Relentless Rats

Relentless Rats

36 Relentless Rats
24 Swamp

I am not going to waste my breath explaining how to play that.

Relentless Rats v2.0

20 Swamp
28 Relentless Rats
4 Chrome Mox
4 Night's Whisper
4 Last Gasp

SB: 4 Hideous Laughter
SB: 4 Night of Souls' Betrayal
SB: 4 Coat of Arms
SB: 3 Marrow-Gnawer

If you can Chrome Mox into a Night's Whisper on turn 1 off a Relentless Rats, do it. Once you hit three mana, all you care about it playing Rats. If you hit six mana, all you care about is playing 2 Rats. Phyrexian Arena could replace Night's Whisper, but why compete with playing another Rat. I have actually beaten an Extended-worthy Elf deck by accelerating into turn 3 Night of Souls' Betrayal in game 2. Game 3 he switched decks (jerk). Truth be told, I have never boarded in Coat of Arms or Marrow-Gnawer, so feel free to replace them in the board. Cruel Edict has a place.
