Congratulations, you can now cast Avacyn, Angel of Hope for WWW! :D

But seriously, good card. 5/5

Kaalia of the Vast is amused.

Not bad in a {W}{G} Commander, too.

Rating: 2/5.

After having played with this card, here's what I think:

-Too expensive at 3WhiteWhite.
-Too slow for ramping Angels out.
-Too fragile (even w/ it's pump ability) because it has to attack and prone to removal or combat tricks.
-Obv. prone to being countered/bounced.

One of the following would have made this card worth keeping IMO:
-A cost of 2WhiteWhite.
-Not needing to attack to pump it up.
-Not needing to add counters in order lower the cost of Human/Angel spells and replacing it with a static 2 less to play Human/Angel spells.
-A 4/4 body.
-Coming into play with a +1/+1 counter already on it.
-Vigilance.
-Hexproof/Shroud.
-Indestructible.

It wins very few games, and most of the time it just ends up with the player tapping out when they played it and essentially losing their turn after it was countered / removed / bounced.

If you need ramping for Angels+Humans (plus other creatures), you can try splashing in Somberwald Sage. It can be had on Turn 2 or 3,... (see all)

Would have been better as a 2/3 for 2WhiteWhite to keep the cmc5 slot free for angels or Cathars' Crusade.

Eric Deschamps hits it out of the park again. Awesome.

While there aren't too many (decent) humans that would benefit from that second ability, casting Akroma for WhiteWhiteWhite is probably pretty cool

You're not supposed to pay mana for angels. That's what kaalia of the vast is for. What do you think this is, Standard?

A bit overkill for my tastes. Anything that goes "Oh by the way this is bigger and your stuff is cheaper" irritates me to a certain friend who runs Animar in a Lorwyn elemental deck.

A 4/4 flyer for 3WW with a second ability is pretty good. The fact that it gets bigger and bigger if not dealt with is pretty sweet. plus it lets you start playing out multiple creatures or bigger creatures or playing creatures with extra mana open for defense quickly. Wish the picture was better though.

Even though I play this in an angel tribal deck, I rarely rely on the cost reduction mechanic. Just being able to gain counters every turn makes this a threat your opponent has to deal with. Reduced cost is nice (especially since I run Avacyn, Gisela, and Aurelia in one deck) but I don't rely on it to cheat the biggies out early.
