Death Pits of Rath


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

If you genuinely want this deck to be as hated as possible, non expense spared, there are some mono-black prison cards that could find a home here. Contamination locks down mana, Chains of Mephistopheles forces extra draws into discard/mill, The Abyss and Death Pits of Rath kill creatures on contact, and Nether Void is an all-encompassing Mana Leak. On the artifact side of things, Trinisphere and Winter Orb eat so much mana it's not funny, except for you because you're paying life and not mana.

(I don't own any of the super-high value cards, but I've always wanted to.)

Just came across these two cards,Death Pits of Rath and Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant. They seem to be synergistic with your general.

Yo if you can't get Zagras out or if he blows up, having stuff like Death Pits of Rath or Retreat to Hagra could make for good backup plans.

Viridian Longbow, Death Pits of Rath, Gorgon's Head, and Gorgon Flail will add a good bit of shenanigans with a side of salt =D

Love the Death Pits of Rath / Goblin Sharpshooter combo in here, what a classic! Still, the nazi-reference is way beyond being acceptable.

That's either just cheap clickbait or - even worse - a morbid trivialisation of history, especially with right-wing conservatives gaing more and more momentum all around the globe. Please just stop that, there is nothing to gain here.

Wesley as a farm boy: Diligent Farmhand. Not Modern legal, but...

Castle Ardenvale or any of the other Eldraine castles.

Unruly Mob is the mob that had to be dispersed before storming the castle.

Of course, they did have to Storm the Citadel.

Consign to the Pit (of despair). Or you could use Death Pits of Rath.

There is Quicksand in the Cinder Marsh (fire swamp). Cinder Marsh is not modern legal, so you could use Cinder Barrens or Smoldering Marsh.

The whole thing is told by a storyteller, so you could include Lagonna-Band Storyteller, which synergizes with Happily Ever After. Also, Into the Story or Tome Scour?

Perhaps True Love's Kiss?

They did fetch horses at the end: Crested Sunmare, Diamond Mare, Wandermare or Shield Mare.

I love creatures that can ping for damage, and the only thing that makes them better is giving them deathtouch so that damage is lethal.

Archetype of Finality is a bit costly, but it does remove deathtouch from your opponents' creatures which can be handy.

Ankle Shanker isn't as great, but at least it shouldn't die since you can clear all the blockers.

Death Pits of Rath can definitely backfire, but it can also cause a lot of havoc depending on the board state and what you're facing.

Shriveling Rot is just amazing. You either get deathtouch, have it and now make your opponents lose life, or entwine for both.

Vault of the Archangel is nice since it's a land and harder to get rid of. IT also gives you lifelink which can be handy (though, you won't be gaining that much life).

Vraska, Scheming Gorgon is a good way to get ganged up on. If you ever use the ult, enjoy the win, but it's also a sure fire way to make everyone target you.
