Painter's Servant changes all cards not in play and all permanents, so effectively everything. Only way around it would be things that give protection without targeting, like Brave the Elements or Akroma's Memorial. Some cards specifically give protection without removing themselves as well, like Spectra Ward or Pentarch Ward

And in fact that will happen with any auras you control that grant protection from their own color, such as Flickering Ward or Floating Shield (if you choose white). While these auras contain clauses or rulings that specify that they don't cause themselves to fall off if you choose white, if the enchanted creature gains protection from white in any other way, including Concerted Effort duplicating the protection from white from those auras, they will fall off as a state-based action because the "this effect doesn't cause this enchantment to fall off" clause is not copied over, same as with Pristine Angel's "must be untapped" clause.

This also applies to Spectra Ward. Even though it doesn't cause any auras already on a creature to fall off, you can't add new ones afterward, and Concerted Effort will give the enchanted creature another instance of "protection from all colors," which will make Spectra Ward fall off.

In short, Concerted Effort is basically a non-bo with many protection-granting auras.

If you do decide to use Palisade Giant, play Spectra Ward.

Shits hilarious!

Greater Auramancy, Sigarda's Aid, and Sram, Senior Edificer are all auto includes for your deck I think.

And here are some cards that I think would go well in the deck:

Quick build! I laughed at the title; you nailed at.

From your list, the deck seems to function as an enchantress deck, but do you think adding in some voltron elements would strengthen it?

I think some protective ones like Spectra Ward and Bear Umbra would work well while buffing her. Angelic Destiny packs a good punch there too.

[email protected] I thought the same thing until the first time someone gave me protection from a colour and then it lost all its auras. Protection means, amongst others, that it can't be enchanted by that colour. Hence cards like Spectra Ward which get around the effect. Hope this helps.
