Very nice sliver although a bit of an expensive casting cost. I suggest this sliver used with Crystalline Sliver for best sliver protection.

good sliver but not the best to high of mana cost and it is only a 2/2 i would think it woul be a 3/3 for its mana cost plus if theres a ghostflame sliver or a colorless creature your in trouble

Ever since the inception of gemhide sliver, I have found that dropping crystaline sliver (heresy yes I know) in favor of these has prove more profitable. Its still a potential turn 3 drop that gives you unblockability, and an easy time defending (realistically it does), protection is under rated imo, especially this card.

5 Mana is not hard to pump out if your sliver deck is decent.

despite it's high CMC this still seems incredibly underrated. in most circumstances it will serve the purpose of crystalline Sliver, shifting sliver, and make them perfect blockers too.
it might cost a few more mana but it serves as 3 cards, one of which doesn't actually exist.

Wrath of God does not work because protection only protects those creatures from being targeted. M@ss removal does not target, it simply destroys everything, similar to Damnation, Plague Winds, Akroma's Vengeance, etc.

Totally worth the cost. Protection encompas$es not only color-hosed shroud, but also unblockability and damage prevention, which are very powerful a$sets on a creature deck.

This card is pretty much broken. Once you play this, many decks will be rendered entirely impotent.

I have to say, when building a Sliver deck, this card is a must. Other cards I would recomend would be Crypt Sliver, Shifting Sliver (because generally you won't be playing against another sliver deck), and perhaps Muscle Sliver and/or Sinew Sliver (the timeshifted version of Muscle Sliver).
