Its hard to make good suggestions without seeing a deck list but some possible cards to consider: Angelic Chorus, Ivory Tower, Luminescent Rain, Selvala, Explorer Returned, Fracturing Gust, Fumigate, Venser's Journal

Hmm, Perhaps Ivory Tower seeing as you're probably gonna have unholy amounts of cards in hand at all times

sylvannos the only way you'll gain more life from Ivory Tower than what you spent to use Necropotence is if you have multiple Ivory Tower out. at most, each Ivory Tower gives you 3 life. you'll have 7 cards at best during your upkeep, minus 4 is 3.

The traditional combo with Necropotence is Ivory Tower. 4 of each plus 4 Necropotence means you can draw back up to 7 each turn and actually gain life from it. It's also pretty brutal when played with Reliquary Tower.

For your initial question though, Whip of Erebos hands-down. It makes those Desecration Demons and Phyrexian Obliterators even more obnoxious for your opponent to deal with.

The journal is cool in a more lifegain focused deck, but in this it's just too overcosted even with the handsize thing. Trinket Mage can act as a second copy of Ivory Tower if i need it to.

Another card to think about, that is similar to Ivory Tower is Venser's Journal. Increase mana cost, bust also an increase in life gain.

Yep, i have two opponents: one have a red dragon/burn with the biggest threats be the likes of Ball Lightning, Thundermaw Hellkite and Vexing Devil on turn one every single time lol. The other one has a green elves but i already beaten him easily with some mass removal like Infest.

I've got one Tragic Slip, but i think it's a lot situational, since if it is the only spot removal in my hand i'll be in trouble with a mere -1/-1. I've 4xVictim of Night sideboarded and well, i think i must try first and see if the Fatal Pushes can be good or replace them.

I've got even 2xSurgical Extraction sideboarded and i find it really useful... but i'm afraid to find it when i would need better a discard. Even this i must try first!

So if you agree that 4xVampiric Link is better than 2xVampiric Link+2xIvory Tower, i'll change them!

Thanks bro!
