Very funny card, when people use Beacon of Immortality. I also got a black white deck, where I use False Cure, together with Life Burst and Laquatus' Champion to great effect.

Note that if you play two false cure in one turn, the effect is not doubled but tripled. The opponent still gains 1 life by whatever lifegain effect was played, and then loses 4 for each life gain that way (2 from each false cure).

Good card to combo with Swords to Plowshares on powerful creatures.

I like the skyshroud cutter and rain of gore suggestions. I'm going to build a deck around effects that give other people life and punishing them for that. Because that's the type of deck I like to build.

@Mike-C Uhm...no, the life lost is not cubed. If it cubed the life loss, gaining 5 life would result in 125 life lost. Majinara is correct. The effect of this card (losing life when attempting to gain it) is tripled (as in the life lost as a result is tripled). Using the five life example, if a player would gain five life, that player does so and then both False Cures cause the player to lose 10 life each. 5-(10+10)=15. With only one, it would go as follows: 5-10=5. And as I'm sure we all know, 15/5=3. So, if you are going to criticize people on the term's that they use, be sure that you have your OWN term's correct.

I know anything referencing Isochron Scepter is cliche and obvious, but this would be hilarious in stick form. It would be like the anti-lifegain taser.

Phage looks funny on the picture. She's like:"Hey there, Jimmy! Up for coffee and cookies?"

could be a funny first round kill when used along with Skyshroud Cutter and/or Reverent Silence.
since the lifegain replaces the mana cost, all you need is a land (at best Bayou or Overgrown Tomb) and another mana souce (like Dark Ritual or Lotus Petal).

I dream of playing this in response to heroes remembered

It's time to reprint this card. Lifegain is out of control.
