Lich's Mirror Discussion

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

Tangle, Lich's Mirror, Akroma's Memorial, Bow of Nylea, Asceticism, Doubling Season, Exploration.

You want mana from elves really, so max out LLanowar Elves, add Elvish Mystic, add the combo which gives elves psudo haste, add some form of creature tutor.

There is an actual good competitive elves deck too.

Not too sure if this is really necessary, since you already have Dark Sphere, but throwing in a Lich's Mirror can't hurt.

dimmer winner dinner is a deck i built specifically for weird combo of exiling creatures to play them, funny to run across this list right after. Lost Legacy? Harmless Offering fits nicely with an Abyssal Persecutor. Lich's Mirror + Demonic Pact or Immortal Coil ? Phage the Untouchable. Transcendence! Harmless Offering + Midnight Oil + Vampire Hexmage. Spinal Parasite. Spellbook or Stitcher's Graft? I've always wanted to see what kinds of builds are possible with Neurok Transmuter. Is Isochron Scepter too popular/not wild enough for this?

Rhadamanthus on Does No Mercy trigger before ...

4 months ago

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.
