AWC–Alternative Win Condition

We are all familiar with the 3 main ways to win a game of Magic: The Gathering:

  1. Reduce your opponent’s life total to 0 or below.
  2. Drain your opponent’s library so they have no cards left to draw.
  3. Increase your opponent’s poison counters to 10 or more.

However, owing to the fact that cards can override win conditions, it is not surprising to find that Wizards have printed a number of cards that allow you to win a game by other means.

Using the appropriate search terms in the Gatherer, I was able to find 15 such cards

    Ah, I see, Phage just makes an opponent LOSE, it doesn’t make you WIN.
