A couple quick updates on Serious Infection:
- I tweaked the deck around, so I'm down to 70 of 75 cards again (I was at 71 for a brief period). Soooooo close!
- I wanted to mention the biggest change though: I'm now running 2x Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip in the main, and the early results have been super-promising. So far, I've gone 7-2 in casual (proxied) play vs. BR Griselbrand (2-1), Sultai Control (2-0), UW Control (2-1), Mono-G Elves (0-2), Mono-U Tron (0-2), BR Aggro (2-1), UG Infect (2-1), UG Elves (2-0), and UR Mill (2-0). I've no idea yet if Jace is The Real Deal, but IMO he's definitely worth a hard look.
As always, draw well!

You made a mistake by mentioning the wrong Felidar in your description by the way. Looks good anyways.

I like your addition of Westvale Abbey Flip, I don't know why I never thought of trying that myself. Currently I was trying out a foil Decimator of the Provinces over my former foil Emrakul, the Promised End.
Here is my deck anyways if you want to give it a look.

Here is a useful website I often refer to for commander decks, you should give this a look.

Only had 10 players at the first gameday and 8 later that day at my lgs for the second. I came I think it was 5th the first time and then the second time I in fact placed first with my B/G delirium deck. Now I chose not to do anything like Winding Constrictor and all of that as I wasn't going to stop playing my Liliana, the Last Hopes, Grim Flayers and Ishkanah, Grafwidows mainboard. The only changes I made were the addition of 1 Verdurous Gearhulk over a Noxious Gearhulk, added in a couple of Fatal Push's too, and instead of my foil Emrakul, the Promised End I went with a foil Decimator of the Provinces which I usually emerge cast off of an Ishkanah, Grafwidow.

But yeah when do spoilers begin anyways is it 1-2 weeks or so?
February 14, 2017 9:44 a.m.
I actually want one of those, but I never bought it as I find it slightly costly.

Also because of the fact that it was only reprinted in 1/5 of the new commander 2016 decks I think might be a partial reason.

Got first at a gameday! Now I also earned store credit to buy myself another Windswept Heath for infect! Played my original g/b delirium except with a foil Decimator of the Provinces and now some Fatal Push's.
February 11, 2017 9:48 p.m.
Interesting choice, I hadn't ever thought of using Jace for this. He's kind of expensive again however and I don't happen to own any.

No Aether Hub? I ran four in my former mono black Eldrazi deck.
For your sideboard I would suggest an Ob Nixilis Reignited, 1-2 Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, and 1-2 Lost Legacy. Perhaps cut back on your Ruinous Paths in the mainboard to make room for Spatial Contortion. You could make it instead 3 paths and 1 contortion, or a split between 2 each, with an additional path in the sideboard?
Most of your removal doesn't help with getting things exiled, and so again here is where Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet may be of use possibly even mainboard? Otherwise Wasteland Strangler that you were considering might not be even worth it, if you might sometimes struggle to have enough to process.
But yeah this looks like a good start.

Yeah I suppose, my version was a lot more of a midrange, controlling deck, that would win mostly in the mid to late game. Well anyways, I have one other suggestion for your deck then.
A card I always made use of in my mono black eldrazi deck was Mirrorpool. Now I only used two of these as you don't want many of these, as they enter tapped of course. But these provide for some interesting plays, one of my favourites was to copy a Reality Smasher or Thought-Knot Seer if I had nothing better/little else to do. I would replace 1-2 Blighted Cataract with these if you want to go ahead and use them. This card is sadly largely forgotten, although that also means they are quite cheap.
Well anyways best of luck with your gameday! I myself will be going to two of them Saturday, with my B/G delirium deck that I happen to have.

You should be using Shrine of the Forsaken Gods for this! I find that land awesome. I use to play a deck like this, with the only major difference being that mine was instead mono black for tons of exile, sacrifice and hand discard effects from Bearer of Silence, Transgress the Mind, Blighted Fen, Wasteland Strangler, etc. I even played a Kozilek, the Great Distortion, Oblivion Sowers and a Void Winnower. It was a really fun deck while it lasted but I chose to dismantle it like 2 months ago.

Strangely enough here has been my encounters with opening masterpieces/expeditions.
Like 2 1/2 years ago when I still was fairly new to magic I had my brother buy me 2 BFZ packs as a gift during the holidays and the second one turned out to be a Windswept Heath. I regret later when I knew its value selling it for some cards such as a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Omnath, Locus of Mana, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Spawnsire of Ulamog, etc, which turned out to be a bad idea as me and several other friends only played casually and never was at first aware of formats such as Edh,standard and modern. Later when we became aware of standard, and modern I couldn't in fact use some of these cards either because they weren't all that viable or legal. Now I only have kept the Praetor's and sold the rest.
Then during Oath of the Gatewatch, I attended a Fnm where we did something a bit different for a draft. We did a "whacky draft" where everyone would get 3 standard legal packs, back when DTK was still around. It was absurd what I opened, first BFZ pack was a Prairie Stream expedition, followed by a Fetid Heath in the Gatewatch pack! My third DTK pack still turned out to be an Atarka's Command too. I should have kept these maybe for commander, but I traded them for a bunch of standard stuff which nearly all of it has gone down in value. Wish I had these still for my Atraxa Edh deck that I now have.
Next I got a Sword of Feast and Famine at my third Kaladesh prerelease of a day and as well as two other mythics (Noxious Gearhulk and a Metallurgic Summonings)in my other packs, with that I rather easily went 4-0!
As you can see, all of these have not been from booster boxes. I bought my first box from Oath of the Gatewatch, and my second with aether revolt and so far I have had no luck with opening another, so it's not worth buying one just in the hopes of getting one of those at all. I still want my masterpiece Wurmcoil Engine however :(

I use to have a deck like this, I placed 3rd at a Kaladesh gameday with this list here.

I was 4-0, until I went and kept a terrible, risky hand against a R/W vehicles deck that consisted of a swamp, 2 Grasp of Darkness, a Complete Disregard, and some other Eldrazi. It was miserable I didn't draw a second land even after 5 turns and so I so after was killed. Game 2 was unfortunately not much different even after I sideboarded in some useful things, which I never even got to draw. I this time just got land screwed despite taking a slightly better hand...
I'm sure by making some more changes this could be made much better now however. As you can see, this deck had several obvious elements for dealing with Aetherworks Marvel decks with Emrakul, the Promised End. I would start by taking out the larger Eldrazi as aggro decks are a pain, so some smaller creatures like Scrapheap Scrounger would be better. Then take out Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Noxious Gearhulk probably. I never for that deck had access to Fatal Push and so you will want that for sure.
Well anyways I hope this helps.
