Black Cards: Magic the Gathering Game : Ravenous Rats Black Card in Magic the Gathering


MIKE LOPEZ: Hi. I’m Mike Lopez with Expert
Village, and today we’re going to be discussing the black color from “Magic: The Gathering”.
And now we’re going to go over “Ravenous Rats”. “Ravenous Rats” is another creature card that
has been around for as long as I can remember was in the beta. It is a creature rat and
which means it gets benefits and can do really cool stuff with rats. They are all rat decks.
Once again, it is a common out of your basic set, 10th edition. “Ravenous Rats” cost you
1 and a black to play, which means its converted mana cost is 2. It is a 1/1 creature that
you paid 2 for, but this also means you’re going to get a really cool ability. The cool
ability here is that when Ravenous Rats comes into play, the target opponent discards a
card. This is what you call a turn-burn card for a [INDISCERNIBLE] or a mill deck because
this creature, although he is a 1 and a black only a 1/1, it causes your opponent to discard
a card and discarding a card from his hand. That’s a card that he cannot play. And once
again, if you play two of these back-to-back then he would have to discard two cards. There
are a lot of discard cards and discard creatures in the black set and this is what they call
“Domination”.

  1. Ravenous Rats was first released in Urza's Legacy. That mention of it being in the Beta is either misleading (you mean it was in MTGO beta) or it is completely wrong.

  2. uh-oh, more domination from the black set.
