Temporal Extortion Discussion

Just wondering, do you want to have a subtheme of giving opponents choices? I see you have fact or fiction but also stuff like Temporal Extortion, Killing Wave, Pain's Reward, Do or Die, Curse of the Cabal, Desecration Demon, Coercive Portal etc.

Um... It looks awesome, though I would probably run Rhystic Study instead of the Mystic Remora, just on the principle that the Rhystic Study is far more obnoxious because you get to ask for cards whenever your opponents cast any spells at all. If you ever think of changing your commander to add black to the deck, Time Sieve and Temporal Extortion are some really great cards. Temporal Extortion in particular can be very niche when played at just the right moment. XD +1 from me for sure!

Tortured Existence for easy swap of big creatures to reanimate later for small creature to cast them again during early game.
Cards like Sadistic Sacrament, Bitter Ordeal, Nightmare Incursion, Praetor's Grasp are great for removing either important combo pieces of opponent's decks or just remove anything that could directly harm you and your plan. Peer into the Abyss could be fun aswell, also Temporal Extortion.
Fabled Passage - I dont really understand why would you use this in mono-color deck? Doesnt really seems like worth using just for another land for Urborg.
Beacon of Unrest - Really nice card to reanimate any creature or artifact.
Buried Alive, Reanimate and Entomb are just classic reanimator cards.
Blood for Bones, Victimize are also pretty decent reanimator cards.
Mortuary/Haunted Crossroads - kinda reanimator enchantments for Bolas's Citadel
For Syr Konrad, the Grim I run Tainted Strike as a sneaky finisher. All you need is a lot of creatures on board and someone just board-wiping them or I use Tortured Existence+Desecrated Tomb+Phyrexian Altar
Cavalier of Night - works both as good sac outlet and reanimator for creatures with cmc or less.
Clackbridge Troll could be worth using both as "food" for Massacre Wurm and force opponents to either sac or take damage from Troll during combat.

Glad you like the idea. I'll be sure to checkout that The Commander's Brew game. Best of luck brewing Licia!

Me Reading Temporal Extortion: This card sucks because they'll always choose to lose the life so you'll never get the ... waaaaait a second!!! hehehe... Hahaha... MWAHAHAHAHA!
Clever! I still don't think it's a great card, but isn't it the best feeling when you find the perfect place for a weird obscure card like that? So nice. :) well done.
Just overall, I find Licia to be one of the coolest mardu commanders out there. Still, lifegain has never appealed to me and I didn't think she was really playable any other way until I watched a guest on The Commander's Brew play a version of her featuring Axis of Mortality, doing a lot of the same shenanigans you're doing here.
Fascinating stuff. Hope to put together my own list eventually.

You get a +1 from me just for the concept/strategy but most importantly using pet cards of mine like Temporal Extortion and Heartless Summoning and using them well. This is an interesting deck. Suggestions:
Cut Faithless Looting. Add Past in Flames
Cut Infernal Contract. Add Wheel of Fortune
If Living Death is the true engine of the deck and you run a lot of reanimation support it might be worth running Demonic Collusion. Fills the yard while getting whatever you need.
Gamble is always good but the random discard can be utilized in this strategy.
