I'm thinking about replacing Ruin Rat with Typhoid Rats. Typhoid Rats doesn't have the secondary graveyard ability, but it's 1 less mana, and if I really need graveyard removal I can just sideboard in Tormod's Crypt. Thoughts?

Hey there! This looks like a great start to your first Magic deck! Welcome to the game, and to!

First of all, I would recommend reducing your deck size to the minimum - 60 cards. For every card you add over the minimum, it reduces your chances of drawing your best cards. I get that this might be hard to understand - if I add more cards, wouldn't my deck get better? However, let's say that Oracle's Vault is the best card in your deck. (This is just an example, your best card could very well be something else.) With a 105-card deck, you have a 1/105 chance (0.95%) of drawing Oracle's Vault. With a 60-card deck, however, your chances of drawing Oracle's Vault rise to 1/60 (1.7%), almost doubling your chances of drawing your most powerful cards. In any case, I'd take out the following cards:

This should make your deck a little more consistent, and hopefully a little more fun as well. In any case, I hope you have an excellent time playing Magic!

VraskaTheCursed depends on whose turn it is. if the turn player is the one controlling Ruin Rat, it won't be able to exile the creature targeted by Supernatural Stamina

Raging_Squiggle the effect of Ruin Rat will only fizzle if its controller is actually foolish enough to target the same creature targeted by Supernatural Stamina. all he has to do is choose something else. the rat doesn't pick a target until it hits the grave, long after the Supernatural Stamina spell has resolved.

The other players creature is attacking and he put Supernatural Stamina on it after I blocked with Ruin Rat

  1. both creatures die at the same time, when combat damage is dealt.
  2. the Supernatural Stamina trigger goes on the stack.
  3. the Ruin Rat trigger goes on the stack.
  4. Ruin Rat resolves, exiling the creature.

TL;DR: Yes, you can.

Yes. Because Supernatural Stamina says when this creature dies, return it to the battlefield tapped under its owners control. Ruin Rat will still die and go to the graveyard, which will trigger its ability, then it will return to the battlefield tapped under its owners control.

I blocked a creature with Ruin Rat then they cast Supernatural Stamina on said creature, is it possible to exile that creature when it dies.
