TheoryCrafter on What Shall Happen to the …

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

Kogarashi on Phthisis

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.
