goodjazz on Raining Deathtouch [Suggestions Welcome!]

A thing I forgot: get in a fourth Ruthless Ripper and only take 3 Typhoid Rats, since the ripper is basically a Typhoid Rats with an additional abillity. I would also get in a fourth Archetype of Courage to get a better chance to draw this cruel deathtouch + firststrike combo.

I play-tested your deck, and I found it needed a lot of mana, so cards were often dead in hand. Luckily, some of them can be replaced for others, like -2 Meditation Puzzle and +2 Rest for the Weary. If you are just using the Whip of Erebos for life link, there are sorceries for one turn, and it shouldn't be too hard to find other creatures with lifelink, such as Divinity of Pride or Rhox Faithmender. there is a strong focus on white, and not much black. Here I suggest 2 possible routes. since most of the black cards, except for Sanguine Bond, can be replaced with white cards, Trained Caracal for Child of Night, and the black cards eally aren't essential anyway you can make it a mono-white deck, or add more black, such as Typhoid Rats for protection.

ClutchWorks is right about the shamans and those 2 cards to cut, I thought you had Vampire Nighthawks in your deck already since he is pretty much a auto include in any black/deathtouch deck. It just too good of a card to not have. The Thornbite Staff should only be 2x since you ideally want to see only one.

Swarmyard will make your Deadly Recluse and Typhoid Rats pretty much the biggest pain in the asses. Hornet Nest would be just that much worse if u add some of those

Dark Confidant instead of Typhoid Rats. You need the card advantage. Also maybe 1 or 2 Phyrexian Obliterator as a finisher. UB isn't the best colour combination for Delver, but you could try BUG, for Abrupt Decay and Tarmogoyf.

I like the budget theme, and I like Chasm Skulker.

I would recommend to replace Typhoid Rats with Ruthless Ripper, since it's absolutly better and still on a budget (about 10 cent a piece).

Think about mass revomals like Drown in Sorrow or Bile Blight to keep the way free for your Chasm Skulker.

where are your Typhoid Rats add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx you can use Mana Confluence if you can take the points that way you can use it for mana soon as it enters the field to me it looks like you are trying too much you want the mana elves or better yet Sylvan Caryatid you need some sort of draw effect you have a lot of one drops which is good for the agro style but you need something like Dragon Throne of Tarkir also since you are using black Master of the Feast and Whip of Erebos try that out and tell e what you thinkbut me personally I play standard this deck can easily be turned into a standard deck with just a few modifications and you can win fnm easily

It's almost always better to have playsets (the max number - 4) of cards instead of one or two of everything, so I would start by replacing the cards you don't like with more copies of the cards that you do.

A few things I can see:-your deck gains life-it likes to kill things-it wants more card draw

Going by these observations, I would suggest that you play four copies of these cards:

Typhoid Rats - pseudo-removal

Ajani's Pridemate - gets bigger

Wall of Essence - shuts down attackers

Eternal Thirst - makes your stuff get big (this on Pridemate is looking really nice)

Child of Night - good two drop, especially in this deck

Sign in Blood - MOAR CARDZ

Also, it's not M15, but see if you can't get your hands on some Doom Blade or Terror. They're way better than what you have in here right now, and I guarantee you some of the more experienced players you know will have a few lying around
