Nice addition, the list is growing
Nezumi Graverobber has always been a favorite rat of mine, play it so you can have graveyard removal (it can come in handy, Deathrite Shaman sucks) and early enough in game it can flip after 1 activation it can flip into a nice beater.

Rotting Rats is nice cause it can make an opponent discard two cards from it and late game unearth is always fun.

Crypt Rats isn't modern legal, but can be a great 1-2 of in here that can act as a sweeper as well as a way to burn an opponent's life. If you're hitting early enough you'll have more life than them so it shouldn't be a problem if you lose life. Also, if you're really worried about running Crypt Rats cause you lose life, keep in mind you're running , there's plenty of ways to gain life in decks.

If you like running the rat ninjas then consider Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, she's a strong rat with a great ability and in you're running a bunch of little guys then your opponent wont think anything about taking 1-2 damage from a small rat allowing you to make nice use of the ninjutsu ability. Also, she reborns an opponent's creature, so make sure to run a bunch of removal so you can fill their graveyard/clear a path for her to keep swinging.

Wait, there is that rat card that gives +1/+1 to every other rat.  I think it says you can have as many as you want....Why not have 20 swamps and 40 of those rats i mentioned? Tongue Out

Because Relentless Rats doesn't give +1/+1.  Besides, Ripple Rats is boring...

And fragile too, it only takes one opponent in a playgroup to start playing with cards like Surgical Extraction, Lobotomy and/or Memoricide for a Relentless Rats deck to fail miserably... trust me I was the guy running 2 Lobotomy, we all laughed at the fact he then had 10 or so cards in his deck afterwards.

Keep in mind that you have to discard a card to use the ability on Pack Rat. But with that in mind you could put a few Veilborn Ghoul in your deck for it to use over and over again. Just one swamp and you could discard him again.
