Lich's Mirror Discussion

thehat on EPIC TROLLING with Lich's Mirror

1 week ago

Hey Logician! Long time. Still love this deck. New card to mess with for this build and maybe others:

Fractured Identity

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.)

Replaced Arcum's Whistle which sounded fun with the much more practical for EDH burn Lich's Mirror

Replicate is a choice you make while casting the spell. You can only replicate during the casting process.

Once you've cast the spell, replicate generates a triggered ability that copies the spell for however many times you paid its replicate cost.

As your life total hits 0, Lich's Mirror's replacement effect (note that it's not a triggered ability; it has to apply as state-based actions would cause you to lose the game) kicks in and you go back to 20 life, among other things.

However, because you already cast Gut Shot, you can't continue to replicate it once you gain your life back. The copies on the stack will resolve, but that's all you'll get until you start casting new Gut Shots.

This is what I have that I decided on so far:


2 x Island

2 x Mountain

2 x Swamp

2 x Polluted Delta

1 x Steam Vents

1 x Sulfur Falls

2 x Dragonskull Summit

1 x Crumbling Necropolis

1 x Crypt of the Eternals

2 x Bloodstained Mire

2 x Blood Crypt

2 x Drowned Catacomb

2 x Watery Grave

Any comments? I sorta feel like it might be a bit hard-hitting to my life total but I am playing control... my one concern being burn match-ups. I still feel that'll be alright, though, since I run Lich's Mirror on the sideboard.

Never thought of Phyrexian Unlife, it can be fun.
Lich's Mirror would only delay the inevitable for one turn...
Thanks for the suggestion.

I've been thinking about Sword of the Meek + Thopter Foundry. I didn't put it yet because i don't have a Sword of the Meek and without the foundry it's pretty useless (same as Pili-Pala without Grand Architect). As for Thopter Assembly i lack Time Sieve...
I've been wanting more tutors like Enlightened Tutor, Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor but they're a bit expensive.
Thanks for the tips!

Yes, i agree with you. I should put more board wipes since i don't need many creatures to play. What do you think about Fumigate?
About the counters, i've been avoiding them until now because my friends always complain about counterspells. What do you think about Foil instead of Pact of Negation? Sure, it's not as strong as the pact, but i have one! :D

Phyrexian Unlife for that survivability? Or a Lich's Mirror? Either works kinda well with the theme.

I made a 5 color deck that did this exact thing two or three years ago before I found tappedout and then tore it apart for the inconsistency of 5 colors and needing to get all those combo pieces. I mean, now you have Exquisite Archangel and card:Gideon of the Trials. +1 nonetheless as I honestly am glad to experience some sort of nostalgia that actually works! I playtested it twice, but never used the general or any of the swing dudes, ie Geist of Saint Traft. Any reason why you chose him?

Lastly, I would like to suggest at least a Sol Ring. Playtesting without any mana rocks felt extremely weird (but that may just be me). Selective Memory might be a cool deal to cut all the cards you don't "need", especially if you die and have Lich's Mirror on field. Curse of Exhaustion might be a tech card based on meta. I play against a lot of combo decks and can sometimes lose to them before I'm even set up. I've found Curse to be a great way to slow down the one person who is the most trouble.

Again +1
