Al-abara’s Carpet is an interesting rare Magic: The Gathering card from Legends. This powerful artifact can prevent all damage your opponent’s creatures deal to you during combat as long as they don’t fly.
Al-abara’s Carpet – 5
5, Tap: Prevent all damage that would be dealt to you this turn by attacking creatures without flying.
Al-abara simply laughed and lifted one finger, and the carpet carried her high out of our reach.
A lot of people give flack to Al-abara’s Carpet simply because Moat exists in the same set and at the same rarity. The fact is that Al-abara’s Carpet is playable in any colored deck as an artifact. It also retails for a fraction of the price on the secondary market. So what if you have to pay five mana to activate it each turn? That cost is priceless compared to the game losing damage you’ll prevent with it.
You can ensure that your rival’s creatures can’t fly by making them all lose the ability with cards like Gravity Sphere or Mystic Decree.
