I ve never played with or against this card (i am no tournament player) but is vigilance really so important, considering the fact that it stops being a creature at EOT? Seems a bit random

As alot of people have said in this discussion, when I first saw this card I instantly thought it would work great in my Blue/White control deck. What I wonder is if anyone has actually used it. It is the only creature in my deck, so it always eats removal. Before I took it out, I was only using it for mana fixing. Good card but I don't think it has a spot in current control decks.

Vigilance is pointless when it take 5 CMC to use per turn. Costing 1 less to activate would be better.
Best of the cycle is probably creeping tar pit or stirring wildwood

I'm surprised how few people (obviously outside of these comments seeing as every other comment mentions it) realize this Is a tribute to U/W's old finishers of Serra angel/sphinx.
Flying, vigilance

Can someone please explain to me why this helps if the creature has summoning sickness?
Right now it looks like a sub-par land that you can tap {3}{W}{U} for a temp blocker.
It looks like it sucks.

Wait for it.... wait for it..... Flame Slash! Or even Combust.

But seriously, this card is awesome, land and creature in one, just the mana cost to convert it that makes this just under a 5/5 rating for me.

I love this card. It screws with so many of my opponent's strategies.

Opponent - "I attack with (insert creature here) and he does (insert damage here) damage to you, because you can't bl--"
Me - "You've forgotten! (taps 5 lands) I have a Celestial Colonnade. I'll make it become a Serra Angel!"
Opponent - "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

One question. If this is taken with a control creature enchantment, then it turns back to a land at the end of the turn, the enchantment is destroyed, no? I'm assuming right now that that's what happens.

Although no one really plays with serra angel anymore, it's comforting to know her beautiful spirit lives on in this glorious creation. Perfect for blue-white control: you just wrath, wrath, wrath, then smash their face with this. The vigilance even means you have mana open for those mana leaks or deprives on their turn.

I've won a rediclulous number of games of this card with my U/W control deck. An amazing card in an amazing set. 5/5
