Target creature gets +2/+2 until end of turn.

Landfall — If you had a land enter the battlefield under your control this turn, that creature gets +4/+4 until end of turn instead.

Thanks a lot for your suggestions! Idk how I forgot about Hashep Oasis while building the deck, guess that's an L on my part. Haven't been able to actually play modern a lot because of the lack of a playgroup in my area, so your sideboard suggestions are highly appreciated)

Idk how I feel about cutting Groundswell tbh, land drops haven't been a problem during the few times I've played the deck (yeah, like two games or however many I had are just an amazing statistic, right?), but I'll think about exchanging it Necropede.

Thanks once more!)

Hashep Oasis is a good manasync lategame when you don't want to draw lands any more since you can use it to buff your creatures.
Also I'd add 1x Vines of Vastwood and 2x Necropede and remove 3x Groundswell since it is harder to trigger Landfall without any Fetchlands.
For the sideboard remove Become Immense, for the same reason as Groundswell: it is hard to get the Delve cost without fetchlands. Also replace Larger Than Life with Massive Might since it costs 1 mana less and you can cast it after blockers are declard in the combat step to give the creatures trample that are actually blocked.
Add 2-3x Weather the Storm in your sideboard against Burn or other aggro decks and 4x Return to Nature both as graveyard hate and to destroy artifacts/enchantments.

For your upgrades follow the following order:
1.Ignoble Hierarch/Noble Hierarch, get the cheaper ones first
2.Inkmoth Nexus
3.Adding a second color

I've been playing BG Infect for 3 years now, here is my decklist, if you want to check it out.

I hope these suggestions will help you with your deck :)

I think Groundswell is much more reliable with fetches. However, Balaam__ is spot on with Rancor, I had completely forgotten about that one! Ignore Groundswell and go for Rancor :)

I love the pain lands. I run Shivan Reef in a budget storm deck and usually the damage I need to take is the same as an untapped shock land. The downside is it can't be fetched, but if I'm not paying for shocks I'm definitely not paying for fetches either :)

Squee_Spirit_Guide, I’m digging the land cards you mentioned. It’s always bothered me that a lot of them come into play tapped (unless you pay out the nose for them); it just slows everything down. I’ll keep an eye out for them.

I think Might of Old Krosa would be right at home in this deck. I’ve seen that card before in other decks, and it seems super powerful. I’ve also seenGroundswell before, and, admittedly, it confuses me a bit. People aren’t going to play a land every turn, so wouldn’t it only be great sometimes and mediocre the rest of the time? I’m sure I’m missing something with that.

No joke, I’ve had an Overrun card since I was a kid and have never quite fit it nicely into a deck. It could be super cool in here with all the tiny creatures I have.

Very nice! I feel the same about infect, sometimes it's a necessary evil. I'm not sure about proliferate because I've never built around it, but I can think of a couple of pump spells that might be useful in Groundswell and Might of Old Krosa. I know it's not technically the best card, but Overrun seems like it would be fun once your board is developed :)

For lands, Yavimaya Coast and Llanowar Wastes are solid, but are also still budget. I like that they give you access to two colours but you can use them for and not take the damage. Probably the best part is that they come into play untapped, which most other budget duals don't do.

Anyway, good luck! I hope you finally take down that Wellwisher combo!

This is such a cool deck. I had a snake build back in Kami but heck if I can remember it anymore : )

I feel like Bala Ged Recovery  Flip might be really good with tribe scout. It comes in tapped as a land, but if you are getting extra lands per turn, it might still benefit you, plus you get the really good recursion spell.

And, the explore mechanic might also be good with Sakura-Tribe Scout Path of Discovery could hit you more lands to scout in, buff your creatures, and give you some card selection too if you need it.

I also agree that Beastmaster Ascension might not be the best payoff. Maybe something that buffs one creature instead that you can get through with Kaseto, Orochi Archmage Umezawa's Jitte would probably be ideal, but that price tag is kinda bleh. Might of the Masses is one of my favorite buff spells for just how swingy it can be for one mana. Groundswell might also be good. And you could always test Colossification It looks slow, but who knows, with ramp and deathtouch creatures to slow opponenents down, it might get there.

And maybe Snake Umbra for being on theme and also really good. It does a little bit of everything.

Shisato, Whispering Hunter can be absolutely brutal when he stays on the board. It's not the most fun thing to play, but it's good for sure.

That's about all I can think of. Looks like an awesome collection of herpetofauna and a really fun deck to play : )

Something tells me protection isn't really what you're needing for this strategy; I'd remove Snakeskin Veil, as it doesn't provide nearly enough of a buff to aid your ASAP strategy. Replacement options could be anything from Groundswell to Prey's Vengeance to Viridescent Wisps for some card draw.
