SporeFrog11: I'll consider it for sideboard, thanks. It's competing with Guttural Response in the anti-control slot.

had to stop to think about non-blue counters once you mentioned it. I remembered Avoid Fate , Dawn Charm , Rebuff the Wicked , Dash Hopes , and Mana Tithe . but after that I was stumped on any others.

then I checked the gatherer...

Artifact Blast , Burnout , Red Elemental Blast , Pyroblast , Guttural Response , Lapse of Certainty , Illumination , Mages' Contest , Molten Influence , Not of This World , Warping Wail , and Withering Boon .

and thats not counting Bind and Rust , which while counters, don't counter spells.

Sorry for the text wall...

I've run Infect in these colors since Modern was invented and I can offer some advice based on that experience. I've been quite successful with it, including a PPTQ a few years back, but ymmv.

First, Manamorphose is a trap. I understand the appeal since you aren't running Hierarchs, but you'll find it almost never good enough. Casting it blind to dig for an answer is a bag of bad feels. Of all my advice, however, this is the biggest grain of salt. It's a good card in a vaccuum and you should run it if it feels right. Jut remember, it's not a "free" spell.

Instead, run Simian Spirit Guide . It let's you play Agent and Myr on T1, activate Inkmoth, cast your red spells, and keep up Apostle's Blessing while tapped out. You also get to cut to 19 landspretty safely (Unless I'm wrong. I play Hierarhs,so it's hard to figure. The correct number might be 20-21). If you're going all-in on the combo, I can't recommend SSG enough.

Apostle's Blessing is a main board must if you're running SSG,and also probably if you're not. It pushes through damage, can be cast off Inkmoth, and can get you past giant robots with piles of +1/+1 counters. It's criminally undervalued in the current top lists, in my opinion, but I'm not a pro, so....

Temur Battle Rage isn't necessary. You're only ever using doublstrike to win the game, so instant speed isn't important. Plus, your 3 Strobe and 2 Scale Up are the perfect amount of "I win right now" effects. Cast the Sorcery first and proceed to win.

You run 4 copies of Mutagenic Growth if you're leaning on T2-3 wins. Period. Every saved mana puts the math more in your favor. If you're worried about your life total, this is probably not the right deck anyway.

Rancor is funny, in that it's ONLY ever good to push damage through. I play exactly one, preferring 2-3 copies of Ghor-Clan Rampager along side it. Bloodrush can't usually be countered, and the ability to just cast a 4/4 And beat down in a grindy game is more relevant than you think. It also helps with you Sideboard. More on that later.

So here's what I might do to your main deck:

Now let's talk sideboard:

Force of Vigor is a key upgrade to Infect SBs. Clean up multiple Eidolon of the Great Revel without taking damage. Blow up Chalice of the Void with impunity. Blood Moon / Blood Sun is no longer so bad. This spell was printed for Infect.

You need counterspells to beat counterspells. Your pump spells counter almost everything else. Spell Snare is far too narrow. If you're casting Blue Counters, it should be Spell Pierce , but maybe Guttural Response is your best bet since since keeping up Blue Mana is hard without Hierarchs. It's also casts with SSG and pitches to FoV above, which is convenient.

With your configuration, and assuming some of the MD change suggested above, I would run the following board in an unknown meta:

no problem from top to bottom on my list Collector Ouphe : the hardest match ups for this match up are Hardened Scales affinity tron infect and Goryo's Vengeance this cards hits the first two

Damping Sphere : storm, some tron decks, amulet titan, and finally, RU Phoenix

Dismember : when two doesnt cut it against Thing in the Ice  Flip or hallow one decks. you can also use it against Grislebrand to make their math harder

Force of Vigor : this or Creeping Corrosion was tried to contain affinity or hardened scales just testing force of vigor

Guttural Response : it was between this and Autumn's Veil and the defining factor was the tap all ability on Cryptic Command i might change it back though because of control match-ups

Scavenging Ooze :this is a hit all card for me its used in all burn aggro and mid-range deck match ups

Seal of Primordium :eight words Chalice of the Void on one or Worship

Might as well add a Guttural Response to the deck :)

You definitely don't need that much artifact removal in the board. Stick to around 3 artifact hate cards, like 2 Ancient Grudge and 1 Nature's Claim (that's how I'd split it). That is, unless you play against a lot of affinity. You could also use a couple Guttural Response to help against counterspells, though it's pretty bad if you hit one with an Experimental Frenzy out so Defense Grid might be better. Dragon's Claw can give you some leeway against burn and other aggro decks. Probably only play at most 2 of those.

Leozilla, Yes, Mikaeus would be a great addition, but this is still a budget deck. If one day I can put my hands on one Mikaeus, he will go for sure!

A constation on this deck after several play through is the lack of response against blue control. I think about putting Guttural Response or Pyroblast , is there other things?

Vexing Shusher is your friend.

Also Pyroblast , Red Elemental Blast , Guttural Response , Mana Tithe , Lapse of Certainty , Burnout . If they're running targetted removal, Rebuff the Wicked , Avoid Fate , and Dawn Charm .

They wanna play control? Control them right back.
