U/W infect/control I dont play a whole lot of modern, so I was looking for input on this deck. Any help would be appreciated! Having trouble linking the deck. Can anyone help me out?

the comment tutorial explains pretty thoroughly how to link a deck. infect always includes green, and you don't want to mix control and infect. their playstyles are polar opposites.

to read up on current popular modern decks, simply google "modern metagame" and the first result should be "mtggoldfish". it'll have decklists of the current top modern decks.

Appreciate the help. That was kind of the point though, was to throw people off with an unusual deck and lock them down While getting infect through.

most infect creatures are really small, and have to be pumped with spells in order to deal damage efficiently. without pump spells, most creatures with infect are so small that its actually faster to use a big creature that doesn't have infect.

Tempo seems to be where you want to go with infect and control.

Tempo means speeding yourself up and slowing the opponent down so you have an advantage.

Since you're just trying to reach 10 poison counters, not 20 life, run with it, lean into the aggro. I think going into 3 colors to solidify the green infect bit and keep the ability to add Teferi, Time Bender would be really cool.

If you want fun and different, go for it, but make sure you learn the lessons from the existing decks and build upon them!

keevel yeah, kind of what it seems like this deck is missing, is green but just figured three colors is kind of tough in modern and was trying to mix it up a little on the run of the mill infect decks.
