Sure thing. Sorry that took a while:

Out:

In:

Mana base(33 is enough at this average cmc):

That's what I'd do and then playtest it and go tweaking. Hope that helps and also that it wasn't too brutal. For real tweaking please add a list of decks you play against or how a normal game looks like(amount of combo decks, creature decks, control decks per game). You do run lot's of creature spot removal, but I let that in, since you might need it.

Daedalus19876 on The Ten Plagues: Locust God EDH | *PRIMER*

Winterblast: Thank you for the comment.

I'm not sure how much High Tide will help here, given that I play a large number of non-basics without Island typing, and I'm not running any infinite combos that rely on it. It's cute with the two untappers, I suppose, but I'm not willing to rely on that synergy.

Murder of Crows is much better than it looks, to be honest - it gives me advantage from board wipes (which normally set me back pretty hard), allows me to draw into interaction when facing GY-based decks such as Meren, etc. It's also an unusual card to see in Locust God decks, which means my opponents often neglect to counter it if I have an Altar out.

Snap over Snapback is a fair argument - Snapback is in there to terminate the Kindred Discovery combo at instant speed with no mana held up, if the Simian Spirit Guide into Firestorm approach fails. Snap doesn't work as well for that role, but it does work better as a bounce before a wheel... I suppose I could run both; Snapback has performed well but I'd be happy to have another copy.

Burning Inquiry seems like a VERY risky idea here; the three extra locusts are not worth the chances of dumping a critical combo piece. I DEFINITELY can't afford the $$$ cost of Candelabra of Tawnos, haha, so that's a strong "no" from me. Merchant Scroll could be passable, I suppose, but none of my blue instants are really critical to the game-plan other than Dramatic Reversal, and Muddle the Mixture might be better for finding that (a card I've intended to add for a while).

Speaking of counterspells, Muddle the Mixture is the primary one I want to add, because it can grab Dramatic Reversal/Grim Monolith/Isochron Scepter (and, if I need counterspells in a pinch, can be Sceptered itself).

I could run Flusterstorm (I have one right here), but I find it's a little... situational, since this deck runs in a lot of different metas (some of which are less spell-based than others). I appreciate that Mindbreak Trap often closes out a game by exile-countering Food Chain, it acts in a similar role against Storm, and it's a very nice "gotcha!" against decks that act when I'm tapped out. Still, it's the only offensive counterspell in a deck that usually uses its counterspells defensively.

Negate or Swan Song are both definitely things I could/probably should run, but as always, slots are hard to come by. I'm not sure what you mean by "high-cost or niche interaction"; the only things that really seem to fit that mold are Recurring Insight, Mystic Confluence, or Mindbreak Trap. Mystic could get the axe, perhaps, but the amount of utility and flexibility the card gives me is unreal.

And on the topic of Day's Undoing - I agree that the card is really bad in the late-game, but there are many hands where I simply vomit out all of my cheap spells and mana rocks from my hand, and I am left with nothing to do. While obviously Timetwister/Wheel of Fortune are better in this role, having a third copy of that effect is nothing to sneeze at when I can use it to draw back into good cards from a bad hand (and often screw with opponents' hand shaping as well). If I replace this with something, I want it to be another spell that can refill an empty/bad hand - maybe Fact or Fiction?

Thank you for your thoughts.

BodhiQL on Simid Infect Sideboard Help

6 days ago

Hey there. I know you said not to comment on the mana base but honestly it looks pretty alright. The only three changes I would make are to switch the Island for a second Forest. Green is more important and prominent in the deck so having a land that can only be blue kinda sucks. The second and third changes are to take out the Flooded Strand and some other land, probably a Botanical Sanctum. Infect plays all low cmc cards so 19 lands is optimal. I would cut Flooded Strand because you only want to play fetches that can get green. Anyway sorry for the mana base rant I know you said not to. In the rest of the mainboard everything seems good. If you take out 2 lands, I would add 2 Become Immense or a Become Immense and a Spell Pierce. Other than that everything is good. In the sideboard I would replace the Fracturing Gust and Damping Sphere. Fracturing Gust is far to expensive. It can only be played on like turn 4-5 with a Noble Hierarch and that requires tapping out. Its just too much mana. Damping Sphere does more harm than good. You're usually gonna win against Tron so the first ability is useless and Grafdigger's Cage is better against Storm because it doesn't harm you. I would replace these two with a Spell Pierce and a Nissa, Voice of Zendikar. Nissa is great against edict effects like Liliana of the Veil and aggro decks like Humans where you can just get a free blocker every turn. Anyway, other than those the deck seems solid. I currently play a Sultai Infect deck, which I will link below. Best of luck to you and your Phyrexian endeavors!

I know it is slow and probably bad but I like it and it suits me just fine. I like how it can focus on the graveyard but the only strategies I have for it is the Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank set and the Sphinx's Tutelage. Any help is appreciated.
