Panzerforge, I made this deck a long time ago, before the Rancid Rats existed.

I'll try them, they are really good :) thanks for the suggestion!

This looks great!

Maybe adding in some Rancid Rats instead of the Chittering Rats, as their skulk ability would pair well with the Okiba-Gang Shinobi?

Rat decks for the win!

Also razelfark, other keyword warriors to consider for the deck - Vampire Cutthroat & Rancid Rats. While being 1/1's they both bring Skulk and either Lifelink or Deathtouch.

Food for thought while I sleep.

Honestly I think this deck would be so much better as orzhov. There are so many better leywords on it and with the new set coming out you can add Gifted Aetherborn which is 2 mana for 2 keywords and from other sets there isAyli, Eternal Pilgrim and Rancid Rats and more! So good deck but since red doesn't do that much for you by way of keywords I think you should go orzhov or at least mardu!

Perhaps you could put in a extra Consulate Skygate for early game protection. You can either use Shamble Back it's good to stop graveyard decks or Press for Answers to slow down your opponents down and get an extra clue for Dhund Operative.

You might want to increase Dhund Operative to 4 and remove Rancid Rats I think Dhund Operative has more potential then the rats.

Take the Rancid Rats out and switch it for Malakir Familiar. Let your lifelink units attack first then dish out 3 damage from Malakir Familiar from the life gain pump. I used to run this kind of deck.

Thank you! So I think to remove some cards:

-2 Markov Dreadknight

-2 Rancid Rats

-1 Noosegraf Mob

-2 Cemetery Recruitment

-3 Swamp

Now I put:

+2 Haunted Dead

+2 Prized Amalgam

+1 Diregraf Colossus

+2 Anguished Unmaking

+3 Plains

What do you think?

You have a bit of white mana, Anguished Unmaking is a great removal spell. Haunted Dead and Prized Amalgam would also be good additions. Markov Dreadknight and Rancid Rats feel a bit out of place and not that great. Noosegraf Mob is a bit slow. Add another Diregraf Colossus. I also think you need more discard outlets for all the madness triggers.
