Tried out a deck with her and Emeria, the Sky Ruin, and the interaction is just great. Still gets removed by path and o-ring, but the board is yours to control otherwise -- nothing goes down without your say-so :)

This is a very solid card in casual play. If you have the spare mana, combining it with Planar Cleansing can pretty much leave the board clear for free swings with whatever other fatties you saved when the world blew up.

Also, her outfit makes a lot of sense, frankly. What else could she get on over all those wings? I love the seraphim-style wings, too. It would be great to see more old catholic/gnostic imagery on white cards, since it looks so distinctive.

When I first got this card, I will honestly admit that I was kinda indifferent towards her (largely because I got Iona the same day). However after playing several games with her, I've grown to really enjoy her. Easily my favorite white card, although tied with Leyline of Sanctity.

This card seems so incredibly powerful when compared to the recent spearbreaker behemoth, costing a mana less and working on any creature.

Yes there are a lot of answers to this creature, but this is the same set with vines of vastwood (allied color) and emerge unscathed.. you really shouldn't have that much trouble protecting it.

Consider indestructible baneslayers for just a moment, let that sink in, uh huh.

Not a half bad Angel. Can be used in a few Mono-White combos to create devastating effects.

I thought this was a great card when I first saw it, just by her raw stats. A 5/7 flyer for 6 is excellent, giving her the ability to block even Titan-class monsters without even needing to use her ability, and she's still capable of punching in an evasive 5 damage. But, her ability requiring WhiteWhite, rather than 1White, eventually made me have to take her out of my R/W deck. I just never had enough white mana to use her ability when I needed it, unless I was already in a situation where I was winning.

She's still a fantastic card, but she's nowhere near as offensive as I needed her to be. Playing her just didn't have the impact I needed, and protecting my creatures for WhiteWhite a piece just ended up being too expensive for my two-colored deck.

It's sad, that this is such a great card, but in an environment with Titans, Baneslayers, and other mythic creatures, she just wasn't up to par.

Of course, I ended up placing her in my mono-white EDH deck, where she turned out to be just as awesome as... (see all)

Another solid angel. The ability is useful (especially if the battlefield is about to get wrathed) and she makes a great defender.
On the other hand, the comments section here makes me sad. And people complain about the lack of women playing Magic...

When an angel walks in with an itty-bitty waist and puts that round thing in your face you get
SPRUNG...wanna tap some white mana....oh baby I wanna get witcha...and take yo picture.
Don't be hating on the hips. Some of us grown men dig that stuff. Oh yeah. Nice ability too.

I love this card. She's tough for a rare and the flavor is amazing. Her ability makes your creature nigh-invulnerable but not too much for me to cry broken. Unfortunately she doesn't protect from Annihilator; hopefully I won't have to face Eldrazi decks in casual any time soon.

As for the art, I think she's fine. The background is bada$$. If anything, this card should be a good example of why even angels don't always need skimpy clothing - there are plenty that don't but still look sweet (Battlegrace Angel, for instance). Nonetheless I find it odd that from the same fans of Magic I hear cries that women in skimpy clothing is cliche and dumb and that the art of a woman that doesn't fit your vision of beauty shouldn't be printed on a card. To be honest it makes fantasy (and Magic players in particular) fans look like the horny geeks we get a bad reputation for.

Basically, play this car because you like her cost and her ability; if you don't, then don't play it.... (see all)

This is what Kefka's final form would look like if... everything is switched.
(yes. I just made a FFVI reference)
