if you want infect you should be running these

Tainted Strike

djewell, sadly Strionic Resonator doesn't work that way. I thought it did at first too and got all exited, but no such luck.

For suggestions, if you're looking for more cheap cards to make creatures unblockable, there's Rogue's Passage and Seismic Stomp. Also, Tainted Strike seems to me rather redundant since almost all your creatures have infect already. Maybe something like Overblaze instead since it's effectively a x6 multiplier with Saskia out?

In order to grow Kresh quickly, i suggest adding a couple of high powered creatures that die of their own abilities, like Phyrexian Dreadnought, Spitebellows, Force of Savagery, Briarhorn, Shriekmaw, Ingot Chewer. If you go that route, Varolz, the Scar-Striped, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Dual Nature and Flameshadow Conjuring also become interesting options for your deck.
I think Rancor, Temur Battle Rage and Tainted Strike would help you a lot, all three are great tools to make Kresh lethal quickly.

I've been playing Prossh for a while and some of the cards i liked a lot with him are Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Smothering Abomination, Chancellor of the Forge and Shamanic Revelation.
Also, since Berserk is on your list of potential additions, take a look at Tainted Strike and Temur Battle Rage.

X_Animis_X yep these are surely good ideas. I've had Dismember in my "next card-buying campain" list for a long time. The lands are interesting; Tainted Strike, on the other hand, I had always thought I better leave it to infect decks, but it's not a bad idea.. not at all :-)

first of all since it IS a budget deck you could take out that Dimir Aqueduct and throw in some Choked Estuary or Drowned Catacomb. next, throw in a win con... Tainted Strike should be perfect since your assassins are unblockable so infect would go for the win quicker. infect would also be a good defense if things try to take a turn for the worst. Cyclonic Rift would also help if Royal Assassin can't pop off right away. Dismember would also be good since it can weaken the creatures that have indestrucable. hopefully this can give some good ideas
