All creatures have protection from red.

Absolute Law Discussion
1 month ago
Among the group that I play with, we have encountered a troubling question which none of us can agree on an answer for.
The situation is as follows:
- With Absolute Law active on the battlefield, its effect reads "All creatures have protection from red.".
And if we read the rulings:
- " 702.16e. Any damage that would be dealt by sources that have the stated quality to a permanent or player with protection is prevented."
We can assume all damage from red sources is prevented. So no target damage can be applied from spells or abilities.
In this situation; if we were to apply a global effect, such as an attacking Lord of Shatterskull Pass or casting Blasphemous Act where no targets are applied, does this bypass the protection ruling for preventing damage from red sources?
The reason we are curious is because the ruling makes it appear that it would simply sponge the damage. Though, effects like Wrath of God bypass "protection from white".

The Onslaught art for Pacifism is a nice piece of Akroma art.

My main suggestion would be to add more mana rocks so you can get your big angels out quicker.
For another angel themed card, Pacifism from Onslaught features a nice piece of Akroma art. And more cards Absolute Law/Absolute Grace also tie into your color protection angels if you want to expand that theme.

Veldt is out of your color identity, and 34 lands overall seems much to low considering you're running no real acceleration. I'd consider going up to 37 or 38, and adding few mana rocks.
Consider dropping the Circle of Protection enchantments for Rune of Protection: Black and its cycle. You're already mono-w so paying for it is still easy, but this cycle gives you the option to cycle. In a deck like this you're going to want the ability to get a fresh card if there is no red at the table, lets say.

The Landfall ability indeed triggers along Kalametra's.
Some cards I would switch out include:
Abzan Kin-Guard 4 mana 3/3 lifelink is quite weak.
Aetherwind Basker Has no synergy with the deck.
Aven Mindcensor This guy should stay if your playgroup is playing combo-heavy decks, otherwise he's useless
Blinding Souleater Little synergy with the deck
Salt Road Patrol Lacks utility
Aether Vial A pricy card mostly used in tempo decks like Merfolks. Not very useful here since we should have plenty of ramp anyway.
Arboria Kinda goes against Karametra as a whole since you WANT to play creatures to pump out lands.
There might still be a few cards I find odd or out of place, but for now I'm slightly running out of time, so I'll proceed with some general must-have cards:
Also wow Living Plane if you own one it's great, though if not it's quite the pricey card.
I can give you an extensive list of potentially great cards if you want me to, though tonight this is all the time I had, my apologies.

+1 Mesa Enchantress (you've got 19 enchantments and are complaining about card draw, solution found)

@Siq6Six: That is a lot but considering overall playtime it might be same since I play duel commander and the games are sometimes finished (rarely but still) in 4th turn. Just today I got killed by Kaalia and Master of Cruelties combo on turn 4.
I still need to see Sword of the Animist having some action since I never tutor it and rarely play it even if it's in my hand since I have some more efficient equips already in hand or in tutor's reach. Aside from that it really is a good card considering the amounts of mana the Fox needs.
Speaking of mana: how about an Extraplanar Lens? It is a great ramp even on turn 3 with a minimum of 4 available mana on turn 4, usually 6 though. It is good to have snow-covered basics for this unless you have an ally running plains in a multi-player match.
You made a good point about Duelist's Heritage, I will not be putting this in the deck because of it. As to Absolute Law -yes I do have two mono red burns and a couple of izzet cannons in my meta. But the most outraging deck AND in a quantity of 5 on one FNM is the Vial Smasher the Fierce. It really needs a ban in duel. Just because of this I put Purity and Spirit Link to my mainboard and bought Michiko. I believe Absolute Law would help me a lot.
Sword of War and Peace is a good one to have in the Fox. I wanted to put it in but I'm not sure if the lifegain and life-loss are efficient enough. It might really help against red decks though.
I found something pretty interesting: Howling Mine. Looks good only as a 2 mana draw engine but yes, helps your opponent as well. What if there was a way to tap it? Well, Inspiring Statuary! How cool is that! Not only does it cost 2 but also gives you one every turn with the Statuary! The second part of the combo is tutorable if you already have one in hand and a consistent double draws for 2 just blow my mind. Sadly, you can't tap your artifacts for mana anytime, but only when you play a spell. You usually do so in your turn though. And even if you don't, you'll have plenty to cast with the Howling Mine. What do you think?

Warxuaroz Wow that's a lot of games! Lol we usually average 3 games a night, but got in 5 tonight. The games tend to run Long & we all swap out decks when we want to change things up. Tonight I got a couple in with 8.5, one in with Kaalia and a final with Breya.
So Sram is gonna go. I even tried him as a Commander because I just wasn't drawing it. I wasn't a big fan. To be fair, we had a Kami of the Crescent Moon, so card draw wasn't an issue. If I was to change commanders, I'd consider Michiko or Akroma.
Armory Automaton, and even Conqueror's Flail would be excellent additions. Hopefully we'll see a foil printing! The deck list above is an accurate list of my cards (at least, up until changes these past 2 weeks).
As far as Godsend, I've gone back & forth with this one. Tonight it came out in two games & was pretty good. Nobody wants their dude exiled, it's a great deterrent.... and sometimes the 3mana equip cost is a deterrent to play it! With Fireshrieker, I've had it & pitched it. I kept drawing it when I had nothing else, and I really didn't want to attack into bigger crap with a 2/2. I have considered giving it another shot tho. Sword of the Animist used to be an enabler. It helps turn on Emeria, The Sky Ruin & Emeria sheperd, not to mention helping me dig out Plains. However, I could see preferring double strike over 1/1 & land tutor.
I slotted in Sword of War and Peace. I actually kept out Canonist to make room. However with Sram going out, Canonist can come back in.
Eye of Ugin is out & in comes an additional Plains. It had been a dead card in hand more times than it's been a tutor unfortunately. Also there are just too few Eldrazi to take advantage of it, esp with Conscription gone.
