Enchantment Protection

If my creature has protection from enchantments, does that mean I can't enchant it either? Or is it only enchantments from my opponent?
All enchantments.  If it meant "Protection from enchantments you control", it would say so.

Giant Growth is not an enchantment.  You couldn't put Holy Strength on the it though.
Protection from enchantments also prevents the damage from Pestilence/Pyrohemia, the creature cannot be targeted by Cradle of Vitality and such and cannot be blocked by Lucent Liminid or any creature at all if Enchanted Evening is out.

My second community draft, with the format being Zendikar/Worldwake/Rise of the Eldrazi, is now facing the Rise of the Eldrazi. If you like to draft, maybe check it out. We'd like to hear your thoughts on the picks.

My community draft experiment with DTK/DTK/FRF is concluded now. If you want to, you can check it out and maybe build some decks from the pools. I've already build my own take on that.



Once again aced the Rules Advisor test (Feb 2015). (I still make mistakes now and then, but who doesn't.)


"Simple questions" usually need rather complex answers, while complex questions often come down to no more than a simple "yes" or "no".


Enchantment is a card type. "Protection from Enchantments" means protection against game objects that have the type 'enchantment'. All damage from enchantment sources is prevented, it can't have auras ('enchant {something}') attached to it, it can't be blocked by enchantment creatures, and can't be target of aura spells or abilities from enchantment sources.

Pacifism, Oblivion Ring, Armored Ascension, Still Life, Lucent Liminid, Pyrohemia are all enchantments. Giant Growth isn't.

All rules questions belong in Rules Q&A.

I'm trying to make my official VCL posts in purple.

You posted saying my thread was moved/locked but nothing happened.

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.

Dual means two. A duel is a battle between two people. Lands that make two colors of mana are dual lands. A normal Magic battle is a duel.
