+ 1 card = Leyline of Sanctity

I guess I'll call this one the Titan, slayer of God-hands (or some God-hands anyway).

With my God-hand dragon combo I recently posted, this might be the weakness.

1, Have the Leylines and gemstone cavern out at the beginning of the game (this can't be countered) - Evening Stars won\'t work and direct x damage spells won\'t work: this leaves us with combat damage as the only choice,

2. Wait until the God-hand is in motion and then play out angel\'s grace (split second; can\'t be countered). You will be saved for the turn unless your opponent has something to make you lose all your life.

3. Play Word of Command on your turn to use a Pact of Negation from their hand. End your turn and they lose the game due to it\'s delayed trigger.

------ Something I just noticed is that supposing the opponent brings out Nicol Bolas with my God-Hand, you won't be able to play Word of Command because you will have to discard your hand. :/

I'm stumped. This technically delays the God-hand kill for one turn (so I figure it's still worth mentioning), but beyond that, there's no recovery. It's delayed to a 2 turn win, tops.

That makes 3 weaknesses for your Dragonstorm combo...

How? I've found no weakness for the dragon God-hand? This one isn't even a weakness.

I posted one of the counters for that specific combo on the same thread...
You know the leyline of anticipation + 5 black lotuses + Hindering touch...

Why would you assume they have a pact in their hand?

Sounds like this post was a response or referenced another which might have the pact
