Oh, you are not playing multiple colors in your deck? Then all of my soldier are unblockable this turn, my friend.

The white lightning bolt? (not functionally, just playable-ly)

Its because BTE costs one less than bathe in light, and radiance also affected your opponents. so lets say you were running boros, and decided to BTE for red and do Blasphemous Act, your creatures would be safe. and your opponents boned. if i used bathe in light and my opponent was also running white. they would be safe from blas act as well. brave the elements is just an improvement in every way. lower cmc and one sided for you.

@evenblackerlotus : If a creature has protection from something (let's say white), it means it can't be targeted, enchanted, equipped, damaged, or blocked by anything white. Unfortunately, Day of Judgment does none of those five things, and so Brave the Elements won't save your guys.

I know, it seems silly that Protection doesn't cover getting DESTROYED, which would seem to be the primary concern of being "protected"...but hey, that's what Wizards decided long ago. (Also, I just don't think it would feel right if a mere creature with protection from a color could live through the Wrath of God or the Day of Judgment.)

Zinvampire, the simple explanation is: Creatures with flying fly over creatures without flying. So while the creature on the ground may have protection from the flyer, it is not able to reach to block it.

Protection on a creature, protects that creature in many ways, but it does not protect the player from threats that evade said creature.

If you read the rules for flying and for protection, you will see that they reflect that concept.

Remember how terrible Blue had it in Zendikar Block?

This card should be called "How to spend one white mana the right way."

Protection would be completely broken if it covered field wiping as well as everything it already covers.

If WW is still viable (which, it should be) then this card will be huge.

Evenblackerlotus: Brave the Elements wouldn't protect your creatures from Day of Judgment.

So now win conditions cost White and only $0.25

Did this yesterday in a casual game with my girfriend
T1:Plains, Elite Vanguard
T2:Plains, Veteran Armorsmith
T3:Plains, Veteran Swordsmith
T4:Plains, Veteran Swordsmith, Brave the elements in response to her Unsummon, swing for 12 unblockable
T5:Oust on her Merfolk Sovereign, Brave the Elements, swing for 12 unblockable. I left one of my Swordsmiths untapped in case something happened and I didn't win.

It was a turn five win using only cards that costed 2White, WhiteWhite, White, and I only attacked twice.
This card is broken in my opinion. Protection from chosen color in general is broken in my opinion. It's why I love it, because most people don't realize it's awesomeness. Oh, play Emerge Unscathed instead if you are only splashing white though.
