Becomes much more useful in formats with larger-than-20 life totals.

Unfortunately it count's a gaining or losing life, I wish it would just "become" 20 life.

The worst of a cycle of goofy cards (most of which I am very forgiving of.) Even if you only have a couple life, this is overpriced.

Blessed Wind is really only useful for countering infinite-life combos.

Use this against those pesky "I gain infinite life this turn" decks. :p

Play with False Cure, since it counts as gaining/ losing life. However much life they gain will immediately trigger for twice that much damage.

Agreed. Player1: I have fourty billion life but hey at least you can do a measly twenty-five or so. Player2:I Play Blessed Wind. Player1: FFFFFFUUUUU- Player2:Owned.

VERY VERY USEFUL in VERY specific situations.

Well technically if you control Platinum Angel it can gain more than 19 life, such a situation would be incredably rare, but it Could happen (even rarer would be a situation where it would be better to cast this rather then just protect your plat angel with vines/Hindering light, but hey, it COULD happen, 1 out of about 43,000 games maybe, I have seen 1 game where somone got to -80 life or something, and this could probasbly woul've been useless still)

I think it's really overcosted to be honest. Just cast sorin markov against those infinite life decks, and use something like heroes remembered if you really wanna gain life, and you should probably just cut it totally and run something that sticks around, like wall of reverence.. But 9 mana for even 19 life, which is unlikely, at sorcery speed.....no thanks.

IMHO this cards oracle text is wrong as this is ruled to be either life loss or gain depending what the players life was before this resolves. So it should read:


Target player gains or loses life so that their(1) life total becomes 20.

(1) 'Their' is acceptable singular third posessive form when gender is unknown. I hate the artificial 'his or her'.
