@jemas42: No, if you were at 4 life, and took an Abyssal Persecutor to the face, it would technically bring you to -2 life (which is possible with that particular card, as well as Platinum Angel). State-based actions would check after all damage is done, and Unlife's replacement effect would start. So if you got hit yet again with A.P. you'd be at -2 Life, 6 Poison.

May I also mention that this is not strictly worse than Angel. In this Metagame, the Angel is going to die. Quicikly. But other than the occasional Naturalize or Ancient Grudge, which most people are foregoing for broader cards in the sideboard, This could stay on the board long enough to get your win con out. Of course, if you start taking poison counters then you're looking down aggro, control bashers, or burn, and you have a limited window to take care of businiess. Overall, subpar in competitive standard, but comborific in formats like... (see all)

Am I correct in thinking this is worse than winning 10 life? (of course there are a couple strange interactions out there, like death's shadow, but generally speaking...)

so outside of combo decks, this card basically gives you 10 life. not bad.
