Hi firesparker, Infect is more difficult in Multiplayer Games. I played a Atraxa Build with Infect for 2 Mounths. Your biggest Problem are your Opponents and there know what you play.
I try to give your my suggestion.
- Try to play Blightsteel Colossus over some Cheat-in Cards like Show and Tell , Defense of the Heart or maybe Quicksilver Amulet .
Take more focus on Poliferate
Use dirty Cards like Tainted Strike for take out someone if an Opponents attacks with a Fattie.
Putrefax Awesome Dude, maybe play with Reanimate/Regroth/Eternal Wittness
Phyrexian Hydra Fattie
Master Biomancer push your Creatures
Tezzeret's Gambit Carddraw + Poliferate
Triumph of the Hordes Overrun
Contagion Engine Poliferate but high Cmc, depending on your Meta.
Evolution Sage Landdrops with benefits
Craterhoof Behemoth Value Finisher if you had this Budget.
Grafted Exoskeleton also good, but expensive (CMC)
Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Must have.
Mostly important is your Manabase and Mana-Rocks.
You will play fast as possible. Cut Lands that enters tapped.
Play Atraxa just you can protect her. Abuse her Lifelink every Combat and cut Cards like Fog ...
Your opponents do not want to attack you if Atraxa is online -> Deathtouch.
Maybe you need more Carddraw, Topdeck-Control:
If you build more around +1/+1 Counters with Master Biomancer -> Herald of Secret Streams
BUT, i think your Build is also good with more focus on poliferate.

Mother of Runes seems like a strict upgrade, but why not both?!
Also I just really like Putrefax , and this is certainly an excuse to play the card.

triproberts12 Thanks for advice. While I've rolled the deck out last time, I was intended to update it with a new cards I've managed to get, but later I forgot. Now it should be updated. By sheer luck got two shocks in draft. Now working on getting the third one. Now there are only 33 lands. Can't remember when exactly, but I'll add more lands later. Also I'll update maybeboard with more cards, that I have in my posession.
Talking about those self-milling cards, I thought about them, but I allways do it with an unease. I can reliably use only creature cards from the graveyard. And often I'm getting my counterspells, manarocks, enchantments, everything but creatures. Don't really know, what to do with it, apart from putting a lot of looting creatures instead of some non-creature card-draw. One of the main problems is, indeed, a gameplan of "I'll mill(maybe) some opponents, hijack some good creature from their graveyard(maybe) and we'll see from there". Working on acquiring Putrefax (nobody in my lgs carries one in binder, because it's a bulk) and doing fast infect/commander damage with it, Gaea's Revenge and such. But lately started to thinking about using Tasigur instead of Mimeoplasm for a while.

To go with the infect/-counters theme you could put Black Sun's Zenith in there, along with the legendary woman.... Whose name escapes.... Who stops you getting negative counters. Also, to maybe help even the playing field would it be helpful to have something like a Silent Arbiter in there. Also, a Mimic Vat could be helpful with the Ichor Rats, or maybe add a Putrefax in there? Just ideas

KayneMarco is that because he basically tutors for ezuri at any time?
ZendikariWol I absolutely agree with your feelings toward infect as a strategy. That being said I do have a soft spot for a bit of infect in some of my decks, whether it be Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon or Putrefax. I absolutely love your Buttermilk Pancakes build though. I did change out most of the infect-y creatures in favor of a a build like yours, but I'm leaving in a couple like Plague Myr, Spinebiter, and Triumph of the Hordes. Aluren was there to combo with Shrieking Drake for infinite counters on Ezuri. How many cards with triggered abilities would warrant the inclusion of Panharmonicon?

I do happen yo own most of these cards. I very much like the idea of swinging with a 10/8 double striking Putrefax. And Elvish Piper or Quicksilver Amulet could serve as surprise block droppers. Unfortunately I don't own Sneak Attack or Ghalta, Primal Hunger. I definitely want them in here though. Will try to squeeze some of these in here. Thanks for the feedback.
