You definitely need an ROUS: Sinuous Vermin

I see you want cut ideas based on your comment on my wall. As such....

Butcher of Malakir - Too expensive to be impactful. Would rather have Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos if you still wanted to keep it

Gnat Miser - Weak static effect and doesn't do much other than being a tekashi69 (a rat :P)

Sinuous Vermin - Being or not being a monsterous, it is weak. Not worth a slot.

Swarm of Rats - Potentially big dude with no trample, you already have 1 or 2 of these, redundancy is not needed. I don't even think the others are. They seem win-more.

Typhoid Rats - Is cute, but 1/1 deathtouch with no way to abuse is ripe for cutting.

Bad Moon - Definition of win-more. Anthem helps opponents too, weak static effect. Not worth it at all.

Gravepurge - Eh, there is much better recursion in black if you are so inclined.

Cast Down - Meta dependent, but I would go with Go for the Throat

You could add in some more relentless rats or some of the suggestions I recommended.

Coffers is the primary card you should add if you can, SO much ramp. But I'm biased because I have a deck based on it. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would help you ramp out alot too!

Reply here instead of on my wall so I can keep track of everything :)

I think the deck needs some more black mana symbols to take advantage of Gary; it's not a rat, but Cuombajj Witches has hands so it kinda still fits with the deck name if that matters to you. A lot of decks play 1 toughness things in pauper, so it's pretty handy (unintentinoal pun). I'd choose to cut the 4 Night's Whisper or Sinuous Vermin for them.

  1. Relentless Rats
  2. Razortooth Rats
  3. Crypt Rats board wipes and hits all players so you'll want some life-gain
  4. Rotting Rats
  5. Sinuous Vermin Can get quite large. Could used after a board wipe
  6. Gnat Miser is interesting. Useful early/mid game or against controlly matchups

Door of Destinies, Skullclamp, Soul Foundry, In Garruk's Wake, Victimize, Graf Rats + Midnight Scavengers, Sewer Rats, and Sinuous Vermin make decent budget cards... but I'm just partial to these suggestions because their in my tribal deck:

Yersinia pestis

Commander / EDH kamelyan

Graf Rats+Midnight Scavengers = Chittering Host

you also have all the other nezumi but not Nezumi Shortfang

if you need more board sweepers Crypt Rats and Infected Vermin could be choices that fit the theme.

Okiba-Gang Shinobi, Rancid Rats, Sinuous Vermin, Dirty Wererat can replace other vanilla rats like Gutter Skulk, Muck Rats, Drainpipe Vermin

Plague of Vermin - rat token spell

poGDI I do not play online btw, I am fortunate to have folks around to play in paper. If I did play online, I'd perhaps add a fourth Rotting Rats and a Okiba-Gang Shinobi. It's hard to beat Sinuous Vermin as a curve topper though. All else fails, jam in a couple of Gurmag Anglers.

Thank you! Don't forget to upvote! :)
