( can be paid with either or 2 life.)
Draw two cards, then proliferate. (You choose any number of permanents and/or players with counters on them, then give each another counter of a kind already there.)
Tezzeret's Gambit Discussion
7 hours ago
notes: you have a lot of small creatures that you have to waste turns on buffing, you have a lot of card draw and not a lot of ways to keep all those cards, you have a lot of small synergies with merfolk/snake, but not enough to warrant having them IMO, could be better suited more focused on winning. cuts: Trollbred Guardian , Overrun , River Sneak , Experiment One , Coiling Oracle , Patagia Viper , Triton Shorestalker , Jace's Ingenuity , Ohran Viper , Verdant Confluence , Ezuri's Predation adds: Cultivator of Blades , Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury , Triumph of the Hordes , Reliquary Tower , Rancor , Doubling Season , Awakening Zone / From Beyond , Wirewood Symbiote , Hadana's Climb Flip, Sudden Substitution , Devoted Druid , Temur Sabertooth , Bramble Sovereign , Thrummingbird , Tezzeret's Gambit , Faerie Artisans , Stubborn Denial

Sorry, haven't checked this site in a while. Time to go through the mentions
@Texudo_1809 Yeah isorev is not that great. But more importantly, I want to be really clear on one point: things like Laboratory Maniac are totally unnecessary for this deck. You don't need it. When you have your whole deck in your hand, there are SO many things that win you the game. Lab Man is just a dead slot in a deck that can't afford dead slots.
@Overlordofdarkness It's not that great. At 5 mana it doesn't do enough; if it could net mana then we'd be in business, but best case scenario (notwithstanding high tide turns) it is mana neutral, and we already have Tezzeret's Gambit and Pirate's Pillage which are better cards to cast with 3 experience counters. (the former is mana neutral, the latter nets mana)
@deesoff Not a bad card thanks to PiF. Honestly I should consider it! Makes the budget a bit tight. I'd definitely add it to the upgrades section at a minimum.

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.

Brainstorm - Pumps our Lorecale Coatl by +6/+6 (Net zero cards)
Chart a Course - Pumps our Lorecale Coatl by +4/+4 (Net 1 or 2 cards)
Tezzeret's Gambit - Pumps our Lorecale Coatl by +6/+6 and Stonecoil Serpent by +2/+2 (Net 2 cards)
Perhaps worth noting that Sakura-Tribe Elder does have a shuffle effect, which is nice when topping cards you don't want with Brainstorm.

What are your thoughts on the card draw spells? I'm running three of each, because they seem very situational. We have Brainstorm which is , but doesn't actually net us any additional cards. We have Chart a Course which is and nets us either 1 or 2 cards. Finally, we have Tezzeret's Gambit which is which nets us 2 cards, plus pumps our snakes. I wish I was more sure any one was better then the others.

I mean this in the kindest way: I think you're packing too many big guns without enough ramp and utility. I don't think 4 ramp spells, especially Legendary ones, are sufficient to crank out creatures fast enough, let alone protect them and disrupt opponents.
Oran-Rief, the Vastwood seems like a good fit here, as does Utopia Sprawl . And you really can't go wrong with Birds of Paradise , either, but Llanowar Elves or Elvish Mystic will work just was well. I'd encourage you to run at least 6x ramp spells. I'm speaking from my experience trying to build Elf Warrior Tribal, mono-green +1/+1 counters, mono-white +1/+1 counters, Selesnya +1/+1 counters, and Simic +1/+1 counters. In each case, speed and resiliency have been the major factors determining the deck's success or failure. The best of all of those, incidently, is mono-white +1/+1 counters, because it's the fastest, and because white offers so many useful spells at low CMCs. All that said, there are a ton of spells that are relevant here and I wish you the very best of luck in finding a winning assemblage.
So here's a list of spells of varying cost that might be helpful: Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Hunger of the Howlpack , Inspiring Call , Simic Ascendancy , Hydroid Krasis , Tezzeret's Gambit , Incubation Druid , Vinelasher Kudzu , Chasm Skulker , Servant of the Scale , Arcane Adaptation , Metallic Mimic , Tuskguard Captain , Vines of Vastwood , Heroic Intervention , Incubation / Incongruity , Beast Within , Pongify , Turn to Frog , Fog , Harmonize , Return to Nature , Field of Ruin , Scavenger Grounds , Muddle the Mixture , Negate , Cyclonic Rift , Vapor Snag

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.
Budget lands to consider adding:
- Command Tower : reprinted in Commander 2019 (C19), one of the best lands for multicolored Commander decks.
- Seaside Citadel : Bant Tri-land.
- Yavimaya Coast : reprinted in C19.
- Exotic Orchard : reprinted in C19.
- Ash Barrens : reprinted in C19.
- Prairie Stream : reprinted in C19.
- Canopy Vista
- Opal Palace
The lands that have been reprinted in C19 will decrease in price over the next month.
Upgrades to consider:
- Forgotten Ancient > Angel of Deliverance
- Managorger Hydra > Resplendent Griffin
- Cathars' Crusade > Elite Scaleguard or Cultivator of Blades
- Sol Ring > Teyo, the Shieldmage
- Good-Fortune Unicorn > New Horizons
- Thrummingbird > Shanna, Sisay's Legacy
- Grateful Apparition > Storm Fleet Aerialist
- Farseek > Nissa's Pilgrimage
- Inspiring Call > Ojutai's Command
- Brainstorm > Attune with Aether
- Ponder > Broken Bond
- Unbreakable Formation > Assure / Assemble
- Tezzeret's Gambit > Courage in Crisis
Many of these suggestions are repeatable sources of proliferate or counters. Ancient and Managorger are good with a counters theme because they get counters as you and your opponents cast spells. In multiplayer Commander these cards if not dealt with can get out of hand very fast especially Managorger because it has trample. Farseek can search for a dual land: Temple Garden , Irrigated Farmland or Scattered Groves . Being able to land ramp with a dual is helpful when playing three colors and wanting to be able to make turn three.
