Any love for Bankrupt In Blood in Modern?

I'm going to try running Bankrupt in Blood in my modern token machine... and I noticed that pretty much nobody outside of EDH is using it. Seems legit in modern tokens. Anyone else already tried it and dismissed it? Why no love? Cheers!
unless you're producing a mass amount of tokens, i dont think the cost of 2 creatures is as negligible as it might first appear. but i think the biggest issue may just be finding space in the deck. you need space for token generators, ways to abuse those tokens, and then removal. which of those 3 categories do you sacrifice just for a bit of draw power?

Unless you have death triggers, I don't see how it's better than the draw 2 cards options.

Not to mention, that for , you get Life's Legacy , which tends to net you a LOT more cards.
Due to current modern legal token generators - that at best rate cost 2 and produce 2 tokens - you will sacrifice 3 mana worth of tokens for the card draw effect. So its basically costs you 5, plus some board presence - and due to the large number of sacrifices required you can't really rely on recursive creatures, with undying, persist, or miscellaneous triggers like the one on Bloodghast
To give you a counterexample, if you sacrifice Kitchen Finks to Life's Legacy that nets you 2 life, draws 3 cards, and still leaves you with a blocker - or Strangleroot Geist which gives you a bigger blocker/attacker, and 2 cards..

The first problem is the sorcery speed of it: it doesn't let you sacrifice doomed creatures. For example, Altar's Reap lets you block with a critter, then sac it to pay the cost or, sac a creature that's about to eat a Lightning Bolt .

Altar's Reap does look a little tastier... my build does produce massive amounts of tokens (hit for 60 last night, for example, in a grindy midrange golgari matchup) but I like the instant speed. Plus, I already run Scarscale Ritual , so maybe I can do without the 3rd card that Bankrupt provides.
