How are they the same? "Breathe Deep" gives 12 discipline each second, SS lasts 1 second, effectively giving 12 discipline. Since the cost of SS is 14, and you get 12 back, you could say "Breathe Deep: Reduce the cost to 2 Discipline." which is what "Special Recipe" (Reduce cost to 12 discipline) does but better.
Why are they useless? "Breathe Deep" might not be so useless, considering at the cost of 2 discipline you can spam SS. On the other hand... "Special Recipe" does the same thing but worse, making it useless/obsolete.
:/ Are those runes even considered to be re-done? At the very least the "Special Recipe"?
Though... quite honestly, if I had to use SS, I would take Lingering Fog for it's extended duration or Displacement so I can gtfo of those sticky situations.
