I really like the flavor of this card... "Lord of Innistrad"
And he is. He built an angel to form a church... which now controls the hearts and minds of the people of innistrad... Why? Well that's a good question.

Either A: he's slightly benevolent and doesn't want humans to be extinct... (Fairly unlikely)
Or B: he cares for vampires and needed someone to farm humans so that his own kind didn't starve.
Or C: Humans going extinct would have ruined the plain in general, and he doesn't like ugly messes like that.

In any case, he's clearly the man in charge (and no one knows it which makes him cooler) His ambiguous motives make him all the more interesting...

Wizards employee 1: "Hey, man, remember when there was a $50+ planeswalker in Standard?"

Wizards employee 2: "Yeah, that was awesome. Every tournament deck ran four Jace, and you couldn't find a playset under $180 to save your life."

Wizards employee 1: "Yeah, $200 to even get a foot in the door and *try* to compete in a tournament. Those were the days, huh?"

Wizards employee 2: "Yeah. That was dope. Y'know, I really wish Standard could be like that again, but R&D seems pretty apologetic about Jace, so they'll probably play it safe from here on out..."

Wizards employee 1: "Wait, wait, didn't R&D leave *us* in charge of designing the iconic planeswalker for this new block?"

Wizards employees 1 and 2: ... *simultaneous evil grin*

And so another $60 legend was born.

@MANABURNWASGOOD and people like him, it's a planeswalker that only costs 4 mana that can defend him self while adding loyalty, and healing you. The reason why it's a 1/1 with life-link instead of a 1/1 with life-link and flying is because of balance, complaining about that balancing factor makes you sound like a whiny player. You're complaining about getting a 1/1 with life link for no mana that buffs your planeswalker's loyalty. Plus the second ability can buff it up so you have several 2/1s with life link that can defend or kill, that right there is really good. Then to top it off the third ability lets you kill your opponent's meanest planeswalkers and creatures then put them into play under your control. Then to top it all off this card has amazing art. Yes 50-60 bucks is pricey for a card, but this card is very good. No complaints from me. This card is a five out of five from me. (5/5 rating)

Sure, he's great in the WB Tokens deck that's obviously being forced through in DKA with the existence of this, Intangible Virtue, Midnight Haunting, Elspeth Tirel, Lingering Souls, Vault of the Archangel, et al. The problem, as I see it, is that as a token generator there are better cards, and as a token buffer, there are better cards. Sure, he's another one you can run alongside them, and the fact that his second ability is an emblem is nice. But is that enough to justify all the massive helpings of love that have been piled on him and support a $50 price tag? Unlikely.

However, there are two things that make me want to keep an eye on him. First is the word "vampire" in his first ability. That means he gets First Strike and +1/+1 from Stromkirk Captain and other tribal goodies, and the addition of lifelink on top of that could tip the card. Second is th... (see all)

Is that a Scrubs reference?

I love how you can find him in a fat pack, sell him, then get enough money to buy another fat pack.

And that's exactly what I did. :)

Pretty surprising that some vampires have white in them after all.

Currently selling for $60 (US)..
A friend and I have decided that the booster box we're splitting will have 72 of these.

Anyway, greedy bastard thoughts aside, this is my favorite planeswalker card so far.. Being able to turncoat Jace, Baneslayer, and a Titan in one go certainly has it's advantages.

"He wants his babyback babyback babyback babyback babyback babyback babyback babyback babyback..."

"When does he say angel?"

"Never. He never says angel."

Probably one of the first people to open one of these, and only 1 of two at the local store.
Really powerful, although I haven't tried him out yet.
He seems to combo with the Chalice of Life.
