Creature — Specter
Flying Infect Whenever Whispering Specter deals combat damage to a player, you may sacrifice it. If you do, that player discards a card for each poison counter he or she has.

unfortunately the cheapest casting cost Specter in modern is 3 mana.
BUT there are a couple good ones to chose from in that 3 Mana range. you already have the Hippy, and Lili. but there are also Needle Specter and Nightveil Specter though that last one is a bit iffy, it could be fun though. there are two others in the 3 mana range but one is 3 colors Red, Black, Blue... Sedraxis Specter. the other one uses Infect Whispering Specter i personally dislike Infect, but it is a kinda nifty thing it uses infect for.
also (just as a side note) if you can keep your Specters in the 3 to 4 mana range (for the most part) you might want to add in (if you can) a couple Aether Vial that is if you already have a couple, they are a bit expensive so... but those could be good replacements for your Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual they are not needed, just a thought if you have them, and if you dont maybe keep an eye out for a couple in trade.

You are right, I have been told, it's too slow. I have Knights as my main plan, and the combos are for if I can find them. The Whispering Specters are just for flying protection, and the Aryel, Knight of Windgrace and Anointed Procession are for putting out knights for beefing. Win cons are achieved via combos or the knights being too big for them to handle. Thank you though. I am cutting Aryel to one, and maybe Anointed Procession, but I haven't decided yet.

I think the deck is far too slow, even for casual. It's a cool idea but it has too many pieces and won't work. I'd cut the Aryel, Knight of Windgraces, Whispering Specters, and the Anointed Processions.

deck looks good and budget! just some ideas to help get by some front lines could add, Rogue's Passage , Whispersilk Cloak just for an easy way to get by. i play against a lot of mass token decks so i find these help me set up some combos.
Glissa, the Traitor is a good add if you have trouble keeping all your artifacts up.
Triumph of the Hordes has been a game ender for me since the amount of poison you can get off in a single turn. plus if you have Contagion Engine & Contagion Clasp. Phyrexian Swarmlord is a high cost but does have the chance to refill your board if your wiped out (:

It has been a long ass time since I've played MTG and tried to be competitive, but back when I WAS one of the top 10 members of Tappedout, I played a lot of infect. A lot. So I can hopefully give some useful feedback.
Sideboard: Cut Flensermite, Phyrexian Swarmlord, and Whispering Specter. Swarmlord is tempting to include but in reality, it's a win-more card and ranges from moderately to very effective only when you're going to win anyways.
Mainboard: Any competitive infect deck needs 4 Phyrexian Crusader. It's such a good card. You may also want to consider another Inkmoth Nexus budget permitting. Also you want 4x Vines of Vastwood for protecting your stuff.
I don't think you need more than 4 hand search vehicles (Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize). Granted it almost never hurts to have more, but drawing one late game when you want a pump spell is an awful feeling that I've experienced personally. Of course, you'd want 4x Thoughtseize, but again budget permitting.
I'm also personally of the opinion that an infect deck does not need kill spells in it. Pump spells (like your sideboarded Become Immense) pretty much act like a kill spell if your creature gets blocked. If they don't block, your creature skates through and deals massive poison counters. A key to remember is that a pump spell draw late game wins you the game with an infect deck(especially with Rancor), and a kill spell does nothing to advance their poison counters. Inquisition or Thoughtsieze should allow you to get rid of any creature you don't like/can't deal with anyways, so that's why I think kill spells are moot.
Pen-ultimately, Livewire Lash was a card I used back in standard. It may be too slow now for Modern, but it's a way to deal poison counters without having to attack your opponent. Just pump and deal damage.
Lastly, if you are keeping your mana curve topping out at 3, you may want to also consider dropping to 21 land. It can be risky, but I would play test it anyways.
Hopefully this helps you somehow or can give you a bit of inspiration. I noticed you have a mill deck and I'll check that one too as I really want to make my current mill deck better.

Deck looks excellent and a blast to play. Only thing i would change is just shuffling from side to main. I would take out one of your pumps (I would do Groundswell but its your call) to get the second Fatal Push in, and I would swap 1xPhyrexian Crusader and 1xPlague Stinger for your two Whispering Specter. Looks fast and nasty, glad its working out for ya!

Squirrel_of_War: Thought about including Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon already, but was unsure about the relatively high CMC. Gonna replace Whispering Specter with Skithiryx, since i've already got the card. Any idea about what to throw out for Silhana Ledgewalker?
thanks for the suggestions :)
