If you would lose life, instead exile that many cards from the top of your library. (Damage causes life loss)
If you would gain life, instead shuffle that many exiled cards you own into your library.
You do not lose for having 0 or less life.


An idea that came to me. 
No, that's a lot of shuffling if you have an Ajani's Mantra in the field. The games would last forever.

I would just put them on the bottom of the library in any order.

So basically, you'd lose only by getting decked? Interesting.... I kind of like it

All cards I make have artists credited in the appropriate places. Artist names in "quotes" are DeviantArt usernames unless otherwise mentioned.

"I play a Grave Betrayal. I get all your dead things now, mwahahahaha!"
"Okay. I play a Phage the Untouchable. Piss me off and I will sac it."
"... ... ... so guys, remind me again how to sac my own enchantments?"

There's probably some super-hilarious exploit here with voluntary life loss + lifegain to stack your deck but I'm too lazy to find it. I like this.

this adds like 40 life (cards) to your life total

looks like Mtg hasn't given up using the word "battlefield" which is completely unnecessary as the board is be considered the default state

Question: what if you'd gain life when you have no cards in exile? How does that work?

that's way too cheap and way too little risk to be a lich. It's broken

Very much so. I mean, it does put your max life total as below your starting number of cards, but you also get to choose which cards you shuffle back in. And it says "exiled cards you own" rather than "cards you own exiled this way", further blurring what qualifies as exiled.

Yeah I have to agree here. This is a pretty easy card to build around so that you're gaining a steady stream of life each turn. It would be hard for an opponent to burst kill your entire deck (and that's only 60 card) before you recoup a great amount of "life"

And IceMetalPunk raises a good question, do a replacement effect still "happen" even if it can't actually be carried through?

If you would gain life, instead put that many random cards exiled by ~ onto the bottom of your library.
You do not lose for having 0 or less life.
If ~ leaves the battlefield you lose the game.
