A: Indestructible is not an ability. The words "ColorlessRedEnergy is indestructible," is an ability.
Aegis Angel holds the ability, so if you Turn to Frog on her, her target would become vulnerable.
I think.
I'm sure about the first part, not the second.

Using Turn to Frog on her target will not remove it's indestructibility.

@NoobofLore: Now that Indestructible is a keyword ability, Turn to Frog and other "remove abilities" cards will make Aegis Angel's target vulnerable.

Combos with Aegis Angel

@Darth Parallax: Because Avacyn, Angel of Hope makes all of your permanents inderstructible, herself included, you think she's strictly better? Phew, I am getting tired of people throwing out the term strictly better. Aegis Angel costs 6, Avacyn costs 8; if you want something in play quicker than Avacyn, Aegis Angel is better. Aegis Angel has {W}{W} in her cost, Avacyn has {W}{W}{W} in her cost, making Aegis Angel easier to play in multicolor decks. Avacyn is legendary, so she dies to the legend rule, including from Clone effects, a decent enough number of which don't even target so giving Avacyn shroud or hexproof wouldn't save her where Aegis Angel wouldn't die from that. The two are better in different situations against different metagames, so saying one is strictly better than the other is strictly wrong.

Both fit into a Kaalia of the Vast Commander deck, because Kaalia is only a 2/2 and she really likes to swing for ... (see all)

Every time I played this card at the pre-release (sealed), she won me games. With a Stave off to protect her from the first kill spell, I usually had the game in the bag after that.

How has no one mentioned Spellskite? This gal protects Spellskite from being destroyed, while Spellskite protects her by making any removal that doesn't say "exile" fizzle.

Also, non-standard combos! Play Dual Nature then this, resolving Dual Nature's trigger first. Make the token protect the original, and the original protect the token. Enjoy having 2 indestructible 5/5 filers.

Also, Followed Footsteps. Each new Angel comes into play protecting the Angel that came into play the turn before. Angels protecting Angels? ANGELCEPTION.

Part of me wants to use this to protect the phylactery of a Phylactery Lich. Not very efficient, given how color-intensive PL is, but the idea makes me giggle.

If you are wondering about the name, "aegis" is Greek for shield.

@MasterOfEtherium- That's either the cleverest thing you've ever said in a comment or one of the dumbest. It's a shame that I just can't consider a world where you say something clever.

Nice card- especially with the aforementioned spellskite combo. Should be fun in EDH too- you can never have too many ways to keep your general around.

It is a great support card, I've tested it with Darksteel Plate . Can take a serious advantage when comes the Wrath Of God.
