Steady Progress Discussion
2 days ago
i also love this planswalker...i have made a few different builds around her just for getting that emblem... i find Bant turbofog to be the most effective but its not exactly the most satisfying...Doubling Season...Thrummingbird...Steady Progress and Clockspinning may help ya cheat extra counters on her.... A fun creature to consider is Shorecrasher Mimic ... he is a BEAST that can take a game on his own if you run lots of spells like Shielding Plax/Coiling Oracle/Winged Coatl/Slippery Bogle/Favor of the Overbeing and basically anything from eventide :p .... Good luck i hope you are able to succeed where i came up short!

Talrand, Sky Summoner, Young Pyromancer, Metallurgic Summonings, and Insectile Aberration Flip should help you along quite well, Guttersnipe too. Tezzeret's Gambit and Steady Progress work well to gain experience, Inexorable Tide will give a similar effect.

My best advice for you is try to keep the deck two-color with Red and Blue. I think the white Splash is unnecessary here because Kargan Dragonlord is already weighted heavy with its double red mana cost, and without running fetchlands (Arid Mesa, Scalding Tarn, or Flooded Strand) or shocklands (Sacred Foundry, Hallowed Fountain, or Steam Vents) getting the mana you need to cast spells will be harder/slower.
Having Kargan Dragonlord as a wincon is really interesting, but it gets killed by the most common removal spells in the game (Path to Exile, Fatal Push, and Lightning Bolt), so your deck might be inconsistent in control match-ups. You also have Lord of Shatterskull Pass and Lighthouse Chronologist which can serve as win conditions too, but still suffer from similar problems that Kargan Dragonlord does.
Fuel for the Cause, Volt Charge, Steady Progress, Inexorable Tide, and Tezzeret's Gambit are very slow because of their mana costs being in the 3-4 CMC range. Cards such as Serum Visions, Sleight of Hand, Lightning Bolt and Mana Leak can accomplish many of the same things at a cheaper cost without the proliferate effect. Another option you could take instead of running these cards are Goblin Electromancers or Baral, Chief of Compliances, which act as pseudo-ramp for your deck.
As far as your engine (level up ramp) goes, I think Venerated Teacher is the best pick you have and you should definitely run a playset of four in your deck. I think Thrummingbird strictly beats out Skyship Plunderer because the option to place counters on any permanent is conditional.
My last suggestion for you is to consider running Saheeli Rai because it can create tokens of Venerated Teacher whose ETB is important to your deck. There are probably other planeswalkers you could run as well, but the choice is up to you :). Good luck in your deck building!

Other cards to consider:

Why are you only running 2 Glistener Elf? Why 4 Blight Mamba? Why 2 Thrummingbird and Viridian Betrayers at all? Ichorclaw Myr is under a dollar, and its way better than the Bird or betrayers. Also, look at Necropede.
Drop Steady Progress all together dude. 3 mana for a poison counter and a single draw? And thats only if you have poison on your opponent.
Lower the overall mana curve. Too many 2 drops. Infect is about being blazingly fast, not a midgame deck with no tools to fight at all.
1-2 Apostle's Blessing in SB would do you well, too.
These are all budget options.

Also, I feel like Plaguemaw Beast is going to disappoint you: I've never gottan much use out of creatures with tap activated abilities. EDH is a wasteland of boardwipes and control, so far more often than not, it'll die before you get a chance to activate it. I'd recommend Throne of Geth instead. Or even Steady Progress. And definitely Clockspinning. MAYBE Gilder Bairn?? Your Mileage may vary.
