raefgall on Infect & Proliferate

This looks like it could definitely be scary once it gets going. Very dedicated to its theme.

From a general construction sense, it could probably use a few less lands, a bit more ramp and card draw, and a few less cards on the top end (the mana curve leans high).

Some good mana staples that would help and fit the theme: Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, Everflowing Chalice, Astral Cornucopia, Solemn Simulacrum, Fertilid, Gyre Sage, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Incubation Druid, Rampant Growth

Since your goal is to get poison counters on ASAP (so that proliferate matters), stuff like Ichor Rats and Plague Stinger would be good additions. Grafted Exoskeleton and Phyresis can make it so some of your other creatures can contribute to the poison damage count. Viridian Corrupter and Relic Putrescence both give you a way to give poison counters while also serving as artifact removal of a sort.

For cards to potentially remove, there are a few that fit the theme, but may be harder to get the benefit from. Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Second Chance don't do too much for you. Door of Destinies doesn't really have a good tribe to name.

There is a sort of sacrifice sub-theme going on that doesn't feel like it fully pans out. The Arcbound creatures are on the expensive side and you don't have a ton of artifact creatures to move the counters onto. Plus, if they hit for regular damage, they're not going to contribute to your infect plan. Throne of Geth and Plaguemaw Beast give repeatable proliferate, but you don't have a ton of things that you want to sacrifice, or ways to get things back from the graveyard to recur them. Martyr for the Cause and Roalesk, Apex Hybrid are only really good if you get exactly Plaguemaw Beast.

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

StopShot on Infect gets to run Cavern …

It also provides more flexible color fixing for Plague Stinger as you can use the land as a black source. Might be good if you only want to run one or two copies without destroying your manabase over it.

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 ).

thank you. To answer your question: I might honestly just put Fynn in the 99 of some deck that runs deathtouch creatures instead, I'm thinking Jorn, God of Winter  Flip. I actually forgot to make the fynn deck hidden. If you are looking for infect, I suggest going Simic, Golgari or even Sultai. if you go Sultai and Don't want to go Voltron, you could go for Damia, Sage of Stone . just know, if you play infect, they will try to kill you first, which is why I personally don't have one myself. Seton druid tribal is one of my favorite decks along with my The Locust God deck and Edgar Markov . Winota, Joiner of Forces can also be really busted. I love that one too. the next deck I plan to do is Lathril, Blade of the Elves , I've already bought the precon and I am gonna test it out to see what works and what doesn't and upgrade accordingly. oh and in case you were wondering, other good infect commanders are the following: Ezuri, Claw of Progress and Volrath, the Shapestealer . Ezuri can make your Blighted Agent huge and kill someone with 1 or 2 hits by putting counters on it. in that deck you run all the blue and green infect creatures, scryfall is your friend. with Volrath, you want to be playing Evasive infect creatures that you then put a counter on a turn Volrath into, so again Blighted Agent is a very good card there. same with Phyrexian Crusader and Plague Stinger . The reason I broght up Damia, Sage of Stone is that she's just a really good value commander in sultai colors, she draws you cards, the other 2 kill faster.

HxC-Spazz on Monoblack Infect [Competitive/Primer]

Nice deck dude. I also play Mono Black Infect and i love Demonic Embrace on Phyrexian Crusader. It turns him into a 2 turns clock with evasion, and it's recursive. But i run no other creatures in my build and it's true that it's less impressive on a Plague Stinger or an Inkmoth Nexus...
