DareiJuxis on Kess Infect - Gorgeous or Gross?

2 months ago

I really like the idea of non-combat infect!

    I think it'd be much better to have a Chandra's Ignition than the Vraska. The ultimate is a pretty cute win but it's unrealistic to think it'll ultimate often, if ever, and all it takes is your opponents destroying your creatures to null the ultimate. Her plus does not do enough and her minus takes away from the ultimate while being slow.

      Tezzeret's Gambit and Contentious Plan seem better than the sorcery card draw present (Read the Bones, Bitter Revelation, Concentrate), and any of the 3 mana X draw spells (like Commander's Insight, Blue Sun's Zenith) are going to be better than Mind Spring, with an interesting emphasis on Drown in Dreams since if you wanted you could mill yourself with Kess's ability to get back most anything you may want at some point. Might not be worth it like the other ones are, but definitely interesting.

      Since landfall is featured heavily in your deck, you may want to consider any combination of Evolving Wilds, Fabled Passage and Terramorphic Expanse. This will increase the number of cards milled every turn.

      May I suggest replacing Glacial Grasp with Skyline Cascade? This can open up some space for other card draw options or Sage's Row Denizen, which will cause an opponent to mill every time a blue creature enters the battlefield. Another reason to replace Glacial Grasp is any mill you do should mill no less than 1 card for every one mana spent. Permanents that trigger mill are okay since the mill will eventually pay for itself. As the deck currently stands, you'll only break even on GG if you have Sphinx's Tutelage on the battlefield. If you wish to continue to rely on Instants and Sorceries may I suggest a full set of Mystic Sanctuary? This will allow you to be able to use them multiple times.

      To get mill through card draw accomplished sooner, you may want to consider having three copies of Jace's Erasure and two copies of Sphinx's Tutelage. If you go the Sage's Row Denizen route, you can add in Jace's Archivist and accelerate the number of Counters on Ominous Seas. Another card to Consider is Teferi's Ageless Insight.

      If most or all of these options aren't to your liking a playset of Contentious Plan would be like putting two foreshadow counters on OS.

      Thank you for reading me out. I hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

      Impulse OUT Deflecting Swat IN

      Contentious Plan Sort of replaced Impulse as my two-mana card for early counters. The value of Deflecting Swat can hardly be overstated, as it provides early protection for Mizzix while being relevant all game long.

      Aetherspouts OUT Introduction to Annihilation IN

      Spouts is such a conditional card, and we have plenty of board wipes when we count or kill-the-table x-spells. Intro is great in that its free permanent removal for us much of the time.

      Overwhelming Intellect OUT Dramatic Reversal IN

      A counterspell that can only counter a creature spell is underwhelming, and we added swat. I can't believe Dramatic Reversal hadn't been added earlier. It plays into our combo with Reiterate , and allows us to fetch the whole combo with Firemind's Foresight . A true must include!

      Fall of the Titans OUT Expropriate IN

      Fall was always our worst x-spell, and we have more than enough in the deck. For a replacement win con its far better to just take another turn and steal everyone's best thing. The greatest thing about this card is that its so cheap to cast with Mizzix!

      Spring / Mind OUT Archmage Emeritus IN

      Spring is great but sorcery speed and a one-off. Archmage will draw us cards the whole game. We're up to three whole creatures in this deck now!

      Howl of the Horde OUT Solve the Equation IN

      I've got plenty of copy dorks here, so another tutor is great, especially one that will usually cost me just two blue mana!

      THE SHOW BUTTON DOESN'T WORK OMG HERE IT IS TYPED OUT LIKE A LOSER.

      Budget -2 Plains +2 Forest +1 Gemstone Mine -1 Temple of Silence -1 Zagoth Crystal +1 Astral Cornucopia -1 Gyre Sage +1 Fynn, the Fangbearer -1 (3 total) more Plains for a Blight Mamba . I think we are good w/ 38 lands.

      Non-Budget Not sure what to cut in this section, but if yo' wallet is feelin' like a pimp, go on brush yo' shoulders off. Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider Once you add the fetches + shocks, Become Immense becomes...immensely better. Usually will cast for G.

      Personal Choices - Prairie Stream - Sunken Hollow + Vivid Grove + Vivid Creek Prairie and sunken will come into play tapped most of the time anyway, so might as well make rainbow colors and get some counters back on them late game.
      -1 Render Silent (casting cost is prohibitive). +1 Fuel for the Cause -1 Fathom Mage +1 Steady Progress . Fathom Mage seems iffy for card draw. Steady progress feels more stable, instant speed, and proliferates. -1 Despark +1 Inexorable Tide . Ups your CMC aka mana value by a bit, but I'd rather go the proactive than reactive game plan. -1 Lazav, the Multifarious . He will appear as one of your infecty boiz from the yard, but at that point you're already behind, and he has no forms of evasion. Maybe +1 Sword of Truth and Justice instead. (It's slow) -1 Supreme Verdict (prohibitive casting cost, you're probably the one with the most valuable creatures). +1 Contentious Plan for more draw and more dirty HIV. -1 Phyrexian Juggernaut . Too slow, probably a dead card in your hand, chances of it not getting blocked are small. I imagine best-case scenario is that it goes unblocked and you pump it, but wait...how 'bout Roalesk, Apex Hybrid . Ain't nobody gonna attack you when they get proliferate juices on their shirt.

      But wait, do you want to make the deck WORSE? Contagion Engine + Magistrate's Scepter . Take all the turns. 7 mana + a boardstate is a steep setup, but do you want to be a winner, or a JANK-ASS BISS?

      I'm not really sure if these are good or not. So this section is useless. Strionic Resonator . Seems kinda win-more. But meh. Idk.

      Let's f* with Hop -1 Generous Gift +1 Teferi's Protection . I am a terrible human being.

      I most definitely could be wrong in this section. -1 Ancient Tomb . You'll take a heavy amount of damage, and your color requirements are strong. I'd replace with +1 Inkmoth Nexus

      Aight baby gurl, bedtime. May your infectious love for infect cause infectious hate upon you. Love, Jake Stremers

      This whatcha boi be thinkin' to improve dat' dirty poison build. CMDR next to Atraxa (on the input section) will make her appear as the commander rather than as a creature.

      Spell_Slam on Level Up

      Considering that your blink spells are great with the teacher and Mulldrifter, but really bad with your level up creatures, I really wouldn't run 16 copies. I think cutting Acrobatic Maneuver, and Momentary Blink would be a good start. Maybe cutting 2-4 copies of Cloudshift as well wouldn't be bad.

      In their place, I would recommend some Proliferate spells. They will fill a similar role as your teacher, though you'll have to get the first level counter on yourself. Something like Contentious Plan , Thrummingbird and maybe Martyr for the Cause could be interesting options for you. These could also be substitutes for Drift of Phantasms, which I think was only there to get your teacher, right?

      You might want some other card draw like Preordain and Ponder to find what you need and smooth out your deck.

      16 lands is also too few for your deck. Considering how many 3-drops you are playing, I think 22 would be more appropriate.

      Have you considered Karn's Bastion ? If you replace Shivan Reef and Underground River with them it should give you some extra army boost.

      Also, if you replace 2 copies of Evolving Wilds with a copy each of Fabled Passage and Terramorphic Expanse it will leave your deck slightly less vunerable to spells that allow you to go through your zones to exile all your cards of the same name.

      Personally, I'd replace Honor the God-Pharaoh with Contentious Plan You draw fewer cards but you don't have to discard and the proliferate also boosts your planeswalkers.

      Happy Hunting!
