I don't think people give this enough credit. Yes, it "dies to removal" even more than your average creature does, but there are plenty of ways to protect it, especially in M11. I drafted one of these in a mono-blue control deck I put together and they couldn't even touch it.

Maybe i'm a bit biased, as this is the first mythic rare I ever opened, and it was shiny, too.

So if you have zero life, you still can't lose with this on the field? Wow, that's pretty awesome! I bet this would go great with Death's Shadow out there, no drawback! Turn Aside would also be great to defend this with, or even better, some enduring protection like Swiftfoot Boots or Alpha Authority

The drawback of this is that it doesn't stop opponents from pursuing their win conditions. You'll have to deal with it eventually, of course, but in the meanwhile, you can just keep on attacking or burning or milling or pinging or whatever it is your deck does. I much prefer Platinum Empyrion: It might not help against alternate win conditions like poison or mill (shame that it's in the same block as Infect), but against the majority of decks that win via damage, their progress is halted completely until they get their removal. Plus an 8/8 body is more useful than 4/4 flying: It's a bit harder to kill on its own, and will help you get your win.

I see this as part of a trifecta combo.
Platinum Emperion, Darksteel Forge, and this.
Emperion makes it so your life never runs out, Angel makes it so you can't lose, and Darksteel Forge makes sure neither is destroyed.
And then you can just do as you please.
