Esbilon on Angel ramp

2 days ago

Glad to see someone else trying to ramp into angels :)

As you probably know, Priest of Titania is not Modern legal, but Elvish Archdruid is! He's a bit more expensive, but also buffs your elves. I also recommend Llanowar Sentinel for getting a lot of elves onto the battlefield quickly, if you also have a decent amount of untapping of your elves going on (unfortunately most of the cards that do that are not Modern legal either).

If you're going to use Hexaflexagon's list as a starting point, I would probably skip Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Kitchen Finks as the former is very expensive and the latter doesn't really do much for your deck. Instead, maybe consider Sigarda, Host of Herons or Shalai, Voice of Plenty.

If you're interested, you can also take a look at my Naya angels ramp deck Angels of Paradise, though that's more white splashing red and green than white-green splashing red.

Thanks for the comment Spazik008
I was toying with Nullhide Ferox or even Carnage Tyrant but that just was a bit much. Thrun, the Last Troll is there for U/W Control match-ups. They typically have enough mana to pay and path Nullhide Ferox or just outright counter it. Plus the "I can't play 2/3 of my deck" doesn't seem good enough. I see where it could be good against discard decks but I think I'd prefer Obstinate Baloth there for the life gain. Nullhide Ferox just dies the turn after it comes in. I think it would be OK against Hollow One because they have very limited removal for it. They could also just chump it with Flamewake Phoenix though. That's what made me consider Carnage Tyrant but that doesn't have the discard-proof portion of Nullhide Ferox. It's an awkward slot because Thrun, the Last Troll doesn't do anything against Hollow one or discard (outside of regenerate at least).

As for Nihil Spellbomb v Grafdigger's Cage; I think it does better against dredge/KCI because it gets rid of the cards they can return to hand which Grafdigger's Cage doesn't. Grafdigger's Cage is best against Kitchen Finks and Vizier of Remedies decks, which aren't really a part of the meta right now. I guess it's good against Bant Spirits decks but I'll take my chances with Thoughtseize.

nUKe13 - i'm glad you like it! yeah, in my years i've played, Infect has always stayed near and dear to my heart, leading me to develop a.. persona, if you will. i like to play around with it, and it helps me stand out on the sight and maybe get me notices more!

i'm gonna address your suggestions one by one: Noble Hierarch - already addressed. i'm hoping, PRAYING that the Ultimate Masters reprint will put a decent dent in this card's price. Spellskite - on the To-Aquire list. card's so good. Kitchen Finks - eh. if my life total is in serious danger by turn 4/5, then i'm not playing Infect right. a solid suggestion, though. Viridian Corrupter - honest to God, i have 3 copies in my deck box that this deck occupies, because i seriously considered them. if the Modern meta start seeing a huge influx of artifact decks (as if it's not already a problem...), then i might board them in in favor of Nature's Claim. Spell Pierce - believe me, i LOVE this card; so good. it's just, in the matchups i need it in (tron, storm, burn, jund, abzan), matchups with lots of control or removal, they're either prepared to pay the 2 mana, have a response in the form of another removal spell, or a counter. Dispel removes 1 of those 3 options, meaning it's more likely to actually do something. to be honest though, if i'm playing it to stop a spell, i'm probably losing the creature anyway.

thanks so much though; i appreciate the input!

Riclamin_Silentread - wassup! thanks for the upvote, brother! i love this deck, have played it for years, and have piloted it to multiple victories. speaking of fast, did you know it's possible for a turn 2 kill?! something like T1 fetch, shock, Glistener Elf, T2 fetch, shock, mutagenic, mutagenic, Become Immense, swing for 11 infect on T2. BOOM.

my list isn't even optimized, actually. i need 2 more fetches and to switch my Birds of Paradise for Noble Hierarch. but they're expensive!

Next_rim, i suggest to add Inkmoth Nexus instead of Mutavault because it is flyer. Also, Kitchen Finks win a lot of time against agro decks, how about to replace 1 Aven Mindcensor and 1 Judge's Familiar with 2 Finks? And main suggestion - how about to add green and switch deck a little bit to Hate Bears mode? I could loan some cards for you xD

itachi45 I love seeing someone express so much enthusiasm and energy with their favorite build. It’s nice to see someone “get in the mood” and “play the part” of their deck. MTG is meant to be enjoyed, not just played. :)

A couple suggestions I had, which some have already been mentioned.

Noble Hierarch - as it has already been said, there is a reason it is upwards of $70-$80. This is exactly what you need. Think about Noble Hierarch this way: Noble Hierarch gives a “normal” creature +1/+1 right? With infect, you’re basically giving your “infect” creature +2/+1 since you only need to hit 10 poison counters. You already have Birds of Paradise, which is a good substitute. Just gotta save for them Hierarchs!

Spellskite - this would just go in the sideboard against builds with a lot of removal. You run already, so isn’t an issue. Gotta protect your infect troops.

Kitchen Finks - you run a low amount of creatures. You also expressed you have to be careful about life total, with all your Phyrexian mana sources. Kitchen Finks covers both of these issues. isn’t an issue either, with your current mana availability and Birds of Paradise. Again, maybe depends on meta, but should hedge yourself against burn or go wide decks.

Viridian Corrupter - this would be a maybe or just a 1 of. Just another infect creature in case Surgical Extraction hits one of your infect creatures. Again, this is less optimal since infect wants to close game by turn 3.

Spell Pierce - I saw you had Dispel in the sideboard. I think it works, but it is a bit limiting, only hitting Instants. Spell Pierce hits everything but creatures. Since you’re closing out the game by turn 3/4, it would be very hard for your opponent to pay an extra just to destroy one of your 2 or 3 infect creatures on board.

All in all, it looks like a mean, cruel, infectious build. +1 from me and a “best wishes” to your goal of infecting the world!

Solemnity is a really strong card that shutdowns Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Vorel of the Hull Clade, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed-Triskelion/Walking Ballista combo, Marchesa, the Black Rose reanimator and general infect decks. Since you're not running any of these strategies, swap in Solemnity. It comboes with Phyrexian Unlife (you can't die since you can't have poison counters), Lost Auramancers (that can be immediately killed with High Market to bring Decree of Silence so no one but you can play Magic), Glen Elendra Archmage (counter every single noncreature spell your opponents cast, since she can't have -1/-1 counters), Dark Depths (the land enters without counters, then immediately turns into Marit Lage - but she can still be easily Swords to Plowshares'd), Glacial Chasm (if it can't get counters, you can keep it forever to never be attacked), Mystic Remora (free draws for the rest of the game) and Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle (it enters as a creature). It also comboes with Elephant Grass (more pillowfort), Force Bubble, Delaying Shield and Kitchen Finks, but they're not that good on their own. However, you need to protect your combo pieces: Solemnity+Decree of Silence win combo cost a whopping 11 mana, and can be disrupted easily. So you need protection of targeted removal. Privileged Position, Sterling Grove and Greater Auramancy can do the trick, and the Grove doubles as a tutor. // Enchanted Evening comboes with Aura Thief+High Market, Cleansing Meditation, Calming Verse, Opalescence+Mirari's Wake (all opponents' lands will be 0/0s and will be put into the graveyard while yours will be 1/1s) and Serra's Sanctum. // Omniscience + an Enchantress + Approach of the Second Sun is a free win if uncountered. // If I can suggest some improvements on your manabase: Exotic Orchard, Rogue's Passage, Prairie Stream and Yavimaya Coast are cheap replacements for Thornwood Falls, Woodland Stream and 2 Islands. Weirding Wood is better than Gift of Paradise, because it can draw you a card via Clue. Card advantage is crucial in EDH, and you should run at least 6 sources of realiable draw. That's why I recommend you to run Mesa Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, Kruphix's Insight, Mystic Remora, Rhystic Study, Sylvan Library (comboes with Abundance), Argothian Enchantress. // Eladamri's Call tutors your creatures. Ground Seal and Rest in Peace shutdown graveyard stategies. Open the Vaults is a really good budget replacement of Replenish and plays around Ground Seal (better replace Hanna, Ship's Navigator - she's too slow). Courser of Kruphix, Land Tax, Mirari's Wake, Burgeoning and Exploration are great ramp Leyline of Anticipation allows you to play on your opponents' turn. Copy Enchantment gives more utility. Search for Azcanta  Flip fills the graveyard for Open the Vaults and easily flips into a good utility land. Seal of Primordium, Seal of Cleansing, Banishing Light, Stasis Snare, Cast Out, Prison Term, Act of Authority, Detention Sphere, Imprisoned in the Moon, Song of the Dryads, Grasp of Fate and Aura Shards take care of troublesome permanents. Energy Flux, Aura of Silence and Stony Silence deals with artifact decks. Austere Command, Wrath of God, Supreme Verdict and Cyclonic Rift are great boardwipes. Teferi's Protection is the best protection spell ever released. Karmic Justice and Martyr's Bond tell people to don't mess with you. Collective Restraint is another Propaganda effect (comboes with Prismatic Omen).

However if the follow-up question is about sacrificing a Kitchen Finks that's already died once in order to put a counter on it to counteract the counter from persist, then no, for the same reason in the first answer.
