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.

BerniB With the change in the ruling from HOU Death's Shadow is unable to get bigger than 13/13 from low life total.

107.1b If a calculation that would determine the result of an effect yields a negative number, zero is used instead, unless that effect sets a player’s life total to a specific value, doubles a player’s life total, or sets a creature’s power or toughness to a specific value.

I would say it's a fun way to play with Zur and I like the concept of playing like a Lich. For those specific cards however it is too slow, I would rather run either more card draw or tutors in place of them and have either one or two cards that are easily more accessible to cast or grab with Zur. Convalescent Care is just too slow, I get that it has synergy with Lich but there are other ways to get value than just waiting one turn.

Hey man I love the look of this deck it seems really interesting. With the new sets out would you switch Lich for Lich's Mastery to give it the additional Hexproof?

Lich's Mastery seems a lot better than Lich here.

Wow, seriously wow. I love the deck and you defenitly embrace the Rakdos playstyle ! I'm looking at your list and do you think the deck could be viable with a smaller budget ? I don't own a Lich but was thinking of Lich's Mastery - even if it doesn't work in the Doomsday package. Do you think it has it place ?

Amazing deck again ! I'm still mind blown

Boza - that will not result in a draw, but rather the active player winning the game. Lich creates a triggered ability. All the Liches will be destroyed, then the triggers will be put on the stack in APNAP order. Since the Active Player's is put on the stack first, it will be the last to resolve, which means all the remaining players would have lost the game already.

I'd also highly recommend against Epic + Hive Mind. It's not a fun interaction, and your friends will, justifiably, be angry that you're keeping them from playing their decks.

Additionally, you can run cards like Lich, copy it several times, Donate one to each player, then cast something like Reverent Silence.

I feel like Phyrexian Tribute is too strong in here. It is, after all, one of only two black cards that specifically can hit artifacts. Perhaps Lich would be good (bad)?

+1 for the concept.

This looks like a ball to play! It seems you're to the fine-tuning stage with all these awesome suggestions.

With as much card advantage as you have here, I agree that mass recursion could help you out. Something like Patriarch's Bidding is high CMC, but it also gets all your zombies back. Just watch it against other tribals.

You might have some fun with combos like Lich + Repay in Kind.
