Pit Fight Discussion

Polaris on Koma, Cosmos Serpernt Rules & …

  1. There are quite a few uses for this ability. Planeswalkers are definitely one, but there are also tons of cards with situational abilities or ones that want to be responding to other things. For example, sacrifice decks will run things like Viscera Seer to be able to sacrifice creatures in response to removal to get the correct death triggers. You can also use it on, say, Mother of Runes to get a removal spell through; even if they activate her on the creature you're trying to remove you can just cast your Pit Fight or whatever in response.

Polaris on Targeting creature

There's no ambiguity with targeting either. If something says target, it targets; if it does not say target, it does not (with a few exceptions for keywords that target in their rules, like equip meaning "attach this Equipment to target creature you control").

Pit Fight clearly names two creatures, one of which the caster has to control, as targets. Asceticism specifies that your creatures cannot be targets for things your opponents control, so they can only cast Pit Fight targeting their own creatures.

Wbg1415 on Targeting creature

I have on the board Asceticism and a Llanowar Tribe . My opponent has Phyrexian Obliterator on board and during his turn he casts Pit Fight onto phyrexian Obliterator and wants to force it to fight my Llanowar Tribe. Since I have Asceticism on board and it states "Creatures I control can't be the targets of spells or abilities your opponents control." Pit fight states target creature you control fights another target creature. But my creatures can't be target due to Asceticism, correct or not?

     Omniscience_is_life: Thanks so much for the Upvote and great suggestions! Your comment (particularly the linked "Annoying pieces of shit" bit) gave me a good chuckle haha! =)

     Have to agree with your opinion on Bretagard Stronghold ! I've played it once and it was particularly underwhelming. I'll likely replace with another basic or Temple of Abandon .

     I had been considering Farseek & Curse of Opulence , though I was planning to cut Road of Return and keep Skyshroud Claim instead. Being that Marisi costs four though, SS Claim & Exp Veg do conflict with a tempo draw and is probably a better plan.

     I really love Shamanic Revelation , but you're probably right here, too. I have one Sylvan Library , but I'm not super keen to pull it from the deck it's in or to go and buy another haha! Probably Return of the Wildspeaker is the right direction. :)

     Planning to cut Prey Upon for Pit Fight . At least then I can target my own creatures with Brash Taunter & Stuffy Doll .

     Again - great suggestions! Thank you!

Great suggestion carpecanum!

I think I could add Dromoka's Command as it is the most flexible option I can think of. Other possible options are Pit Fight, Savage Punch or Temur Charm , my concern is that the deck is not creature heavy.

Hey MPriest....its Pasic. Neat deck but i dont see the use of Thud only Deadbridge Goliath has a graveyard effect .... so instead consider Go for Blood, Hunt the Weak, Pit Fight or Savage Punch. No graveyard if thats what you want, but same damage and keep your creature.
