Yeah, I’ve never been a fan of the Rat Colony/Relentless Rats strategy, any deck that wants to play out the exact same way every game is just boring to me. You make good arguments for Rancid Rats and Crypt Rats though, and Corrupt would probably make a good one-of, as I agree this deck could use a finisher. Thanks for all the suggestions.

You're essentially playing Mono Black Control, so most of what works for that deck should work for you too. Corrupt to finish the game? Some card draw, to gain even more card advantage, like Sign in Blood or Read the Bones ? I was thinking about Rat Colony , but that's possibly too easy to kill. Rancid Rats might be nice instead of Typhoid Rats , it has better synergy with Okiba-Gang Shinobi . Crypt Rats is always nice, it can clear the board when your opponent has better stuff than you, and can potentially kill your opponent.

I really like the idea behind this deck.

How are you planning on handling something like Electrickery , Echoing Decay , or Echoing Truth ? The rats also trade with tokens or elves which means you can't attack with anything other than your gnawers without impacting your Gary plan.

Dealing with flyers will also be challenging. Maybe it's worth adding more removal at the expense of the draw from Dusk Legion Zealot ?

It might be worth thinking about some cards like Ruin Rat or Rancid Rats for the deathtouch to deal with Anglers. Also, Rancid Rats gives you some evasion which may help in getting monarch back in the event that you lose it.

I think Gnat Miser would be an interesting inclusion if you feel like you want more on the hand disruption package. Rotting Rats is a symmetric effect but it has unearth to give an extra activation of its ETB and given your card draw you can use that to your advantage, or before you toss our Gary you can unearth them to pump up your devotion.

What do you think about Etrata, the Silencer from the upcoming Guilds of Ravnica? She seems promising. I would also look at Invisible Stalker, Dimir Infiltrator, Rancid Rats and Vampire Cutthroat.

CardTyrant! I love this deck and decided to build it myself with a few alterations after playing it with my group. Have you considered Altar of the Brood for an instant speed table library mill? With all your single creature pump spells, an infect creature like Septic Rats could also be a welcome addition instead of something less impactful like Typhoid Rats or Rancid Rats. You can even just have it ping people to fatal infect damage using Thornbite Staff after it gets big enough! That especially helps after the anthem effects(i.e. Caged Sun, Door of Destinies, Eldrazi Monument, etc.) makes it so Marrow-Gnawer + Thornbite Staff no longer kills your rats to enable the infinite combo. I also really enjoy Torment of Hailfire with all the mana we're generating. There are a couple more things i've changed in mine, so please let me know what you think! Here's mine.
