I'll hook you up with some positive constructive feedback. I like the infect mechanic and I think infect can be a quick threat for your opponent, but I think you have too few creatures (I usually see control decks with about 12 creatures max where aggro decks need 20+. Is there a reasoning why you have Llanowar Elves ? I know they help you ramp up, but your curve ends at 4 and since Primal Bellow is based on land, you're better off with Rampant Growth for the mana boost. Trample is definitely the way to go for infect and I think Rancor would be a major addition to your deck. Wild Defiance is definitely helpful in this deck, but I don't think you need 4. Maybe you can get away with 2-3. For your Carrion Call question, yes I would remove it for more creatures. The problem I see with infect decks is they get chump blocked and stalled into a late game (again trample would help remedy this). If you want to stay on a low curve, you can try a couple Champion of Lambholt to get your infect guys through or even a Bellowing Tanglewurm for the same concept and a semi bomb. For more ramp, I would even consider Primeval Titan . Since infect might rotate out, I would shoot for some Overrun before it all goes away (I don't think they'll bring it back because there's a few new mechanical spoilers like scavenge, overload, and populate).

thank you soo much for the feedback. so i have taken out Carrion Call and added the Rancor and for a few more creatures i added Putrefax although its a little expensive for my mana curve. also reduced the number of Ring of Kalonia and Wild Defiance how do you think it plays now?

I looked more into infect decks. I think this link will help you fine tune your deck to people that have played with it in tourneys. Good luck. http://www.mtgtop8.com/archetype?a=157&meta=52

Nice and fast! Did 2 play tests (against no opponent) and both were over by T5. As mentioned earlier, I'd love to see a Champion of Lambholt in here to get around chump blockers. I love/hate Cathedral of War ; I only run 1 in my exalted deck, which is great for early damage, but often at the expense of speed. I'd trim back maybe 2 Cathedrals for Forests instead, Primal Bellow will thank you.
