Shadowbane {1}{W}

Instant

The next time a source of your choice would deal damage to you and/or creatures you control this turn, prevent that damage. If damage from a black source is prevented this way, you gain that much life.

Light creates shadow; light destroys shadow. Such is the transience of darkness.

Notes and Rules Information for Shadowbane:
  • This only prevents damage the chosen source would deal to you or a creature you control. If the creature would deal damage to another player, a planeswalker, or a creature you don’t control, it does not get prevented. (2008-08-01)
