can o-ring target emrakul?, alot of people here in my country says that o-ring will be cast first as an enchantment, then after it resolves its color will be disregarded and thus can target emrakul which has protection from colored spells.. i really dont get this, can anyone shed some light here?

It's a little odd that they left out the flavor text on the Planechase printing.

I found that 3 O Rings and a Sigil of The Empty Throne works very Well, First play Sigil, then play your first O-ring, targeting whatever on the field. Next turn, play the second O-ring in the first, removing it from the game, and returning whatever was exiled. Finally play the Third O-ring on the which would bring back the first O-ring, which you use to target the second and so one and so forth. Unlimited Angels until you change one of the O-Rings Targets to something else.

Tricky, but playable with Barren Glory.

I'm not as impressed by oblivion ring as others I've talked to. It is a handy utility card, but I'd rather play removal than temporarily remove a card with an enchantment. If my opponent has any way of destroying oblivion rings, the whole strategy is just a waste of enchantment cards. Bant charm, maelstrom pulse, and aura shards comes to mind. Its still a better version of pacifism, if nothing else, but then how many pacifisms have you seen in any mainstream deck lately.

@farming

Nah they're just messing with you. An enchantment is a spell and this one is white, therefore it cannot target Emrakul. See you choose a target when Oblivion Ring enters the battlefield not after. You can argue this to them as well as the key word here on Ring is TARGET, and i'm pretty sure the ruling for protection reads that this individual may not be TARGETED by stated colour/colours/whatever. Anyway how can the colour be disregarded? Colour is like the underlying theme of the whole game, their argument seems stupid to me.

Thanks for listening.

@Orim-s_Thunder Look at the protection video from Wizards of the Coast at this link:

You can clearly see that oblivion ring is specifically cited (at 6:52) as NOT being able to target Black Knight (who has protection from white). Emrakul has protection from colored spells which, the last time I checked, includes white, which includes oblivion ring.

All things considered the best spot removal ever printed in my opinion, right up there with vindicate.
In a multiplayer game awhile ago I did it like this -

Turn 2 - I cast energy field.
Turn 3 - I cast Oblivion Ring exiling my energy field.

Then late game, an opponent saw I was mostly tapped out and attacked me with everything he had.
I responded by tapping my Vedalken Mastermind and one Island, returning my Oblivion ring to my hand, returning my Energy Field to the battlefield, rendering me impervious to damage.

Even without any cards to synergize with it, O-ring hits any nonland permanent. So as long as your opponents play artifacts, creatures, enchantments, planeswalkers, or token-creating cards, this will always be a welcome draw.

The O-Ring is nice because it can exile any permanent. Plainswalkers, artifacts, creatures, enchantments, or tokens. Sure they may get it back eventually, but this card can definetly buy you some time. Always in my sideboard.
