This + Savra + Shambling Shell/Grave-shell Scarab = a 2:1 ratio of your sacrifices to your opponents.

Doomgape+ Creakwood Liege+ Grave Pact + Deathrender= LOL

12/12 Doomgape
+3 Life at every beginning of your upkeep
The opponent has to sacrifice a creature whenever you sacrifice a creature (3/3 green worm)
Whenever you sacrifice a creature, you may play any creature from hand for the cost of 2

-High cost
-Greakwood Liege may be easily killed/destroyed and your combo is broken

@ Misago:

Additional Grave Pacts are not dead draws. They just allow you to get more carnage per sacrifice. This is just broken with Eldrazi Spawns. It makes softcasting a Hand of Emrakul into a bloodbath.

(Card Rating: 4.0) Grave Pact is always a pleasure to play in a multiplayer format. If your oponent's do not have an answer for an enchantment in thier hand, any strategy they have involving even the most sturdy of creatures (i.e. Progenitus) will be fruitless. In light of the hefty 3 black mana required to cast it, Grave Pact is a rather difficult card to splash. Because having more than one in your hand equates to a dead card, Grave Pact makes my list of superb "one of's". Since you will be already running black, I recommend Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor to make it seem like you are running three in your deck. If you are on a budget, Diabolic Tutor will suffice. In my favorite casual black/red goblin deck, I run 1 Grave Pact along with... 4 Mogg War Marshal, 2 Goblin Chirurgeon, 2 autoca... (see all)

It That Betrays, Bloodthrone Vampire. Sac any creature, opponents sac creatures, you sac those creatures, clear the board and get like a 17/17 or more vampire attacking. Not to mention the freakin 11/11 Annihilator 2

@ Artscrafter: The best sac engine (that's in standard) would probably be Piston Sledge.

Anyway, this is a decent card. Maybe the new undying creatures from Dark Ascension could go well with this card. I suppose if you ran mono-black, which you'd kind of have to do anyway to run this, Geralf's Messenger would be nice.

This IS A Very Exciting Card To Play In Edh But I Dont Think That It Would Be Very Good In Modern Unless You Infinite Sac With This.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
