I find it strange how this has been moved to uncommon, after having been THE white rare creature everyone wanted (with the permission of Exalted Angel) back in the days when I was playing, 10 years ago. That was also when Shivan Dragon could still be seen kicking about. Back then, under-costed creature cards with respect to their abilities, like Spiritmonger, were rarities.

Now they're rampant in every set Wizards puts out (esp. this Return to Ravnica block). Now you get silly, extremely OP creature cards for the same cost that are better and come with no drawbacks. I'm sure most of you will know it's Baneslayer Angel and Thundermaw Hellkite I'm talking about (not to forget Thragtusk).

It didn't bother me too much since I mostly play Black, Blue and artifacts. But then came Obliterator. Awesome card, yes, but it doesn't require you to... (see all)

In honor of being reprinted for the 5th Core Set in a row, I've taken the liberty to gather all Flavor Text throughout the years:

Born with wings of light and a sword of faith, this heavenly incarnation embodies both fury and purity.
Her sword sings more beautifully than any choir.
When she flies above the good, they consider themselves blessed. When she flies above the wicked, they consider themselves dead.
Perfect justice in service of a perfect will.
And the current: Follow the light. In its absence, follow her.

I wanna see this clash with Serra Spider.

A travesty that Baneslayer Angel has the same mana cost, new players will clearly choose Bane over this classic. But this card is a model of design, it is costed right for its powers, has flavor out the wazoo, and is a legend within the game. This is the standard by which all angels should be judged. Alas, I'm afraid she's slipping, which is a crime, really.

The "angel next door".
No matter how much more assets the new angels have (Baneslayer, Angelic Overseer, etc.), we guys would STILL want this one over those :D

Welcome back, oh one of beauty. :)

It's probably the most famous card in the game, and it's still good even now. Sure there are better angels, but Serra's only uncommon now so even folks without money to spend can have a couple in their white decks.

5/5 just for the nostalgia.

Suck it, you insanely overpowered mythic, you.
