Well, I definitely know who I won't be playing Primal Cocoon with.

Okay so was having a little trouble understanding a ruling that was posted as part of the CoTD on the MTG homepage for Feb 1, 2011:

Melira's Keepers – Mirrodin Besieged uncommon. From rules manager Matt Tabak: The damage a creature with infect deals to Melira's Keepers won’t result in any -1/-1 counters, but that doesn’t mean the damage is prevented. If that creature has lifelink, its controller will still gain life. If that creature has deathtouch, Melira's Keepers will be destroyed.

Fortunately the MBS FAQ spelled it out:

* Melira's Keepers can't have any kind of counters placed on it, not just -1/-1 counters.

* Damage from a source with infect has no effect on Melira's Keepers. No -1/-1 counters are placed on it, and no damage is marked on it. The damage is still dealt for purposes of effects that care about damage, such as lifelink.

* If Melira's Keepers would enter the battlefield with a counter on it, it simply enters the battlefield without that counter.

* If a creature w... (see all)

From Doug Beyer's Column:
Dear Doug Beyer,
Regarding your article "Public Displays of Aggression":

An interesting thing has just intruded on my awareness: Mirrodin has Melira's Keepers, but no Melira.

When we met Keeper of Kookus in Visions, we also found Kookus. When we journeyed to Alara and discovered Keeper of Progenitus, we were overawed by Progenitus. Every other Keeper or -keeper in Magic keeps some *thing*, but this one appears to keep some *one*, who is yet unrevealed. Who IS she, and why does she need keepers?

Jay, your eyes observe much. Keep them open. There's more about Melira to come later in this block. Interestingly, Melira's Keepers are green, while many of the creatures of the green-aligned Tangle fell quite readily to Phyrexian influence. Hope from the forests after all?

'Kay, now all we need is a Whispersilk Cloak and we're set for murdering anything in our way.

This is going to be great to get out in drafting.
Since every other card has infect, it'll be great defense.
Only problem is the big 11/11 trample infect indestructable.

Winning with infect is going to be hard if your opponent lands one of these and you are low on the proliferate effects. The only creatures with infect i can think of that this guys doesn't kill when he blocks them are Phyrexian Vatmother and Phyrexian Hydra, the latter of which it can kill the next turn. That is excluding, of course, the riBONKulous Blightsteel Colossus.

hope to see a anti-infect, phyrenix butt kicking Melira as a legendary princess warrior or something cool. :) these flavor really keeps me intrigued with magic!
