zapyourtumor: I'd love to see Invisible Stalker (so to speak). ;-) I don't have any yet, or it would have been one of the first cards included. I have some changes in mind that ought to help. If not, I'll fix it on the next pass. This is still very much a work in progress. Thanks for the suggestion; always appreciated.

TheVectornaut Thanks for your feedback! I'll considerate your suggestions. My first build of this deck uses Sigil of Sleep , but I'd rather use Hidden Strings to make the Delver of Secrets Flip more affordable and faster on the game. I'll test the Invisible Stalker instead Cloud of Faeries . Slither Blade keeps the mana curve low.
Thanks for your advice!

I'm no expert on competitive legacy, but I think I'd like Invisible Stalker over either Cloud of Faeries or Slither Blade . It's a little slower but helps to save your counterspells for things other than removal. Also, Sigil of Sleep might be an interesting alternative to Hidden Strings depending on what you're up against. it does make Delver of Secrets Flip harder to flip though. On the other side of things, Mutagenic Growth is a free instant that could push some extra damage.

Second on Blossoming Defense over Snakeskin Veil . The +1/+1 counter seems nice, but infect wants to win now, not two turns later. Same with Distortion Strike , especially with rebound, its great to get that myr or elf through. The Noble Hierarch are a lot more helpful then you think, so grab them first. Become Immense is a great finisher, but as was said above, you need fetches. In that same vein, if you're running fetches you will want the Breeding Pool to go with them. I'm not sure how much you are planning on putting into the deck, but the off color fetches with Windswept Heath and Flooded Strand could work well. If you want another two color land option, Waterlogged Grove is great, especially since you generally don't care about your own life total. Something spicy you can test is Charge Through . As an instant speed cantrip that allows you to push damage through, its a nice option on color. I'd also think about cutting the sideboard Invisible Stalker for Dismember so you have some removal.
Always glad to see someone else building infect, +1

YES! I built an Edric, Spymaster of Trest deck with only commons and uncommon creatures that were small and hard to block. Cards like Faerie Seer , Slither Blade , and Invisible Stalker make some great card draw, and your wincons can be things like Overrun and Triumph of the Hordes . Throw in some non-rare counterspells like Counterspell and Arcane Denial and you're off to the races.

I don't understand how Battlefield Thaumaturge is benefitting this deck, unless you just want the hexproof (so wouldn't a hexproof creature be better?). Most of your creature-targeting spells cost only 1 blue, so the discount doesn't help, unless I'm missing something, which I could be. Would Invisible Stalker be better in that slot? or Karfell Harbinger ? or Surrakar Spellblade ?

I'd start by identifying what you want the main goal of your deck to be. I see two main ideas here that could be built around.
The first is dealing unblocked damage by disincentivizing blocks with deathtouch. Darkblade Agent , Eternal of Harsh Truths , Graveblade Marauder , and maybe Blightsteel Colossus (with enough reanimation) fit this archetype. Because of the two "blade" cards, there is some overlap with the second archetype which I'll cover next (and if you keep them, cards like Notion Rain , Mission Briefing , Thought Erasure , and Discovery / Dispersal are likely to get more mileage than Divination or Secrets of the Golden City ), but there may be even better ways to profit from unblocked creatures. Curiosity enchantments like Curious Obsession , Sixth Sense , and Keen Sense are frequent accompaniments to the Invisible Stalker s and other bogles of the world, and Bident of Thassa is a strong option for those going wide. I like Quietus Spike as a sort of midway point between Basilisk Collar and Master of Cruelties in decks like these too. Other beaters to get in with could be Tomebound Lich , Oona's Blackguard , Dimir Cutpurse , Looter il-Kor , Shadowmage Infiltrator , Surrakar Spellblade , Wharf Infiltrator , or Virtus the Veiled if he's legal in whatever format this is for. More generic deathtouch synergy could include Hooded Blightfang , Viridian Longbow , Thornbite Staff , Psionic Gift enchantments, and any source of first strike. Finally, I like Cipher as a way to gain advantage from repeated attacks, so maybe a Hidden Strings or Paranoid Delusions could come in handy.
The second main idea is to stack the graveyard(s) with as many creatures as possible to extract value from Undergrowth and similar mechanics. Avatar of Woe , Lotleth Giant , Trepanation Blade , Teferi's Tutelage , and some of your Disentomb effects fit here. Major threats in these kinds of decks include Wight of Precinct Six , Jace's Phantasm , Consuming Aberration , Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker , Fleet Swallower , Nemesis of Reason , Bonehoard , Mortivore , and Nighthowler . If you want to focus on your own graveyard, green is a great color to dip into as I alluded to earlier. Ghoultree , Boneyard Wurm , Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , Splinterfright , Nyx Weaver , Nemesis of Mortals , Spider Spawning , and Kessig Cagebreakers are just some of the tools you get access to. Golgari is also the king of Undergrowth, so Hatchery Spider , Izoni, Thousand-Eyed , Molderhulk , Rhizome Lurcher / Undergrowth Scavenger , Kraul Harpooner , and Necrotic Wound are on the table. If milling your opponents is more your thing, some staples to consider are Thought Scour , Sphinx's Tutelage , Drown in the Loch , Traumatize , Fraying Sanity , and the crab duo. Jace's Erasure , Psychic Corrosion , and the Tutelage pair benefit the most from other draw synergy, and Visions of Beyond is an obvious inclusion if that's the route you take. Either way, I'd cut down to only the most efficient of your reanimate to hand cards and the like since you don't want to be stuck with a fist full of them and no creatures in the graveyard to target. Speaking of cuts, for maximum power, it's usually correct to play as close to the 60 card minimum as possible. Picking a single strategy to hone in on should make it easier to whittle down to the most important 60 in the deck.
If you have questions, let me know. Good luck with your build!
