Typhoid Rats Discussion

If you look at the card costs and land mana graph you will notice that there is a large difference there, and you have 5 cards that actually use black mana

Typhoid Rats , which you could replace with more Sedge Scorpion Xathrid Slyblade which for the price of using black mana, doesn't accomplish anything special compared to something like Hornet Nest which can synergize with something like the Paragon of Eternal Wilds Indulgent Tormentor is very similar in that you could replace those with Heroes' Bane or Genesis Hydra Eternal Thirst which looks like it really accomplishes nothing at allI understand you like Garruk but you could cut down this deck to be just a splash of black in a ramp focused green deck

Also you have a lot of 1 of's, which can lead to inconsistency in draws, it is better to have a smaller amount of really reliable creatures rather than a bunch of separate ones, which will leave you in different situations every game.

I would suggest dropping the Typhoid Rats Xathrid Slyblade Indulgent Tormentor Eternal Thirst due to them making mana harder I also suggest removing Golden Hind because they are awful, Undergrowth Scavenger because this deck already isn't a graveyard deck, Karametra's Acolyte because you should already have enough Elvish Mystic or Satyr Wayfinder or Sylvan Caryatid by turn 4 to ramp up into bigger creatures by turn 4

to replace those 10 cards, you should probably add 2 more Satyr Wayfinder and Sedge Scorpion , at least 1 more Hornet Nest and Sylvan Caryatid and Paragon of Eternal Wilds because if all you have is green creatures remaining this buffs all of them and tramples your giant dudes, another Genesis Hydra , another Deadly Recluse because they are just really solid, Heroes' Bane as discussed

probably get another Llanowar Wastes and drop down to like maybe 2-3 swamps, or run an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to get the black for Garruk or any other black cards you want to keep running

maybe drop Soul of Zendikar for another Hydra Broodmaster ? Maybe some Mistcutter Hydra in there somewhere?

Well Chris that's me trying to help but you might find it a bit arrogant, I understand that.

Throat Slitter immediately comes to mind. My faerie deck was destroyed in my local tribal tournament by that guy. Your opponent likely won't block your Typhoid Rats , so it works nicely. Perhaps also Swarm of Rats ?

I don't think you need those mystics/llanowars at all, to be honest.

Druid's Deliverance and Sundering Growth might be an idea.

And Swarmyard .

you add cards by using double brackets. [ [ card here ] ]. - no spaces

I would look into replacing Typhoid Rats just because the card in itself is not that good.

Soul_Power on Discard or is it Discord.....

I would strongly consider running Disciple of Phenax if you're running 4 x Waste Not . The bonuses you get from Waste Not are all vastly different and unlike Thoughtseize , Disciple of Phenax allows you to force them to discard a land card to get the mana bonus from Waste Not , fully unlocking Waste Not 's potential. I would also run 4x Typhoid Rats as that is your answer to the likes of Loxodon Smiter , Sylvan Caryatid , and pre-monstrous Fleecemane Lion .

Thanks for the suggestions, nayrash5. I added in 4x Dragonskull Summit As for the Lightning Bolt , I thought with Dreadbore , Terminate , Desecration Demon , Mogis, God of Slaughter , and the deathtouch from Typhoid Rats I'd be able to get any major threats out of the way so I'd be able to kill my opponents quick with Rakdos, Lord of Riots or Desecration Demon and wouldn't need any burn spells.

+1 for black aggro! I have to echo ownageban as Brain Maggot is such a great card that drives people nuts. A cheaper Banisher Priest . I also think Typhoid Rats is highly underutilized and I really love Agent of the Fates . What can I say - deathouch is such a curveball in game, I love it.

Yeah, the Typhoid Rats was a mistake, i also thought in 3 of'em, but didn't realized there was only one after saving the deck (a dumb move, hahaha), i moved an Erebos's Emissary and a swamp, i know it's never recommendable to throw one land, but since the cmc moved down, i wanna see if it doesn't affect anything, if it, just add the land and remove something else. I think the same as you, that is a shame, the very best cards also costs an eye of the face, just like Thoughtseize (wich can help you a ton in your Waste Not deck) i see tremendously ridiculous that a set costs about $70 - $80, and only if the store is willing to give you the average price, and also for many other cards like Hero's Downfall or wichever you're thinking right now, the price is just a restraint! (sorry, i guess i let myself go, hahaha)

Thanks for the support!, btw gonna see your other deck too!, let's see if something comes to mind or at least help you with one point!
