There are several fun spirits with sacrifice abilities.
Kami of False Hope will let you fog every turn for example.
Kami of Ancient Law destroys enchantments.
Moonlit Strider will protect your angel AND it has soul shift!

I know a lot of people hated on the name of this card when it was first spoiled, but I just read the Planeswalker's Guide to Avacyn Restored Part 1 (http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/feature/190c) which mentioned another angel of "Flight ." From this I can tell that a flight is a group of these angels, and Alabaster is the name of that specific flight. Knowing this, I hope her name is cooler to people than they were previously giving her credit for.

That said, she can't go in any of my decks because I don't run enough spirits. But she's so great I'm tempted to just build an entirely new deck for her.

@ Hanksingle: Right, because 4/4 fliers with potential recursion abilities are utter garbage in limited.

Yay for Kamigawa block!!!

EDIT: I drew her during the Dark Ascension pre-release, but did not play her, now, at the release party, I drew her again, as well as Requiem Angel. I built a white/green/blue (some) flyer deck which netted my 8 wins in 10 games.

I never once managed to use her ability because many of my flyers were either not spirits or they were just tokens. But other than that, she won me two games as a big flying beater alone.

Oh, and in the German flavor text, this shy girl suddenly turns into a guy. :|

Credit to faisjdas for explaining the card's name. This doesn't exactly go well with my Dearly Departed, but it's still a pretty decent- for your opponent, just plain annoying- card.

Kamigawa spirits just got a lot better ...for kitchen table Magic.

EDH? Brings back Karmic Guide. To my hand, to be cast and thus trigger etb abilities.

This card is not ridiculous, but it is powerful. Limited, it's amazing. Constructed, well, we'll have to see. But I know I'm happy I've pulled two so far.

Quite an elegant solution to removal in Spirit tribe decks, fits well into my Black/White Orzhov deck.

Totally underestimated this card for limited. A splashable bomb that gives you sick card advantage, even if you only run a few spirits, whats not to love.
