Truename Nemesis is mostly a cube card now. However, protection from players makes the equipped creature impossible to block without an artifact removal spell. I think it's bad taste to add a beneficial combat damage trigger to it.

Also, once again, in 1v1 gameplay, you yourself will be one of the 2 players, meaning your equipment, controlled and owned by you, will fall off the creature because it can't be targeted or equipped by your stuff as soon as it has protection from you, making it quite the useless sword.

The concepts are fun to speculate about, but I honestly can't see a nonbroken sword that gives protection from creatures or players making it to actual print.

legendofa I disagree with your assessment of why and where battles could exist. A challenge duel to become chief could be a battle. Boros legion suppressing a riot in the Undercity could be a battle. Conflict is omnipresent among living creature, and any physical violence could be expressed by a battle of sorts. That's how different subtypes would origin, I suppose, we could get a Battle - Duel or a Battle - Riot instead of all the Battle - Siege we've seen so far. But everywhere where's fighting, has a potential for a battle to take place, and to turn into a card. They seem marvelous for story highlights I suppose.

DemonDragonJ weren't you the one who absolutely had to see Squad in a Standard set? How do you rhyme that with disliking copying permanents?

Niko9 If you use Giver of Runes to give an equipped creature Protection from Colorless, all colorless auras and equipment would fall off. Protection prohibits being Damaged, Equipped/Enchanted, Blocked and Targeted by what you are protected from.

So if equipped creature had protection from artifacts, and it's equipped with an artifact, then the artifact would fall off. That's why legendofa mentioned auras like Benevolent Blessing that have a clause to protect the protection from itself.

I suppose "Protection from other Artifacts" could work.

I'm wondering how to equip a creature with a sword that gives protection from artifacts...
