KongMing: I will definitely play test Warstorm Surge . I had Where Ancients Tread in the list before for a similar effect, and I found that I often had better things to do with my mana, and it often ended up as a dead card, or I just never got value from it. Surge seems suitably different though, and i'll give it a try. Cheers!!

Appreciate the responses everyone!
Boza That's how I would love it to work (gaining a million life), but I'm still thinking it doesn't since the "life" that was lost was the 20 you had in the original example. It's strange how you can lose beyond what you have however and go into the negatives...
Kogarashi When you say "Even though your life total would go into the negatives, you're still losing that life. Therefore Children of Korlis would recover that amount of life." do you mean losing the original 20, or losing 5000 in the example? After you mention Children of Korlis would set your life total back to what you started at (20 in this example), and while I totally agree with you and believe this is how it would work out, the wording on both Pain's Reward and Children of Korlis i.e., "lose life/regain life lost" really makes me think it could be interpreted both ways. 1) That you only really lost what you had (20), or 2) You technically lost something (life?) beyond zero to bring you to a negative life total, therefore, would gain whatever crazy amount was bid and lost.
Thanks again everyone for chiming in. I'm going to mull this over. Welcoming more responses from anyone about this as I'm still not convinced we've found the answer. Boza and Kogarashi, initially you answered opposite to each other. Boza when you say "Yeah I got excited" do you mean to say you now agree with Kogarashi and that your life would just go back to where it started (in this example, 20)?
Not trying to be a pain, very much appreciate the answers. Maybe the wording just breaks Magic, but if anyone has anything to add, please do so! This has been bugging the heck out of me.

I couldn't help myself but look for a few cards that would make this million life dream to come true but sadly the only thing I managed to find was adding a forth piece to the combo with the lowest CMC being Oketra's Last Mercy at 3CMC, but that one comes at a cost. Next one start at 6-7CMC like activating Angel of Grace from the graveyard, Providence , Resolute Archangel and Form of the Dinosaur , but at that point I'd just use Repay in Kind to just win(that would require replacing Angel's Grace with Phyrexian Unlife tho), but that would make the combo very different from what was originally intended :/.
Hope this helps you mate, cheers!

Why not Angel of Grace ? Unlimited entries from your citadel!

There seem to be a lot of viable upgrades. First off, replace Thought Collapse with Absorb . This is nearly a strict upgrade as milling is pretty useless and the one white mana can be managed with your stock 2-color manabase. Summary Judgment also isn't at constructed power levels. You could replace it with Ixalan's Binding or Seal Away . You can also try Teferi if you own copies, but I'd not run out and buy them just for this deck. The sideboard can see a lot of changes made: split Negate with Disdainful Stroke . Add another big creature to beat aggro, maybe another lyra or an Angel of Grace . Also Sorcerous Spyglass and The Immortal Sun are both great anti-walker options/

Yes I've been playing this deck every chance I get! Basically every up-date I've done on this deck has been because after play testing it and realizing what I need to change or just new cards I have acquired. So right now I currently own all these cards expect some of the special lands. I just order them on tcgplayer. Mistveil Plains and Emeria, The Sky Ruin is a must for me, however I'm wondering if having to many special lands is going to be a bad thing.
heyzeus_ I see your point on Lumbering Battlement where it would just be better for me to drop an angel rather using it only for board wipe protections, so instead I replaced it with Steelshaper's Gift . I also swapped Angelheart Vial for Coercive Portal because it grants me two things which is the chance to draw or a board wipe which is what i'm after. None of my friends take extra turns so it makes sense to actually not have Ugin's Nexus in this deck because there are defiantly stronger cards that i have.
Honestly I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what else to add besides expensive cards such as Land Tax , Admonition Angel , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Archangel of Thune , Stoneforge Mystic , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Angel of Jubilation , The Immortal Sun , Baneslayer Angel , Crucible of Worlds , and maybe Angel of Grace . But in my eyes these are the big buys that 10 dollars or up which probably wont get in tell summer.
