As with most big angels, she belongs in a reanimator deck. Which is sad, you know. Pure white angels being played by majorly black decks.

For this reason I have her in a slow angel themed control deck and refuse to stick her in a reanimator deck.

@BaconRadar - You could think of a pure white ream deck. Breath of Life Resurrection with some self mill or discard agent. Throw in some defence and walls u got urself a deck.

Breathtaking art and captivating flavor text. Great creature but difficult to hardcast. 5/5

She's the first Angel creature that I bought back in the days of Invasion. I love this card. I use it in my Animator deck. Buried alive and they all rise one by one.

Obviously this card isn't designed to be hard-casted...

I tend to run a copy in every reanimation deck I build, just because it fits the theme so well. Only problem is that it's almost always better to directly reanimate the creature that'll lock my opponents down or kill them that turn instead of reanimated the Reya and waiting for her ability to resolve the next turn. Blazing Archon, Iona, Shield of Emeria and even Voidstone Gargoyle are all creatures I tend to pull out before this girly, even if she can pull them out a turn later herself. That turn is a doozy.

I think the old art with the uplit radiant "O"-face and spread legs was a little bit hotter as well. Love the short hair. She seems more tranquilly afterglowing in this picture. Angels in miniskirts is such a nice thought.

A nice card, she just cost so mana. I have the Duel of the planeswalkers game and I have not gotten a chance to summon her because I usually defeat the enemy (or lose) before I can draw her.

No, the kicker only takes effect when you pay the cost. You only have the opportunity to pay the cost when you cast the spell. If you have a way to cast it without paying its mana cost then you can pay the additional kicker cost and the kicker will take effect. If you just put a creature into play you're not casting it so you can't even pay the kicker cost.

Rules question to everyone: If Reya brings back a creature with a kicker cost that was kicked before it went into the graveyard, does the kicker effect on that creature apply when it is put back on to the battlefield?

Edit: @SwordofKaldra

Thanks, the reason I ask is I was playing the Duels of the Planeswalkers game and Reya reanimated Kor Sanctifiers which I had countered earlier. They destroyed my Platinum Angel losing me the game, I wondered if I didn't fully understand kicker or it was just the game.

I worry about casting cost when looking at instants sorceries enchantments and artifacts.
this is a creature.... you don't even NEED white mana to play her...
I'm tempted to replace debtor's knell with her in my mono black deck just to prove my point.

after all why spend 7 mana on an enchantment when I can spend 3 mana and a sacrifice (that she will soon make up for) on a creature.
