BodhiQL on infect day 2 GPOKC

Seems pretty good to me. I hope your paper deck is fully foiled out lol. How is Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip working out for you in a competitive scene? For me he seemed a bit slow and kinda clunky, but I'd love to hear your opinion. Also, I don't like Ceremonious Rejection in the side. It doesn't really work against Eldrazi decks because they run Cavern of Souls, and while it's okay against Affinity and Tron, I think Spell Pierce is better, and against Affinity just artifact destruction is more efficient. Also, you may want to consider Shapers' Sanctuary instead of Wild Defiance. I cannot stress enough how good that card is. If you'd like, here is my list-

in my infect deck I run I have a full playset of Mutagenic Growth and like it. being able to pump creatures without mana is very useful in trying to rush them down. you could also try out one copy of Wild Defiance and see how that works out for you. good luck with it!

Apostle's Blessing allows to protect your creature also allows to punch damage through sometimes as well. Kitchen Finks is good if you going long game. Spellskite can also buy you sometime as well. I've also been debating on adding Wild Defiance back in the main board I currently run 1 in the sideboard. Grafdigger's Cage helps battle storm which seeing alot of play lately.

Basic islands are worthless here. In modern the biggest part of the buy-in is getting fetch lands and shock lands, but once you have them, they'll be in most of your decks. You may also want to invest in 4 Noble Hierarch and a set of Inkmoth Nexus. As for your spells, for draw power I'm more a fan of Slip Through Space or Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip myself. You should side out your dispels and instead get 2 Dismember. 4 vines, 4 krosa. 4 groundswell, 4 mutagenic, 3-4 blossoming, 1-2 apostle's, 2-3 become immense, a slip or distortion strike, 2 spell pierce and dismember, and maybe a twisted image or piracy charm if you feel like experimenting. That's more or less your engine. That and little buffs from Hierarch or Pendelhaven. As the meta shifts you can experiment with Spellskite, Viridian Corrupter, and Wild Defiance.

Wish you the best of luck. Infect went from best deck in modern to fringe competitive when we lost probe.

Some cheap cards I can think of off the top of my head that might be worth getting for this deck would be Arcanum Wings, Wild Defiance, Mask of Avacyn, Jhessian Infiltrator, Troll Ascetic and of course Slippery Bogle. Sigil of Sleep also pairs well with Invisible Stalker.

You have a good creature list, but I would think about replacing some of the spells. Keep in mind you may or may not need some draw effects. I'd like to suggest moving Wild Defiance to your sideboard and putting in one or two Contagion Clasp tops (I think any more would be unnecessary). Vines of Vastwood was a great call! Didn't know it existed. Lastly I would take out the Mutagenic Growth for a full play set of Inquisition of Kozilek. IoK is a great disrupt card for anything black.

I'll admit that it has felt... awkward... at times during my initial playtesting of it. Sometimes it works like a dream, but when it does I can't help but wonder if I would have won just as quickly without it. I'd never use it in a regular aggro deck of course, but with the pressure of Infect it just seems better suited - in theory, at least.

FWIW, I've put together the equipment-less version of the deck that I was considering as well: The Green Sting III. Bouncing back and forth between including the two Life's Legacy, a couple of Wild Defiance or going back to a pair of Livewire Lash.
