If an opponent would gain life, that player loses that much life instead.

Tainted Remedy Discussion
1 week ago
DragonSliver9001, I have found that for a budget deck this functions quite well and has often won even without remedy. When I used the competitive tag I meant that I was trying to make the deck as competitive as possible well still remaining budget and centered around Tainted Remedy. If you have any actual suggestions to improve the deck I would love to hear them, for now I suggest you review the tappedout comment tutorial.

sergiodelrio: thats not what "silver bullet" means. worst case is he can't cast it at all because its 6 mana. will technically steal games "less" than not, due to the odds of drawing a Tainted Remedy being so low.

i don't think this strategy is on par with modern. many of these cards are just flat useless or outright bad if you don't have the Tainted Remedy, and your only tutor is 5 mana.

Fatespinner might be worth a try. In most situations your opponents just choose to skip combat. The downside is they possibly stop attacking each other but it is a major tempo swing to lose either your draw, main phases or combat step.
Torpor Orb: They still get there creature just without its extra effect. I think this falls more in line with your 'don't shut them out of the game' reasoning where you wouldn't want to play Cursed Totem.
Ankh of Mishra: Similar to polluted bonds. If most games you tend to have extra life or you tend to hit your life-gain pieces often then I would consider running this.
Meekstone: Let's the big stompy guys swing once but normally your opponent just won't tap them. Plus, your deck looks like it doesn't really care about dealing combat damage.
Bloodchief Ascension: A good card to simply bleed your opponents and gain life. You could run the combo Mindcrank but I don't think you want to mill your opponents. So, I'd leave the combo out unless you just want a combo win.
Tainted Remedy: Sometimes this is a dead card but when it isn't it is glorious. Turns creatures with lifelink into, "When this creature deals damage it deals that much damage to you."

Saw the last update was adding Heartless Hidetsugu which rules with Mogis, but whybreplace Command Tower? Why not a basic land. Command Tower is a superior land. Maybe you needed to swap it into another deck?
Also Dictate of Erebos synergizes really well when you have hungry demons eating tokens and opponents are forced to block. Just adds so much more pain. It works real nice with things like Abhorrent Overlord.

Lol, I don't think anybody in modern plays Tainted Remedy in their mainboard or sideboard unless they're trying to make a really janky deck. Its highly unlikely that you'll ever run into the card. Also, in modern, lifegain decks aren't considered competitive or played enough to have people use sideboard or mainboard slots for it.
