A balanced Angel. Whooda thunk it?

This is a very solid creature, but it's incapable of affecting the game nearly enough to warrant costing five mana. It's fun to play, at least.

Ok folks, here's the score. This is Gatherer. You all probably got here by putting 'creature type-Angel' and hitting enter to look at hot art. Ok, well Gatherer is organized Alphabetically. Go back 3 cards. See that? That's Serra Angel. That card was the one and only creature in a deck called 'The Deck'. Back when 'Standard' was the kind of place that allowed you to play 4 copies of ass-busting cards like Necropotence, Balance, and Strip Mine.

Serra Angel was once agreed to be just plain the best. This is a splashable Serra, with Free Lifelink.

I dont care that Baneslayer Angel exists. I dont care that Vampire Nighthawk exists. This card is a strictly better Serra Angel, and Serra Angel was the keystone of a deck that could rip Caw-Blade, Jund, Faeries, and Affinity limb from limb. At once. (well ok, maybe it would have to tackle Affinity separately). My point is, this card deserves 5 stars. 4.5 is an insult to a card like this.

Baneslayer and Nighthawk I guess would be 5.5 or 6. ... (see all)

This is a great card. Sure, there are super-strong alternatives around, but a 3/3 flyer with vigilance and first strike? Nice. Clear the airways and kill those death touching scum bags!

Yes, I'm talking to you, Vampire Nighthawk ;)

She's an almost perfect complement to an Exalted-based aggro deck. Note that she works well when teamed up with another 5cc flyer, the Battlegrace Angel.

She can be seen warding off Eldrazi in Harmless Assault

Strictly better than Skyrider Trainee?

was helping my friend modify his deck to get ready for a tournament we plan on attending soon, and he had one of these guys, and i wasnt sure but i threw him in to see. He ended up pretty much owning us and beat me up pretty bad with this dude.. Flying and vigilance and first strike are my three favorite abilities so thrown onto one guy... preeeeeeetty seeexxy

Think about how crazy this card would be if it was only a 3 cost haha. Would be like the opposite of Vampire Nighthawk. I bet everyone would run this in that case. But. . it isn't the case lol. 4/5 for usefulness in limited and draft.

Hrm. I'd say first strike and enhanced splashability make up for having -1/-1 compared to Serra Angel.
And I love Serra Angel.
