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.:}

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

Why don't people just ignore her first ability while playing her as a general in Commander?

(Or do they and I don't know it? Eh, at least there's no such thing as official Commander rules...)

I am happy she is now zombie.

I run a zombie deck with four Dirge of the Dead (Usually using cycle) and Zombie Trailblazer. I mainly depend on Trailblazer because my friend runs an all artifact deck. Good things though are that I have 3 Dark Rituals and 3 Burnt Offerings and 2 Zombie Warchiefs so I can play Vengeful Dead on turn two and get my trailblazer ready and sac the vengeful the next turn and play Phage. I only have to get a zombie turn one, though, like Festering Goblin.

This + Viridian Longbow = you're a moron. Pinging is not combat damage. Never has been, never will be.

About the best thing that can be done with her is making her unblockable, and there are a billion different ways to do that in just about any color. Besides, if your opponent finds out you're playing with this card, I'm sure they'll pull out any number of ways to get rid of her. Condemn ftw.

That being said, I've had so much fun blowing this card up in multiplayer it's not even funny anymore. Someone has already commented on dropping an O-ring on her, then disenchanting it. What's more fun is dropping the O-ring, and watch them cringe every time someone ends their turn, wondering which player is going to blow the ring up and make that player lose the game. There are just too many easy ways to make this card backfire to make it worth running, as well as too many ways to get rid of her. Thankfully, creature removal/counterspells are in... (see all)

Opponent: I use Karn's +4 ability on you, discard a card.

Me: *Discards Phage the Untouchable* *Troll face*

I thought the flavor of Swat was great. Even just a smack across the face from Phage will kill you.

Me: For you maybe. *activates divining witch's ability, discarding phage*
