If an opponent would gain life, that player loses that much life instead.

with Kenrith there is a card that is not a win con but acts like one with him in play it is. but that is up to you i know that you want as many alt-win cons as you can. but a fun idea as well is Tainted Remedy. The best way to set it up is to use ether Training Grounds Heartstone or Biomancer's Familiar. then you need to have Composite Golem ether in the graveyard or in play and you will have infinite mana of every color but black by just reanimate him with kenrith and do it over and over and then with any card with a death trigger that pings for 1 or you give any player five life with tainted remedy out it will kill them by draining 5 life from them and not you. as well ask help with other stuff. overall you if have any question about anything just ask i may not have explained it very well. i love the deck and am staring to put and alt-win con deck together as well +1 from me and keep up the good work love it

I have three questions regarding this card: Wall of Shards
1.) I have Wall of Shards and an Everlasting Torment on the battlefield. Because my opponents are unable to gain life would I be unable to pay for Wall of Shards 's cumulative upkeep cost and be forced to sacrifice it? (I know this has been asked if it works with Tainted Remedy , but is "Players can't gain life" also a replacement effect or something else?)
2.) I have Wall of Shards on the battlefield and my opponent has Aegis of the Gods on the battlefield. Wall of Shards never specifies targeting an opponent when paying for the cumulative upkeep cost. Can I make the opponent who controls Aegis of the Gods gain life?
3.) I have Wall of Shards on the battlefield and two opponents. Upon upkeep I put a second age counter on Wall of Shards and pay it's cumulative upkeep. Can I pay the cost by making both my opponents gain 1 life each? If so do both opponents gain life at the same time or must I choose priority? And if there is priority can I cast spells between each instance of life gain such as recurring and casting a single Punishing Fire from the graveyard multiple times?

LOL. I've definitely made my share of mental errors. Drift of Phantasms is here, and while not 1CMC, it does get the job done when it's really needed. And of course there are other options like Mastermind's Acquisition . I think Liquidbeaver's approach here tries to take advantage of Tainted Remedy as much as possible without actually needing it, which is a pretty solid strategy when building around any single spell.
