Silverskin Armor from Mirrodin Besieged might make a pretty good equip for her. Probably just as good as Whispersilk Cloak, but more accessible in draft. Silverskin will assist with metalcraft, of course, and make your angel a bit more beefy. Outside of draft there are probably better ways to defend her.

Allen Williams did a wonderful job making her look angelic and indomitable. Her color, posture, and location makes for a very dominant yet serene image. While more detail could have been added to the background, I feel like that would have only distracted from the focal point of the image. The shades and colors used are wonderful, but I'm still left wondering why such dark values were chosen over lighter ones...

I'm begining to wonder at what point a 4/4 with two good abilities for four stops being ahead of the curve, and starts BEING the curve. But that's beside the point.

With all these hyper-efficient angels (though this one being a little more niche than the others), I wonder when we'll see some efficient demons as counterparts? Abyssal Persecutor was a step i nthe right direction, I think, but I'd like to see some more demons with drawbacks to support otherwise absurd frames. Vampires seem to have been printed under the same design philosophy as Angels (that is, mid-sized and above the curve), but Vampires vs Angels just doesn't have the same resonance with me.

This card is a bit weak considering that artifacts are mainly useful because you can target them with hellish abilities, like adding counters to them, untapping them for super cheap, or returning them to your hand to throw out stronger artifacts.

However, artifacts are also subjected to a lot of hate, so that makes this ability pwn. Plus, sometimes returning artifacts to your hand is something you're like to avoid.

I dunno. It's pretty. And a 4/4 for 4 cmc with flying and a sinister ability. So yep. :D

Style points if you Enslave this creature.

Damn you angels! When are they going to print better Lammasu creatures?

Again too many people belittling a great card.

It's a 4 to cast flying that gives shroud to all your artifacts, this is the perfect card to paired with Stoneforge Mystic. Great for Control and Aggro decks that relies on Artifacts.

Been scanning many discussions on great cards such as Vengevine and others, and I've noticed a pattern wherein the really castable, practical, and good cards are bashed for their seemingly weak P/T numbers and simple effects/abilities, while those cards that rarely see play but have cool effects/abilities or great P/T numbers are given high props.

Why are the best cards belittled? This is unfair!!!

Ahead of the curve, protects your flimsy contraptions, and flies over your opponents army ftw?

Who cares about having artifacts? Just play that with Mycosynth Lattice and not only will you automaticly reach the Metalcraft condition, but all your permanents will have shroud, lands included.
