Have you considered Chittering Rats?

thank you. I also playtested. Sword of Light and Shadow is very powerful against my deck.Chittering Rats I didn't know until now. it is a good card.

I see you only have one source of colorless mana, when I playtested, white mana was also scarce.What about 4x Caves of Koilos insted of 2x Plains and 2x Swamp ?

If you like playtesting again, try this sideboard version:

Flammendes Schwert 6

I don't think there are any 2-creatures-combo in pauper... Maybe Archaeomancer and Chittering Rats but it needs some flickers (and even in Duel EDH some cards are banned to be chosen as commanders). As far as now ideas might be:

  • Any couple of common creatures
  • Any couple of 2-colored common creatures (like the partners in EDH)
  • Any couple of common creatures but the deck must be 2 colors or more

I'd drop the Relentless Rats. Those are all in or nothing. Gotta run 25+ of them for it to be an even vaguely successful strategy.

I second what the other comments are saying. Drop the 12x Relentless Rats and add in 4x Chittering Rats and Ravenous Rats to keep up the hand pressure on your opponent. Swarmyard is a pretty much auto 4x of. Amazing card that only fits in this type of deck. Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek are other cards to consider, or better yet some removal like Doom Blade or Fatal Push.

If you really want the deck to get a boost, run 4x Aether Vial.

you should consider some number of Chittering Rats, and Ravenous Rats. Both disrupt your opponent and add to your number rats.

I would say that most prison decks don't lock people COMPLETELY out of the game, they just lame them very hard.
That is what the combination of Blood Moon + Spreading Seas does.
Its not hardlock like lantern controll, or decks that abuse Chittering Rats - which is why i referred to it as hybrid.

(On the other hand the "imperial bloodwolf" deck from legacy also doesn't complety lock out opponents, but its still a prison deck)

I can't help but think that Chittering Rats could find a place in this list. Looks ""fun"" though :)
