Protection from Tarmogoyf for White that can change to Protection from Merfolk for White without any pregame adjustment? Sounds good to me. One of the best 1cc defenders in its color, if not the best. (Hard to say. Wall of Hope is different enough to make strict comparisons impossible.)

Cards like this and Mother of Runes give certain White Weenie builds a fighting chance in Legacy. Not much of one, but better than none... Mother of Runes is even more essential in Zoo, because the protection you need may very from turn to turn. Understandably, blocking Tarmogoyf and surviving a Lightning Bolt and dodging Path to Exile is not something Order of the Stars initiates can train for :)

Wizards should print a defender critter with "protections from spells and permanents with converted mana cost 1" with casting cost WhiteWhite, call it Agile Mentalist, and give it "You may play Agile Mentalist ... (see all)

@Salient: Make the cost of Agile Mentalist {1}{W}{W} instead. Otherwise it goes down to Spell Snare!

Out classed? Perhaps for those protection decks that are useless unless they are against a particular color. (I hate those)

Anyway, this card practically has troll shroud against mono decks. I should have ordered a play set a long time ago. Even their flavor is nice... I love this card.

I love this card. Against most decks, it's basically an indestructible blocker on turn one.

It's like they wanted to join the Orzhov, flubbed it, and made their own secret club to feel better about it...

A nice customizable Wall, can serve as an effective barrier against many decks, however certain cards outcla.ss it, such as the later Burrenton Forge-Tender...

Definitely a very underrated card.
