Plague Stinger Discussion

Darth_Savage on Judy's SICK Rak (Rakdos Infect, Breaking the Diva)

3 days ago

Phyrexian Altar, has never been printed in a Modern legal set and a similar effect simply won't be, it's broken. Of late there has been discussion around Krark-Clan Ironworks (probably the closest thing) and its namesake deck KCI, essentially KCI is the most likely deck to be hit with a ban for doing the sort of combo your talking about, all be it with colourless mana.

That out of the way, normally it isn't wise to mix infect creature with non-infect creatures, even something like Necroskitter which has a degree of synergy. Infect wants to kill fast and normally uses evasion Plague Stinger and Inkmoth Nexus for example to deliver that damage. You seem to want something more in the Blood Artist style, but with infect... I guess a Grim Lavamancer granted infect would be close, or a card like Jaya Ballard, Task Mage or Magus of the Scroll that plays in a similar space.

As a competitive casual deck, this is fine, probably even fun, but I'm not sure what you want to do is really that viable in Modern. I am not a fan of the dies to removal argument, but Anger of the Gods is quite likely to scrub your whole board and it is played. This just feels a little unfocused, your not building an all out infect deck and your not building a legal combo deck. Sticking with your idea though I suspect your best plan is a bit more control and use cards like the Lavamancer to deliver your damage. I hope this was of help, good luck with your brew.

Darth_Savage on infect U/Gb

You have a low curve, so you don't need 23 land, at the same time you have 62 cards in the deck, I'd suggest you cut the two Yavimaya Coast to bring you down to 60 cards. Still on the subject of lands, I'd add 2x Cathedral of War, unless you want to pay for Noble Hierarch, cut 2x of Windswept Heath to make the space. An infect deck isn't normally interested in interaction, it wants to deliver its 10 damage as quickly as possible, so Duress, Thoughtseize, and Dismember wouldn't normally be here. I'd also say Apostle's Blessing, is overkill, you already have 4x Blossoming Defense, that opens 5 slots. I'd suggest +1 Spellskite +2 Ichorclaw Myr and your choice of +2 Serum Visions, Mystic Speculation or Reason / Believe, they all fill a similar role, or Mission Briefing.

I wouldn't recommend Silent Gravestone when Grafdigger's Cage or Relic of Progenitus exist. I'm not sure you need to go 3 colours, but black would give you access to Plague Stinger. Hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.

What do you think about 2 more Inkmoth Nexus in place of the Plague Stinger ?

Plague Stinger is THE black infect card along with Phyrexian Crusader if you're going to play black in infect those are two musts IMO

Plague Myr was put in for the added ability to get more mana to use for sideboard after a Mastermind's Acquisition, but after testing it seems to make the deck too slow, so back in with the Plague Stinger (of which still helps out Gray Merchant of Asphodel!)

Promotheus on BG -1/-1 Counters

You should definitely play some infect cards like Glistener Elf, Phyrexian Hydra and Plague Stinger. Also, when the Blowfly Infestation, Crumbling Ashes, Necroskitter combo pulls up, you're hard to stop. Try to get more of them.
