I love the idea behind this deck! When I think of GW big butt decks, infect never even crosses my mind. +1 for originality!

You might also want Blightwidow and Grafted Exoskeleton and Shriek Raptor .

Have you thought about maybe using cards with Infect? Not for any specific mechanical reason (although with all those low-power high-defense creatures, it might actually be a good way to eventually get rid of strong enemy creatures), but more because poison and spiders really fit well together from a flavor perspective? Also, there's already a spider with that, Blightwidow , and Phyrexian Hydra really already looks like a spider anyway, if you're willing to ignore that it technically doesn't have the creature type or reach. Phyresis or Tainted Strike might also be cool, again both for flavor reasons and because it gives your creatures an easier way to kill.

I feel like you're also not doing enough with your graveyard, given how many cards you put in there. The only idea I had was Threshold, but there's not much that fits the theme of the deck. Maybe Rancid Earth or Toxic Stench ?

Mostly, I just have a soft spot for Giant Spider, but you're right. Blightwidow is pretty much just a better version of it.

Actually, curious why you have 2 Blightwidows and 2 Giant Spiders when the Blight is just a Giant Spider with Infect. The price seems about even. Variety?

The_Cardinal - It's great yet it's just for 6 mana and at turn 3-4, it's kind of hit or miss since Inkmoth Nexus + Mutagenic Growth on turn 2 for 3 and then turn 3 doing a Giant Growth for 4 (7 total), turn 4 doesn't hold merit holding a Become Immense when there's only 2 delve and 3-4 mana to use it and then nothing to cast it on. Titanic Growth would be a better replacement, especially keeping on curve and total CMC of the deck down now that I'm thinking about it.

The only green card that has flying AND infect is Blightwidow and that really doesn't have flying and is CMC 4.

Hi! Happy to help!

Cut suggestions:

Deck seems pretty solid, I guess just start cutting redundant cards. Decide weather to focus more on tokens and +1/+1 counters or infect and go from there! Good luck!

Hello! Here are my cut suggestions.

Gonna second DrukenReaps here and confirm that 36 lands and 9 ramp is sufficient for your deck.

1) Dark Ritual one time ramp isn't as good in EDH as it is elsewhere

2) Warped Landscape too expensive for what it does. I'd rather run a land of the color I need more usually.

3) Golgari Keyrune and

4) Golgari Cluestone. Been cutting these in a lot of my decks. Most % of your curve in 3 cmc so you don't want to be playing mana rocks then. You could ad in more 2 cmc mana rocks if you feel like you still need the ramp. Much more useful early and don't slow you down as much late game.

5) Terramorphic Expanse Don't really need it in 2 color.

To differ from DrunkenReaps, I'd advise to stay away from infect, as it will get some hate that can occasionally turn a table against you.

6) Blight Mamba

7) Blightwidow

8) Phyrexian Swarmlord

9) Spinebiter

These cuts will lower your curve to relieve pressure on your your mana base, or free up your 2 drop spot so you can play Hapatra.

Last cut. When cutting stuff I always start at the top of the curve. That is:

Liliana, Death Wielder

I know she does what you want the deck to do and all, but at what cost man?? 7 mana for either a) a single -1/-1 counter on a creature, or b) a kill spell. Either way not efficient at all. And the ultimate, which you'll rarely get to in multiplayer, isn't all that great. Especially down the road if you use more Undying combos.

Hope some of this helps! Good luck!

Would remove Llanowar Elves and add in higher strenghth/CMC cards like Blightwidow. Also Giant Growth over Gather Courage. And something to give them trample would work well.
