I recommend running Turn Aside over Apostle's Blessing in your sideboard to protect your Ensoul Artifact as well.

Unlife on Infect gets to run Cavern …

2 months ago

I can’t think of any time I’d want to run a Cavern of Souls in my infect decks, except maybe as a sideboard one-off in legacy along with Crop Rotation . And even then, an additional Daze or Spellskite is usually just better and more flexible. I can’t use the cavern to name a creature type, and still benefit for being able to use it to cast a pump or protection spell next turn other then say Apostle's Blessing . Like it was said earlier, counterspell sing our creatures is less of a concern then killing them or countering our pump spells. I’m not sure about anyone else but I’m already running a fairly minimum mana base with Inkmoth Nexus taking up 1/5 of it, I don’t have room for a card that won’t make me colored mana.

The suggestion to run Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth however, that I can see myself running.

This deck does look very fun to play, always having options and hinged on a delicate balance of triggers.

Your mana base could really use an upgrade. I would lose the lands that come into play tapped, especially Boros Garrison, and replace them with what you have or can afford: Command Tower , Clifftop Retreat , Needleverge Pathway  Flip, Rugged Prairie , Spectator Seating , Sacred Foundry and Arid Mesa .

It seems like you would produce enough tokens to generate value for a Purphoros, God of the Forge . It would pair very well with Assemble the Legion, perhaps finally silencing the haters. ;)

Apostle's Blessing might be an worthwhile upgrade of Stave Off, allowing to protect your artifacts if needed.

I know Smothering Tithe is all the rage right now, but I would playtest Endless Horizons in this build. Setting 7 or 8 lands aside skims your deck and improves the quality of your draws, similar to Land Tax.

This looks about right for budget infect. I've seen Carrion Call in the sideboard for control. The instant speed is useful.

The main problem budget infect faces is the lack of Inkmoth Nexus - fortunately a likely reprint target - which offers a reliable threat resistant to removal.

Playing around that weakness will be the main challenge- playing more protection for creatures with stuff like Apostle's Blessing , possibly more repeatable pump effects.

You look like you've got most of a good list there, the rest will be tinkering to meet your meta's demands.

You're definitely going to want some form of protection for your guys. Apostle's Blessing would be sufficient.

Path to Exile has been eating this deck. Trying out Apostle's Blessing instead of Reckless Charge .

Some thoughts:

  • I would have thought you'd be able to get away with less lands, like 20, instead of 22. Personally i'd be dropping 2 lands and a Brass Squire for the remaining Sigarda's Aid and Steelshaper's Gift you currently have in the sideboard (they just seem like straight-up improvements, and must-haves for mainboard).

  • I'm surprised to see you running Plague Myr instead of Necropede. I would have thought you'd be wanting to swing with the infect creature every turn, and so the mana the Myr provides isn't great? I could be wrong?

  • I was expecting to see some Apostle's Blessing in the sideboard to protect your dudes.

  • I don't think you need to run more than a single copy of Argentum Armor, as you can search for it when needed, and there's just too many times you're going to get stuck with it in hand. I'd go down to a single copy so that you can run a more toolboxy weapon-set to best deal with the current situation. Both Maul of the Skyclaves and Sword of Light and Shadow both seem like strong other cards to run in the deck as 1-ofs.

  • How much value does Brass Squire actually provide? They seem quite slow in a deck that should be trying to close out the game fast. At the fastest, they can equip something on turn 4 (3 with ramp), when your opponent has probably already stabilized. I think Giver of Runes could better suite this slot, although to keep your artifact count high for Cranial Plating maybe some mix of Signal Pest and Welding Jar works better.

Unlife on Modern Infect (semi-budget)

Kiran_M, Missed the Dismember already there, 3 should be good for most things. The Apostle's Blessing in for Snakeskin Veil sounds great, in particular if you're worried about your mana base. Personally I've never liked stalker in the side, but that is going to be up to your own preference and playtesting. I'd also look at Surgical Extraction and Veil of Summer for the sideboard. Pricy, but they may be future options, veil in particular.
