Emrakul has protection from coloured spells, this means that it can\\\'t be targeted by coloured spells. But, it can be targeted by abilities from coloured permanents, such as Seal of Doom.

These combos will destroy Emrakul in one turn, with one mana.

Combo 1 -- Dark Ritual + Seal of Doom

Combo 2 -- Dark Ritual + Chime of Night + Claws of Gix (Play both out and sacrifice the chimes)

Or, you can just play Chime of night on Emrakul, and that way, the annihilator ability allows you to sacrifice the Chime and thus kill Emrakul.

The only problem is that they could have Not of This World in hand.

A permanent or player with protection can't be targeted by spells with the stated quality and can't be targeted by abilities from a source with the stated quality.

seal of doom doesn't work. Mass removal works, as does forcing the opponet to chose to sac a creature. In the case of sac, like form fleshbag maurader, the target is the opponet, thus the protection doesn't apply.

emrackels stated quality is it is protected from spells-spells can only exist on the stack, when in the library or hands they are cards, when on the battlefield they are permanants which emrakul doesnot have protection from.

Chimes of night can not enchant emrakel unless you use some move aura shenagins which would be more complicated then whats listed

Make them sac it. If they have to chose a creature to sac, and they have only Emrakul, they have to sac him. Just make sure that the card says target player sac a creature, not player sac target creature.

Good point gericault5,
I forgot that the chimes can't go on the 15/15 directly. But enchanting
an ornithopter or some other minor creature would do the trick,
especially with annihilator 6.


The point stands, the enchantments can kill.

The enchantments can kill - or you can go with a couple of super old School creature removal tricks...

Icy Manipulator - Royal Assassin 

Or even funnier:  War Barge - Merfolk Assassin

Have fun.

Also, an effective way to get Emrakul out of your face......Jace, Mind Sculptor.



Use his 3rd ability to return Emrakul to its owner's hand. Emrakul has no protection from activated abilities.

Would using mind control then using swerve work

No because you need to choose emrukel as one of the targets. Which the protection prevents. However you can enchant mind control on 1 cdreature3 then use something like aura finnese to move it onto emrukel

Tariff {1W} |Sorcery| Each player sacrifices the creature he or she controls with the highest converted mana cost unless he or she pays that creature's mana cost. If two creatures a player controls are tied for highest cost, that player chooses one. 6E-R,WL-R,Vin,Leg,Cla,MIBC

 

Unless they can pay 15 to keep the Emrakul he's a dead man... obviously won't work if they get the extra turn and can bash your face first. If you put Oblivion Ring into play when they cast Show and Tell you can RFG Emrakul as well.

i found a way to kill emrakul with any 2/1 creature or better... and it stops the anihilator, (if timed right... which would be as they declare emrakul as an attacker)

It doesn't work because Emrakul has protection from all colored spells(abilities count). anyway, shuffled graveyard back into library; better w/ leyline of void

sumwun, read gericult's post. it's only a spell if it's on the stack.  if it's in play, it's a permanent.
