Typhoid Rats Discussion

I do really like your deck. Got one similiar. I would consider replacing Typhoid Rats for Ravenous Rats or Rotting Rats. I have also some more creatures. How's ur deck going, and how's it working after removing Quest for the Nihil Stone?

I like! +1
Ideas: You have nothing at 1 CMC. That could cost you against aggressive decks. Typhoid Rats could be a good choice. You need to get a Gray Merchant of Asphodel out ASAP so you can start copying it, but it's your most expensive card to cast, at 5 CMC. You need some Dark Rituals or something similar to get things accelerated. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth could help you with your spells that have BB in the cost, without slowing you at all. Fated Infatuation, with UUU cost, is pretty color intensive. I'd consider trading 1 or 2 of them for Clone. It costs 1 more but may prove easier to cast.

I'd by lying if I said that I had any plan for specific threats that are tailored towards removal of indestructible creatures. In Standard, what do people who transform Westvale Abbey Flip do when their opponent topdecks Clip Wings? They lose Ormendahl, Profane Prince Flip.
This build is made to be fun, super-cheap deck that is a blast to play when it's against good competition. On the other hand, I'm sure it would fall flat on its face against decks that have strong answers to Phylactery Lich. Exile would be the biggest problem, honestly.
But anyways, I did a quick look over the deck, and it's apparent that the only plan this deck has to combat any of the cards you listed is to have another creature on the board. Fortunately, Typhoid Rats frequently stays on the battlefield, just sitting there as a deterrent to prospective attackers.

Hand of Silumgar and Typhoid Rats are bland chump blockers and not much else. Ruthless Ripper isn't that useful either, replace it with Silumgar Assassin, at least that card can be used as unexpected spot removal.

Walker of Secret Ways can help protect your ninjas by bouncing them back to your hand if needed, and lets you peek at your opponent's hand. I would also put one or two of your Throat Slitters in the mainboard as well. Not a huge fan of Typhoid Rats in this build, since they can just chump those rather than letting you play a ninja. I prefer Tormented Soul and Nether Traitor, which is a bit pricier, but can be broght back rom the grave. Distortion Strike can be very helpful as well, and the rebound ability makes it even better.

Hmm I am really not sure where this deck is going. Viridian Longbow and Typhoid Rats (or other deathtouch) is of course a great combo - but you need to tap it for it. Skirsdag High Priest also needs to tap creatures for a totally different approach.
Also I do not see any tutor card.. this means you will ned to count on luck or cheating to consistently get the cards that you only put in once in your deck. Sure, tutors tend to be expensive, but you can also budget-substiute them with card draw and so far you don't really do that either.
The combo with Nested Ghoul is nice, but be aware that you need someone without deathtouch for that too and only Tormented Soul or Nested Ghoul himslef would be worth. This is not very consistent either, because in the total it is a very slow and expensive combo: 5 mana for Nested Ghoul, 3 mana for equipping Viridian Longbow (and manybe 3 more to unequip it or 1 more to cast it) means that coss you at least 8 mana (or maybe even 11) to actually start geting out 2/2 tokens. Thinking of 2 mana is good for a 2/2 token, it takes at least 4 rounds to finally pay off - sorry that is too damn long in my eyes and it does not even include the "costs" of tapping the ghoul every turn and also not having the Viridian Longbow available for the deathtouch combo to trigger morbid.

Maybe instead of Ravenous Rats, put in Typhoid Rats. They have the same cost, and since it is only a 1/1 that has deathtouch, your opponent will be afraid to attack you with bigger creatures because then they will be sacrificing their creature to kill a 1/1.
