@hivemind899 - hmm.. that's a good ramp creature too! Thanks! I'll definitely consider it..

@rafiq996 - I'll keep that in my maybeboard as well, thanks!

@dogBITE17 - yeah, I'm thinking of the versatility of that card over Tragic Slip.. Thanks for reminding me

manbearpig90 I meant that Tragic Slip would supplement Fatal Push as a 2 of if I'm running 2 copies of Blade of the Bloodchief. Otherwise, I'm not sure what other viable removal spells I should run two of to replace Tragic Slip. Terminate, maybe?

Tragic Slip isn't very good imo. Fatal Push is more reliable as a 1 mana removal spell

manbearpig90 What about Tragic Slip for removal? Especially as it gets around indestructible.

I've taken out the Aether Vials and brought in the Blade of the Bloodchiefs. My gut feeling is that two to three copies should be enough in this deck.

Thank you for the feedback everyone! I'm excited to see how this develops.

So I'm very new here myself and I mostly play EDH (Commander), but I can help on formatting decklists.

  1. Rather sort your cards by cardtype or role in your deck
  2. Some of the card costs are not within the category (see Dark Ritual)
  3. Consider removal like Tragic Slip, Doom Blade, Go for the Throat and such
  4. Drawing cards is a great way to not miss any landdrops. Altar's Reap is my all time favorite for black decks, also Bloodgift Demon is a classy way to vibe with rats.
  5. Looking at Duress I had rats like Rotting Rats and Stronghold Rats in my mind. Sure the first make you discard too but if you want to let someone suffer a little that's a fine price to pay. Speaking of suffering, maybe Mindcrank might be your style
  6. Mana I can help with. Carddraw is always an indirect manafix but Cabal Ritual, Magus of the Coffers or even the famous Cabal Coffers directly tend to the problem. Hope I could help! I'll put some cards as suggestion :)

Lamplighter on Let's see what kind of trouble we can get into

Haha Rat-ck, as it shall now be called, seems like an interesting idea maybe for another time.

So I guess my question now is what to take out/cut down on.

Taking out a number of rats, or spells like Despise Duress Tragic Slip. cuting down 1-2 of each may be enough?

Then putting in Morbid Curiosity x2? Ayara, First of Locthwain x2? Piper of the Swarm x2-3? Waste Not x2-3? Priest of Forgotten Gods (if it can fit in)

I put in 4 Barren Moor and threw in 2 Westvale Abbey  Flip just in case. Not sure if Oketra's Monument can fit in the deck but it would be rather interesting to get double the creatures out in order to keep feeding Ayara, First of Locthwain and maybe Priest of Forgotten Gods as well if I am in a bit of trouble.

I like all these cards you have suggested, and I greatly appreciate the help.

The logistics are going to be difficult.

I realize I'm coming to the party late, but I have one thing I would point out.

Indestructible creatures are a thing.

Whenever I run mono-black, I try very hard to have stuff in there to deal with them. I also think that 8 creature removal cards is about right, but I would have 3 or 4 of them be -X/-X cards, to kill indestructible stuff, since Grasp of Darkness will kill moderate-toughness standard creatures to still be useful.

I do see that you have some Disfigures in the sideboard right now, but you have 22 removal cards in your 75. Only 6 of them can kill an indestructible creature, and the Tragic Slip pair only will go off some of the time. I LOVE Grasp of Darkness and cards like it, because "destroy" cards usually have some limitation, like color (dark banishing is weak against another Black deck) or artifact status.

-X/-X cards rarely do.

I'm not an expert, but I think it's something to keep in mind, especially if your friends love to play Black.

I have Vindicate in there, and i love Tymna the Weaver but she is a little expensive for me right now, i will have to try and trade for her. I will get an Alesha, Who Smiles at Death and switch her out with the champion, I also like Tragic Slip and it will go in for Liliana's Triumph . Thanks!
