I think greg is saying that the ridiculous flavor of GRAVE PACT in particular, should have warranted an exception and gotten the 'dies' wording early.

also, Ghave likes this card. I mean, if you needed me to tell you that, that's a LITTLE sad, but definitely this goes in every Ghave Guru of Spores deck you can think of.

EDIT: Now horrendously broken-er than before. Thank you, Innistrad and Morbid!!! ^_^
(Reaper of the Abyss is particularly evil.)

Abyssal Gatekeeper makes for a truly yummy deathstorm.

In my Replica deck, it turns all of my Replica's to " Sacrifice, Some Cool effect + opponents sacrifice a creature" haha xD

Like Wizard Replica "Blue, Sacrifice: Counter a Spell" and By the way, since he died, you have to sacrifice a creature too~ It really keeps their field advantage down because of Replicates :D

Combine with a way to give the "3/1" replica's a Persist effect, and turns there effect to making it so you have to sacrifice 2 creatures when I use their effect. xD

I absolutely despise seeing this card on the other side of the table. 5/5.

Grave Pact + Attrition, SO BRUTAL!

@Saltar: Attrition won't work, because they can just sacrifice the targeted creature to Grave Pact and the ability will fizzle.

Still Gravepact is phenomenal. Run with Fleshbag Marauder, evoke creatures, Eldrazi spawn, or whatever. It's just that good. If you want to be extra brutal, run it with Karmic Justice and Martyr's Bond.

Recently started playing one of it. From that point on, my first reaction to half the cards I see is "nice sinergy with Grave Pact". Reassembling Skeleton, It that Betrays, Shriekmaw, any token maker (Mitotic Slime, for example), and that is only the beggining.

It's almost always worth it if you can spare 4 mana (which you almost always can in Commander/EDH, though the heavy color requirement may hurt a bit there).

It That Betrays loves this card. It doesn't trigger with Annihilator, but in a multiplayer or tag-team game, this card can be devastating.

Best game I played with this... EDH deck at school with like 6 or 7 people... I had my mono-white deck, and a friend with my mono-black deck attacked me. He attacked, I blocked. Some stuff died. Then I realized what was going to happen... bwahahaha

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
