As stated many powerful combos but is it good alone? Rather play Diabolic Tutor for a similar effect. I guess why it's a rare, good combos and cool art.

what if you have reduced all the cards in your decks mana cost to zero? do you still lose life?

@Existential, et al: Laboratory Maniac doesn't help you. This is not drawing. See 120.5

@LordRandomness and @TheWrathofShane: Angel's Grace won't help you. You will still die when the spell fully resolves since you are losing life rather than taking damage.

is there anyway to stop this chain of getting cards? like if you draw a land what happens?

Strictly better than Spoils of the Vault.

Suicide is bad. People should stop promoting it.

This is a horrible excuse for a rare.

This + Personal Sanctuary = infinite draw and no life loss.

Combo with Angel's Grace to draw your entire library followed by one turn kill combo of your choice, only for 3BlackBlackWhite!!! Or if you are so afraid of losing life, drop your Platinum Emperion first somehow. I'm amazed nobody realized this card begged to be abused it's not even funny.

Here is how you play it with no limits about cards in hand. Play Lotus Petal and play fastbond you can put all lands (Angel's Grace effect prevents you from dying). You can use Pact of Negation with impunity as you are going to win this turn.

Since this insanity bares no bounds, there is no kill like overkill so you gonna humilate your opponent at the cruelest way possible.

Play Crucible of Worlds and Zuran Orb for unlimited life and mana.

With bouncing land such as Orzhov Basilica you can retrace Raven's Crime t... (see all)
