Indatha Triome is illegal in this deck. I'd just swap it for Barren Moor.

Needs more Nightsky Mimic IMHO. And if you get a couple of those, probably you'd like to change a couple Journey to Nowhere or Syphon Life for Pillory of the Sleepless, and Gift of Orzhova to top you curve. Also you're not playing any source of card advantage, maybe you can take a couple 2 cmc critters out for Night's Whisper, or at least a couple cycling lands, like Barren Moor.

Oh, I also really like the split between Witch's Cottage and Barren Moor. They're basically the same thing even when the cottage enters tapped. You're not getting the card in your hand but you're getting the best card in your graveyard on top of your deck.

Dblegacy on Just Follow the Trail... wait wrong cycling

I’ve always loved cycling and the decks built around the mechanic. In fact, one of my favorite competitive decks of all time was built around cycling. (Of course, that was during a time where affinity had first appeared on the seen and the Gw deck was built to strictly hose those early affinity decks) have you considered Secluded Steppe Barren Moor Forgotten Cave they should all be modern legal. I would also suggest more cards that cycle for utility Djeru's Renunciation follows the game plan by being able to cycle but it’s a cheap utility card in a pinch. Astral Drift may give you a some decent utility as well. Gilded Light might be a good sideboard option. Overall a very fun looking deck!

Personally I think the logistics of the deck should always come down to playtesting and the local meta. That being said, here's what I'd change out from a glance. Also I avoided most of the discard to make room for card draw.

Remove - 15

Add - 15

  • 4 Swamp - Bringing the land count to 22 because a lot of cards in your deck still require mana for abilites. (Pack Rat, Bone-reader, Piper, Ink-Eyes)
  • 3 Ayara, First of Locthwain - Not 4 to avoid dead draws because it is legendary.
  • 4 Piper of the Swarm - Not legendary, earliest token generator, and works with pretty much everything in the deck/fuels Ayara and Marrow-Gnawler.
  • 2 Morbid Curiosity - To fill up your hand mid to late game.
  • 2 Read the Bones - More card draw

Bonus

You'll still have 20 rats in the deck, which should keep Marrow-Gnawler happy. Read the Bones and Morbid Curiosity are probably the easiest thing to change here for sideboard. I'd probably replace it with Throat Slitter and/or Okiba-Gang Shinobi (or two of the bonus cards) depending on the meta. Hope this helps and I wish you luck with you FNM =).

Haha Rat-ck, as it shall now be called, seems like an interesting idea maybe for another time.

So I guess my question now is what to take out/cut down on.

Taking out a number of rats, or spells like Despise Duress Tragic Slip. cuting down 1-2 of each may be enough?

Then putting in Morbid Curiosity x2? Ayara, First of Locthwain x2? Piper of the Swarm x2-3? Waste Not x2-3? Priest of Forgotten Gods (if it can fit in)

I put in 4 Barren Moor and threw in 2 Westvale Abbey  Flip just in case. Not sure if Oketra's Monument can fit in the deck but it would be rather interesting to get double the creatures out in order to keep feeding Ayara, First of Locthwain and maybe Priest of Forgotten Gods as well if I am in a bit of trouble.

I like all these cards you have suggested, and I greatly appreciate the help.

The logistics are going to be difficult.

No problem, glad to help.

I like Ayara, First of Locthwain for card draw and it works nicely with Piper of the Swarm. I think these two work fine without the Nezumi Shortfang. I think you deal enough damage with the other rats in the deck without jumping through hoops for the "Rat-Rack" (Rat-ck?), also I think the Nezumi Bone-Reader is a little better anyway since you can make people discard more than one a turn.

As far as card draw goes, Barren Moor is fine, Castle Locthwain though might conflict with your ninjas a bit if you plan on returning creatures to your hand. Morbid Curiosity, Priest of Forgotten Gods, and Read the Bones might be better options than potentially losing more than paying four mana (including tapping the castle) and life for one card. Morbid Curiosity works particularly well with your expensive ninjas and fuels Ayara (or sac Ayara for 3 cards in a pinch).

Westvale Abbey is a great finisher for this deck. You can pair together with Oketra's Monument to set it up even faster. Hope this helps.
