Titilanious Thanks for the suggestions. Yeah, Patron of the Nezumi is not very good. I was having problems with late game blocking especially, and with the rat offering option of Patron, I could cast if for only 4 mana if I had a Chittering Rats. Unfortunately it was usually dead in my hand. Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni actually wasn't bad in earlier versions of this build which was way more rat heavy and included more Typhoid Rats, Nezumi Cutthroat, Swarm of Rats as well as Skullsnatcher. I would swing with my army of rats, and just ninjutsu him out. It was more about sneaking in 5 damage than stealing a creature. However, as this deck progressed, I cut more and more rats in favor of discard spells and removal which kind of forced me to hold back the few rats I did have for blocks.

Thank you for the advice. I will definitely be doing some thinking and tinkering.

Hello, glad to see more people taking a liking to discard. While I love the rat theme, it does seem a tad forced. Patron of the Nezumi just isn't too good neat but not to good sadly. Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni is a great card but is a very high mana cost. Discard decks seem to work best with lower cost cards that value out.My suggestion would be to remove those 2, and possibly the Typhoid Rats add in 2 more targeted discard such as Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize and then either more removal Fatal Push or even Raven's Crime. That could make this version more competitive.

As for 8 rack in general and your question about budgeting Liliana of the Veil is the best walker in the format, it is really difficult to replace her in mono black. However adding red, opens up new options to removal including bolt and Terminate which could be a pseudo replacement for her.

Ensnaring Bridge can be replaced with more removal and more discard.

I ran an 8 rack deck in a larger tournament without Ensnaring Bridge main board and made top 8. List

Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni and Scion of Darkness. Why the focus on creatures though? It seems like you're ignoring a lot of good cards. Is your playgroup just that creature heavy?

Animate Dead and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni are cards that would probably be good in here, maybe Puppeteer Clique. Puppeteer Clique is decent against removal too, because it has persist. Instead of having all that many Deathtouch creatures and relying on combat damage so much, you could also add in more removal. Murder Disfigure actually, Rabid Bite and Prey Upon could be good to use with your Deathtouch creatures.

Thank you, Daedalus19876 :) I actually considered unblockable dudes like him or others, but I thiiiink that most of them are fliers and tend to push through. Mostly. And I very much like Throat Slitter. I'll see how good Higure is for now or if it can be interchangeable with TS.

One other Ninjutsu flavoured side I thought of would be a one-of Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni. It's pretty costly for her effect is sweet for anything working around a graveyard.

Reanimator suggestions : BIG creatures like your Skeletal Wurms are welcome, since you won't pay the mana costs for them - you'll reanimate them. You need some discard spells or self-milling.

Since you like regenerate...

Creatures : Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Magus of the Abyss (destroy your creature? Regenerate it before!), Skeletal Vampire

Otherwise, big creatures : Demon of Death's Gate, Grave Titan, Griselbrand, Lord of the Void, Massacre Wurm...

Infect suggestions : Regenerate could shine here. Enchant your creatures with the like of Phyresis or Glistening Oil, or target them with Tainted Strike and then regenerate to keep them on the battlefield if they're targeted with removal.

Since you already have Skithiryx, Infect seems like a given.

In ALL cases, you need some draw spells. Read the Bones, Painful Lesson, Night's Whisper and Sign in Blood are choices in this matter. It all depends if you want to target only yourself or you also want the choice of dealing 2 points of damage to try to finish low life opponents.

If you decide on which kind of deck you want to make, just say so i'll help more.

My thought behind Prototype Portal was to copy Aether Vial orDoor of Destinies.

I cant seem to find any of my Pack Rats, which is saddening.... same with Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni

I like the idea of Attrition

Rhystic Tutor should actually be Demonic Tutor
