You could improve it a lot just by optimizing the cards you have. For example, all your hand disruption cards can be replaced with a combination of Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, or even Collective Brutality. Researching, and finding the best version of each card can go a long way to improving any deck. Unfortunately, better cards tend to be more expensive, but if you can afford it you'll notice the difference.

Also, in an infect deck you typically want fewer creatures, more pump spells. So I'd cut Contagious Nim, and Bontu's Monument in favor of more removal/pump/hand disruption spells.

Finally, as a general deck building rule for beginners: to start a deck out pick 9 cards that you'd like to base the deck around. Run 4 of each, + 24 lands and BAM deck. From there you can shuffle things around a bit (fewer high drops more low drops/more lands or less lands/Varying your removal). This helps trim the fat, creates a consistent deck, and gives you a nice starting point.


Do your research, test it out, keep what works toss what doesn't. Always glad to see new players. Best of luck! on BUG Infect

I like this list a lot! Going into black gives you a ton of good stuff. Plague Stinger is a really good choice! I will say that I agree with filthyc4sual in that Opt alone should be fine in terms of card draw, and Inquisition of Kozilek or Blossoming Defense would be good in it's place. And they're both one drops so your curve remains the same!

The problem with Inkmoth Nexus is that it basically takes up a creature slot, since there are very very few generic mana costs in this deck. I dropped 2x Woodland Cemetery and 2x Plague Stinger in favor of 2x Inkmoth Nexus & 2x Fatal Push. I don't really want to have Become Immense nor Phyrexian Crusader in my opening hand, but would love to topdeck both after T3/T4, so 1x each seems good. I also replaced one Forest with a Pendelhaven.

tazleon7 3 blossoms are in the sideboard for removal heavy match ups, and as someone who moved to this from U/G infect, I like Plague Stinger over Glistener Elf very much. All the infect creatures are now very evasive, and a glistener elf could almost never get damage through without a Distortion Strike or something. Disrupting Shoal is a unique card, but it's extremely useful. Being able to tap out on an aggressive game closing attack with a counter left up is extremely powerful. I don't see why 21 lands is a bad choice though. If you could elaborate a bit that would be appreciated. filthyc4sual I do think I'll test with inquisition over serum visions, that could be pretty nice. I think I would rather play an inquisition on turn 1, but serum visions is sooo good.

Plague Stinger is better than Phyrexian Crusader in my opinion, because not only is it less mana and devotion to mana, it also has flying that can make it easier to hit your opponent with it early, it's not limited to red/white to stop it only other creatures with flying
