Typhoid Rats Discussion

Typhoid Rats is the sole reason have won multiple games. Trading typhoid rats for anything they throw is worth. It's really stupid but I really like the card in the deck. 4 urborg is too many. And even with 20 land, I still seem to get extreme value out of Raven's Crime. I feel like if I ran any more lands I would be flooded every game without spells to spend it on.

Typhoid Rats is really bad; it really does nothing in this deck.

If you're running 4x Raven's Crime and 4x Smallpox then 24 lands is a minimum. 20 lands and you will never be able to take advantage of Raven's Crime and Smallpox will put you just as far behind as your opponent instead of giving you the advantage.

2-4x Mutavault and 2-3x Ghost Quarter are very good in 8-Rack when paired with 4x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

Murderous Cut is good removal, even if you can only run 1-2 copies.

I would replace 1 Typhoid Rats for a fourth Ruthless Ripper, because of obvious reasons. And since most of your creatures already have deathtouch, what do you think of removing Coat with Venom for some Dark Dabbling?

hempel I don't really play 1v1, so early game presence really doesn't matter as much. Producing 3 mana is like that hasn't proven to be all that useful for me in the past. Better things can fill those slots, because they're borderline useless late game. And even if I was concerned about it, it would be Vampire Nighthawk and Typhoid Rats to defend myself till I was set up. I don't like Contamination in this because I don't have the disposable creatures to power it. In fact it's mostly legendary black mainstays. Otherwise I like the card. In that sense, I probably will find room for Ascendant Evincar because I do have one and was looking for a use for him. Strata Scythe I had considered, but I left it out just because I ran out of space. I might find room for it.

O-Higgs that was my original thought too. I have seen Sheoldred, Whispering One work as a commander before, so I know it can be done, but Erebos, God of the Dead would be the more logical commander simply because he doesn't cost a lot and its difficult to get rid of. Either way, with all the tutors, they will both it the field.

The biggest thing I see with the deck is the mana base. The tri-lands would be a great addition without getting to expensive. I also find Amulet of Vigor to be very helpful with all the come into play tapped lands you end up having to run in a more budget 5 color deck, though it's starting to go up in price do to modern. Joiner Adept and Prismatic Omen are also great mana fixers. also 35 lands feels a little low for the deck. You really want to hit your land drops in this kind of deck. I would shoot for around 38 to 40.

The deck also seems to have a lot of filler cards (ex. Typhoid Rats, Willbreaker) I would look at getting more cards that synergize with the gods.

Here is my god deck it's not in anyway competitive but it is a lot of fun to play. I stayed pretty true to the god theme adding in the Lorwyn/Shadowmoor deities as well. Which also work great with the gods for their devotion.

So here are some ideas.

Take out the banners and add in some dual lands or Nomad Outpost.

Bloodsoaked Champion would have great synergy with Butcher of the Horde, but it could push the price up a bit. Flamewake Phoenix is also an option.

Battle Brawler could work well here.

Maybe even Shambling Goblin (sac to Butcher, give creature -1/-1 and then your choice of vigilance/haste/lifelink) or Typhoid Rats for an early blocker.
