Idk, this is probably a dumb idea but maybe add some Scale Ups for a more non budget path to go?

lagotripha thanks, I've been meaning to switch up some of the cards in this deck for a while now but I never got around to it. Scale Up and Blight Mamba were already on my list to put in for months, and I'll definitely be putting in Servant of the Scale.

I'd give more consideration to Scale Up and Become Immense as big p/t increases are the driving force in infect. Also Blight Mamba is fun sb texch. Proliferate and counters are a solid idea, but with green leaning into things like Increasing Savagery rather than the white counters on all creatures, I'd be trying to Proliferate Servant of the Scale or abuse Wildcall for surprise Glistener.

I've had some success with Biomass Mutation, but once more it's still pretty inefficient.

Good luck with the brew, budget infect is more scary for people facing it down in fnm cause its just as explosive but less predictable than regular infect.

Interesting idea playing Infiltration Lens's. Here are some suggestions: Blossoming Defense, Might of Old Krosa, and Scale Up.

Infect is one of those mechanics which is scary even in budget lists. Ichorclaw Myr is popular in them.

Traditionally Vines of Vastwood is used for pump and protection, while Scale Up and Become Immense let you kill quickly.

Without Inkmoth Nexus a different focus is needed from the traditional. Playing a bunch of infect creatures rather than protecting a few will work wonders alongside hand disruption, while multimodal spells free up sideboard slots. These utility spells also have the benifit of not just being used in one deck.

The difficult part will be protecting vulnerable sources of infect damage while either packing enough tempo or midrange value cards. I'd look at cheesy graveyard interactions or tutoring 2 for 1s in green/black.

Very interesting. I agree with the comment about spark lands but I would also like to suggest fitting a Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin in. He's 3 mana, and a cheap card. Creates goblins quickly and can get big. I would also recommend putting Scale Up in place of some of your other buff cards. It's not an increase but rather a change in base power and toughness, but for goblins it works. Plus if you overload it while having a huge number of goblins it's even better! I believe the scaled creature keeps its abilities too. The only problem I see left is card draw. Your deck has super low mana costs and you can play things pretty quickly leaving you top decking. Maybe swap a swamp for a Castle Locthwain. One or two Icon of Ancestry or Heirloom Blade might be good too.
