    Original Infect thread: http://www.mtgthesource.com/forums/s...232-U-G-infect

    I. Overview

    UG Infect is based on the Infect mechanic, first introduced in the Scars of Mirrodin Block that focuses on giving the opponent 10 poison counters to win the game. It is an aggro-combo deck that utilizes small creatures with Infect and pump spells to win, which can happen as fast as the second turn. The creatures in the deck are all 1/1, that you're trying to pump with spells and exalted triggers. While it can play the long game if needed, the deck is aiming to kill as quickly as possible. We do this by playing the most efficient pump spells available to us.

    The aggro part of the deck mostly comes from green spells: all pump spells and (almost) all creatures are green. Blue makes sure we have a fighting chance to combo and to protect our small (vulnerable) creatures. The deck does contain blue creatures and also green provides some interactions to provide protection.

    Poison counters have existed in Magic since the Legends expansion, although only two cards where printed that actually used them: Pit Scorpion and Serpent Generator. While those cards have never seen competitive play, a few more cards with poison counters have been printed in The Dark expansion set and the Mirage block. In the Time Spiral block, the poisonous mechanic was introduced, but was mostly used in casual or rogue Sliver decks in the form of Virulent Sliver as an alternative win condition. The Homelands expansion has the only card that gets rid of poison counters: Leeches. Finally, when Scars of Mirrodin block got printed, Legacy received the tools necessary to start playing this wonderful mechanic.

    One of the most notable players of this deck is Tom Ross, who won the SCG Invitational on 8/29/2014.

    III. Card Choices

    Creatures
    Blighted Agent: Our only creature that does not care about the creatures of your opponent. This creature is a must-answer for most fair decks.
    Glistener Elf: Simple 1/1 Infecter that enables our turn two wins.
    Noble Hierarch: Noble Hierarch has quickly been adopted as 4-of in this deck, since it's amazing. It accelerates our mana development, allowing us to play more pump spells and it pumps our infecters, while also adding protection against Liliana of the Veil.

    Pump Spells
    Berserk: Berserk is one of the most important pump spells in the deck, but only powerful in combination with another pump spell. It gives our creature trample and doubles the creature's power. It also doubles as a removal spell of your opponent's creatures. This cards was actually banned in Legacy from 1994 to 2003!
    Invigorate: Invigorate is our most efficient pump spell, since we can cast it for free. It gives our creature +4/+4 and our opponent 3 life which we do not care about.
    Vines of Vastwood: Vines can give our creature +4/+4, but also often is used as protection spell for our creature in response to a removal spell. It can also be used to prevent an opponent from equipping his own creature. Remember that Vines does not actually give hexproof, but protection from spells or abilities your opponents control.
    Become Immense: BI can pump your creature to a 7/7 for a single mana. The Delve on the card is quite easy to achieve, and even when you're not able to delve 6, giving your creature this kind of boost is still amazing for 2 or 3 mana in a single spell and is usually a must-answer for your opponent.

    Other Spells
    Brainstorm: Arguably the best Legacy staple. Draw three cards, put the two worst ones back and crack your fetchland to shuffle those two awful cards away.
    Ponder: Look at the three top cards, keep one or shuffle those three awful cards away.
    Force of Will: Important Legacy staple in most (all) blue decks. While most decks run a playset, we usually only run three.
    Daze: "free" counterspell for early removal.
    Gitaxian Probe: Mainly used to see if the coast is clear and making the deck "smaller".
    Crop Rotation: Sac your land in response to their Wasteland, sac your land to find Inkmoth Nexus if you don't have a creature, find your single Wasteland to take care of their problem land, get Dryad Arbor in response to Liliana's sac ability or find your Pendelhaven for that additional damage. Also finds Karakas or Bojuka Bog after sideboarding.
    Green Sun's Zenith: Find your creature or Dryad Arbor.

    Lands
    Dryad Arbor: Mainly used to negate Liliana's sac effect or surprise chump block. If you run Green Sun's Zenith, you can also use it as mana acceleration.
    Wasteland: Take care of that pesky land. Grove of the Burnwillows or Tabernacle are great targets.
    Inkmoth Nexus: For many decks the hardest card to interact with, especially decks that do not run Wasteland. Gets around Liliana of the Veil, Maelstrom Pulse and Abrupt Decay.
    Pendelhaven: All your creatures are 1/1, so this card really found a home to shine in. Don't forget that a 1/1 creature with Pendelhaven is a 5 turn clock. Add a Hierarch and you have a 4 turn clock!

    This is what I've been playing lately. I think crop rotation is too powerful to not be playing. Treasure cruise is powerful but the deck wants certain pieces, not card count. The dig through time in my list usually allows me to win the game that turn. You can also cast it mid combat after your pump spells have been countered (if you didn't have enough to delve with them on the stack) to find more. I've aggressively filled my yard with crop rotation finding a fetch and fetching. Sometimes I just use it as a test spell when I have the win in hand. Overall, I've been very pleased with the one of Dig Through Time but I would be hesitant to play more

    Re: [Primer/Deck] U/G Infect

    I find the UU for Dig Through Time is a bit prohibitive in a deck with 5 colorless lands, a Forest and a Pendelhaven.

    Treasure Cruise isn't just about card count, often times its about rebuilding resources. This deck doesn't need specific cards to win. We're content to grind it out and typically lose when we run out of resources. It's also much easier to play multiple Cruises in a game, because of the additional card count. Treasure Cruise feels a lot like Sylvan Library; it's tough to lose once it resolves.

    Also, Crop Rotation is quite good with the delve cards.

    I'm running 4 Treasure Cruise and it's stupid.

    Re: [Primer/Deck] U/G Infect

    The double UU is why I only run a singleton. The only cards I could cut for cruise would be the countermagic and I'd rather keep it to fight combo decks seeing as infect is strong against the midrange decks and doesn't need to try to out card them

    Re: [Primer/Deck] U/G Infect

    I haven't tried the Cruises yet, but I'm planning on testing them. Hardest thing to do is choosing which spells to cut. I guess I can cut a probe, but what else? Testing will (hopefully) give me the answers.

    Re: [Primer/Deck] U/G Infect

    Today I've tried in a local tournament (27 people) to cut green sun zenith and dryad for treasure cruise and seems good

    Re: [Primer/Deck] U/G Infect

    With everyone else jumping on board the Delve-cestral Recall bus, is the white splash version better now because it has Rest In Peace? Blanking your opponents goyfs and Treasure Cruise's seems pretty good. That's a potential 4-8 cards in their deck that now do nothing.

    That was my logic for starting off with the white splash. The Atlanta open in late November will be my first tournament with the deck

    Re: [Primer/Deck] U/G Infect

    before khans i was running maindeck 3 needles, and giving me success over a meta filled with sfms/jittes/wastelands
    last week where i top 8ed, i tested 1 cruise main and i think i wanted more..
    last sunday when i 4-0ed a small tourney, 2 cruises was the difference... gave me my much needed boosts mid game. TC is just very good here! especially with crop rots coz it fills our GY early..

    that's why i cut number of probes over croprots, giving us an EOT inkmoth or tapping a pendel and searching for another pendel vs forked bolts or zealous is insanely good!

    my list:
    19 lands (1forest/8fetches/2pendels/4trops/4inkmoths)
    12 crits (4nobles/4blighteds/4glisteners)
    29 spells (4 each of fows/vines/invigorates/bstorms....2 probes/2tc/2croprots/2berserks/2needles...3dazes

    the only matchup i worry bout are decks with grims/jittes/reanimators...i added another copy of berserk for my unfair matchup, coz im confident i can go faster vs them.
    maindeck needle was a bonus too vs SnTs, and probing then needling fetches are a bonus too! i will look for another spot to include back the 3rd copy.

    helpers:
    2 beb/2pierces/2necropedes/2surgicals/2tormods/1naturalize/1claim/2grips/1berserk

    didnt carry any creature hate, and my artifact hate are variables so i have lots of outs vs a resolved chalice 1.

    Re: [Primer/Deck] U/G Infect

    I'm reading the recent Tom Ross SCG article where he goes into side boarding. It is super helpful but I'm having trouble with the one aspect he doesn't cover, what to take out. Anyone have some insight there? Especially with the white splash list. I am for sure not playing my SB optimally right now.

    Re: [Primer/Deck] U/G Infect

    Hello, I'm new with UG infect. Yesterday I played this deck for the first time at tournament, went 3:1, beat ur delver, bug delver, ant and loose to dark maverick due to budget, greed and misplay.

    decklist:

    19 lands
    ---------
    2x pendell
    8x fetch
    4x trop
    1x forest
    4x inkmoth

    12 creatures
    ------------
    4x agent
    4x noble
    4x glistener

    29 noncreature spells
    --------------------
    1x pierce
    4x fow
    3x daze
    2x crop rot
    3x ponder
    4x brainstorm
    2x gitaxian probe
    2x become immense (will be berserk)
    4x invigorate
    4x vines of vastwood

    sb:
    3x pierce
    3x needle
    1x wasteland
    1x bojuka bog
    2x surgical
    1x krosan grip
    2x natures claim
    2x submerge

    Immense won me one game where berserk would not, but also loose one game to resolved teeg with immense in hand, card is not bad, but I would prefer 2x berserk for more explosive hands and would like to play some treasure cruises too. Still not sure about treasure cruise in this deck, read this: http://www.reddit.com/r/MTGLegacy/co...easure_cruise/

    "[]Youtube_Money
    I won an IQ last weekend playing UG Infect with 3 Treasure Cruise main and the fourth in the sideboard.

    Long story short, the card is NOT GOOD in Infect. I cast it one time in 6 played rounds, and it was Force'd. I also pitched it to Force once. I essentially boarded them out every game I could and replaced them with the cheap interactive spells I had cut for them.

    I still think Treasure Cruise is the most important card to hit the format since DRS and Decay. It seems excellent in many flavors of Delver and Stoneblade. I'm still very high on the card, though I most likely won't play it in Infect ever again.

    I agree with this. However, while a stoneblade deck with it would be good, there's little reason to bother with the slower SFM plan when you can just play Delver and bash.

    Yeah, I would definitely not put it into my U/G Infect deck. It's just far too slow."

    Re: [Primer/Deck] U/G Infect

    I was a fan of Dig Through Time as a one of until recently. I was running a dig, 3 probes, and a ponder. I decided to cut the dig and a probe for 2 more ponders and it's been great

    Re: [Primer/Deck] U/G Infect

    I am trying out three Treasure Cruise in the deck and it's been mostly positive. On one hand if we're setting up for the fast kill it doesn't do too much and this deck doesn't fill the graveyard very quickly if things are going well. It has definitely saved me a few times in the grindier games, though. Also a lot of the time in the grindy games where they manage to kill a few of our guys I end up with a lot of lands and can Cruise without delving the full seven. Maybe two is the right number but I really can't imagine that zero of Cruise/Dig is correct.

    As far as Cruise vs. Dig goes I'm going to going to replace two of the cruises with Dig Through Time and see how it feels. Whiffing on Cruise when looking for a pump spell is pretty bad.

    Here is my current list. I have kept the Crop Rotation package for flexibility and because it helps to fill the graveyard quickly. I am interested in trying the white splash but I don't think I'd bring the Rest in Peace in vs. non-BUG tempo decks. I think we should be trying to outrace and out-maneuver UR Delver instead of turning off their Cruises. They still have plenty of cantrips, removal and speed if we manage to blank those four cards.

    * 19 lands
    1 - Forest
    3 - Tropical Island
    9 - Green Fetches
    4- Inkmoth Nexus
    2 - Pendelhaven

    * 12 creatures
    4 - Glistener Elf
    4 - Blighted Agent
    4 - Noble Hierarch

    * 29 spells
    3 - Gitaxian Probe
    1 - Ponder
    4 - Brainstorm
    3 - Treasure Cruise
    3 - Daze
    2 - Force of Will
    1 - Spell Pierce
    2 - Crop Rotation
    4 - Invigorate
    4 - Vines of Vastwood
    2 - Berserk

    * sideboard
    1 - Bojuka Bog
    1 - Wasteland
    1 - Blue Elemental Blast
    1 - Flusterstorm
    1 - Piracy Charm
    1 - Spell Pierce
    1 - Nature's Claim
    1 - Null Rod
    1 - Submerge
    2 - Krosan Grip
    2 - Necropede
    2 - Force of Will

    I would love to get more permission in the maindeck but I'm not sure what to cut. Daze is great but even another Force might be nice to have in the main.

    Re: [Primer/Deck] U/G Infect

    last sat where i run 3 TC main, 11 games total and all it did significantly was to be fow pitched...
    with the rise of urcruise (forked bolts) and meta will pack hate vs 1 toughness hordes.. uginfect will definitely be affected.
    the game plan is to go off early, by the time we Tcruise, the game state should already have a clear view if we'll win or lose.

    decided to cut number of cruises for more relevant spells i can execute early on..
    (i'll test this list further this weekend before the major tourney on Nov16)

    crits (12)
    4 each = nobles, blighteds, glisteners

    lands (19) i like the 9 fetch/3 trops posted ^, and i will try that
    4 inkmoths/4trops/1 forest/ 2 pendels (mvp vs forked bolts, zealous, toxic) 8 fetches

    spells (29)

    4 fows
    4 dazes (loaded counters for more crit protection/connect early with invi/berserk/defense vs opposing combo decks
    4 bstorms
    1 treasure cruise
    1 ponder
    2 probes
    2 crop rots (my favorite card in this deck!)

    4 invigorates
    4 vines
    2 berserks
    1 groundswell (was the 3rd berserk, but sometimes i really like that addtional pump, especially crit toughness pump)

    SB
    2 kgrips
    1 naturalize (i dont carry claim, as it has no app vs cbtop/chalices for 1...might switch this to a 3rd grip
    2 surgicals
    1 tormods
    1 relic progenitus
    1 mizzium skin
    2 bebs
    1 pithing needle
    1 necropede
    1 sylvan lib
    2 pierces

    Re: [Primer/Deck] U/G Infect

    Hi,

    I'm fairly new to Legacy, but I'm going to put up my sideboarding list for this deck. I use Brad Nelson's deck, found here: http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles...ect-2014-09-19

    Any help/advice/insight would be great.

    My biggest questions with sideboarding are a) when to side out Force of Will. Should I always be leaving in some number? b) Am I siding out Crop Rotation too much?
    After getting recommendations, maybe we can fix this list and post it? Also, does anyone know Brad Nelson and want to direct him here? That would be amazing!

    UR Delver

    +1 Krosan Grip (I bring this in for Blood Moon and go up to 2 if I see it. Also good against Needle)
    +1 Spellskite
    +2 Blue Elemental Blast
    +1 Sylvan Library
    +1 Flusterstorm

    -3 Force of Will
    -2 Crop Rotation
    -1 Glistener Elf

    Does anyone side in Sylvan Library here (or against all Delver variants), as Delver is the control player?

    Re: [Primer/Deck] U/G Infect

    Unless Treasure Cruise will be banned, I think UG infect is almost unplayable in today's meta. We have negative matchup against UR delver, and sideboard strategy against young pyromancer is very effective against us. Every one is playing cards like forked bolt, grim lavamacer, darkblast, jitte, blood moon, golgari charm etc.
    Im definitely happy, that I didnt purchase my berserks yet.

    What is your experience?
