Victory's Herald is not a bad card, but it is not going to win the game on its own the way other recent white power-cards can (e.g. Baneslayer Angel, Sun Titan, Hero of Bladehold).

I think its real strength is not its giving your creatures lifelink, but giving them flying. If you and your opponent have become deadlocked with strong board positions on both sides, then this effect can turn the tides completely. It is unlikely that your opponent will have enough flying creatures to avoid taking major damage, and the lifelink component means that you probably won't have to fear any lethal counterattacks.

Of course, you need to have a relatively strong board position to make use of those effects, so I can definitely see how it might seem like a strictly "win more" card for aggro decks that will probably already have a huge advantage by the time they can muster the 3WhiteWhiteWhite required for Victo... (see all)

this isnt bad. i think ppl just got too used to angels being completly BROKEN, so because this one isnt its getting a bad rep.

Most of the people who don't like this are probably thinking "blah blah blah BANESLAYER ANGEL blah blah."
The only problem is baneslayer is a $40 card, and who can afford that?

Wins games in limited. 'nuff said

Naw, you kids got this all wrong. If it works in EDH or limited, great. But this baby was designed for Two-headed Giant. Note that she doesn't just grant your creatures flying and lifelink. She also does some solid work against Archenemies.

For a bleak look at how this turned out, check out the art on Enslave.

Guys, I was at the prerelease last night & my 3rd round opponent was playing a really REALLY bad deck. On turn 6, I had 18 life & he had 9 life & 6 poison. My turn, I had 6 creatures to his 3, a 2/4 flier, two 1/1 myr, two 2/2's w/infect & a 6/6 after metalcraft & a c clasp for prolif. I swing with everyone. He blocks the 6/6, & both of the infected, he's down to 5 life. I prolif, he gets poison cntr #7 & loses a chump. His turn, he summons Herald & checks to me. My turn, I unsummon Herald, prolif & swing with everyone. He sacs a weenie to prevent most of the damage, shatters my clasp but not before he gets his 9th poison cntr & is also down to 1 health. His turn, summons accorder paladin & the herald, gives his creatures haste & swings with everything. I drop to 1 life point lose my infected creatures & he goes to 15. My turn, dead draw, swing for 5 & he wins the game. This card is a beast. Trust in that.

Their is a reason this is the cover card for the battle cry deck. Even alone the amount of damage and life cause this can cause is huge.

I like raptor better. It has a useful creature type and is just plain huge. And doesn't need to attack to grant lifelink. And has good art...
At least Dragons have Dragonspeaker Shaman and Dragonstorm. Demons have Blood speaker (and some other more crappy ogres.) Angels have nothing but people are still playing angel tribal decks, you see one every now and then. I say throw those nutjobs a bone and print an angel lord :D
