Grave Pact


Whenever a creature you control dies, each other player sacrifices a creature.

Grave Pact Discussion

Profet93 on Cracking Rats - Gone Septic

I see you want cut ideas based on your comment on my wall. As such....

Butcher of Malakir - Too expensive to be impactful. Would rather have Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos if you still wanted to keep it

Gnat Miser - Weak static effect and doesn't do much other than being a tekashi69 (a rat :P)

Sinuous Vermin - Being or not being a monsterous, it is weak. Not worth a slot.

Swarm of Rats - Potentially big dude with no trample, you already have 1 or 2 of these, redundancy is not needed. I don't even think the others are. They seem win-more.

Typhoid Rats - Is cute, but 1/1 deathtouch with no way to abuse is ripe for cutting.

Bad Moon - Definition of win-more. Anthem helps opponents too, weak static effect. Not worth it at all.

Gravepurge - Eh, there is much better recursion in black if you are so inclined.

Cast Down - Meta dependent, but I would go with Go for the Throat

You could add in some more relentless rats or some of the suggestions I recommended.

Coffers is the primary card you should add if you can, SO much ramp. But I'm biased because I have a deck based on it. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would help you ramp out alot too!

Reply here instead of on my wall so I can keep track of everything :)

Grave Pact , Aura Shards , and Dictate of Erebos are fantastic in ghave, allowing you to lock down the board. Then if u throw Woodfall Primus in the mix it gets really brutal.

I like the idea, i build some decks similar to this, but with the difference that the comandant is Shattergang Brothers , that is less recommended but i like it more. Some suggestions are:

To be honest, Butcher of Malakir is far better than Grave Pact because you can protect it a lot easier.

8vomit on Atla Palani or Ghave ???

Ghave is great, so many different ways to build/play it that can all be successful. You also get all the best removal in WBG.

Theres nothing like the feeling of sitting behind Ghave, Guru of Spores , Grave Pact , Aura Shards , and Woodfall Primus . Go ahead, play something.

It's tougher on a budget, since some of the best answers to big creatures in that style of deck are Grave Pact , and Dictate of Erebos , but it's manageable. If you can't fit those into the budget, Butcher of Malakir and Attrition are less expensive and can help, and since you'll be able to keep up on cards pretty easily with Yawgmoth's draw ability, you can afford to run a few targeted removal spells like Hero's Downfall , Murder , Murderous Cut , Ultimate Price , Doom Blade , Vraska's Contempt , Victim of Night etc, all of which can answer problematic creatures when needed.

ShutUpMokuba on New commander products

ZendikariWol The Staples can be found for a lower price if you really want them and have the patience to look for an occasion. I was able to find for 65$ Phyrexian Arena + Demonic Tutor + Cyclonic Rift + Grave Pact + Black Market + Phyrexian Altar . The fact is that if i wanted a Bitterblossom Tomorrow i would have to pay its full price. If i can wait i could find it for a lower price and i'd have even more chances if i would buy more cards from the same person.

About the Command zone announcement video: I would love to think that you are right. But, first of all, they are most likely to release those reprints in the commander legends set which we don't know when it will be released but it will be in summer/fall probably and i don't know how the market will react to this set. Second point, i don't think that they wanted to "warn" collectors. In my humble opinion they just wanted to say "guys, prepare for new fancy products because we, at Wizard of the cost, really care for you, commander players!!". And they were talking about some Cultivate and Sakura-Tribe Elder stuff. Last point you are probably going to ignore is this: New commanders may require old fancy cards. There will be reprints for sure but with some moderation. And the card that won't be reprinted may very well spike in price.

I see them reprint a Phyrexian Arena because, gameplay-wise, you can have your card draw for one life each turn. I see them reprint a Cyclonic Rift because yeah you can bounce back everything. But i don't see cards like Necropotence , Cabal Coffers and Vampiric Tutor . Why? Because those cards really give you an edge. Sure they could give you in a Commander Pre con a Semi-Competitive EDH deck. They would sell them 10x times they sell normal pre cons and they would not be affected by cards losing value. But they still don't do that. They rather create new cards like K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth so everyone buys the product without the need for reprints.
