The infection is spreading...

Modern Budget



Creature (3)


Quickly get out a Phyrexian Crusader, Ichorclaw Myr , or a Plague Stinger on turn one with a Dark Ritual. Then pump up the infect with Vampire's Bite or Virulent Swipe for some quick and nasty poison!

I think this deck is very strong early game, and it can continue to be strong late game as well. Lashwrithe helps to keep my phyrexian crusaders large while Plague Stinger rain poison from above. At the moment the goal is to do as much damage as possible before your opponent has time to react! A turn two Phyrexian Crusader with a Vampire's Bite or Virulent Swipe is a sure way to speed things up and strike fear into your opponent!

+1's and any advice is much appreciated!

Thanks for the +1! That's a good point. I had the Doom Blade for any artifacts, but I could swap them out for more Go for the Throat . Then leave the Doom Blade in my side board.

Murder might be a better idea. I like the two drop Doom Blade , but one more couldn't hurt. I'll give it a try! Thanks for the input!

Try with Hatred , you know, when someone decides not to block and you don't mind to lose some life

Seems a little costly at five mana, but at that point in the game it'll be a nice finisher. Thanks for the suggestion!

How about some Unmake instead of Murder ?

That's not a bad idea. Takes care of any indestructible cards and for the same cost. Good find! Thanks for your input!
