If the dude just wants to sit back and watch everyone else do the work for him, he can play "Group Hug" Bant or Grixis Donate / Harmless Offering control...

vasarto77 - Yup! Unless an ability tells you specifically that you can only activate it at a certain time, you can activate it as many times as you can afford before the first one resolves.

Death Mist

Creature - Wall


Prevent all combat damage that would be dealt to and by Death Mist.

At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice another creature or planeswalker.

0 / 2

See Fog Bank for my inspiration. Notice that it says sacrifice another creature--so you can't wuss out and sacrifice itself. Also, unlike Fog Bank , this one does not have flying.

Vile Sewercreep

Creature - Ooze


At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice a tapped land.

3 / 3

I made Vile Sewercreep because I wanted to also do something golgari.

Make more counterproductive cards. Cards that hurt you but maybe combo with something else, like a Harmless Offering or whatever.

so lets say ı have a Sneak Attack and a lot of red mana. during my turn, i use sneak attack a bunch and put some creatures on the battlefield. one of them is Sigarda, Host of Herons . then i use Harmless Offering and give the sneak attack to my opponent. then attacks and after that i move to my end step. does sigarda prevent the sacrifice from sneak attack because my opponent controls it?

One thing you can do, to make a cheap anti-Infect deck, is by finding and using spells that cause you to pay or lose life. Since Infect doesn't care about your life total, this negates the one drawback of these spells. This was traditionally called "suicide black" and (depending on your era) featured spells like Devour in Shadow , Raving Oni-Slave , Imp's Mischief , and other spells that are unreasonably effective for their manacost, because you lose life when you play them.

Since most of their creatures are 1/1, and need pumping, Night of Souls' Betrayal or Curse of Death's Hold win instantly. And don't forget that infect hates Gut Shot and Quicksand .

If you're good at brewing, Immortal Coil shuts down infect as long as it's on the battlefield: those decks are basically designed to deal exactly 10 damage, and can't handle the prevention effect very well. Cracking Polluted Delta , and Thought Scour ing yourself, is a good start to padding your "life total" out of range of infect and burn (bonus points if you're trying to Harmless Offering it to your opponent and pack mainboard graveyard hate , because you beat dredge and phoenix, too). This strategy is basically a metagame answer, because traditional grixis control does better against a wider board.

Occasionally, an infect player might forget that Darkness is a modern legal black Fog , and walk right into it, but your friend will only ever fall for that once.

Thanks for the help! I've never made a deck quite like this before and I really don't have a good idea of what I'm doing. If you're wondering about Harmless Offering and Bazaar Trader they're in there because if an opponent loses the game while in control of Xantcha, Sleeper Agent the control replacement effect ends and she comes under my control which could be very bad.

"7/13/2018 In a multiplayer game, if a player leaves the game, all cards that player owns leave as well. If the player under whose control Xantcha entered the battlefield leaves the game, the effect changing control of Xantcha ends. Because Xantcha’s replacement effect creates a continuous effect causing another player to control it, Xantcha isn’t exiled."
