Other means any other perm, even if it has same name. With 2 of these out at once, the only thing that your open too is wrath spells. Great card for any mono white, mono green, white/green, or 3 colored decks. Worst case senerio this just takes away one more o-ring or something that wouldve killed something else, and best case senerio it locks down your enemys strategy and he concedes. Gota love the 1 card lockdown stuff

Two of this + Leyline of Sancticy is a lot easier to get out than a combination of Spiritual Asylum, Sterling Grove, Heath Spirit and Fountain Watch. Also, add Glacial Chasm + Power Conduit + random artifact that uses charge counters + some (cheap) repeatable lifegain and you're pretty much invincible, except for untargeted effects like Apocalypse.

Phenomenal card. One of these out and your stuff is largely untouchable. Two of these out and your opponent(s) will be struggling to find a way to remove it.

This is one of those cards that's good for making you into a passive participant in the game, possibly even overlooked in multiplayer. While everyone else is attacking and flinging spells back and forth you can set yourself up with this card, Leyline of Sanctity, and something like Island Sanctuary, then essentially check out of the rest of the game while everyone else kills each other and then decks themselves.

Great for screwing over decks that rely on cards that target individual permanents to win.

Has the potential to make a lot of the cards in opponents' hands worthless.

Also, Privileged Position + Sterling Grove = Awesome.

One of the best shroud-based cards in the game.

two permanents of the same name are 2 permanents, that in this case CAN protect eachother

and either green OR white for this come on a speed deck with elves would dominate w/ this and overrun

i play with two of these at the same time and all my permanents cant ever be targeted

some one rated the card under 5 stars!!!!

It may cost 5, but if you play a greater aurmancy with it the two protect eachother, making all your cards have shroud, and aurmancy costs 2. I do have both of those cards though I never got a second privileged position. The only thing to remember is when either or both are in play, you can't enchant a creature more than once since it gains shroud from auramancy to your own spells as well afterwards. Not disimiliar from elspeth's ultimate except its shroud instead of indestructibility.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
