"Get back in that grave this instant, or so help me I will turn this cemetery around!"

multiple grave pacts aren't dead... they trigger seperately!

This is my favorite art for this card, and I feel those who say it doesn't make sense are misinterpreting it.

The grim reaper's job is to take dead souls to the afterlife, not put bodies in graves. That's why the grave is filled in.

This is what happens when Death comes to take you, and you argue with him that you're not dead. He takes you to your own grave and points to it, as if to say "Oh yeah? Well tell me, wiseguy, if you're not dead, what's your body doing six feet below a tombstone?"

Works well with Evoke.

I think this one has the best art. Fleshbag Marauder + Thraximundar + this.

I also like this artwork most, don't quite get why Wizards let Puddnhead make a new one for 9th Edition.

Don't get me wrong, his artwork is awesome as well, but this one suits better to the effect imho.
And this art was already a new one exclusively drawn for the Core Set - not the one from Stronghold. So i wonder why it got changed again - Puddnhead's artwork could have been used for another great black enchantment instead.
Well, now these days most people will ássociate Grave Pact with Puddnhead's art.

This one looks cartoony and contrived to me. The grim reaper standing there and pointing is a bit too much. And it doesn't make sense that the grave looks like it's already full. The better choice would have been to have the pit open, readily accepting a ton of new bodies.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
