It would have been cool if WOTC had made Heliod female as a subtle reference to this card. I haven't read much backstory about Theros, but I don't see why this wasn't possible. Another missed opportunity. Too bad.

@the sensei,
"Comically bad compared to Celestial Archon"

Umm ... you're comparing a common to a rare. 99% of the time, this is the sort of result you'll get. Sip of Hemlock is worse than Extinguish All Hope. Nullify is worse than Mana Drain. Grizzled Leotau is worse than Fleecemane Lion. There is nothing surprising about these comparisons, and it's rarely appropriate to make them.

Aura's cannot be creatures by a rule standpoint.

When an aura becomes a creature, it can no longer enchant

When an aura is no longer enchanting, it is sacrificed as a state-based effect

thats why licids are the enemy of rules template teams lol

The foil version of this card makes me horny.

It costs more because it's an enchantment? Maybe comparing it to Serra's angel is unfair, but Zendikar's five-drop angel has vigilance and first strike to boot, and is easier to play in multicolor decks.

Best to combo with Mesa Enchantress and Sigil of the Empty Throne.

It's an enchantment creature. Dudes, it's an... Enchantment. Creature.

I don't wanna really spend time thinking of how that can be useful, but when something is unique... It's worth existing, has a niche and is a good card. Even if it does suck, it does what it does better than anything else because it's the only thing that does what it does.

This is really cool. Useful? Probably not, but still cool. I would have charged four for it. There just aren't enough combos for it to be worth that much mana.

agree with gilgiga, 2WhiteWhite would have made a lot of sense.

Imagine if they made an Enchantment Creature--Human Aura. Actually, I think that would be impossible. I don't even know how this would work.

Really good card in Limited, harder to justify playing over Serra Angel and others. Fun in Enchantment decks.

Average power at 3/3 flier for five cmc, and the fact that it dies more often than most creatures definitely outweighs any shenanigans you can do with it for me. Plus, if I wanted to build a deck around enchantment creatures, there's other stuff I'd rather use, like the ones from Urza's that turn into creatures under certain conditions.
