I hear people saying this card is a bit "conditional" And for this, I've got something to say:

Step 1. Xenograft
Step 2. Angelic Overseer
Step 3. Trollface.jpg

I think you see where I'm going with this.

I think people's problem with this card is they can't break themselves of the horrible notion that angels deserve to be their own deck type, and not simply at the helm of a soldier/cleric deck.

This card is an absolutely amazing collaboration of flavor and effect - she is powerful, but not by herself; without her devoted, she is nothing. She doesn't belong with the other self-righteous angels that only care to consort with each other, she knows the place of an angel is to watch over and save mankind.

From MORT-al HOPE im-MORT-al POW-er SPRINGS.

Iambic pentameter FTW. Whoever you are, flavor text writer, Shakespeare is proud of you.

I really like how Wizards handled the mythics in Innistrad; they're balanced, but still powerful. This angel is a prime example. She's very strong, but only when built around. You can't just throw her into any deck with white in it and call it a day, the way people used to do with Baneslayer Angel.

When I saw Baneslayer, my first thought was "...Well, that's overpowered."

When I saw Angelic Overseer, my first thought was "Wow, that's cool-- time to make a Human tribal deck for her!"

In short, Overseer encourages unique & creative deck-building, whereas Baneslayer and its ilk (Titans, Wurmcoil Engine, Massacre Wurm, etc) encourage the exact opposite.

Luckily, Innistrad is a sign that things may be moving in the right direction. It seems Wizards may have finally learned that "mythic" should mean "unique, flashy, and build-around-me"... NOT "overpowered, play-me-in-every-deck because I'm Just Plain Better."

This is easily my favorite art and creature in all of Innistrad! There are many seconds, but this is first!

The tribes are intermixed again, it seems. Just like in Lorwyn.

It's okay, but it just doesn't feel "mythic" to me. Actually, I thought it was a regular rare and did a double-take when I noticed the orange expansion symbol.

This card with a playset of Student of Warfare and Hedron-Field Purists makes for some incredible field advantage, especially when you throw in a Baneslayer Angel and Akroma, Angel of Wrath right next to her.

I'm disappointed I haven't been able to get any meaningful use out of her yet. I played her for the first time today and won, but that was because I had a huge overrun with Garruk, the Veil Cursed. By the way he was the card that tutored me to her. Once I get some more meaningful play out of her I'll properly rate her.

I dislike the constant comparison to BSA. The mechanics of each are so different it is like comparing apples and oranges. Angelic Overseer is a combo piece while BSA is a stand-alone power house. I love this card though- a powerful and extremely flavourful addition to any human deck.

You know how you get rid of something Indestructable and Hexproof that is only so because you control another creature? You don't!

The Cons: It's not baneslayer, needs humans to be relevant

The Pros: In the right deck, you'll nearly always have humans. Survives divine retribution. IT WON'T DIE.

I, personally love it.
5/5

Kind of cool but not quite mythic-power. What happened to Angels pwning everything?
