TypicalTimmy: you can subscribe to threads without having to comment on them. There's a "Subscribe" button which does just that.

BigBadE: I think if you're going to build a 'killing them with kindness" deck then you're going to struggle if you limit yourself to black/red (assuming you're using Blim as commander). There are cards like Forced Fruition which can drown your opponents in cards. You can also look into cards like Suture Priest and Hunted Troll (i.e. giving your opponents creatures which then kills them).

many years ago, I played against a deck (it was 60 card multiplayer, not commander) which used Endless Whispers with cards like Bronze Bombshell and Phage the Untouchable to win the game. You could look into effects like that as well if it were what you're after.

BigBadE on Killing by giving opponents "positive" …

I'm trying to make a "kill them with kindness deck". The basic idea is to give opponents cards I have with things like Blim, Comedic Genius. This is easy enough, and there are a lot of cards you can give opponents that just have inherent downsides. However, is there any way to lose from positive effects? For example:

  • Forcing an opponent to draw enough to mill them to death

  • Any card that takes life for some non-optional trigger (for example, Demonlord Belzenlok, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder. Phage the Untouchable technically works but I'd like something more like Belzenlok or Kothophed, which takes life.)

  • Any other gimmicks that can be abused to deal damage with things like token generation, mana generation, draw, etc... (like if mana burn was still around, giving your opponent a ton of mana)

This is limited by two factors:

  1. I can't find any way to force opponents to cast instants/sorceries (If you know of one, I'd love to hear it!)

  2. I can't find any way to force trigger abilities on an opponent's creatures (maybe can I give them to an opponent after triggering the ability? Any possible way to do this is welcome as well).

Any ideas are welcome, I know it's a strange idea but I bet there are a few cards that would work.

lets say my opponent has Lich's Mirror. I have a Phage the Untouchable and another creature with Vorpal Sword equipped. neither of the creatures have first strike so they will deal damage at the same time, and vorpal sword has been activated. I attack with both creatures and opponent declares no blocks. after damage, would lich's mirror save them from both instances of lose the game, or just 1 and the other would kill them anyway. I assume its the ladder, but I couldnt be sure

Phage the Untouchable could be a very spicy gift with Endless Whispers out.

And you don´t need to worry, if the player dies to Phage the Untouchable, Phage the Untouchable gets exiled when the player die´s to her trigger and the player can´t choose a new target for her with Endless Whispers.

Still Platinum Angel could provid some protection, you never now whats gonna happen with Phage the Untouchable.

Nine-Finger Keene is awesome and a candidate for my favorite legend of the set. That being said, three colors is quite the restriction as we only have 6 gates in those colors currently (including the 2 noew ones spoiled from this set). This set really needs to go gate crazy if Keene is going to work. Should've been 4 colors at least.

Legion Loyalty: I want to love this card. It's ability is very cool, but at 8 mana, you want your cards to be game ending or catapult you very far ahead on it's own. This requires you to already have a board state of creatures able to attack, and it gets perpetually worse the fewer opponents you have. The card should've been 5-6 mana.

Arhivist of Oghama, new white staple incoming. An excellent little value/tax piece.

Pact Weapon seems deceptively strong for an equipment. It's a Platinum Angel, Dark Confidant, and madness enabler all in one package.

Ascend from Avernus is an awesome mass reanimation spell and probably the best in white.

The various Orbs of Dragonkind are quite nice. Since dragons are costly, giving one haste (red orb) or hexproof until your next turn (green orb) are really nice effects. The blue orb is nice for value, but not on the same level as the red and green ones.

Displacer Kitten is going to be a problem, calling it now.

Campfire seems like a great card for all of those high cmc commanders. Phage the Untouchable especially likes it.

Hi m8,

This deck looks very nice. I'm using Etrata, the Silencer and Phage the Untouchable in mine as alternative (yanky) wincons. I also really like using Thalakos Seer because of his 'when leaving the battlefield' trigger.

Wkr,

Since Ninjitsu is not casting the creature you're cheating in, Phage the Untouchable seems like the worst creature to give Ninjitsu to.

Phage the Untouchable and Etrata, the Silencer are cards I can imagine going into a deck with Satoru.

Others I could imagine include cards with ingest such as Benthic Infiltrator or card draw such as Eternal of Harsh Truths.

I concur with average_overlord_enjoyer...this card is getting banned.
