Excuse my rookie ignorance, but isn't infect an ability, thus rendered powerless against a card like Leyline of Purity which protects a player from abilities?
Yes, thanks, I did mean Leyline of Sanctity. Thanks for the explanation that "target" is a keyword for Leyline of Sanctity. I will take Infect more seriously after today's column and your reply. Thanks!
Infect creatures are so good, it's like they have double strike or something.
