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

Why u don't use donate!!!

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 + Switcheroo = Win

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...

Throwing an unblockable effect on top of Phage just isn't satisfying enough to me. First Strike is where it's at. There's more sport to be had! I mean, you're mostly going to use her in casual anyway so you might as well have fun with her and watch your opponent squirm as they throw creature after creature to their death in an effort to stop her!

This is a card that should have been in FTV Legends, just so we could get a print of her with the freakin' zombie subtype.

Torpor Orb would indeed counter the ability. Alternatively, Platinum Angel at the same CMC would work, and can be cheated out. Stifle is another option, but takes an extra blue mana on top of the cost for Phage herself.

You could always get lucky with 4 Dark Rituals on turn 1, if you know it's safe from removal.

Torpor orb only works on Phyrexian dreadnoughts effect If I remember properly, so torpor orb would do nothing for you if you messed with phage that way

Can anyone say Torpor Orb?

I love this card with Vraska the Unseen. Not only do you have to worry about Phage instantly killing you, you also have to contend with the Assassin tokens as well. I hope this gets reprinted in the next core set.

Is it wrong that I call this card "Rebecca Black?"
Posted By: EGarrett01 (2/22/2013 1:35:09 PM)


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.

If liliana forces you to discard phage, and then resurrects it, the player who controls it will lose the game. if she uses something that makes all players resurrect their own creatures under their own control, phage's owner will lose the game, not liliana.
