As can be explained by looking at this(http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/eventcoverage/gpchi09/blog2#5), you will note that the circles of protection have the wording "choose", or "choice". This means that the player decides the recipient of the effect. It is not targeted, so permanents that have shroud or some variant thereof can be affected by them. "target" is not required in a card such as contagion clasp.

This is one of best thing's the Tezz deck could get hands on. Simply throw this and Everflowing Chalice. Have Chalice tap for mana and than use Clasp ability to charge Chalice. Gets ridiculous if also Tezz is on the board. Simply do whats writen above THEN use Tezz +1 ability to untap and repeat. Congratulations you Tezz got +3 loyalyty on one turn....Not counting Pentavus and other stuff.

Still....big bro Engine just do better.

I find the distinct lack of the word "target" in the reminder text of this card extremely... disturbing.

We need a ruling here!

Pretty good. It provides a means of adding counters, you affect any number at the same time, and the -1/-1 counter is useful anyway.

Uhm, loyalty counters, anyone? Being able to drop Jace and use his last ability on the same turn is now physically possible, provided you have the mana and ability to untap a proliferating card.

Scars is going to be all kinds of stupid broken. I mean, what if they bring back modular? Not to mention how this speeds up planeswalkers.

Not legal in any format! It must be good! haha j/k.

What if they bring back modular? They aren't it was all kinds of broken.

Having to pay the 4 mana to proliferate is what makes this thing balanced, I think.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
