I got it.

Lich's Mirror + Hive Mind + Last Chance OR Final Fortune

Personally though, you could substitute Lich's Mirror for Angel's Grace and still win that way too.

Which is basically a convoluted win-more combo piece, in the end. I'm of the opinion that Lich's Mirror is a style card you play to impress the table with, not a card to win as many games with as you can.

FormOverFunction : I'm afraid there's no way to make that work, the Tokens will stop existing any moment state based actions are checked, which means pretty much every moment between spells and abilities resolving on the stack. The moment the Mirror's trigger is done resolving and before the Battle of Wits trigger of winning the game will resolve, the Tokens will already have disappeared, way before the moment Battle of Wits can check how many cards are in your deck.

Because drawing the game with Molten Vortex and Harmless Offering, handing out your Lich's Mirror seems hilarious, which is something Platinum Angel won't be able to do.

(If you're dealt lethal damage with Lich's Mirror under your control, but you don't own it, it won't shuffle itself back in. Molten Vortex will prevent your life total from being raised to 20, so when state based actions are checked, you will lose again and the mirror will trigger again, and again, and again, making this an infinite loop that keeps itself going, and therefore draws the game)

Lich's Mirror seems to be either an unnecessary win-more card or a very bad card to try to keep from losing a game with.

For example; Doing something that makes everyone lose but you because of the mirror. Why not just use something that makes all opponents lose instead?
Or using it as a version of Platinum Angel but instead of keeping your board state, you sacrifice your board state. Why not just replace the mirror with the Platinum Angel?

So I COULD see potential for Lich's Mirror in something like my Nekusar deck. Infinite mill is not the goal of the deck, but there are one or two infinite combos that would result in a win this way. However, there are times where I would draw out before my opponents would, or they have way too much life to be killed by the ping damage, or they have one of the old Eldrazi Titans in their deck and I cannot get them through mill alone but need more cards than I can afford to ping the to death. Lich's Mirror would enable me to stack as many triggers as I would need to secure a win where I would lose as well. The only problem would be when Lich's Mirror triggers and Nekusar goes to the command zone, the ping damage stops.

That confused the shit our of me.

Over night I thought that a good place for this card is in a Neheb, the Eternal deck. Usually in neheb decks they try to win with a big X spell like idk how about Fault Line but if you are not ahead in life then this will not work. But with Lich's Mirror it does. You can put X at 99,000 and kill yourself too. But not die, because lich's mirror. Then you win

Convulted combo:

Control Mirror Gallery and Lich's Mastery. Turn Mastery into a creature, then play kicked Rite of Replication targeting Mastery. Then donate one copy to each opponent using Bazaar Trader with Freed from the Real. Cast Lich's Mirror and then cast something to destroy all enchantments at once.

You might need infinite mana for this btw...
