Grim Affliction


Put a -1/-1 counter on target creature, then proliferate.

Hey there! Mushroom time is party time with these fun guys.

Okay to make up for the horrible pun I'm going to give some suggestions. You have a lot of spore counter buildup here, and these need cultivating time to reap the rewards. I'd recommend more Proliferate to accelerate how many spore counters you can get. You currently have three accelerants, Winding Constrictor, Karn's Bastion and Sporesower Thallid in the deck. How about Grim Affliction, Spread the Sickness, Plaguemaw Beast, Smell Fear, Evolution Sage, and Throne of Geth?

What is Tainted Strike in the deck for at the moment? It doesn't look like you capitalize on wither or poison counters with this deck, so I wouldn't route the deck down that road.

The Elvish Farmer is a nice spore counter addition, but card cost is high for something you can live without.

Would having a Barter in Blood interest you? I've noticed you don't have as many Black cards in the deck, and it'd be useful for more sac opportunities that also hurt your opponent.

I am all for budget decks and think this looks very promising without breaking the bank. Good job and happy harvesting.

Alright, so most Infect decks are either mono colored or , or . I haven’t run across many Sultai variations, so you’ve got something a little unique here. Nothing wrong with that, but I do see a minor issue. With Proliferate, you’re either going to want to go all in on it 110% or disregard it entirely. A card like Grim Affliction for instance is grossly overcosted for little to no payoff. Since Proliferate would only add a single poison counter to an already poisoned opponent, it’s definitely not a card you want to be running with the current setup you have. I recommend cutting all copies and leaning more into fast buffs, something like Rancor or whatever the closest approximation in your personal collection is.

Aside from that I think everything else is perfectly playable. There are better (and significantly more expensive) cards that are staples in most Infect decks, but you’ve made your mission statement clear in the opening paragraph of your description and I commend that. I also think Corrupted Resolve is a great fit here. I hadn’t seen that card before and it functions like a full on Counterspell but at a Mana Leak’s cmc—quite nice!

You only have eight actual cards that put -1/-1 counters on things, and nine other cards that depend on -1/-1 counters in order to do anything. In deck construction terms, it really seems like you have way too many "payoffs" for the amount of "enablers". I'd suggest adding some combination of Grim Affliction, Skinrender, Banewhip Punisher, and Midnight Banshee.

Hello Saccox, Grim Affliction is a card I considered at first, but I think is probably unnecessary since the deck doesn't require -1/-1 counters on lots and lots of creatures for the combo to work. Grim Affliction might be fun in my wither deck, however. Thanks for the upvote! :)
