Quote from fandangle316 »What was the issue with infect? I ask as i play against it frequently
I don't have any issues with Infect. I find it to be a favored match-up so long as they don't have the nuts. We have 8 to 10 removal spells and they only run 12 creatures we care about and 4 can be Wastelanded (save Wasteland for Inkmoth Nexus).
One counterintuitive thing to do is kill their creatures at the end of their turn or during your main phase. It's weird since you want to kill them in combat, but they will use their protection/pump spells and get more infect. If you do it main phase, you get them to waste their protection/pump without it infecting you for more.

I haven't played or tested against it yet, but I think the new Chalice guy will make the match-up more annoying. I feel like we're still favored (especially after siding in our -X/-X effects), but putting him on 2 is pretty crappy for us since it turns off most of our removal.
We'll have to wait and see what the new DnT list looks like. I don't think it will run 4 copies of the new guy.
