Bottomless Pit Discussion

Feptoid on Discard Me Daddy

I aim for playing in a mostly casual environment, Im hardly what one would call a competitive person. I have been looking into adding Bottomless Pit and Necrogen Mists for a while, but I just havnt gotten around to it as I've been building up another deck of mine lately. I will be adding a Geth's Grimoire when I get around to obtaining it from my friend in the near future.

Thanks for the suggestions man!

Casual EDH? Or cEDH? I run a cEDH Nath Stax deck that very much differs from your deck. You seem to be going the route of just Elf beats and smacking people in the face. Nath can do so many cool things for cheap Bottomless Pit Necrogen Mists are just some of them. Heres a link to my deck.

How about the new cards from HoD: Torment of Hailfire or Torment of Scarabs

Isolation Cell to punish playing creatures

and Asylum Visitor and a discard package Bottomless Pit, Creeping Dread, Cunning Lethemancer keeps you fueled while others fizzle. you can even add Paupers' Cage, The Rack for extra punishment.

Lastly Noetic Scales is a pain for players to keep creatures on the board

Why not try adding in Ob Nixilis Reignited he does every thing your deck wants to do. A card like Lethal Vapors is Portcullis. A card that works good with your CMDR and contamination Abhorrent Overlord might want to give that a try. Thief of Blood is another card that's good with Dark Depths. Um another card that works with dark depths is AEther Snap is a planswalker boardwipe too. Maybe consider Glacial Chasm this seems like a great way to stay alive while you find your combo win con. Since you are not using etb Torpor Orb. Perhaps Bottomless Pit for addional discard. I like Myojin of Night's Reach that's a mean card you like mean things.

First off, you need to find a wincon for your deck or some general idea of a path you want to follow into. This is the whole bases to winning more! Looking over your deck your theme seems to run around discarding and -/- counters but in all honesty your deck is pretty much everywhere, you should look into just choosing a single or secondary main component.

Run more cards like Bottomless Pit, Necrogen Mists, Oppression and Painful Quandary if you want to run more of the discarding option, yes of course some of these affect also include you but in the long run it stops your opponents from having more answers to your spells.

I would drop all these cards either they're not within your theme, there are better versions or they're not needed.
Burnished Hart & Solemn Simulacrum
Gonti, Lord of Luxury; very situational, he's a great card for possibly taking out their wincons but he's honestly only great as a commander.
Kozilek, Butcher of Truth; I love Kozi but he honestly isn't necessary in this deck and mostly just a fill in card.
Pack Rat; seems useless since you're not a rats based deck.
Zulaport Cutthroat; unless you plan on doing the Gravecrawler combo he's not useful.
Hero's Blade; extremely limited because you don't run many legendary creatures and even then if you use it for Lilli she'll flip later on.
Lashwrithe; equipment isn't recommended because it's not your main theme.
Panharmonicon; even though this is pretty much a stable in EDH you don't run enough ETB effects that'll make this more useful.
Faith of the Devoted; basically Zula Cutthroat but worse.
Torment of Scarabs; a really weak card that isn't that useful in EDH since we all start off at 40 life.
Triumph of Cruelty; in most cases you wont be the player with the largest creature on the field.
Words of Waste; because you'll be discarding a lot your hand will be very small this doesn't help at all with that.
Both Liliana planeswalkers; you'll almost everytime have your Lilli flipped so you wouldn't be able to use them.

Granted all of these are suggestions, do whatever you'd like with my advice! :D

I believe this is meant to be a standard deck.

Though I loved Megrim and Bottomless Pit back in the good old days, i recently discovered Liliana's Caress. Made me sad about how megrim is that old.

Anyway, yeah. If not standard, then go for it.

Rakdos decks are the best kind of decks to abuse hellbent and madness cards, not just in the "power at any cost" color themes, but the flavor and playstyle as well :p


Anthem of Rakdos

Gibbering Descent

Infernal Tutor

Asylum Visitor

Murderous Compulsion

Necrogen Mists

Bottomless Pit

It does seem hurtful at first, but trust me opponents will feel it a lot more especially if you just cast Oppression and pass turn to a storm, control, combo or tempo player or any blue player itll cripple them :p

To think like a madman, you must PLAY like a madman :p

Oops competitive nekusar bad link, but yea, one of the best cards in nekusar i proxy and NEED is Chains of Mephistopheles, if you ever win the lottery that card locks your opponents down and taigam ignores it!

As far as discard/draw hate, heres some options


Bottomless Pit

Painful Quandary

Breathstealer's Crypt

Notion Thief

Lim-Dul's Vault

Consecrated Sphinx

Whispering Madness
