Deck discussion for Lich

This is basically Russian Roulette as a magic deck. xD Super fun idea. I personally don’t like cutting things so close, and you’re using most of the deck trying to prevent yourself from committing suicide, but this seems like it’d make for some crazy games!

I feel like I must be missing something, please include a how to play for this

It's all about how much risk are you willing to take. Recruit the demon, make a pact, or become a master lich? All offer great rewards, and if things go badly then there are a few ways out (the mirror, the sword, lich's mastery), but those come with risks as well.
I made the deck mostly for the flavor/story. It's meant for casual, and I've had a lot of fun with it. I haven't tried it in any competitive way. If anyone tries, please let me know!

I guess what I mean is, like walk me through how to play this deck. I love the flavor, but cannot see through it to its function

Oh sorry. There's no special sequence for spells. Just get the lich or demon out as quickly as you can, because they're awesome and enchanting them with lifelink is better. The life gain helps fuel card draw.
The worldslayer is for getting rid of the demon and pact when no longer needed or wanted. tormented soul is there to hit with the sword if nothing else can get through. Assuming the lich's phlactery counter is on an axe, sword, or doll, it alone remains on a desolate world.
I haven't needed the sword, because lich's mastery is amazing. If the demon or pact are causing trouble, underworld connections or the sorceries will get rid of them when lich's mastery is in play. And when it's in play, mask of memory help to provide things to exile if you take damage.
Lich's mirror is there just for one last chance if things go terribly wrong. And I just like it. Same with the doll, it's unnecessary.
I'm sure there are better cards that would make the deck more effective, but it's good enough for now. However, any ideas are welcome. Hope that helps, and thanks for showing interest.
