If you need to survive a really blistering attack, Spirit Link is fast; I don't see such a need in T2, and Prison Term seems the best of the bunch, even then. Condemn also seems better.

i like oblivion ring better than all of these cards, it can also take care of bitterblossom and planeswalkers, though it's technically not a pacifism like card Wink

Pacifism and Oblivion Ring are both enchantments. As a result, Oblivion Ring is a Pacifism-like card!

Spirit Link works in no way, shape or form similarily to Pacifism. If I have you at 3 life and you enchant my 3/3 Elephant token with Spirit Link, I can still attack you with it, causing you to lose the game because of state based effects (having 0 life in this case) before the life gaining as a chance to come into effect. It's a common misconception a lot of players have.

Now to answer the question, the best Pacifism cards in Standard are Temporal Isolation, Prison Term and, of course, Pacifism. I think Prison Term is the best one of the bunch for most decks because you get to snatch up bigger or more dangerous threats as they come into play, something that Pacifism spells always had a problem with. However, enchanting your Auratog with Temporal Isolation can oftenly win you the game.

Pariah
2W
Enchantment - Aura
Enchant creature.
All damage that would be dealt to you is dealt to enchanted creature instead.

A card that I am particularly fond of and one that is always misread by opponents who assume it to be another pacifism variant, is Pariah. While it suffers from all the same limitations as the other auras, for just 1 additional mana, you can effectively buy yourself a turn of damage free combat and effectively kill the enchanted creature.

It works even better against poor opponents who simply stop attacking altogether for fear of losing the enchanted creature!

Faith's Fetter's 3W
Enchantment - Aura
Enchant permanent
When Faith's Fetters comes into play, you gain 4 life.
Enchanted permanent's activated abilities can't be played unless they're mana abilities.
If enchanted permanent is a creature, it can't attack or block.

And as long as we are using cards that aren't t2 legal, why not play that faith's fetters with a mox pearl?

Cage of Hands is nicely "repeatable," and often overlooked because it came from Kamigawa block.


I'd say it's overlooked because it would get you a DQ if you played it in a Standard tourney.
