Baneslayer Angel tries too hard
Posted By: Jake1991 (5/27/2010 5:16:20 AM)


I don't agree that Baneslayer Angel dominates this card. Vigilance + flying is what makes it hard to defend against the Serra. BA is certainly an impressive creature, especially for the cost. However, there are definitely situations where you'd want the Serra in play over BA.

Baneslayer Angel is okay, but try running her in the Stasis decks in which Serra was the only win condition. Not strictly better.

By the way, we want the old art for Serra Angel.

Three cheers for Serra, none for Baneslayer!

My favorite angel with great artwork. And yes I like it more than baneslayer angel. Why do I like it more? Because Serra is now uncommon while baneslayer is mythic. I rather spend 5 bucks on a playset of these other than hundreds on an overpowered set of mythics. Serra has never been a bad card and its still a force to be reckoned with.

In my opinion this angel is harder to kill than Baneslayer Angel because this has vigilance just like Shepherd of the Lost, it means that these 4/4 or 3/3 with first strike can also be used defensively when attacked. Even if bankslayer has lifelink it can't be played both to attack and defend and frankly you'r a fool if you pay $50 for a Baneslayer Angel when the shepherd and serra are bountiful in the 50 cent boxes. There is nothng I love more than whipping out a combo of Royal Assassin followed by Burst Of Speed to send someone's $50 coaster straight to the graveyard

Yes of course we can all spend hard earned 200$ and spend it on a playset of Baneslayer Angels. I don't think playing magic is a profession. Just get the Serra Angels dear god, people.
If you come across a Baneslayer in a pack well good for you, I can just grind it's dust with a Malikir Bloodwitch.

Still awesome in limited. In constructed she hasn't been used in a long time, it's not Baneslayer Angel's fault. Funny though, she's an uncommon and I haven't pulled her, even though I've pulled three Liliana Vess, three Elvish Archdruid and three Silence. Shortprinted?

Serra Angel is a very worthy card for any white deck, and amazing for an Angel deck. While it is true that this angel has since been outclassed by Baneslayer Angel, I feel comparing the now-uncommon Serra Angel to a $40 mythic rare is a little unfair. Many players, especially newer ones such as myself, might recognize how great Baneslayer Angel is (is it a coincidence that the initials are BA?) and yet still be unable to afford such a card. Serra Angel is much more obtainable, particularly with its rarity that allows it to be picked up quite easily. With her abilities, she should have at least a 4 easily, but I'd say even a 5/5.
