Funny how you and your opponent can freely attack away while this card is out. Apparently it can't even live up to its namesake....

Only a few decks can work with opponent lifegain. Those that can't shouldn't use this.

I have a Barren Glory combo deck for multiplayer that bribes everyone with life until I can get the cards to win. It's a funny/stupid deck and this card is great for it, but obviously you wouldn't be running it in a serious deck.

Not the most efficient thing in the universe, but white political card draw is DEFINITELY playable

this is a pretty terrible card.

5 mana is rather expensive and giving your opponent 3 life makes it worse, use Pursuit of Knowledge if you really want to draw cards from white enchantments

If you're that deadset on reusable card draw try splashing a color! Green or blue would do just fine.

II'd never seen this card, but it would be pretty good in certain kinds of Commander decks. Better find me one.

Run with Kavu Predator.

Of course blue is more used in drawing cards, but compare this one to artifact alternatives.
Even the oldschool Jayemdae Tome only requires four mana (although you have to tap it, but regarding this enchantment, paying ten mana for two cards will only happen extremely rarely anyways)
Paying five mana AND giving your opponent three life sounds rather ridiculous.

Just look at the card.
A single extra card requires you to pay {{8WWWWW}} and give your opponent 6 life.
That's seriously not worth the card advantage, is it?

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
