Throat Slitter Discussion

Haldarious on Stealth Master Sygg

Neat stuff. Have you considered Myriad? Broodbirth Viper, Banshee of the Dread Choir, Blade of Selves?

Also maybe look into some cards with on-hit effects other than draw and discard. Throat Slitter, Ashling, the Extinguisher, Silent-Blade Oni and more. I'm currently brainstorming a Vela the Night-Clad edh based on similar concepts. Who btw may fit here.

One last bit: the Shadow, Ninjutsu and Cipher mechanics may have something to offer.

I don't have any new suggestions for you, but, I think revising the number of each card in your deck to improve its consistency.Here's my opinion:

-2 Mistblade Shinobi-1 Throat Slitter-3 Ornithopter-1 Jace, Unraveler of Secrets

+1 Spellstutter Sprite+2 Higure, the Still Wind+1 Walker of Secret Ways+1 Ninja of the Deep Hours+1 Skullsnatcher+1 Okiba-Gang Shinobi

Why? Because I think you have enough unblockable critters to get the ninjas out, I think it's better that you have more of a toolbox approach to it, running 4 Higure, and letting him fetch any ninja you needed, and running only 1 each of the other ninjas (except ninja of the deep hours, because that dude is tech).

No problem, here is what you can do:

  • -4 Elixir of Immortality This is a sideboard card against mill

  • -3 Doubling Chant I can see why you'd want it, when it is good it is really good. But it is expensive and your board has to be good already to make this worth the mana. In long and drawn-out games with a boardstall this could be what breaks the tie, in every other game you'd probably want something else. While tempting, I think your deck is better without it. You can also dismiss your dual lands and have much better mana this way

  • -1 Thrumming Stone A basic rule of thumb in Magic is play 3 copies of a card you want to see once and 4 copies of a card you want to see in multiples. 1 Stone in play is enough, more is already overkill. It is generally very rare to ever run 4 copies of a 5 mana card without any mana ramp

  • -2 Marrow-Gnawer Good to break a boardstall or pump your Pack Rat, but 4 copies is a bit much for the high cost. I'd probably play none, but if your games go long this might be good

  • -2 Ratcatcher 6 Mana is too much for a card that has to survive a turn before doing anything

  • Cut lands to ~22

  • Swap Despise for Duress. Black is the color with the most answers to creatures, but you have no artifact/enchantment removal or counterspells. That is why non-creature spells are more dangerous, you want to discard the likes of Wrath of God instead of some creature. YOu can have Despise in the sideboard if your opponent runs almost only creatures

From this point on there are basically 3 ways you can take the deck

  1. Discard and control. Chittering Rats, Rotting Rats, Ravenous Rats. Pair that with some Ninjutsu like Throat Slitter and recycle their enter the battlefield effects, have backup removal like Fatal Push or Victim of Night to keep their board under control. You kill them slowly and painfully by killing their threats and shredding their hand

  2. All-in Relentless Rats. Close to what you already have here, maybe throw in a Metallic Mimic or 2. You basically go super-wide and try to land your rippler. Ravenous Rats, Pack Rat with Thrumming Stone, ~8 discard spells and 4-5 removal spells to keep you alive until your board is overwhelming. You'll have around 14-16 Relentless Rats in your deck this way

  3. Aggressive Rats. Swarm of Rats, Mogis's Marauder, Typhoid Rats, Bad Moon. Probably splash Red for Gobhobbler Rats and Lightning Bolt. In this build you just try to kill your opponent as fast as you can. I can't really say Rats are very impressive as an aggressive tribe though.

Less Pharika's Cure, more Devour in Shadow. The life loss won't be an issue; you do have lifelink critters.

Also, I vote for ninjas, since you have creatures with pwoerful ETB effects and/or evasion, throwing one or two ninja in there could be randomly good. I'd swap out Indulgent Tormentor for Okiba-Gang Shinobi or Throat Slitter.

Also, since you need black devotion, maybe swap out Doom Blade for Executioner's Capsule or Seal of Doom?

I think that Throat Slitter might deserve more than 1 copy. Perhaps something like Invisible Stalker to guarantee your Ninjutsu? Otherwise, looks good :)

Ratta Tat Tat Tat. Dont forget Pack Rat!

Lands:

Swarmyard seems perfect too.

Some more tribal/creature pump:

Metallic Mimic for counters on all of your rats and Adaptive Automaton for a similar lord effect. Akroma's Memorial, Stoneforge Masterwork, Eldrazi Monument, Bad Moon

Answers:

Attrition, Eliminate the Competition, Mutilate

Card Draw:TBD!!!

Ramp:

Liliana of the Dark Realms, Sol Ring, Black Market

Rat Creature Options:

Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Crypt Rats, Throat Slitter, Patron of the Nezumi, Plague of Vermin, Pack Rat

INFECT:

Ichor Rats, Septic Rats

Potential Cuts (In my opinion):

Prototype Portal Confused on why this is here. Rhystic Tutor Will almost always be countered in multiplayer. Geth's Verdict Better options for targeted removal Murder Howling Mine Black doesnt want to help everyone. Phyrexian Arena FTW.
