"Stewie, do you like books?"
"Yes, but none overdue! For each overdue book, I will KILL you! FOUR TIMES."

@bingodino: No. First of all, Sylvan Library requires that you pay life. You can't pay life you don't have, so when you're at less than 2 life, you can draw two cards, but you have to put two back (not necessarily these two). Second, Ali from Cairo only prevents damage. Loss of life is not damage, so Ali will do nothing. The original wording of Sylvan Library even says this explicitly, as do the rulings on Ali.

I've got a question. What happens when you have an Ali from Cairo and a Sylvan Library in play? Can you draw 3 cards each turn and take 8 damage every single turn, even if you're down to one?
