Weekly Card Review (WCR3 Part2)

This is a new series of articles where I will review a card from the latest set Every week and its influences in constructed Standard, from the top mythic down to common cards that people might be ignoring their full potential. Between each review I will show a example of a deck where that card could fit. Please feel free to add more ideas and discuss the cards on each week!
 Deadly Poison
 Since I haven't managed to do a really strong deck around of it, this week I've decided instead of take it into a very cheap and fun deck for casual playing. With a budget of about 10$ I've ended up with this list:
Lands: 9 Forest 8 Swamp
Creatures: 4 Glistener Elf 4 Ichorclaw myr 4 Blight Mamba 4 Rot Wolf 4 Phyrexian Crusader
Other Spells: 2 Infiltration lens 2 Deadly Allure 2 Hunger of the Howlpack 4 Mutagenic Growth 2 Ranger's Guile 2 Undying Evil 2 Virulent Wound 2 Livewire Lash 4 Titanic Growth.

This deck's winning method is by pumping your small infect creatures and killing your opponent with poison. Also having them being blocked is a "not so bad" result since you will likely draw cards out of it. This deck's main weakness are decks that can cast huge amount of creatures (such as tokens) or control decks (since they use creatures like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite).
Tune in next week for another card review.

  1. This card could work well with goblin sharpshooter, clear just about any board
