TheMeadiator: Thanks! It is a lot of fun to pilot.

I have gone back and forth on Chittering Witch. This deck has become pretty streamlined/tuned so it is hard to find cards to replace. In this deck, a 4 mana creature should have a resounding impact, but this card doesn't do hard work until you use its ability. The 2/2 is irrelevant, the deck focuses more on Rat Colonies than tokens, and although 2 mana for -2/-2 sounds like a good investment, you would have to pay 6 mana to get rid of a 5/5. Black has significantly better options.

What a great deck!! I love the name, the theme - everything. This looks like a blast to play.

Have you thought about Chittering Witch as a sac outlet for all your rats? Could nuke something big, depending on how many tokens/colonies you have out.

Either way, this deck seems like so much fun.

I see your deck is budget, and I wanted to suggest some budget inclusions for cards that would create tokens that also trigger Ayara's drain ability.

Chittering Witch creates RAT tokens!!

Abhorrent Overlord Generates a LOT of harpy tokens as your devotion to black will be large with Ayara in play.

Rise of the Dread Marn is a great way to refuel your board with black creatures after a board wipe or large death effect.

Lab Rats is a great way to slowly add more rats to the field with enough mana for the buyback price.

Josu Vess, Lich Knight can be brutal with Ayara on the battlefield if the kicker cost is paid.

Necrotic Hex can be a good board clearing effect that also makes black creatures.

Your deck could also use some cards to help find your enjoyed rat cards. Some budget options in black include Diabolic Tutor , Mausoleum Secrets , and Ratcatcher !

Some cards you're using aren't especially great in a singleton format. Cards like Compound Fracture and Hunt for Specimens could be replaced with Defile and Callous Bloodmage respectively.

Have fun playing EDH! The best suggestion is to play with others and learn what cards you like and dislike using and adapt with new cards that fit your budget.

Ayara, First of Locthwain has witch vibes and Ophiomancer and Chittering Witch and Grim Haruspex kinda synergize. Surprised Cauldron Familiar isnt already in here?

Going a little off topic:

I don't understand why they still do not have a creature type for witch. They can show up on cards as shamans, wizards, clerics, spellshapers and even warlocks of all things while still being called a witch.

This makes very little sense when since even in the 11th-12th century the word warlock was commonly associated with gender so that witches generally referred to women and their male counterparts were called warlocks. The word witch does not normally carry a gender association but warlock does. So naming a card with Witch in it's name then calling it a warlock as a creature type seems counter-intuitive.

For example: Chittering Witch appears as an elderly female in the art but has the warlock creature type.

Or they could at least just call them all wizards or shamans or something so they shared a type at least instead of them having so many different types. Complicates going tribal with them.

It seems like Warlocks tend to create tokens, like Alela, Artful Provocateur , Chittering Witch , Liliana's Devotee , Piper of the Swarm , and Tempting Witch (5/11 Warlocks). So, I think this works:

Soul of the Fen

Creature - Spirit Warlock

Whenever a creature enters the battlefield from a graveyard, create a 1/1 black Spirit creature token.


I'd like to see a another card to represent Niko Aris , on another plane. I love the character and hope to see more of them. Please give context to your design. Thanks!

Last changes:

Black Sun's Zenith -> Grim Tutor; Crumbling Ashes -> Insidious Dreams Added more tutors, which means more chances to hit the win cons combos

Bontu's Monument -> Jet Medallion Far more efficient for ramp

Whip of Erebos -> Nightmare Shepherd The whip looks better than it actually is. I don't usually attack so the "lifelink" aspect is basically useless. The reanimation effect is too expensive, The Shepherd looks more efficient at what it is supposed to do.

Phyrexian Altar, Tombstone Stairwell -> Ashnod's Altar, Nim Deathmantle The point here is to include an infinite combo with creatures like Sengir Autocrat, Weaponcraft Enthusiast and Chittering Witch. Basically you can keep recasting the creature thanks to the Nim Deathmantle by sacrificing the tokens to the Ashnod's Altar. With a Blood Artist effect on the table is game over. Not the most efficient combo in here, but a solution that may become the backup plan.

This is the closest built from the final version of the deck i had in mind when i started building it. The last two changes would be Phyrexian Arena -> Necropotence and Necroskitter -> Contamination. I don't know If i want to get there because this deck looks pretty good imo as it is now.
