The night is young and Phage is ready. Let's take a spin out on the town and see how the night goes.

The deck aims to have several avenues of casting Phage the Untouchable while dancing around a lose the game etb. Torpor Orb and Platinum Angel can negate the etb trigger while Campfire, Command Beacon, and Netherborn Altar bring Phage to your hand to safely cast. The deck features Swamp synergies such as Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, as well as mana doublers like Crypt Ghast, Nirkana Revenant, and Caged Sun. The numerous methods of card draw and tutors help us find all the pieces we need to complete our night.

Once on the battlefield, Phage finds victory through combat damage or combos. Combat victories are achieved through attacking players with evasion through Rogue's Passage or Wedding Invitation while equipment like Lightning Greaves or the land Hall of the Bandit Lord can speed up an attack. Phage can sneak out combo wins through Endless Whispers and a sacrifice outlet like High Market. Board wipes such as Damnation, Toxic Deluge, and Decree of Pain clear the battlefield while mono-black counters like Dash Hopes or Withering Boon provide basic stack interaction while setting up a combo.

Many black spells and lands utilize our life as a resource and can be particularly strong if used aggressively. Bolas's Citadel Black Market Connections, Necropotence, Vilis, Broker of Blood, Feed the Swarm, Staff of Compleation, War Room, Castle Locthwain and Hall of the Bandit Lord are all examples of this. Fetch lands are included to thin the deck and to provide shuffle effects for Bolas's Citadel. To offset this life loss, cards are included to gain life Polluted Bonds and Staff of the Death Magus or swap life with our opponents using Soul Conduit.
