Play this with Wheel of Sun and Moon and nothing will ever go to your graveyard.

Like an automatic Blue Circle of Protection: Everything,
as long as you know how to keep it in play.
(Though it's a cheap enough cast to be useful even if you intentionally break it a few rounds later)

Play a Dovescape after this, and you're immortal
unless they're packing Krosan Grip,
Annihilators, or an enchantment-destroying creature.

Play Guile, then it's all over.

Who needs a $300 Moat? ;-)

I use 4 of these in my blue control deck. This is a very underrated and overlooked card. Since my deck has virtually no instants or sorceries, or cards that go directly to the graveyard for that matter, it is very hard to get rid of this card unless the other player has destruction cards. Even then, it makes a good stall, and has saved my life countless times.

This is an interesting enchantment.

Oath of Lim-Dûl might make an interesting combo with this, since this prevents any damage you might take... or not...

Someone else's Phage won't kill you. Her combat damage would be prevented.

Play Leyline of the Void and keep it out. Hosed by Leyline of Punishment.

A deck I was so proud to have built, but never once got me anywhere in a tournament. I can see that there are some new cards that could make my deck more efficient now, though, so I just might rebuild this juggernaut.

My old deck ran so many failsafes ... Jade Monolith, Memory Crystal, Capsize, Library of Leng, etc. But I can consolidate and play with creatures with shroud and wreck shop with my Zephid's Embraced Thran Golems.

I can so see this being "build around me". Turns out, so can many other people :)

amazing in a chronatog stasis deck . . . still amazing in other decks.
