Deck works around getting heavy hitters out early without penalties using Torpor Orb then scaling up the threats with +1/+0 and infect early using Phyresis or Tainted Strike to kill in as few turns as possible.


There is a potential turn 2 win by:

Turn 1: Swamp > Dark Ritual > Torpor Orb > Phyrexian Dreadnought

Turn 2: Phyresis or Tainted Strike on Phyrexian Dreadnought


Updates Add

Added Apostle's Blessing to sure up the deck.

I don't feel it has had a detrimental effect on any of the key cards in the deck
