Marrow-Gnawer occurrence in decks from the last year

Marrow-Gnawer Discussion

Spell_Slam on Rathreos, God of the Colony

Living Death seems really good for your deck. It's both a board wipe and a reanimation spell for you. It gets even better with cards like Bojuka Bog, which you should definitely replace a swamp for.

In the same vein, Patriarch's Bidding will most likely get you a lot more targets than anyone else.

I think you could swap out Eldrazi Monument for Coat of Arms for insta-kills.

Marrow-Gnawer should be finding its way to the maindeck somewhere. Mirror Entity as well.

In terms of cuts, Bad Moon is not great, since just having another rat pumps the same amount of power. Same with Shared Triumph. If you care about toughness, great. If not, these are easy cuts. Lurrus seems a bit grindy for you and could be better served as more card draw or something.

Mirror Entity is uncreative but obviously good (doesn't work with Pack Rat tho)

Ratcatcher is imo pretty underwhelming at CMC 6, I'd replace it with Marrow-Gnawer

SQUID-MAGIC on Goblin´s poolparty and BBQ

I've got a few suggestions for your deck. But before I say anything, I wanna say great job! Some cards that would fit great in here are Goblin War Drums, Dragon Throne of Tarkir, and Emblem of the Warmind as a cheaper and more efficient Haste enabler. I don't have a Krenko Commander Deck, But I do have a Krenko, Mob Boss/Marrow-Gnawer deck. You can go check out some other cards that might fit in the deck there.

Marrow-Gnawer has an... interesting... phenomenon with Thornbite Staff. But going infinite is typically considered uncool for most people.

enpc: Thank you for the feedback. I do think adding a mana cost isn't necessary actually. As mentioned above, the ability is similar to Marrow-Gnawer. The two main differences besides the creature type are these:

1: Nastja isn't a squirrel herself, so you definitely need at least her token to go nuts.

2: Although she brings a food token with her, the tokens the activated ability produces aren't food, so you'll always need some external food source. Compare this to Marrow-Gnawer who can sacrifice his own tokens to activate.

Considering the fact that Marrow-Gnawer isn't the strongest card although there are plenty of powerful rats, I really feel like adding a mana cost to Nastja would weaken her unnecessarily.

TypicalTimmy: Thank you very much. The version shadow63 commented on sacrificed three foods for one squirrel. I like the new one better. She's somewhat similat to Marrow-Gnawer, but doesn't eat her squirrels.

Thanks for the upvote on my deck. Yours looks pretty cool, too. May I suggest Thornbite Staff? It's a great aristocrats card in general, and you could easily pull off the combo with Marrow-Gnawer.

Great call, I'll add it to the list.

Yeah, I'll try to do some kind of Aratstrocrat deck. I just realized yesterday Marrow-Gnawer goes infinite with Thornbite Staff.
