Near as I can tell, this plus Serra Ascendent is pretty dumb in Commander. Even dumber when used with Rafiq, just to create a huge lifeswing earlier.

A very difficult clock to race once you flip it. Much better a win condition for lifegain than I've ever seen. 4.5/5. We don't have the greatest lifegain cards in standard, however.

Glad they fixed the issue with Serra Ascendant wording.

This will actually make lifegain decks deadly... against non-lifegain decks.

If you can flip this thing over without dying, your oppoment deserves the pummeling of constant 5 damage a turn.

its basically a 4 turn timer for them to whittle down your already massive life totals, or deal with the problem.

and if you have more than one of the field... Good game.

Bleak Coven Vampires. Undying Evil. Pristine Talisman. Vault Skirge. Tribute to Hunger. This.

There is a deck in there somewhere.

Divine Favor, Cathedral Sanctifier, and Elixir of Immortality.

The whole "more than your starting life" thing was included specifically because of EDH, I guess.

Great card in lifegain attrition, terrible name. Chalice of Life/Death? Couldn't they at least have come up with a cool synonym

Mill yourself with Mirror-Mad Phantasm and then Archangel's Light/Gnaw to the Bone? Or maybe Vault of the Archangel and hordes of creatures?

Or maybe Feudkiller's Verdict? Boon Reflection? Beacon of Life? Sorin's Vengeance? Kicked Blood Tribute which would already basically be game with Sanguine Bond but who's counting?
