Darkest Hour + Braids, Cabal Minion + Teysa, Orzhov Scion + This= dirty nasty things for your opponents, as you will be getting a token every time you sacrifice on to Braids, and each opponent looses one in addition to the permanent sacrificed to Braids on their turns.

Oh Grave Pact, how you deserve to be a 5. This card basically reads: if you remove my creatures, you're giving me card advantage. If I sacrifice my creatures in a non-card-disadvantageous way, I'm giving myself card advantage. If I'm doing something fundamental to my deck - like saccing Eldrazi spawns or playing Fleshbag Marauder - with this out, I'm giving myself card advantage. If I play creatures with persist, I'm giving myself major card advantage.

And seeing as it hits everyone, it works just as well in multiplayer. If you're a casual gamer and can afford to, get a playset and throw them in black decks, making people cry. ^^ Even the simplest of combos - something like Reassembling Skeleton and Bloodthrone Vampire - becomes 1B: Bloodthrone Vampire gets +2/+2 and each opponent sacrifices a creature. That's a hell of an effect for 2 mana!

The only downside is the triple black, but hopefully that'll encourage people to play black (or go 2 color with mostly duals).

This card is not only a beast on its own, but it turns several cards' "downsides" into great advantages. Vivisection? Fleshbag Marauder? Hand Of Emrakul (already mentioned). Build around this, peeps!

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.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
