Typhoid Rats Discussion

iLegendGames on Sultai Delve Control

I used to play a deck in this flavor back in ktk standard. I would try to make your list more consistant, by taking out some of the 2-ofs and upping them to four ofs. Scuttling Doom Engine, Rakshasa Vizier and Typhoid Rats could probably cut in favor of 2 Sultai Emissary, 1 Silumgar Assassin and maybe try 3 Sidisi, Brood Tyrant. I feel that the Soulflayer + Gurmag Swiftwing package could be replaced with some number of Tasigur, the Golden Fang and Gurmag Angler for added power. Dig Through Time beats Treasure Cruise most of the time. These all make the list more powerful, so some of these may not want changing if it would become too good for the 'kitchen table'.

In response to blockers being declared I cast Quicken followed by Bone Splinters.

I would drop some basic land and pick up Caves of Koilos . Painlands are great in a trisk deck to make sure you dont kill yourself. Now to be honest I have never played modern (I'm like 2 months old to mtg) but it seems like you have too many defenders. you are dedicating 16 of your cards to defenders that can just be killed with removal spells. Get some more removal of your own. Without a way to bring back Typhoid Rats its basically used as a risky removal spell.

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.

Hi Panzerforge!

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.
