Lich's Mastery

Legendary Enchantment


You can't lose the game.

Whenever you gain life, draw that many cards.

Whenever you lose life, for each 1 life you lost, exile a permanent you control or a card from your hand or graveyard.

When Lich's Mastery leaves the battlefield, you lose the game.

Lich's Mastery Discussion

At first glance I would suggest either Benthic Biomancer or Lich's Mastery . Mastery seems like too big a downside in commander (you get attacked for 20, you block 6, you just lost 14 permanents, cards from your hand, and/or cards from your graveyard). Benthic Biomancer on the other hand doesn't seem too synergistic with your deck, maybe some +1/+1 counter synergies with your commander but that's about the only card in the deck that does that.

Vilis has tons of great synergies imo though. I kind of feel like he's being underlooked at the moment. I think people are picking up on him, but for a little while you could scoop him up for $0.50.

Some of my favorite things with him are things like Psychosis Crawler or Horizon Chimera .

Also a big fan of how he interacts with Lich's Mastery .

He's a great card that can do a lot of crazy things imo.

I am a degenerate Black/Sultai mage. Everything is a resource. In no particular order:

Crucible of Worlds - The Grave is a resource. If I can't access my lands from my graveyard, I can't exploit my grave as a resource nearly as freely as I'd like.

Bottomless Pit - My graveyard is a resource. My opponents graveyards are resources. They must be filled. And not with the cherry-picked garbage that opponents in control of what they discard would choose.

Leyline of Anticipation - Time is a resource. This increases my windows of opportunity dramatically. A key card, and a personal favorite.

Future Sight - My library is a resource. To be able to see, and play, cards from the top of my library can be quite a boon. Especially in conjunction with so many other cards.

Squandered Resources - Resource manipulation. Need more lands in the grave? We got that. Need a few more mana than you have? We got that. Tap a land for mana. Sac that land to this. Re-play it with Crucible. Tap it again. Sac it again. 4 mana baby. Desperate times call for desperate measures, but he who finds himself in desperate times with no desperate measures to turn to? A dead man.

Unfulfilled Desires - Life is a resource. More manipulation. This one is hugely underrated imo. In any deck that exploits their graveyard, this card can just churn tons of hand-picked cards into your grave, with no risk of "milling" undesired cards.

Lich's Mastery - My life, my soul, a resource to be used. A risky play, but I've had this card just go off for me so many times. Turning all life gain into card draw is bonkers. Run it with a Soul Sister or two, an Aetherflux Reservoir , or the infamous Gary for some crazy draw power. Lich's Mastery + Vilis, Broker of Blood is quickly becoming a favorite interaction of mine. Lose life? Draw cards. Gain life? Draw cards. It's a "win-win", so to speak.

The controller of the Lich's Mastery at the time that it leaves the battlefield will lose the game. The owner of the card has no bearing.

If I somehow gift (let's say I used Zedruu the Greathearted to gift) Lich's Mastery to my opponent then I destroy all enchantments. They would lose right? Or would I lose because I own the card?

I'll definitely add Greven to Kresh the Bloodbraided . Will be a blast to play.

I can't decide yet what to do with K'rrik. He seems incredibly powerful and I'll definitely play him with Aetherflux Reservoir . I'm not yet sure about Lich's Mastery though. That would be a risky, but powerful plan.
