Kulrath Knight Discussion

Necroskitter, Midnight Banshee, Carnifex Demon, Kulrath Knight, Cinderbones, Blowfly Infestation, Crumbling Ashes, Nest of Scarabs, Corrosive Mentor, Everlasting Torment, Harvest Gwyllion, Needle Specter, Noxious Hatchling, those are all great paired with infect.

@pints34 another user asked a similar question above. I'd replace 4x Septic Rats for 4x Phyrexian Crusader; in my opinion the protection and first strike outweigh the potential -1/-1 in stats when attacking. Some would say Ichor Rats, but I find the guaranteed poison counter upon entering the battlefield too good to pass up (due to proliferate).
As for Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, replacing a Plague Stinger is probably the safest choice. You could replace a Kulrath Knight since it has the same converted mana cost and wouldn't affect the curve, but it's also one of the keys to locking your opponent out of the game. Ultimately the choice is yours.
@PickleNutz Happy you enjoyed piloting the deck, I find it shines the brightest in multiplayer formats. I want to note that I haven't scrapped or lowered the potency of my U\G infect deck, I simply play other decks against them like D&D: Dragons and Druids & GW Tron: Wrath of the Titans.

No worries, just covering all the bases here. Kulrath Knight is a great hate card to play against decks that focus on using +1/+1 counters to pump up their creatures. Have fun.

Kulrath Knight specifies that any creatures your opponents control with any counters on them can't attack or block, so under normal circumstances Heroes' Bane would enter with 4 +1/+1 counters, have a functional Power and Toughness of 4/4, and be unable to attack or block. If you were to target it with Splendid Agony and put two -1/-1 counters on it, the result would be a Heroes' Bane with 2 +1/+1 counters on it.
If your opponent had a Dictate of Heliod on the battlefield and you managed to put 4 -1/-1 counters on their Heroes' Bane, it would result in a creature with no +1/+1 or -1/-1 counters on it that has a Power & Toughness of 2/2 and would be able to attack and block as normal. But that would be a silly thing for you to do, yo.

If I have Kulrath Knight on the field and I cast Splendid Agony but my opponent has something like a Dictate of Heliod on the field, would the ability of Kulrath Knight still prevent the creatures I chose to put the -1/-1 counters on from attacking and blocking since Dictate of Heliod is giving my opponent's creatures +2/+2?
My thought is that it would still work because Dictate of Heliod isn't preventing the counters from being placed on the creatures, the bonus is just greater than the -1/-1 counter and Kulrath Knight doesn't specify what type of counters they have to be. If I'm wrong, that's fine. I'm just curious how this would work since some of my friends play decks that have spells that give their creatures bonuses.

Yeah, i think Kulrath Knight is worth it. Maybe only as a 2 or 3 of but i think it still deserves a spot here. As for cuts these are what I think you can take out.
Flourishing Defenses is a bit overcosted. If you want to include the knight, i'm worried you will have too many high cmc cards at the top of your mana curve. Yes it triggers for each counter that gets put on but i don't think it needs to be a 4 of. I'd cut 2 of them.
2x Everlasting Torment. Cool card but almost all your cards have wither already. The nly reason not to cut all 4 is that defenses and nest trigger if a creature you control has counters put on it but i think you could even justify taking all 4 out.
Diabolic Tutor is also pretty slow. Outside of combo decks, or singleton formats like edh i'm not a huge fan (and even then there are better choices)

So Firebones675, what do you think I should change out in order to have Crumbling Ashes and say Contagion Clasp or Contagion Engine in the deck? and what did you think about what Bobby654 said about adding Kulrath Knight
