That only works because Immortal Coil will see Disallow in the graveyard the next time it counts the number of cards in your graveyard.

So, in other words, the combo does not work the way I want it to? Since Immortal Coil is a triggered ability, it will never stop trying to trigger once the graveyard is empty, even if Lich's Masteryis out.

So, even in paper magic, this would still result in a draw? If so, that's very disappointing.

Looking at this interaction further, having both of these cards out with an empty graveyard would result in a draw. Immortal Coil's third ability triggers when you have no graveyard, Lich's Mastery prevents you from losing, then Immortal Coil triggers again. This repeats indefinitely unless someone can interact with one of the two cards.

@M_Malcom - With Lich's Mastery you cannot lose the game until it leaves the battlefield. Most likely by exiling itself to its life loss ability.

Immortal Coil prevents damage to you then exiles that many cards from your graveyard. The damage still gets prevented even if you have nothing in your graveyard.

With both in play, you will never have to exile any permanent to Lich's Mastery and you won't lose the game for having no cards in graveyard.

Nihil Spellbomb would work well in making sure your opponent has no cards in their graveyard, before giving them the Immortal Coil.

Funkydiscogod-What's the list for your Immortal Coil deck?

The question 1 is kind of complicated...it depends what other people are playing.

Burn, dredge and infect are all good ~budgetish~ archetypes. They can all be bought cheap with budget alternatives, and upgraded to full power as you get the real cards.

My LGS was overrun with them. I know how to metagame, so I made a deck built around Harmless Offering an Immortal Coil, designed to kill those three decks: Dredge couldn't handle the face I was trying to keep clean opponent graveyard for the kill. Burn and infect couldn't handle the "life gain". Once Immortal Coil came online, the fetchlands I crack gain me life, and Tome Scour became a cantrip "gain 3 life". It wasn't a tier deck, but it beat those three types more often than not.

Anyway...top 8'd and won a pack. A week later I ran into Blue-Tron, Storm and Jund and got my face murdered off. Could never run that deck again...

The point of the story is that if you know how to metagame, then you can win. So, who are you up against?

I would choose cards that fit the purpose well and put in higher numbers of them in; having various cards at 1x and 2x hurts your consistency of drawing both Immortal Coil and a gift card.
