Pretty nice fog, especially considering Suppertime's comment.

The arcane part seems useless in a monowhite deck tho, nothing useful to splice out.

@Vedelken_Arbiter: The card does not mention Combat Damage, It says damage dealt by creatures.

This prevents ping effects such as that caused by Quicksilver Dagger. This can stop combos that revolve around a creature pinging, or a big nasty that has alternate effects when it swings or defends.

But, to answer your question directly, Combat damage is reserved strictly for damage dealt by creatures, but only during the combat damage step, and only as a result of blocking, or not being blocked. So it is nearly impossible for a permanent to deal combat damage if it is not a creature.

I could imagine a number of scenarios that can cause this card to be cast as part of a triggered effect during the combat damage step. Then I could imagine a number if effects that revert a creature back to a former state after it's damage has been calculated, but before the game leaves the combat step. These situations involve triggered effects destroying things that create creatures f... (see all)

@Vedalken_Arbiter: How can they? Non-creatures don't have Power and Toughness.

Yes, it does prevent the non-combat damage you would deal as well, but riddle me this:

Does white have a whole lot of pingers? No. No they do not.

This card is an absolute golden blast of awesomeness, fairly costed, powerful, and with a subtype that opens the way to a plethora of shenanigans. Everyone else can stop complaining, this is far superior to Holy Day or Fog.

In mono white, this is about as boss as fog can get. The ability to prevent not just combat damage, but ANY damage from creatures can be invaluable in the kind of deck that runs this.

As for fog effects in general, I prefer Constant Mist. It can't prevent non combat damage, but it's recyclable by itself (+ land, too). Reusable fog is the best kind.

This is... almost strictly better than Holy Day.

In fact, the circumstance where it's not is almost non-existant. Wow.


Plus, it's Arcane. There's plenty of awesome spells to splice onto this.

Strictly better than holy day, fog, and its friends. It is arcane and helps spirit decks, you can splice other things onto it, and it stops pinging and devestating creature abilities like Flameblast's. 5/5.

This is far superior to Holy Day because if a creature would deal damage, IE Flameblast Dragon, Ethereal Haze nerfs that

It sure can be a better alternative to Holy Day, especially in Spiritcraft/Arcane decks.
But you can't call it strictly better though, because your pingers won't be able to deal damage either.
This card prevents any kind of rape - Little Girls are save from those sick Prodigal Sorcerers when this is cast.
