Simply THE BEST card for Avacyn Restored limited. There is no card pool, be it in draft or in sealed, in which this does not automatically make your main deck. It can be played regardless of what else is in your deck, thanks to being colorless, but most importantly - it fuels itself. With so little removal available in this limited format, it's very difficult to stop Avacyn's signature weapon from taking over the game. Every attack you make with the spear, even if it's a suicide run, gives you a 4/4 flying creature (to which, conveniently, you can then equip the spear, and then you have a 4-power first strike creature untapped and ready to defend).

Simply awesome while the likes of Puresteel Paladin, Grand Architect, and Brass Squire are still in Standard. After that...eh, still awesome, but very slow. I'll be playing it while I can for cheap!

I heard this was to be the promo at the pre-release..... Decent card.A bit slow, but it'' s at least playable in any deck you want as opposed to the dark ascension promo, where you NEED to have humans in your deck to play it.

Great for combination with Soulbond ability. A 4/4 angel token with flying is pretty good on it's own, but they're also great for pairing. A lone unpaired creature with Soulbond equiped with this can pair to the angel token as soon as it attacks, and some of those effects are really nice on a 4/4 with flying.

Essentially what The_Trendkill said. Played it in the prerelease and it took me from a losing position to a winning position in one attack, twice no less. It's simply 'cause you get a 4/4 flyer for basically nothing. Gonna Righteous Blow my suicide 1/1? That's fine, I got a 4/4 ready to attack next turn. It was the star player of my deck in the first two rounds.

Even if they can kill the creature this is equipped to, it drops an angel you can equip it to next turn. And the next turn. And the next turn.

Moonsilver Spear, Tatsumasa the Dragon's Fang, now we just need a demon token equipment to complete the set for Kaalia.

Useless in Constructed, unbalanced and frustrating to play against in AVR Limited. A definite mistake by R&D.

Equip this on Geist of Saint Traft, or use with Puresteel Paladin for laughs.
