reign-of-the-pit

Reign of the Pit is a new card featured in Conspiracy. Being a new card, it is also likely to be printed in Vintage Masters online, as well. For 4BB, Reign of the Pit is a sorcery that reads:

“Each player sacrifices a creature. Put an X/X black Demon creature token with flying onto the battlefield, where X is the total power of the creatures sacrificed this way.”

In a multi-player format, this is a pretty powerful card, especially when taking into consideration the total power of the creatures sacrificed. In Limited, especially in Conspiracy Limited, this card should be a bomb. Also, it’s very likely we’ll see this card crop up in Mono-Black decks, as well. This card combos very well with cards like Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos, as you also have to sacrifice a creature, meaning that with those cards on board, every one else sacrifices an additional creature.

It’s basically Syphon Flesh, which for 4B makes each other player sacrifice a creature and you get a 2/2 Zombie token for each creature that was sacrificed. This card can be a bit better, though, since the token you get is also a flyer, and can become considerably larger. While it’s certainly not going to be seen in any Legacy or Vintage decks, it’s a very strong card for Conspiracy Limited and can be a very useful card in Commander.
