If you would lose the game, instead shuffle your hand, your graveyard, and all permanents you own into your library, then draw seven cards and your life total becomes 20.
Lich's Mirror Discussion
2 months ago
Notes from game on 09/08/2019:
- Bloodchief Ascension
- Exsanguinate - took out 3 players simultaneously
- Hex Parasite - OMG belongs in almost any black deck
- Lake of the Dead
- Overwhelming Forces
- Painful Quandary
- Phyrexian Obliterator
- Staff of the Death Magus
- Sword of Light and Shadow
Worth Considering for Removal:
- Arcane Lighthouse - unlikely to need / redundant with Detection Tower
- Lich's Mirror - I made a dumb mistake not paying enough attention to the win condition
- Maralen of the Mornsong (sigh) this was originally her deck
- Ob Nixilis, Unshackled - keep for at least one more round
- Platinum Emperion - belongs in another deck, redundant with Platinum Angel
- Soldevi Digger - very unlikely to need
- The Haunt of Hightower - I want to make this a better card than it really is, but I have to face it.

Hey thom-le, glad you like the deck!
Lich's Mirror is a card that I like but have never found any practical use for. Buffing back up to 20 life is nice, but starting again at zero permanents I've found I'm never able to do anything before I just die again. I don't like using Sol Ring very much, but regardless decent mana rocks are probably a good idea, I could cut some of the high-end fluff like Kothophed, Soul Hoarder which I've just never found myself in a decent position to play. Glacial Chasm is great here actually, thanks. For some reason I had it in my head that it was much more expensive than it actually is. Liliana of the Dark Realms I should probably make room for too, now that you mention it.
Thanks very much for the feedback!

Wow, I like your idea of this deck! Maybe consider Lich's Mirror or Glacial Chasm , also think of more mana rocks like Fellwar Stone , Sol Ring , Worn Powerstone or Wayfarer's Bauble to get your high CMC cards earlier into play. If you want to play a planeswalker Liliana of the Dark Realms is a good choice. But this is just my opinion, nevertheless your thoughts are great so far, I enjoyed reading your deck list!

So, trying to put together a soft lock together for Lich's Mastery .
Here's what I have so far:
Platinum Angel with Lightning Greaves + Darksteel Plate , Lich's Mastery , Enduring Renewal , Spore Frog , Phyrexian Metamorph (copying Spore Frog ), Clone (copying Spore Frog , or if you wanted to be cheeky, copying Phyrexian Metamorph copying Spore Frog ), and Lich's Mirror & in play, with ways to gain life in hand.
Am I missing something? In a 4-man pod I can't die here right?

Hey RedmundR2 thanks for the comment. I was looking to build a janky Lich's Mirror deck and wound up going Mono Tron. I actually deleted this and will need a new idea for a deck as Lich's Mirror is cool and all, but you start off at 20 life with 7 cards in hand and no board state. Meanwhile, your opponent is picking up right where they left off.

The cmc curve of this deck is always going to be quite high, I would recommend adding in some essential ramp spells and ways to cheat in your creatures. I'm assuming that the cards you will consider will be more on the budget side so here might be some cards you can consider. Selvala's Stampede, good way to be threat and able to cheat permanents from hand or flip into big dragons from the deck. Sunbird's Invocation, since you are reducing the spells of your dragon, the 'cascade' trigger will be large and unlikely you will whiff most of the time. Cream of the Crop a pseudo filtering where it synergizes with your big drops so you can fix your draws. Summoning Trap only would use if you face against a lot of counterspell decks. Nature's Lore, Farseek, Rampant Growth, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Hour of Promise, and Skyshroud Claim are great ramp spells that are better in the long run. If not all the signets and talismans for mana rocks to accelerate.
I would recommend cutting all the equipments as you don't need that when your dropping big threats already, Door to Nothingness, Doubling Cube, Lich's Mirror, Descent of the Dragons, Traitorous Blood, Gift of Paradise, Prodigious Growth, Command the Storm, Tail Slash, and Holy Day.
Hope that helps! If your not on budget there are other alternative options but the cards are $10+

Thanks for the suggestions!! My reasoning behind Skipping Plat. Angel is because it's fairly easily removed and is at the very top of my curve, around when I'd much rather be playing Phage herself. Necro is def going in here once I trade for a copy or just mosey on down to my LGS with spare cash. Lich's Mirror is a strange artifact, and it most definitely had some very interesting interactions, but for the time being I'm just using it as something I can use to get Phage outside of the command zone and (hopefully) be able to tutor her in. It's about as likely to happen as being able to use Dash Hopes to successfully get Phage outside of the command zone, lol.
