indestructable is too cheap because there is very little around it and it is too cheap for the casting cost too. But this the sword and the helm is all that i will be using from all this for the most part.

Noobishness abounds... It's not the best card ever, but find another one that makes any creature indestructible... You people must not understand the definition of "originality". I can't think of how this card can be anything but original.

Am I to understand that indestructable is not worth it? Good ability with a high price and 1 of a kind card (for better or worse).

Shield is for the desperate, the cowardly, and the Angel-hounding. By Angel I mean of course Miss Platy. The desperate person can at least stall out his demise with this, and the cowardly weenie deck trying to keep its Serra from facing imminent destruction will find shelter with this. The weakest of the Kaldra items, IMO.

This is the worst of the three Kaldra equipment cards, but making any creature indestructable and having a part in creating the avatar legend are well worth the cost.

Ahh. the steel croisant. A fun card to be sure, but costed a bit high, so not really playable in a deck that wants to take the winning option seriously.

This is one of the better equipment cards in my opinion. The ability to make ANY creature indestructible is amazing. Now, to analyze the complaints people have given for this card.

Originality: Like it or not, this is original. The definition of originality is "something which possesses unique traits or qualities that make it stand out as something new and exciting." Name me another equipment card that is indestructible itself, AND makes the equipped creature indestructible. Due to that, it has originality.

Casting cost: It's highly manageable. Anyone who argues that it's too expensive either needs to accelerate their mana, or get their lands out faster.

Artwork: Not bad. It isn't the greatest piece of art I've seen, but as far as shields go, it's pretty cool looking. Now, as for the person saying "how can it make you indestructible if there's a hole in it?" Before you ask any more foolish questions, turn any of your cards over and read the print on the back very carefully.... MAGIC the Gathering. It's a magical shield, dummy. =P

regardless, great card. Word to the wise though, if you ever play it on Platinum Angel Buy, your friends will hate you.

I wouldn't necessarily say that this is better or worse than Diplomatic Immunity. Since D.I. is an enchantment with shroud that gives a creature shroud, it's almost impossible to get rid of unless someone is running global enchantment destruction. That, and it only costs 2 mana.

Overall though, Indestructibility is considered a "better" ability than shroud (hence higher mana costs on indestructible permanents. Shroud prevents anything from targeting a permanent, including your own spells. Indestructibility makes a permanent damn hard to get rid of, but still allows you to manipulate it with your own spells.

Both are good cards, but for different reasons.
