Brion Stoutarm could make it worth your while, and you'd even get all that lost life back, which is pretty nifty.

Also, Near-Death Experience.

In any lifegain deck, once you have more life than your opponent, pay as much needed into this and cast any damage spell based on creature's power for the win. Or Surestrike Trident...

This is an excellent card! There are quite a few nifty combat tricks you can use with this (anything that makes walls lose defender, anything to make a creature deal damage equal to its power (rite of consumption, fling, soul's fury, etc.). Don't underestimate suicide cards.

The Fling/Rite of Consumption combo would probably benefit from a Children of Korlis as insurance in case of a counterspell.

This is an excellent card and let me tell you why. When you're being attacked, the damage is going to take your life points but this lets you lose the same amount of life (or sometimes less.) and take down a creature while you're at it. This is especially awesome when dealing with trample creatures.
