BlaineTog on Feeling Green -- Mono-Green Infect

Thanks for your comments.

After a bunch of goldfishing, I can't say I've had much trouble getting keepable opening hands. Strictly speaking, Styles only has 2 more Infect creatures than I do and Rot Wolf has under-performed in testing. It's not terrible or anything but it makes the deck way less explosive. I've had a lot more success taking it out in favor of more pump spells.

Infect is in a precarious position right now so you really gotta embrace its all-or-nothing nature. You can't realistically win by letting the game progress too far so it's better not to plan for the lategame at all.

A creature like Rot Wolf might be good as a recurring source of draw -- Just pump it up and they either get poisoned or you draw a card from them blocking it. That's the big pick I'd suggest, as it's a threat, can draw cards and infect, while oppressive, can win you the game easily.

I see you have Ranger's Guile -- I always love Sheltering Word in decks with big green creatures along with that. Withstand Death and Mortal's Resolve give indestructible as opposed to hexproof if you need it.

If you're looking to ramp quickly, you might want to consider land auras that get you a little extra like Fertile Ground or Wild Growth -- Sadly the ones that draw you cards only seem to let you get mana of any colour which is sort of useless in mono-G. Bequeathal might be an idea in the early game, pop it on a chump blocker and get some draw.

Aura Gnarlid and creatures like Wandering Wolf might be an idea -- If you can pump those up, they're virtually unblockable. Silhana Ledgewalker comes with hexproof too as well as pseudo-unblockable.

Only other thing I could say is to mark Mowu with CMDR in the list so it stands out -- I'm really liking the build otherwise, and as you say at this rarity level it's hard to find good sources of draw, but with some testing and tuning I'm sure it'll be a strong deck to fight against! +1 for good boyes!

Maybe you could swap Rot Wolf with Witchstalker?

I don't like the idea Rot Wolf in this deck. The infect would not benefit you as much as more damage-dealing creatures.

What about replacing it with Timberpack Wolf or something like that?

hi nice list recommandation would be to splash blue to have acces to Blighted Agent and Distortion Strike and maybe even Brainstorm also where is your 4 Rancor? also 2 Rot Wolf could be usefull Invigorate is a slightly better card then Groundswell

for the sideboard Lotus Petal could be usefull in the mirror or hyper agresive match and Nature's Claim is probably better then Gleeful Sabotage

After few games I noticed this deck needs more death-touch than infect.

Changing Cystbearer - Ichorclaw Myr - Rot Wolf for Deadly Recluse - Thornweald Archer.

Also more counter-spells Turn Aside - Counterspell.

More draw Preordain - Brainstorm

For Infect one more Chained Throatseeker and I added Blighted Agent to help mark opponent with at least one poison. Blighted Agent also helps a lot to finish game faster.

More tap enchountments Psionic Gift
