All I have to say is, play a card to give this card trample.

Just wondering if anyone else has noticed that after the Magic 2010 rule change Phage has become a card that isn't very useful.
First off she has to be cast so unless you reduce her man cost then it is kind of a waste.
Second after the new rules regarding combat damage Phage's second ability is also useless. Just asking did Wizards want to make her an expensive wort in the game.
Ok I admit this idea would probablyu make her broken on every account but it may have been a good idea to change that second ability to deathtouch so she would be of some use.
From what I can see unless Phage is given an evasion ability she's a target (an expensive one at that), the other option would be to increse her power and toughness but then again you might as well have a Festering Goblin which is a seventh of the mana cost.

One of the greatest instances of a threeway game I ever played her in.

Lifegain deck: "Hah! I gain 175 life! So what if I'm tapped out, swing with your puny 4/4 I dare you!"

Me: "Alright, and while I calculate the damage, care to read the card again?"

Lifegain deck: "....WHAT?"

Blue Control deck: "That's AWESOME! GIMME THAT! *Casts clone on Phage*

Me: "Alright, and maybe you want to read her as well?"

Blue Control deck: "....WHAT?"

Me: "I believe that's game ladies and gentlemen."

There's an old rule when it comes to whether a card in Magic is good or not: If the best combo capabilities this card has is with Donate, then it's bad.

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.

I am 80% sure this is the best card in all Magic The Gathering sets...from the beggining...
Only 7 mana for this killing machine...

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

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.
