The pacifism-like effect is a slang term used by Magic R&D to describe the effect that an enchanted creature cannot attack or block.[1] This effect is named after the card Pacifism from Mirage.

The effect is primary in white. It is one of white's strongest forms of creature removal for Limited, usually in the form of an Aura. It infrequently is used on noncreatures. Sometimes the spell also prevents that creature/permanent from using activations. It also sometimes only stops just attacking or just blocking.
