Suggestions on swaps

Commander Deck Help forum

I've been working on an infect deck Anaplasmosis. Looking through my maybe board; there are quite a few cards I'd like to swap in. The trick is figuring out which ones to include and which ones to cut....if at all. I'd like to potentially add Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Decimator Web, Blightsteel Colossus, and Phyrexian Obliterator. Some of these may be bad adds...heck I might be better off just leaving things as they are. Anyway, I was hoping you guys could check out the decklist and help me out a bit.

Considering it's a 4-color deck, I don't think it's realistic to think you could consistently cast Phyrexian Obliterator. Relying on Chromatic Lantern to be able to cast it just isn't good imo.

As for what to take out...I'm not a huge fan of Black Market, as I feel it would be too hard to get value from it. Also, Contagion Engine seems like a strict upgrade to Core Prowler. Other than that, I would probably just take out some of the weaker infect creatures if you wanted to add other cards.

Black Market fits the meta of my playgroup. We have two guys that play lots and lots of tokens ie Prossh, Skyraider of Kher. but for the sake of generality It's not a bad drop. I've been on the fence about Core Prowler and I think you are absolutely right

Master of Cruelties is fun AF for sure but it doesn't has synergy with your Commander or the infect theme. You could replace it with Blightsteel Colossus which IS a player kill if it hits them in the face or even 2 with your commander

Gotcha, if Black Market is a meta call then by all means.

I've always been a big fan of Hatred.
