This + Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker + something like Festering Goblin + Pawn of Ulamog. (The Pawn tokens don't come back, but you've probably board wiped anyway.) And of course something akin to Bloodthrone Vampire.

This + Abyssal Gatekeeper makes no one want to attack you. Throw an Innocent Blood into the equation and your opponents sac 4

Ooo Gave Pact + Tombstone Stairwell

End of turn all zombie tokens die ... Your opponents must sacrifice cards = to tokens lost. Board wipe most enemy Decks lol.

Best Sac Trap card period.

Butcher of Malakir costs quite a bit more, but at the same time it only requires opponents to sacrifice rather than all players, so it becomes more applicable in team based multiplayer games. Not only this, but if Grave Pact gets disenchanted, it just leaves, whereas if butcher gets destroyed, his death triggers his own effect.

Even with these two caveats, I still say grave pact is better. But butcher i find to be an acceptable Standard alternative.

this + arcbound worker + arcbound stinger + other modular cards + skeleton shard + mindslash + discipe of the vault = this card has too many ways to be incredibly cheap.

Grave Pact + Mortuary = Great combo.

Wow, sometimes powercreeps goes the other way, this is vastly superior to butcher of malakir, if they reprinted this, any black player would stack 4 of these without a second thought. This is creature advantage that really makes the opponent have a bad day, and most decks have no way of getting rid of enchantments (honestly, what's a black mage to do against enchantments?).

Such a great card with absolutely no drawbacks. There is no excuse for not having one in any sacrifice deck. 5/5

i may have missed one but im suprised no one has mentioned eldrazi tokens with this card. i made a black and red deck with eldrazi token generators and four of these cards in it. its like a killing machine! sacrifice my tokens for mana and guess what? now u have to kill one of your creatures or several (depending how many i have out). imagine sacking like ten eldrazi tokens for ten mana then tapping a red for a bane fire...then reverberating it....yep...thats likely end game...especially with hostility out...and yes i've done it several times with this deck :P ....just sayin this card is really underrated

It that Betrays, your Eldrazi spawn and this.

You sacrifice for say, 5 mana, they sacrifice 5 creatures and you gain them creatures.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
