I think bmena1 meant Wall of Blood. Great combo by the way.

Auto-Card is usually appriciated.

I know a special someone who's getting Berserk cast on them before being fed to the Rite :)

8/15/2010 Lethal damage, damage from a source with deathtouch, and effects that say "destroy" won't cause an indestructible creature to be put into the graveyard. However, an indestructible creature can be put into the graveyard for a number of reasons. The most likely reasons Phylactery Lich would be put into a graveyard are if it's sacrificed (perhaps due to its last ability), or if its toughness is 0 or less.

Yes, you can sac it. No, it doesn't stay around. It is sacrificed, not destroyed or dealt lethal damage.

As with any card that gains you life, it's deadly with sanguine bond and a win condition with tainted sigil and sanguine bond.

If only casting this on a Death's Shadow were more impressive.

I run a deck with this Nantuko Shade, and Sword of Feast and Famine. Fun.

Amazing card. Feels like it should be red though.

@SpencerDub: Actually, sacrificing a Death's Shadow to this is impressive. You can potentially deal a large amount of damage, and you reset your life to 13. That's fun with Phyrexian Unlife if you're at or below 0. Not only will they have to hit you at least two more times to kill you (i.e. once to reduce you to 0 or less, and then another to finish poisoning you), but you probably just killed them with massive damage. Come to think of it, that second part seems a lot more relevant.

This is Fling, but only to players and in sorcery form... but you gain life. Good card.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
