I love this card in terms of function, flavour and art (standing stalwart against the sorceries of the sinful, much?), but there's just a single detail that drives me to distraction: her scabbard is COMPLETELY wrong for her sword :P Sounds pathetic I know, but it's just such perfect art except for that.

Great card. White needs answers like this to slow down control decks and removal. the fact that she is combat-competent is just icing.

It's so sad that players don't realize that this card makes ALL non-creature spells cost more.

This is my favourite card in Standard right now. It slows down both aggro (the ability slows down burn and the two power first strike means she beats everything hasty Rakdos and lives to tell the tale) and control (usually no counters until turn four and no board sweepers until turn five). If you're playing white and she doesn't undermine your own strategy, you want to run three (not four, since she's legendary).

Worst case scenario, she gets burned at a higher-than-usual price, and a two drop mana draining removal magnet is fine by me, because that means that the Silverblade Paladin I'm about to play might stick.

Let's go around the color pie of what can take care of an opponents Thalia in standard:
White: Oblivion Ring
Blue: Cyclonic Rift
Black: Ultimate Price
Red: Pillar of Flame
Green: Prey Upon
But now, Pillar costs {1R}, Prey Upon costs {1G}, Rift costs {2U}, Ultimate Price costs {2B}, and Oblivion Ring costs {3W}!
Now THAT is power.

@filmfanaticryan: If you're referring to noncreature spells with changeling (like Crib Swap or Nameless Inversion), Thalia will still make them cost 1 more. Changeling gives a spell every creature subtype, but it doesn't add any types (instant, sorcery, enchantment, creature, etc.) or supertypes (basic, legendary, creature).

By that same reasoning, creature spells with changeling (like Shapesharer) will not cost extra by Thalia's doing.

Don't like this for white soldier rush, cause it interferes with tokens.
However, perfect for Boros decks. Not color intensive, and all Boros is is creature spells pretty much.

Her + Ruric Thar = butthurted spell players. She would fit into that zoo- Domri-creature Deck, on the downside that you can't cast her for free with Burning-Tree Emissary.
I could be mistaken and it is just overkill though.
