Why don't people just ignore her first ability while playing her as a general in Commander?

(Or do they and I don't know it? Eh, at least there's no such thing as official Commander rules...)

Because she would make the game shorter than it should be. Give her trample or unblockable, and hoop doop, GG. There is a 40 life total and 20 poison total for a reason, it would make EDH essplode. Also, why would you?

So this means it can only really be played w/ Cabal Coffers/Uborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth :\ Well then. Still cool right? Idk, I'd rather slam One Shot the Robot. Needs Wispersilk Cloak.

so phage has deathtouch right?

in deathtouch, if your creature is blocking does it still destroy the attacking creature?

Edit: Whoops, thanks Ophet, my bad

@Demonic_Angel13 You will lose, her copy is exactly the same ('cept haste and sacrifice obviously) and since she says "If its not cast from your hand you lose" and the copy is just put into play (from who knows where!) If she was extremely specific and named off every way she could come into play normally (When she comes into play if she is came from your graveyard, library, exiled zone you lose the game.) you'd be fine but if she came into play and she's not from your hand it's a lose.

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.

@Bufzar Just to be pedantic, "phagein" is actually Greek. It means "to eat" or "to devour". The Latin word is "vorare", which is where we get things like Mortivore.
