I missing Souls Sisters here Soul Warden Soul's Attendant Suture Priest Essence Warden. When you play creature token, you gain life. What about Mimic Vat ??

As some protection, try use Riot Control and Blunt the Assault. Thanks to your general is possible to play it.

I missing two cards with potencial : Paradox Engine and Phyrexian Processor.

If you play Archangel of Thune, why not second half of this combo Spike Feeder.

Try Aura Shards for cleaning table with your tokens.

And for your token production? Oketra´s Monument. If you have too much tokens, try Throne of the God-Pharaoh.

And what discard ?? Pearl Medallion Mind's Eye Dromoka Monument Seasons Past The Mending of Dominaria

I would replace Proteus Staff and Mimic Vat for Sky Diamond and Charcoal Diamond cause you can never have too much ramp. Other than that, this deck looks pretty good, and it reminds me of The Locust God in some ways.

Just realised, wasn't clear lol. Use the 3 from Dark Ritual to activate the Mimic Vat with the rats on it. Then use the Sol Ring to cast the Dark Ritual again. The casting would trigger the paradox engine to untap the sol ring, scepter and mimic vat to have it all available again to repeat. Hope that's clear, and in fact, correct lol

Thanks LVL_666 for the feedback. The only other Isochron Scepter + Dark Ritual imprinted, Mimic Vat with an Ichor Rats imprinted on it, Sol Ring and Paradox Engine. You could pay 3 and copy the rats, use sol ring for 2 and copy and cast the dark ritual, this with the paradox engine would untap all you non land permanent, use the 3 to copy the rats, sol ring for scepter, untap all non land permants, rinse and repeat? You would need a Melira, Sylvok Outcast out though to prevent you from dying to your own infect lol

Hey Doombeard1984, thank you for commenting on the page, and the upvote. You're awesome, I'll definitely give your decklist my two cents. Mimic Vat is an interesting suggestion, as it provides some recursion and synergy with some creatures already in the deck (outside of Ichor Rats. However, outside of that the card doesn't have much use. I'd be more inclined to put it in the deck if I was able to work in a game ending combo with it. Are there any other cards you can think of? I do want to work in at least one infinite infect combo.

Thanks again for visiting the page by the way.

WiredTiger on My academy rector vs opponent's ...

This happened last week, but I like to know the specifics so I can have a better understanding of the game. The other day, my friend and I, were playing each other one on one with our commander decks. I was using my Teysa, Orzhov Scion deck and he was using his Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire deck.

My board state had Teysa, Orzhov Scion, Weathered Wayfarer, and Academy Rector in play. During my friends turn he had Mimic Vat and Greater Good in play, he casted Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, and then past the turn. In response I sacked my three creatures to Teysa's ability to exile his commander. He says that everything should've gone on the stack in a way where he could put the Academy Rector under the Mimic Vat and then sac his commander to the Greater Good so that he prevents the Academy trigger and have his commander imprinted on the Mimic Vat. I've looked into it, but couldn't find a direct answer, but I believe the stack should've been put on the stack like this:

  1. Teysa's ability
  2. Mimic's ability
  3. Academy's ability

Then I would've had priority to play any instants then pass, my friend could do something, and then the Academy's ability would resolve first. Do I have a proper understanding or is my friend right?

Mimic Vat could be a good shout with things like Ichor Rats. Let it die, imprint it, then every turn you can create a copy and therefore dish out a poison counter. I would also suggest Putrefax. You can do the same thing and copy it once you sac it end of turn and have it as a 2 cost 5/3 infect bomb each turn.

I have recently made my own infect deck, Atraxa, The Infectious. so if you fancy having a look that would be awesome. I am also new to the poisonous way of doing things.

Defo a upvote though.

Hey, nice to see an infect commander list on here. Not sure if you’re willing to choose a different commander, because i think Saskia the Unyielding or Atraxa, Praetors' Voice might be better suited as infect commanders as well as giving you access to more colors. Blue is especially nice since it gives you cards like Blighted Agent and clones.

Nim Deathmantle and Mimic Vat might be nice ways to make sure you always have an infect creature to play with.

Viridian Corrupter is a great way to gain access to poison creatures, while preventing others from building up.

Llanowar Reborn and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood are nice lands with your +1 counter theme

Consider Golgari Signet to ramp and fix your mana.

Good luck!
