Grim Affliction Discussion

magic is a rather literal game, effects that target, need the word target (otherwise it doesnt), same with the difference between Festergloom and Black Sun's Zenith. Same with Hapatra, She only cares that a creature got a -1/-1 counter, not the number of counters (Black Sun's Zenith for x=1 makes the same number of snakes as x=4)

First thing, your deck is in standard, but you're not playing standard legal cards. I assume you meant modern? You should change it.
your deck has some really expensive cards for an infect deck. Black gets access to a few proliferate cards.
Replace Spread the Sickness with 4x Grim Affliction. You put on the counter, then proliferate, killing anything with toughness 2 or less for 3 mana. The prolif effect is cheaper, and thus faster. Since you're playing mono-black, which doesn't have access to the same type of pump, you want more prolif. Also, if one of your infect creatures gets blocked, you can prolif the counters on what they blocked. I think 99% of the time it's a better card. Replace the Phyrexian Digester and the Guardians of Meletis with Core Prowler. It's another infect creature, and if it dies, then you get to prolif. Replace the Blackcleave Goblins with 2 more Ichor Rats, since they have a better etb trigger. Replace the Dark Favor and Deviant Glee with 4x Unholy Strength. 1 for 2 on 4 cards is better than one card being 2 for 3, and 3 cards at 1 for 2. Unholy Strength is also cheaper in dollar amounts.

I took out Hazardous Conditions because it was just too problematic to use with Thelon on board.
Hazardous would work so much better if there only were more ways to get counters on Thelon, so he wouldn't die on it. Sporogenesis works alright, Grim Affliction and Incremental Blight are a bit counterproductive I'd say.
Sometimes it doesn't matter but sometimes you sweep out your enemies tokens just to realize that your thallid with 10 spore counters is only a 1/1 with Thelon gone. :(

Three mana to kill one x/2 though isn't that good, especially when they're trying to overrun you with littles. That's what BSZ is for though. I will try a couple Grim Afflictions.

Grim Affliction could be awesome, put one counter and then proliferate, getting at minimum one dudely, potentially lots. The only problem with that card is giving a creature two -1/-1 counters for three mana on its own is kind of crappy.
