Grave Pact


Whenever a creature you control dies, each other player sacrifices a creature. (Dying is being put into the graveyard from the battlefield. Tokens enter the graveyard before they cease to exist.)

The first card I thought of that you may want to include is Tendershoot Dryad, although it's pretty pricy. Since this is a deck that makes tokens and wants to kill opponents' creatures, I also think Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos would be good includes, although extremely annoying for others to deal with. If you want any win-condition cards, something like Overrun, Beastmaster Ascension, or even the overplayed Craterhoof Behemoth could cut it.

I use some pieces from the Necron deck in my Glissa, the Traitor deck. It has a lot of artifacts going in and out of the graveyard, so those Necron cards were an easy slot in.

If you want to lean into a more staxy/control version, there are several additional cards that can work well with her (Torpor Orb, Smokestack, Tangle Wire, Grave Pact, etc)

I've got some of those in my version of Glissa. Shameless plug for my deck haha. Glissa, Traitor of Mirrodin [Artifact Primer]

RiotRunner789 on Favorite EDH Cards

My favorite card is Grave Pact but that isn't quite niche. I don't seem to have as many oddball fun cards that I tend to play but there are a few oddball or less played ones at least.

Black: Koskun Falls is a favorite of mine. I prefer decks that do not attack, so the tapping is not a big downside. Tainted Remedy because it makes opponent's creatures with lifelink funny. Gift of Doom which doesn't use the stack when morphing which has come in handy more than once. Pestilence is one of my favorite black board wipes which typically is on my board with an indestructible creature. Dystopia since at least someone is playing Selesnya.

White: Peacekeeper because no means no. Aura of Silence use to be more niche but has seen some prominent reprints. Solid removal with a tax effect has tripped up more than one opponent. Mandate of Peace is a great fog and a counter spell in some situations. Underplayed.

Green: Hall of Gemstone for any monogreen deck. Had a blue player try to win on my endstep and about 5 minutes into their combo, I asked where there blue mana was coming from.

Orzhov: Batwing Brume has killed a few Kranko players for me and saved me several times.

Colorless: Null Brooch is just Isochron Scepter with Negate already attached. Arena of the Ancients is great for when my commander doesn't need to tap, or attack, or is played after this and has vigilance. Great card no one expects.

Red: Apocalypse or Jokulhaups for the hard reset. Stranglehold because blue players are the worst and tutoring takes too long.

Blue: Mana Vortex for the slow decent into hell.

Sure thing! Bloodchief Ascension & Mindcrank create an infinite mill and damage cycle.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed & Triskelion create an infinite damage cycle where you remove counters from him to do 1 damage to a player & the rest to kill himself. Then he is returned to the battlefield and you repeat. This also works with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed & Walking Ballista, but he needs a third card like Zulaport Cutthroat or Blood Artist to create the infinite cycle of damage/life gain. If you can’t get one of those two cards, Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos will create infinite sacrifice cycles. Then you could also create infinite Eldrazi tokens/treasures with either Pitiless Plunderer or Pawn of Ulamog.

Next is the Ashnods alter & Pitiless Plunderer combos with either Bloodsoaked Champion or Reassembling Skeleton that can infinitely sacrifice to create infinite colorless mana for cards like Exsanguinate.

Finally if you have Sensei's Divining Top, Bolas's Citadel, & Sheoldred, the Apocalypse you can draw a card with Sensei’s, gain 2 life, then pay 1 life to cast Sensei’s, and repeat until you can find a combo while gaining life with each draw.

Hope this helps!

Amyas on Teysa and her Orzhov Syndicate

wideline1414 I typically get Teysa, Orzhov Scion out early for value and creature exile. The only silver bullet I have is Necrotic Sliver. I count Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Grave Pact, and Dictate of Erebos as mass removal.

I have consider running some more in hand instant speed stuff. Sudden Spoiling has put in so much work for me over the years. I know its not removal but I have a Teferi's Protection in a deck that I do not play much.

In my meta this deck has pulled off a lot of come from behind wins.

Your mana curve is pretty high, and you’re pretty low on board-interaction. I’d suggest dropping Grimdancer and Grave Pact in favour of low mana killspells like Fatal Push and Infernal Grasp.

You can probably go down to running just 3 copies of Phyrexian Arena aswell, as it’s not something you particularly want to draw multiples of.

I’m not sure what the purpose of your sideboard cards are here- they don’t look like they’re helping your bad matchups, they’re just “other cards”?

I love aristocrats, and I personally like using Grave Pact Over Dictate of Erebos, because its 1 mana cheaper, and idk if I've EVER flashed in dictate even once. Cool deck!
