Phyrexian Unlife


You don't lose the game for having 0 or less life.

As long as your life total is 0 or less, all damage is dealt to you as though its source had infect. (Damage is dealt in the form of poison counters.)

notable upgrades to the deck could be:

Phyrexian Unlife and Decree of Silence , as they both have amazing synergy with Solemnity . With either of those two out, you either have pseudo-immortality OR counter everybody's spells.

Solemnity does not make creatures with persist "indestructible". i would change that line because it is misleading. i would also recommend taking out Phyrexian Unlife . opponents will be blowing up Solemnity on sight which ruins the combo. it can easily be replaced with Good-Fortune Unicorn which serves the exact same purpose as Solemnity / Melira, Sylvok Outcast . Serum Visions and Opt should be traded for Path to Exile and Altar of Dementia . you need removal, and the cantrips aren't needed when you already have several different combinations of cards that result in infinite combos

I am generally interested with persists viability in modern given we have access to cards like Solemnity , Phyrexian Unlife , Blasting Station , and the upcoming print of Altar of Dementia .

I have constructed a deck a few weeks back which consistently top 8' at my lgs, but nonetheless would like feedback on this concept. Thanks!!

I just read Rulings for Phyrexian Unlife and it says ifs you take damage while you have life to below Zero like, 3 life takes 5 damage, -2 life. lichs says exile 2 cards then it replaces the damage with poison after the fact. Then you gain poison counters. I would assume you cant loose life when Unlife is on the board preventing exile effects of Lichs. Its certainly interesting.

Phyrexian Arena is a strict upgrade to Dark Tutelage . Bitterblossom would be a nice addition as well since it's a win condition, makes blockers, crews Copter, and is consistent with the life loss theme. Have you considered playing Solemnity for the combo with Phyrexian Unlife ?

A few more changes:

I should probably cut Bitterblossom in favor of the Nevermore , but gotta at least make a few fairies first

OK, some changes made. A main deck Authority of the Consuls has grown on me - cut the main deck Threads of Disloyalty to make room for it.

Also pulled one of the Rest in Peace to the main deck, good thinking Silverdrake! Also cut the oppressive rays in favor of a second d sphere, and cut Athreos for the 4th Serum Visions . Made room in the sideboard for Counterbalance as well to test it out.

Not sure how good the Phyrexian Unlife will be in this deck, I might want Runed Halo in that slot instead.

Solemnity , Phyrexian Unlife , Decree of Silence . Suddenly your opponents can't play the game and you can't lose
