Magic: The Gathering instant loss cards

In Magic: The Gathering, there are cards that make you win, and cards that make your opponents lose. Today, I will be going over the latter and discussing their feasibility.

Door to Nothingness has a tap ability that costs two of every mana that makes a player lose the game. In my opinion, much more efficient at ending a game than Progenitus.

When Phage the Untouchable deals combat damage to a player, that player loses. Watch out because if you bring Phage into play other than summoning her, you will lose the game yourself.

There are also cards in the game that have very good effects, but can also make you lose. They are:

Final Fortune gives a player an extra turn after the current one for the small price of two red mana. The problem is that after this turn, you lose the game. This card is nice if you can finish off a player in another turn.

Immortal Coil has a few effects, tapping to exile two cards in your graveyard to draw a card, and exiling cards in your graveyard instead of losing life. The problem with this card is that if you have no cards in your graveyard, you lose the game. A great card to shift control to another player who doesn’t have a graveyard.

Transcendence is an enchantment that doesn’t make you lose with under 0 life, but you do lose with over 20 life. Now, that sounds like a win-win, but when you lose life, you gain twice that amount instead.

Intervention Pact prevents all damage of a source and gives you that much life instead. You must pay 3 mana at the beginning of your next upkeep or you lose.

Pact of Negation counters a spell. You must pay 5 mana at the beginning of your upkeep or you lose.

Pact of the Titan gives you a 4/4 giant creature token. You must pay 5 mana at the beginning of your upkeep or you lose.

Slaughter Pact destroys a nonblack creature. You must pay 3 mana at the beginning of your upkeep or you lose.

Summoner’s Pact lets you search your library for a green creature and put it into your hand. You must pay 5 mana at the beginning of your upkeep or you lose.

As you see, there are a lot of ways to lose the game, but many of them can pay off. You can buy these cards and more on http://www.mtgfanatic.com for discount prices and amazing rewards programs. Enjoy!
