Re:About the Protected Icon
I think whether or not the PROTECTED icon is mentioned is down to space on card, clarity and similar issues. But that bit is definitely one of my comments with no guarantees as to its accuracy.
Last sentence above was definitely a good idea. Searching all the cards, the PROTECTED icon is mentioned in two cases
(a) When the card refers to icons, and (b) When the card refers to all cards, or all cards of a particular category. There are no current exceptions to (a), there is one exception to (b), Cast Cataclysm, and I don't know why.
