Nope. Definitely didn't get hit right on the head from a Blightsteel Colossus right now.

Uh, no? Last I checked, the source of damage in Pestilence is the enchantment itself, not the single instance of the ability activating. That's why protection works against it, you know. Since protection works, the source has to be black, and since abilities come FROM sources, and are not sources in and of themselves, this card would actually be fairly effective in such a deck.

But that's a rather limited scope, really. It might be handy with some other goodies as well, probably a bunch of shenanigans to do with it, but I wouldn't use it personally. Better alternatives, I think.

Buuut~ While it's true that Pestilence remains the source of the damage, unless they activate it all at once they can just let the 1 damages resolve one by one until you cast this spell, at which point they can do the rest of the activations in response, letting you block a grand total of 1 damage with this spell.

Excellent Vs Pestilence type effects.

Actually NOT excellent vs Pestilence, because each activation of the ability is a separate source of damage.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
