Sorin's Vengeance Discussion

Mcat1999 I get your concern, but your first hypothetical effect just showed in Kaldheim for a split-payment , with Behold the Multiverse . Good card, but not exactly tearing up multiple formats. Your second example I would compare to, let's say, Fierce Invocation or the Elvish Rite I just looked up and Brute Strength , with New Rowan out. Not quite as perfect a parallel, but I'm not sure your example is much worse. Your final example involves cheating out a creature, plus two planeswalkers, for Sorin's Vengeance and Syphon Life .
Of course, if they reveal a completely broken low-cost insta-kill Lesson, I retract everything and condemn the design fully. But I'm cautiously optimistic that the Lessons are going to stay fairly clean and healthy. From what I've seen, any potential gains in colorlessness and flexibility are offset by cost and effect size. After all, unless you have New Rowan out, you still have to pay and an opponent's card draw for Utter End .

Sorin's Vengeance might help alleviate your life gain problem. It’s not perfect but it might help. At its absolute worst, it’s 4 mana deal 10, gain 4.

Sorin Markov should be totally alright. +2 is good, -3 is also good; anti life gain decks and also works well in combination with Sorin's Vengeance, -7 kinda depends on what kind of deck your opponent's are running, but its usually fairly good or even devastating (if any opponent has Necropotence, they just insantly lose to effect like Sorin's -7).
Why not Exquisite Blood? It supports most of your cards and even works without you doing any damage/life lose to any opponent, anyone can do it for you and you get life.

Mirror of Fate could be neat here. It lets you reuse cards exiled by Yawgmoth's Will. You can even recur the Mirror itself this way. There is a wombo combo here alongside Will + Bolas's Citadel + Tendrils of Agony . Not that you need another combo haha. But it could be fun to switch things up if you get tired of Glacial + Dreams, or wanna keep your opponents on their toes.
These cards seem like they might have a home here or in a similar build: Necropotence , Soul Spike , Spinning Darkness , Blood Tithe , Sorin's Vengeance , Sovereign's Bite , K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth , Skirge Familiar

Sorin Markov and Sorin's Vengeance wouldn't be bad here. I have both I could trade away if you want. Other cards I have that I'm willing to trade to you that could help this deck is Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet and Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief and Bloodhusk Ritualist .
Directions to take this would be board control, hand control, an aristocrats utilizing Viscera Seer and Blood Artist . Blood Seeker wouldn't hurt against go wide strategies. I have all three of those if you'd to trade for them too.
Nirkana Revenant is great for this deck.
Ob Nixilis, Unshackled can do some serious damage.
Any of the Ob Nixilis planeswalkers and Lili plansewalkers wouldn't hurt

My favorite magic moment is being hit down to 1 lp by white aggro in the 5th round of standard fnm. I was 4-0 already with my grixis control brew. I had Chandra, the Firebrand in play which my opponent had ignored. I untapped and top decked a Sorin's Vengeance so I used Chandra's spell copy ability to deal 20 damage to my opponent and gain 20 life, winning instantly. My opponent was furious and began cussing me out and threw his deck against the wall. He was the textbook definition of a try hard. He called my deck a pile of $hit and told me I was terrible at magic. He was later banned from the shop by the owner for inappropriate and violent behavior.
Swing4Lethal, the Rage Inducer 4BR
Legendary Creature - Troll Wizard
At the beginning of your precombat mainphase if your life total is exactly 1, Swing4Lethal deals 20 damage to target player and you gain 20 life.

Probably shouldn't run those big x-spells and Sorin's Vengeance.
Dark Confidant could be great.
