Thanks for your suggestions will definitely use Viridian Corrupter
I tried to stray from infect as my play group will be super casual and infect seems a little spiky, but one or two cards can't hurt :)
How does this deck play? Would love to know any other tips you have.

Viridian Corrupter would fit perfectly in this deck, infect with ezuri is nuts, plus its an elf that destroys an artifact! My ezuri deck isn't elf themed, but it is cheap and I've done well with it, so if you want to view it for reference: Ezuri EDH

I had actually been considering dropping Rot Wolf for the Viridian Corrupter as it seems like a more useful effect. I have never really destroyed a creature, I just want to get past them as fast as possible. It is done! Thank you!

As folks have already mentioned on r/Infect, Infect is in a really bad place in the meta at the moment. Fatal Push is everywhere, and things like Wild Defiance (which nerfed Lightning Bolt) aren't helpful. I'm also not sure it's going to get better, since I expect to see Solemnity in lots of sideboards starting in mid-July.
All that said, I absolutely love UG Infect, and still play it periodically.
I'm TOTALLY with albino_ninja too on the need for more Creatures. As is, you're going to have to mul' more than you want, and the Black decks are really going to punish you for that with their hand disruption. Creatures with Infect are best of course: Ichorclaw Myr, Necropede, Blight Mamba, and Plague Myr all have different pros and cons ... IMO you can't go wrong with any of them. And maybe 1x Viridian Corrupter too. Another option I've seen some folks use: Sylvan Scrying, which basically acts like extra Inkmoths.
One more thought on Creatures: Because of all our pump spells, I'm always amazed at how often the deck can win with normal damage. So it might be worth looking at something like Invisible Stalker or Thrummingbird too.
Finding room for those Creatures is of course tough. I'm not a huge fan of Groundswell for this deck (it's much better with Fetchlands), so that's a place you can maybe find room. And while I REALLY like having 3 counterspells in the 75, I usually only run one in the main. You may also find you can put some of your protection in the side ... I know we need a TON in the current meta, but you may not actually have enough mana to use it. :-)
Some potential sideboard thoughts:
- Artifact/Enchantment hate: Lots of folks like Nature's Claim but I prefer Seal of Primordium, since you can use it to kill a Chalice of the Void when X=1. This is also a good place for Viridian Corrupter.
- Graveyard Hate: Crook of Comdemnation (recently spoiled for HOU)
- Removal: Dismember or Beast Within (neither is super-cheap, but they're both great IMO)
- Those extra counterspells :-)
- A Wall or some Lifegain (i.e., a budget version of Kitchen Finks): Jaddi Offshoot
- Maybe some Recursion: Noxious Revival
Sorry for the wall of text, and thanks for reading this far!

Distortion Strike is a great card. It comes back next turn and pumps at the same time. An awesome 3 drop is 4x Viridian Corrupter and there are a lot of artifacts to hate on. Apostle's Blessing can provide protection or make someone unblockable. I agree that you need the Vines and Defense. I play regular infect and those cards save you. Ichorclaw Myr can perform great when blocking by giving -1/-1s like candy. If they don't block, it's free poison counters

added Hell's Caretaker. With snakes available to sacrifice this will allow me to pull from graveyard and get creatures for added ETB eccects (the minus counters in particular) Added Gray Merchant of Asphodel. This can owrk nice for late game garnering some nice life in a multiplayer format as well as pose a threat from graveyard with Hell's Caretaker pulling him back in for a snake. Thornbite Staff on the caretaker can lead to a loop. Added Rendclaw Trow more snakes. Added Incremental Blight ,Cinderbones and Viridian Corrupter again the more wither I get out there the better and less reluctant an enemy to attack as I can get snakes and insects out of it.
