I was playing around with my friends Oloro deck and I started thinking about interesting life gain/loss enchantments. Then I thought it would be neat to have some abilities to get those going. I'm just not sure of the costs involved.

Shared Destinies 3WB
Enchantment

Whenever you lose life, each (target?) opponent loses half that much life rounded up.
Whenvever you gain life, each opponent gains have that much life rounded down.

1B, Pay 2 life: Draw a Card.
2: You gain 2 life. Only any opponent may activate this ability.

Initial thought was I don't see any opponent activating the life gain ability, ever. Interesting design though, here'd be my take:

Good Greed 3WB

Enchantment

1 W/B, pay 2 life: Draw a card, and each opponent gains 1 life
1 W/B, discard a card: You gain 2 life. Each opponent loses 1 life

I dunno... I've had a few games where I would have pumped an opponent's life total to up my own.

I like yours too though. Reminds me of Armistice if Armistice had a baby with Orzhov Guildmage

I like how yours allows you to just run mana through it and the life gains/losses even out.. Though maybe thats a bad thing... I dunno. I just like the symmetry.
