hmm yeah i guess you play Blackcleave Goblin and Trigon of Infestation just to keep things fair Razz
but seriously why do you play the goblin, i cant see a single valid reason?
And I somehow doubt that you ever have seen an active Fangren Marauder, cause this type of deck is predestinated for it.

I would change the following cards:
- Blackcleave Goblin
- 1 Trigon
- Blight Mamba
+ Marauder
+ Trigon of Infestation
+ Phyrexian Rager (early drop that replaces itself, or just all what your deck wants)

And to be perfect this deck lacks a Morbid Plunder

Great pool, terrible missbuild
The red in this pool is better than the green. Absolutly zero reason to play infect here. Skittles and Vatmother can just win without clogging your deck up with jank infect creatures and Trigons

The deck is prob good enough to not need the splash and if I was playing at a gp I'd prob cut the green cards for Resister and something else

1 Arc Trail
1 Fume Spitter
1 Galvanic Blast
1 Iron Myr
1 Trigon of Corruption
1 Vulshok Replica
1 Blisterstick Shaman
1 Burn the Impure
1 Burn the Impure
1 Phyrexian Rager
1 Peace Strider
1 Pierce Strider
1 Carnifex Demon
1 Copper Myr
1 Necropede
1 Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon
1 Strata Scythe
1 Mortarpod
1 Phyrexian Vatmother
1 Spread the Sickness
1 Spread the Sickness
1 Fangren Marauder
1 Glissa, the Traitor
8 Swamp
7 Mountain
2 Forest

In the sideboard:
1 Arc Trail
1 Galvanic Blast
2 Burn the Impure

this is wrong.

Not to mention: Darksteel Axe goes in Infect decks. Especially ones with 1/1s a la Trigon.

You should not be playing any bad Infect creatures, and should instead be 3 colors with the best cards in each color. Your deck will win via attrition of bombs. Answer for everyone = fear of no one.

And a special note to staff thumbing Duodax's first comment: While he is generally a douche he is right and it's not an insult to say a dead man is dead.

I'm still trying to figure out why this is a Sick Pool and not an average to above average pool. Regardless of the way you built it, the pool is nothing special. The ML sealed generator has always been a bit off and loves shooting out lots of multiples and as a result I have seen a lot better pools than that. Hell I played a sealed on magic-online (which has a more realistic sealed generator) and this pool makes that pool look godlike ( http://img585.imageshack.us/f/unledzg.png/ ).

Now on the subject of deck building, I have to agree there is no time where I can help it that I want walls in a dedicated infect deck. If you have to play defense with infect you have probably already lost.

@WhoAmI

Trigon of Corruption > Trigon of Infestation #2

Removal > bad creature creation

Fangren Marauder > any infect creature if you are not pure infect

6 mana easy splash for a 5/5 with a SICK ability...I mean thats unbelievable that you left it in your SB

your deck definitely needs some work, you had a nice pool but not an optimal build

2 burn, 1 gal 1 arc trail means you are, without a shadow of a doubt, red. No matter what.

You had forests in your deck and fangren maurader in the sideboard.

These posts make me literally want to kill myself.

Using Infestation MD instead of Corruption is misbuild. No Question. Not Splashing for double Burn the Impure is another misbuild. You really know that the Pick order is Spoiler>Removal>Critters>Utility dont you? You even have Mana Myrs to support 3rd Color...

Missbuilt!

It is so obvious, so, no more comments needed.

Actually, I went for finals in yesterday Trial Limited 2byes-1bye with a poor pool, after 6 really hard rounds. It is not necessary have a sick pool to win, its more important have a solid built, and even more, playing without fails.

1712 limited rating < 1780 limited rating

That makes the difference. tumble magnet = some timing.
After game 1 sideboard is forbidden? Oh... true.. epic fail for me.

Keep playing. Someday you could reach 1780. Wink

Would you mind sharing you infinite knowledge in articles?
On that ocassion you might explain the sb axe, espesally after considering the first site of this thread ...
//edit: oh know i see, the axe has no time cause it is partying with Spread the Sickness in your sb

@first pool: its hiliarious how i looked trough the sb, and thought hmm 5 pretty good red spells, but there could be nothing else in red since he would apperantly play red then right Very Happy
I might should add that i write this cause otherwise i would have put something like: "PLAY RED FOR THE LOVE OF GOD", in my first post.

PS: posting in a ledgendary Thread, though its missing a DSD-Steve Troll comment how Duodax is the greatst Troll ever[/quote]
