SynergyBuild on Ultra-Budget: Teenage Mutant Ninja Wizards

5 days ago

I explained how card draw and ramp could help synergise with the deck, I don't know how to build simic, I am a mono-white player, with a tad of red & black, but I was trying to explain how to play modern, not how to make a modern deck, instead, if you want me to tell you how, I will:

Land base, for a land base in a budget deck mono-colors are your friends, trying to do otherwise will take of too much money or be to slow.

Abuse your color's strong suits, in green, abuse ramp, play x mana cost spells, or get card draw and drop your hand, run cards that are mana dumps, and ways to trample over your enemy, things like mono-green ramp/fatties for example. In blue you abuse card draw and counter spells, stalling your opponent hardcore. In red abuse damage and straight speed, in white abuse creatures, small ones that can be buffed, or big ones that can destroy. In black try to mess over your enemy with cards like Thoughtseize, or in a budget deck, Duress is a good option.

Get a subtheme, if your deck is mono-black reanimator, you can run a sacrifice subtheme, where you discard/drop then sacrifice creatures/dredge, then reanimate, then sacrifice, then reanimate, etc.

Another example of a subtheme in white is battalion, the main theme of the deck is drop small creatures and win, but then you have cards with battalion which then allow you to win easier, and with running multiple cards with battalion, when you attack with 3+ creatures, suddenly a bunch of buffs go on all of your creatures all at once.

Tribal is a subtheme, not a main theme as well. It is like running a white-green beatdown deck, and then you realize you have almost all humans, so you can replace the few Dryad Militant's you have for a few Champion of the Parish which makes all of your deck humans, and have elements of human tribal, but it still is white-green beatdown.


Card choice: You want things to either ramp, cheat out cards, or be <4 mana cost, otherwise it will be hard to play, you want your deck to synergise, but also be fast, because control/midrange is too expensive for a budget deck.


In this deck I would run cards that could abuse counters, like cards with double-strike or infect, in blue/green, there are good, cheap options are Ichorclaw Myr and Glistener Elf, or Necropede for infect.

This isn't Modern legal... Berserk and Invigorate weren't printed in Modern legal sets. You may, however, play this in Legacy.

That being said, regardless of what format you choose to play this in, you still will want more than 4x creatures. Inkmoth Nexus, Ichorclaw Myr, Blight Mamba, and Rot Wolf are great as playsets of each if you're staying Mono .

I have found three different infect's that would work to your description: Plague Myr, Necropede, and Ichorclaw Myr. Which ones were you thinking of?

TheVectornaut on Cheap casual infect

I think without a really strong target like Invisible Stalker or maybe a trick like Cinder Elemental, Tainted Strike will be worse than just playing a strong infect creature to begin with. If you run more Plague Stinger, Ichorclaw Myr, Flesh-Eater Imp, Hand of the Praetors, and swap Contagious Nim for Phyrexian Crusader or Razor Swine, you'll be more resistant to removal and won't have to spend cards just to gain infect. You can use that mana instead on cheap pump spells like Titan's Strength and Vampire's Bite. If you do stick with the Strike, I'd probably go all in on creatures that benefit from it. Vexing Devil, Goblin Guide, and Monastery Swiftspear would be the usual suspects, but I have always wanted to test out Immolating Souleater myself. Grafted Exoskeleton could probably be replaced by or supplemented with Phyresis to speed things up, and I'd also look at Rogue's Passage for Whispersilk Cloak redundancy if flying isn't strong enough evasion.

Well as far i know traditionally mono black infect tended to run a few playsets of infect creatures - Phyrexian Crusader, Plague Stinger, maybe Ichorclaw Myr or Inkmoth Nexus (as 4 of) - and support them with an extreme amount of remval and hand distruption spells.
(Black is very lacking in the pump spell department)
The closest thing black has to pump spells are Lashwrithe & Grafted Wargear.

The problem with mixing infect with other strategies comes from the fact that they don't help each other, i mean that infect counters don't decrease life total and vice versa, thus you dilute your deck, and sacrifice speed without getting much out of the deal.
Not to mention that most cards that support creature heavy stuff, like tribal decks, don't do much in the leaner infect decks, since creatures are rare.
For example Bontu's Monument is wonderful, when you cast 7-9 creatures during a game, and its not so useful, when you plan to use only 1 or 2 creatures.

Bond Beetle is 1 mana for a +1/+1 buff, that is pretty eh. Replace it with another infector like Ichorclaw Myr. You can cut down to 20 lands easily, even lower for more pump.

How often will you trigger Hunger of the Howlpack?

Invigorate is free powerful infect pump.

killmeplease69 on 100$ G/U Infect

I have made a deck like this and I would recommend that you use an Artful Dodge or a Aqueous Form to make your Glistener Elf and Ichorclaw Myr unblockable. I would also recommend spending some more money on land, maybe a Misty Rainforest or a Breeding Pool. Another great card is Invigorate. It works because you're dealing infect instead of damage. It is the only reason my deck is not currently modern legal.

Ares111123 on G/U Infect (Possible Turn 2 Win!)

2 months ago

1 Vines, 1 Blossoming Defense, 1 Blight Mamba, and 1 Ichorclaw Myr for a playset of Livewire Lash.

Also is there a reason why you arent running Mutagenic Growth?
