I can respect somebody who is actively trying to play the worst Commander in the game and actually making it work.

Here are a few cards I think you could consider Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Phyrexian Crusader, Whip of Erebos, and Beseech the Queen.

Inkmoth Nexus if you aren't on a budget.

One of Infect's main advantages is that its creatures are already really hard to block. Inkmoth Nexus has flying, Blighted Agent is already unblockable, Phyrexian Crusader has relevant protections, and Plague Stinger has flying. Basically your creatures except Glistener Elf are probably not getting blocked, so I'm not sure if Umezawa actually does that much for you.

@DemonicExecuter so, to put this bluntly. I. Love. The. Idea. Of. Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon in the deck. And I'm literally running x2 copies of Phyrexian Crusader in the sideboard. You could easily swap the crusaders mainboard, in replace of almost any of the 3 drops, and having a Death Baron on the field and 6 mana means that our big scary dragon is now a bigger scarier one, and the opponent has a 5/5 hasted flyer aimed at their face and a 2 turn clock. By all means go for it, the reason you will never see the skeleton dragon here is simply because, well, that little title under his name doesn't specifiacally say zombie. I'd limit him to one or two copies max though, to not throw off ramp too much. Otherwise build up those counters bud, have fun!

So quick question, I had previously made an infected deck once upon a time and now I am making a zombie deck. I really liked the deck you made and I have planned on trying to build it. So from my infected deck I have x4 Phyrexian Crusader and a Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon. Would there be any room to add the Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon to this deck since it can not only gain haste for 1 mana but regenerate itself for 2 mana? Also, I was curious want would be a good choice to try and add x2-x4 Phyrexian Crusader into this deck or if it isn't worth it. I thought it would be an interesting concept to add so as to build up pressure on an opponent via a few infected hits plus the protection from red and white they carry. Just a few thought's I had about this deck, plus it would save a little money so I can get the 3 Liliana Planeswalkers lol

First thing I noticed is Deathgrip which is awesome. You could probably go more in this direction with some tutors to match your opponents colors. You might like Phyrexian Crusader, Gloom and/or Dystopia.

I would suggest these revisions to the mainboard: +4 Phyrexian Crusader -4 Scar

-2 Swamp +2 Memorial to Folly

-4 Swamp +4 Inkmoth Nexus (I know this is a budget deck, but I believe this will receive a reprint soon, and while 1-2 copies is expensive, it won't break the wallet)

-2 Septic Rats +2 Ichorclaw Myr

-2 Blowfly Infestation +2 Nest of Scarabs

+1 Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon -1 Virulent Wound
