Not strictly worse in the strictest sense, as this costs only 1 white mana and Serra Angel costs 2 white mana.

Although it's outclassed by better cards like Serra Angel and Shepherd of the Lost, it's still costed pretty fairly. I mean a 3/3 with two relevant abilities for 5 with low colour weight is fine.

I prefer this over Angel of Mercy anyway.

Let's do some consideration...

A bad 5 mana angel -> Starlit Angel.
A good 5 mana angel -> Melesse Spirit, Angel of Light.
A very good 5 mana angel -> Serra Angel, Shepherd of the Lost, Angel of Flight Alabaster.
A too good 5 mana angel -> Baneslayer Angel, Angelic Overseer.

Nice flavor and artwork, unfortunately strictly worse than Serra Angel (which isn't strictly worse than Baneslayer Angel, per se, due to vigilance).

This is the type of angel I envision. Very solid.

Strictly worse then both Serra Angel and Shepherd of the Lost. Especially considering they are all uncommons. 1/5

Five mana? I'll take a Baneslayer Angel instead.

Someone please explain to me how on earth this is a $10 card. Scarcity is one thing, but being good is another thing as well.

Great art, very splashable and relevant ability. People have to compare it to other 5 cc angels and its not fair since the other 5 cc are different rarities. The closest one would be to Angel of Mercy who is also a 3/3 but gains you 3 life. You are essentially trading 3 life for vigilance. Whereas unfair to compare this to Serra Angel and Baneslayer Angel. Remember this card is meant to be in a Starter set, for new players to learn and undertand Magic.
