Examples of cards with protection that aren't protection from specific colors:

Warren-Scourge Elf - Protection from Goblins (goblins can't block or target it, but other creature types can, even other red creatures)

Emrakul, the Promised End - Protection from instants (you can still point a sorcery or enchantment at it)

Emrakul, the Aeons Torn - Protection from colored spells (you can still target it with abilities or colorless spells)

Horizon Drake - Protection from Lands (lands that turn into creatures can't block or damage it, lands that target with an ability can't target it)

Polis Crusher - Protection from enchantments (no Auras allowed, but non-enchantment spells are fine)

True-Name Nemesis - Protection from a chosen player (that player can't do anything to the Nemesis, but other players can)

Progenitus - Protection from everything (you basically can't do anything to it)

Remember that something with protection can't be:

  1. Damaged by sources with the specified quality (Goblins, lands, everything, etc.)

  2. Enchanted or Equipped by permanents with the specified quality

  3. Blocked by creatures with the specified quality

  4. Targeted by spells with the specified quality, or by abilities from sources of that quality

The quality in question doesn't have to be a color.

Hi. Looks like I posted after you on Commander Deck Help. The thought police will get me if I don't post card recommendations on your deck.

...that would be your endgame. For the early and midgame:

So, your gameplan would be to play Aminatou on T3, play creatures that kill things/draw cards when they enter, blink them with Aminatou repeatedly to kill opponent's things, draw into counterspells, and generally destroy their will to live. Once you have a comfortable lock, +1 Aminatou and put an eldrazi titan on top, polymorph a draw creature into it.

axatix, I have written some stuff in the description explaining Emrakul, the Promised End. Its a really tricky thing to do. Probably the hardest thing in ever. Predict one turn ahead when one of your opponents is going to win and steal that win.

You can do it vs every kind of opponent. Doomsday and Laboratory Maniac you can't use that. But you can cast Doomsday and make a pile of five land cards ... and send everything else into exile. Most cede decks have ways of killing themselves. Ad Nauseam - Tainted Pact - breakfast hulk can deck themselves; etc!

kamelyan Thank you for your advice, I actually forgot to add Swords to Plowshares and Hero's Downfall. I might add Emrakul, the Promised End if I feel like I have the mana during playtesting, I do heavily consider it though.
