EDH! Just wait til you're low enough life to play this without losing, then donate it to someone else, preferably someone who would then lose immediately.

I once Donated this to my opponent. He was playing with a lifegain deck. He was not amused.

It's sort of like Phyrexian Unlife's older, more expensive brother. He does have his uses though, Sanguine Bond can scare your opponent from attacking you at all.

I know a guy who plays this in Zedruu EDH. Don't attack me, bro, I'll go below twenty and kill you!

my favorite story involves this card and zedruu

my friends and i were playing 2-headed giant. We were getting pwned, we had like 5 life and our only creature was my zedruu while my other friends had like 10 creatures and 60 life.
end of their turn, I enlightened tutor for this.
my ally asked, when I revealed the card for the tutor, "is that legal"?
I had 9 mana and the correct colors.

@MrPink343: Though intuition tells us that setting our own life total to 5 every turn by using Form of the Dragon would be a great combo, the reality is that the combo won't work because of the way the rules are written. Setting your life total to a number that is lower than your current life total is considered losing life equal to the difference between your current life total and the new one. Let's imagine your life total at the beginning of your turn is 14. At your upkeep, Form of the Dragon triggers and will make you lose 9 life to set your life total to 5. This loss of life will make Transcendence trigger, and when the trigger resolves, you will gain 18 life to your 5 life, putting you at 23 life. Transcendence will see your life total is 20 or more, and you will lose the game as soon as the "lose the game" trigger resolves. Even if your life total is 6, the gradual life gain in this combo is guaranteed to kill YOU in 4 turns (unles... (see all)

So WAIT just a fricking second. o.O

Stoneforge Mystic
Solitary Confinement
Demonic Tutor
Idyllic Tutor

Nefarious Lich

Sanguine Bond
Everlasting Torment
Rain of Gore
and Vizkopa Guildmage

oh and there are tons of Angels, Demons, and Dragons with giant spells just tacked onto them.
all of this can be made rather DUMB with Aurelia.
I mean it. I really... (see all)

This card, with the best luck, gives you 36 life. Play it at 1, then destroy it at 19.
