You serious? They are trying to slow the game down anyway. Baneslayer angel is way too strong.

This card has really awesome design. the art is also amazing.

As soon as this card was spoiled I ordered 4 for my Soul Sisters casual deck, if I were to have 2-3 soul warden/attendants in play and I were to drop an Archangel of thune essentially AoT would enter the battlefield gaining you 3 life but granting 3 +1/+1 counters to your army. and having that effect continue for every creature played after the fact makes you an impossible force to race.

One card that cracks this combo wide open without going infinite(-ly lame)? Storm Herd. If you had say 1 AoT and 1 Soul Warden and 20 life (Yeah right, LIFEGAIN!) you would receive 20 21/21 flying pegasus tokens and doubling your life. storm herd being 10 mana essentially would divide the cost as 5 mana for a Beacon of Immortality, and 5 mana for 20 21/21 flying tokens. And that's this combo at it's most tame.

Expect to see this card in Standard a lot more in the near future. Born of the Gods is pushing token generation even more, and White Weenie is a strong top-8 contender already. Hopeful Eidolon (1/1 Lifelink for W, Bestow of 3W) is amazing synergy with the archangel. You also have the new Oreskos Sun Guide which will net you 2 Life when it untaps.

She's right. The wicked do, in fact, have Nightmares.

This will work so well in an Extort deck! It's like a super Ajani's Pridemate

Spike Feeder.

That's all. A two card, hard to disrupt infinite life combo. Ba-bahm.

When she's not busy fighting and defending the weak against demonic hordes, she relaxes with a Chalice of Life...

Probably obvious, but Soul Warden plus things like Gather the Townsfolk. Each creature coming into play procs a different life gain effect, meaning for two mana, you're getting two 1/1 creatures, and a permanent +2/+2 on everything you own.

@ about70hobos Yes, each instance of Extort is a different life gain effect.

@SerGarlan
"Any card that has a build around mechanic should not be this expensive." I don't think she honestly requires much building around to be good by herself. Well costed, easily playable, excellent abilities. Just go ahead and equip her with her namesake's ring, Ring of Thune, or Lightning Greaves.
In my GW lifegain/elves I have pulled off this quite a bit:

T1: forest. Suspend Search for Tomorrow
T2: plains, greaves. (elves with haste are nasty, trust me if you haven't seen for yourself.)
T3: forest/plains, Somberwald Sage, equip with greaves, tap to play Essence Warden then Fyndhorn Elves/Llanowar Elves (all 3 if you get an ungodly good draw). if you do have both elves, a T3 tablet of the guilds is always nice, just amp's archangel's boosts even more.
T4: forest/plains, search's suspend ends so grab your choice.... (see all)

@KasaiAisu,
no. 1: I didn't use the word stupid, you did, sir.

no. 2: I was only commenting on the fact that SerGarlan mentioned a situation that is basicly "If I play AoT and do absolutely nothing and still decide to block a crappy card, it will die. If I play AoT and boost it a couple of times, I can block a card better than the crappy one and it will kill it. Hence, AoT is balanced"...this is obviously a falacy, mr. smart ass (look it up), it's like saying AoT is balanced because it dies to craw wurm if unboosted but kills akroma if I play a primal growth on it or whatever

no. 3: On the actual card, anyone who says this is balanced is insane. It is to lifegain decks what last year's sublime archangel is to exalted decks (maybe not as good). I don't mind a new archangel tradition on core sets at all, just saying this is a super card

no. 4: I've read the card more than enough times, thank you for y... (see all)

Archangel of Thune is a fantastic card. Whenever you gain life you put a +1/1 counter on all your creatures. I played it in an extort deck and it's a beast. It also works well with Angelic Accord and Soulmender. Also pair it with Angelic Skirmisher for a great combination. A truly under rated card.

@Kariuko

A 3/4 Archangel of Thune will lose to a 4/4 Serra Angel if no life is gained before. a 5/5 Baneslayer Angel will lose to a 5/6 (or larger) Archangel of Thune if played carefully and life was gained. Maybe read the card before calling someone else stupid? A thought.
