I don't see the "Devastating Speed" portion of the deck. You have no 1 drops. An INFECT deck has NO 1 drops. That's not "Devastating Speed", that's derogatory and slow. You need, Need, NEED Glistener Elf . Or at the very least, Blight Mamba .
Instead of using black kill spells, use spells like Distortion Strike or Aqueous Form to get past blockers. You can also use cards like Simic Charm or Apostle's Blessing to get past blockers or defend against trouble creatures. Vines of Vastwood , Apostle's Blessing , Simic Charm , and Veil of Secrecy can do multiple things as well as protecting your creatures. Pendelhaven is an important part of any Infect deck.
Black is just too slow for even a mildly competitive Infect deck, because EVERYTHING is at least 3 mana, which for an Infect deck is WAAY to expensive mana wise.

Cool idea: feels quite a bit like a nice variant of the Oops All Lands deck that I see not so infrequently. Here are some thoughts (that might not have hurt too much):
- Do you have a way to consistently deal with Blood Moon ? It's not looking like it, so I would recommend Engineered Explosives , Krosan Grip , or counterspells like Daze . Maybe one or two basics could be good to provide the extra colors you'd need.
- Life from the Loam is a possibility for you to get more land cards at record speed, plus you can dump more lands into your graveyard (for more fun!).
- Pendelhaven , if used judiciously, is an extra boost for your manlands. Plus, it's green.
- I commonly see Karakas in sideboards or main decks, because a lot of creatures running around that can cause problems are legendary. While off color, it's maybe not a bad idea for the bonus effect.
- I don't like Temple of the False God in here. I'd think Ancient Tomb might serve you better... or maybe run a copy of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth .

I like it. I've used Canopy Cover in the past and often found it lackluster but I was using a 2 color build. Manabase wise, I agree with main boarding a Dryad Arbor . I'd also add a second Pendelhaven and 4th Inkmoth Nexus . Sideboard, definitely look at Spellskite and Heroic Intervention can be a nice surprise to survive a board wipe. I think a lot of the mainboard changes I would make would be personal. I've always had better luck with vines of groundswell but again its what works for you. I would bump Ichorclaw Myr up one and Necropede down one. With 4 Rancor , on Ichorclaw Myr it can make people more hesitant to block.

Honestly everything seems good here except the mana base. Like you can make do with the Birds for now, but start saving for those Nobles.
The problem I see are 3 lands. Island and Flooded Strand . I highly disadvise any land than can only tap for Blue, as your primary color is Green. Some 2 land hands are a lot worse if you have Island and Inkmoth Nexus , but this would be perfectly fine if that land could tap for Green. I would swap it for Pendelhaven number 2. Flooded Strand can only get Breeding Pool , and sometimes 2 life makes a difference so I would switch it to 2 more Wooded Foothills to get Forest or Dryad Arbor just in case.
I also recommend Shapers' Sanctuary as I said in the comment on my decklist page.
Other than that it seems good. Nice to find other Infect players roaming about so have an upvote. Happy poisoning!

I've been testing Pendelhaven and it's very good. I'm gonna try 2, but more than that might cause mana issues if more than one come up. Mana can be tight with a bad draw using only 22 lands.
Inquisition is extremely cheap removal. It can be pretty decisive early game, but Abrupt Decay is pretty good here too. Thoughtseize is strong, but a little problematic for burn and aggro matchups. Mutagenic Growth is quite good but it would be replacing Rancor or Might of Old Krosa both of which are also very good. It has a surprise and early game advantage over Might, whereas Might could mean more damage/protection, and Rancor sticks around and is hard to get rid of, and trample is a game winner too.
There's no room for Tainted Strike for what probably amounts to a gimmick, though it could warrant testing.

I think you're right about Assassin's Trophy , but Pendelhaven might have issues due to the number of non-1/1 creatures, and due to the number of cards that make the creature not 1/1 anymore. It's probably be worth putting in anyway, but I am concerned about getting too vulnerable to Blood Moon .

I’ll try to answer your questions in order.
In relation to the investment, if you have $30 a month to spend I would spend it like this: 1 Inkmoth Nexus and 1 Windswept Heath 4 times, then 1 Wooded Foothills and 1 Pendelhaven 2 times, both Breeding Pool one time, then the last 2 Flooded Strand the last month. That’s the most expensive part is the land base in 8 months.
If possible, buying all of the inkmoth nexus at the same time would be ideal, but the previous plan I laid out also works. The positive point of that is every month that you invest your deck it’s a little bit better and so you’ll start seeing better results almost immediately.
Definitely get those birds of paradise or noble hierarchs. You’ll start to see an immediate difference.
Slip Through Space is one of those cards that a lot of people have a Lotta different opinions on based on your playing style. Personally, I prefer getting to spell’s for the price of one, just because it makes your creatures that much harder to play around for your opponent.
Become a man’s is, like you said, not terribly essential, but it does make for some seriously busted play.
Mono Redburn isn’t our best matchup, but with my version it is capable to out race their burn. The biggest point with burn is you need to be careful with your own fetch/shock and you need to find a good big turn to go off.In those games, I almost always bring in my three sideboard Wild Defiance to mostly ruin my opponent’s targeted burn. In that kind of game, you’re going to be using a lot of your protection spells like vines of the vast word and Become Immense to save your creatures until you can stick wild defiance. That’s also a really good game to bring in some sideboard copies of Spellskite .
