This deck aims for quick poison counters to end a game in just a few turns.
I originally built this deck out of the cards that I own, but I am now trying to refine the deck.
This deck was originally G/B, but I just recently changed it to G/U which seems much more efficient.
Suggestions and critiques are appreciated.
Removed the 4 spells that sent the creature back to the hand and counter target spell with Mana Leak.
Thanks to everyone that has helped me get my Pump Infect deck built. It's format is now labeled as Modern.
I will keep you posted as I have matches and will now post any updates that I may see necessary here.
Doom Blade and Go for the Throat are nice. Mixing them with a few Dismembers makes some really handy creature removal and does the whole -/- thing. Not permanent, sure. but you can easily drop a dragon or a infected titan with that card.

Too many cards. You'll never draw what you want. 60 - 65 is a good number to be around.

Concentrate on pumping your infect a little more. Legacy gives you a lot of options. Giant Growth , Might of Oaks , Groundswell . Inkmoth Nexus is always nice albeit pricey. I went with blue for my legacy deck. This allowed me to exploit the unblockable ability of the Blighted Agent . Once it got through, with the right hand, I was able to deliver 10 infect damage by turn 3. Really look through some of the older cards to utilize the legacy format. keep going though. It's well on it's way.

I agree that you should be focusing on pump. Considering the speed you'll need, mana curve will be an issue and Phyrexian mana eliminates the need of a large amount of mana for pumping. Take a peek at my solution that's been pretty speedy: He Put His Disease In Me

Nice. I've been playtesting it and this is pretty nasty. +1

Just so you know, this deck qualifies for modern legality. I would highly recommend changing the format type to modern instead... Modern features a more limited array of card sets and you will probably enjoy even more success with this deck there than in legacy, where you will regularly go up against broken, soul-crushing combos.
Also, nice pump infect deck. There is actually a hub called "pump infect" which you can add so that your deck will help get cycled through the site better. +1

If you're going for really quick wins throw 4 Mutagenic Growth s into the deck. I've played a similar deck and found that the option to pay 2 life instead of the mana cost is very useful. And, of course, there's nothing quite like playing 4 of them and a Giant Growth on a Glistener Elf turn two for a win, especially if your opponent went second.
Good deck though +1

Gives a bit of pump as well as targeted unblockable, The only problem is that the rebound ability happens at upkeep, so unless you already have a Wild Defiance out you can't take advantage of it, At least with Artful Dodge you can save it till you have a Wild Defiance out.
I'd also consider a Livewire Lash , its a pump-infect staple.

I know they're pricey, but a playset of Breeding Pool 's would really help out your mana issues.

I am going for the same approach with my deck, check it out - Feelin' Sick
Gotta keep the cost down.

I made a few small modifications. I think it will work even better now.

Running 4 Misty Rainforest and a single Breeding Pool would allow you to get away with running 2, maybe even 1 island, Hinterland Harbor is great, but with running fetches they aren't really necessary, you don't really ever need more than 1 blue mana in a game. Just a thought to increase consistency.

What about Rancor or Groundswell over Invigorate to make this Modern legal? I know Invigorate is an awesome card, however I think this deck would do much better in the modern playground than against Show and Tell and the like.
