Insidious Will Discussion
1 week ago
I just happened across your deck. I know it's been a while since you uploaded, but here are my suggestions:
Notion Thief works well too. I just find I get targeted when I play it, so I took mine out of the deck.
As for removal protection, cheaper counterspells help. Familiar's Ruse is cute and flavorful, but Swan Song is cheaper, and doesn't require you to have a creature to bounce. Insidious Will is flexible with modes, but I've found Narset's Reversal works better almost every time, while being 2 mana cheaper.

Insidious Will is a modal card that counters all spells, though I'm not sure the modes are worth the extra mana

Heyya Tanman, taking a look at the list and I have some broad critiques and some smaller ones. Let's start big.
You don't have enough +1/+1 counter cards to make it worth including payoffs for.
If you're playing infect, you're gonna need evasion, because no one in their right mind just lets an infect creature through, and honestly they're pretty small bois to begin with. Fleshing out the +1 counter package may help with this, big creatures are more troublesome to block and effects like Tuskguard Captain and Abzan Falconer can provide evasion beyond just being big and chunky.
You could do with a bit more ramp and a LOT more card draw.
Cards that are probably cuttable include:
Oko, the Trickster: I see this walker being cast for 6 mana, putting two +1 counters on one of your dudes, and immediately being focused to death by the rest of the table because its ult wins the game. You'd honestly be better off with Citadel Siege, it's harder to kill.
Arrest, Luminous Bonds, and Pacifism: in our meta, with so many creatures that either don't need to attack or can just be sacrificed, you're better off using kill spells like Mortify, Putrefy, or Swords to Plowshares (especially Swords bc exile beats recursion).
Grave Betrayal: such a sweet card, but much too slow.
Omen of the Dead and Omen of the Hunt: neither of these really do anything to further your gameplan. The fact that they're enchantments doesn't matter to this deck, and there are stronger recursion and ramp options.
Sunbond: There are 5 cards in this entire deck that gain you life. Goes great with your commander but there are a lot of things I'd rather spend my turn 4 on.
Courage in Crisis: Three whole mana for this effect? It's not a horrible card, but definitely inefficient.
Debt to the Deathless: This card would only be okay if damage was your primary win condition. As is? Not good.
Duneblast: The 7-mana slot may not be ideal for a wrath? Maybe this one is fine tho, idk.
Planewide Celebration: 7 mana to proliferate four times? No.
Storm Herd: Once again, this might be fine if damage was your wincon. You'd get a bunch of evasive attackers. As is? Probably not good.
Altogether though, great first deck, this would've kicked the crap out of my old Marath build back in the day.

TriusMalarky you would get the second from Kalamax. Someone plays a spell, you counter it, but when it goes on the stack, Kalamax copies the first Insidious Will, you target the first Insidious Will with the copy, you now have a third Insidious Will which you use to copy the second Insidious Will, making a fourth, which then copies another Insidious WIll, and so on. Kalamax gets a counter for each copy of the spell, which is infinite.

If you want to make Kalamax as big as possible, you should add Insidious Will, when you cast it, you copy the original with copy, which you then use to copy the first copy, and so on, making it so you can put an infinite amount of counters on Kalalax.
