Inkmoth Nexus


: Gain .

: Inkmoth Nexus becomes a 1/1 Blinkmoth artifact creature with flying and infect until end of turn. It's still a land. (It deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters and to players in the form of poison counters.)

Thanx for the view. I think youre right about the lands, i've adjusted the base. Test playing showed mostly the Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage combo as constant threat, with the finisher of Inkmoth Nexus and Kessig Wolf Run .

I think its an idea to cut the +1 counter-tech and focus more on landfall.

Thanx for the thinking

As it is you're probably right in thinking that the deck is too slow. Infect is typically aggro/combo, and gets quick wins in through pump spells. Scale Up is great, but consider some of the following as well:

You don't indicate what sort of budget you're looking at. On the more expensive side, options for your land base include Inkmoth Nexus and Pendelhaven .

In terms of mana, Golgari Rot Farm is definitely too slow. Woodland Cemetery is not ideal, as it doesn't come in untapped turn one, but it is a reasonable alternative. Fetches and shocks are of course great, but Blooming Marsh is a good choice too. Lands 1-3 are typically far more important than anything else for Infect.

My final suggestion for now would be to put Deathmark and Surgical Extraction in the sideboard, unless your local meta is particularly skewed. Even then, you should probably focus on your own plan more than disrupting other people's with infect.

It's also nice that Inkmoth Nexus is the only expensive card in infect that's infect-specific. Nobles and the manabase are the only expensive bits, and those are useful in lots of decks.

Well, small tips to begin with.

  • Divine Visitation does almost nothing and is quite mana expensive considering you have no ramp. It does help with Bishop of Wings , Ajani, Strength of the Pride and Serra the Benevolent . However, considering you have 24 other creatures that it doesn't work with and your planeswalkers won't continuously creature tokens since the'll eventually run out of loyalty, just take it out of the deck.

  • Don't get me wrong, Inkmoth Nexus is an amazing card but not in decks like these. Taking into Taking into account your deck is really heavy on mana costs, it probably won't have that many opportunities to attack. And if it attacks you have no way to pump it.

  • Just use Pearl Medallion instead of Oketra's Monument . It's cheaper and better.

  • Llanowar Elves foi ótimo, deu para perceber por que Noble Hierarch seria tão boa no deck. Para o deck ser rápido você quer ter 3-4 manas no turno 3, uma criatura apta para atacar e uma carta para proteger a criatura. Elves no primeiro turno cai como uma luva, te rampando para 4 no turno 3 ou gerando uma verde quando Inkmoth Nexus está no campo.

  • Estava viajando só com 13+1 florestas, era muito pouco. Inkmoth Nexus não pode ser contado como um terreno, não só porque ele pode ser usado para atacar, mas porque ele não gera mana verde para castar as mágicas no turno que você quer ganhar.

  • Diminui o número de proteções, de 10 para 8, como teste. Durante os jogos uma mão com muitas cartas desse tipo não é o que o deck quer fazer.

  • Scale Up é ótima, coloquei mais uma, você sempre quer ter na mão. Com ela, só há necessidade de mais um buff +4/+4 para ganhar o jogo, e por isso coloquei 2 Groundswell no lugar de um Rancor (que você não que em múltiplos de qualquer forma) e um Mutagenic Growth , que pareceu o pior buff do deck quando estava na mão.

  • Ainda tenho dúvidas sobre o sideboard, mas contra Control tem que ser mais agressivo ainda, porque apostar em um deck que aumente o jogo é péssima ideia. Talvez contra decks midrange até dê para colocar algumas cartas mais mid-game.

this inspired me to make a blue white version of this deck, with Invisible Stalker , Arcanum Wings , Eldrazi Conscription and keeping all your white, and colorless cards with Mutagenic Growth and Noxious Revival being paid for with life. with Tallowisp to tutor the conscription or possibly Sovereigns of Lost Alara to get a late game version on Inkmoth Nexus or Invisible Stalker with the hammer. I appeciate this build, it helped me on my own version so much. but im subbing Ichorclaw Myr with Plague Myr for the extra mana ramp.

Tuesday Night Modern 2-2

2-1 Infect Lost first game to being greedy and not leaving a blocker. Second game i Genesis Hydra choosing a Bird of Paradise for a blocker, and swing for lethal. Third game opponent went all in on Inkmoth Nexus turn 3 Primal Command shuffled the threat into the library.

2-0 Goblins Primal Command a lifesaver, was able to Karn, the Great Creator for a Trinisphere then second game down to one life Primal back enough life to fetch shock to be able to cast my Freed from the Real combo and search for Genesis Hydra for 100, play Karn, and tutor up Walking Ballista for lethal.

1-2 Humans First game top decked combo win before lethal attack. Second game aggro'd out, third game my opponent wrecked me top decking sideboard Plague Engineer naming Dryad and taking down all 3 of my mana dorks.

0-2 Burn Burned out turn 3 on both games...

Deck not fast enough. Consistent to turn 4 or 5, not working good enough for modern i'm afraid. Promising shell, seems like it needs another couple of support cards... Oath of Nissa not being able to choose enchantment is a real bummer.
