Thank you for the ideas.
I have some of the Kor Outfitter - I had already been thinking to swap out the Ethercaste. I liked them because they were another artifact creature like the Esper Sentinel and could be immune to both Archmage's Charm and Wrenn and Six, and I'm not really a fan of the Esper Sentinel anyway.
I had been contemplating dropping either the Ethercaste Knight or Esper Sentinel and adding in the Kor Outfitter.
I'll think on the Godsend and also Argentum Armor also. 3 games last night I was left with an Argentum Armor in my hand that I never played.

your white-producing land-count feels really low - particularly as Kor Outfitter needs 2-pips… currently you need to draw through something like 23ish cards to on-average get 2-pips of white, which is never going to happen in a game.
You should always aim to get a deck down to 60 cards. 68 is a lot over this, and will lead to consistency issues, as well as meaning you’ll miss a lot more land drops.

You might also like the inclusion of Kor Outfitter - it's not as strong a card as the Paladin, but it's always guaranteed to go off.

Thanks for the comment. I'm definitely digging Colossus Hammer. If I'm using equipment/artifacts I'd like something such as Kor Outfitter to avoid that massive equip cost (then again, it's looking quite rampy so maybe that's not necessary). Splashing white looks like a strong possibility if I'm taking the deck in this direction, because that would also give me access to all the white enchantments.
TheChaosVault on Red Equip

I would recommend cutting the Mines for artifact lands, unfortunately. The deck seemed to average a turn 5 win when goldfishing, and the Mines entering tapped hurt a lot more than the dwarf tokens helped. Toll Collector seemed remarkably bad, since it was usually just better to jam Bonesplitters on a Champion or Gaveleer and win quickly. Cathar's Shield felt pretty bad if it wasn't being grabbed by Toll Collector, but then again I drew it a disproportionate amount of the time (by comparison, I never drew Bone Saw), so it might just be my draw luck.
I would recommend Viashino Slaughtermaster in the place of the Toll Collector as a sort of second Champion, and Apostle's Blessing in the place of Shield, because this deck is full of creatures that are just asking to get bolted. If you're willing to branch out into white, you could try Resolute Strike or Kor Outfitter , but I'm not quite sure how you'd fit those in.
That being said, most of this information comes from just goldfishing, so do take it with a grain of salt.

Some budget options from us:
- Blackblade Reforged: can make an equipped creature ridiculously powerful.
- Colossus Hammer: high equip cost to make something very strong but there are ways around that (like Kor Outfitter, Brass Squire).
- King of the Pride: nice boost to all cats Kemba generates.
- Raksha Golden Cub: wonderful cat booster that fits well into the deck.
- Stoneforge Masterwork: cheap equipment that boosts a great deal.
In case you're interested, please have a look at our Kemba deck for more ideas.

TheVectornaut on Searing Infection

Most of my experience with infect comes from playing simic, but I have played the mechanic in all 5 colors. In terms of power, green is the most effective color to play by a very VERY large margin. You get access to the best infect creature in Glistener Elf (along with the slower and safer option of Blight Mamba), you get trample sources to push through damage with Ichorclaw Myr such as Rancor, Predator's Strike, and Larger Than Life, you get protection bundled with buffs in the form of Vines of Vastwood, Ranger's Guile, and Blossoming Defense, and you get the largest pool of very strong power boosts in the form of Mutagenic Growth, Invigorate, Scale Up, Might of Old Krosa, Berserk, Become Immense, Groundswell, Phytoburst, Noble Hierarch, and Pendelhaven. Since infect is an all-or-nothing sort of archetype, even when running the less aggressive versions, the most important characteristics that you need are speed, protection, and evasion. Green offers two of those things in spades but can struggle with evasion. This is why blue is generally considered the next best color to run. You get the insane threat of Blighted Agent, unblockable buffs with Distortion Strike and Aqueous Form, and protection from spells via Spell Pierce, Dispel, Turn Aside, and the odd Spellskite. Black is the next best. Plague Stinger's flying isn't as good as the unblockable on a Blighted Agent but it's still very powerful evasion as illustrated by the ubiquity of Inkmoth Nexus in every non-budget infect list ever made. Black also nets useful control tools like Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, Fatal Push, Dismember, and Assassin's Trophy. White was considered the worst infect color for a very long time since its best option (Apostle's Blessing) can be used in any deck, but the recent introduction of Giver of Runes has breathed some life back into the color. Additionally, I've seen a lot of equipment lists popping up that use Colossus Hammer, Kor Duelist, Sigarda's Aid, and Kor Outfitter to see some success. Unfortunately, that leaves red as the current worst color to run in infect. It has some decent buffs but they pale in comparison to green's offerings. The result is that most red infect decks rely on gimmicks like using Razor Swine's first strike to wither enemy creatures, generating infinite mana to pump into an unblocked Ogre Menial, or putting Phyresis on something like a Spikeshot Elder to bypass combat altogether. Your instant tricks definitely fall in this category. That's not necessarily a bad thing though. If your meta is casual enough, red should still work and it will be much more interesting to play with / fun to play against than a more traditional deck. How competitive you want to be is always up to you.
To answer your specific questions, I would probably start by cutting a few creatures. Most lists run about 12 infect sources (and that's including a playset of Inkmoth Nexus). With Hand of the Praetors on your top end, running 16-20 isn't that unreasonable, at least as long as all of them are good. Infect creatures usually become "bad" when they cost more than 2. That's why I wouldn't usually recommend running Ichor Rats or Septic Rats. Both Necropede and Plague Myr are perfectly acceptable inclusions with very similar power levels. They'll rarely be better than Plague Stinger or Ichorclaw Myr but that's okay if you just want more guys to play. As for Vector Asp, it's honestly a pretty bad choice in most circumstances. While you usually won't need to activate it more than 2 or 3 times to win the game, that mana would be better spent elsewhere, and it doesn't even trigger the Hand. However, given the choice of it and a 3-drop, I'd probably take the snake, especially since it would be your only proactive play on turn 1 (barring the inclusion of Glistener Elf or Inkmoths). Better though would just be to run neither and invest in more buff spells to assist in combat and trigger Livewire Lash. I do like the idea of those spells having cycling in theory, but in practice, the mana needed to cycle can short you of the resources needed to close out the game. Plus, cycling spells tend to cost more to account for the added ability. Cycling lands on the other hand should be fine as long as they come in untapped, although it looks like that only describes Ash Barrens and Blasted Landscape. Just like with creatures, I wouldn't run any spells that cost more than 2 unless they can win you the game like Soul's Fire can. This will also allow you to run 20 lands or fewer, opening up even more slots for gas. I apologize if I'm repeating myself about the low-cost-high-speed thing but that is basically the reason the infect mechanic exists. If you prefer a slow and more controlling style, Rakdos wither built around Necroskitter is a fun option that has some overlap with infect.
