Ramos (the legendary artifact dragon) is an auto-include in the Progenitus deck I have not built yet :)

LeaPlath ok, so iv'e taken out the draw as I realized you're right about it being unneeded. and I know emmy is a better choice for my Polymorph but because it is 40$ and Progenitus is only 11$ and is the best runner up that isn't 20$+... anyway what do you think of the deck now?

There is literally no "invulnerable" creature. Indestructible? Exile it. Hexproof? Boardwipe. Both? Toxic deluge/final judgment. You can make it a pain in the ass to remove, but not invulnerable. Even Progenitus gets screwed over by Sudden Spoiling+Darksteel Mutation

solarPULSAR,
By the way, just to pile on Epochalyptik's comment ...

Protection means "This [object] can't be blocked, targeted, dealt damage, or enchanted by anything [quality]." So yeah, Progenitus is SUPER-powerful. But it can still be beat.

Indestructible is another term that can be confusing for new players, so you'll want to be careful with that one too. Even though "A permanent with indestructible can't be destroyed ... by lethal damage" it can still be sacrificed, die due to zero toughness (e.g., with a bunch of -1/-1 counters), etc.

And finally, welcome to Magic!

Dabean27 I mean, I understand that, but alot of these counters cost way less than the win condition creatures themselves. If you can remove my 10drop Progenitus with a simple 4 drop board wipe, that seems super annoying to me. I get checks and balances, but my checks cost WAY more than the balances. Whats the point of playing a GAWWWDDDDD card if it can be removed by a little eldrazi flyer with a kicker cost? It just seems anticlimactic and lame to me. Keep in mind this is a salty scrub talking tho

One thing I've been interested in since starting playing MtG a few months ago was a creature that was literally impossible to remove. I didn't learn any of the rules and just jumped in a with a deck a friend bought me. One game I flipped my Westvale Abbey  Flip assuming I had won the game, just to be met by Bearer of Silence's kicker cost and instantly have to sacrifice my own supposedly 'indestructible' demon. This bugged me severely for obvious reasons, not just because I lost the game, but I would have won if I didn't sacrifice 5 critters to summon my demon. Indestructible suddenly didn't sound as intimidating as a win condition. In a discussion with a work friend who also plays magic, he told me that Progenitus can be destroyed by board wipes, because they do not target him directly. This triggered me because it literally says protection from everything, but not really? Whats the point of that clause then? Am i just a salty n00b who doesn't want interactivity in his card games? Please tell me the trufus, Rufus. Is there some combo that makes a creature literally impossible to remove by any clause, including exile, sac, wipes, etc.? If there is, I want to play it. I want you to stare at my card hopeless for any possible victory.
