Also, that card gets so broken in a Seven Dwarves and Relentless Rats deck... oh well. >:)

there are a lot of issues with this that you should take into consideration.

first things first, this deck isn't mono color in any form, so you should take those tags out. mono-white and mono-red mean that a deck contains that color+colorless without any other color, this deck is boros, or white and red.

second thing, this deck is not legal in commander. in the commander format there are a handful of rules that need to be followed, notably the following.

-A commander deck needs to have a Legendary Creature noted as the commander. (you can do this in editing by putting CMDR next to the card that is your commander)

-Commander decks can't contain colors that are not represented on the commander card. (so if a card has a red and white in the cost, or a red symbol in the cost and a white symbol on the card.)

-Commander is a singleton format, which means that cards that either don't specifically state that they can contain multiple copies (such as Relentless Rats ) or aren't basic lands can't have more than one copy in the deck.

-Commander is a format with a strict limit on how large decks are. a commander deck must have Exactly 100 cards including the commander.

third thing, this deck is not legal in any of the more common formats. most formats that aren't singleton formats do not allow for cards (outside of previously mentioned exceptions) to have more than 4 copies put into a deck.

and now onto general card choices. you have a lot of very very weak cards in this deck. this deck is only just strong enough to play against other people that have never played magic before.

perhaps before you build any more decks on the site you should take the opportunity to go search for tutorials for deck building, and look at guides for terminology, and try and increase your knowledge of this wonderful game.

Lathliss' Broodling

Creature - Dragon

Flying, Defender

As long as you control a creature named Lathliss, Dragon Queen , Lathliss' Broodling gets +2/+2 and loses defender.

Contrary to popular belief, Dragons are not the savage, vial killers many scholars make them out to be. Quite the opposite. Many Dragon species show loving and devoted familial bonds with their clutches and whelps. Far more than can be said for snakes and even crocodiles, in fact.


How about a creature like Relentless Rats where you can have any number of them in the deck, but this creature is a minimum of two colors. Subtype and abilities can be whatever you want.

Why Rat Colony?

Relentless Rats are literally just better in every way.

Rat Colony is for squares, Relentless Rats

You should be able to play all of them.

Limited format events do not restrict players to the normal rule of only having up to four copies of a given card in their decks, which incidentally obviates the need for previous rules text that altered deckbuilding in this way.

So far the only cards that have exceptions to the "four-of" rule are Persistent Petitioners , Rat Colony , Relentless Rats , and Shadowborn Apostle , all of which say that a deck can have any number of that particular card.

This is the first time we've seen rules expanding the number past four without removing the restriction entirely, but it's safe to assume that it functions similarly to deckbuilding with a limit of four of each card, and thus is ignored in Limited.

williamcipher: Techincally, there kind of is a maximum deck size:

"Constructed decks must contain a minimum of sixty cards. There is no maximum deck size; however, you must be able to shuffle your deck with no assistance. If a player wishes to use a sideboard, it can contain up to fifteen cards."

taken from Vintage Format Deck Construction

This means that the largest deck you can have is one that you can shuffle unassisted without being given a slow play warning or otherwise. Given the fact that a Relentless Rats costs like what, let's say about $1.50, that would mena that you would need somwhere in the order of 180,000 copies of the card to compete with the price of the deck in its current state and I'm pretty sure that would get you a slow play warning :P
