Obama Care (Anti-Life, Tainted Remedy)

Legacy Death and Taxes Enchantment Lifegain W/B (Orzhov)




This deck is centered around Tainted Remedy along with steady pain and gain. You can use the lifegain to your benefit and hurt your opponent.

Lifegain Mechanisms

Rest for the Weary, 2CMC for 4 life and 8 with Landfall. Life Burst , also 2CMC for 4 life, but has a potential for 16 life if the other 3 are in the graveyard.

Pain and Gain

Suture Priest and Blood Artist have great synergy. Every time a creature dies, I gain life. Every time a creature comes into play under my control I gain life, and under my opponents control they lose life. I combo Fallen Ideal by sacrificing Gravecrawler often to trigger Suture Priest and Blood Artist multiple times in a turn.Tainted Remedy makes Alms Beast useful finally. False Cure , doubles the pain whenever my opponents gain life. If I were to cast Rest for the Weary on turn 4 with landfall activated, they gain 8 which turns into 16 damage for only 4 CMC!!!

Late Game Punishment

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled combo with Maralen of the Mornsong.

Unorthodox Tutor

Dimir Machinations to tutor for Buried Alive, Tainted Remedy, Fallen Ideal, or Maralen of the Mornsong.As always, I'm looking for suggestions for improvement. Please give me a +1 if you like!


Updates Add

Alright, first big change. I have decided to remove Maralen of the Mornsong, Ob Nixillis, Unshackled, Alms Beast, and False Cure. I have swapped in 4x Nantuko Husk for added zombie recursion chance with Gravecrawler and another sacrifice trigger with added damage. I also added 4x Killing Wave to help clear the board. I can sac my Gravecrawler and pay life for my other creatures which I should get most of it back via Blood Artist and Suture Priest. 2x Dictate of Erebos to make sure the board stays clear. I also took out one swamp and one plains, swapping in 2x Mutavault for flexibility on Gravecrawler recursion.
