Amusing when someone Telemin Performances you and this is the only creature in your deck.

Yes. I have found it. My response to the new Karn.

I thought the flavor of Swat was great. Even just a smack across the face from Phage will kill you.

This + Viridian Longbow = you're a moron. Pinging is not combat damage. Never has been, never will be.

About the best thing that can be done with her is making her unblockable, and there are a billion different ways to do that in just about any color. Besides, if your opponent finds out you're playing with this card, I'm sure they'll pull out any number of ways to get rid of her. Condemn ftw.

That being said, I've had so much fun blowing this card up in multiplayer it's not even funny anymore. Someone has already commented on dropping an O-ring on her, then disenchanting it. What's more fun is dropping the O-ring, and watch them cringe every time someone ends their turn, wondering which player is going to blow the ring up and make that player lose the game. There are just too many easy ways to make this card backfire to make it worth running, as well as too many ways to get rid of her. Thankfully, creature removal/counterspells are in... (see all)

I am happy she is now zombie.

I run a zombie deck with four Dirge of the Dead (Usually using cycle) and Zombie Trailblazer. I mainly depend on Trailblazer because my friend runs an all artifact deck. Good things though are that I have 3 Dark Rituals and 3 Burnt Offerings and 2 Zombie Warchiefs so I can play Vengeful Dead on turn two and get my trailblazer ready and sac the vengeful the next turn and play Phage. I only have to get a zombie turn one, though, like Festering Goblin.

I'm really not sure how a card that makes you lose the game with a single flicker can be rated above 4. this isn't one of those "dies to removal" comments - you actually lose the game! Also, 4/4 is not hard to kill (or chump block).

Fun card, but...terrible...

Gamecast, near-deathtouch, and gametouch

Phage on battlefield: "I play land, Groundswell, Mutagenic Growth, Berserk, and Glistening Oil. Entering combat, I attack you with phage for 20 points of trampling, infect, "I win the game damage"." This would likely never work but still, no kill like the overkill. Flash them a Fling if you feel like taking it a step further.

Does not combo with Liliana Vess.

Bad card. People without hands like pirates can't play it.

Best EDH general ever
Posted By: SirLibraryEater (1/13/2014 12:52:20 PM)


EDIT / UPDATE: I was wrong -- Karn Liberated's rulings clarify that restarting the game after exiling her means that you *DO* lose:

"After the pre-game procedure is complete, but before the new game's first turn, Karn's ability finishes resolving and the cards left in exile are put onto the battlefield. If this causes any triggered abilities to trigger, those abilities are put onto the stack at the beginning of the first upkeep step."
She's cool, but I'm afraid of a card that lets a single Otherworldly Journey kill me.

BTW, Karn Liberated's ultimate works with her since she never "enters the battlefield" in that case.

Insanity wolf:

Plays Phage the Untouchable as general.

Casts Phage from command zone.

Masticates furiously.

Not only does this perfectly represent everything about black (extreme power with a risk attached), it's my new favorite card.

Not because it's good (and it is good), but because of how it makes people feel. When Phage comes out, everyone's nervous, but at the same time they're excitedly scheming on how to turn her against her caster. And boy are there so many ways to do this (target her with Banisher Priest, kill her and cast Living Death, give her persist or undying, or just steal her and swing in). It's not just some weird corner case; Phage will nearly always end the game, but you truly can never know exactly which way she'll swing. And when she does one-hit-kill your opponent, the game's done; I'd always rather be killed by her than some stupid drawn-out Erayo lock.

And just knowing she's in your opponent's deck is intimidating. Do you really want to cast that It That Betrays? That ... (see all)

Discard her and have Lazav, Dimir Mastermind do her dirty work, cheaply and safely.
