    If you are playing without paying there's no incentive for people to play it out. It happens to me all the time when I t1 a chalice. In other words, if you're not payin' their not playin' so don't take it too personally.

    Carrion call is for removal heavy matchups. Jund, junk, UW control ect.

    Kazu Negri put up his sideboard guide on twitter. You can find it over on reddit on r/infect.

    The only issue I see with the new knight vs rec sage is that rec sage is easier to cast under blood moon.

    The 4 claim and 2 corrupter sounds right if you expect a lot of harden scales affinity. Balista sucks, even more so with extra counters on it, and they can chump block for days.

    Hiya all,

    I'm going to finish humans here in a week or two and I was wondering if anyone had any tips or tricks they could share? I looked at the primer but it seems out of date.

    So the latest list to top 8 ran 3 boreal druids and no mind stones. What's everyone's take on it? Seems like it helps more with the early ramp while still protecting us from blood moon. Like mind stone, still not what ya hope to hit off of bbe. Also it seems like an easy kill target.

    New primer is up. Check it out and let me know what I'm missing in it.

    I'm going to slowly add in all of the articles about the deck and videos I can find over the next few days. The deck doesn't have too many variations, so extra cards and stuff isn't really a thing but I added a few anyways. I'll finish some of the formatting then too. Going to try and align all of my primers so they look the same.


    That's a great primer. Thank you for your hard work!

    Do we fit damping sphere at all in the sb?


    I Think it replaces crumble to dust.

    What are people’s sideboards looking like? Mine hasn’t been updated in a long time. I’m not sure if I still want nissa, voice of zendikar or what I would bring it in against.


    Here is an interesting article that talks about the subject:

    http://manadeprived.com/modern-infects-not-dead/

    Mine is similar but I run 2 dismember in the side and one less pulse due to the fact I still run a baby jace in the main.

    What is the humans match-up like for infect? Just try to race?


    I played against humans at the last gp in Seattle. You definitely want to race because it's a tough match up. They have a quick clock with disruption. Blighted is your best card in this match up. Thalia and mantis rider can make it hard to get inkmoth through and they have lots of blockers for the elf. Watch out for reflector mage as well. Post board they bring in izzit staticaster. I really liked having a noble out and a pendelhaven b/c it forces them to chump block and runs them out of steam.

    I've been thinking on Boreal too. Although I've not tried yet.
    Mana rocks are good, mostly the Stone because it "gives" a card... but in general are terrible BBE targets :/ So I'll to try out Oath of Nissa or Boreal (only next week... this weekend it's Standard at my local store).

    Basilisk Collar seems good... but against Jund? K-command is already good vs our deck and I can't give more attractive targets to my opponents :/
    Pulse of Murasa has been working very well for me vs discard and control decks... and it's good enough vs Burn and Scapeshift too. Anyone else have tried it?
    Being able to "return back" Gods, BBE, Thrun or a land (Field of Ruin is such a pain in the ***) and gain 6 life in instant speed is a "dream" against many decks.


    Really? I felt like k command is bad against our deck. It doesn't kill any of our relevant threats, so it's usually used for discard and getting a creature back.
    I know it sounds crazy but jund doesn't always play 3 k- commands in the main: as a matter of fact, some only run one and none in the side (which isn't to say that some don't still run 3). The thing is that they will tend to take out thier small removal (abrupt decay, bolt, and sometimes k command) because it's bad against our fatties and killing a mana dork doesn't help in a grindy game. They are going to bring in things like lily the last hope, damnation, and maelstrom pulse.

    Oath hasn't been as good at Stirrings late in the game (obviously), but is still very serviceable. It does grab a BBE! I like to use it first early since I'm probably just digging for a land or bird.

    Domri sounds like a more flexible Shapers' Sanctuary. It's probably very good, but what matchups is it actually helping in? Beast Within sounds interesting, but it's a little more control-ly for what I want to do maindeck. It is flexible enough to hit your own permanents, but I don't know what I'd do if I hit it off of a BBE on an empty board against blue decks.

    Keep in mind my deck is 22 lands, 4 mana dorks, and 2 mana rocks. That's 28 sources for mana with 4 sol lands for most of my creatures and only 2 fetchlands. With expensive creatures on the top end and 5 cards to dig for them, it's surprisingly resilient to Ponza and Blood Moon decks. Additionally, if I untap with endbringer, I end up using that mana up.

    I honestly haven't thought of the Gods too much. Rhonas can be cast with BBE or Reshaper, and gives creatures a trample & power boost effect that has been very, very good with Kessig Wolf Run. The problem is that Rhonas is not a land and doesn't attack immediately. Hazoret I'm a little more skeptical of since I rarely have a low hand total until very late in the game, when I'm grinding out with Endbringer(s) or World Breakers. If KWR is the equivalent of Rhonas, Hazoret seems like Sea Gate Ruins - just a little slow, but good for grinding if you ever get there. Hazoret is also about to receive a small nerf to PW damage with Dominaria.

    I think I want to replace World Breaker with Rhonas when I get one and see how it is. Oddly, the reach on WB can be relevant. I also want to replace the pithing needles with basilisk collars to also help the burn and wide-creature matchups.

    Thanks for the input!


    I think Rhonas is better than World Breaker but still not quite right for this deck. When I've played him he's done some fun blow out things (stealing a gurmag with obligator & swinging for exactly lethal with him felt super good). However, he is a poor top deck when yer board is empty and can suck to hit with bbe because bbe doesn't allow him to attack. I too am skeptical about Hazoret. Haven't tried Hazoret yet but I could see running him if you have a blood moon heavy meta but otherwise I think we could do better things turn 3/4.

    I've really love basilisk collar in this deck. It helps with burn and creature heavy strats and even things like jund. You opponent is a little less inclined to block a matter reshaper with their goyfs lol.

    I'm really interested in testing beast within! I like crumble and all but sometimes it feels too narrow for the space it takes up.

    Anyone considering Goyf in the main instead of Ooze? we want to be aggressive and i can see 2 or 3 goyfs being more of a aggressive game plan then bird/ooze/reshaper. Also my experience with Ooze in this list is that we dont often have 'spare' green mana to grow the ooze. Every turn we want to put creatures in play.

    I,m thinking of this list:
    4 Noble Hierarch
    3 Tarmogoyf
    3 Matter Reshaper
    4 Eldrazi Obligator
    4 Bloodbraid Elf
    4 Thought-Knot Seer
    4 Reality Smasher

    Spells
    2 Dismember
    4 Lightning Bolt
    4 Ancient Stirrings
    2 Mind Stone

    i also can see trimming 1 BBE for a Hazoret the Fervent all death cards you draw can be an extra 2 dmg.


    Not a fan of goyf in this deck. We lack fetches and discard, so we can end up with a bleh goyf that is just a 2/3. Heck, it even has a good chance of entering as an 0/1 creature. Scooze is always at least a 2/2 eats the graveyard, gains life (relevant for burn) ect. Personally I run 2 end bringers but to each their own.
