Darksteel Ingot M14

Darksteel Ingot

Indestructible is a static ability that means that any permanent that has indestructible cannot be destroyed, and cannot die as a result of lethal damage.

Indestructible was recently changed into a keyword, meaning that cards which said "CARDNAME is indestructible" were changed to simply have "Indestructible". Previously, a card that had become indestructible and then lost all of its abilities would still not be able to be destroyed.


Andrew controls a Darksteel Ingot,( which the worst card ever) which Nadine wishes to destroy with her Naturalize. However, because Darksteel Ingot has indestructible, the Naturalize is unable to destroy it.
