Step 1. Play true name nemesis.

Step 2. 'I declare True name Nemesis has protection from myself'.

Step 3. Confuse your opponents as they try to figure out why you did that, when there really is no reason.

Looks like this is part of a cycle: the first commander product had Sewer Nemesis.

Commence operation: Drown in Sorrow. (Damage, he shrugs off. Untargeted toughness reduction, he doesn't shrug off. Now, is there room for that card in Legacy?)

My first rating of this card was 5/5. I thought that this card was exactly what my Merfolk deck needed. Then, after playing with (and against) it, I revised my rating to 0.5/5, simply because of how frustrating and uninteractive it was. After some consideration, I've decided to change my rating to a much more reasonable 4.5/5. Yes, this card is extremely difficult to answer in Legacy; only board wipes like Toxic Deluge will take it out. However, it's not meant only for Legacy. In its intended format — which is to say, Commander — it's an efficient but easily-dealt-with creature that is a great political tool. Don't make my mistake and rate simply based on the card's merits in eternal formats. It's meant for more than that, and should be rated accordingly.

Didnt read the reminder text at first and figured this would be the equivalent of hexproof. Couldnt figure out why everyone said it was so good/broken.

Then I realized it gets protection from their creatures too. Alright, its good. It's a bit better than invisible stalker because of the global damage thing and blocking, but it also costs {U} more.

Then I realized it has 3 power. This card is dumb.

pox players couldn't care any less about this card because of innocent blood, smallpox, pox, liliana of the veil, etc who gets around protection..

i can imagine a resurgence of pox decks, i can see pox players dusting off they're old pox decks when decks running true-name nemesis becomes rampant..

I put my one in my legacy merfolk. It is stupidly powerful. 3 attack power, unblockable, cannot be damaged or targeted. Usually I have a lord of Atlantis down already so its a 4/2. Its not fun. At all. It is un-interactive, very aggressive and works in a powerful tribal. I hope we never see more cards like this one. This is not fun for anyone.

"This card is not playable in any formats." First time I've ever seen that on a card.

the price for this thing right now is hovering at around 40$. Y'know, about the same as the 100-card precon he comes in. Seriously, people.
