Judging by the art... when they are the size of a bear.

Also strictly better than walking corpse as it benefits from both the corpse's zombie type and pro-rat cards (there are zero rat hate cards). One of the very rare times where a creature type makes a card strictly better.

Already outdoing Innistrad's zombie bear?

Strictly better than Walking Corpse. Might see play if we get Cemetery Reaper back in M14.

Somebody in R&D likes rats....... or maybe they're just thematic for a dirty city like Ravnica.

MAGIC is WAY over due for Rat-Hate, ever since Relentless Rats. No, not for any Development reasons, but because the Flavor is just so good. Relentless Rats is good Rat Design, and Rat-Hate is also good Rat-Flavor Design. :)

And Ravnica is JUST the plane to do it on, but they have made a good Rare Rat this season, but still no Rat-Hate. :/

Something that is like 'Vermin Exterminator'- A White Boros creature that Firebreathes to kill Rats and Insects? :) YEAH!

Or make it an artifact?

@xenohedron: Because a 2/2 for 2 in black is a pretty good card in limited (certainly not first-pick, but you're quite happy to run them), and a rat was more flavourful in Ravnica than a generic walking corpse. Plus, it works nicely with Pack Rat and Ogre Slumlord.

Grizzly Bears, you look... different?

@xenohedron: because rat tribal makes this even better. e.g. swarmyard and all the rat pumps in this block.

Grizzly bears are soft, this one rat can take a pack of them.

Yeah ok lets not rate this too low considering the walking corpseis over three. Seriously sick of the trolls rating cards far under their worth. a 2/2 for 2 is a highly playable creature.

Very slightly better than Walking Corpse, perhaps even strictly so seeing as how there are no anti-rat cards but plenty of pro-rat ones.
