Inkmoth Nexus Discussion

  • With all your spells being 2cmc or less, you should be running Lurrus of the Dream-Den in the sideboard.

  • Not running Inkmoth Nexus will be making a big concession, as that was a common card for Hardened Scales to use to pull off many of its turn-3 wins.

  • Arcbound Javelineer feels like a worse version of Walking Ballista 90% of the time. Also, not running Walking Ballista further restricts your ability to get off turn 3 or 4 wins.

  • I get what you're trying to do with Springleaf Drum and Ornithopter ... but this feels too janky to be reliable? And it essentially means you're spending 2 cards to get a little extra mana. Feels like a lot of the time it won't really be worth it - you're going to be down in cards, and it doesn't look like you're playing any faster than typical Hardened Scales decks (both versions can win on turn 3, but it looks like this decks options to do so are faar more limited, and require many more cards to pull-off).

Looking at your current list, I think you should drop:

Also, i'm not sure why you're running Inkmoth Nexus . This deck is not going to be able to win by infect damage, and its not something that you should be aiming for. With all of your spells requiring red mana, this land could hurt you more than help you (you'd be better off running Mountains instead of these).

I didn't mention Fury of the Horde and Twinflame , as you said you'd really want to include them, and I do think Fury of the Horde at least has a decent chance of being useful as a 1-of in the deck. I do think you're going to have a really hard time making full use of Twinflame , but it shouldn't hurt your deck too much as a 1-of.

Budget -2 Plains +2 Forest +1 Gemstone Mine -1 Temple of Silence -1 Zagoth Crystal +1 Astral Cornucopia -1 Gyre Sage +1 Fynn, the Fangbearer -1 (3 total) more Plains for a Blight Mamba . I think we are good w/ 38 lands.

Non-Budget Not sure what to cut in this section, but if yo' wallet is feelin' like a pimp, go on brush yo' shoulders off. Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider Once you add the fetches + shocks, Become Immense becomes...immensely better. Usually will cast for G.

Personal Choices - Prairie Stream - Sunken Hollow + Vivid Grove + Vivid Creek Prairie and sunken will come into play tapped most of the time anyway, so might as well make rainbow colors and get some counters back on them late game.
-1 Render Silent (casting cost is prohibitive). +1 Fuel for the Cause -1 Fathom Mage +1 Steady Progress . Fathom Mage seems iffy for card draw. Steady progress feels more stable, instant speed, and proliferates. -1 Despark +1 Inexorable Tide . Ups your CMC aka mana value by a bit, but I'd rather go the proactive than reactive game plan. -1 Lazav, the Multifarious . He will appear as one of your infecty boiz from the yard, but at that point you're already behind, and he has no forms of evasion. Maybe +1 Sword of Truth and Justice instead. (It's slow) -1 Supreme Verdict (prohibitive casting cost, you're probably the one with the most valuable creatures). +1 Contentious Plan for more draw and more dirty HIV. -1 Phyrexian Juggernaut . Too slow, probably a dead card in your hand, chances of it not getting blocked are small. I imagine best-case scenario is that it goes unblocked and you pump it, but 'bout Roalesk, Apex Hybrid . Ain't nobody gonna attack you when they get proliferate juices on their shirt.

But wait, do you want to make the deck WORSE? Contagion Engine + Magistrate's Scepter . Take all the turns. 7 mana + a boardstate is a steep setup, but do you want to be a winner, or a JANK-ASS BISS?

I'm not really sure if these are good or not. So this section is useless. Strionic Resonator . Seems kinda win-more. But meh. Idk.

Let's f* with Hop -1 Generous Gift +1 Teferi's Protection . I am a terrible human being.

I most definitely could be wrong in this section. -1 Ancient Tomb . You'll take a heavy amount of damage, and your color requirements are strong. I'd replace with +1 Inkmoth Nexus

Aight baby gurl, bedtime. May your infectious love for infect cause infectious hate upon you. Love, Jake Stremers

This whatcha boi be thinkin' to improve dat' dirty poison build. CMDR next to Atraxa (on the input section) will make her appear as the commander rather than as a creature.

Thanks for the feedback, I'm glad you like the list and hope you're having fun with yours!

Needle Spires is one of the only real taplands in the deck, and sometimes it is a bit of a let down to draw late game. It has come in handy a few tiems, although I do think a card like this is much better in a deck that leans more into Voltron because you can buff it better. That being said, using Scroll of the Masters or even Fists of Flame can turn it into a very powerful attacker, and I'm thinking this card is going to be really good with Show of Confidence since the counters remain even when it goes back into a land. If Needle Spires didn't have double strike though, I don't think even if it was a 4/4 it would make the cut at four mana because double strike translates into so much power when combined with other boosting effects and with trample or against deathtouch.

As a coincidental aside, I'm putting Inkmoth Nexus in as a backup win condition thanks to cards like the ones I mentioned above being able to get it to ten power pretty easily.

All that said, I wouldn't blame someone for cutting Needle Spires. It is definitely a last resort option, and an expensive one at essentially five mana since you can't use it for mana if you attack, but I like having options, and I see this as a modal card of sorts.

EVENcast on Killian's C.A.L.V.E.S

Nice Killian Deck! I’ve been working on a similar build, Killing Killian, and I think I’ve stumbled onto a few good strategies. I’d recommend Sigarda's Aid to drop your auras at instant speed. When your opponents see Phyresis they’re going to make sure they can block or remove the commander ASAP, but if you wait to drop it before the damage step you can eliminate an opponent before they know it’s coming. I like the idea of sneaky infect wins, so I’ve also included Snake Cult Initiation and Inkmoth Nexus . Nexus will lose its auras at the end of turn, but if you can buff it at instant speed you’ll potentially be able to take someone out. I’m dubious weather Killian can win through regular commander damage, as we need to buff him +19, so I’m really leaning on infect. I’m working on a primer as well, and I’ll be making updates once I have more gameplay data... I’ll probably check back in on your page to see what you’ve come up with as well. Feel free to check out my list and throw some suggestions out as well! Good luck with your Kill Box!

Also, some manlands like Inkmoth Nexus and Blinkmoth Nexus could do some work fighting against boardwipes. Infect in general could get out of hand real fast (I'm thinking Plague Stinger and Vector Asp ).

Any thoughts about Protean Hulk , Triumph of the Hordes , Phyrexian Hydra , Inkmoth Nexus ?
