As Lich enters the battlefield, you lose life equal to your life total.

You don't lose the game for having 0 or less life.

If you would gain life, draw that many cards instead.

Whenever you're dealt damage, sacrifice that many nontoken permanents. If you can't, you lose the game.

When Lich is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, you lose the game.

RazortoothMtg on Loser (WIP)

So I see you have Harmless Offering and Donate and a few of the good targets for them, but what about the O.G Lich, Forbidden Crypt, Immortal Coil, or Nefarious Lich? The lich's are probably a bit hard on the manabase, but Coil is easy to kill people with: 1 Bojuka Bog or Tormod's Crypt suddenly turns into Door to Nothingness.

For additional loss spells, Death Wish does literally nothing in commander except lose half your life. Seems decent.

Also, Nivmagus Elemental and Platinum Angel are good ways to stop your own copies of these bad spells if you find them necessary.

Too bad you aren't in White or Transcendence and Fractured Identity + Phage the Untouchable would be perfect.

Anyway, cool deck! Didn't have time to really look at everything, but thought I'd throw some suggestions at you.

@Megalomania: Maybe you could answer these questions? Thanks in advance:

  1. Is Serra's Sanctum nessecary here? Just asking to be sure; considering I have an. Combo now.

  2. I'd really also want a Hatebear & Lockdown subthemes; or do I already have that here?

  3. Is Lich useful? As I drop to 0 life, and use Aminatou's Ultimate to switch the board, I automatically lose, so, no?

  4. I actually wanted a theme in which the deck basically decides the fate for all players. How's that going?

I hope someone answers at some point please...

3 Questions: is Serra's Sanctum really Necessary? & how can this deck do more than Stax; such as in this case, Hatebears, & Lockdown? & How useful is Lich here if your life drops to 0 automatically before Ultimating Aminatou?

After my ambition to make a cEDH Aminatou deck regarding Lockdown Elements, I already know several things:

  1. I must already have a Graveyard to use.

  2. I currently dunno her potential Tier on the list.

  3. Not sure if I can get to < CMC2...

  4. How the crud can I increase her Loyalty higher?

If anyone wants to help, let me know. At this point, a Planeswalker Commander w/ Insta-Lose potential for the opponent Just by the opponent getting a key card in the combo. I didn't start making this deck w/ the idea of Topdecking in mind, plus, I added Sphere of Safety in case someone runs Boros, & overruns my strategy, & I don't have a Fog.

Hope this helps. Also, is Lich useful here? Just asking...

@Megalomania: Yep. I do get my stuff back, but Personal Sanctuary is useless against non-Damage Lifeloss. The Nauseam is canned. But how good is Lich & Nefarious Lich here?

Actually, I won't get my life back after switching Lich to someone else. It gets cut. I wonder what else for win cons to get...

@Khirgan: 0_o'

Damn those are awesome stuff, but how do I go and afford Lich in addition, as well as make these cEDH viable?


Also, Would Nefarious Lich be a decent alt.? And wouldn't this mean I lose all my cards I built my strategem for? Just wondering as I like a kickbutt Wincon.

Grindig opponents out in a Group Hug fashion and preventing decks from doing anything feasible are the miserable ways this deck wins by.

If there is a need for it, Muldrotha’s still a 6/6 that can beat down but I’m open to suggestion if you think there are any enchantment based wins?

Lich and Second Chance offer an out of infinite turns into doing what we’d like.

If need be, there could be room for the infinite Gitrog combo, using Faith of the Devoted as an outlet.

Loonmoon18 on Negative life?

2 months ago

cdkime and FancyTuesday, I see. It's more of to dig yourself out of the hole later with life gain. Also, if you play Lich how does that work? Lich's Oracle text says you lose life equal to your life total. Say if you're at -6, since it's a double negative would you go to 0?
