Seems like an okay card. The level up cost is a bit to high though.

level up should have either let you get better abilities than a Serra Angel, or as good as, but for less total mana. If first level was 3/3, this would have been more playable. The problem is, level up as a mechanic is like the aura card type: its got some innate disadvantages built into it, since your opponent can just wait for you to pay the level mana then blow you out.

Hero of Destiny was good at every level. Most of the level guys sucked until they were all the way leveled. I think the only one that saw any constructed play was a Mythic Rare- Kargan Dragonlord. If there were others, I didn't notice them.

Don't worry, Knight of Cliffhaven. One day, you'll be a Serra Angel.

When looking at level-up cards, particularly those meant to see combat, just look at how good it would be if you left it at level one. This, for instance, might be expensive to level, but a 2/2 for two with a good tribal affinity is nothing to disregard.

Even though this card isn't the greatest, it saw a lot of casual play among my friends! And, like any level up creature, it did exceptionally well with a Training Grounds.

Drop this as a 2/2 for 2. Swing for a few points, then level it up when your out of steam. 2/2 for 2 is well behind the curve for constructed though, needs like 2 abilities to make par.

Do not think of this as a 14-mana Serra Angel. That's an easy mistake to make. Sure, it's not quite as good as the old standby, but Venerated Teacher and Time of Heroes can help this guy out. Not good on its own, devastating in the right deck.
