Tainted Pact


Remove the top card of your library from the game. You may put that card into your hand unless it has the same name as another card removed this way. Repeat this process until you put a card into your hand or you remove two cards with the same name, whichever comes first.

Tainted Pact Discussion

Daedalus19876: I like your suggestions, and all of them will be going in. I do have a comment to leave you with about Tainted Pact, even though it is getting slotted in.

So, with so much going on in this deck, my biggest failure would be to not have any of the combos left to execute, which puts me in a losing situation. Most FC decks are vulnerable to this, as with most Hermit Druid decks. People learn to respond to the combo, because once it gets going they know it is too late to act anymore. This is why Ive added so many other ways to win. Tainted Pact lets me search up my strongest and most consistent wincon, but at a cost of most likely exiling the rest of them. As I said before, I am putting it in the deck, but I am also going to be monitoring its performance very closely.

Anyways, with that rant out of the way, thanks man for the wonderful suggestions!

I'd go with City of Solitude, Defense Grid, and Tainted Pact over Autumn's Veil, Ricochet Trap, and Asceticism (though you'd have to change your Snow-Covered Forest to a regular Forest to make Tainted Pact work).

Preemptive protection and another tutor will help you more than conditional responses, in my experience - plus, Tainted Pacting for Food Chain often puts Squee or Eternal Scourge in exile automatically, making it "tutor" for both at once.

HaveANuke I only run 4 basics so Earthcraft/Squirrel Nest won't be reliable enough unfortunately

WestonPerini The snow basics are there for Tainted Pact. Essentially a Snow-Covered Forest is a separate entity from a basic Forest so it allows my deck to have 0 duplicates and still run 4 basics, that way Tainted Pact won't stop my search because I've flipped two basic forests.

Solid list I must say, how does Muldrotha, the Gravetide and Tainted Pact works out for you? Also, is there a possible replacement for Timetwister?

If you're looking for alternative wincons, Laboratory Maniac with Tainted Pact to wipe your entire library (since there are no duplicate cards) could be good.

greyninja: yeah, the Salvagers combo is nice. And the fact that they can recur Walking Ballista is really good.

Tainted Pact is good with labman for sure, but outside of that I would be a bit reluctant to run it.

If I've got more than one life then I'll be tapping Elves of Deep Shadow, don't you worry about that :P and cheers, I'm glad you like the deck.

Holy shit the Lion's Eye Diamond\Auriok Salvagers combo is insane

Tainted Pact is one I like. Be sure to run only one of each basic ;)

I guess you choose to not tap Elves of Deep Shadow after a bit lol +1 on the deck from me

I briefly considered Tainted Pact for a similar role, which can more easily be used as a cantrip of sorts, but ultimately decided against it. One of the big strengths of this deck is that you can switch between plans on the fly, and those cards kinda lock you into the lab maniac plan once you use them.
