Phage + Switcheroo = Win
Posted By: HeroErix (12/9/2012 12:59:04 PM)


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.

Elvish Piper and Ember Gale Without mana boosting, 6th turn standard win. With really good mana boosting, 3rd turn extended win, using Magus of the Vinyard, Mass Hysteria and Simian Spirit Guide. Best standard speed I can think of is 4th turn.

Ok first turn cast nothing so you can discard phage. Second turn drop one blue or black land and drop one mox jet or saphire. Play reanimate and get phage the untouchable and stifle. 3rd turn POSSIBLE realistic win. Yes i know black lotus would be nice but a poor man can dream eh. Yes i also know there are better 3 turn wins i like mine so bleah. P.S. MOX ARE ALOT CHEAPER THEN LOTUS THOUGH YOU KNOW MOX ARE STILL THE SAME AS A CAR PAYMENT AT LEAST MINE . <--- JUST A DRUNKEN DISCLAIMER

Re: comments by DarthExecutor & Synnestro: Elvish Piper allows you to play a card from your hand. Phage just says from your hand. It does not say anything about paying the mana cost, therefore you can play it using the Piper and not invoke the 'you lose the game' ability. As for Viridian Longbow's effect, it is not combat damage so the "ping" damage does not invoke Phage's ability either. That would be fun, though.:}
