Plague Stinger Discussion

DJMintEFresh on No Friends? No Problem (Budget Infect\Wither)

Awesome deck! The only thing I would change is take out one of the 4x three-drop creatures and replace it with 4x Ichorclaw Myr. The ONLY two-drop creature you currently have is Plague Stinger. Waiting until turn three to play a creature is much too slow.

You might be better off running blue and black. Phyrexian Crusader is too slow for modern infect decks, but I have seen Sultai infect that splashes blue and black only for Blighted Agent and Plague Stinger as well as Thoughtseize (or in this case, Inquisition of Kozilek) usually in the sideboard. I'd recommend looking up Ari Lax's infect deck from Pro Tour Return to Ravnica.

Infect is just cruel! XD Flensermite, Ichor Rats, Phyresis or even Plague Stinger you don't know how many times I have beat out all my friends cause lack of flying or reach cards in their deck! Slow painful death... Good luck!

That's an easy one:

Phyrexian Crusader vs Plague Stinger moden comparision

  • stinger has lower cost, you can drop it 1 turn sooner
  • stinger has flying so it cant be blocked by 90% creatures
  • crusader cant be blocked by 40% of creatures
  • crusader cant be hit with Lightning Bolt, Lightning Helix, Path to Exile, but:
  • both die to Fatal Push and Dismember
  • crusader requires two black mana, which is harder for sultai

@pints34 another user asked a similar question above. I'd replace 4x Septic Rats for 4x Phyrexian Crusader; in my opinion the protection and first strike outweigh the potential -1/-1 in stats when attacking. Some would say Ichor Rats, but I find the guaranteed poison counter upon entering the battlefield too good to pass up (due to proliferate).

As for Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, replacing a Plague Stinger is probably the safest choice. You could replace a Kulrath Knight since it has the same converted mana cost and wouldn't affect the curve, but it's also one of the keys to locking your opponent out of the game. Ultimately the choice is yours.

@PickleNutz Happy you enjoyed piloting the deck, I find it shines the brightest in multiplayer formats. I want to note that I haven't scrapped or lowered the potency of my U\G infect deck, I simply play other decks against them like D&D: Dragons and Druids & GW Tron: Wrath of the Titans.

I have a finely tuned Varolz deck that you can check out if you want, but I'll make some more budgeted suggestions.

Nature's Claim is much better than Natural State especially if you're going to kill with infect/general damage.

Check out Vector Asp, Glistener Elf, Plague Stinger, and Viridian Corrupter for cheap, but effective scavenge targets. Be warned that infect strategies wont make you any friends, but it's an effective way to use Varolz. There's also Tainted Strike and Phyresis (works great with Thrun, the Last Troll!) if you scavenge onto non-infect creatures.

Creatures that are good for scavenging (other thank Phyrexian Dreadnought and Death's Shadow):

A good way to get those creatures into your graveyard is to use Buried Alive.

Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots are good with Varolz. Remember to scavenge BEFORE you equip if you're using Lightning Greaves because of shroud.

I recommend as many tutors as you can afford. Diabolic Tutor is pretty affordable.

You should look for more infect type to make it more streamlined look for alternate win cons like self mill and commander damage.

Mill Show

Next approach i would recommend is infect a cheap and efficient way to close a game out fast

Infect Show

And if neither of these take you fancy look into commander damage routes using dredge cards to fill your graveyard fast.
