    Welcome !
    I played against someone having Death Pit of offering /living death combo.

    You need a lot of mana though.
    What about hand distruption / good creatures :

    4 hippy
    4 black knight
    4 knight of Stromgald
    1 Evincar
    1 Vorlath
    1 Fallen angel
    1 Skyshroud vampire
    2 Sorceress queen

    3 duress
    2 unmask
    4 hymn to tourach
    2 death pit of offering
    2 living death
    4 vampiric tutor (demonic if you have)
    2 Contamination (for early control)

    1 Mox Jet

    2 lake of the dead
    2 Volrath's Tower (sack a creat for BB)
    2 Vorlath stronghold (1B return creat from graveyard to top of library)
    4 peat bog
    12 swamp

    I have death pit offerings in my living death deck tho it does have a few urzas cards i will list it anyway so you can maybe modify it

    these are the urzas cards in the deck:
    Deranged hermit X4
    Avalanche riders X4
    Sneak Attack X3
    Phrexian Ghoul X2
    -----------------
    Buried Alive X3
    Fallen Angel X3
    Living Death X4
    Death pit offering X2
    Skyshroud Vampire X3
    Dark Ritual X4
    Vampire Hounds X2
    Survival of The fittest X3
    goblin bombardment X2
    Badlands X4
    Tiaga X4
    Bayou X4
    Swamp X7
    forest X2

    and thats the deck! it works really well with the living death death pit offerings and deranged hermits...
    have fun!

    Wouldn't Culling the Weak be good for a Death Pit Offering deck? First turn Bog Rats, second turn, Culling the Weak followed by Carnophage or Sacromancy? That's not card economy, but if you can pull it off... Also, if you can first turn, Blood Pet, you can play Dark Ritual second turn and still potentially have 2 Swamps open for a creature (4/4 Black Knight anybody?).

    MOX JET?! Are you kidding me? Who plays with one of those? Now, Charcoal Diamond, that's a card! :rolleyes:

    I'm just razzing you, Mundungu. But not many of us can even imagine having one of the original Mox. However, Mox Diamond is a viable option.

    Oh come on guys, I just wanted to show off ....
    I actually have 2 moxes (pearl and jet) and I am having my eyes on a third one. The two mentioned above I got from E-bay auctions for real cheap compared to the real value (60 box) before E-bay auctions were so popular and by a guy who had dropped it in the wrong category.

    I'm trying to trade a ruby for a batch of foils from one the local gamers.

    If you count, 60 $ that is a original Mox for less than the price of 6 starters !!!.

    I too have a Mox Jet, that I won in a tournament. Yes! I admit it! I have played in tournaments! Punish me as you will :)

    Anyway, the Offering can work pretty well with Saproling Burst or Cluster, or Spontaneous Generation. Anything that gives you large numbers of creatures at once can be played right after the offering to great effect.

    Did you happen to catch this on The Dojo. Its
    strictly a casual deck. They meant it as a joke
    but it looks fun to play.

    You can take the Urza's Block cards out and
    make it MM Block if you like the idea.

    en Masse`acre (silly name I made up)

    4 Duress
    4 Massacre...land kill (must have DpO or Armor out.)
    4 Dark Ritual......they used Skyshroud Claim
    4 Clear the Land
    4 Vampiric Tutors
    4 Natural Affinity
    4 Death Pit Offering.....4/4 land vs 2/2 land
    3 Thrashing Wumpus
    1 Eradicate...........take all of their land in their library.
    1 Spidersilk Armor...make own land 2/3

    11 Swamp
    8 Forest
    4 City of Brass
    4 Treetop Village


    Just a thought

    My initial reaction to Dpo was to combo with living death. But I think I can do better, how's this sound?

    3 Death pit offering
    4 Grave Pact (I think this is it, the black enchantment that forces opponent to sac a creature whenever you lose one)
    4 Abyssal Gatekeeper
    4 Culling of the weak
    4 Blood Pet
    3 Mind Swords
    3 Peacekeeper
    4 Blinding Angel
    4 Wrath Of God
    4 Chimeric Sphere
    2 Chimeric Staff
    2 Wave Of Reckoning

    3 Forbidding Tower
    2 Spawning Pool
    7 Plains
    7 Swamps

    The idea is to stall, stall, stall, Death pit offering, crush w/ Blinding angel or other single creature, meanwhile dropping a nuke on an irregular basis. Mind you, this was just made up off the top of my head, so it's very rough, but the theme seems sound.
