Jeez, I love things like this. For life-gain guys(like me) who get pissed off with high-damage aggro guys(like... okay, me as well. It's a little conflicting. I just tell girls "I'm complicated"). We're going to play Stigma Lasher in our red/white deck, and drop Power of Fire on top of it. Then we're going to tap Stigma Lasher and deal ourselves 1 damage. Wait, what? You're going to hurt yourself?!? Yeah, so I'm feeling a little masochistic today. But wait. Now, we're going to pop out Transcendence. Congratulations, damage is no longer a factor for you. You may now go nuts. Of course, if Transcendence is countered, you're screwed for life-gain, and you may well be in trouble. But hey, it's fun just for the looks, right? Turns out, guys like me, who like life-gain, hate Stigma Lasher. But I've discovered a fun little way to make it work for me, to piss off the aggro guys, like me. Good thing I only play with myself in the shower these days.
