Ichorclaw Myr Discussion

A fellow modern infect player, I see. I love mono-black infect, even though I play UG infect.
You run a lot of lands, and your infect creatures have a high CMC. I think Cathedral of War is a really smart include. Here are the edits I am suggesting.
3x Fatal Push
3x Mind Stone
In addition to this, I might cut a few cards out of the sideboard for 2x Dismember.

Infect is one of those mechanics which is scary even in budget lists. Ichorclaw Myr is popular in them.
Without Inkmoth Nexus a different focus is needed from the traditional. Playing a bunch of infect creatures rather than protecting a few will work wonders alongside hand disruption, while multimodal spells free up sideboard slots. These utility spells also have the benifit of not just being used in one deck.
The difficult part will be protecting vulnerable sources of infect damage while either packing enough tempo or midrange value cards. I'd look at cheesy graveyard interactions or tutoring 2 for 1s in green/black.

Contract from Below (ummm... what?? this is too strong and the ante doesnt exist to balance it)
Ichorclaw Myr (colorless infect)
Sun Titan (probably fine)
Porcelain Legionnaire (cheap first strike, hard to kill in reasonable time without using removal spell on a 2 drop)
Winds of Abandon game ending 1 sided wrath (probably just too strong)
Mana Tithe fine card, but not sure why white has counter spells
Peregrine Drake probably fine, but just worth watching for overly easy infinites
Etherium Sculptor potentially too many artifact synergy cards like this in the cube (artifacts might be one of the most well supported archetypes)
Brain Freeze (not really supported?)
Snap again potential infinite mana
Feldon of the Third Path potentially degenerate?
Flameshadow Conjuring (goes infinite with multiple creatures with an iron myr)
Golgari Grave-Troll maybe fine
Sprout Swarm (I've seen this card be silly, but its probably fine)

I like this idea, but I feel it could be a little wilder, in BUDGET 3 COLOUR (yay!)
If you are playing taplands, Terramorphic Expanse/Evolving Wilds gives budget access to all colours, while tri-lands give access to 3 colours. Naya Panorama combined with Jungle Shrine and basics is about as reliable as your current base.
If you are having trouble with tempo, colourless 1 and 2 drops are good alongside panorama and land searching- if you already run draw spells to look for your combo, making up card disadvantage from Renegade Map isn't backbreaking.
Green gives access to budget fixing and ramp, letting you power out the mace/boss while swapping out the feather/clarion package.
Goblin tokens to go with prospector might help, with Kuldotha Rebirth taking advantage of artifact mana fixing- letting you go wide as a back up plan, letting you fight through the kind of removal these combo decks often have trouble with.
Breath of Fury is a spectacular alternative combo. It also lets you lean into a feather/heroic gameplan with cards like Akroan Crusader/Foundry Street Denizen. Alternatively, a more midrangey list with Brimaz, King of Oreskos or the rabblemasters. Haazda Marshal/Precinct Captain offers a low cost target.
Thorn Lieutenant should be fairly cheap rn.
Proliferate cards are budget and have strong interactions with the deck, doubling mace counters or +1+1s, so a backup plan featuring them and some random 'put a +1+1 counter' creatures will stack up pretty well.
Good luck and happy brewing.

Oh, in that case, if you aren't super set on Rakdos, but are just trying to play RBx, I'd suggest going for a Snapdax, Apex of the Hunt infect deck. Mutating up an Ichorclaw Myr, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Flesh-Eater Imp, Ogre Menial, Phyrexian Crusader, etc. seems awesome with double strike. Or you can just hardcast Snappy and put a Grafted Exoskeleton or Phyresis on it.

I think that you should trim the number of your infect creature for some pump spells. Realistically, you probably only need to run a playset of Glistener Elf and Blighted Agent with maybe 1 or 2 Ichorclaw Myr. Your deck wants to kill as fast as possible, so pretty much every infect creature you draw after you have played one is a dead draw. I would recommend adding a lot more pump spells, such as Giant Growth, Groundswell, and Might of Old Krosa. If you really wanted to keep your budget as low as possible, you could go mono green, making your mana base a lot better, and helping you cast thing like Vines of Vastwood. Hope I could be of help!

A friend of mine has done quite well using these in combo with Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer + Mimic Vat : Necropede , Phyrexian Juggernaut , Plague Myr , Phyrexian Digester , Ichorclaw Myr , Corpse Cur , Blightsteel Colossus -has yet to get the last one though.
