So basically, this card gives you a week until the apocalypse. Neat.

You can dramatically increase the 'clock' with cards like Vampire Hexmage (would enable it to go off the next turn) or Hex Parasite (with only 4 mana available, would get it down to 2 counters after the next upkeep).

Then all you need is some early lifegain, and congrats! =P

There are plenty of ways to end a Magic game in a draw. If something does damage to you and your opponent at the same time (say, Earthquake or Pestilence), that can be a draw. If you both have empty libraries and something causes you to both draw at the same time (Jace Beleren, maybe), that can be a draw. If you both have Platinum Angels keeping you alive while you're both at negative life or >10 poison counters and something kills both angels at once, that's a draw. Anything that causes loss conditions to trigger for both players at once is a draw.

Plus there's also draw by infinite loop, but that doesn't come up very often.

Utterly ridiculous card, since there are so many easier ways to win in seven turns, and if you're not careful you could end up losing (or, bizarrely, having a draw) anyway. Naturally, I loved it to death and built a deck around it.

Divine Intervention.

Test of Endurance might be a better choice, but if your gonna run this try Power Conduit.

@Mode :: Um, this is actually capable of achieving a win or a draw depending on life totals. Divine Intervention is only capable of achieving a draw.

you possibly want to fasten the removal process, don't you? ;)

on the other hand, who desperately wants to run a card that is only capable of achieving a draw?...

combos well with renounce. Just sac your permenats right before the last counter is removed.
