Best thing to have (in hand), ever, when facing Karn Liberated.

I finally figured out what was so familiar with Phage's pose in the picture... It reminds me of the painting of the Creation of Adam by Michelangelo!

Except this is a picture of Phage extending her finger to poke God XD

Phage does kill you if you put it onto the battlefield with Elvish Piper's ability. Phage needs to be cast, as a spell, from your hand not to kill you. You will also lose if you cast her, as a spell, from anywhere except your hand (like with Yawgmoth's Will). I think they changed the terminology partly to lessen this kind of confusion between cast and put onto the battlefield.

By far the worst EDH general EVER! ;)

So beautiful....... but I think I'll slip on this Darksteel Plate before I give her a squeeze.

If only she didn't have to be cast from hand, would make an awesome commander otherwise.

Card of the Day - Wednesday, August 13, 2008
Phage is an extremely powerful and complicated character. She began life as Jeska, Warrior Adept, but Braids, Cabal Minion gave her a new life as a walking engine of death. It is therefore somewhat odd that one of the cards she appears on is the relatively innocuous Swat. You don't really think of someone who can kill with a touch just hauling off and smacking an underling.

Fun casual card.
...just don't build an EDH deck around it.

Want to have fun? Run Phage as your EDH general in a casual match. As long as you have access to Platinum Angel, she's a truly frightening commander -- all you need is a protection/counter suite (Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Darksteel Plate, Nether World, Thrull Wizard, etc.) and a tutor/reanimation suite for the Angel.

@zacklar: it has to be combat damage, which means that it has to be attacking or blocking.
