Lich's Mirror


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.

They get destroyed, but after Lich's Mirror kicks in.

No Mercy triggers when the creatures deal damage to you. Right before the No Mercy triggers are put onto the stack, the game checks state-based-actions and sees you have 0 or less life, which means you're supposed to lose the game. Instead of that happening, the replacement effect of Lich's Mirror takes over and does its thing. The triggers from No Mercy still exist, and they'll still be put onto the stack even though it left the battlefield.

@GearNoir: This isn't a situation where ordering triggered abilities would matter. Lich's Mirror doesn't have any triggered abilities.

Say my opponent attacks me with all of his creatures. I have a Lich's Mirror and a No Mercy. Do his creatures get destroyed before Lich's Mirror kicks in?

I'm a big advocate for Mind Over Matter+Temple Bell/Arcanis the Omnipotent+Laboratory Maniac. I don't use Laboratory Maniac in my main deck,Nekusar, but Mind Over Matter works real well with my artifacts and I'm sure it'll work for you. Since you're running black may I recommend Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond? Sensei's Divining Top will be good for predicting your next few turns and Darksteel Forge will kepp your board state in your favour, put Phylactery Lich in there for a constant 5 attack until it's counter is removed. Lifeline can keep your creatures returning allowing you to block at your leisure and Lich's Mirror can save you in a pinch.

Since you have 63 cards, lets take out 4 and add one. Lich's Mirror is a nice reset, however, while your life is now 20 and your hand is now full, you have no lands, no chance at a mulligan, and no blockers to start out. Sure, the flavor is on point, but your opponent is already in full swing. I would take it out.

Also, Altar of the Brood is fantastic for milling the opponent, however with a graveyard-focused zombie deck, you want to have some self-mill too. I would add in one Mesmeric Orb to fill your graveyard and your opponent's. Hope this helps!

Yeah Lich's Mirror is good but you have no permenents when you start up again, while your opponent is already in full swing. Maybe Vampiric Link?

Ohhh man! Exquisite Blood would be perfect! Maybe someone will give me some for free!

I have never seen Lich's Mirror before.... I can't believe it's Modern legal, looks like it would be banned. That would be sweet though, I might do it.

Vampire Nighthawk is badass in all kinds of ways!

Exquisite Blood seems on flavor for life gain, and Nighthawk's deathtouch is fantastic with the first strike given by Stromkirk Captain. Kalastria Highborn is nice, but personally I would let your spells take care of keeping you alive while your creatures bash face. Maybe Lich's Mirror as an alternate to lifegain?

Cool!! I would add in Platinum Angel and/or Lich's Mirror to take advantage on the Madcap experiment. +1
