The pre-Oracle wording is fun -- "You may still attack with Lord of the Pit even if you failed to sacrifice a creature."

It's pretty clear who's the boss, here. Lord of the Pit does not fail you. You fail Lord of the Pit.

Ok um, am I missing something?
How the hell do you fail to sacrifice a creature, and yet still have one (namely this) in play?

This is the card that made me want to start playing this game. First, I just love saying "Lord of the Pit." Then there's the artwork... nothing like it, man. As far as the suicide aspect, dying to this thing because I wasn't able to control it was so flavorful that it was almost ok. I mean, I started playing D&D/AD&D back in 81, so I got that if you summoned a demon and screwed around with it, you'd die. No cacodemon spells here. And when I didn't die, but used my summoned fiend to crush my opponent? All was right with the world.

This card isn't about what is better and what is worse. This card is about, well, this card. And it has to be a 5/5, because this is Magic, and it's a Lord of the Pit.

Despite all the more powerful creatures printed since then, they still haven't printed anything directly superior to this guy. Other demons may be larger, smaller, have different sacrifice effects, or be easier to control but then tap down when you fail them, but Lord of the Pit is still rather unique for his size, casting cost, and abilities (for good or for bad.)

Hard to use effectively, but not unplayable if you can get him to work since a 7/7 flying black trampler is not to be laughed at.
