@MattLynn It can be donate'd, and Vampire Hexmage'd but the card says, "You MAY have your life total be.."

This+Oboro, Palace in the Clouds+Fastbond+any landfall equals infinite activations of that ability.

Combos well with Phyrexian Unlife. Each time you drop a land, they have to first reduce you to 0 or less, and then - only then - resume killing you with poison. Essentially, each land you drop will buy you at least one turn against many, if not most, decks.

Or, if you are absolutely freaking insane (in the membrane), you might purposely remove all the counters from this, then, with Phyrexian Unlife in play, drop a land and cast Repay in Kind. (Lich would work too, but it leaves you more vulnerable. I think.)

when your life total becomes a value, rulings say that you are actually gaining or losing that much life...

hey, I think I've found a use for sanguine bond!

Just remember that at a draft, Vampire Hexmage is uncommon, so don't expect to see too many. And the way the ability works, the entire ability, including the "may" goes on the stack when you play a land. Your opponent can then remove the counters, then you choose not to set your life.

@beefrocks Eternity Vessel actually does cause gain or loss of life. Straight from the reminders on Gatherer - "For your life total to become the number of charge counters on Eternity Vessel, you actually gain or lose the necessary amount of life. For example, if your life total is 4 when Eternity Vessel's landfall ability resolves and Eternity Vessel has 12 charge counters on it, the ability will cause you to gain 8 life. Other cards that interact with life gain or life loss will interact with this effect accordingly."
