I decided to build a deck around the Scars of Mirrodin Block mechanic "Proliferate". As other mechanics, I picked the following things that work well with profilerate:
I decided to make the deck green-blue-black, mostly with those mechanics, then a few things to give my things with mucho counters trample, and a few search and destroy spells cuz it's what the format demands. There aren't much for legends in those colors, so I went with Vorosh, the Hunter as my commander
Here's the rest:
Damia, Sage of Stone
Glissa, the Traitor
Hand of the Praetors
Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon
Skullbriar, the Walking Grave
Other Stuff (28)
Defense of the Heart
Fuel for the Cause
Slice in Twain
Snake Cult Initiation
Spread the Sickness
So, what do you guys think?
Corpsejack Menace wants to be here. So does Experiment Kraj . So does Fertilid .
I'm not liking the small Infect creatures, including Blightwidow . I know it's part of your theme and all, but poison counters in EDH tend to get you hated on. Maybe that doesn't happen in your meta,but I'd rather see the creatures above or maybe Aquastrand Spider if you are desperate for Reach.
It doesn't matter in a duel. In multiplayer, getting hated equates to getting teamed up on. It's a lot harder to win that way. For what it's worth, the Wither mechanic doesn't draw that hate, because it doesn't cut player's life totals by 30. Using poison counters is like plopping down Sorin Markov and immediately using his second power on every other player. If it took twice the number of poison counters as a regular game (since you have double lives), I don't think people would hate on it so much. You'll understand what I mean when someone uses Bribery or Gather Specimens on your Blightsteel Colossus .
For -1/-1 counters, I'm a big fan of Black Sun's Zenith . Unfortunately it hits your creatures, but it gets around Shroud/Hexproof. Incremental Blight can also be good, especially with a lot of Proliferate effects in your deck.
Gilder Bairn lets you double those +1/+1 counters repeatedly. Enjoy!
Black Sun's Zenith wouldn't be too bad if you have enough +1/+1 counters already on your creatures, and packing in Melira, Sylvok Outcast can also take some bite out of its negative effect on your own board. And I guess she makes a Bribery ed Blightsteel Colossus just big, trampley, and indestructible instead of Infected also...if that would be any consolation...
I think the arc bound dudes might be better as persist creatures.
