Considering how many ways there are to achieve multiple landfalls in a turn, a play set of these in your deck allows mass flying token production starting at just 4 cmc. Heck 2 of these in play with something as basic as evolving wilds gets you two birds for what is essentially a 1 drop. Plus you just slimmed down your deck giving you a chance to draw something decent with your next draw trick. And if your really worried about removal spells why not try giving it shroud? A well timed safe passage keeps the angel and your chump blocking bird tokens and you alive for at least another turn. This card is almost newb proof.

Well there are actually no real rules that tell how an angel has to look like. I for my part like the artwork, that's angel enough for me.
Also, "not too expensive" is understated - it's a 3/3 flyer for four mana with an awesome ability!
It's only double-white colored too, and i'd play it over Luminous Angel most of the time.

Luminous Angel costs seven mana. Seven. Including an extra white over this. It has only +1/+1 over this. It does not have the ability to make multiple flyers in a turn, in exchange for a slightly more consistent turnover rate. The bigger angel even makes tokens of a slightly less relevant creature type. Luminous Angel used to be considered good. Stop complaining that this card could be better. You think you'll have trouble keeping your cards alive? In white? What? Silly Gatherites.

Yes, this is 100% solid, and very much over the curve. Even if she bites the bullet, no doubt you'll have fetchlands waiting in the wings to give you more than your card investments worth. If you know what you're doing, you're never left empty handed here. Hell, drop her by turn four in an aggro-control, and you'll generate enough tokens to put anyone on a serious clock. By herself. Doesn't a four mana win condition mean anything to anyone?

I run this and rampaging baloths in a landfall/token deck. Harrow, Khalni Heart Expedtion, Oracle of Mul Daya. The endgame is usually this + beastmaster ascension, swing with many 9/9 beasties and many more 6/6 birdies. Possible names for this deck "The Birds and the Beasts"..."Birdie and the Beast"...

It's great that she gives you Suntail Hawks, but with a 3 Toughness she is kinda weak. Gotta beef her up to survive.

The artwork could be better (angels and thongs don't really go together) but I love the mechanic, and she's not too expensive either. 4/5

This card took me to fourth place at the prerelease (with some assistance from Day of Judgement), which says something since I only started playing when M10 launched (the first games I played were under M10 rules, I was at the prerelease before I went to FNM).
