Lost Soul "Wicked"

Either there is a word or phrase missing in the text on this card, or I, like Bill Clinton, need to know the definition of what the word "is" is.  ;D

It reads:  "The special ability on the 1st evil enchantment you play each battle is regardless of protect abilities."  Is...what?  Seems like some word(s) are left out.  If not, and this is a new way of expressing the rules, where the ability "is" means it exists and plays normally, then someone should have mentioned this in the newest REG  or put "is" in the glossary of abilities or terms.   Or something.

In this instance, "is" is a linking verb connecting the subject ("The special ability") with an adjective phrase ("regardless of protect abilities"). But there is an additional adjectival phrase ("on the first evil Enhancement you play each battle") between the subject and the linked adjectival phrase, which muddies the waters.

"Regardless of protect abilities" means the ability can target cards that would normally be protected.
