Breeding Pit Discussion

Need more things to sacrifice in my opinion. Add Bitterblossom, or for a more budget option, Spawning Pit, Breeding Pit, Ophiomancer, Infernal Genesis, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, or Nuisance Engine. Archdemon of Unx could be OK.

Also, Gonti's Machinations is pretty bad, and Final Reward should just be a Hero's Downfall or some other better removal spell.

I remember when I was in grade school I got Lord of the Pit in a pack for Christmas and I was so pumped! I didn't have Breeding Pit but I traded a kid at school for it and I had a pretty sweet black deck! Lol! You could add Breeding Pit to get free sacrifice creatures but then it wouldn't be modern.

Zeit fr etwas konstruktive Kritik.. in der Beschreibung steht ja das es sich um eine Sammlung handelt...

also du willst scheinbar marchesa auf kontrolle spielen. Sehr gute Wahl :) fangen wir an..

Karten die ich cutten wrde und dahinter potenzieller ersatz.

Barrage of Expendables ersatz Goblin Bombardment

Breeding Pit cool aber zu schwach. du willst ja eigentlich deine eigenen Kreaturen (oder die von gegnern) saccen.... Tokens verschwinden einfach wieder und dein Comander profitiert nicht davon.

genau wie du noch meiner Meinung nach zu viele Zauber spielst, die dir kontrolle ber einzelne Kreaturen geben. dafr sind die Entchantments einfach zu 1. Mana intensiv und 2. Mana intensiv :P mal eben berflogen und bin auf 6 gekommen. Ist natrlich stark und cool.. aber Domineering Will (spielst du auch) ist viel strker.. du kannst die Kreaturen meistens ja eh saccen und dann gehren sie dir.. auerdem ist der instant :P Reins of Power ist etwas gefhrlicher weil du dann deinen Comander auch nicht mehr kontrolierst :)

Carnage Altarcool aber zu mana intensiv. ich wrde auf die gute alte Skullclamp zurckgreifen. du hast gengend sacc outlets um die zuverlssig zu triggern... und kostet wesentlich weniger mana :)

Life Chisel cool aber zu unflexiebel.

Allgemein willst ja 1 und 1 counter auf deinen kreaturen und dein live unten halten.. sag hallo zu deiner betsten karten :P Unspeakable Symbol

sehr angenehmn das du nicht noch versuchst die komplette blaue counter Schiene mit unter zu bringen.. :)

Du wirst weder mit den Lndern noch mit deinen Mana beschleunigern auskommen (passiert mir auch immer)

habe bislang auch keine zuverlssige draw engin gefunden.. sieht aber so aus als knnte das Spa machen wenns fertig ist. Schreib mir was du von der Kritik hlst :)

Thanks LordMithos and Wizno! I do like the Fleshbag Marauder. In playresting, I did get a bit flooded with mana, so i like that idea. Probably cut some of the more expensive lands i dont own yet so i can finish this quick. As for Lili, i just had that foil laying around and wanted to use it, as i can easily trigger her, but she is pretty low impact. I like Curse of Shallow Graves for token decks, because a Rhys the Redeemed list is running around my playgroup. The Mutilate I like because it's a budget Damnation and a lot of the time, Yahenni survives the -X/-X if a couple guys died, but I see your point.

I do love me some Smokestack, unfortunately, Bitterblossom is a bit out of my price range right now, all my expensive card (e.g ugin and Lili and Vamp Tutor) I already own, but I still will add Smokestack. Are there any other Bitterblossom-type cards you know of? I know Nuisance Engine, Breeding Pit, and Myr Turbine, I could also add some more token producers like Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder. Ideas?

I've figured out what you're missing btw. You need a planeswalker, and I'm not counting baby Lili cause she doesn't start that way. Now I don't rightly know which one unless you went with Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath since he's the only one that straight up makes tokens, but you could make an argument for lots of the others too. If you did put him or any walker in I'd take out Breeding Pit personally.

In Commander, there are in fact more than two black thrulls. There's Armor Thrull (one of my favorites), Necrite & Mindstab Thrull, Blood Pet, Basal Thrull & Blood Vassal, Exhumer Thrull, Thrull Champion, Thrull Parasite, Thrull Surgeon & Thrull Wizard... and that's pretty much all the good ones in mono-black.

The best thrulls are WB, such as Mourning Thrull, Kingpin's Pet and Treasury Thrull (which kinda sucks, anyway), but then you wouldn't be able to keep Endrek as your Commander if you went .

Also, don't forget to check out cards like Breeding Pit, Ebon Praetor, Orzhov Keyrune, Sarpadian Empires, Vol. VII, Soul Exchange (awesome card), Thrull Retainer & Tourach's Gate.

I love thrulls, btw. =)

ManaTitheGuy on Optimal sac outlet

1 year ago

When I first started playing MTG back in the Stronghold days (yes that long ago) I was enamored by Crovax the Cursed so much that I tried relentlessly to build a deck around him. Breeding Pit was one of the few token generators at that time, and I was by far a good deck builder. Cards like Fallen Angel came along and improved the deck but it never achieved competitive status by today's standards.

With that being said, now there are some amazing sac outlets available. Modern Aristocrats come to mind;

Cartel Aristocrat

Falkenrath Aristocrat

And one of my all time favorites: Butcher of the Horde

So after seeing LSV's "aristocrat-less aristocrats deck" in the SOI Pro Tour I really wanted to revisit my love for the sac mechanic.

I think with the vast array of cards accessible in modern this could be viable once again.

Here is what I have so far. It is by no means complete, I am still in the r & d phase.Eyez gawna sak dis and dis and dis, oh you ded!

I am interested to see what other people think about the "best" sac outlet, and what are some good interactions.

Bloodghast for example. Probably one of the best sac interactions IMO.

Let me know what your thoughts are on this.
