This + Carrion Feeder + Reassembling Skeleton = 1Black to kill any opposing creature ( hexproof and regen don't matter. ) Throw in a Mortician Beetle for extra nastiness.

Also known as "Dick move, the card."

the quintessential black enchantment. if you are playing creatures and your opponent has this out, you must get rid of it, or you will most likely lose. game changing card like that is 5/5

pretty crazy if both you and your opponent EACH have one of these out.

Grave Pact + Mortician Beetle + Phyrexian Altar + Gravecrawler.

Kill everything for free every round and have the fattest beetle of all time

Turns Killing Wave into B: Sacrifice any number of creatures and they have to sacrifice the same number of creatures

fantasic card. remember when i put in my g/b deck with saproling burst, verdant force, devouring strossus, phyrexian dreadnought (before the stifle ruling)... also works well in a token deck using thallid devourer as a finish move and in about a million other ways. indestructible? no problem and as many of the invul combos players make involve creatures, it can come in handy in getting rid of difficult situations (i remember using this to win a game against someone using worship, concerted effort and pristine angel). powerful in any format when placed with the right cards.

This is hilarious in a Ghave, Guru of Spores deck. Every time you sacrifice a saproling to put a +1/+1 counter on something, each opponent pretty much has to sacrifice a creature. And then, of course, you'll have cards like Scavenger Drake in there, and that's just double (or triple/quadruple depending on the number of players) the fun~

With Apprentice Necromancer out it reads " Pay X black mana and sacrifice apprentice necromancer: each opponent sacrifices X creatures. Then return a creature from your graveyard to play it has haste. Sacrifice it at end of turn. Then each opponent sacrifices a creature."
This is without adding Carnival of Souls to make it free, or then adding death's shadow to hit a opponent for 12 if you reduced your life to 1. Don't want to reduce your life total then deathgreeter will protect you, if he brings a friend then black has the lowest cost most efficient infinite life combo:
Appentice necromancer
x2 Deathgreeter s
Carnival of souls.
2 dark ritual s turn 2 for 3rd turn lulz
or ornothopter culling the weak Dark Rit for turn 1 play turn 2 lulz

Combine with Last Laugh?

Anything that dies *ever* will nuke *everything* (well, creature wise anyway.) Keep a sacrifice creature around (they're usually 1 toughness) and if they go to nuke Last Laugh, you sac the creature, everyone else sacs one, and then you're dealing about 4 damage probably, further triggering others. If they target gravepact, it goes to the graveyard (or you can sac, depending) and everything gets nuked for 2+ damage, probably cascading into more death. Fun stuff.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
