Try it with Lich.

Yeah, except that Shunt wouldn't work. This is an ability, not a spell.

I combine this with platinum angel, greed, and repay in kind, and it's quite effective.

Without platinum angel, I can't imagine using it, however. Although it has lead to some debates as to what half of -46 life is :D

The sort of card that I like. It promises massive card/mana advantage, while telling you to simply throw away your life. Seems a bit hard to work around, at least with the card pool back in the day.

5/5 for flavor!
Concerning playability, I don't think we will see this card in competitive play...

Utterly worthless. To even beat a Terror you have to use it twice and pay 3/4ths of your life, at which point you've also spent 9 mana. There are better things to spend that on.

If you want to spend life in exchange for anti-creature card advantage, just run Ashes to Ashes instead. Yes, this can be used at less life, but Ashes to Ashes eliminates creatures much faster, which is worth far far more; and can be used better in the early game anyway, which is when it really counts. Plus, it exiles.

Also, regarding all those people saying that there's no way to make your opponent suffer the life loss: Mirror Universe! There are much better ways to lower your life for that, though. Try Lich.

The best kind of betrayal! Besides sudden but inevitable.

too funny
EDIT: sorry, meant Reroute
Posted By: Zyant (2/9/2010 4:10:25 PM)


reroute still won't work, you have to pay the cost, it doesn't say target player pays half his life. i'm sorry, but there's just no way to prevent the life loss.

also, if you're oponent doesn't have burn spells and you have a constant way to have at least more than 1 life, he'll never get to have any creatures in play. although there are a lot better cards to do that.
