Angel's Grace

Angel's Grace


Split second (As long as this spell is on the stack, players can't cast spells or activated abilities that aren't mana abilities.)

You can't lose the game this turn and your opponents can't win the game this turn. Until end of turn, damage that would reduce your life total to less than 1 reduces it to 1 instead.

Why would you assume an infinite damage combo wouldn't be able to kill anyone? All of the sadomasochists can redirect damage to an opp's face. Only issue is getting shut down by Angel's Grace and the likes, and at that point the draw is on the opponent.

One more thing! Since you already have Angel's Grace in the deck, might as well throw Ad Nauseam in there!

Lightning Helix would probably be better over Incinerate or Guerrilla Tactics. Might move the Incinerates/Tactics to the sideboard in case you run into regeneration creatures or hand disruption. While it's a cool survival tactic, you might not see a Wall of Hope to run Prismatic Strands with and you've only got the 4 creatures. I think the reversal cards are fun, but at a certain point it's better to just kill the opponent than live longer so Life Burst is another option to swap out rather than the Incinerates. You're also running a bunch of low cost instants, but have no way of refilling your hand. White struggles with that outside of EDH (which is why its game plan is on stalling or tax) but red has tons of options to refill the hand in Legacy.

But if you're intent on running so much lifegain Felidar Sovereign or Test of Endurance might be an alternate wincon for you but if Storm and spellslinging is of greater interest to you, you might consider Angel's Grace and Near-Death Experience over all the lifegain. If just being an annoying opponent to face in Red/White is the goal, keep the protection cards and instead slap in some Gideon of the Trials in there.

Draws don't result in everybody losing, they result (pretty straightforwardly) in a draw. Nobody wins, nobody loses. Platinum Angel and Angel's Grace don't prevent a forced draw.

If, say, someone drops a massive Earthquake that drops everyone to 0 life simultaneously while you have Platinum Angel out, you would not lose the game for having 0 life, while everyone else would lose the next time state-based actions are checked. As the only non-loser, you would win.

Since ending the game in a draw means everyone loses, would I be able to play Angel's Grace or have Platinum Angel on the field when something like Divine Intervention 's last counter is removed by something like Clockspinning or AEther Snap and win?

Definitely stay away from both hexdrinker and pact. Pact is much better in combo decks to protect their combos where they expect to either win before they need to pay the cost or they are going to do something with Angel's Grace to prevent themselves from losing the game like in ad naus. Since you are almost always going to have to pay the cost, it's basically just a 5 mana cancel which sucks.

Hexdrinker is much more at home in a midrange deck. You correctly identified the main problem with having it in a control deck, which is that the level up ability can only be activated during your main phases. If you add it as a 1-of you are probably going to be wishing for a different spell every time you draw it.

About the manabase, I assume budget isn't an issue for you if you have 4 misty rainforests. I'd cut the fabled passages and a few of the filter lands for some blue-something fetch lands.

Thank you again! I actually don't want to do much sacrificing in this deck, and while it has some tokens, I still want it to mostly focus on bats. Tempted to make a second Lich deck though (probably not soon, but eventually!), it's one of my favourite cards and there are so many ways to play around it.

Angel's Grace would definitely a great add to this deck though! Btw I did listen to your first suggestion and included Darien, King of Kjeldor with an order earlier so thank you once more for that. :) He's definitely way too good to not have with Lich.

You're welcome. I have some more ideas for you:

Krav, the Unredeemed and Regna, the Redeemer might sctually be a great commander pair for the list. They do a lot you want to do: Draw cards, gain life, sacrifice creatures, create tokens. Also, Beacon of Immortality would be great with mastery. Finally: Angel's Grace can really safe you day.
