You don't lose the game for having 0 or less life.

When you have 20 or more life, you lose the game.

Whenever you lose life, you gain 2 life for each 1 life you lost. (Damage dealt to you causes you to lose life.)

Transcendence can combo with Sanguine Bond and ways for you to gain life or lose life which then makes opponents lose life with Transcendence. Blood Celebrant , one mana creature who for one mana can pay its ability cost while making you lose life. You pay life with Celebrant this causes Transcendence to gain you life, which causes Bond to make opponents lose life.

Transcendence  would be more fun with Donate and the red Donate i cant remember the name of.

Here is all of them but for this idea you should go with something that spends life. Selenia, Dark Angel or Vona, Butcher of Magan are interesting options. Selenia is better for enabling combos faster and works great with the likes of Repay in Kind or Transcendence for that matter.

I just had a fun idea to make a deck that somehow had Transcendence Which was paired with something like a Platinum angel or maybe a card where a player cannot gain life and thus would negate this effect. Unfortunately My Green / White deck has no options to make this happen unless I want a vulnerable creature like P angel on the field so I was thinking of maybe making a black white commander of some kind with this in it as a potential win combo! Problem is I cannot think of anyone interesting or fun to play as. So, any of you know of any fun black white and possible maybe even just a three color with those colors in it so I can maybe pair that card with a Forsaken Wastes or maybe a Necropotence

TortillaConfetti on Budget Zedruu

Kind of, off budget haha, but here is my Zedruu deck if you wanr or need some inspiration, Gift Dealer Supreme, also, you could use Venser's Journal and cards like Temple Bell and Howling Mine in order to start some politics at the table and ensure more fun haha, Sphere of the Suns , Strionic Resonator and Pentad Prism are musts on a Zedruu EDH in order for you to donate useless stuff and copy your upkeep trigger with the Resonator, so you will be gaining a ton of life and getting advantage and sneak a good old Reservoir kill, and...the ultimate JANK, Transcendence a win condition that only works if you are below 20 and your opponents have a ton of life, anyway, your deck is looking good, and feel free to come by my list to get your opinions, have a good day! :D

A friend of mine just pointed out Transcendence to me. My playgroup doubles all life numbers on cards, so cards like Felidar Sovereign arent completely broken and needs 80 to activate.

This one might be more difficult in your game if you play will standard life counts on cards. cause you couldnt play it unless you had 20 or less that turn.

NetholonTheArchmage on Zedruu, Enlightened Master

@MCJennings I'm glad that I could arouse your interest in this formidable weapon :) I have just teted it yesterday at my local FNM and it did great work. I managed to copy an opponents Boundless Realms by using Sunforger to cast Fork ... This was probably one of the greatest plays I've ever done :D

I like your way of thinking about the "huggy ramp" There's one card that came to my mind immediatly: Oath of Lieges seems to fit in this category perfectly... gods be merciful... Now I need to overthink the decklist again...

Transcendence truly is a great and absolutely insane card! I had it in the deck for a long time but I am switching my wincons, trying new things from time to time. I'm sure it will make its way back into the deck at some point though, as it is one of my personal favourites... I remember one particular situation: One of my opponents was casting an Exsanguinate for 35, killing all players but me and himself. I had a Render Silent at hand... but also had an Enlightened Tutor ... I decided to use the tutor, fetching me the enchantment in question. The Exsanguinate-guy at first didn't get what I was up to, telling me that this wouldn't help me to survive his next turn. This was until I gifted him the enchantment gracefully... :D

I know what your talking about... it's the evil goat speaking out of you there... I do love my Perplexing Chimera ... so much chaos... just perfect. I just recently stumbled upon the Divine Intervention ... I. Need. This. Card. It's just everything my deck want's to do: Spreading a lot of chaos doing some unintelligible nonsense, prolonging the game for about 15-20 turns just to cast a card like this...
