Vimozahr on Atraxa Infect

Hi firesparker, Infect is more difficult in Multiplayer Games. I played a Atraxa Build with Infect for 2 Mounths. Your biggest Problem are your Opponents and there know what you play.

I try to give your my suggestion.

Play more Creatures for Utility like Odric, Lunarch Marshal / Shalai, Voice of Plenty maybe its help when he enable flying/hexproof each other Creature and you.

Craterhoof Behemoth Value Finisher if you had this Budget.

Grafted Exoskeleton also good, but expensive (CMC)

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Must have.

Spike Weaver & Teferi's Protection good for your Protection.

Mostly important is your Manabase and Mana-Rocks.

You will play fast as possible. Cut Lands that enters tapped.

Use Rocks like Fellwar Stone , Arcane Signet also Creatures like Birds of Paradise , or Utopia Sprawl

Play Atraxa just you can protect her. Abuse her Lifelink every Combat and cut Cards like Fog ...

Your opponents do not want to attack you if Atraxa is online -> Deathtouch.

Cards like Spark Double or Altered Ego can be very good. Copy Atraxa for Poliferate or an Infect Creature.

You need Zendikar Resurgent ? I think no, also replace it with Mirari's Wake but its better to take more Ramp with Rocks.

Maybe you need more Carddraw, Topdeck-Control:

Brainstorm > Ponder

Consecrated Sphinx

Phyrexian Arena

Rhystic Study

Sensei's Divining Top

Sylvan Library

Windfall

Mirri's Guile

If you build more around +1/+1 Counters with Master Biomancer -> Herald of Secret Streams

BUT, i think your Build is also good with more focus on poliferate.

Out:

Wildcall , Sultai Charm , Altered Ego

In:

Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Maelstrom Pulse , Spark Double

I am getting the idea that I should bump Deadeye Navigator, as I don't have anything that combos with him nor do I plan to, but regardless it being in play points a huge target on my head. With that said, I can't think of anything else besides Ixidor that will flip a Morph for me if I need it in a pinch. Any suggestions are most welcome.

DemonDragonJ on Will there Ever Be a ...

Clone is an iconic card in this game, inspiring numerous variations of it, nearly all of which are actually superior to it (but that is an instance of “power creep,” which occurs in nearly any game), most of which are mono-blue, as is the original, but there are some multicolored variations; Evil Twin is a black/blue variation, Dack's Duplicate is a red/blue variation, and both Altered Ego and Progenitor Mimic are green/blue variations.

However, thus far, there is no white/blue variation of Clone , so I do hope that such a creature is printed eventually, since white is my favorite color in this game.

What does everyone else say about this? Will there eventually be a white/blue variant of Clone ?

Shared Animosity I'd use over Coat of Arms.

You also have access to Clone s. Stunt Double , Spark Double , Dack's Duplicate , and Clever Impersonator are some of your better budget friendly options. Seeing as this is pretty casual, also consider Altered Ego .

ShadowUmbreon on Animar Big Boy Time

Riku has two abilities that are great, the trick to him is either balancing these two synergies or picking one and going all-in on it. and using the other as a bonus. Yours feels like you want to lean more towards the creatures, which is great but you'll probably want a couple more beefy critters. Just my opinion, but I have suggested some good synergies below for you

low Budget Agent of Treachery | Clever Impersonator | Progenitor Mimic | Altered Ego | Hornet Queen | Decimate | Disallow | Tempt with Reflections | Guided Passage

Higher budget Praetor's Counsel | Parallel Lives | Helm of the Host

gorsloth1 I wanted to make sure before I responded to your idea but mirror gallery actually has very little use here. If I have Altered Ego copy volrath then gallery is needed to keep both. However if Volrath is a copy of Storm Crow and then I play altered ego copying the storm crow (volrath) the altered ego will not revert to being volrath because it never was volrath. It will still have his activated ability and be a 7/5. The same applies with the Nacatl War-Pride tokens. Check here for what might be a better explanation
