Calyptic on Jenara, Asura of War

No problem! And yes, putting Rafiq in the 99 was what I meant, not as the commander.

I couldn't really give any suggestions (research cards online) earlier, but now I can help more.

Proliferate lets you put 1 more counter on any number of counters on the battlefield, so if you were to proliferate, and you have 5 creatures with +1/+1 counters on them, you can add one more to each of them, and up a loyalty counter on a planeswalker, or an experience counter if you have it. Just any kind of counter. It's an amazing ability to have, and blue has it the most I believe (if not it's a close 2nd).


Good cards to consider for proliferating might be:

Thrummingbird is not bad. It has flying so it'll be harder to get from damaging players and proliferating

Contagion Engine is a MUST for a proliferators. You proliferate TWICE, and weaken your opponent's creatures, (which fun fact you can proliferate those as well). Has kind of an expensive cost at first, but after a bit in the game, four mana to up all your counters, then up them AGAIN will be a walk in the ballpark, especially since most the cards in this deck are 5 or less mana.

Contagion Clasp is the diet sugar-free version of the above, of course its much cheaper, but the ability is the same cost, and only proliferates once. Still not a bad card though.

Steady Progress is a pretty simple instant, and helps for card draw.

Finally, this may not be TOO useful, but is something to think about, Throne of Geth will let you proliferate, HOWEVER saccing the artifacts you have isn't too good of an idea, but that's up to you. At the very least, you could sacrifice the Throne itself to proliferate just once, maybe sac Sol Ring once you have tons of mana? That's up to you.

There are a few other cards which proliferate, but they deal Infect damage. Thankfully you can proliferate the poison counters they give to players and the -1/-1 counters they put on creatures, but it's been my experience playing with Infect decks that it's often better to make Infect the absolute focus of a deck that has it, Reason being that the creatures built around Infect are designed to be very fast, Infect decks are usually fast aggro decks


Good cards for putting counters on creatures might be

Lifecrafter's Gift you can never go wrong with this card, it's almost like proliferate too.Scale Blessing Pretty much the same as above.Patron of the Valiant is like those two almost proliferate cards above, except it's a creature with flying, which means you can put counters on it too!!

Titania's Boon Easy way to get the proliferate train started.

Mikaeus, the Lunarch is slowgoing, and in danger of getting targeted with an instant or sorcery, but you still have counters to throw around.

Vastwood Hydra if you plan on having the gobs of mana for it, or at least enough to put 1 counter on each other creature once it inevitably dies.

Sunbringer's Touch is okay for the first part, but it's mostly for that juicy trample effect that it'd shine in this deck.

Ainok Bond-Kin Tuskguard Captain Crowned CeratokAbzan Battle PriestAbzan Falconer these will synergize the hell outta this deck, in my humble opinion.

Renegade Krasis is another good ol' counter putter.

Celestial Ancient will be useful, with those 12 or something enchantments in your deck.

Inspiring Call is also good for both synergy and card draw.

Contagion Clasp Contagion Engine and Throne of Geth could be useful Inexorable Tide as well. You might consider some modular creatures, or Blinkmoth Urn. Grindclock is pretty good too

I just started building a deck similar without doing a search for it. Here are some of the ideas I came up with:

1) If you are playing multiplayer, Tooth and Nail may be castable, but if you aren't going to pay the entwine don't bother playing it. Otherwise stick with Defense of the Heart. There are lots of different cards you can grab, but my personal favorite pair is Triskelion and Mephidross Vampire. Together it's a permanent creature board wipe that basically clears the way for you to attack with you infect creatures.

2) Throne of Geth works well with old used up artifacts or with Core Prowler and Corpse Cur.

3) Forgotten Ancient is also on-colour and will ramp up your infect dudes as well. He also plays nice with Triskelion who is gross with Glistening Oil on him.

4) Infect isn't just combat damage, but any damage dealt by those creatures, so you can use Tim effects such as Hermetic Study, Psionic Gift, Thornbite Staff, and Viridian Longbow. You can also use these on creatures like Marsh Viper.

5) I second Dauthi Embrace. I remember playing back in Tempest, and shadow creatures were a pain to deal with.

6) I love using Ichor Rats with a Mimic Vat out. Either the player keeps taking hits from it, or they kill it and I imprint it on the Vat and they they are on a faster clock.

7) For evasion in any deck using black I've been using Filth and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Together everything is unblockable, and black is popular right now, so there is a pretty good chance your opponent will be using it.

sskorakz6651, I just had a thought, I noticed you don't have any artifacts, but if you were open to it, maybe think about adding Throne of Geth for it's proliferate attributes. Also, to help get mana out, you could try something like Renegade Map, although I really don't know that this deck would need that kind of assistance.

Why not toss a Decimator Web in for good measure ion place of Throne of Geth that way you can keep your artifacts

Funkydiscogod on Need suggestions for abusing Revel ...

Here's some ideas:

Disciple of the Vault and Marionette Master don't mind sacrificing treasure.

If an opponent has a poison counter, Throne of Geth can proliferate them to death. Throw in some planeswalkers for bonus points proliferating loyalty. Are there any energy cards worth proliferating?

Dovescape with Revel in Riches is almost a combo. I think Pestilence Demon would help? Or would a Enduring Ideal shell work better, since you can fetch Trove of Temptation and slowly win?

What about self-giving creatures like Sleeper Agent or Akroan Horse? They give the opponent the incentive to kill their own critter, so we don't have to waste removal on it.

Sending a Jinxed Idol to the opponent would encourage them to sacrifice their own critters to prevent the damage, but speed up the Treasure clock. Seems like it would be too casual.

Definitely needs Call the Gatewatch, and Throne of Geth can be good since it can sac itself

First thing, your deck is in standard, but you're not playing standard legal cards. I assume you meant modern? You should change it.

your deck has some really expensive cards for an infect deck. Black gets access to a few proliferate cards.

Replace Spread the Sickness with 4x Grim Affliction. You put on the counter, then proliferate, killing anything with toughness 2 or less for 3 mana. The prolif effect is cheaper, and thus faster. Since you're playing mono-black, which doesn't have access to the same type of pump, you want more prolif. Also, if one of your infect creatures gets blocked, you can prolif the counters on what they blocked. I think 99% of the time it's a better card. Replace the Phyrexian Digester and the Guardians of Meletis with Core Prowler. It's another infect creature, and if it dies, then you get to prolif. Replace the Blackcleave Goblins with 2 more Ichor Rats, since they have a better etb trigger. Replace the Dark Favor and Deviant Glee with 4x Unholy Strength. 1 for 2 on 4 cards is better than one card being 2 for 3, and 3 cards at 1 for 2. Unholy Strength is also cheaper in dollar amounts.

Finally, remove the Virulent Wound for 2x Throne of Geth (2 mana to add a poison counter), and 2x Hand of the Praetors.

Even more finally, replace Untamed Hunger with Snake Cult Initiation. Use the Snake Cult on a flier since it stacks with infect. Yeah. Okay. Make the changes and I'll help you again after.
