"At the beginning of upkeep" triggered abilities go on the stack before you have a chance to cast or activate anything every turn. So while you can cast flash spells, instants, and activate abilities during the upkeep step, the soonest they could go on the stack is on top of any "at the beginning of upkeep" triggered abilities. So you'd force the life-gain trigger on your opponent, then before that resolves, activate Isochron Scepter, let it's ability resolve giving you the chance to play the False Cure copy, play the False Cure copy on top of the life-gain trigger, then let False Cure and the life-gain trigger resolve in that order. Your opponent is now losing twice the life they gain. So yes it would work.

The perfect blocker to any deck that wins other than with damage, like mill decks for instance.

@pieman: No, that would work. You get priority at some time between untap and upkeep, and the stick works at intstant speed, So Yeah.

@ttian: ...this is nothing like Wall of Reverence. Clearly you aren't reading it right.

@Alqatrkapa: Unfortunately, it doesn't combo with Rain of Gore. Rain of Gore is only triggered if something causes its controller to gain life.

False Cure

and now infect introduces another way to kill your opponent without caring about their life total...
too bad about the color though.

I will mention, as it seems the wording has perplexed us,
This does not work with Rain of Gore, but pairs with Inkmoth Nexus.

This could have quite a bit of fun in /W infect decks, this becomes a 2 drop 1/8 with no downsides.

Eon Hub would help but then again it's pretty expensive and pretty much defeats the cheap cost of this card.

Better in infect/mill decks.

Use with Arbiter of Knollridge for grand endurance?

or Reverse the Sands.

Awesome card. So big, but very balanced.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
