• Hey people! I was at the Ravnica draft last night, scored an Armada worm which I traded for oodles of cards. Among the cards were three pack rats. Can you guess what kind of deck I am going to try? Rats. Soooo…. Ideas? Pack rats is obviously in the deck, Ravenous Rats and Drainpipe Vermin (looking for three DP Vermin's) but what other legal rats are there out there?

    Any ideas as to how I can make a rat deck are welcome and appreciated greatly. I'll be out of town for a couple of days so my responses won't be for a while, but any help appreciated. Thanks all!

    P.S. Not entirely sure if I should go mono-colour or tricolour. If I went tricolour, what do you think would work well? I was thinking Selesnya cards could work well by populating the rat tokens.

    P.P.S. Do Pack Rat tokens made by using its ability increase in strength (power/toughness) like the original rat?

    Thanks a bundle folks.

  • gatherer.wizards.com is a tool you can use to find whatever card you are looking for that can match any format.

    And yes, the rat tokens that copy Pack Rat also copy its ability to copy further and its power/toughness modifier.

    Although its a zombie rats deck, it can give you a good idea of the kind of removal to use + some other cards for the other slots.

  • Thanks a bunch guys! I'll get working on the deck and tell you guys how it works out.
