One copy of Glaive of the Guildpact Its so super dirty when chucked on a colossus. Usually a game ender.

MagicMarc, Glaive of the Guildpact and Phylactery Lich work so well together. I'll be sad to see lich leave standard but for now he will continue to pulverize with this sword.

Thanks for the comment!

I really like the Glaive of the Guildpact and find it can help give surprise wins in Arena and tabletop play. I use it in a Golgari shell but I really like the lich version here!

ShrimpImp isn't it devastating? It's incredible how much one Phylactery Lich and Glaive of the Guildpact can accomplish. Then once you have a couple out it's game over. An esper deck would suit Lich perfectly i bet. I found Navigator's Compass was a great one drop when I was playing multi colored Lich decks. I'd love to see what you come up with.

i totally underestimated Glaive of the Guildpact, that vigilance and menace is immeasurable in power. started to play around with glaive myself in arena and have been brewing a mean esper list around Phylactery Lich + Glaive of the Guildpact. i'll try to perfect the deck and post it here when i'm done!

ShrimpImpSame here. Such a fun card. The main reason I have the 4 guild gates in there is for the boost it gives Glaive of the Guildpact it's nice when rich is sitting at even a 75 or potentially a 9/5 but thats only when one Lich is holding one sword. Then I thought that since I'm using the gates I can sideboard in a tiny splash of something what ever colour gates I go with. I like Curator's ward but I also used dive down for a little while. I ran this deck as mono black for a long time first and really enjoyed it, but I just like seeing that rich grow, even if it's only one or 2 gates per game.

I do have a Dimir Lich deck as well. It includes Thief of Sanity Nightveil Sprite and Nightveil Predator, in place of the other zombies. But I find mono black with the 4 guild gates is the most affective so far. But I'm open into other ideas regarding different guild gates and other colours.

Thanks for your comment:)

I love Phylactery Lich and my favorite artifact to pair him with, by far, is Glaive of the Guildpact. Lich is one of the best blockers out there so giving him menace for offence and vigilance for defense is devastating. I have used a single Lich, equipped with the Glaive, to fend off 4-6 low to midrange creatures for 4-5 turns easily (I usually have 4 Lich 4 Glaives but one pair is able to do plenty). Gets a little tougher when they get 6/6 and higher creatures out there but with Menace they always have to block with 2 so you can still usually get one of their blockers killed.

All nice and updated! What do you think? Currently, Glaive of the Guildpact is what I consider the weakest card, but I'm still testing it.
