Phyrexian Infiltrator Discussion

Well budget knocks out Treachery and Gilded Drake sadly.... Hmmm Phyrexian Infiltrator is an oldie but a goodie thats a nice budget option. Insidious Will is another nice choice.

JuiceKelly. As well as the fantastic Gilded Drake and the criminally underplayed Phyrexian Infiltrator

ptownazkikr on Does phyrexian infiltrator’s ability fizzle ...

I know that if the creature Phyrexian Infiltrator is targeting dies then the ability will fizzle, but what happens if the infiltrator is killed in response? Do I still get the targeted creature or must the infiltrator be on the battlefield to be exchanged?

Maybe Tempt with Vengeance? Grenzo, Havoc Raiser for some goad redundancy.

Chaos Warp for some spot removal and fits the theme. I would try and find space for a Blasphemous Act or other boardwipe as well as the No Mercy in the sideboard

Phyrexian Infiltrator has in its activation cost thus is Dimir color identity.

And maybe if your playgroup tries to hate you out of the game Stunning Reversal might help leave you in it to keep the fun rolling.

Not crazy about Gilded Drake or Phyrexian Infiltrator and I feel like you could throw two more super busted ETB cards into the mix. This looks super fun to play though!!!! Just might have to build it myself and give it a try. Awesome job, zigkid3!

You control the flicker ability, so it exiles the Phyrexian Infiltrator and then brings it back under your control.

Hi, So if I soulbond Deadeye Navigator to a Phyrexian Infiltrator, activate the Navigators effect to flicker the infiltrator, then while that effect is on the stack, activate the infiltrators ability to exchange control of the infiltrator for an opponent's creature, the exchange happens first then the flicker, but who's side of the battlefield does the infiltrator come back on, Mine as it was activated while it was under my control, or the opponents?

SteelSentry on Most Flavorful Phyrexian Cards?

2 years ago

Life's Finale, Phyrexian Rebirth, and Black Sun's Zenith are all good board wipes, the first one especially if you intend to run reanimation effects (like Reanimate or Phyrexian Delver, two other flavor cards). Engineered Plague is good if tribal is big in your meta, and Reprocess isn't bad either. Less played options that can be okay are Phyrexian Infiltrator and Phyrexian Etchings. Phyrexian Metamorph is an all-around good card. Phyrexian Totem is, frankly, a bad mana rock, but hey, it's Phyrexian. Torpor Orb is also Phyrexian, but I would not add it if it hoses you. Soul of New Phyrexia is pretty good in EDH.
