- 2x Apostle's Blessing
- 3x Groundswell
- 3x Mutagenic Growth
- 2x Ranger's Guile
- 2x Seal of Strength
- 4x Vines of Vastwood
- Won vs. Affinity x3
- Won vs. Mirror
- Lost vs. Turbo Fog
- Lost vs. Mirror
- First three games were against Affinity. Infect is just too fast.
- Both mirrors vs. Same guy. Crushed him first game.
- Over an hour just to play the first game. I conceded the match. I literally pressed "OK" repeatedly for an hour. I was over it.
- Misplayed both matches. Was the last game I could play so I rushed it and Fuct up. Both times I had it in my hand I was just careless. Never half ass any two things. Always whole ass one thing.
On MTGO I do not yet have Lotus Petal, Gitaxian Probe, or Land Grant. Without those cards the deck is $10. I currently filled out Groundswell and Mutagenic Growth, and am running 14 Forest plus the Tranquil Thicket and Khalni Garden.

After reviewing the turbo fog matchup I have concluded it would be wise to add either Tormod's Crypt or Relic of Progenitus to the sideboard. Either card would have killed my opponent's graveyard and stopped them from repeatable fog effects.

My recent ideas lead me to some adjustments as so:
-3 Gut Shot - its a good card, I just need room for grave hate.
-1 Apostle's Blessing - I may regret this but Avon, need the room.
Sideboard changes for meta:

Awesome Deck!!! and super detailed description!!!
Quick question what does primer mean in your deck tile???

How often do you have to mulligan? That land base seems really risky.
January 15, 2017 11:22 p.m.
@ ParkourTV Its not uncommon for me to take a mulligan to 5, and yes it is risky, however; you only need 2 mana sources for this decks function to take purpose, and if you top deck a land when you need a pump your screwed. The fewer lands the better your odds of grabbing pumps. Plus with Gitaxian Probe, the cycle on Tranquil Thicket, and Land Grant (as stated in the primer) you really have enough cantrips and fetch to keep your mana sources flowing. Also with cycling and probing and using land grant you thin the deck substantially increasing odds further to draw a pump.
Imo... Let me say that again... in my opinion only... I'm not afraid to mul down to 5 with this deck and even 4 on the draw. Mulligans are taboo and idk why. I mean i get it but a 5 card hand that can net a wincon by T2 is better than a 7 card hand of trash yes? (:
Also I'm kind of a big or go home type of person. You're really either all in or all out with infect.
Thanks for commenting!

@ Memo617 a primer is a sort of "information tutorial" about your deck. It explains what cards you chose and why you chose them, as well as whatever other personalization you want to put into it.

Awesome! I've been playing pauper infect for a while and just revisited it to pull in Gitaxian Probe (now that it's not $5 online) and saw your write-up and it's awesome! Your build is pretty tight, but one of the cards I had in my pauper version was Viridescent Wisps. Not much of a pump, but the card draw was nice. I was experimenting with mainboarding it vs. Ranger's Guile. Great job! Thanks for the write-up!

And ty for the kind words. I'm glad you like the primer! I hope it helped.
Did you find the secret song?
January 16, 2017 8:13 p.m.
I did! I had to find it on youtube since I didn't get it right away (started playing MTG after that came out)

Upvote for considering Lotus Petal in the deck!
The biggest problem I see is even though you're likely to get one mana on turn 1, getting more lands out maybe somewhat problematical. Land Grant doesn't exactly replace a land, so I can see getting mana screwed being a problem. I haven't actually played the deck, it just seems like it to me.
