How is that possible?
Reducing your Sol Ring to FREE does come at a cost. FREE is generally not FREE... Based on probability it will cost you 1.5 life per upkeep. Sure you can hit Heads a few times in a row and dodge the cost, but eventually you will have to pay the piper. When played on turn one, I've seen EDH opponents take a lot of damage over the course of a game. Upwards of half their life total.
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Personally I don't think this is a card that goes in every deck (especially when the cost is around 15,000 PucaPoints). But... Maybe you want to lose life (Soul Conduit). Maybe you gain a lot of life (Trostani, Selesnya's Voice). Maybe you have a way to get around the dreaded flip (Paradoxical Outcome). Maybe you can sacrifice it and recur it (Lurrus of the Dream-Den).
However you use this card it's a sweet trade!
