    No. It only has protection from coloured spells.

    Only while it's on the stack. Spells only exist on the stack.

    Depending on which zone it's in, a card with the type "creature" is referred to as different things:

    - In your hand, library, or graveyard, it's a creature card
    - While on the stack, it's a creature spell
    - When it's on the battlefield, it's a creature (also, a permanent, just like everything else on the battlefield)

    As Emrakul, the Aeons Torn only has protection from colored spells, this means it is only protected from objects that are on the stack.

    A creature on the battlefield using any of its abilities is absolutely not a colored spell, and as such Emrakul has no protection from it. Likewise, any other card on the battlefield is now a permanent rather than a spell, and as such can easily affect Emrakul. This is why [c]Oblivion Ring[/c]'s triggered ability is able to target Emrakul and successfully exile it, among other things.

    This is also why I was able to put a Mind Control on my opponent's Emrakul with the help of Venser, the Sojourner that one time.
