Tel-Jilad Fallen Discussion

Grafted Exoskeleton would work really well here. Karn's Bastion is pretty much a staple for any infect deck (Take that last part with a grain of salt). A good ol' Blightwidow or Cystbearer might be a nice addition. If you're willing to spend the money, a Blightsteel Colossus would be really nice. Tel-Jilad Fallen would work if you're playing against artifact decks. As for wincons, Triumph of the Hordes is a classic, but on a budget, Predatory Focus does the trick, too.
This deck looks pretty cool. I haven't seen many infect EDH decks so far, but this one looks decent. Good luck with it.

I like this deck, but I'd be a bit worried that there may not be enough ways to get around blockers in there, has that ever been a problem? Wirewood Herald could be used to search your library for a Taunting Elf (you're kind of lacking a way to sac it though), or alternatively, Shinen of Life's Roar is cheap and has the same ability. I also feel like Tel-Jilad Fallen is quite expensive and would probably prefer Blight Mamba or Ichorclaw Myr , although you do at least have some ramp, so it might be fine.

Tel-Jilad Fallen useful as a blocker if you turn attackers into artifacts on the swing if they have 1 blocker he can get through if you have a coating.

This deck is begging for Hardened Scales with all the counters going on. Id think about replacing Tel-Jilad Fallen with it because you're not really an infect deck, and a 4drop 3/1 doesnt really seem efficient. Just my two cents :)

@X_Animis_X: I'll hop over to your deck momentarily to take a look (:
@ticked-off-squirrel: Tel-Jilad Fallen is definitely relevant but for the interest of speed I'm not sure if he'd fit in this deck specifically. I can certainly see him in the sideboard of a blue/green control infect archetype. Thanks for the suggestion tho
@ecologicodin457: Yeah it seems mono green and blue/green are both really good. Still hard to say which is better though, since both have very strong creatures (Glistener Elf, Blight Mamba, Blighted Agent) and each archetype has their own way of getting the poison counters through (Trample with Vitality Charm, Predator's Strike, or unblockable with Aqueous Form).
@Scorprix: Thank you for the suggestion! I have no idea how I missed such a STRONG sideboard option for infect! 4x going in the sideboard for sure.

Make sure to have a united deck- so in this instance, you may want to focus more on artifacts, removing some of the Elvish Mystic and Elvish Archdruid for either infect or digs. You may want to include fetches if you have enough money, as they do help cycle your deck pretty cheaply. I would recommend taking out all copies of Tel-Jilad Fallen, as it is really heavy, and the bonus of protection from artifacts doesn't help too much. You can also add Creeping Corrosion and Sylvan Library- to help against artifact heavy decks and provide draw. Seems like an interesting idea- good luck!

if a creature has protection from artifacts (i.e. Tel-Jilad Fallen ) can it hold any kind of equipment?
