“Progenitus” is a new card from the next Magic: the Gathering expansion “Conflux“. This card is good example why I am probably never going to play Magic. OK, I played it twice when a friend of mine showed it to me back in 1995, but this was after I started playing VtES. But still .. what about the color pie, Black vs. White, Blue vs. Red, a creature that requires all five colors? And then “Protection from everthing” .. how can you top a card like this? For me Magic has jumped the shark. I’m only waiting for the Ted McGinley card.
In the world of Magic “Protection from everything” means the following:
- Progenitus can’t be blocked.
- Progenitus can’t be enchanted or equipped.
- Progenitus can’t be the target of spells or abilities.
- All damage that would be dealt to Progenitus is prevented.
Progenitus can still be affected by effects that don’t target it or deal damage to it.
If VtES was more like Magic this would result in Caine .. a vampire with capacity 20, he has 5 votes, +5 bleed and +5 stealth and (naturally) has all disciplines at superior. He’s also immune to aggravated damage and doesn’t need to heal non-aggravated damage. If Caine is moved to the ash heap (from anywhere), he would be moved to your crypt instead.
So this is why I probably never gonna play Magic. That and the release frequencey, and the set rotation, and the cost, and Mythic Rares, and …
