This is the perfect combo for ANY life gain card. That's why it's so amazing in a life gain deck.

@asandberge: You're not entirely correct. When Beacon of Immortality doubles a player's life total, he or she gains life equal to their life total:

"Beacon of Immortality's effect counts as life gain (or life loss, if the life total was negative) for effects that trigger on or replace life gain (or life loss)."
- From the rules section of Beacon of Immortality

Likewise, even though Invincible Hymn says "your life total becomes that number", in reality you gain life until your life total becomes that number:

"For your life total to become the appropriate number, you actually gain or lose the necessary amount of life. For example, if your life total is 20 and your library has thirty-two cards in it when Invincible Hymn resolves, Invincible Hymn will cause you to gain 12 life. Other cards that interact with life gain or life loss will interact with Invincible Hymn accordingly."

Overkill with Sanguine Bond

Okay guys, of the "combos" listed, I think only rioks' really counts. What all of you are saying are life gain strategies that this amplifies. That's like saying Rage Reflection and Boggart Ram-Gang are a combo.

any halfdecent fast deck will rip most decks playing this apart. However 1 or 2 in a deck with many small lifegain cards is quite good.

Play with Felidar Soverign

Cradle of Vitality + Boon Reflection + fully leveled-up Transcendent Master = A life-link indestructible creature that triples his power and toughness every turn, all in only one color. Add in a Sanguine Bond and you got an overkill right there, even if the opponent blocks.

I am liking this card in my lifelink deck. Once there's one of those in play, any effect that makes you gain life becomes overpowered. Equip a Spirit Link or its black counterpart on an opponent creature and your opponent may think twice about attacking with it, even if it has a trigger on attack effect. Pretty much forces the opponent to give up on brute force as it becomes quite impossible to keep up with the life gain. Just hope the opponent doesn't have anything to take care of that card or doesn't use different win conditions (like milling).

Wow, has no one mentioned Illusions of Grandeur yet!? 20 life gain for 4?

@Grimjaw: Wouldn't this +Beacon of Immortality only triple your life, not quadruple it? If you're on 10 life, Beacon of Immortality doubles your life to 20 (gaining 10 life), then Boon Reflection doubles that lifegain, giving you another 10 life.
