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

Nice ability and flavour, powerwise though it's just "meh". It's a 4/4 for seven mana with deathtouch. Your opponent should by that time have enough mana to counter it, kill it, or block it all day long. If you have bad luck, your opponent has a flicker effect which means you just killed yourself by playing phage.

Nice idea and everything, but just too costy.

I enjoy cheating this into play. Then explaining to people why I lose without them asking. Even if I've made the same play to that very same person person.

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

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...

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.

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.
