Oddly enough this is the only instance of a card depicting a single non-anthropomorphic rat.

If you line these cards up in Chinese Zodiac order, starting with Snake, you get the following poem/story:

Thrice Xuande's ardent quest led to Nanyang,
Where Sleeping Dragon unveiled Han's partition:
‘First take Jingzhou, next the Riverlands;
On that rich region, base your own royal stand.'
Near death in Baidi, having reigned three years,
Bei sadly placed his son in Kongming's care.
By six offensives from the hills of Qi Kongming sought to change Han's destiny.
But the time of Han had run—could he Kongming not tell?—
That night his master star fell past the hills.
Jiang Wei alone still strove with might and main:
Nine times more he fought the north—in vain.
Zhong Hui and Deng Ai next led armies west:
And to the Cao, Han's hills and streams now passed.
Cao Pi, Cao Rui, Fang, Mao, and briefly, Huan—
The Sima took the empire in their turn.
Cao's abdication changed the face of all;
No mighty battles marked the Southland's fall.
Three kings no more—Chenliu, Guiming, Anle.
The fiefs and pos... (see all)

Only costs 3.50 to get one online. The same price as most decent rares. Damn you P3K.

I actually really want a few of these. I have a monoblack rat deck, and this is the best ability for a one-drop rat; swampwalk is way better than bog rats; gnat miser isn't bad but it would be more useful to have an extra advantage against black decks since I rely so heavily on fear and throat slitter.

Edit: well, now Innistrad's given us Typhoid Rats, so maybe not anymore. Still, it's Portal Three Kingdoms! I so badly want to be an ironic Magic hipster.

I would like to thank Zetan for having made my life a little better today. That's awesome.

Well... it's better than a vanilla 1/1 :D but not much more.

Woo hoo! Zodiac!

that shows how bad it is, rat's either need to come in swarms or be ninjas (or rogues or wizards or whatever you get the point)
