Ichorclaw Myr

Artifact Creature — Phyrexian Myr

Infect (This creature deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters and to players in the form of poison counters.)

Whenever Ichorclaw Myr becomes blocked, it gets +2/+2 until end of turn.

One of infects deck's weaknesses is how few 'playable' infect creature there are for modern. Most decks run Glistener Elf, Blighted Agent, Plague Stinger, Inkmoth Nexus, and occasionally Ichorclaw Myr in some combination so they're sure to have a creature or two to pump for the kill. With only Blighted Agent, you are rarely going to consistently have an agent in hand to play.

You also need some protection. Infect decks are build around things like Vines of Vastwood and Blossoming Defense that both pump and protect your creatures from the removal that turns your 10/10 infect creature into just another graveyard addition.

I'd recommend looking at a current modern simic infect decklist, and finding ways to splash red and doublestrike in (Assault Strobe is also an option) so you have a strong core to work from.

Ichorclaw Myr, Scale Up, Might of Old Krosa, Vines of Vastwood, and Inkmoth Nexus seem like strong additions.

Great deck! I'm not a big fan of infect. What are some good and cheap replacements for Ichorclaw Myr and Plague Myr? Thank you!

Mirrodin was my first block and Myr were my favorite creatures! I always thought infect was good so I tried Ichorclaw Myr or Plague Myr with Rogue's Passage. Passage helps your monument produce more mana. Also, maybe Springleaf Drum to get a little ramp out of fresh tokens? +1!

Niko9, I’m glad you dig this list. I agree with you that players have to truly think about and choose what to do in situations when being attacked with infect. They can either risk a creature being permanently weakened or take what is essentially double damage from poison counters (which is the main reason I don’t like it. I like faster decks, but infect can be a bit much). Especially when you’re attacking with a card like Ichorclaw Myr, these decisions can be harder to make than with normal attacks.

I’ve always liked Ranger's Guile ever since it came out in Innistrad. It offers both offense and defense, and it has saved some of my important creatures from burn cards and destroy effects. With running a few less creatures in this deck than I normally do (and most of them only being 1/1), I knew I needed this card for some extra protection.

Thank you so much for checking this out!

As someone who loves infect, I have to say your list has waaaaaaaaaay too many creatures and lands. Even slower versions like mine, a Monoblack one, run around 12 creatures + 4 Inkmoth Nexus. Infect is a strong mechanic. So, in order to make it balanced, WOTC made the creatures really bad, which is why it's usually a bad idea to run this many of them. And 28 lands is asking to get mana flooded

Nevertheless, I'll give my suggestions without trying to chance to core ideia of the deck. If playing this was is how you have fun and it works for you and your friends, then I just want to help you make it better without modifying its core.


If you want me to give you suggestions more aligned with how Infect is normally played, tell me and I'll be happy to help. I just wanted to respect your deckbuilding style as much as possible with these.

70% of your one drops are green. The only one drop creature is green. you need more green mana!

If you are trying to kill on turn 2-4 then you could probably have

4x Yavimaya Coast 1x Pendelhaven

Adding 2 coast and a Pendelhaven would still keep you under $50. I also feel you are light on creatures. You really need a creature to stick and opponent to not have removal, and if they do you need to be able to protect it or reload. I think you need 19 mana and 12 creatures, so maybe add 2 more Ichorclaw Myr.

I don't think you need Distortion Strike, it's sorcery speed and it's useless on blighted agent, and only +1 power pales to everything else in your deck. Definitely sticks out as the weakest card in deck. Also, islands are really iffy when you really need extra green for all the pump. Having your second land be an island with a elf on board ready to swing and groundswell/krosa/mutagenic growth in hand on turn two feels really bad. I'd add: 2x Ichorclaw Myr 2x Yavimaya Coast 1x Pendelhaven

Take out: 3x Distortion Strike 2x Island

Sideboard: Depending on meta, cheap options that would be great for this would be

Nature's Claim Kill saga's or ensnaring brigde or spellskite or whatever other annoying thing that you need to remove.

Test of Talents or Spell Pierce (would probably add back one island and take out forest if adding more blue)

Autumn's Veil (more protect)

Wild Defiance (for grindy removal heavy long games)

Gut Shot (kill monkeys) and/or Dismember

Lets say I channel Shinen of Life's Roar onto a Ichorclaw Myr. I swing in, and they are forced to block with all of their creatures. Does the Ichorclaw Myr get buffed for each creature? Does Flanking with (for example) Mtenda Herder give all blockers -1 -1?

(If yes, I totally won't make a whole deck based off of this interaction ;).)
