Palisade Giant w/ Spirit Mantle attached to it, would none of your creatures nor you take any damage from creatures, not even Palisade Giant? Palisade Giant reads :Whenever damage is dealt to you or any creatures you control it deals the damage to palisade giant instead. and Spirit Mantle reads: Enchanted creature has protection from creatures.

Would that stop the damage of creatures that would deal  it damage and just deal nothing to it instead?
All of the damge would be prevented as it was replaced

How to autocard [card]Palisade Giant[/card] = Palisade Giant
Spirit Mantle

Protection from X means...
all damage from sources with quality X is prevented
can't be enchanted/equipped/fortified by permanents with quality X
can't be blocked by creatures with quality X
can't be the target of abilities with sources or spells with quality X

All damage that would be dealt to you or another permanent you control is dealt to Palisade Giant instead.  If any of those sources of damage are creatures, that damage is prevented.  Damage that is prevented does not happen: it is prevented.  Creatures with lifelink don't grant life.  Creatures with wither and infect do not put -1/-1 counters on creatures and you don't get poison counters.

Take note that if the damage can not be prevented, then Palisade Giant will take damage and have that much damage noted on it.

Excruciator will deal damage to Palisade Giant and Palisade Giant will die.

Rules Q&A would gain you the fastest response to a rules question.



Basically. All damage is redirected to the giant, and damage from creatures is prevented by the protectioin clause. Good combo. Now to just add Doran to make an unblockable 8/8 that stops all damage from creatures.

Take note of things like Excruciator, though.

All rules questions belong in Rules Q&A.

Unfortunately, VCLs do not currently have the tools necessary to take moderation actions directly. VCLs submit their actions to ORCs, who then actually perform the action. This processing can take between a few minutes and several hours, depending on how busy/attentive the ORCs are.

If you see something that needs VCL attention, please use this thread to make a request and a VCL will look at it as soon as possible. CoC violations should be reported to Customer Service using the "report post" button. Please do not disrupt the thread by making requests of either kind in-thread.
