Infect is a tempo-combo deck that wins via the combat step. It plays a Delver-esque game, sticking an early Glistener Elf, Blighted Agent, or Inkmoth Nexus and protecting it with Force of Will, Daze, Spell Pierce, Vines of Vastwood, Blossoming Defense, and other pump spells. Those pump spells can also be used to simply swing the game out of nowhere - an Invigorate plus a Berserk turns any 1/1 infect into a lethal attacker. Become Immense, Noble Hierarch, Pendelhaven, and Scale Up also help to turn these creatures into powerful threats. Brainstorm and Ponder help set everything up. Crop Rotation is a common inclusion as it can find Inkmoth Nexus as well as some silver bullets like Bojuka Bog or Karakas. Teferi, Time Raveler is an occasional inclusion as well, as he can shut off instant-speed interaction to secure a kill.
