Inquisition of Kozilek Discussion
14 hours ago
So, im looking at this from a competitive modern standpoint, and you have it listed as "casual" in the description. i think to up it to somewhat competitive, some slight adjustments could be made, all while holding the theme and mechanics in place. Some choices of cards to add, in my opinion, to make the deck a little better are:
other general adds to consider for rounding out purposes or spicy flavor are Blisterpod (why not 4?), Mortarpod, Tukatongue Thallid, Nest Invader, Fleshbag Marauder, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Grim Haruspex, Duskwatch Recruiter Flip, Carrier Thrall, Evolutionary Leap, Sultai Emissary, Bloodthrone Vampire, Bloodsoaked Champion, Scrapheap Scrounger, Altar's Reap, Bone Splinters.
Logics on BUG Infect
1 day ago
As an Infect player myself, I see a few things as problems, but am also genuinely curious.
I'm not sure about the 4 mainboard Spell Pierce. If you draw 2 of these against any creature based deck, you've probably already lot. I don't mind playing 4 copies in the 75, but 4 mainboard seems excessive, considering in most game one's a Blossoming Defense will work just as well, and is easier on your mana, or proactively casting an Inquisition of Kozilek will do almost as well.
I'm also curious to the lack of Phyrexian Crusader and extra Shapers' Sanctuarys in the sideboard, as well as the complete lack of graveyard hate. Grafdigger's Cage works wonders, even with Become Immense for matchups like Death's Shadow, or really any Snapcaster Mage or Collected Company matchup.
Basically I'm looking to pick your brain. What feels like it's working? What feels lacking? I'm trying to figure out where infect needs to be to get back into the meta, because I feel like it should still be there, it's just rebuilding the puzzle, and making it perfect. I do really like the inclusion of Plague Stinger, it feels like the extra evasion will help a lot, and with how the current meta is, Glistener Elf does feel bad a lot of the time.
Hopefully some of this helps, and we can figure out how to make infect as powerful as possible.

I don't really know you're budget if any, but I recently helped someone develop a deck that is based exactly around the same ideas you have here.Other cards he is running now are:
Tasigur, the Golden Fang It's a one-of and it's just good.
Stubborn Denial as long as you have something with an Ensoul or Litch, it's a 1 mana counterspell, definitely the strongest addition you can make
Inquisition of Kozilek
Vault Skirge played correctly can keep aggro and burn decks at arm's reach, and against removal decks they will wait until you try and Ensoul one of these, but you won't in that case, unless you have perfect answers.
Signal Pest Usually also unblockable and can take over the game just like Vault Skirge for the deck but gives the deck an interesting aggro line in combination with the Tempo/control aspects
Worldslayer is just not good enough without mitigating the equip cost, or cheating it out or something.
Darksteel Juggernaut again just not worth the mana cost, and once that's out, more of the "do nothing" artifacts can come out for interaction
Rogue's Passage you just won't need it because your 5/5s will be so threatening and/or evasive that they will be the removal and pressure a lot of the time.
Hopefully that helps you get a leg up. Good luck.

It doesn't say it, but I am assuming this deck is budget. I actually love the idea a lot. To sure it up a little more I would run some modern staple spells. They help protect you overall. Like, Path to Exile and Thoughtseize. Both of which help protect you from late game. Your creatures do well to protect you, especially early, so normally I would say Fatal Push and Inquisition of Kozilek, but they are best in the early game and you don't seem to need help there. I feel like you need some kind of mainboard disruption, hate, or removal to protect your deck if you want to be really successful. Otherwise Tree of Perditionand Doran, the Siege Tower look like decent upgrades. Also consider upgrading lands to a combination of fast lands, fetches, and shocks. I'm sure this deck is budget though, but it looks really fun and surprisingly fast. With how much cheap removal modern has Heroic Intervention and things to help deal with spell deck matchups like control and storm.

Inquisition of Kozilek. One person discard is fine in Standard and Modern, but terrible for multiplayer EDH. Discard should be happening on a bigger scale, and with +1/+1 counter strategies, Oona's Blackguard would be much better if you went down that path.

I could run Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek, as you're right that both seem more versatile than Duress, but I appreciate that Duress hits any non-creature spells without costing you any life. It's better against Burn or any other deck that is trying to race you, and can hit both Liliana of the Veil and Chandra, Torch of Defiance.

Is there a specific reason to not run Thoughtseize or even Inquisition of Kozilek over Duress ? IoK only hits Liliana of the Veil, Liliana, the Last Hope and Gideon of the Trials from the currently played planeswalkers, but Thoughtseize hits all.

really like the deck but have some suggestions.Firstly Serum Visions in this deck would be better than Opt because your digging for key pieces and setting up your next turns. Opt is better in control decks were you can dig at instant speed for an answer. Secondly Filigree Familiar as cool as he is seems a little pointless. If you cast him and then emerge with him all you've really done is gained two life and cycled a card. You seems to have the best evoke and emerge creatures but might want more emerge/less evoke creatures to get a 50/50 split. Maybe add Drownyard Behemoth since it has flash and that would mean you wouldn't have to rely on the leyline. Also I think that Inquisition of Kozilek and Negate are probably the best spells for the deck. Since your a stompy combo deck your main threats will be control and over combo decks. I'd still keep push and leak in the side but they're best against aggro.
