Note to everybody who's asking about activated abilities:

Activated abilities have the format (cost):(effect)
ex. (tap): add one mana of any color to your mana pool
Sacrifice a creature: Draw a card

always take note of the colons that separate the cost and effect

I love this card. The control possibilities are huge.

Save a Flame Slash to deal with her. Absolutely brutal to play against.

It won't stop annihilator, but it will slow a few decks down early to hopefully prevent you from having to deal with it later.

I am a bad person, this is my general

Was playing a 7 player EDH game, she died 10 times. Not sure what is worse, that she died that many times or I could play her that many times

Sswift- Correct. Even with shroud, activated abilities can't be used.

Things get messy when you can't use your colons.

People who use her may have missed the irony (or at least the lack of self-awareness) in the flavour text. This particular instrument of disharmony will draw EVERY kill spell until it stays dead, but the opponents won't forget that you tried to play it. Kind of a jerk card. Eat poo, white. At least blue mages know they're being antisocial. Also, this art sucks. What are you guys talking about? Ooooh! Another 'sexy' angel! Look! She has four wings this time! There is nothing unique or special about this image. Bland art style, dull background. (Sad trombone sound) 2/5 (less if we take the art into consideration) I'm not just trolling here. This is boring, stupid crap, but not the worst offender in that particular category.

For all y'all using Captain Sisay as a Commander/General: be cautious regarding incorporation of Linvala into your deck, as her presence provides opponents with "gain control" effects, especially Bribery, Gather Specimens, and Spelljack, a significant opportunity to reduce your deck's momentum through using your own Linvala to prevent Sisay from searching.

Doesn't basic lands texts say tap: add one to your mana pool?
Does this mean I can completely mana skew people:)

It's like Iona, except people won't try to stab you in the parking lot afterwards for using it. Quite killable, very good, on the whole appropriate.

Reminds me of Damping Matrix too. That drew a bit more hate however thanks to cost, and in the right deck is very effective.

Such a frustrating card against elf decks. It's not usually good enough to main board multiples of compared to other 4 drops, but a singleton can be effective against many decks. In my case, I was playing a game 3 on MWS, and the opponent wanted to swap decks - which I hate, as the matches are supposed to be best of 3 with the same decks to allow for variance. So I swapped to my elf deck, which generally punishes people for swapping to a counter-the-other-deck deck.

I didn't have the fastest hand, but after my turn 4 I was ready to Genesis Wave for the game next turn. He drops turn 4 Linvala, and I'm just like "really? How often do you see that outside of EDH, and yet here it is...". I conceded right there my only hope would've been to draw 2 additional lands and play the Eldrazi Monument in my hand, but even that probably wouldn't have been enough.

@Ctoaun14

Sorry, but those are mana abilities.

Good card, has a spot in my W/U aggro control deck.
