Inkmoth Nexus


{{T}}: Add {{1}} to your mana pool.

{{1}}: Inkmoth Nexus becomes a 1/1 Blinkmoth artifact creature with flying and infect until end of turn. It's still a land. (It deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters and to players in the form of poison counters.)

Metroid_Hybrid on Missing promo..

I recently picked up a WMCQ Promo of Inkmoth Nexus for my Commander deck (#ShillAlert), but it turns out that it isn’t in the T/O system (though for some reason, there’s two different MBS lists)

I would add it myself, but I don’t think I have those kind of privileges..

Definitely! Glad I can help :)

Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas I'm sure will generate a lot of hate haha... But if he stays out, he can Anticipate for 5 cards every turn, turn your Thopters or Silas Renn, Seeker Adept into permanent 5/5s (and if you have an Inkmoth Nexus ...), and close out the game with his -4. But if you think he'll be too much of a power shifter, The Antiquities War fills almost the same shoes while being a less obvious threat.

Spider Umbra seems strictly worse than Vines of Vastwood . I'd also drop 1-2 Rancor (bad against Control) for 1-2 more Become Immense . Your mana base is a little weird too. I'd run 8 fetches and 4 Inkmoth Nexus . Not sure if the current mana base reflects budgetary concerns. And drop 3 Forest for the three additional lands I mentioned.

Hi itachi45 !

First of all, thanks for your comment !

I've always liked Infect but never was a big fan of the usual aggro/combo variant. So i played a Mono Black style since a long time because i love Phyrexian Crusader and think it can be a very efficient win-con in Modern. B/G should be the way to go but i'm pretty sure a Rakdos variant could have decent results : casting Anger of the Gods when you have a Crusader on the board is pretty enjoyable and Blood Moon is still a thing in Modern.

I have only play-tested the deck on MTGO for now and made some choices :

I will still give a go to different things on MTGO and refine the deck to try to find the best options ! I usually play another deck in FNM but if my attempts are conclusives i will try it IRL ;)

(Sorry if my english isn't perfect, i'm french^^)

Greetings, fellow Phyrexian!

itachi45, High Counsel of Jin-Gitaxias, coming in for a comment.

Good to see another player spreading the work of the father of machines!

If you really looking to make this as competitive as possible, I will refer you to my personal list that I use, Brother, That Looks... Infected. My list isn’t really optimal, since I’m using birds of paradise instead of noble hierarch, but other than that it is as competitive as it gets.

My three biggest card suggestions I could make would be 3 copies of Become Immense , 4 copies of Might of Old Krosa , and 4 copies of Inkmoth Nexus .

Here’s Aaron Barich’s Infect Invitational Winner 6/10/18 that he took 1st place with.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to reply!

I like it. I've used Canopy Cover in the past and often found it lackluster but I was using a 2 color build. Manabase wise, I agree with main boarding a Dryad Arbor . I'd also add a second Pendelhaven and 4th Inkmoth Nexus . Sideboard, definitely look at Spellskite and Heroic Intervention can be a nice surprise to survive a board wipe. I think a lot of the mainboard changes I would make would be personal. I've always had better luck with vines of groundswell but again its what works for you. I would bump Ichorclaw Myr up one and Necropede down one. With 4 Rancor , on Ichorclaw Myr it can make people more hesitant to block.

BodhiQL, thanks for the suggestions, both are in my plans.

Your decklist is very close to what I crave. The considerations you made about the deck will be very useful to me !!

The way you teach playing with this deck is something I've never seen anyone do. Congratulations!!

As I commented with itachi45, High Counsel of Jin-Gitaxias, my difficulty is dealing with the low budget.

I considered buying cards like Hinterland Harbor , Botanical Sanctum , Yavimaya Coast and Birds of Paradise ... These cards would give you an urgent help for a much cheaper price.

I thought about it and realized that I would be spending money on something that would not serve on the deck in the future, and that would force me to sell those cards to get the ones that are really needed.

With the budget I have today, I would be able to buy a Noble Hierarch every 3 months ...

Earlier this month, I plan to purchase at least 2x Inkmoth Nexus , I think it will not make so much difference in my games. I understand that my greatest urgency is to correct the mana base, but buying 1x fetch and 1x shock as I see it would help a lot less than the 2x Inkmoth Nexus .

Anyway, I am still open to suggestions!!
