Ichor Rats Discussion

shadow63 on B/W INFECT?!!

I don't see why you have Lingering Souls in here. I think Ichor Rats would fit the deck better

WillowtheCouncil on Infect

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.

Finally, remove the Virulent Wound for 2x Throne of Geth (2 mana to add a poison counter), and 2x Hand of the Praetors.

Even more finally, replace Untamed Hunger with Snake Cult Initiation. Use the Snake Cult on a flier since it stacks with infect. Yeah. Okay. Make the changes and I'll help you again after.

DM_Cross on Hapatra

I really enjoy this build! I like the inclusion of a bit of Infect to go with the negative counters that Hapatra runs off of. My only concern for you is that you seem to only touch on Infect. General consensus appears to be that you need to either go all out with it or it isn't strong enough. Keep in mind that you can also use Wither effects to get negative counters on blockers!

Hand of the Praetors and Ichor Rats are good cards for Infect, Beastmaster Ascension is a great card for Hapatra in general and probably does wonders with Infect. I'm on the fence about suggesting Doubling Season since I did notice a fair few abilities that put counters on YOUR creatures as well and obviously you don't want to kill your own creatures off by mistake. Maybe toss in a Rogue's Passage and/or Prowler's Helm for some redundant means to get Hapatra through blockers.

Maybe I missed it, but I don't see MUCH card draw. Maybe toss in Greed or Underworld Connections? At least a Fecundity because it'll deter people from board wiping you due to all the card advantage you'll get if you have lots of snakes and Elves and Insects.

Overall, nice deck! +1!

Funkydiscogod on Golgari Counters. PLEASE HELP

Ichor Rats and Phyrexian Vatmother both benefit from the second ability of Winding Constrictor, allowing you to get extra counters.

Michael_1928 on Infectious Reanimation

I like the idea of splashing in an Ichor Rats into every atraxa deck just so you have infect as a secondary win condition, but proliferating the one counter can be kind of slow. Besides atraxa, I did see you had a Contagion Engine, which is great. I play a full on infect deck and some additional proliferate cards I use are: Inexorable Tide for just repeated proliferating, Tezzeret's Gambit and Steady Progress for drawing, and Grim Affliction and Contagion Clasp for removal.

You could also try Grafted Exoskeleton as an additional way to give creatures infect. Tainted Strike also works great as a combat trick when you play it before damage.

Instead of the priests, why not an Ichor Rats? Don't need to even attack with it, and you can start a fast clock.

Pharika_sChosen on What is a good combo ...

3 months ago

I need to know if there is a good combo that can go with this specific creature card. I am open to any suggestions...
