I run a white and red burn deck with an Arcbond and want to be able to save myself from taking damage but still have it deal the damage to everyone else.

Are there any white or red cards that could do this?

In what format? – Drunk Cynic Feb 27 at 6:40
Is there an enchantment version of this card? I would quite like to cast it on an indestructible creature and cause chaos with it... – ThunderToes Mar 3 at 16:54

Choose a card from your format, undefined, to give the targeted creature lifelink.

Genius. Or just run creatures with lifelink. – deworde Mar 3 at 9:47

There are a couple of common types of damage mitigation cards in those colors (primarily white): damage replacement effects and damage prevention effects. A search for damage replacement effects in those colors finds 3 cards:

  • Ajani Steadfast's ultimate ability says

    −7: You get an emblem with "If a source would deal damage to you or a planeswalker you control, prevent all but 1 of that damage."

  • Gisela, Blade of Goldnight has the ability

    If a source would deal damage to you or a permanent you control, prevent half that damage, rounded up.

  • Hedron-Field Purists can level up to gain the abilities

    If a source would deal damage to you or a creature you control, prevent 1 of that damage.


    If a source would deal damage to you or a creature you control, prevent 2 of that damage.

A different search for damage prevention effects in those colors yields another 18 cards.

Cards that I would suggest are Purity, Personal Sanctuary (when doing it on your turn) or maybe Runed Halo (naming the card you are going to cast Arcbond on)
