Power Conduit. As long as you've got another creature or artifact out, you'll never have to sac. more than one creature a turn. Actually, scratch that. You can remove the age counter in exchange for a +1/+1 counter each turn on it. So as long as Power Conduit's in play with it, it may as well read "during your upkeep sacrifice a creature and put a +1/+1 counter on Phyrexian Soulgorger"

The unfortunate thing about Cumulative Upkeep is that putting an age counter on it and paying the cost for each age counter are not seperate actions. Like, you can't remove the counter with Power Conduit before you've paid the associated cost.

Pretty cool, very phyrexian. I run one with saprolings and plants, it works nicely.

Fun for newer players like myself to go back and see the Phyrexians on other planes :)

Fear the Phyrexiasaurus.

Feels like a white weenie finisher to me, you'll likely have enough fodder to keep him around for a few turns, or use things like Whitemane Lion, Kor Skyfisher, or Dust Elemental to reset the upkeep counter.

@Stray_Dog: I remember feeling the same way when I first found out about Phyrexia and was looking through the various preconstructed decks on the site back in 2003; I remember actually drawing Phyrexians when in grade school, with my own pet card that I drew and proxied with my friends being "Phyrexian Dragon", a 5 mana dragon that was a 5/4 with flying and first strike, but made you pay 5 life when it came into play.

That's the thing that makes me think of Phyrexia as Magic's greatest villain; it's a constant presence with years of history behind it. Even when thought dead after Apocalypse, Phyrexia still returned with Coldsnap and Time Spiral block, and then they came back in full force with Scars of Mirrodin. Hopefully, we'll see them again soon. :-)

As for Soulgorger, this is one of the cards that made me go "Wow" when I first saw it. It's more of a Johnny card than a Timmy card, but it still appeals to my inner "rawr". It helps that the art is awesome... (see all)

There aren't many better creatures built for an Eon Hub deck.

An absolute monster. Very reminiscent of old-school Phyrexia. Not this new crap, with it's horrendously powerful creatures with no drawback, and it's poison counters, and it's actual winning and all that crap. Back in the old day, we had gargantuan, suicidal creatures that were impossible to maintain and ate up critters and life like it was closing time at the buffet. And it was GLORIOUS.

Hey, you can sacrifice it to itself to avoid having to sacrifice it because you failed to pay the upkeep!

Play with Pandemonium. Sick artwork though, it's like Robo-Santa's Raptor
