If noncombat damage would be dealt to you, prevent that damage. You gain life equal to the damage prevented this way.

When Purity is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

Great idea! Love the monks/religion theme.

Fasting, Asceticism, Quiet Purity, Purity, and Sphere of Purity would fit well.

Which can make a bit of a difference. If the controller of Purity was being targeted by an activation of Fallen Ferromancer they will now lose 1 life instead of gaining 1 poison counter. The other situation worth noting is what happens if the controller of Purity tries gaining life. They will instead lose that much life because of Rain of Gore and the interaction will stop there, because Purity is looking for damage, not loss of life, so it can't replace the new event.

BlueScope on Rain of Gore + Purity

Well, certainly not nothing. Rain of Gore doesn't care about anything until a player gains life, while Purity is much the same except it only cares about noncombat damage dealt to its controller.

If player A, who controls Purity, is dealt noncombat damage, its replacement effect will kick in and cause the ability to gain player A that much life instead. Now, Rain of Gore will interfere and cause player A to lose that much life instead. If you meant that they will end up at the same life total one way or the other, you're likely correct, but there are a lot of smaller differences that may or may not matter, for example that while originally, player A was dealt damage, now they now "only" lose life.

If an opponent tries to Grapeshot you, or win through with noncombat damage, you're in for a bad time. What about Purity in the sideboard to fight against decks that will try to win without creatures? Or Repel the Abominable as another fog that can stop noncreature or noncombat damage.

A small note, that shouldn't matter, but when Purity dies you choose the order the triggers go on the stack. If you want it shuffled into your library for whatever reason, it will already be in your library when your opponent decides whether or not to take the damage, making their decision easier. Shouldn't have a big impact, as I'm sure you'll typically want it in your hand though.

I think I know the answer but want to be sure. So I have 3 questions.

1) Can I use Liquimetal Coating to make a Scornful Egotist an artifact creature so Pia's Revolution could return it to my hand?

2) Could I use Liquimetal Coating to make a Purity an artifact creature so Pia's Revolution could return it to my hand? Since I control both effects can I choose the order to force Purity to my hand?

3) How does Pia's Revolution and Credit Voucher work? Does the Credit Voucher return to my hand AFTER I have fulfilled the effect? Or does it happen earlier so I can "cycle" it?

Thanks for helping!
