I have this list Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox which has my big list of usual brewing cards.

You might like Night's Whisper, Nezumi Bone-Reader, Ratchet Bomb Whip of Erebos,Languish/Mutilate.

I put together this less budget B/G version. Bloodbond Verminator

Big thing is Bloodbond March for insane synergies with Pack Rat and Rotting Rats with the ubiquitous Aether Vial.

If I was trying to keep this mono black and budget, Drainpipe Vermin / Skullsnatcher / Nezumi Bone-Reader then I'd try to jank out with Thrumming Stone.

halfyoung I like your suggestions, I agree that Rancid Rats might be too slow with the ninjutsu in mind. I actually ran Nezumi Bone-Reader in my first proto-type and I was considering Shrieking Affliction and Liliana's Caress. Thank you for the great suggestions!

Hey friend (: it's my pleasure.

First, for potential cuts: Bloodbriar (there are better options like Mortician Beetle), Agent of Erebos, Eater of Hope, Pharika's Mender, Skullwinder, Vampire Aristocrat (see Bloodthrone Vampire), Vampire Nighthawk. Also, depending on how you feel about your top-curve creatures, those could be flex spots.

I love how strong this deck is with ETB abilities and "when this dies" abilities. Treasure Keeper is phenomenal, for one. You've also got excellent one-shot sacrifice outlets like Devour and kickers and so forth. The permanent sacrifice outlets like Viscera Seer and Jarad are great, but there are few enough of them that you might have trouble sticking a sacrifice outlet.

So, what I would focus on at this point would be finding ways to cheat your fatties into play from the grave, and finding redundancies in your "permanent" sacrifice outlets. There's nothing worse than being a reanimator player with no grave and no ways to sacrifice creatures (it happens...and not always on bum draws). Splinterfright, Jarad's Orders, self-mill like Deadbridge Chant, and anything Dredge (like Stinkweed Imp) will fill your grave with creatures for you, so that when Meren has sixteen counters you'll actually have targets worth pulling. Disciple of Griselbrand, Nezumi Bone-Reader, Birthing Pod are all ways to get more sacrifice triggers when you want them. And don't be afraid to up your curve with Xathrid Demon or other high-CMC win-condition-like cards.

Then, I guess if you're feeling extra adventurous, I'd investigate ways to produce more tokens, because a lot of those sacrifice effects are still powerful for non-tokens, and tokens will help you go wide when you stick Pathbreaker Ibex. Golgari Germination, Verdant Embrace, Ogre Slumlord are all options. The worst part about GBx reanimator imo (I run Karador, Ghost Chieftain) is that the endgame is pretty grindy, so going wide with tokens is a must for me if you want to play a second game.

So, in summary, the deck is super strong in staples/ramp/card draw/core mechanics. Self-mill/extra sacrifice/token synergies are things you can pick and choose to personalize and make it fun for you, the pilot. Best of luck, and be sure to mention me if I can help with anything else!

PickleNutz on RATS!! No way!!

The condition for Quest for the Nihil Stone is pretty specific, and in cases where you're playing a draw heavy or counter deck, it may be completely useless. That's why I have it sideboarded currently. As for Nezumi Bone-Reader I will give it a check.

This deck seems fun, but I think you should add Nezumi Bone-Reader instead of Ravenous Rats. Also I think Quest for the Nihil Stone should always be in the deck, no in Sideboard.
