Divine Intervention


Divine Intervention enters the battlefield with two intervention counters on it.

At the beginning of your upkeep, remove an intervention counter from Divine Intervention.

When you remove the last intervention counter from Divine Intervention, the game is a draw.

If you have too much money and don't want friends, Divine Intervention + Opalescence + Suncleanser.

Likewise, if a player had an Abyssal Persecutor in play, the game would still be a draw - it only prevents somebody from winning - not drawing.

The only way you could use Divine Intervention to win a game is if you were playing in a multi-player game using the option Range of Influence rules, and you were the only player outside of that range of influence.

(eg. a four player game with a Range of Influence of 1, and the controller of Divine Intervention was sitting across from you. When they remove the last counter from DI, they, and the player to their right and left will all draw, and leave the game. As the only player left, you'll win by default. But that's DEEPLY weird.)

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?

You need to actually remove a counter for the trigger to start, so nothing will happen if you somehow have Divine Intervention with no counters, like the copy from Mirage Mirror . No counter removal means no trigger means the game continues.

Is it possible to Draw the game with Mirage Mirror if I activate its ability at the beginning of my upkeep and target Divine Intervention ?

Your hand size is increased by 3. If ~ has lifelink, you have no maximum hand size.

Whenever 1 or more other Angels you control deal combat damage to a player, you may pay life equal to the amount of Angels you control. If you do, draw that many cards.


I realize this can go in many decks, but there is one is particular this works much better in.

Make a card that ends the game in a draw (like Divine Intervention ).

The problem is Lich's Mirror is not a great card. It takes a lot of work to ensure everyone loses the game simultaneously--you can just as easily set up a combo where you win/everyone else loses, both of which do not require you to also have a Lich's Mirror on the field.

Outside of a potential victory from a total wipe, the card is fairly useless. You cannot easily recover from losing all your permanents, particularly since it does not harm everyone else's board. At best, you are buying yourself a few extra turns, but you are unlikely to pull victory from the ashes.

Also, this would not work with Divine Intervention - when you draw the game, you are not losing, so the replacement effect will not work.

All that said, I would find this quite amusing to see as a janky combo; it just is not going to be a particularly good one.
