    Life gain decks don't usually have win cons, that's the problem. You need to have a way of winning, usually through control. I say make whatever deck you want and figure out what works for you.

    I have a casual life-gain deck that's pretty successful. The key is to have cards that do more than just gain you life. Loxodon Hierarch, for example, is good because it's also a decently-costed creature that can save your other creatures. Heroes' Reunion, on the other hand, is bad, because it doesn't do anything.

    Sphinx's Revelation is a great card for a life gain deck as well. As is Trostani.

    Sphinx's Revelation is alright, but the problem is that it requires blue, and blue just doesn't have a lot to offer in the way of life gain, or even ways to take advantage of a high life total. For card-drawing, I prefer Well of Lost Dreams.

    You can if you're not actually doing anything with that life. If you're just gaining life, you're not actually coming any closer to winning. And it's easier to take life away than it is to gain it.

    That's why I once cast Storm Herd to get 8.5 million Pegasi.
