It ain't gonna win you any games, but if you use this on one of your big creatures, say a Prime Speaker Zegana or a Bloodrushed creature, you can get some insane life gain for 3 mana. Sure, that won't make it easier to win, but it can make it harder to lose.

Does this card work with just the base power and toughness or can it be combined with +counter spells from other cards?

So a 5/5 card with a +3/+3 counter would that be 10 life or 16 extra life?

My bud sideboards three of those in his Gruul deck. Will not win the game itself, but gives you sometimes a bit more breathing room.

This on something that got bloodrushed with Skarrg Goliath. Sheeeet.

this won me a game last night, my 32/32 Cloudfin Raptor buffed thanks to Vorel of the Hull Clade was about to get Murder, i double the countes on it with Vorel of the Hull Clade and then use this, so in the end i gain 129 life, so i do think this deserve a better rating...

There are plenty of reasons to be unimpressed with lifegain, but it does have its uses - if it's powerful enough it's at least an extra turn or more added to your clock, lifegain can help make aggro/burn decks peter out as you strengthen your position (slower decks may very well need either lifegain or serious damage prevention), use it as a combat trick if your opponent might commit to an unwise attack in hoping to finish you, and even its greatest haters can't forget the combos that lifegain can get - buffed up creatures or even win the game straight-up among other effects.

In the right deck this card is extremely good lifegain. It can be 15 life easily in even a pretty generic greenish deck, and with the right kind of cards can be 30 or more life with no great stretching. It deserves at least the respect of a card that can excel within its effect type.

For targeting tips, forget about the Eldrazi. Try a pacified, ignored Primordial Hydra. Yes, I will take 512 life, thanks.

I... (see all)

This card fits rather well into my hexproof green aura enchantment deck. Weedy little one mana 1/1 omg aura'd up to a 4/4 maybe add an giant growth. Boom dropped a predator rapport and i've gained 14 life and swung for 7. Im not complaining helps put a small distance between you and your opponent.
