People mention valakut but not baneslayer. No one even plays baneslayers anymore, what's up with that?

Not bad in casual, I think. It tends to draw a burn spell. Just watch out when Valakut shows up.

Keep your angels, particularly Serra Angel and Baneslayer Angel away from Phyrexian hands

Or they will turn into an ugly monster (but still useful) like this one

the 'reverse landfall' ability is actually in-theme. In theme with WoTC general policy, not so much New Phyrexia block mechanics, but...they do try to make sure they have crossblock synergies like this that, at first look out of place, but in the greater context of designing more than one block at a time, makes sense. These kinds of cards tend to help shape Standard. This one just didn't have quite as much impact.

On the art: Yes, I know it's a Phyrexian, but...it's still an Angel. being ugly feels wrong for an Angel. An evil, twisted Angel should look a bit more, I dunno....remember the creatures the Black Riders rode in Two Towers and RotK? They're not actually ugly, but they're clearly evil, and just a bit unnatural, too. The word Tokien most commonly used to describe 'monstrous' servants/creations of the Enemy was: Fell.

I understand perfectly why the rest of the Phyrexians look transgressive, mutated, freakish and monstrous, but I wished a little bit more of the Angel's 'majesti... (see all)

A counter Landfall card. Not bad, And a 3/3 Flier for 5 isn't that bad either. sure, its a bit underpowered, but if you play against a green deck that trives on lands, this will keep you alive, big time.

If the two whites were phyrexian whites, this would be much better. Sure, you lose 4 life, but you'll quickly make it back up!

Pro red would've also made her amazing. She's still super annoying in casual multiplayer.
