Intervention Pact Discussion

  • Hmm, I'd definitely remove Enslave. It's a weak link that costs a lot.

  • War Elemental is super prone to removal, and is 3 of one color, so a bad idea.

  • Armageddon Clock is costly, and rather ineffective. Mogis, God of Slaughter is a much more reliable pinger, and has potential threat removal.

  • I'd throw in Intervention Pact or something similar. Thaumatic Compass could also be effective.

  • Any of the smaller "clock" effects can be traded too, such as Shrine of Burning Rage. I'd try filtering in more tutors and lands.

If you find you can reliably get Gid o' the Trials' Emblem, you might consider Slaughter Pact and Intervention Pact.

Draw well!

I get it that the deck is all-in with Gids, but you might consider finding room for Wrath of God. Also, Slaughter Pact and Intervention Pact are amazing with Gid o' the Trials' Emblem.

Draw well!

MrSilk I already had 4 Lotus Bloom to make the deck work. I am a little iffy on running rainbow lands since the idea is not to cast the pacts and pay for them. Summoner's Pact, Slaughter Pact, and Intervention Pact are more geared to force my opponent to pay mana they can't create or afford.

I would like to use Slaughter Pact if I could. I may run a Vivid Creek or two, but I will need to test. Thank you for the ideas.

Spent a year tinkering with aggro-lifegain, was sort of an opposite zoo style deck. If you are going wide and low add in some control like ghostly prision, Path to Exile, Oblivion Ring and both of the soul sisters: Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant (8 of total). If you are going for a fast burn-gain style the cards I listed above would work great, personal advice from a year and a half experiance playong with only lifegain: if you go Soul sisters prepare control, if you go Martyr Proc then prepare for disruption. Also Intervention Pact is highly underrated, it won me a game aginst infect and would be great in the current Death's Shadow meta for modern.

Also you could add 4x Street Wraith and 4x Manamorphose for more thinning. It's almost like playing 8 less cards in your deck. And if you're worried about killing yourself you can also use Intervention Pact to stop the damage from Madcap Experiment.

Cloudchaser.Kestrel on List of holy day / Fog effects

You'll note that I've specifically omitted single point damage reduction from the list. While I might occasionally run a Intervention Pact in a holy day deck - this list is only things that prevent all damage from a category.

I know they're typically considered silly cards, but since you can't keep a board-state style protection (pillowfort), have you considered Comeuppance, Fog, Holy Day, Darkness and the like? Maybe even Spore Frog or Kami of False Hope? They all fall into what your deck already does if you can squeak them in. Also/Alternatively, Angel's Grace or Intervention Pact?

Overall awesome silly deck and it will be interesting to see where you take it, so plus one from me.
