantments can be deleted for things like Apostle's Blessing and Dispel to protect your dudes and Vines of Vastwood and Groundswell to give bursts of power. Distortion Strike is really good for getting through early blockers long enough to kill your opponent (since one should be enough to kill them within 2 turns). If you want more inspiration, you can look at the budget infect deck on my profile. Keep in mind it is made for modern as well as the fact that I don't know much about pauper.

ok, but if i put Vines of Vastwood in I am not taking out Seal of Strength because apart from Glistener Elf it is my best turn 1 play as you can use its ability whenever. Also Gitaxian Probe is not banned so i might put it in. Thanks

I run a mono green infect deck that can consistently get turn 2-4 win, so i can help you with the green side of your deck. One thing to know is that in an infect deck you want maximun consistency so you should have all the cards in your deck to be in it 4 times.
