You don't lose the game for having 0 or less life.
As long as your life total is 0 or less, all damage is dealt to you as though its source had infect. (Damage is dealt in the form of poison counters.)

Cards to maybe consider for a more turtley style of play for Door to Nothingness Stupidity ;)

Wow this is, excuse the pun, some 4 month+ necro xD.
Tyrant-Thanatos I don't even think Vilis was out 6 months ago!
While I don't think Necrologia is great, it is a fine card.
That isn't to say that I am not a fan of it for budget reasons, but Ad Nauseam is stronger than it, considering no end-step issues, and the fact that with Angel's Grace / Phyrexian Unlife / Platinum Angel and many of the "Lich" effects, you can draw your whole deck with Ad Nauseam, since it is life loss, but because you can't pay life past 0, despite these effects, you can't do the same from Necrologia .

I think this deck is awesome. Cool too see Ajani's Mantra find a home somewhere.
I think you could cut Thalia's Lancers in the board and replace them with some other cards:
Just for the spice you should put Phyrexian Unlife in your sideboard (it combos with Solemnity if you didn't know) for people who won't be expecting it and don't side in enchantment removal.
Also Stony Silence is a must in your sideboard, especially with all the artifact BS going on in Modern right now.

considering Solemnity or Melira, Sylvok Outcast combos into infinite life with Phyrexian Unlife would you consider Greater Auramancy and drop Melira, where you wont be able to lose unless they pull off some other bullshit win con like Felidar Sovereign , or wipe the board of all enchants first?

I'm all about playing with my resources and trading them for whatever's best for me at the moment. "I'm prepared to make that sacrifice"
Trading Post - I love artifacts, and I'll gladly re-purpose them for something else - then rebuild them. Every one of my resources can become another one at my whim.
Beacon of Tomorrows - When I run out of resources, this is how I get more. Out of card in my library? Infinitly loop this. Out of mana? Get another turn. Out of attacks? Same answer. This is how I close out my games once I've juiced them for every drop of power I can get.
Dream Salvage - My opponent has resources too. There's no way around that. But I can make a better use out of them then they can.
Gifts Ungiven - The illusion of choice is the cruelest punishment. You think you can choose what I get? Every choice is wrong.
Unburial Rites - The dead are my playthings. A fantastic piece of value, Rites can either give me 2 fantastic reanimator spells, or effectively a draw when you mill/discard it.
Counterspell - The classic. A universal answer that will keep your opponent off of doing anything that can disrupt you.
And this leaves my planeswalker. The only planeswalker that would fit these colors is Aminatou, the Fateshifter , but I would say that I identify more with Ashiok, Dream Render because it puts the opponents of of resources and can fuel yours.

Thanks. I thought it was a cool wincon back when it was first printed in Dragon's Maze. At the time, it was barely possible to play the deck in standard, until Theros dropped, then it was slightly playable. But I was taking a break from magic at that time.
I removed the Chromatic Lantern s to add another Riot Control , a Primeval Titan , and a Kiora, the Crashing Wave . Primeval Titan gets out so many lands and is a good blocker with Trample. Kiora, the Crashing Wave can block damage from permanents, draw you a card while letting you plan another land, or gets you 9/9 tokens every turn! I think she'll help a lot.
I added Wear / Tear for some artifact/enchantment answers. Maybe Pull from Eternity would be good in case my opponent is exiling my stuff? The sideboard has a few alternent wincons: Crackling Perimeter , Liliana's Caress , and Underworld Dreams provide ways of dealing damage to my opponents. Melira, Sylvok Outcast protects against infect decks, and combos with Phyrexian Unlife to help me stall out longer in case they're killing me too quickly. I even thought about Platinum Angel but 7 is a high cmc. Maybe it would be worth it anyway?

Solemnity does not make creatures with persist "indestructible". i would change that line because it is misleading. i would also recommend taking out Phyrexian Unlife . opponents will be blowing up Solemnity on sight which ruins the combo. it can easily be replaced with Good-Fortune Unicorn which serves the exact same purpose as Solemnity / Melira, Sylvok Outcast . Serum Visions and Opt should be traded for Path to Exile and Altar of Dementia . you need removal, and the cantrips aren't needed when you already have several different combinations of cards that result in infinite combos
