have every card in your deck be a Shadowborn Apostle/Relentless Rats/Rat Colony/Persistent Petitioners, with one Laboratory Maniac, and then just exile your entire deck and win! (I think I'ma build that deck now, actually)

let's use Crackling Drake to it's full potential!

oeliberti- I agree, more draw is needed if I am to survive a swarm wipe. Erebos, God of the Dead is a must. Not only do I get the needed draw, I level the playing field by taking the ability to gain life from my opponent; especially since the deck is lacking in that mechanic without a heavy-cost Artifact on the board.

But where to out the other 2 I need? After going from Relentless Rats down to Rat Colony, I took a look at my original land base..

Do you think it'd be worth adding another Piper of the Swarm and then more rats? I think a Rat Menace deck could be a whole lot of fun, since they're so low cost. And cards like Rat Colony or Relentless Rats get stronger as you add more of them to the field.

I agree, rats are amazing :)!

For such an amazing theme, you should include some amazing ramp and lands. You do have a mono deck, so I understand lands can be a bit difficult, however I have some in mind that may be of interest to you.

As for ramp, I would consider some of the following.

Also in general, I would consider adding Rat Colony, Necropotence, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Intent. Some of the cards I mentioned previously may be on the expensive side, but I promise they are worth it and can help your deck perform much much better! If you want any more advice or have any questions feel free to post them on my wall, I'd love to help and I check tapped out often. Also feel free to check out some of my decks, (Double Trouble EDH! If you like it consider upvoting it, or giving me any suggestions. Anyways, hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day!

Why not use Relentless Rats in place of Rat Colony? For only one more mana, they have the benefit of increasing their toughness, as well as their power.

npcoats1 Lost Legacy let's you name Rat Colony to exile all 25 copies from your deck, hand, field and graveyard and then it has you draw that many card (25). If you have Psychic Corrosion out that card causes each opponent to discard two cards from their library each time you draw a card. So by drawing 25 cards with lost legacy you force each opponent to mill 50. Dimir Machinations is only there for it's transmute ability that allows you to search your library for a card with converted Mana cost of three and add it to your hand. This let's you search your library for lost legacy or psychic corrosion us you don't have it in hand.
