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
6 days ago
Sorry for the late reply t3hdarkness. I totally love the suggestions! I will definitely need to change out some cards, like Reciprocate, Lich's Mirror, Jester's Cap and Shared Triumph. Thanks for the land suggestions too! I didn't really have a good place to start until you suggested Emeria, The Sky Ruin and Buried Ruin.

Lich's Mirror just feels awful here. In a lifegain deck, if you lose to damage, that extra 20 life isn't likely to help you when you no longer have any permanents. Especially if the reason you lost was due to commander damage...
Also, this deck seems suuper vulnerable to disruption of any kind. Since your wincon is almost exclusively Felidar Sovereign, I would recommend Vedalken Orrery to flash it in on your opponent's end step to minimize the chances of it getting shot down. In the event it gets shot down anyway, something like Elixir of Immortality to shuffle it back would be a good idea.

Lol, I am brewing a 4 color deck with Kynaios and Tiro that is basically The Great Aurora tribal.

WOW, thanks for the really quality post!
I got to say I like your deck you have made, and your post has made me really think long and hard about the recommendations you have given me. So here are my thoughts on all of them.
Relic of Progenitus you are correct about it not being perfect, but it never really caused problems as I would just pull off a donation before triggering the ability, however the first effect on it helped a little with the exile 1. But all in all the main reason I was keeping it in was its draw effect, and as Nihil Spellbomb also has draw I am totally down to add it and see how it plays out at my next FNM.
Terminate and Go for the Throat as stated are mainly here to remove the Abyssal Persecutor, but I cant see me taking them out or changing it to Greater Gargadon for the simple fact of the kill gives me way more survivability. I find that I have enough donation in the deck that I rarely need to use them on Abyssal Persecutor and instead I use it as a kill to take out my opponents shenanigans. So I will not be adding Greater Gargadon but I do have to say I really like that combo and would have never see using it like that, such a good idea though.
Sign in Blood is something I was looking at, however the deck is already tight fitting in all the cards I need for my combos aswell as the cards that let me live long enough to pull off a win. And so there is just no room for Sign in Blood, and as for Street Wraith mostly the same reasoning as Sign in Blood but also it does not really fit the theam and idea of a donation deck.
As for more Fetchlands, I really want to... but that shit is expensive yo, and I am already way over budget for what I wanted to spend on this deck. (100$ was how much I was originally looking to spend, to give you an idea for how over budget this has gotten... but I do have to admit it has been really fun to play.)
Also this deck list is a little out dated after Juppe recommendations I have actually created a V3 of this deck witch I played last night at my local FNM, but after your recommendations I have created a V4 of the deck witch I hope to play next week.
Here is the links as well as the changes between each version.
Deck link: Modern Donations? (v3)
Changes from V2 to V3 Show
Minus - 2x Lich's Mirror: Too slow to get out and self board wiping sucked.
Minus - 2x Death's Shadow: Honestly really missed them, and so brought them back in V4
Plus - 3x Lightning Bolt: Grate addition and feels really nice, made wins come a turn sooner.

Damn another long ass reply, well hopefully I did not ramble too much and got my point across, if you have any other ideas or recommendations feel free to place a comment and I will get back to you... also I will try and remember next Friday after FNM to make a comment and tell you how the Nihil Spellbomb play out.

Go for the Throat and Terminate are split like that because in my play group Surgical Extraction is played in 8/10 decks. because of that I don't want to lose all my kill, so I keep it split. I am running the Victim of Night Sideboard to bring in and replace the Go for the Throat when affinity comes up.
Will-o'-the-Wisp I do fully admit is a strange card, but I need some form of blocker early, cause I don't want to have to chump with the Bazaar Trader. If you have a recommendation for another 1 drop blocker with flying that is better I am happy to switch out.
Death's Shadow I did address in the description that it is a little bit of an off card in the deck. but I explained it there that "As you don't normally worry about your life total too much you are usually in a position to play Death's Shadow to slow down, or stop an opponents attacks on you. As well as if you pull off a donation with Abyssal Persecutor and your own life total is in the negatives you can get the full value of a 1 drop 13/13 to fight back with." So at this time I still stand by having them in.
Honestly really solid suggestions and I may do a little experimenting in the near future with adding some Lightning Bolt and more Mind Stone. But taking out the Death's Shadow and Will-o'-the-Wisp leaving me with only 8 creatures I would start suffering to more of the aggro decks.

Hi Daedalus19876, First time commenter and relatively new to edh. I'm making a Locust God deck similar to yours, albeit on a significantly smaller budget, and I stumbled across Lich's Mirror as a possible "reset" when using Kindred Discovery without Laboratory Maniac on the board.
I don't know that it's the best case scenario but it's better than decking yourself because someone kills of Lab Maniac in the middle of all the token spawn / draw combo.
Just thought I'd pass it along!

So I want to make another immortality deck and I was thinking of putting tribal gideon into the mix for Gideon of the Trials. Especially with the new rulings on planeswalkers. My thoughts were putting in the following cards:
Exquisite Archangel Lich's Mirror Platinum Angel Transcendence Platinum Emperion Worship Resolute Archangel Solitary Confinement so its kinda like the lich deck I have but I was thinking about making it mono white with Kytheon, Hero of Akros at the helm to keep the gideon emblem in affect.
Real question is, what should the other 90 cards be? What tactic would you run in mono white to try and become immortal? Or should I splash in and put some combos like Teferi's Protection/Render Silent + Elite Arcanist and Silence/Orim's Chant + Isochron Scepter then shove Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir. Then counterspell for a good amount of the rest.
Need some ideas on how to be the best jerk that no one wants to play with lol

Hey Logician! Long time. Still love this deck. New card to mess with for this build and maybe others:
Coupled with Lich's Mirror, Avarice Totem, and a boat-load or mana you can skip the having to sac/destroy (as it exiles) your own Mirror step and use a 'kill everyone' effect instead of conceding if you want.
Progression would be:
Totem, Mirror, Fractured Identity, Stack exchange triggers on Totem to give the Totems to different players and then retain totem. (IE Target totem and Mirror 1, retain priority, Target totem and Mirror 2, retain priority, Target totem and Mirror 1 again, etc.)
