So, the format for this deck is Tribal, any card available in Legacy (and is not banned) is up for use in this deck.

// Lands
2 [TSP] Swarmyard
12 [LRW] Swamp (1)
4 [ON] Bloodstained Mire

// Creatures
22 [FD] Relentless Rats

// Spells
4 [DS] AEther Vial
4 [MR] Chrome Mox
3 [BOK] Umezawa's Jitte
4 [IN] Desperate Research
2 [WL] Mind Stone
3 [CS] Thrumming Stone

// Sideboard
SB: 4 [CHK] Nezumi Graverobber--Nighteyes the Desecrator
SB: 4 [10E] Pithing Needle
SB: 2 [DS] Darksteel Colossus
SB: 4 [VI] Crypt Rats
SB: 1 [CS] Thrumming Stone

I would really like some suggestions.
The basic idea is to start playing Relentless Rats, eventually putting a zillion into play with the Ripple Effect of Thrumming Stone.

Shouldn't you have like a coat of arm's?

"Black Lotus x4, Time Walk x4. and Mox Sapphire x4?, Maybe he is running the budget version"

Red Deck Wins

In theory, each of my creatures has a built in Coat of Arms, so, I don't think it is actually necessary.

My current list, for anyone interested in helping:

// Lands
2 [TSP] Swarmyard
6 [LRW] Swamp (1)
3 [ON] Bloodstained Mire
1 [TSP] Gemstone Caverns
3 [ON] Polluted Delta

// Creatures
22 [FD] Relentless Rats

// Spells
4 [DS] AEther Vial
4 [MR] Chrome Mox
4 [IN] Desperate Research
4 [CS] Thrumming Stone
3 [LRW] Thoughtseize
4 [IA] Dark Ritual
Coat of arms in this deck would just be winmore card and not needed.
I might run Marrow Gnawer.. just because he's the man, but he's kinda useless against black.. he does add tokens.
I am quite interested in this tribal, but me and my friends started out not long ago and planned to play in Standard. Just wondering if Rat deck can be made in Standard game? Thank you very much~
Why do you run Bloodstained Mire or just a basic Swamp? It just takes a life away and makes a swamp you cant use yet when you could've just played a swamp.
Or that's what I see it as with no mountains...
Try some Swarm Of Rats in your sideboard
Here's a Standard Thrumming Rats decklist...

4 Graven Cairns
4 Mountain
16 Swamp

20 Relentless Rats

4 Thrumming Stone
4 Diabolic Tutor
4 Coldsteel Heart
4 Ashling's Prerogative

Don't think I missed anything did I?

I have a bunch of old rats that i use in my rat deck.....although i did just add marrow-wnawer (however you spell it).... i just just dont like the idea of having all the same rats.....boring to me......but to each his own.....esspecially if it is beating your opponent.....just my thought .....doesnt really matter.....


Have a good one!!!!

1 Relentless rat in the grave,  and Extripate just destroys this deck.  I'm not saying it's bad, but I'd probably add some other rats to the mix to be safe at least run ravenous rats for some disruption.
