By the time you've lost five life, you can probably get four back with treshold. Don't forget to sacrifice your land if you do!

The Threshold ability is nice, but the mana ability is counter to the threshold ability, I wouldn't play this at all...there's better lifegain out there, and better choices for white mana...

There actually exists a deck where this is useful! Play it in a Darien, King of Kjeldor EDH deck.

Then again, there's probably a deck out there somewhere that can use any given card.

Or, you could just play a plains and not have to lose life at all! imagine that.

Would be a decent card if its second ability didn't require threshold.

They should've just named this Pains.

Wait . . Wizards . . you made a life gain card that would probably damage the player more?

Hilariously bad.

I like it. Typically you would Armageddon w/ a Dingus Egg out, sending all lands to the GY taking 2 for each land and subsequently screw yourself. Now, I could cast Reverse Damage, or Circle Of Protection: Artifact or some garbage, right? If it's countered though, S.O.L huh?

Not anymore.
If you're behind on life, and your ultimate goal is to possibly cause all involved a heap o' damage, you lose. Well my friends, that's the biggest PITA about Land Destruction. This card allows me to gain 4 life just before resolution of the Armageddon, thus off-setting the damage of up 2 lands going to my GY.

Well... at least it doesn't ETB tapped like a lot of other non-basics do?

Yeah, I got nothing.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
