Primal Rage is pretty bad. Viridian Corrupter should stay in the sideboard. Larger Than Life is just bad, replace with Might of Old Krosa. Cut a forest. Play 4 Ponder, as it gives you so much more game.

Take out all 4 Necropede and Overrun from the deck and put in 3 Blossoming Defense, 3 Might of Old Krosa and Viridian Corrupter to make the list a bit more streamlined. 16 creatures for infect is high as you need to ensure a critical mass of pump spells to make sure you can push through enough damage.

Also, I don't think that Pendelhaven is very pricey anymore due to it's recent A25 reprint, so that's probably worth a slot for the 2 Tranquil Thicket.

The whole idea behind the traverse mid range infect was it could play like a bg rock deck with Thoughtseize and Fatal Push and Abrupt Decay. Then using the midrange infect creatures like Phyrexian Crusader (which can semi protect itself) + Become Immense to win in one go.

This deck may not want to go that route, since pure simic can not control the board like bg can. So traverse would be useful if you had mainboard creatures that wouldn normally be in the sideboard. Like Viridian Corrupter. And can also go get imported lands like Pendelhaven and Inkmoth Nexus.

It depends what you want to put in the main.

If you put the Spellskites in the main, then that's 2 slots with there! The Dryad Arbor should also be out of the side and the main, so that's 1 extra free slot, and then Obstinate Baloth, in my opinion, does not belong. If you're against burn, getting to turn 4 and having it in hand is a hard task to handle, and in most other games life total is (relatively) irrelevant.... I guess it's ok against Liliana of the Veil, but that's why you have the arbor in and if they don't tick down with Lili to try to kill a dude you're either already set to lose or set to win. It's awkward.

So, take out the Obstinate Baloths, the Dryad Arbor and the Spellskites (skites to main?) and then you've get 4 or 5 free slots. With those you could do 2 Shapers' Sanctuary and then more Dispel or Spell Pierce and the one extra Viridian Corrupter from the main.

I think.

Didn't super clearly put that into words. I wouldn't have the arbor in the side, you only need one for the DECK in total.

So I'd switch the maindeck Viridian Corrupter with the Dryad Arbor you have in the side. I hope that makes sense.

Wild Defiance is a decent card for the deck, but it in by no means an auto include or something that the deck really wants. The reason that so many older infect lists ran Defiance was because, at the time, Lightning Bolt was the spot removal in the format (which is where the term 'bolt test' comes from). In today's modern format, Path to Exile and Fatal Push are just better removal you have to deal with in several decks.

The one thing that I will say all infect decks still need (other than creatures and pumps) is Dryad Arbor. Arbor beats so many decks and in the worse case can be a creature after a board wipe. Several decks get aggressive with life totals against infect because it "doesn't matter" and then you pump up a dork or an arbor and kill them after they tap out, thinking they are safe with no infect creatures in play... It won't happen a ton but when it does you feel real good. Arbor also beats Liliana of the Veil, which is still very relevent with BBE jund lists. Just put it in the main, it's better their than the side.

I know that it was brought up earlier, but the deck is a different list with 4 Noble Hierarch. I can't downplay the importance of this card and that one or two points of damage that it can push through is EXTREMELY relevant in most games. That's one or two extra draw steps for your opponent, and you only have so many resources to dump into your creatures. Using a Blossoming Defense or Apostle's Blessing on your turn or end steps feels really bad since that's a card that you need to push damage through, but that Noble Hierarch over those 2 turns makes up for the spells then through her exalted trigger.

Overall this list looks fine. A few changes are...

-1 Botanical Sanctum

-2 Ichorclaw Myr

-1 Viridian Corrupter

-2 Distortion Strike

+2 Noble Hierarch

+2 Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip or Spellskite (I prefer baby Jace)

+1 Might of Old Krosa

+1 Dryad Arbor (main)

As a last note on Wild Defiance, if you want a card to try to help your creatures out more I think that Shapers' Sanctuary helps a lot. They target, you draw. You can get a replacement creature, a defensive spell, or even those spell pierces BEFORE their removal resolves and then hold priority to respond. I've had some good luck with this card lately, I think it's at least worth a thought!
