Pact of Negation Discussion

TheMagicKid on Mono Blue (Splash) Infinite Mana Combo

2 days ago

If you don't want the deck to be super expensive just remove the Pact of Negation and add in some more counter spells.

Well, it sure wouldn't be fun to play against this one at all. But, it looks like your missing a few other staples, like Capsize, Force of Will, and Pact of Negation. Otherwise, looks like this one would be quite frustrating to play against. Are you looking at this as a 1v1, or group, or both?

BlueScope on Can I Reverberate a Warrior's ...

4 days ago

What you're looking for is is a combination of Time Warp, which targets a player and can be redirected, and Warrior's Oath, which has that player lose the game. The obvious thing here is that no card with "target player takes an extra turn, then loses the game" exists, as half the strategies would be to cheat this card out on the first turn.

Hive Mind is usually the go-to card for this kind of win condition, but only because you can use it in combination with Pact of Negation (or similar cards), which avoid giving extra turns while creating the predicament of losing the game unless you can produce a certain kind of mana.

FrateIndovino on Mimeoplasm EDH ft. Ifnir Cycling-discard combo

1 week ago

Mimeoplasm has been my first Commander and recently i was curious about Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. Three cards really impressed me: Archfiend of Ifnir,Blowfly Infestation,Nest of Scarabs. Unfortunately Hapatra can't get a lot of benefits from discard or cycling.I appreciate your attemptive to put together all these pieces. I've some questions/observations.-How do Hermit Druid performs in this deck? You've got 11 basic lands that really low its power. On a second thought: What if Hermit druid puts an enchantment into the graveyard? The same is for Life from the Loam. Your recursion seems a bit mana intensive.-You lack the power to say NO: counterspells.Melira, Sylvok Outcast,Vizier of Remedies and Solemnity can shut down your Ifnir strategy and your only removal: Zenith. Solemnity shuts down Mimeoplasm too.Prowling Serpopard defends only your creatures, but your main combo is creatureless: New Perspectives,Shefet Monitor,Tortured Existence.Maybe you could add Pact of Negation. With your cycle combo you can get infinite basic landfall, and the payment on your next upkeep won't be a problem.But you need at least other counterspells or generic removals e.g. Abrupt Decay, cutting something.

You can use cards like Seal of Primordium which you play proactively and have sit there specifically for Choke, Blood Moon, etc. You can also use Chaos Warp (as previously mentioned) which doesn't care about Blood Moon.

other than that, your best option is to just run a defensive counterspell suite. Cards like Swan Song, Spell Pierce, Pact of Negation, Force of Will, etc which are either very easy to cast, or free.

Another option would be to use Sneak Attack (which can be played through a Blood Moon) to cheat in cards like Reclamation Sage or your Manglehorn (though it can't hit enchantments).

Tolaria West seems to be missing! This will get Pact of Negation Mana Crypt any other land you want, or just be a land. Seems like a must have to me

CharonSquared on Lifespark combo

I'm not sure I understand the combo. Is your goal to turn Forbidden Orchard into a creature using Wind Zendikon or Lifespark Spellbomb while Intruder Alarm is in play, then cast your 1-of Walking Ballista to kill your opponent with your infinite mana? I realize you have a lot of tutors, but that's a four card combo that's vulnerable to almost any form of disruption, and you don't have any way to fight the disruption outside of your 1 Pact of Negation.

fatal7x on If Oprah Played Magic

This is a very tempting deck to make. I feel like you need Hive Mind (mostly for fun and it fits the theme of Oprah) and 1 of each pact card example: Pact of Negation.
