Notes and Rules Information for Runed Halo:
  • If a player has protection from a chosen name, it means three things: (2018-12-07)
  • Runed Halo gives you protection from each object with the chosen name, whether it’s a card, a token, or a copy of a spell. It doesn’t matter what game zone that object is in. (2018-12-07)
  • Runed Halo doesn’t give your permanents protection from the chosen name, only you. (2018-12-07)
  • You can still be attacked by creatures with the chosen name, even though they won’t deal combat damage to you. (2018-12-07)
  • You’ll have protection from the name, not from the word. For example, if you choose the name Shapeshifter, you’ll have protection from anything named “Shapeshifter,” but you won’t have protection from other creatures with the creature type “Shapeshifter.” (2018-12-07)
  • You must choose the name of a card, not the name of a token. For example, you can’t choose “Saproling” or “Marit Lage.” However, if a token happens to have the same name as a card (such as “Shapeshifter” or “Spark Elemental”), you can choose it. (2018-12-07)
