People are thinking too small. This is obviously a combo card. Who the hell would you play this card in a mono white lifegain deck!?

Think people! What about a deck that wants your cards to hit the graveyard? Evoke? Maybe combine with black recursion? Things that die on their own like Aven Rif***cher? This could give you infinite life if you have a way of getting infinite mana. Maybe combo with Sanguine Bond? This triggers life gain effects like Ajani's Pridemate. You could get some nice lifegain with Boon Reflections as well.

I dunno. Maybe I'm overrating this card. I just hate it when people dismiss cards like these as "crap" or "useless" without considering all the shinanegans that they could pull. I'm sure that this lifegain spell has some hidden advantage that other lifegain spells do not. I'm positive that this is another hidden gem that is waiting to be polished.

While it doesn't look ... (see all)

As a card, it sucks. But in terms of flavor, I like it. The flavor text is just so depressing and it kinda makes you feel bad for the Mirrans.

Only those who are free from Phyrexian corruption can see the value of this card.

Seems like it would have been better to be a free effect for one or two life.

But... there are no Dwarves on Mirrodin!

Proper burial does the same better.

Infinite Mana with a Myr Deck.
If someone kills one of your Myrs, then tada.

It's possible to stall games with it and some support in limited... unless your opponent got some infect, or some luck, or some brains... nah, it's 1/5, not more

Just imagining this in a control deck filled with cheap mana producers, or even tokens. I guess that after a few turns, you could be gaining 8-10 life a turn... not bad for casual/multiplayer game. But then second thought arose - its hard to win games when you spend all your mana not to lose.
Bad card indeed. Put the ability onto a 2/2 cleric for WW and we have a decent card.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
