Protection from everything

If Progenitus would be put into a graveyard from anywhere, reveal Progenitus and shuffle it into its owner's library instead.

Abaques on WOTC announcement - All Commanders …

For a fun one, Jegantha, the Wellspring and Progenitus.

Or how about going with Sliver-geddon and running The First Sliver and Sliver Overlord.

Or, because Urza, Lord High Artificer really needs access to all five colors, run him with Urtet, Remnant of Memnarch

Or perhaps you're just an evil person and you run Sakashima the Impostor so you can get a second Grand Arbiter Augustin IV on the battlefield.

Another pairing for those who hate their friends would be Maralen of the Mornsong and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled.

DemonDragonJ on Which Card Should Replace Pain …

3 months ago

legendofa, that is actually a good point to consider, and I believe that it should not be too difficult to have a creature with 20 power in this deck, considering that Progenitus is already a 10/10 by default, but I think that I should wait for several more responses, before I make my final decision on this matter.

FormOverFunction, I almost put Titans' Nest in my The Mimeoplasm EDH deck, but its activated ability is slightly too strict in how the mana that it produces can be used.

Actually, how badly do I need Crystal Ball in this deck? It is a nice card, but scrying is rarely as good as direct card drawing, so, if I do not need that card, I can put both enchantments in the deck; does anyone else here think that that is a good idea?

DemonDragonJ on Which Card Should Replace Pain …

3 months ago

I have a copy of Pain Magnification in my Progenitus EDH deck, but I intend to replace it, as it is a fairly useless card in that deck, and I am currently considering two different cards as potential replacements for it: Black Market Connections and Mayael's Aria, as I believe that either of those cards would be a far better match for this deck, but I am not certain which of those two cards I should choose, so I certainly shall appreciate the feedback of other users, here.

What does everyone else say about this subject? Which card is the better replacement for Pain Magnification?

A more reliable way to play this deck would be to have your only creature being Progenitus, and then using Polymorph on a creature-token to cheat it out. Not sure if this blows your budget though. I’m just aware your current plan is super fragile

Heir to Progenitus

Legendary Creature - Avatar

You and other permanents you control have Protection from Everything.


It takes its place as the ruler of the shards.

I sense a reanimator deck in the near future...

So if the Child of Alara is the heir to Progenitus, then Progenitus must die at some point. Make a card showing this.

I know its kind of silly, but I feel Progenitus would feel right in a deck like this.

legendofa on Why Does WotC No Longer …

There are only fifteen cards with some variation of this text. One pops up every few years, with a cluster from 2009-2012 covering Progenitus, the Eldrazi Titans, and Worldspine Wurm. There was then a six-year gap to Nexus of Fate (which may or may not count for the question, since it's not a creature).

I'm not sure it's officially stopped being a mechanic. It's just used infrequently, and usually to denote a creature of apocalyptic power with an equally apocalyptic mana cost. If they have fully stepped away from this text, it's in favor of rewarding the card being cast, like the BFZ/OGW/EMN Eldrazi Titans, Apex Devastator, or The Tarrasque.

DemonDragonJ on Why Does WotC No Longer …

Several creatures, such as Serra Avatar, Darksteel Colossus, and Progenitus, have an ability that at first seems to be beneficial, but actually exists to prevent players from intentionally putting those creatures into their own graveyards and then reanimating them for far less mana than what it would cost to cast them, but WotC has not put that ability on any creatures in recent years, so I wonder why that is; did WotC decide that intentionally putting powerful creatures into one's own graveyard and then reanimating them was, in fact, a perfectly legitimate strategy? What does everyone else say about this?
