The synergy with Invisible Stalker is interesting, but I don't like how she dies to an equal cost Black Sun's Zenith. I want this chick to be good because she's really formidable looking and bad@ss, but I guess time will tell.

At the pre-release, I got this out with an invisible stalker. There is almost no way to beat that if your opponent can't get past the stalker's hexproof.

White Blue will definitely make it through to the next standard season. Between this, Invisible Stalker-wielding a Sword, Grand Abolisher, Fiend Hunter, Geist of Saint Traft, blue's new draw spells, Mana Leak and stuff, expect another year of WhiteBlue.

She's the only 5-drop angel out there that can say "I can kill Baneslayer Angel and live to tell the tale". That's damn impressive.

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

Extremely less broken version of BSA. While it could get pretty ridiculous, there's enough that can take it out without much work. I love this card.

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.

I have this card but I have a Question.
If Angelic overseer becomes a human itself and there isn't an other human on the battlefield, does her ability work?

Really, really love the art. She just exudes dignity and invincibility. I don't mind (AT ALL) the game's usual pattern of letting the angels slut it up, but this is a great change of pace.

Brotip: Play in human decks. No, really, why the flying f*ck is everyone complaining how it's abilities are "conditional"? Let me tell you why: because otherwise it'd be just plain stupid. Oh, I suppose you want to throw in "unblockable" as another keyword ability, too? Is nothing enough?

This angel is flavorful, fun and has a noticeably big rack. What is there to complain? If mythics didn't have any drawbacks at all, or would be ridiculuously OP, then people would be blaiming Wizards for making them powercreep. All I can say is that they did a fine job on this card.

It has an evasion, is practically invincible, BUT IT DOESN'T FIT TO EVERY GOD DAMN DECK. That's what a good mythic is all about, to me at least.

PS: Yes, I did happen to pull one just two days ago from a booster pack. Will be making a human tribal deck, just because of this card. And one Elite Inquisitor, of course.

This card and Angel of Flight Alabaster are my two favorites of this Innistrad bloc, even more so than Garruk and Liliana

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."

Someone at the prerelease today cracked a booster, which contained two of those (One in foil) and a Garruk. It was astounding. We figured, that the chance of opening three mythics in one pack was around one to 46 thousand.
