wolfdance Grave Pact does work with tokens. Tokens only get exiled after they land in the graveyard, so they trigger effects. It's why cards like Abzan Ascendancy has to specify "nontoken" creatures in order to not combo with themselves.

I was pretty surprised to see no Grave Pact . You are already running sac outlets. Would be a great include to help control the board.

rdean14: Got no idea for Plink, but the best card in that deck besides Grave Pact would totally be Assault Suit .

Have you thought about including Crystalline Crawler ? It does an incredible amount of work in my build. I’m surprised it isn’t even on Mazirek’s EDHREC page. It turns every sacrifice into a mini ritual or a substantial one with a Grave Pact effect in play. It’s absolutely fantastic at keeping storm like turns going

Fun concept.

Not sure if I believe her static ability is all that strong.

Granted in a shell that focuses on mass-producing saprolings, it can outright win the game. Although that same effect can be achieved through a Zulaport Cutthroat and any free sac outlet .

If we're talking Standard/Modern, I believe a 7 MV (feels weird to say instead of CMC) that requires a major setup for the pay off is too clunky to be competitive.


What if you changed the static to a triggered ability instead of an active one? That means you can utilize the plants and saprolings as blocking fodder and still get the benefits of them dying.

Also I'm puzzled why the -4 (which is a very substantial amount of loyalty) only grants specific creature types either lifelink (on a zero power token) or wither (on a 1/1 body). That seems disproportionally bad. Especially for a 7 MV planeswalker.

The ultimate is just a double Kokusho, the Evening Star death trigger, which is quite nice.

I must comment on the use of hybrid mana as well, since green does not deal in making players lose life (well outside combat). I feel like you cannot justify the use of hybrid mana here. At the very least it should be in the mana cost to force both colors in there.


I don't mean to take over, but I can't help but make a suggestion for a revised version.

No, vampires are great for utilizing sacrifice. I have a casual modern vamp deck that is similar and wins quite often in multiplayer. Though I use a couple red/black cards over black/white vamps and I go with more of a Sacrifice theme. Cards you may want to consider for this deck are- Bloodghast , Liliana, Dreadhorde General , Vampire Nocturnus , and maybe some more Grave Pact .

If you are going for more of a token theme, you could try a few Captivating Vampire . They can be devastating to opponents with enough tokens on your board. Also Anointed Procession .

Good insight! I see what you mean about running Dictate of Erebos over Grave Pact .

With my playgroup in particular I've realized that for this deck to really excel, it needs a bit more control/removal.

I added the tutor cards (Vampiric, Demonic) to help find those needed cards.

Also was going to add Cryptic Command to tap down a player and try to swing out for the win
