The first cuts I would recommend for this deck would be Laboratory Maniac and Arcane Denial . Yes, it is always good to have a back up plan in your deck (lab man), but I really don't think t is needed here since the cards in your command zone pretty much say: "2UUUU, you win the game" (if played correctly). Next Arcane Denial , as an EDH player I love the card, but in a 60 card format (actually 58) I think it gives your opponent too much card advantage. (One cute little trick to remember about Arcane Denial is that you can treat it as: "discard a cantrip and pay 1UU, draw three cards" if the cantrip costs U.) Another thing I would think about adding is Gitaxian Probe since it cycles through your deck and gives knowledge of an opponent's hand for just 2 life.

BTW, you make a fair point about the issue the fetchlands may cause, but on the flip side you could build you deck in the sense that you are in a 53 card format ( Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , Paradigm Shift , Gitaxian Probe , Misty Rainforest , Scalding Tarn , Flooded Strand , and Polluted Delta ) and then that would make it easier to balance the quantities of the rest of the cars in the deck.

First, in commander you can't have planeswalkers as commanders. Second, (I'll stop trolling now, lol) It doesn't seem you have a budget here so why not add Misty Rainforest , Scalding Tarn , Flooded Strand , and Polluted Delta for the extra shuffle effects and minimal deck thinning. Some other possible additions: Windfall , Tolarian Winds , and Scroll Rack . Oh yeah and don't forget in commander we can use planeswalker as commanders (shout out to Teferi, Temporal Archmage ).

One thing you can do, to make a cheap anti-Infect deck, is by finding and using spells that cause you to pay or lose life. Since Infect doesn't care about your life total, this negates the one drawback of these spells. This was traditionally called "suicide black" and (depending on your era) featured spells like Devour in Shadow , Raving Oni-Slave , Imp's Mischief , and other spells that are unreasonably effective for their manacost, because you lose life when you play them.

Since most of their creatures are 1/1, and need pumping, Night of Souls' Betrayal or Curse of Death's Hold win instantly. And don't forget that infect hates Gut Shot and Quicksand .

If you're good at brewing, Immortal Coil shuts down infect as long as it's on the battlefield: those decks are basically designed to deal exactly 10 damage, and can't handle the prevention effect very well. Cracking Polluted Delta , and Thought Scour ing yourself, is a good start to padding your "life total" out of range of infect and burn (bonus points if you're trying to Harmless Offering it to your opponent and pack mainboard graveyard hate , because you beat dredge and phoenix, too). This strategy is basically a metagame answer, because traditional grixis control does better against a wider board.

Occasionally, an infect player might forget that Darkness is a modern legal black Fog , and walk right into it, but your friend will only ever fall for that once.

Laboratory Maniac + Paradigm Shift does work like this: Paradigm Shift does exchange your library with your graveyard. If you have not many cards in the graveyard, then you may win pretty easy with Laboratory Maniac and any draw card.

With Doomsday you are able to put your cards in your library you need to win the game. Fantastic with Laboratory Maniac . A little bit of a risk to play this card. But wow, what an impact does this card make. Guess every opponent can't believe the awesomeness of playing this card.

On the other hand, if you are not going into this idea please take a look at "The Many-Faced God" - [[Primer]], because this deck works nearly the same as your deck wants to work.

If you are going to buy any of this card, please don't haste. This deck needs many test games to see what cards will word and what cards won't. There are many expensive cards you don't need at all. Like Wasteland . Play Strip Mine , this card is cheaper to buy and is better. The only reason that Wasteland is expensive is that Wasteland is unbanned in the popular MTG Play Format "Legacy" and Strip Mine is banned.

You may reduce costs in you lands, if you like to get a more budget reasonable deck. Bloodstained Mire , Marsh Flats , Polluted Delta are way too expensive for their effect. They are 1) better in other formats like Legacy or Modern and 2) you are playing 2 colors, so normally you have both colors available. Sunken Ruins , Minamo, School at Water's Edge , Shizo, Death's Storehouse are good if you have them already, otherwise they won't make that big impact (They are indeed good cards, just saying) if you need to buy them.

Polluted Delta seems like it should be in here to trigger revolt since you have the Fatal Push
