I bunk with this guy who loves to use Avacyn and cackles at fools who dare oppose him when he has enough mana to summon her.

Would be simply delicious to make him get a taste of his own medicine for once.

7/7 that costs 4BlackBlackBlack, flies, mills your opponent's deck, steals one of his creatures, and has no drawbacks? This can't be! I thought this creature was black?!

In any case, and as others have already pointed out, this guy needs trample. I can't help but feel Black got the short end of the stick in Gatecrash (cf White)...

A really neat card. I especially like the colour-scheme in the artwork. Really awesome piece.

The Function

Sure it'd be great with Trample though at the same time I'm glad he doesn't have it. I mean, how many big guys with Trample do we really need? It'd get pretty boring for me if they all had it and cards like this that don't have one thing or another just provide the opportunity for people to explore different options for giving creatures what they feel is necessary depending on what deck they are using.

I also don't feel like his milling ability is at all useless by the time you even get him onto the battlefield. Really all depends on who you're going up against. There are so many variables in any given game and I've definitely had my fair share of rounds where his ability is totally welcome by the time I get him out. Or what about the situation where you're having a 3+ person game. By the time you get him out, who says anyone is even near 0 life? The fact that you can swing one... (see all)

I like this card, In our magic group most people play standard but then there are those like me who decide to play other formats.
In this group we have some Eldrazi decks that pop out legendary eldrazi turn 3-4, I run a reanimator, but with this I also have an eldrazi deck and I can pop out legendary eldrazi turn 1-2.
Now if only it said Cast.

I can't believe some of these spoiled commenters.

Really? Give him trample?
Not only would Wizards be completely obsoleting the use of Lord of the Pit
But a 7/7 flyer for seven cmc that steals your opponents' creatures and is black with absolutely no drawback other than you -having- to choose a creature is already incredible in black!
Giving him trample would not only raise his price but make a lot of other cards feel completely worthless. It would be like giving Baneslayer Angel vigilance.

When you special order the Divine Vs Demonic print of Lord of the Pit and the art is THAT cool, you need to find a way of playing him. You just do.

I'm pretty sure the draw back here is that you have to use combat damage to a player to trigger his ability. Oh well, I like this guy a lot and he's basically a worse version of Ashiok except he's more dangerous

So. sounds like a badass card that i would love to add to my collection... too bad i dont play black.
Even though the drop is seven, this sounds like one of those gamechanger cards.
