Safe Passage returns in this year’s Magic: the Gathering 2011 Core Set M11.
Safe Passage – 2W
Prevent all damage that would be dealt to you and creatures you control this turn.
Safe Passage is a nifty combat trick that can easily turn a game of M11 limited in your favor.
Suppose an opponent has several untapped Mountains in play and attacks you with a Fiery Hellhound, Fire Servant, and Conundrum Sphinx.
Your only two creatures in play are Siege Mastodon and Serra Angel. In a normal situation you are sure to take four or five damage (depending on how you block) and up to four creatures would die. Your opponent would still be left with a creature in play, however you’d have no blockers.
In this situation Safe Passage will not only save your hide, but give you control over the battlefield. Safe Passage allows you to block and kill both the Fire Servant and Conundrum Sphinx with Siege Mastodon and Serra Angel living to tell the tale, and you won’t take any damage from the unblocked Fiery Hellhound. In this instance, Safe Passage really reads 2W, Destroy two target attacking creatures.
Becasue of potential plays like these, Safe Passage deserves a high consideration in when drafting M11, and should be a mian deck in your sealed pool.
Safe Passage is featured in the Magic: the Gathering 2011 Core Set Blades of Victory Intro Pack.
