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.:}

One word wispersilk cloak that was 4 words

Forget Trample...give her Viridian Longbow and you have "ping" for dead of your choice...slow and painful by killing your foe's creatures one at a time, or fast and merciless by going straight for them =P

You can't just cast NOTHING so you can discard a card on the first turn. If you go first you're going to only have 7 cards. I suppose if you go second you're allowed to choose not to put down a land, but you're whole strategy is very narrow, and practically never gonna happen.

The sheer amount of money you're talking about spending on those cards is ridiculous even without black lotus. You know what girls are, right?

Her + Viridian Longbow = WIN

I read some comments stating that this combo doesn't work but word for word, from Phage's Card text:
"Whenever Phage deals combat damage to a creature, destroy that creature. It can't be regenerated.
Whenever Phage deals combat damage to a player, that player loses the game."

From Viridian Longbow Card text: "Equipped creature has "Tap: This creature deals 1 damage to target creature or player."

Unless 1 damage is not the same as 1 combat damage. In which case Whispersilk Cloak FTW! xD

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
Posted By: Xineombine (5/17/2013 11:33:47 AM)


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.

I've noticed that players never die in this game. They lose, but they never die.
