Kitesail + Lich = Indestructible Voldemort using a kitesail to chase Harry Potter through the air.

Because broomsticks are too mainstream.

This is going to be amazingly fun to equip with Ring of Xathrid :)

I really want to build a deck with 4 Racks, 4 Black Vises, and this guy though. Because seriously- a Mono-Black Control deck that DOUBLES as the Tomb of Horrors? Umm, WIN!

Love the 'Doomy 13' in the Expansion symbol :) Look at the whole spoiler list, with special attention to Black and Artifacts- I swear with Nicol Bolas and Tormod's Crypt, someone *deliberately* planted 'Doomy' looking cards because it's Core Set 20 13. 3:D

Yay, he's back. But the artifact block is rotating out! No!

wow finally a card that makes Darksteel Relic not look so bad after all!!
run 4 liches, and 3 Relics...and u got 4 indestructible 5/5's all the time...
Too bad New Phryxia is rotating out of standard soon. But maybe good still in modern.

Mono-black control is looking even better with this guy. Now I just need some good artifacts that could run with this.

Once the handy dandy darksteel rotates, This guy is going to have a bad time. On the other hand, I love the flavor and it will always have a spot in casual decks.

This card saw almost zero play when it was first printed. It is flavorful but... why?
Posted By: lorendorky (7/6/2012 2:16:15 PM)


@ lorendorky: A couple of reasons that I can think of, probably. The first being that, like Aura Enchantments, destroying the target of the Enchantment (or in this case the permanent with the Phylactery Counter) gets you a 2-for-1, killing both the creature (or Lich) and the permanent with the counter or the enchantment. Coincidently, it's probably not a great idea to run the Lich with Enchantments. The second being that he's hard to run with colors other than black and mono-black decks tend to avoid including a reasonable number of artifacts.

It's not clear from what I wrote, but I love this card. Power/toughness.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
