Pump spells and Removal (1)

A bad day is when you enter the arena, with an infectious Phyrexian Obliterator!

         Enter the arena. Behold blessed perfection.

An H.R. Giger inspired deck I put together to get a sneaky infect win from Phyrexian Obliterator!

When you draw you should have at least 2-3 lands in hand, bonus if that land is a Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth (easier to get Phyrexian Obliterator out on turn 4).

Unlike most infect landbase, ours is different and makes sure our tempo works. i've placed Mana Confluence in to help with getting Glistener Elf out on turn 1 in conjunction with Overgrown Tomb and Breeding Pool, Watery Grave gets our Blighted Agent out, while Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth helps us get Phyrexian Obliterator out turn 4. Four copies of Inkmoth Nexus helps us retain board presence through a wipe, and lets us get that final bit of infect on our opponent.
Glistener Elf is our turn 1 threat, he comes in so we can start the engine early. and late game he can get that one last bit of infect, Plague Stinger and Blighted Agent will be evasive threats and our way of getting in some infect without the worry of being blocked by things without flying, they can also be pumped for more dammage, finally our masterpiece Phyrexian Obliterator, this perfect being can almost always win us the game, whither you want to give him infect (Tainted Strike), or pump to hit face (in case of rare answers for infect), he can do it all.
Mutagenic Growth, and Vines of Vastwood will both work to pump your small infectors to scary proportions, along with Blossoming Defense in case your opponent has removal, and Virulent Swipe to pump, or cause an unfair trade against your opponent, also rebounds for more pump on the next turn. This becomes easier to do once you know what your opponent has in their hand with Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize, Virulent Swipe will act as removal and give our creatures infect, I threw Dismember for removal that hits indestructible, and as long as you have Phyrexian Obliterator out, you can win the game with a surprise Tainted Strike!
for the sideboard, Apostle's Blessing comes in handy when your opponent has too much removal for things like Phyrexian Obliterator, Seal of Primordium if you find yourself against a dreaded Blood Moon, Leyline of the Void and Relic of Progenitus might as well say R.I.P graveyard decks, Nature's Claim is good enchantment hate, and if you are having problems with your opponent finding answers to your obliterator, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon is your next best bet, lastly Life Goes On so you can stay a threat before burn can get a hold of you.

Hit fast, hit hard, make their cheeks pucker with Obliterator

H.R. Giger would be proud.


I've had great success with this deck in the past couple of weeks, it has enough control to extend the game long enough, and sees consistent wins around turn 5-6. This has been my favorite deck I've made in all my years of magic
