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.)

Phyrexian Unlife Discussion

Ziembski on Gwafa Hazid, Maximum Profit

How about War Tax? Its somehow better than Propaganda in late game.

Now sure why you want to run Solemnity in Hazid deck since it just stop his ability. But if you really want to run it, be sure to add Force Bubble to stop all damage dealt to you. Also, it makes you not able to get poison counters, so Phyrexian Unlife does the same. Dont forget Delaying Shield.

Oh, duh, Dromoka's Command is great against burn plus, with some of those new Solemnity + Phyrexian Unlife decks popping up, having enchantment removal in the board that grows your cats is added bonus.

Gaddock Teeg is great against Tron and Scapeshift. Yeah it turns of CoCo, but I'd rather loose CoCo than lose the game in those matches.

I love Solemnity xD

I have a friend who likes angels so I was going to build Solemnity Angels (Sigil of the Empty Throne), but instead made Angel Sisters (Angelic Accord).

I will check out your Solemnity Deck, it better not just be Solemnity and Phyrexian Unlife, or I will be a bit disappointed.


Also Aether Vial and Power Conduit is a real thing. Think things that you don't want counters on Thing in the Ice or Dark Depths as examples. It is weird, but that is what a combo is, right?

I would also like to add that Solemnity combos nicely with Phyrexian Unlife.

taural on Ideally this Modern Deck Would be Epic

I have Solemnity in the sideboard and had considered it mainboard for the interaction with Phyrexian Unlife, I'm just weighing it up against removing Luminarch Ascension as it prevents the quest counters.

I'm a little nervous dropping to one win-condition (Form of the Dragon) against Surgical Extraction etc and other win conditions I've considered (Heliod, God of the Sun and Assemble the Legion) tend to not get through blockers.

Perhaps though game 1 is better suited to Phyrexian Unlife + Solemnity with the option to board in Luminarch Ascension or a second Form of the Dragon as the risk of losing all copies permanently is low enough.

Thanks for the suggestion.

escesare on Hub requests: Toolbox, Lockdown

6 days ago

I see you want to be conservative with new hubs, which is perfectly valid, but I think the ship has sort've sailed. By your logic, all the 20ish tribe hubs should be removed because we already have Tribal. Locks and Stax are much further apart than existing hubs like Stax and Pox. Consider a deck that tries to assemble Energy Field + Rest in Peace to prevent all damage, Solemnity + Phyrexian Unlife to prevent all life loss, or Enduring Ideal. These are so far away from Stax, it's like calling Midrange Aggro. I do like the idea of being frugal with hubs, but that means we should first remove all the extra ones before denying Lock.

I still think we're missing the point with toolbox. Again, a good toolbox deck should probably be utilizing combos or some synergies (as you pointed out), but what if the deck utilizes toolbox for hate cards and nothing else? How do you label that?

Regardless, it makes no sense to exclude Toolbox just because the decks fit under Combo; decks can be multiple hubs. By your logic, we should remove all the hubs except Aggro, Control, Combo, Ramp, Midrange because all other decks fall under those. I think you're being a little too frugal there ;)

IRNMN on Solemnity Unlife

Cool deck! Considering you have 3 Idyllic Tutor, I would recommend throwing in 1 or 2 main deck removal enchantments (i.e. Oblivion Ring effects)as alternatives to grab either when you have a threat that must be dealt with, or when you already have Solemnity/Phyrexian Unlife out and you don't have the need to tutor for more. Maybe consider those instead of the Paths or drop to 1 Path & 2 Inquisition instead of 2 & 3 respectively?
