Evasion + Infect = Standard? Who knows...

In my opinion, is on par with Ichorclaw Myr and Blight Mamba, seeing how they are all 2cmc for a 1/1 with infect and one other useful ability. This should probably be in every infect deck alongside Ichorclaw Myr

You can put your Swamp Mosquitoes away now.

That's one mean gnat. Staple for infect deck. Just pump it, pump it again and watch how opponent dies in pain.

Black is always happy to see decent fliers come its way.
Point of fact: this guy is more than decent.

This card and phryexian crusader is the only reason my infect deck is not monogreen

How often do you see a format-defining 1/1 flier for 1B?

Bog Imp plus one word, one, becomes the cornerstone of the deck that rules limited. And people think infect is weak.

You have a fair point about the Stormfront Pegasus, cheesetouch. A wrong point, but a fair one.

Both get you 10% of the way to victory when they connect. However, here's how good 'ol Plague Stinger is superior:

-More value from equip/enchant effects. Throw a Trusty Machete on the Plague Stinger, and he's suddenly swinging for the equivalent of 6, as opposed to 4 from the flying horse guy.

-Getting a poison counter on an opponent. Do two damage to an opponent: cool, but life goes on. Put a poison counter on, and now you have a foothold for proliferating effects, and also the trigger for using your Corrupted Resolves.

-Arguably more likely to get your opponent to spend a removal spell on a 2 drop.

And that's not even getting into the merits of an efficiently costed black flier. On the surface the two may seem similar, but there's a reason Plague Stinger gets more love.

Opening hand with Plague Stinger + 3 Vampire's Bites + 3 Swamp means that if your opponent has no counters or removal, you will win on turn 3. Not very likely to happen, but still a combo that does lethal damage in one turn for less than a dollar.
