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 love playing the long game. My friend has a cool Golos land deck that aims to win by Maze's End. I hate playing against stupid turn three win combo decks or decks based around Relentless Rats. I hate quick combo/control decks. I strangely don't mind aggro.

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.

Ritual of Blood


As an additional cost to cast ~ pay X life. Add X black mana to your mana pool. Draw a card. A deck can have up to 10 cards named ~ in it.

Create a card that you can run as many as you want in your deck ( likeRelentless Rats or Shadowborn Apostle)

Azor's Original Guildpact

Enchantment - Saga

1 - While this Saga is on 1, whenever a creature attacks or a player casts a spell, Scry 1

2-3 - Draw a card and gain 2 life

4 - At the beginning of the end step, players can't cast spells and creatures can't attack until your next turn.

How's that for the original guildpact? It's Azorius, and it stops conflict, but not permanently.

Create a nonbasic land card that has the ability "You can have any number of this card in your deck", and does something interesting when you have a lot of them. Think of Persistent Petitioners or Relentless Rats. It should be conceivable that you would be able to win using a deck made of only these land cards.
