|Commander: Rule 0
Destroy target creature. Its controller loses life equal to its power plus its toughness.
Suspend 5— (Rather than cast this card from your hand, you may pay and exile this with five time counters on this. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter. When the last is removed, cast this without paying the mana cost.)

TypicalTimmy, it's from the Mirrodin Besieged block. Melira, Sylvok Outcast has the ability to remove Glistening Oil from the infected. As you said, if it fully corrupts the heart its incurable. Venser, the Sojourner was suffering from Phthisis(powerstone radiation poisoning) and knew he didn't have much longer to live. So he gave his spark to Karn and the spark flushed the oil from his body. That's how Karn Liberated was cured.
As for Nicol Bolas, his memory isn't erased. Jace Beleren created an illusion where he showed Nicol exploding and then Ugin, the Spirit Dragon just took his name in such a way he cannot be summoned. Thus, his home is now a Prison Realm.

I elect Phthisis and its healthy string of consonants!
Hyalopterous Lemure would usually make me stumble as a kid.

A card that fits the theme is Phthisis since it was the thing that the first Phyrexians were afflicted with prior to compleation. The first Phyrexians were patients so it would fit well with Yawgmoth.

You know I'm curious. I had a tasigur deck that slowly morphed into a Thrasios / tymna deck, and I've seen 3 tasigur lists that have Phthisis and I'm wondering if that's in there for a specific reason or you just had it lying around

Looking pretty good so far austintayshus! Excited to see how this comes out!
Some cards that can be considered:
- Sunder - Maybe a bit too rude?
- Murder - Removal with no downside.
- Delay - All around good counterspell.
- Obliterate - Better than Jokulhaups because it can't be countered.
- Kaboom! - It's just funny casting this spell.
- Ovinize - Can be useful.
- Hatred - Goes on theme and can threaten to one-shot someone.
- Blightning - Hand disruption?
- Rewind - Untapping lands is great.
- Unwind - Same as above.
- Opt - Better than Omen in some ways.
- Phthisis - It's funny saying this word.
- Necropotence - Best card draw as well as refill.
- Desertion - I want to have nice things too :P
- Plaguecrafter - On theme and works with Thrax.
Just some more ideas lol and maybe for lands you can consider running:
They aren't great but they funny to add in haha, hope that helps!

You must choose a target for Phthisis when you put it on the stack, and can't change that target later without some outside effect telling you to (such as Redirect). Additionally, if all of a spell's targets become invalid, then the spell "fizzles" or is removed from the stack with no effect.
So you can't change the target to the 7/7 after you've already targeted the 10/10, and your opponent won't lose any life if he Putrefys his own creature.
