So as most everyone knows that cards like Sword of Feast and Famine and the rest of the sword cards are all pretty expensive. But if you are just looking for protection from two colors and not the added abilities then I may have found a decent (not great) alternative with Shield of Duty and Reason , Mask of Law and Grace , and Crown of Awe . All of these do give you protection from two colors but don’t have any other added effects and unfortunately they are only enchantments.

Depends why you want protection.

Stopping it being targeted? Lightning Greaves , Swiftfoot Boots , Mask of Avacyn , Whispersilk Cloak .

Making it unblockable? Whispersilk Cloak again, Trailblazer's Boots , Prowler's Helm , Infiltration Lens (kinda)

Want it to survive damage? Darksteel Plate , Hammer of Nazahn , Shield of Kaldra

Those are just some of equipments btw, theres more than I can remember off the top of my head, and also theres about a trillion enchantments that I can't really help with without knowing colours (I mean your prolly white but idk).

As for doing all at once, besides whispersilk theres not much; which is prolly why the swords are so damn expensive. However, these aren't colour restrictive, which is nice

Bear Umbra Can fill that role in a way. Gives you the land untap of FaF and totem armor gives it protection in a different way
