KumaLKS on turn 2 win infect

4 days ago

I'm confused. Turn one, Forest Glistener Elf right? 'Cuz then turn two Swell of Growth makes the Glistener Elf a 3/3 then Assault Strobe makes the 3/3 do 6 damage not 10. What am I missing to the ten damage on turn two?

With hydras you will want a lot of ramp so of course Sol Ring but then look at the key runes and signets Golgari Signet Orzhov Keyrune. I would look to replace Druid of the Cowl with better options like Elvish Mystic or Fyndhorn Elves. Terramorphic Expanse and Command Tower will help with color fixing. Black Market is great ramp in black.

For the infect you could add Lost Leonin Glistener Elf or to fit on theme Phyrexian Hydra

I'm a big fan of running a few board wipes so Wrath of God and Damnation

Suggested cuts Retreat to Hagra Ranger's Guile Malakir Bloodwitch Fetid Imp

jonmaior - It fuels delve for Become Immense and is instant speed card draw. Also because this deck loses Glistener Elf more turn one plays are necessary and Thought Scour is a good one. It allows Become Immense to happen way quicker than infect is used to.

lordjaraxxus64 on BUG Infect

When i ran UG infect, I also only had the 12 infecters (including inkmoth). With this deck I find it much easier to keep my creatures alive than in UG. Against decks like deaths shadow my creatures definitely don't last but it is significantly better. But yes something I get ridiculed for a lot is my hatred of Glistener Elf. The only good thing about it is that it can get a turn 2 kill. If it doesn't do that, it becomes worse than every other infect creature in the deck. So this deck drops the elf, adds more turn 1 plays to make up for it, slows down 1 turn by the average calculations, (UG usually killing on turn 3 and BUG usually killing on turn 4) and it's more fun so yeah I would say it works better.

sylvannos on Help beat Control Modern

Infect or Boggles (probably Bogles).

Control decks in Modern rely heavily on spot removal, then refilling their hands with draw spells. Glistener Elf backed up by Apostle's Blessing or Slippery Bogle means they basically have to play something like Drown in Sorrow immediately. Otherwise, they risk losing on turn 3.

Boggles is especially good against Burn because of Unflinching Courage and Leyline of Sanctity. It also beats up on Tron with Stony Silence.

Brandamn Yeah I had this hand ones in hunderts of games (1: Forest, Glistener Elf - 2 Forest, Groundswell,Groundswell,Mutagenic Growth), but this is not a normal starting hand and your opponent need a bad starting hand as well. Therefor I focus on protection.

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Pauper Exalted Infect?

You're probably going to want to push the Glistener Elfs to a full playset. Even then, I would have no less than 10 infect creatures to be able to reliably win, so I definitely recommend 2-4 copies of Ichorclaw Myr. Being a colorless artifact also makes it easier on your manabase. You could probably cut the Fogs and Court Archers, since Fog is a sideboard card and Court Archers is a bit high on curve.
