Yavimaya Coast Discussion

Yeah, Gitaxian Probe did a lot. Phyrexian mana really put it over the top. If you really want to keep the effect, Peek is an option. At this point I'm not sure it's worth a mana especially when you have the option to hold up a protection spell or combo off with that extra mana. I definitely wouldn't play Mishra's Bauble. I would say free cantrips aren't worth the card if they don't do anything useful and Bauble only lets you see the top of their deck when ultimately you'd use it when you're about to go off, hopefully on turn 2 or 3.
You can also shave off a land or two if you wanted. I don't play with the Yavimaya Coasts. Instead I run a mainboard Dryad Arbor just for something extra to fetch for if it comes to that. I can't tell you how many times I've killed people with regular damage with a pumped up Dryad Arbor. Not my first choice, but when they see infect, they automatically fetch and shock their life total away. They deal with the infect creatures and forget about their life total.

Duress should be mained. It hits everything you need it to, and your removal spells can kill the creatures. Hexproof creatures are not a very common sight.
Disdainful Stroke as a 2 of, putting Disallow down to 3. I also agree on the sheer power of the stroke. Grasp of Darkness and Reality Shift for mainboard removal. Reality shift allows you to run Invasive Species. Perilous Vault might be interesting for you, as you need something to kill copters, harvesters and ensouled Darksteel Citadels. I would mainboard 2 Flaying Tendrils and 2 Yahenni's Expertise.
You've kind of screwed yourself over in sultai though, as it is one of the weakest colours right now.
Expensive cards: Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet.
To compare: this is my control deck: A Birth of Darkness

Hello! I appreciate the effort put in to make a cheap Infect deck. Just a couple things I see wrong here:
Why aren't you running Become Immense? Infect has enough spells to delve away to it that it's worth the slot in the mainboard.
What's up with Thornweald Archer in the sideboard? and Tower Defense? why not have 4 copies of Plummet in the sideboard and a couple Natural State's, and when you get the money, Grafdigger's Cage? Thornweald Archer still won't kill indestructible creatures, and neither will Plummet, except Plummet doesn't have to wait for the flier to attack.
What's Whispersilk Cloak doing? In my opinion, it's far too clunky for modern or just for infect in general. You have to wait until turn 3 to cast it, then wait until turn 4 to equip it just to give your guy shroud and unblockable. I definitely see the appeal, but it could be better replaced by something like Surgical Extraction (when you get money), Dismember for certain matchups and seeing as you have no removal. If you have an extra creature or two, even Paradise Mantle would be good. Really, you'll need more removal and counters in the sideboard if you want to have good matchups.
Hope this helps!

Being a purveyor of Simic Bogles myself, I have a few suggestions for you.
First, try adding a little more power and toughness to your creature. An effective option for me is Unstable Mutation. If you like instant speed pump spells better, Might of Old Krosa & Groundswell are decent choices. The way I add massive power& toughness to my Bogles is by running more land so that I can play Auramancer's Guise (which basically ends the game when played if you're running the right build for it).
Second, you need a bit more card advantage, and in a quicker, more lightweight form than the Snake Umbras that you have in the deck now. Might I suggest Curiosity or Keen Sense? & by the way, 2 Aqueous Form mainboard is good, and probably also the right number to run mainboard; having an extra one in the sideboard is useful though.
Third, having enough targets for your auras. I don't mean to rub it in, but you saw the earlier comments, and I agree that you could benefit from a couple or a few Silhana Ledgewalkers. Also an honorable mention for a bigger creature to include is Witchstalker; just in case you find Silhana Ledgewalker to be a bit lackluster when compared with Invisible Stalker.
Fourth, having a proper land base. You don't have to go all out like I have with fetches and shocks, but nevertheless a land upgrade would greatly benefit you. Hinterland Harbor is a great choice, but for your build - Since you're running Yavimaya Coasts - I would say that Botanical Sanctum is likely the better choice. Personally, I'd recommend replacing the temples with the check lands and the pain lands with the fast lands.
Best of luck with your improvements...
P.S. I thought about running the man lands - Specifically the Treetop Village & the Faerie Conclave. Ultimately, I think that they just slow the deck down and are inifeective since they aren't hexproof.
P.P.S. Surgical Extraction is great to have in the sideboard if your oppent is running board wipes.

Great start, and welcome to the format!. I do want to quickly add that progenitus isn't legal because your commander has a blue/green color identity. Since progenitus has all 5 colors of mana, you could only play it in a 5 color deck. As for cards to add I'd look into a few ways to manipulate the top of your library like Brainstorm, Soothsaying, Sensei's Divining Top, Sylvan Library, Scroll Rack, Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, Noxious Revival, Thassa, God of the Sea etc. This allows you to make sure that the top of your library is a good card and that you are able to cast it for free. There are also ways to make sure you know what the top of your library is at all times like Future Sight and Magus of the Future. One thing your deck doesnt have alot of is card draw. Late game you might start to run low on cards in hand and while your commander does help, i might add a few ways to restock like Rhystic Study(I find a lot of people just ignore this and let you draw cards early game), Mulldrifter etc. I'd also look at your mana base a bit. Here are a few lands i would think about adding: Command Tower(taps for both blue and green in your deck), Temple of Mystery, Hinterland Harbor, Breeding Pool, Misty Rainforest, Yavimaya Coast, Lumbering Falls, Simic Growth Chamber, Botanical Sanctum. As for making cuts here are a few cards in your deck i think could be replaced and why: Stream of Life(you don't have any life gain synergy and this card takes your whole turn. If the reason you are at low life is is because you are getting beaten down by creatures all this does is buy some time rather than solve the problem. Omniscience( don't get me wrong this is a very strong card but unlike legacy decks that run this, you cant cheat it into play easily, you would probably be casting it. Once you have that much mana, you should already be able to empty your hand pretty easily without needing them to be free.) Sorry this comment ended being longer than i anticipated but I hope this helps!

Yavimaya Coast would be perfect for the deck! thanks for the suggestion
