Plague Stinger Discussion

I'm not sure how much the basic Island helps you. I'd rather play Botanical Sanctum, because green is the most important color. With dual lands and not very much blue stuff, Islands just hurt the deck's consistency. Same with the Swamp, because Blooming Marsh is just better, but you do have more black spells. Ichorclaw Myr isn't very good, and with the Inkies, Elves, and Agents, along with Hierarch you have plenty of creatures. I'd play Plague Stinger instead of them because evasion is important and probably even over Crusader because it comes down faster and is less black mana intensive. You are correct to play only 2-3 Become Immense, the full playset will actually slow down the deck, which isn't very good. I'd also complete the set of Might of Old Krosa before playing Groundswell. Mutagenic Growth might even be better. The sideboard seems good, but I don't know whats in your meta. Spell Pierce seems better than Dispel though. I also quite like Shapers' Sanctuary because it pretty much makes control and burn decks cry. Anyway, the deck seems pretty good, so you may want to disregard all of this. If you want, you can check out my list, but I opted to not play black. Deadly Neurotoxin Anyway, good luck with Infect. Its my favorite deck in the format : )

Fist off Phyrexian Crusader cant be pathed cant be bolted, first strike, why not. Glistening Oil can help with your curve.Plague Myr can help with mana a little, heck Plague Stinger can even get the poison rolling if you want to proliferate. Viridian Corrupter can help with pesky artifacts and still has infect. Suspend Festering March perhaps? If you were to add some more infect creatures lord them with Hand of the Praetors. Low mana curve wither Juvenile Gloomwidow.

SkullOfPoison - Yeah, Rancor would be a great fit. I wanted to have more pump spells, and the fact that it's repeatable is awesome, even if it's not instant speed. If I need more ramp after a few playtests and some goldfishing I'll add in the spells, and I'm gonna put in the Plague Stinger, Plague Myr, and Fathom Mage, since I have them around. I don't have a Skittles but I'll look for one at my LGS. Thanks for the suggestions.
KALE434 - I'm looking for ways to upgrade the mana base/make it faster and more flexible. Maybe Innistrad check lands? I like Gemstone Mine a lot and I do have a Crystalline Crawler, he's sitting in the maybe board cause he seems a bit slow. Thanks for commenting.
Snap157 - I know everything in the deck has a target on it, so I'd like to add more protection, just not sure which exactly to go wtih. Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, a Crawlspace, more counterspells (or a Teferi's Protection), or creature-based protection like Soul of New Phyrexia or Spellskite are all possibilities I'm considering. Thanks for your advice.

Hey there! Great start-
Infect tries to win usually early to mid game, so a few creatures here are for late game and are not going to see too much play. I would take out Blightsteel Colossus and Reaper of Sheoldred as well as Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, and I don't think that Liliana of the Dark Realms is really helping the deck. Because over half your deck is creatures, cutting the big ones for better cards shouldn't be and issue.
You should be fine with about 15 creatures, so I would keep all your Blighted Agents, and Plague Stingers, along with 3 Phyrexian Crusader, and then having the last 4 slots being taken up with your personal combination of Hand of the Praetors and Viral Drake. I don't want to sound rude but the the rest are space filler
once you've got it down to those creatures, you'll have 22 slots left (i think)
Because your win-con is infect, you'll want to protect your creatures. I would put in 2-3 copies of Dispel, as it protects your creatures from removal and also protects you from burn. You may want a copy or two of Robe of Mirrors as well. Mutagenic Growth may also be a good idea for pumping creatures for the win.
Hope this helps!

Deck looks excellent and a blast to play. Only thing i would change is just shuffling from side to main. I would take out one of your pumps (I would do Groundswell but its your call) to get the second Fatal Push in, and I would swap 1xPhyrexian Crusader and 1xPlague Stinger for your two Whispering Specter. Looks fast and nasty, glad its working out for ya!
