Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

3 months ago

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.

Woodfall Primus to combo with Renata, Called to the Hunt

Undergrowth Champion because he is also very VERY resilient in this deck

Dense Foliage is great protection for your creatures, but you'd have to see if this card has will interfere with any creatures that "move" or have "graft" like abilities, be aware that this card is symmetrical with the whole board however and not just your side, in that case i'd recommend Asceticism

cards like Phyrexian Swarmlord , Spinebiter , and Putrefax sound right up your alley.

to help your creatures get through as well, consider Bellowing Tanglewurm

+1 my dude! @your reddit post,

More lands imo. Also more big ramp... seems like Vorinclex is a big target for removal, so ramping up to 15+ mana a turn seems like the way to go.

I think the biggest problem is that you're splitting themes and trying to jam infect. A lot of seemingly powerful cards don't have synergy with the rest of the deck. Only ~12 cards directly create +1/+1 counters. So (eg.) Hardened Scales really does nothing.

...Cut incidental Infect:

-1Viridian Corrupter, -1Spinebiter

-1Phyrexian Swarmlord... I love this card but, even when you're all in on infect it isn't that good...

(I think the other infect cards with 5+ power as soft, 2-card combos with your commmander are viable).

...Cut fatties with no evasion:

-1Renata, Called to the Hunt... if you're interested in playing "go-wide + pump" this could be good, but not better than Bloodspore Thrinax

-1Rampaging Baloths... incidental 4/4s aren't worthwhile

-1Crowned Ceratok... +1Champion of Lambholt

-1Ulvenwald Hydra... no synergy

-1Primordial Hydra... +1Managorger Hydra

When choosing cards ask yourself: (1) Does it work with my commander? (2) Does it work with my theme? (3) Is it strong enough with no synergy to play 1v3? (eg. Rampant Growth, Sylvan Library, etc.)

Happy brewing!

Aside from very minor infect damage, and a few planes-walkers there is no need to proliferate. I highly suggest taking out some counterspells and a few removal spells. Add a lot more infect cards. Why? Because I count 6 ways to deal infect damage in your 100 card deck. Let's pretend your opponent has removal as well, and can deal with 6 threats; fairly easy task is it not? Suggestions: Blackcleave Goblin, Ichor Rats, Phyresis, Spinebiter, Phyrexian Swarmlord There are so many options. I highly suggest you build more ways to win in your deck. Good luck.

How can you not have Spinebiter in this?

that makes sense and is generally true but with infect you won't have enough creatures or board presence to keep it competitive in the late game unless you get lucky with near perfect draws. If you want to add in a few late game cards, you could splash black to throw in a Spinebiter Phyrexian Swarmlord or Phyrexian Juggernaut, and add a few more blight mambas plus a Plague Stinger to get you to the late game, but you would have to sacrifice a few buff cards. this would give you a late game threat but you would be less likely to get an early win. In my opinion not the best tradeoff for infect, a shell that succeeds by being fast.
