wallisface on Cheap Rat Deck Take 1

1 week ago

Some thoughts:

  • 20 lands is waaay too low considering the number of 4-and-5-drops you’re running. If feels like you’d want 23 lands at a minimum.

  • Cosmos Elixir feels pretty bad here. 99% of the time its a pricey 4 mana just to gain a little bit of life.

  • Relentless Rats and Rat Colony really want to be in a deck with more than 16 rats in it. Have you considered Pack Rat? It could be useful for pitching your discard spells after your opponent is empty handed.

  • Megrim is unlikely to deal more than 4 damage (and against faster decks, likely only 0-2). Not sure if that’s a concern for you?

Delirium Skeins, Geth's Grimoire, Megrim, Pain Magnification... depends on how crazy you want to go. Demonfire might be good as well

To me that is definitely something you can get creative with. Focusing on zombie generation, discarding your opponents, Megrim -like effects. And it might actually be strong enough for decks like Nekusar, the Mindrazer to play him in non cEDH settings.

Also they have printed Illuna, Apex of Wishes - so I don't think it is completely off the table to have a Zombie Knight Wizard.

Liliana's Caress is better than Megrim but you want to deal damage via the Racks. So I would Cut megrim instead.

Thanks for the upvote, much appreciated and I absolutely love the Head Games combo, as far as I know I'm the first to figure out that one.

Infernal Darkness is good but I don't like the cumulative upkeep of since that's mana I could be using for a spell or effect. I do have one in my binder just in case.

Mind Twist is a great card in the deck but I don't like the mana intensive side of X.

Ill-Gotten Gains already got a foil one, amazing card. Considering it.

Cavern of Souls and Boseiju, Who Shelters All - How did I overlook these!?

As for Megrim like cards, I want to thoroughly test them out before cutting them. I figure if I make someone discard their hand that's automatic 14 damage.

Extraplanar Lens I run in my Avacyn, Krenko and Korlash builds (On my profile) and I've never had issues running 24 or less basics with it. If I need to I might up the land count to 32.

Thank you so much for your feed back, gave me a lot to think about wish list some stuff.

With how much discard you're running, I thought I'd suggest Megrim Liliana's Caress and Fell Specter so you can bleed your opponent to death. Works great with Dark Deal which is already in your build.

Hey buddy,

I've got a couple of ideas for your build. Megrim and Liliana's Caress for bleed whenever they discard. Mind Slash for a sac outlet for Mindslicer and you choose what they discard for 1 black and Geth's Grimoire so you draw off their discard.
