    Default Obsessive Life Gain

    I was thinking about the whole Beattrix (yeah I know its misspelled) and Gold Summit combo. But then I thought hey lets add obsession for control and wait Ambiguity Inhibitor. The thing about this is that you cycle through your deck better while getting better hand control. Throw in typical banker/acranist cards and you get a better life gain deck. Personally im the lazy type and dont put up decks rather deck ideas so we can all have nice deck combo conversations, because I think most of us would like to add our own flavor anyway. Suggestions for decks around this combo would be great.
    So what if its not broken, at least I'm original.

    It doesn't. You sure can draw like crazy, though!

    You see, once you hit the limit value that an Integer can hold, you roll back over to a large absolute value negative number. If you can find a way to Mirror Universe at the moment of the rollover, you transfer that large negative number to your opponent's influence total and viola! Victory!

    Ambiguity Embiggener would work even better. More drawing that way. Also, Selective Gluttony's are pretty disgusting in combination with one or more Gold Summits.

    Brad has a good point though, that there needs to be a win condition. I built a mono Banker influence-gain/covert deck a couple days ago. I ran it once, and got up to about 52 Influence. Problem was, all of my win-condition cards (Goons and Gristwalters [yes, yes, Gristwalter isn't a win condition, but he sure helps]) were all at the bottom of my deck. So I basically ended up killing myself with Gluttony and then got annihilated. The game took over ninety minutes to play out and I scrapped the deck afterwards.

    However, an Obsession-Greed deck would probably work much better. It would add deck-searching power, better control and everything. I might have to reconsider the idea.

    Actually I think Embiggener has a different wording such that you are not drawing cards, but putting cards from the top of your library into your hand. My guess is this is to prevent anything that triggers on card drawing.

  7. Default what you do..

    use Gold Summit, Gluttony, Writ of Reclaimation, (Removal here), Revivitate and HUGE creatures. Gain lots of life put the crap you don't want into your discard. Revivitate/Writ stuff back into play/hand/deck you want. VIOLA! Lots of life and a win condition

    It doesnt however if your gaining life it opens you up to be more aggresive with your attacks. I starting doing a build of this last night and put in lots of control. I guess the idea is that if im not controlling your cards, I have enough influence to attack without having to leave as many blockers. Plus bankers have cards that are good but you lose influence.

    A good way to attack and not be vulnerable is to kill your opponents cards.
    -you can do this more reliably by removing life gain.
