Grave Pact

Grave Pact


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

Nice combo! It might be a nice backup wincon to a Revel in Riches strategy. Though, to be fair, I do think that the regular condition for revel could be more consistent. Revel in Riches plus Toxic Deluge or sacrifice strategies like Grave Pact plus Altar of Dementia are the normal ways to go, and I think that they might work more consistent. But again, I really like it as a backup because sac effects are magnets for removal. Altar of Dementia is never long lived on the table : )

Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos say hello.

Also, maybe Skullclamp.

Profet93, all good points. I have a copy of Contamination, but don't feel like being that cutthroat; same reason I didn't run Grave Pact and similar cards. Bitterblossom is fantastically out of budget for me, and I don't own a copy.

You'll get no arguments from me on the benefits of Skullclamp. If I find one laying around, I'll consider getting it added. Otherwise, I've got some fun interactions for card draw right now. I agree that Deathsprout is costly. But, it's also like casting Murder and Rampant Growth in the same spell. It may get replaced someday. Arcane Signet will likely get worked in at some point, too.

Thanks for looking and making the suggestions! It's good to hear from you!

I can't help but notice you have zero ways to deal with noncreature permanents! Trying to win while ignoring them is a possibility, but it would be a major drag to be shut down by something like Meekstone, Teferi's Moat or Grave Pact.

I'd strongly consider making room for a few answers to such cards - some of the premiere choices include Hull Breach, Nature's Claim, Ancient Grudge, Krosan Grip and Shattering Spree. Sticking more to the creature side of things, some good options include Reclamation Sage, Outland Liberator  Flip, Thrashing Brontodon, Viridian Zealot, World Breaker and the blanket-answer Bane of Progress. Hopefully some of these cards can help dig you out of tight situations in the future!

Rest in Peace stops Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact. To stop single instance effects like Fleshbag Marauder, we have Cartouche of Solidarity and our token producers, Hallowed Haunting and Archon of Sun's Grace. The later two would need to be played proactively to have something else to sacrifice while Cartouche can be brought out at instant speed.

Teferi’s Protection is already in the list. Robe of Stars is not a bad idea, but it can’t be tutored for like Flickerform can.

Cards like Single Combat just kind of do nothing in the deck. There’s no need to destroy opponents’ creatures when none of them can block us and we can tutor out a lock to prevent damage. I’d much rather spend that mana on auras that actually advance our game plan.

Two of my favorite punishment type cards to run in a deck together at the moment are The Meathook Massacre and Grave Pact. Punish your opponents and gain life.

This is a cool commander! Maybe you could find space for an Avatar of the Resolute since it's one of the most efficient cards in the green stompy w/counters design space and it would probably get huge with the rest of your deck's synergy?

The main reason I would include is because as I've found out with my Uril deck and other Voltron type decks if you ever face certain matchups even with the best protection in the game you might run into a Celestial Flare, the Annihilator Eldrazi, sac decks like Ghave that run Grave Pact and the like.

If you're intent on only winning with your commander Voltron strat you can add additional protection with Tajuru Preserver.

Also if you run into a lot of countermagic or stack shenanigans you might try Krosan Grip.

If you're looking for more control, and are willing to spend upwards of $30, I can't recommend Grave Pact enough. Every time you sacrifice a creature, your opponents must do the same. It also gets around hexproof and indestructible.
