Combo with Leeches

Reminds me of that old PlayStation 3 ad...

I have a feeling you can burn someone down by giving this to your opponent with Bazaar Trader . Turn Unlife into artifact with Liquimetal Coating and give to opponent using Bazaar Trader?Unlife probably got its own deck now considering you only need to do 10 damage instead of 20.

This art is absolutely horrifying/creepy. I normally don't feel that way but this art is just crazy good/disturbing. The card is mediocre. This is essentially life gain and in anything but standard I imagine this will likely be a neat combo piece.

However, great combos with cards that say you can't get poison counters. Neat also that it doesn't care about "life loss", doesn't care about "paying life", so it does allow for interesting combos with things like Channel (infinite mana), with anything in the set that allows the alternative life pay, especially immolating souleater, death's shadow, suicide black, etc..

This + Immolating Souleater = an unexpected win.

Great art!!

As already written, it's sad that it basically gives you +10 life. The drawback => you can't pay life as you could do with +10 life, but for the benefit that this could work with some poison counter abusal. However there are no cards that benefit from the number of poison counters you have.

Another fact. If you regain lifepoints to raise your life-total to 1+, you won't get poison counters on the next attack, since damage is dealt simultaneously.

In my opinion, this card DEFINITELY needs phyrexian mana!!!

This card is a total bomb with Death's Shadow. The Shadow grows in power even when you are
at negative life and you can keep losing life for even more power, so long as the opponent does not do 10 damage before that. In other words, you cannot lose the game on the condition that you lose life, you
need to take damage. This means this card should find a warm place in the heart of any Black mage.

Combos nicely with cards like Death Wish, which cause you to "lose half your life, rounded up". Which means if you are at -9, you gain 5 life. :D

This makes Phyrexian mana firebreathing insane. Won't work with regular "pay x life" cards though, as you can't pay life that you don't have.

"This is more than just an extra 10 life. You can use this to pump infinity life into your new Immolating Souleater just in time for its first attack,"

You can't pay life that you don't have. In most cases, you'd be pumping the Souleater no more +10/+0; now if it only had Infect....

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
