serra the planeswalker in ravnica?

Well... this screws up my Mana Curve. I MUST HAVE IT.

It's amazing how different this card would have been if it had been 4 mana instead of having the restriction. But as it stands it's more than twice as good with its current form. I've won several casual games with only her on the board, so give her a shot.

I pulled one at the pre-release, and was a staple in my WU creature deck. In epic and flavorful moment, I had an Serra Angel on the field with a few weenies. My opponent O-rings serra angel and passes the turn, I then play this and I preceded to beat back his assault and eventually break the o-ring and kill him. we both agreed that it was epic.

Arghh! My friend got this and Sublime Archangel when he bought a couple of boosters.
He doesn't even have a white weenie deck to use those but won't trade it to me because they're awesome, oh well :(

Looks like they sacrificed the flavor text (which gives insight on the card's mechanics and character) of the original to explain vigilance since it's a core set. Naturally, I'd rather have the original.

@ jasonpaul601

why not do both? Azorius is very popular right now.
Besides, It isn't always just about when they come out, cause in the end, you can actually place two of these on turn four. And that vigilance is extremely useful. Besides, the chances of you getting that 3/2 by turn two is extremely slim, whereas if you pull this card, it's generally guaranteed that it will be out on turn four. In addition, you are likely to be playing other things up to when you place this card, otherwise you are screwed anyway. She is a great card to play, even on turn 10 (though at that point there are probably better moves).

@ everyone

Though Avenger can't be placed immediately, she is still a fantastic card, given that, though she cant come out until turn four, she still only costs 2 white, which frees the other 2 mana for other things that you can place.
Finally, her vigilance. Vigilance is a fantastic ability, and there is no disputing that. As your sole creature, she can swing over defenses ... (see all)

Use in extort for even more value.

People argue that this is overshadowed by a lot of other cards in standard atm... true, but considering you'll probably cast this, leave mana open for something, maybe extort, or think twice, or spell rupture. Which imo, keeps the card's value relatively high in game when she's on the field. I keep forgetting she's got vigilance too

But then again... i see this and think... here's another way æther vial can be broken...

Surprised they reprinted a card with such a wanky time spirally mechanic, specially in a core. Cool, but see obzedat and thragsuck for turn 4-5 in standard.

Edit: that third karn oracle clause is lol. Anti-synergy with shaharazad.
