Lifelink, Black Ward, GG

Or for something more recent, Magebane Armor

the pestilence effect on a creature, opens up the black pump game, gives you a few more ways to play the style... of course the drawback is a bit different, since crypt will take damage as well.. so protect him, or regenerate, but even more to black's nature is the spells available to bring a creature back from the graveyd.... this is a super solid spell.... more? how about trying to mix into the flow of your game ways for spells to be recycled while not significantly altering your theme/deck... how about persist?... especially if one would play with seal of strength (getting rats above their 1/1) ... anyway, you get the point, as a creature it's usually easier to find ways to play it many times during a game... so the more times your opponent deals with crypt rats perhaps another aspect of your game gets a bit more breathing room to trigger.

a great looking card as well.... generally a very fair casting cost.. it just kind of had to fall within 3 or 4 mana... does anyone think it... (see all)

Kind of like the poor man's Bane of the Living. With Gorgon's Flail or some other such piece of equipment, the rats wreck house. I love these little guys! :D

an uncommon, and effective board wipe that hits players, too? visions really did have a few hidden gems, didn't it?

One of the best creatures ever designed. I've never not used in a mono-black deck.

Best rats ever printed, but Ink-eyes is also pretty strong for a rat-themed deck. Caution, playing it with Absolute Grace is not as good as it looks at first sight.

Combos real good with Lifelink.
Also, since the creature's ability does not require it to be tapped, if you have the mana it can be activated the same turn that it is summoned. Thus it is difficult for the opponent to prevent the rats from doing their job at least once.

My first experience global removal. <3
My crypt rats liked eating Seal of Strength and destroying all blockers with toughness 3 or less.
