I managed to get 3 of these and a progenitus. And progenitus now has 3 confirmed kills for me; which is pretty awesome. Crazy ridiculous combo: Madrush Cyclops + Maelstrom Archangel + Progenitus + Finest Hour = INSTANT DEATH! Haven't done that one YET, but salivating quite anxiously over it.

I traded this for Nicol Bolas and I now regret it. With this you could play Progenitus or an ultimatum. Also Manaplasm with this would be extreme. Get Finest Hour out and give the angel double strike and trample to get 4 spells free a turn.

Maelstrom Archangel is an awesome card!!! The artwork is fantastic, for one! And the flavor text is pretty cool, especially for lovers of Angel creatures! :-) But to pay 5 total mana for a 5/5 Flying creature with an ability like hers is just plain phenomenal! Sure, she costs five *different* colors of mana, but there are plenty of ways to get that, right? Besides, I like The_Somnambulist's idea about giving her double-strike! A very clever idea! That's why I love this game (well, one of the many reasons)!!! It's all about understanding that "double-strike" is dealing 5 damage TWO times, not 10 damage once. :-)

As far as I know, this is one of the only acceleration cards that lets you actually CAST spells rather than PLAY them. So you could safely use this with Phage.

Too bad it has to be combat damage. Find a way to give this thing haste and your ready to rock and roll with some free planeswalkers and/or rediculous creatures like Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Progenitus.

I have a friend who basically concedes when I imprint one of these on a Soul Foundry. Good times. :-)

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
