Saljen on Rat deck

Crypt Ghast would give you some ramp

Hollowborn Barghest isn't a rat, but the ability is quite good with your game plan.

Rackling same with this guy, another Rack but tied to a non-rat creature

Gibbering Descent, Bottomless Pit, Creeping Dread, and Necrogen Mists each give you reliable discard every turn

Oppression, painful quandry, and Geth's Grimoire give you more rewards when someone discards

Syphon Mind, Dark Deal, Smallpox, and Myojin of Night's Reach are all some good discard cards you're missing

Phyrexian Reclamation can let you re-play annoying creatures once people remove them, as well as provide draw for when you're top decking

Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a super solid black finisher and can keep you in the game a lot longer

Geier Reach Sanitarium gives you a discard trigger for everyone, and draws everyone another card which you can make them discard again

Attrition lets you use those rat tokens for repeatable removal

These are the cards that are probably under performing in your deck: Bone Splinters, Coercion, Death Stroke, Duress, Kaervek's Hex, Ostracize, Waking Nightmare, Ichor Rats, Typhoid Rats, Simulacrum, Subversion, Ordeal of Erebos,

Heritage Druid, Elvish Archdruid, Birchlore Rangers, Priest of Titania, Joraga Treespeaker let you turn your tokens into mana etc.

Nature's Lore, Assassinate, Bone Splinters, Death Stroke, Despise, Distress, Explore, Gruesome Discovery, Journey of Discovery, Mind Rot, Appetite for the Unnatural, Doom Blade, Druid's Deliverance, Gilt-Leaf Ambush, Naturalize, Seedling Charm, Spring Cleaning, Strength in Numbers, Vitalize, Prowess of the Fair, Wayfarer's Bauble, Deadbridge Shaman, Silhana Starfletcher can all be cut in my opinion. These cards are all low impact or just a bit eh, compared to what you can do.

Unnerve should be Syphon Mind.

Nullmage Shepherd lets to turn a swarm of tokens into repeatable removal.

If you want to go in hard on tokens, you also have Primal Vigor as another token doubler, Second Harvest as a single use doubler, Sylvan Offering as a massive token producer/political card you can take advantage of especially. Voice of the Woods turns tokens into yet more tokens.

Damnable Pact is a good draw x spell, which can be political, or can be used to burn someone to death. Weird Harvest is an interesting political option, that can let you win on the spot with enough ramp.

You might want to replace Death Stroke on the sideboard for Murderous Compulsion. It has the same text but uses in the casting cost so it's better for multicolored decks.

I would suggest to replace Corpse Hauler by Doomed Necromancer. I think Corpse Connoisseur is a interesting card and i've seen it in a lot of deck but still can't visualize how good it could be. I love the token flavor of your deck and the way that you don't depend on extraordinay crature card to win. I use Birthing Pod, Survival of the Fittest, Evolutionary Leap in my build but i depend much more on come into play ability and you have enough tutoring to get the right card. i finish with two other suggestion ; Beast Within and Maelstrom Pulse I dont think that they are necessary but it could easily replace Asphyxiate and Death Stroke

DudelRok on Oloro Life Gain stuff

Stuff like Mana Leak and Dismember are only going to help you in 1v1 Commander stuff, same with Remand and Murderous Cut... and Death Stroke.

Wraths are better, in most situations, than spot removal, but spot removal is very good to have, for sure.

I would suggest straight up Counterspell to replace the Mana Leak, to start.

Serra Ascendant and Child of Night are also kinda meh.


Victory's Herald

Pontiff of Blight

Healer of the Pride

Cradle of Vitality

Wrath of God
