Destroy target creature. Its controller loses life equal to its power plus its toughness. Suspend 5—{1}{B} (Rather than cast this card from your hand, you may pay {1}{B} and exile it with five time counters on it. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter. When the last is removed, cast it without paying its mana cost.)

The converted mana cost of a spell cast without paying its mana cost is determined by its mana cost, even though that cost wasn’t paid.
03/19/21
Suspend is a keyword that represents three abilities. The first is a static ability that allows you to exile the card from your hand with the specified number of time counters (the number before the dash) on it by paying its suspend cost (listed after the dash). The second is a triggered ability that removes a time counter from the suspended card at the beginning of each of your upkeeps. The third is a triggered ability that causes you to cast the card when the last time counter is removed. If you cast a creature spell this way, it gains haste until you lose control of that creature (or, in rare cases, you lose control of the creature spell while it’s on the stack).
03/19/21
If you cast a card “without paying its mana cost,” such as with suspend, you can’t choose to cast it for any alternative costs. You can, however, pay additional costs. If the card has any mandatory additional costs, you must pay those to cast the card.
03/19/21
If the target creature is an illegal target by the time Phthisis tries to resolve, the spell doesn’t resolve. No player loses life. If the target is legal but not destroyed (most likely because it has indestructible), its controller does lose life.
03/19/21
If the first triggered ability of suspend (the one that removes time counters) is countered, no time counter is removed. The ability will trigger again at the beginning of the card’s owner’s next upkeep.
03/19/21
Exiling a card with suspend isn’t casting that card. This action doesn’t use the stack and can’t be responded to.
03/19/21
As the second triggered ability resolves, you must cast the card if able. You must do so even if it requires targets and the only legal targets are ones that you really don’t want to target. Timing permissions based on the card’s type are ignored.
06/07/13
You can exile a card in your hand using suspend any time you could cast that card. Consider its card type, any effect that affects when you could cast it (such as flash) and any other effects that could stop you from casting it (such as Meddling Mage’s effect) to determine if and when you can do this. Whether or not you could actually complete all steps in casting the card is irrelevant. For example, you can exile a card with suspend that has no mana cost or requires a target even if no legal targets are available at that time.
06/07/13
When the last time counter is removed, the second triggered ability of suspend will trigger. It doesn’t matter why the last time counter was removed or what effect removed it.
06/07/13
If the spell requires any targets, those targets are chosen when the spell is finally cast, not when it’s exiled.
06/07/13
If the spell has any mandatory additional costs, you must pay those if able. However, if an additional cost includes a mana payment, you are forced to pay that cost only if there’s enough mana in your mana pool at the time you cast the spell. You aren’t forced to activate any mana abilities, although you may do so if you wish.
06/07/13
If the creature’s power is less than 0, use its actual value to determine the total life loss. However, if this total is 0 or less, no life is lost. For example, if Phthisis destroys a -2/3 creature, its controller would lose 1 life. If it destroys a -4/3 creature, its controller would lose no life.

As the second triggered ability resolves, you must cast the card if able. Timing restrictions based on the card’s type are ignored.
