Death Pits of Rath

Enchantment

Whenever a creature is dealt damage, destroy it. It can't be regenerated.

cool idea! what do you think of Death Pits of Rath ? also Entrapment Maneuver isn't modern legal.

Natalbee, I used to love Scrying Sheets back in its standard days; unfortunately, it has wasted many a mana in commander more often than not.

I don't have a Sunstone as of yet, but I'll definitely get one. As for this deck, however, I don't think I can make room for this artifact. I would need to also include a land recursion package to make it viable. Maybe it will find a home in a Green Pillow-Fort deck.

The reason I chose Oros, the Avenger over Tariel, Reckoner of Souls is threefold: I don't own a Tariel, I've been on a legendary dragon stint lately, and Oros's ability pairs fairly well Death Pits of Rath .

Since you're running so many ways to cheaply ping all of your opponent's creatures, the forthcoming Pestilent Spirit will be a dream come true. Death Pits of Rath is a backup way to do the same, and it also extends to damage dealt by your creatures and enchantments, though it can occasionally backfire as well.

Dreamweav3r on SUICIDE (The way of Gideon)

So you're basically playing prison, but without prison cards? I get the appeal of a combo where your opponents creatures die, but in Modern you're liable to die on turn 4 if you're too slow. This is neat but super slow. Cards really have to function well on their own in modern, especially if they cost 3 or more, which a lot of the cards here don't do very well. It really looks like this should be a Ghostly Prison + Sphere of Safety deck. The Lightmine + Pits + Gideon combo is 14 mana! And it accomplishes the same thing running an extra Wrath of God does for 4 mana, and Wrath is often considered too slow. I love the idea, and enchantment prison in general. I think you would benefit from cutting the Death Pits of Rath, Gideon Jura, and maybe a couple Lightmine Field for Ghostly Prison and Sphere of Safetys. (They would also justify the Banishing Lights and Oblivion Rings.) Would be sweet to see a WB prison. One other thing to keep in mind is there are decks that don't care about attacking with creatures at all in modern, so fun brews like this are relegated to basically Commander and playgroups casual.

I've always enjoyed Crypt Rats with Scythe of the Wretched. Even better with Death Pits of Rath

Detritivore delicious nonbasic land removal that's untouchable and the chances of targets being on the field same odds of finding a cow on a field near a farm

Mana Maze oh that's evil star especially since I'm using it in eldrazi decks with devoid cards wich is a loop hole around this.

Backlash another Reflect Damage catergory card

Hammer Mage a driver for the street sweeper of artifact cards in play

Fountain Watch just play a Asceticism with this and you just gave your whole board immunity to spells and abilities

Volcanic Wind hmmmm only six to do easily atleast 20+ damage to creatures and sweep...amazing

Once a upon a time someone just cast Wrath of God esc card then all the sudden I play Natural Affinity then after resolve I cast Eerie Interlude or Teferi's Protection and either resolve every one surrenders and possible a table flip happens because now it sweeps the lands and creatures excepts mine the end.

Centaur Omenreader how convenient I also have a Cryptolith Rite in play

Thermopod only red but that's Phyrexian Altar on a creature

Soulquake a board sweep and group hug at the same time sweet

Sages of the Anima and this isn't a Animar staple because?

Death Pits of Rath let's give everything deathtouch even instants/sorcery plus this is a budget No Mercy

Nature's Revolt no need for Living Plane this only needs a few coins to buy living plane needs Benjamin franklin bills

Balancing Act is that what I... IT IS!!!

Teferi's Protection your board then they have to sacrifice all the permanents

SteelSentry on Would "Phyrexia" or "Yawgmoth" Be ...

I always thought Yawgmoth's Will sounded like an awesome metal band. I also like Annihilator 6 as some sort of electronic punk band. Another one that springs to mind is Furnace of Rath/Death Pits of Rath.

Demo102 on Muldrotha, the Gravetide *Primer*

Duplicant could be a creature spot removal you're looking for.

Banewhip Punisher a bit more harder to abuse without prior synergy.

Big Game Hunter Depends how big your meta is.

Death Pits of Rath Since GY is like a second hand, it might have a place here?

Evil Twin Another target to copy hulk or something beefy in play.

That's all I could think of for creature spot removal that can target anything.
