Is it wrong that I call this card "Rebecca Black?"

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.

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."

Phage is an interesting name, as in latin it means eat or eating, and phage sure eats your opponents.

Obviously, the proper, if expensive response:
Stop! Hammer Time!

Pull this off (obviously, you need multiple hammers), then you get the ultimate... wait, what's the type of gamer who doesn't care about winning, but wants their opponent to die of laughter before the game ends? 'Cuz that's how I've been doing it.

Give your opponents no satisfaction in EDH with her as your general.
Play Vedalken Orrery, and when you're on the brink of defeat, pop her out. "Oh no. I seem to have killed myself..."
For double rainbows, play Strionic Resonator and double the ability.

Uh... Endless Whispers plus Go for the Throat anyone?

Well I am currently making a Phage the untouchable EDH deck because all my friends joke about how she is the worst general. I have always loved her, this card just feels so perfectly, evilly black. WHen you have her out, someone is losing, either you or your opponent. The deck is coming along nicely too. Obviously Torpor Orb, Platinum Angel and Sundial of the infinite are in, so I can play her. I enjoy the fact that these combos have the potential to lose me the game if they fail too. Dying by your own general is just neat.

The rest of the deck will be pretty standard mono-black control, but I want to keep with the theme of her, so lots of boardwipes, of course the unblockable enablers, and an Akroma's Memorial for irony/fun. This will be my forth mono black EDH (Ashling the extinguisher, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder and a retired griselbrand/autocar... (see all)

I have to say, she is by far and long, my favorite Magic card. I really think people don't give this card enough credit. While its true that she can, in many many ways, be the one that kills YOU and not your opponent, she EMBODIES Black Magic. She fits, whole and true, the 'kill or be killed' concept of Black. The 'win at ANY cost' that used to be so prominent in Black cards. She also instills a sort of nervouseness in players if they don't have that immediate answer, and must sacrifice all they have built to keep her away until they can be rid of her.

Functionally, the card is, as many have noted, very difficult to use. But its exactly why she is so much fun to play. Experienced players bash her with unrelenting malice, calling her a 'noob card'. Any card that can give you a potential auto win deserves such a major drawback. Its BLACK.

Phage has always had a great effect on games in my playgroup. We are not, by any means, pros. We play casual, and we often play EDH. And its so... (see all)

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!
