5 stars simply for the art

Kinda anime-esque, ye Angel Deathscythe. Giant scythe, pale skin, etc. Same wing positioning as Restoration Angel, strangely enough. This is pretty much Orzhov's take on Firemane Angel, though it's more fairly priced (there's irony, here) in resurrection.

This art seems mighty similar to Reiver Demon. Orzhovs' use of gold really really shines on multicolored cards.

Jason Chan is amazing. This card...shouldn't be mythic. It's okay, but I'm not sure how useful this is. I'd rather play Obzedat, Ghost Council instead. It may not have flying, but it has more utility than this does.

You are all greatly underestimating the ability of this card. It's practically unkillable. Unless you merk both it and the token the first turn it is played, it's going to keep coming back. Consider it: if you play it, you automatically have enough mana to bring it back if it gets killed. If anyone even targets the cleric with malicious intent to you can just sac it in response. Plus the little guy can get back any Deathpact Angel from the grave. I gave it a 4.5/5

Yozuk and some other reviewers were right when they said this card lacked just one more ability to make it playable. In white or black the ability should've been Lifelink or Deathtouch, sure she has evasion and is a 5/5, but most Rare angels are in that same category. Her replacement is a 1/1 cleric, in today's standard environment that P/T just doesn't hack it. Compare with Thragtusk who is an equally sized 5/3, nets you 5 life, and replaces itself with a 3/3 to boot. Oh yeah did we mention that he is 1 mana cheaper and a rare and easier to splash? Her recursion cost is her original casting cost, which is fair, but since she doesn't have Haste means you spent an entire turn to replay her and do nothing useful with your mana, while you opponent has open mana to either destroy, counter, or steal her from you.

This is truly a card with amazing art but the ability is very dysfunctional. I want to call it a Phoenix ability on an angel. But she re... (see all)

Maybe it's too early for some people to see why this card is Mythic Rare.
Let me explain it:
Deathpact Angel dies, you put a 1/1 white and black cleric creature token onto the battlefield with 3(W)(B)(B)(T) sacrifice this creature: Return a card named Deathpact Angel from your graveyard to the battlefield.

Ok, say turn 6 I cast Deathpact Angel.
Opponent is tapped out or otherwise can't kill it on my turn. I attack etc and end my turn.
Opponents turn he destroys it with a removal spell and I put the token as a result of my Deathpact Angel's "dies" ability.
My turn again, and every other turn after that if that token is alive I can have a Deathpact Angel (5/5 flyer) at instant speed (flash). Yes it would still need 6 total mana but this is nowhere near the effect of Rise from the Grave.
This is instant speed, most times can't be countered and you don't u... (see all)

Such pretty art. 5/5 flying for 6 is perfectly reasonable in W/B, and I think her ability definitely pushes her into mythic status. Your opponent needs two CONSECUTIVE removal spells to deal with her or she just comes back. Granted, I do think the token could have done without the tap requirement and just have you pay mana, but it's still plenty strong.

Mythics should hit the table with a bang. This hits the table with a "meh". 5/5 flyer for 6 is fine, and the ability to regenerate itself is better, but did it have to cost so freaking much to come back?

I love angels and seeing a new b/w angel is amazing and with great artwork. 5/5 from me. Maybe not too great for mythic mostly for expensive mana cost but still the only 6 drop mythic of Orzhov and powerful flyer, plus a cool cleric token when it dies hehe. And I don't know why people underrate this card so bad if you noticed this one isn't legendary creature, you can have 4 on them on the battlefield, just for that reason it falls under the category of mythic rare easily. The other 6mana drop angel that brings token is in Avacyn Restored set Voice of the Provinces and is just a 3/3 flyer which is mostly for white and pretty useless for 6cmc , while Deathpact Angel can easily be put in black decks also.
