Typhoid Rats Discussion

Typhoid Rats, Gifted Aetherborn, Monastery Swiftspear, Ornithopter are just some examples of better 0-2 drops you can add to your deck, in multiple copies preferably, and within the price range you want

You're in black and not playing Duress...?
In this kind of voltron-ish build Gaze of Pain could be good...??
Typhoid Rats in the sideboard for creature based matchups

I'm a pretty big fan of tribal decks, and this seems like a ton of fun. I would recommend focussing your cards more though. For example, Pack Rat seems like one of the major players in this deck, I would definitely suggest bumping it up to 4 copies. Instead of spreading yourself thin, you should pick the best rats and run 4 of (most of) them. Typhoid Rats is another one I think should definitely be a 4 of.
I know they cost alot of mana, I think Marrow-Gnawer and Thornbite Staff should be bumped up to 2. Youu have alot of mana ramp, so that shouldn't be too much of a problem. But if it is, you could always run a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or two.
Also, no, this deck is not Modern legal, but I think it works better as a Casual deck. Too many of the key cards would have to removed for Modern play, I don't think the deck would be at all viable in Modern.
+1 from me though!

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?

I have a rather alright first strike deathtouch deck, What I see you're missing is odrich lunarch marshal and Glissa, the Traitor. Typhoid Rats works wonders as does Pharika's Chosen. Otherwise Glissa is a must have

So many no-no's.
Typhoid Rats is not really a modern card. If it is, then its role is to dissuade attacking, not to attack for 1 damage on turn 2. That makes it a kind of control card.
Piles of 4 cmc creatures: a couple of them, perhaps, if you don't mind being more midrange than aggro. In a deck with 20 lands, you average is to hit the first 3 land drops, then skip a turn, and have your 4th land on turn 5. On top, you have 4 lands that come into play tapped, meaning that you are even further behind. Removal is pretty good in modern, so you can expect something like Fanatic of Mogis to work poorly.
Madcap Skills. Out, all of them. Your creatures in general suffer from low toughness and a lack of protection. Trying to put an aura on them is just letting your opponent 2-for-1 you without getting anything in return.
No Lightning Bolts. Yes, it's a boring card, played by every deck that has the least bit of red mana in modern. That's because it's a very good card. It can handle early creatures, or go to the face - pretty good for an instant at 1 mana, huh?
