orenrahat: i actually took Viral Drake out to make room for other stuff. both cards have activated abilities. i don't want my loyalty generating spells to be reliant on an opponent attacking me.

Also I noticed you have Contagion Engine, Viral Drake does something similar with the advantage of an activated ability, albeit require 1 , so you activate as many times as you have the mana.

Than there's Mila, Crafty Companion  Flip which punish attacks on your planeswalker.

My apologies, if you are familiar with those cards.

Greetings Odric_Magnusson,

In response to your question of What Creatures would you put in? (that have infect) - based upon your current decklist and design the infect creatures I would recommend need to compliment your deck's +1/+1 counters matter subtheme and should be relatively threatening on their own. Therefore, I suggest:

  • Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon : This one is a bit of a no-brainer next to Hand of the Praetors . It has evasion, built in protection and haste. Skittles is a longtime favorite of mine, and is truly an infect staple in my opinion. This one is at the top of the list, without a doubt.

  • Viral Drake : This creature ties in with your deck's +1/+1 counters matter subtheme by serving as an excellent mana dump for proliferation triggers. On top of having infect, it also has evasion. A great pick in my opinion.

  • Ichor Rats : This creature serves as a means of getting poison counters on players when they have a Pillow Fort strategy online before you could get infect combat damage in. Additionally, it's a great recursion target if you can get multiple triggers of it's ETB effect.

  • Inkmoth Nexus : This is an honorable mention, but this land has served me well over many games. It has built in protection due to being a land and +1/+1 counters do not fall off of it when it stops being a creature. The icing on the cake is that it also has evasion.

That's it for my suggestions. Your list is pretty good, and definitely will make any opponent weary of you during any point in a game. +1 again! lol

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

2 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.

More ways to proliferate would add to the deck such as:

Among many others to build up your energy counters quicker.

Gravitational Shift and maybe Favorable Winds (I see them in Maybeboard. Just saying)

None of the Blue partners look that great. Are you looking to add a color? Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker gets huge fast, flies and would give you all kinds of birds to choose from. If you add Red with a different partner you could use Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer as a way to make extra flyers and tutor for Brudiclad as an artifact.
