Having a Magic card in your pocket at all times to keep your game tight is ironically delicious.

Combo with Abyssal Persecutor.

I agree with herpdaderp, do it all the time. I cant epic fail with a platinum angle at my side

Played a game where they had this out with a Darksteel Forge and Alpha Authority.

Odric, Master Tactician + 4 Sidewinder Sliver.

Odric really is a master tactician...

Thunderbolt this as soon as it hits the field. Enjoy your opponent's face.

It's not the greatest, but sometimes your opponent just can't deal with it. And when that happens, lol.
Also, this card has found its way into my friend's wallet to avoid losing The Game. Yes, that Game.

This is the kind of card that should be printed in the core sets. Core sets are supposed to teach players things; specifically the need for removal and bounce spells, and the fact that even if nobody ever uses Platinum Angel, you have to assume they do.

@ntheawsome: Into the Core says hi.
@VampireCat: If the angel is your only creature, then Gatekeeper of Malakir says hi.

It's tempting to try to come up with a way to protect this so you really can't ever lose, but it's also very, very hard, most likely impossible. The best I can come up with is the following:

Darksteel Forge to make it indestructible.
Leonin Abunas or Indomitable Archangel to give it shroud.
Mycosynth Lattice to make your shroud generator an artifact and therefore also indestructible (plus all the rest of your permanents for that matter.)
Tajuru Preserver so you won't have to sac it.
Treacherous Link so that any damage that still manages to be dealt to it isn't, even through anti-prevention effects (negates Everlasting Torment/Hurricane or similar, as well as ... (see all)

Your opponent can't win the game.

5/5, no more discussion necessary.

Abyssal Persecutor, Asceticism, 2 Darksteel Plates, and you've got yourself a draw.
