I love this card big huggy bunches, but darn it if i can get triple black any time before the heat death of the universe using only the lands included in the precon.

I'm not completely certain why this didn't go into the Counterpunch pre-con, but ended up in the Devour for Power.
Don't get me wrong, it's good in both, but the commander in Counterpunch directly contributes to saccing your own creatures.

The rulings are hilarious...

Grave Pact
Glissa, the Traitor
Arcbound Ravager

Use the Arcbound Ravager to sacrifice the Ornithopter
Ornithopter goes to your graveyard
Grave Pact makes everyone else sac a creature
Glissa, the Traitor returns the Ornithopter from your graveyard to your hand
Play the Ornithoper again
Repeat until you opponents have no creatures
Swing with a monstrous Arcbound Ravager

Grave Pact Pact {0}


Echo {3BBB}

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

If you don't pay the Echo cost, you lose the game.

I agree with DarthParallax, this card works much better in CounterPunch than Devour for Power.

@saltar: It wouldn't give you extra advantage, you sacrifice the creature as part of the activation cost, triggering grave pact while the destroy effect is on the stack, your opponent can then sac the creature you targeted, making Grave Pact redundant.

It doesn't say dies because it's pre M12.

This card is insanely good, to the point that I'm not sure if I even like it. You build around it, it'll completely shut down all of your opponents at once (provided that their win conditions in some way involve creatures). And if you just toss it in as filler... it'll still win you plenty of games. Great political card too; nobody wants to kill your stuff, and people won't attack you if you've got so much as a chump-blocker.

I'm tempted to put it in every black deck I make, and I don't like cards that are that good. Yeah, the mana cost is very black-intensive, but if your opponent doesn't have a way to get rid of this (and not every color does) it's basically a guaranteed win, and not a very creative one. Butcher of Malakir is a much fairer version of this card. We've banned this in my playgroup because it makes games so predictable and one-sided.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
