Thanks for the help guys! I love these suggests for a jank deck. My playgroup likes gimmick more than anything, so regular life gain/drain would be boring. This really tosses it up. I am DEFINITELY buying Axis of Mortality as a cheaper Soul Conduit.

The only thing I wanted to clarify was, does Evra make me "lose" life? A few cards y'all quoted activates based off lost life, but I see "exchange" as a different wording. If I go from 40 to 4, I realize that's a decrease in life, but I wasn't sure if that (mtg)legally activated the same way.
