Rats

How do you get enough rat cards to play it???

For reference, I played a guy that literally had like 20-30 rat cards, it was wild.
Rat colony was rotated out, so you better not get any, it would be stupidly expensive.  :P
EDIT: To think about it, this one is mostly rare cards. How do you get enough rat cards indeed.

There are several cards in the new set that'll spawn rat tokens - you can see them in his screenshots: Mad Ratter and Piper of the Swarm. Chittering Witch also, although that's 4 mana for a 2/2 that (in a normal game) will only spawn a single rat.

Damn, why it has taken me so long to figure out.  Five-colored deck:
Gates, 3 of each.
Guildmages, 2 of each.
Circuitous route.
Niv-mizzet reborn.
Guildpact stuff.
Gate stuff.
Guildmasters per taste and ability (of mythics i have only Mizzet, Kaya and Aurelia. And i don't have any Domri. Damn. Well, i'm probably getting architect of law after magic mirror.).

Sheer amount of gates on the table is bonklers, as is stuff that scales with them. You think you are beefier than me, gruul? I'm gatebreaker ram!

Stormfist Crusader is a nifty card in rakdos colors (and the centerpiece of a rakdos knights deck I've been playing around with). Its beginning of upkeep effect is great for triggering spectacle and since it's a knight it can take advantage of Fervent Champion's effect and it has menace which is always nice.

I originally wanted to pair it with Bloodhaze Wolverine to set off BHW's effect, but in practice the two cards rarely stayed on the board together and while BHW's effect is nice, it wasn't enough to justify trying to build around.

After discovering it upon playing an opponent using it, I decided to slip two copies of Blacklance Paragon into my rakdos knights deck since it can fill a similar role as Dire Fleet Poisoner did in my rakdos pirate deck (i.e. flash it in to ambush an opponent's attacker/blocker or just flash it in at end of opponent's turn). Plus I really like the artwork.

1. There are many stupidly specialized cards, but this one probably takes the cake. Crazily overpriced removal for killing... Buffed resolute rider? Gideon? Stuff under unbreakacable formation? WTF?

2. Moldervine reclamation + Deathless knight = giggle.
Moldervine reclamation + Deathless knight + Doom foretold = cackle.

They added a few cards from modern for the historic format.

Azorius vs Azorius rigged for more heal and card drawing - veritable slog.

Its not a slog until you're at 150 health and your opponent is at 200 but you wipe the board sans your most powerful unit and he rage quits.
