You can have her as your general, but "officially" she will kill you when you cast her from the command zone (unless someone counters her, but I wouldn't bank on that). Unless your playgroup sets their own house rules, she's not the best choice for a general. Plus, she wouldn't really leave room for much fun stuff anyway since she's only good for ending the game quickly for one or more players.

Yeah, don't.

As an aside: Platinum Angel.

You can also use Avarice Totem to exchange control of your Abyssal Persecutor with another player, or if you Grinning Totem someone else's Stifle, Trickbind, Voidslime, or Angel's Grace with Mycosinth Lattice to allow you to cast it. There's probably another few cards that can save you, but I can't think of any off the top of my head.

The best reason I can think of to use Phage as a General is if your entire playgroup uses Gather Specimens a lot. Then build a Phage deck with a ton of tutors, a ton of mana ramp, Winding Canyons, and all the creatures you want (particularly those that are on the cheap side to cast).

I would laugh my balls off if I saw that happen.
