Relentless Rats Discussion

Coward_Token on Ravnica Allegiance: Spoilers and Speculation

1 month ago

Whew, I've sure talked a lot in this thread. Here's probably my (second-to-)last EDH clutter:

Lumbering Battlement : Drop it, exile your other ETB people then flicker it. There's probably some obvious Worldgorger Dragon -esque combos to be found. With the bonus it gets and its base stats I think the CMC is just fine.

Unbreakable Formation : Call me greedy but with green having Heroic Intervention I wish the prime defensive color got this at 2 CMC.

Eyes Everywhere : There's probably some fun abuse to be had when combined with owner-returning flickering; otherwise it faces stiff competition from Thassa, God of the Sea . Non- you steal from will probably not have much trouble activating its ability again due ubiquity of "any color" mana rocks, although that's far less certain with decks containing 2 or less colors.

Electrodominance : To squeeze just a bit more discussion out of this card, I think it's neat that this also functions as a one-time mana filter due to the genericness of .

Cavalcade of Calamity: I kinda wish they just color shifted Raid Bombardment to mono- instead, since red tends to have so much +X/+0 going on. At least the art is cool.

Persistent Petitioners: Ahahaha, oh yes, this is definitely how I want Advisor tribal to be flavored. A fine addition to the growing Relentless Rats family.

Font of Agonies : Loving the design space here. In the right deck this can probably be an efficient source of removal too.

Vindictive Vampire: For those tribal decks who feel bad over running Zulaport Cutthroat . Too bad it doesn't get Falkenrath Noble 's flying though. (+1 toughness isn't a very large consolation.)

Guardian Project : Kinda surprised Beast Whisperer got a rival right away. As far as singleton formats go, the it's a question of a body vs getting draws from cheating out creatures in addition to casting them.

Incubation Druid : There's stronger dorks out there, but I think it makes a fine complement if you can get counters on it reasonably early.

Rampage of the Clans : Fun in more chaotic Gahiji, Honored One decks

Bedevil : So I'm not a Putrefy fan but I'd still pick it over this if I had the choice, if only because the flexibility of the seems more valuable for the purpose of being able to more often react to threats at Instant speed over being able to target PWs. Still, this is something rakdos deserves and a fine choice when green isn't available.

Cindervines : Aura of Silence , Gruul-style! Neat for Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire decks who want more non-ETB removal.

Sunder Shaman : Not quite Trygon Predator but I think it's worth considering if you can't get that identity.

PS. What was the deal with Ferocious suddenly showing up incognito?

Replaced some cards with more Relentless Rats and Thrumming Stone

oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid between Relentless Rats and Colony Rats, I'm leaning towards the colony for the easier cast and skullclamp effects. Do you think its not worth them being easier to kill?
Plague of Vermin is fkn hilarious! Alot of those cards seem good too except for the cat, im not seeing what he neccesary does except get big.

MESS1802 on Mono Black Creature Flooding

I’m trying to make a rat deck with 30 Relentless Rats and was hoping for a way to get a lot of them from my hand into play. I have Thrumming Stone to do it from my library, but I want to be able to do it from my hand as well as a backup. Any suggestions?

DrukenReaps on Mono-colored

I have to vote for since it is my favorite color. I would say if you go with rats use Rat Colony over Relentless Rats. The colony is easier to kill but its power grows for EVERY rat while relentless grows only for each other relentless. This makes a huge difference when you are running Marrow-Gnawer.

That said I would recommend Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker with the Shadowborn Apostles. This deck is a lot of fun and people really underestimate the versatility of demons. My Reaper Born is Athreos but you can see much of what you might want to include in the deck. And since you are mono- you have room for some of the things I don't like Coat of Arms which turns the clerics huge and the demons that are already big even bigger. Running Conspiracy is also interesting depending on the non-demons you play.

It is the best thing in the world to instantly summon up Archfiend of Depravity or Ob Nixilis, Unshackled.

Could Relentless Rats be better, because they survive Pestilence and other board wipes?

SynergyBuild on My Approach for Deck Design ...

I think I already did this with much more detail... All About EDH is my full, indepth primer, with discussion on a lot of the intricacies you miss.

Did you think all decks have a why? What is the why in cEDH? to win. How? I guess you can stax out the opposing decks with Stasis and Tangle Wire until you have a The Chain Veil with your commander Teferi, Temporal Archmage, go infinite, draw your deck, and Ugin bolt your opponents to death. While that is a how... it isn't direct, and it also isn't exactly... a good idea.

Your primer doesn't explain much of any card choices, mana curve, mana at all, or a lot else. Don't get me wrong, I don't think it is bad. However, simply scarce in detail. I could expect some of the very basics at least, 100 cards, one is a commander, color identity, and banlist, one of each card, exceptions being Relentless Rats, Basic lands, etc.

You know, literally a simple outline of how to make a commander deck. But no. None of that. Not the real theory, the basics, or really an in-between.
