Predatory Nightstalker Discussion

Nice deck, I think it has good potential.

I suggest Putrid Imp and Dragon Breath . Who doesn't like a turn 2 win?

I'm pretty sure you don't need 14 big boys to get the reanimator effect. If you really want the effect to happen I suggest something with dredge like Stinkweed Imp .

Finally I suggest removing Predatory Nightstalker (a 3/2 for five?) and replace it with Geth's Verdict or Victim of Night . If you want a creature, make it a Perilous Myr .

Neat build! I hadn't known that Predatory Nightstalker was in Vintage Masters as a common, great inclusion. Have you considered Thalakos Seer? Besides the obvious combination with the general, it and Ninja of the Deep Hours make a kickass tag team.

ClubToDeath_Unsummon_Legend Thanks for the suggestions. I forgot to mention this deck is for MTGO where vintage masters set added a bunch of previously uncommon cards to common/pauper format. Chainer's Edict being one of them, along with Predatory Nightstalker. I do like the idea of Geth's verdict for a replacements for Chainer's Edict when Chainer's Edict isn't pauper legal.

I'll have to try substituting cycle lands for Jungle Hollow, since I do see Tilling Treefolk not really adding that much synergy.

The blue permanent I think is a mush however, since it allows for an infinite loop as long as the graveyard doesn't get exiled. Can use Death Denied to return X creatures, two of which being Crypt Rats and Scrivener, then can play Scrivener to return Death Denied, play Crypt Rats to board wipe, then repeat until Krosan Tusker is biggest and only creature on the board or until victory.

Gnaw to the Bone is almost free to have in the deck. It doesn't hurt having 1 in main deck since a lot of the time it'll get milled, and even if it doesn't, gaining on average 15-25 life for 3 manna is never a bad idea when Crypt Rats are bleeding all players (including yourself).
