Split second (As long as this spell is on the stack, players can't play spells or activated abilities that aren't mana abilities.)
You can't lose the game this turn and your opponents can't win the game this turn. Until end of turn, damage that would reduce your life total to less than 1 reduces it to 1 instead.

Angel's Grace Discussion

okay. I also run a Kenrith Win con deck with a caveat of no interaction with other players making the deck a true solitaire deck . Here are some notable cards I recommend and also strategies.
The rule of thumb while tinkering with my Kenrith deck is 1:1 ratio (2:1 for some strats). For example, 3 cards are responsible for winning the game using life gain. Celestial Convergence Felidar Sovereign and Test of Endurance . This means that your deck should consist of 3 ways (not including kenrith) to assist with the life gain strategy. There are gem cards that assist with two different type of alternative wins that are honestly life saving cards. BY this rule, it can help you limit to what is needed. Having 3 supportive cards central to 1 wincon card is a waste of space and those supportive cards become dead in your hands without a tutor or that actual win con card.
Here are some recommended cards to help with alternative wins
Wall of Blood - Now this card is real awesome. It assists with Near-Death Experience . Drop this card and near death experience together. In response to the upkeep trigger, use wall of blood to get your life total to 1 while having Angel's Grace as a response to pingers or burn. Wall of blood also assist in Mayael's Aria if you have the life count for it. 2 birds with 1 stone.
Hermit Druid - Just don't run basics and you get a cheaper, consistent Morality Shift without a need of an empty graveyard. 2 birds with 1 stone if you have 20 creatures and Mortal Combat . Get him back with kenrith if he get's shot down, give him haste... you already know
some of these cards are way out of your budget if you have one. But honestly, this is more a joke thematic deck so why not proxy if your group allows. I always proxy my lands..

IMO the consultation package is too strong of a win con to not run when you have the colors to, especially with Thassa's Oracle on the horizon. It's obvious you're trying to do a Storm strategy, but non-Scepter storm has proven to be heavily obsolete in cEDH and is more in the realm of high-powered casual. Dramatic Scepter on the other hand is a pretty common tier win con, however it sometimes falls short due to not having an outlet in the command zone (such as Thrasios or Urza) and having to depend on a third card like Staff of Domination . It's ultimately your call on what to run, but if I was running Alela I'd have the consultation package with an Ad Nauseam + Angel's Grace combo as well.

Didn't get any games in this weekend, plus trying to make a plan for Thassa's Oracle , not going to be able to keep Red Elemental Blast or Pyroblast out anymore with Flash and Protean Hulk T1/T2 now. Not sure I'm ready for the stax of Hushbringer . Abeyance or Silence don't seem to do anything. Praetor's Grasp to high CMC for me, been happy with Thoughtseize . Angel's Grace and Ad Nauseam back in? Burnout probably has to go in, need 3 spots. I'm not even sure if an efficient instant draw spell to target the opponent would be useful, if one existed.
Necromancy works with Worldgorger Dragon and Leonin Relic-Warder , but I have Dance of the Dead in temporarily testing it. I also have Corpse Dance in testing with Dockside Extortionist . Deciding if Dockside Extortionist is good enough on own without the Infinite interaction with Corpse Dance , if the combo is viable (i don't think so, still needs sac outlet), or whether Dockside Extortionist is just a little too slow and frees up 2 slots. No room for Shallow Grave ATM, need to find the above interaction slots as well.
Need to find a way to win on T2 consistently as well, might have to keep increasing my T1 win draw probability, and T2 and sacrifice T3-T5 to try and get there faster. Changes are costing me efficiency on Diabolic Intent , will not be good if I lose that. Mox Opal cheap now, but the probabilities numbers still don't make sense to contribute to enough T1 wins vs. T1 dead draws. Wishclaw Talisman could help with good artifact count.
Angel of Despair may come out for the instant since she stops Show and Tell + Omniscience but not Thassa's Oracle . Might be her time. Balefire Dragon , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , move away from a damage line Gisela, Blade of Goldnight . Have about 12 cards on my potential cut list anyways, just have to decide how to stop the fish. Other than the efficiency of The Gitrog Monster , all the top commanders are , they need to stop printing OP cards, but let's ban CMC9 Iona, Shield of Emeria because it's no fun, but let's make win on T1 more consistently, just such strange thinking IMHO.
Will keep you posted on how things go.

Megalomania: I know the list you're talking about, however the deck can easily run Laboratory Maniac and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries in addition to Thassa's Oracle with Demonic Consultation , Tainted Pact and Ad Nauseam + Angel's Grace as library emptiers. Yes, Oracle + Consultation is the cleanest line but the others are still fine.
Since Hulk is the primary enabler for this (still), do you think that Trickbind is going to make an appearance since it shuts down both hulk and oracle?

Nice! My first playtest I failed to draw into Kiora and ran out of gas/fog and found myself likely dead on T9... but after that next few playtest runs went REALLY well... I think the dark steel reactor is a bit greedy; but that totally sounds hypocritical coming from someone running cruel ultimatum lol... I personally have a love/hate for Angel's Grace because it wont prevent damage but does keep you alive... Gideon is a great asset here and can be extremely troublesome for the opponent with the flying proliferate creatures that are likewise terrific at getting kiora to -5. Overall great job +1
