Hey Indie,

First off I really like the lands you have assembled and the suggestions from SufferFromEDHD are all good.

You are definitely going to want an artifact ramp package.

Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone, Gilded Lotus, Thran Dynamo

Special Mention to Nyx Lotus, it could be good being in mono black. and Jeweled Lotus, pays for your commander for free on turn 1 even.

Sword of the Animist is not bad ramp at all and buffs yours rats

Commander's Plate might be cute.

Liliana of the Dark Realms, makes sure you always get a land drop and could make your swamps tap for four.

Chittering Witch if your playing with more opponents.

Crypt Ghast is sort of ramp, but doubles your swamps. Very good in mono black.

Dauthi Voidwalker is not on theme at all but is just sooo much value in a two cost card I have to recommend it.

God-Eternal Bontu is excellent draw power in the right situation.

Dont forget you can run any number of Relentless Rats

Gray Merchant of Asphodel will heal you up a lot and hurt your opponents

Krav, the Unredeemed is also great card draw.

Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, has card draw, removal, and proliferate all on one card

Deadly Rollick, potentially free removal

Defile, cheap good removal

Thrilling Encore saves you from a board wipe or lets you bring everything back after sacrificing it all to like God-Eternal Bontu

Phyrexian Arena some ok card draw.

Bojuka Bog if you are worried about graveyards

Mutilate, a good board wipe in mono black

Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Sign in Blood, are a great draw package for mono black

Toxic Deluge a great board wipe for when things need resetting, and you could follow with Thrilling Encore and get it all back

Syphon Mind is great draw if your playing with more players

Victimize - is really really strong, get rid of one weak thing for two of your best things

Yawgmoth's Will - lets you treat your graveyard like your hand for a turn

Lord Skitter, Sewer King makes rats

Marrow-Gnawer - lets you make lots of rats

Infectious Inquiry - good draw and gives poison

Ogre Slumlord - makes rats when your creatures or your opponents creatures die.

Tangled Colony - if your opponent has to block it or it dies to like Blasphemous Act will make you rats

Vraska's Fall removal and poison counter

Drown in Ichor removal and poison

Bontu's Monument all your creatures cost less

Rat Colony can have any number and they buff themselves, and cost less mana than Relentless Rats

Typhoid Rats deathtouch rat opponents wont want to block

Crypt Rats can board wipe but can also win the game if you give it infect, doesnt work with your commander because toxic specifies combat damage but does work if you give it infect and deal damage with it's ability.

Ratcatcher tutors rats, and gives you card advantage

Ashcoat of the Shadow Swarm - buffs your rats and lets you get rats back

Wave of Rats has blitz and reanimates itself

Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni rat that steals opponents stuff

Nashi, Moon Sage's Scion rat that steals opponents stuff

Adaptive Automaton is a rat and buffs rats

Okiba-Gang Shinobi rat makes opponents discard and has ninjutsu

Filth gives all your rats swampwalk pairs well with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

Dark Ritual lets your get a head start or some extra mana a turn you need it

Tainted Strike instant speed infect, funny in multiplayer because you can use it on anyone's creatures.

Phyresis Outbreak gives poison and might kill opponents creatures

Feed the Swarm enchantment removal in black

Vat Emergence gets a creature back and proliferates

Spread the Sickness destroys a creatures and proliferates

Pact of the Serpent strong tribal card draw

Living Death swap graveyards with battlefields, great after sacrificing your whole board to draw cards

Skullclamp sack small rats for card draw

Thrumming Stone if you go the Relentless Rats or Rat Colony route

Coat of Arms your rats will be huge

Bolas's Citadel this card is dumb lol, lots of casting power and then you hit Gray Merchant of Asphodel and keep going lol

Icon of Ancestry kinda draw buffs rats...is ok

Contagion Engine proliferate twice each time you activate

Eldrazi Monument gives creatures flying indestructible and +1/+1

Grafted Exoskeleton gives a creature infect, great with Crypt Rats

Sword of Truth and Justice proliferate sword

Bad Moon buff all black creatures, opponents too

Phyresis gives infect again good with Crypt Rats

Greed card draw

Vraska, Betrayal's Sting proliferate planes walker

I know that's a lot but hopefully gave you some ideas to work with!

indieinside I respect your decision not to include those cards, understandable. Repeats can be boring. For potential cuts....

Vraska, Betrayal's Sting - Costs too much and no synergy with the deck. Profileration isn't a theme, creature to treasure is cool but not efficient removal. Ult is irrelevant.

Liliana of the Dark Realms - +1 is swamp tutor to hand, not even field. With all your card draw, I can't imagine this to be helpful. It's -3 is swamp based removal, you can get better instant speed removal for less mana. It's ult is great but takes 4 turns without taking damage to get there.

If you do want a PW, then Ugin, the Ineffable might be worth considering because it's ramp for almost 20% of your deck, it's removal for artifact/enchantments and draw/token generator that provides you with more bodies (To attack with or block).

At the cost of being winmore, Alhammarret's Archive?

Please let us know how Hatred ends up playing out for you, I can't wait to hear the stories! Pumping up an opposing commander for commander damage is also a fun (potentially political) tool!

I love the deck! Jegantha looks pretty dang spicy with Sissay.

In terms of recommendations, Chandra, Legacy of Fire and Vraska, Betrayal's Sting both seem pretty dang good here. So does Obscuring Haze, the free fog that you can get for $2.

I have a similar deck, LET HER COOK! [[Lae'zel//Master Chef EDH]]. I'd love it if you could take a peek and give some feedback!

+1. So any updates for Brother's War, Dominaria Remastered and Phyrexia: All Will Be One? ONE seemed to have a huge number of gems for superfriends?? Vraska, Betrayal's Sting, Ichormoon Gauntlet, and Tekuthal, Inquiry Dominus all seem strong?

I ended up replacing Ugin, the Ineffable with Vraska, Betrayal's Sting right now. She has much more limited target removal but is less evasive (and my group tends to combo on creatures anyways). Too bad she couldn't turn things into non-sacrificial tokens though for removing commanders for greater length of time. There is so much artifact hate/board wipes in my group that I have switched some of the more costly mana ramp cards for some green ramp land fetch spells, so not missing the lower artifact cost benefit of Ugin. Also with all the new proliferate gems in All Will Be One, I feel that Karn's Bastion can probably be replaced?

I have been thinking about Vraska, Betrayal's Sting since its been spoiled and I am coming around to your position. It really does everything it needs to do, and it's Ult does just win the game with any source of proliferate. I am likely going to include it somewhere when I update the list, and maybe Sorin, Grim Nemesis is the right choice, but it's one my pet cards, so I will have to take that into account when I do.

Thank you for your answer, it really helps me understand the deck more, also because I am only playing for 4 Months at all (MTG). However, after consideration of your earlier commments, I have to say, that in my opinion Vraska, Betrayal's Sting could be a great addition to the deck (at least having it in the sidebord.) ANd it could be exchanged for Sorin, Grimmige Nemesis, although not creating blockers :). Just because of her first ability of course, but also her second ability, which is an Oko ability, only stronger, considering, that at the point of 5 or 6 Mana drops you should be able to spend Loyalty Counters pretty easily. Of course, that is only my view.

Thanks again and keep up the great work.
