Weekly Card Review (WCR1 Part2)

This is a new series of articles where I will review a card from the latest set Every week and its influences in constructed Standard, from the top mythic down to common cards that people might be ignoring their full potential. Between each review I will show a example of a deck where that card could fit. Please feel free to add more ideas and discuss the cards on each week!

Heartless Lich
Here is the list I've ended up with, I didn't find this deck strong enough to jump into a tournament with it since its quite weak against sideboards.
 Lands : 4Drowned catacomb 6Island 6Swamp 1Mountain 2Nephalia Drownyard  2Ghost Quarter
Other Spells: 4Ponder 3Tragic Slip 4Heartless Summoning 2Forbidden Alchemy 1Black Sun's Zenith 2Sphere of the Suns
Creatures: 2Perilous Myr 1Black Cat 1Phantasmal Image 1Priest of Urabrask 4Solemn Simulacrum 2Phyrexian Metamorph 2Bloodgift Demon 3Havengul Lich 1Steel Hellkite 2Wurmcoil Engine 1Consecrated Sphinx 1Massacre Wurm 2Rune-Scarred Demon 
This deck's winning method is to build the priest of urabrask/perilous myr infinite mana/damage combo, but also has alternatives such as a early Rune-Scarred Demon(or wurmcoil engine) + clones of it backed up by a handed lich to bring it all back. This deck's main weakness is control (Specially counter spells).
Tune in next week for another card review.
