Circle of Protection: White Discussion

apasa292 on Is there a card that ...

Got it: cast Leeches, then activate Circle of Protection: White targeting Leeches, preventing the damage, and removing the counters.

Scenario 1 - Akroma's Memorial would not protect Ornithopter from Archangel Avacyn  Flip because Avacyn is .

Scenario 2 - Circle of Protection: White would not protect your opponent from Avacyn, the Purifier  Flip as it is transformed and is when the damage is dealt.

Color identity, which is what I beleive you are thinking about, is only really applicable in Commander/EDH to determine if a card can go into the deck; it has to account for both sides of the transform card in case of varied colors.

Double-faced Card Rules:

  • 711.4. Each face of a double-faced card has its own set of characteristics.

  • 711.4a While a double-faced card is outside the game, in a zone other than the battlefield, or on the battlefield with its front face up, it has only the characteristics of its front face.

  • 711.4b While a double-faced permanents back face is up, it has only the characteristics of its back face. However, its converted mana cost is calculated using the mana cost of its front face. This is a change from previous rules. If a permanent is copying the back face of a double-faced card (even if the card representing that copy is itself a double-faced card), the converted mana cost of that permanent is 0.

Scenario 1:
My opponent has Akroma's Memorial in play, giving her creatures protection from red and black. I attack with Archangel Avacyn  Flip (not transformed into Avacyn, the Purifier  Flip), and she is blocking with an Ornithopter.

Does the pro-red from Memorial have any effect whatsoever on the white side Archangel Avacyn  Flip, or has the "color identity" aspect of EDH just caused us to have a very confused perspective of double faced card colors?

Scenario 2:
Archangel Avacyn  Flip transforms into Avacyn, the Purifier  Flip, dealing 3 damage to each creature and each opponent, and my opponent has Circle of Protection: White.

Same kind of question, does the CoP:W have any effect whatsoever on damage inflicted by Avacyn, the Purifier  Flip's red side?

Thank you for your help!

On re-reading my comment just above, I realized I should have said Circle of Protection: White and Rune of Protection: White. The auras I have for casting on my own stuff aren't that critical either, in hindsight. There's Prismatic Ward, which becomes pretty much unneeded if Painter's Servant is operating, and Nimbus Wings, which could be be replaced by colorless equipment. So, I should reconsider Ruffigan's suggestions.

Reading through your description, I might suggest an instant or two such as:

  • Dawn Charm
  • Mana Tithe
  • And possibly another combination that may or may not help:

  • Eight-and-a-Half-Tails
  • Circle of Protection: White
  • Of course, I would only recommend you sideboard these for now and playtest them against decks you know actually run enchantment removal and burn spells.
