WargRave on Rats all the way down

Needs more Rat Colony

With only 6 Relentless Rats you need half of your total number on the battlefield to even make them 4/4s. Most of the time they will be 3 mana 2/2s. You need a critical mass of Relentless Rats--at least 20. If you want to dedicate only a small portion of your deck to the Relentless effect, then Rat Colony is much better; unlike Relentless Rats it benefits from any rat you control, including Marrow-Gnawer's tokens. Pack Rat is also superior if you have many non-Relentless Rats.

Rat Colony is strictly better than Swarm of Rats. It's also generally better than Bog Rats, Carrion Rats, Muck Rats, Nezumi Cutthroat (fear isn't worth a large power loss and "can't block", especially when Marrow-Gnawer provides fear), Pestilence Rats (Rat Colony gets +2/-2 under most conditions and costs 1 less), and Earsplitting Rats (not enough graveyard/discard synergies).

Other suggestions

Tormod's Crypt -> Nihil Spellbomb, Bojuka Bog. You can run Crypt in addition if needed, but I would use these first.

Kitesail -> Bladed Pinions, Fleetfeather Sandals.

Geth's Grimoire -> remove. Only four or so cards in this deck actually cause an opponent to discard. Since you're running Ancient Craving, might as well slot in Ambition's Cost as well.

Nightmare Lash -> Lashwrithe. Or just run both, but Lashwrithe first.

Sword of the Paruns -> Bad Moon, Adaptive Automaton, Hall of Triumph, Vanquisher's Banner, and Obelisk of Urd are all more mana efficient and consistent ways to pump your rats.

Altar's Reap -> Costly Plunder, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood.

I'm not sure how Shriveling Rot serves the deck.

There are two Cabal Strongholds, so one needs to come out. Cycling lands--Barren Moor, Polluted Mire, and Desert of the Glorified--hedge against land-heavy draws. Some cheap utility/value lands like Zhalfirin Void, Encroaching Wastes, Mystifying Maze, or Temple of the False God might be good over some number of Swamps too.

Phyrexian Tribute -> Scour from Existence, Unstable Obelisk. I know black is bad with artifacts, but there is a reason Phyrexian Tribute is in 55 edh decks, and the other two are in over 5000 each, and it isn't just color restriction. They cover all five permanent types instead of just one, including the equally hard-for-black enchantments. Requiring two creatures to sacrifice, Phyrexian Tribute isn't even always easier to cast, and it's effect is far less flexible.

Speaking of Unstable Obelisk, more mana ramp would be prudent, like Wayfarer's Bauble, Mind Stone, and Commander's Sphere. Bontu's Monument isn't Jet Medallion, but is still worthwhile with 27 creatures.

I don't think there are enough graveyard synergies to make Living Death appropriate.

Night Dealings is slow, does nothing if the battlefield isn't somewhat favorable, can potentially get removed, makes you reveal, and can't get lands. Razaketh's Rite and Mastermind's Acquisition tutor with no fuss. If you want slow, multi-card tutoring, Diabolic Revelation, Demonic Collusion, and Increasing Ambition are reliable options. Although none feature Nezumi in their art.

Curse of Death's Hold is a bit narrow for multiplayer; I'd prefer Ascendant Evincar which will hit more enemy creatures overall while buffing your own and being a 3/3 flier.

MegaMatt13 what's you're thoughts on running Lich Lord of Unx he's a really solid value card and the mill and other effects can really get going if you equip Illusionist's Bracers. Also Ancient Tomb, Temple of the False God, and Dimir Aqueduct since those will essentially let you double your mana when you cast Rewind

first I'd go with some other lands. Depending on your meta, maybe a Homeward Path, Arcane Lighthouse, or Ghost Quarter for some cheap utility, or even a Temple of the False God, or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for additional ramp. or if you don't mind the cost (I read above you're looking to keep it cheap) Yavimaya Hollow, is great, but really expensive. land utility is great, and most decks aren't designed to help defend against lands that do things, there are a ton of lands that do lots of cool stuff.

Sands of Delirium isn't something I see in mono-green, it's a great effect but not something I'd put in this deck imo. Helm of the Host if phenomenal, but again, I wouldn't run it here.

and a couple great cards that I don't think see's enough play is Recollect and Regrowth. Saying that it can get ANY CARD from your graveyard?! makes it so that you can get that key piece from any board-wipe someone may throw at you, or that spell you wish you could cast again.

also another great ramp creature is Wood Elves. I could go on, but I don't want to reform your deck, just maybe give you a couple suggestions.

You need more mana acceleration, Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus (just reprinted so much cheaper now), Worn Powerstone and of course being in a green a can't recommend green mana ramp spells highly enough for such a mana intensive tribe so things like Rampant Growth, Harrow, Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, Skyshroud Claim, Explosive Vegetation and Hour of Promise if you use utility lands or lands like Temple of the False God. If you go for the green mana ramp route I would highly recommend shock lands or any land that has more then one basic land type to make color fixing easier. With enough ramp you could probably safely drop down to 40 lands, also Quicksilver Amulet seems to be ideal for this kind of deck.

You also have the strongest card drawing color in your command, blue. I would recommend also cashing in on this with about 5 card draw spells to help keep your tempo going. Recurring Insight, Rhystic Study, Consecrated Sphinx, Blue Sun's Zenith, Thought Reflection and Mind Unbound are some decent card draw spells in blue.

You might want to remove Coat of Arms as it is more likely to blow up in your face against cheaper tribal creatures or token decks. Try Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots instead to protect your investment and beat face sooner.

I'm honestly struggling a bit. I'm really not familiar with the deck.

The most obvious thing I'm not seeing that would streamline a deck like this is tutors. Obviously Demonic and Vampiric Tutors are best (albeit expensive) but you're in the 3 next best colors for tutors and have options for pretty much any spell. Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Chord of Calling, Green Sun's Zenith, Eladamri's Call, and creatures like Recruiter of the Guard, Protean Hulk, and Fierce Empath. Running tutors allows you to count it as a 2nd copy of several effects as it covers redundancy like a champ.

Another thing I'm noticing is very little ramp/Mana fixing and your manabase could use some tlc. I'd probably go with Birds of Paradise, Farseek, Ash Barrens, and probably Nature's Lore and Skyshroud Claim because they put the lands in untapped.

I'd drop any colorless lands like Temple of the False God, Alchemist's Refuge, High Market and Reliquary Tower just because you're 4 colors. I'd add more basics (to support a few of the above cards) and Reflecting Pool, City of Brass, and Mana Confluence just for the mana fixing.

Anyways, off to bed. Hope I helped, and good luck.

Alrighty, took a quick look and made some adjustments, could you tell me what you think darksilver? Going to remove Dakmor Salvage, Elves of Deep Shadow, Roil Elemental, Font of Fortunes, Phyrexian Arena, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, Dictate of Karametra, and Temple of the False God. To replace these I was gonna add Realms Uncharted, Horn of Greed,Kiora, Master of the Depths, Secrets of the Dead, Ramunap Excavator, Burgeoning, Sands of Delirium, Elixir of Immortality, Havengul Lich, and Barren Moor. Have not added Alchemist's Refuge yet, need to though. Thinking about removing an artifact to facilitate this, maybe Ratchet Bomb or Wayfarer's Bauble. Or maybe Jace or Liliana... Decisions, decisions. But! I haven't made these changes yet!

JohnnyCRO,

I've been fortunate thus far with Temple of the False God. The only time I had it out before having the necessary number of lands, someone else had Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

And I'm not spending five mana to play lands; I must have not explained it well enough; so I'll try an example:

There are seven lands on my board. I tap two Islands to activate Thassa, making Kefnet unblockable. Then I play Gush for free by bouncing the tapped lands. I now have enough cards in hand to attack, so I swing with Kefnet. Second main: I play land for turn and tap Temple of the False God and Terrain Generator to play another land. I now have five open mana. So in essence, I just tapped two lands to draw two cards and make Kefnet unblockable.
