Yeah, Lifelink seems like a good idea. Also Sulfuric Vapors/Akki Lavarunner and Furnace of Rath/Overblaze/Quest for the Pure Flame if you have a way to not kill yourself. Like Lifelink, but not Spirit Link. Eternity Vessel might also be nice.

As for infect, you can just keep your opponent's life above 19 and yours below 20. Skyshroud Cutter or Tree of Redemption or something. Alternately, in multiplayer, you can just threaten to kill everyone.

Furnace of Rath doesn't always give an instant tie, due to the words "rounded down" on this card. Instead Heartless Hidestugu would reduce all players life totals to 1 or zero depending on whether their life total is odd or even respectively. I think this is much better. All you need to is make sure your's is odd and theirs is even, but this does involve life gain/loss as it's impossible to cause an odd numbered amount of damage with the Furnace in play. My other favourite combos:
Lifelink on Hidestugu.
Grafted Exoskeleton (especially vs lifegain decks)
Pariah's Shield preferably on Stuffy Doll (auto win if your life total is higher than your opponent's, or autowin if you also have the Furnace of Rath out)

This guy is plain funny in Two Headed Giant.

One of my first ever rares, got him in an intro pack.

I love the concept, the backstory (he becomes a GOD) and the sheer downright coolness of it.

I can't say much more. He's just that good.

He should be the one to give the Final Punishment to you opponent.

"Hello, Toshi..."

Best character in the Kamigawa novels. Easily.

(Not that it's much of an achievement though...)

Even better than lifelink give him infect!
Be warned, you may lose all your friends.

This guy should seriously be an avatar or something.

@Forgeling It and Overblaze were even in the same precon.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
