Phage the Untouchable Discussion

if you want some repeatable card draw, maybe look at Soul of Ravnica ? You can also use Karona, False God for a nice tribal boost. And maybe Phage the Untouchable isn't the strongest avatar, but she's a fun one. Plus, a good way to punish any Rise of the Dark Realms your opponents may play

Logo79 I was actually looking for a place to put Dregscape Sliver then abandoned the idea, now I’m reconsidering. It is a very powerful sliver. And Sundial of the Infinite is probably one of my favorite cards. I use it in my Phage the Untouchable deck and it puts in work

Not Black, because that seems too easy.
Emrakul, the Moon
Legendary Artifact Creature - Eldrazi
Flying, Trample, Indestructible
When Emrakul, the Moon, enters the battlefield, if you cast Emrakul from your hand, you gain control of each opponent until your next turn.
I love low-cost commanders Selvala, Explorer Returned , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Aminatou, the Fateshifter , and my expensive ones are Obzedat, Ghost Council , Elenda, the Dusk Rose Samut, Voice of Dissent , and Shalai, Voice of Plenty . I want to cast my commander easily and often. Emrakul also would just get Path to Exile , Chaos Warp , Swords to Plowshares , Anguished Unmaking , etc. upon the etb trigger. This is wayyy too much of a bogeyman for my taste. my Playgroup already knows to kill commanders on sight, but this is the most obvious ever.
Also, I love White, and colorless seems like a nightmare.

Thanks for you input, ClockworkSwordfish!
Initially playtesting the deck i realized that without the access to the access to useful wheels is rather limited. Therefor i tried to limit the number of creatures i'd feel devastated to hard cast then get into the graveyard later on. So far Maralen of the Mornsong is the only one. And trust me, if i hard cast her, people really shy away to block/attack into her, blow up the board and so on.
Without discard options Phyrexian Dreadnought is the only close to convincing option of your suggested creatures. And that one sits at 20€ right now. Which is way more than i'm willing to pay for a two turn clock. Consuming Aberration , Mortivore , Nighthowler , Wight of Precinct Six and Phage the Untouchable are capable to one shot opponents usually.
Buried Alive has been in the deck for a while, but proven to be risky. Buried Alive plus Ornithopter et al, one of the above finishers and the requirements for said finisher to be lethal, maybe even mana to counter/protect my commander isn't as easy to come by. And that's just considering the best case scenario.
I'd like to try Geier Reach Sanitarium as another looting land to see if it fits.
Anyhow, thanks for checking out and analyzing my decklist, i appreciate it!

Thought about it again and I have to say Phage the Untouchable is still infinitely more playable than Haakon, because there is some possibility, however remote, that an opponent will be foolish enough to play Tocatli Honor Guard , Torpor Orb or similar which would let you get Phage safely into play. And having some possibility of playing your commander and make good use of it is better than having no possibility.

You know it! I thought about putting Phage the Untouchable as commander, but that just didn't seem awful enough

It does indeed follow the same template as Fiend Hunter which means it's abusable.
Reconnaissance is really good, but it's at its best in a deck that always wants to attack (like Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist ). Here it's occassionally useful but not enough to warrant a card slot. It's hard enough to find room for cards as it is :D
Anyway, I think you get the idea with wave. There's always a situation where it's useful even when it sits there doing seemingly nothing. Hell, like you already said you could throw it in play even without a board but just as a political tool. Creating deals where you generate value for an opponent in exchange for not being attacked. Possibilities are endless.
Oh i forgot the most fun way of using Parallax Wave:
