Lifelink Discussion

I copied your Thalia's Legion deck and have been having a bit of fun modifying it. I played the Blessed vs Cursed Duel Deck with some mates the other day for the lols, and the Blessed deck has a strong Human component. One of the included artifacts was Butcher's Cleaver which I thought may be kinda cool for Human-tribal. More expensive than Lifelink/Spirit Link but can be passed around.

Take out Lifelink

You have the right idea, and for the right reasons. In your example with Spirit Loop the triggered ability of the Loop doesn't exist at the time it would trigger, so it doesn't trigger. In your example with Lifelink the game would indeed use LKI and see that the object dealing the damage had lifelink.

If I have a Boros Reckoner enchanted with Spirit Loop and he takes 4 damage. He dies and Boros Reckoner deals 4 damage to target creature or player goes on the stack. When that resolves it checks Boros Reckoners "Last Known Information" as it deals damage.

Does Spirit Loops trigger "whenever enchanted creature deals damage, you gain that much life" count as "Last Known Information?

I don't think it does because Spirit Loops trigger comes from Spirit Loop and does not grant anything to the creature. I know if it were enchanted with Lifelink you would gain the life, but in that case Lifelink is granting an ability to the creature.

Any clarification would be very helpful

ThePavlova - Oh, that makes sense. I was wondering what was so great about Spirit Link the other day. That's a pretty good card. I just took Lifelink off the mainboard but I'll maybeboard Spirit Link in case I decide to switch back.

RadeonFuryNano - I'm always down for defense cards. I don't want to remove Riot Control for that reason. It's been one of my more useful modes of defense in past games. I'm always down for good control cards as well but Path to Exile is a bit out of my price range. But please let me know if you think of anything else! I really don't want to lose Ajani's Pridemate since he's become one of my alternate wincons in lieu of owning some Chalice of Life  Flips. I like the idea of buffing Ajani's Pridemate with Abzan Falconer and Abzan Battle Priest as well, which is why I put them on the mainboard.

I changed things up a lot today so I'm not sure how messed up this deck is anymore. I'll have to play it and see where it's most weak. Feel free to keep the great suggestions coming in the meantime. Thanks for all the good stuff so far!

I'd pick Spirit Link over Lifelink. Pretty sure its effect triggers on cards that already have lifelink and you can put it on an opponents creature to gain the life from its attacks as it doesn't go to the controller like lifelink does.

vampire is great with r/b/w, it allows you to use cards like Olivia_Voldaren and sorin in the same deck, also, white opens you up to using cards such as Lifelink, which just makes sense in a vampire deck.

Thanks for the help, i think we are almost there but I am still a little unclear.
Let's say Crypt Rats has Lifelink and I activate crypt rats ability once, and respond, and activate the ability again, the second time. That's it.
The second activation resolves, i have one life-gain event, and crypt rats dies. Then the first activation resolves, and deals one damage to every target. Do i get a second lifegain event?
