Magic: The Gathering Deck Design – Aggro Infect

Today in The Cube:

Thought I'd share my latest Magic deck design, which has been pretty successful in casual play:

Deck: Aggro Infect (60) // Lands 
22 Swamp
// Creatures
1 Blackcleave Goblin
3 Blood Seeker
1 Carnifex Demon
2 Contagious Nim
3 Flensermite
2 Fume Spitter
1 Grave Titan
1 Phyrexian Obliterator
1 Plague Stinger
1 Reaper from the Abyss
2 Scourge Servant
1 Sheoldred, Whispering One
1 Skinrender
2 Tormented Soul
3 Typhoid Rats
// Spells
3 Diabolic Tutor
4 Doom Blade
1 Geth's Verdict
2 Grim Affliction
2 Instill Infection
1 Virulent Wound

STRATEGY: This deck's main goal is to keep your opponent occupied by bringing out small creatures early (Tormented Soul, Typhoid Rats, etc.) and pinging your opponent for life, Poison and/or -1/-1 counters (thanks to Flensermite and others with infect) while you wait to bring out the big creatures.
Diabolic Tutors will help get out Phyrexian Obliterator fast, and others like Sheoldred, Whispering One and Grave Titan pack a wallop once you've got enough land stockpiled.
Goth's Verdict and Doom Blade will remove pesky creatures in your way and Grim Affliction, Virulent Wound and Instill Infection will help to weaken creatures and Poison your opponent, providing a one-two punch to your powerful beasts once they're on the battlefield.
