Attach this to a Soulcage Fiend for zero drawback when he dies.

Ha ha what they turned clamp into. XD A few small changes, and a 5/5 card turns to a 0.5/5 one.

And no: it doesn't work well in suicide black. Suicide black is about destroying your opponent as fast as possible with highly efficient cards with hefty drawbacks. That works only if it follows that line in a very consequent way. Adding suddenly cards that are NOT about destroying your opponent simply gives your opponent room to breath and deal with your threats.

*staring at juggs*

Take this staff my Planeswalker, it will guide you through your many journeys ahead of you.


Oh, and you get life. YAY LOL! :D

Guys, this card is seeing play in standard in UW. It is actually quite decent.

Pfff. That's cute, guys. I'm gonna put it on my Magma Phoenix and fling it for a total of 7 damage to target creature or player, while negating my lifeloss and blasting away everyone's Cyst Bearers, Corpse Curs, and Insect Infect tokens.

@ Cyberium:

I know just how to solve your problem: Attach this to Ember Hauler for a cheap beaty beatface goblin who can be like a weaker Lightning Helix.

EDIT: Fun with Infiltration Lens. So much fun with Infiltration Lens. They kill your attacker, you get 2 cards and 3 life. I love it.

I like how this card basically completely nullifies a Kuldotha Rebirth all on its own when thrown on any 1-toughness weenie.

Combos with Mortarpod

I run four in my Birthing Pod deck, definitely helps with the early game after playing and activating the Pod with phyrexian mana...not to mention the potential life total swing after I stop paying with life.

If you compare this to average equipment (not mythic rares like Swords or broken cards like Skullclamp) I think its a perfectly fine card for its cost. I would say its in line with the likes of Bonesplitter and Leonin Scimitar. Bonesplitter is more aggro, Leonin more balanced, and Lifestaff more defensive.

This card works great in one deck I play that utilizes Cheap Phrexian Mana creatures, Rage Extractor and Skeleton Shard.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
