Protection not Working Properly
I had on the board an "Alseid of Life's Bounty" and an "Ajani's Pridemate".
The opponent attacked me and I blocked with "Ajani's Pridemate". Before damage, I used Alseid's ability to give my Pridemate protection from the color of the attacking creature.
Even with protection, my creature suffered damage and died, while Protection is supposed to prevent any damage caused from sources of that color.
No screenshot was taken because I didn't have enough time to do it.
I had same problem happen today. How is this still happening.

Exact same issue as Fezzy. Several times now. Thought at first I had misunderstood how snow sorcery works and it had something to do with that but sounds more like a bug.
This happened to me today, and I lost because of it. How is this bug STILL not fixed?
I had a Yawgmoth, Thran Physician (Protection from Humans) blocking a Burning-Tree Shaman (Human Shaman). The opponent played Embercleave on the Shaman and it killed the Yawgmoth. I understand I should have received two trample damage, but the Yawgmoth should have survived.
My issue is similar. An opponent cast Inscription of Abundance to make his werewolf fight my Katilda, who has protection from werewolfs, and she died. Her being targeted by the instant makes sense, but the damage should have been negated. No effects negating damage prevention were in play.
Same boat here. I used "Sejiri Shelter" to protect against Black "Blood on the snow" but still my creature died.
I had this same problem several times today with the protection given by Gods Willing. First it failed to protect my creature from damage from another creature, and then in another game failed to protect my creature from a board wipe. Cost me both of those games which I would’ve otherwise won
Today, May 21st, this happened several times within one game. One instance of Basri's Lieutenant dying after blocking a Brushfire Elemental, and later using Alseid of Life's Bounty to give a creature protection from red, but said creature dying in combat whilst blocking a red creature.
I just had the same problem with Sejiri Shelter and I lost the game.
Hello, it's me again. The world keeps spinning but Alseid is still not working properly. I am done with this. I have lost so many games because of this bug that at some point I just removed Alseid from my deck. But, of course, this does not make any sense as I have the right to use it.
I wonder if people are really reading this but I will say it for the last time: Either this bug is corrected or I will leave the game for good.
Yep i keep dying to board wipes while protected from the respective color. Always loses me the game, thanks.
This continues to happen. I gave protection to my Luminarch from Black using Alseid but it died anyway after my opponent played Crippling Fear. I am starting to be sick of this of bug. Please correct this or I think that it is just better to leave the game.
Same here with a creature dying after blocking a pelt collector even though I gave it protection from green.
Same thing here! My opponent launched a Doomskar (Destroy all creatures) and I sacrificed my Alseid to give protection from White to my Luminous Broodmoth but it died anyway. Very annoying. After that, I had to resign this important match.
Similar situation. I had a Lurrus and an Alseid in play. Opponent had a Questing Beast and 2 other creatures. He used a fight spell for the QB and Lurrus. I used Alseid and the Lurrus survived the fight. Opponent went into attacks and I blocked the QB with Lurrus. My Lurrus then died while still having Pro-Green. Lost game by a turn because of that.
Same thing happened to me. My opponent had Lovestruck Beast attack. During his attack phase he used Ram Through to destroy my Righteous Valkyrie. I respoded with sacing Alseid of Life's Bounty giving Righteous Valkyrie protection from green. He responded with using another Ram Trhough on a differend Righteous Valkyrie that I had on the board. So what happens the first Valkyrie gets protection, does not get damaged by the spell and used it to defend myself from the attacking Lovestruck Beast but for some reason died from it. No screenshot sadly.
Had a "Basri's Lieutenant" and blocked a 5/5 Brushfire Elemental. Although Lieutenant has protection from Multicolored it died to combat dmg.
Fun fact first round he attacked and I blocked and it didn't die. So: Sometimes protection works and sometimes not.
Not yet solved. It Just happenned to me against a Stomping Giant with Embercleave, giving protection from red with Alseid
Can confirm protection is not working. Opponent attacked with a mutated Anguirus, Armored Killer (mutated on top of Scavanging Ooze). Blocked with Hushbringer and sacrificed Alseid of Life's Bounty to give Hushbringer protection from green. Hushbringer took full damage and was destroyed. Log is attached.
This is still an issue. Any feedback from the devs on when this will be fixed?
