Ichor Rats Discussion

As an avid fan of infect...yes yes let the "boos" come - i've been desiring a card that puts infect counters on players in a fashion similar to that of Ichor Rats but not on a creature body. After a bit of thought I designed this monstrosity. I think it's far from perfect, and is probably bit too far on the powerful side. Maybe someone can come along and redesign it to make it something close to playable?

how often do you find yourself going for the infect win through Ichor Rats ?
I'm playing a very similar list and hardly ever go for the second ability at all. It seems to be more about drawing as many cards as possible to find combo pieces for me, so i've decided to cut the rats for another piece for the Phyrexian Altar + Pawn of Ulamog + Reassembling Skeleton combo or some undying creature maybe.
really love all the reanimation in the deck. going to implement this.

Ichor Rats is also another solid infect creature that really gets the ball rolling for everyone at the table.

mistersensation Thank you!! Yeah, I kinda did not want to go full on infect 'coss it's kinda hated and little too powerful sometimes, I try to keep the deck more casual. Things like Ichor Rats is a fun suprise since it puts poison counter on all players and I can try to win by proliferating with Yawgmoth. For wincons that was kinda my idea, also in mono black deck Gray Merchant of Asphodel can do some great work! I'm probably gonna change some cards as I get to playtest and fine-tune it more but currently I am quite happy at it.

Hey there, You might be interested to add The new Evolution Sage . I would also look for some additional protection like Lightning Greaves Swiftfoot Boots and maybe Heroic Intervention as atraxa is a removalmagnet. Cards to cut:
Sylvan Reclamation it is too expensive and there a many better option for artifact/enchantment removal
Ichor Rats would be ok if you were more dedicated into infect but like this it's too slow with proliferate alone
Orzhov Advokist The protection sounds better then it is, people just pump their creatures till they are confident enough to attack and most casual decks are midrange either way so they take the Bonus 1-2 turns gladly
