Whispersilk Cloak the aura version.

Auras that provide protection to the enchanted permanent are MUCH less likely to give your opponent card advantage, since they will have to destroy the enchantment before they can destroy the permanent, rather than destroying both at once. Granted, shroud isn't the best for this, due to the vulnerability to non-targeted effects, but it means they'll have to use such an effect, and card advantage after a board wipe is usually unbalanced anyway, it might turn in your favor if you force them to use it as removal.

A good way to protect your best fatty!

Expensive, but I like it in EDH. Hold some counters for the 23 wraths everyone else has...

Slap it on Kiln Fiend and laugh. If it had flash, it would be amazing. As it stands now, it's pretty good.

Good card. Give it to your big ones and watch them wreak havok.

I would love to agree with you, Atali. But the fact is, it still isn't shrouded until it resolves. The aura still can get you 2 for 1'ed with instant speed removal as does most auras. It does block the sorcery speed stuff, so it does deserve some credit, but even then, many of the sorcery speed removal spells ran are the nontargeted ones (Gatekeeper of Malakir, Wrath of God, Pyroclasm, etc...)

Hate to be the "Dies to removal" guy, but that's kind of the point of this. To protect the creature. So far, Totem Armor seems to be the best way to do this with Auras and their blatant weakness.
