Breeding Pit Discussion
1 month ago
Building and testing my Omnath, Locus of Rage deck I realized that 2 mana for fetching a basic land is good, 4 mana for fetching two lands is great, but 6 mana for fetching three lands is a terrible deal. If you are casting such an expensive sorcery you should get a way bigger effect on its own before adding any synergies. Boundless Realms is a great card but Nissa's Renewal and Verdant Confluence are lacking heavily.
Getting three cards form graveyard from Verdant Confluence instead is okayish, but for that end is way better Seasons Past it usually gets me five to seven cards form the graveyard.
Traverse the Outlands is just a lower cost sorcery that in this deck will usually fetch you at least five lands.
I'd also add some sacrifice outlets such as Goblin Bombardment, Ashnod's Altar, Altar of Dementia, Breeding Pit, High Market, maybe even Skullmulcher, three of them should be good enough. Being able to kill your elementals on command in order to trigger Omanth is crucial.
You may have troubles with flyers so I'd swap Molten Disaster for Chain Reaction, in multiplayer it will be like a second Blasphemous Act.
Ulvenwald Hydra will also be a nice response to flyers. It isn't an elemental but it still synergizes greatly with the deck mechanics. I also like Cloudthresher and Tornado Elemental to fight those pesky flyers.
Spitebellows is a good removal for an Omnath deck, when yopu evoke it you can get a lot of triggers for just three mana.

The deck was under 150$ when I made it, but that's since changed. I'm making some cuts to try to get under that limit again.
As for your suggestions:
Bitterblossom is far too expensive($) for the deck.
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is also very expensive($), but may be powerful enough to make the cut at some point. I'll keep it in mind; thanks!
Breeding Pit requires too much of a mana investment on turns where I want to be ramping.
I already have Sengir Autocrat in the deck. 99% of the time he is one of the first things I fetch with Razaketh.
Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder is an option I had looked at when I first started brewing, but had dismissed as too expensive(). However, I now realize that if he is down and I cast Razaketh, the Foulblooded, I get 8 tokens, which is simply game over for my opponents. I'll put him in.
Thanks for your suggestions!

Sorry for all the posts, I just really like the idea of a deck like this deck.

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.

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.
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 :)
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?
