I passed this up to order an Archon of Justice...I'm comfortable with my choice.

I just don't like it... If you play it for six mana it will be the biggest target on your field... and it's the only one that it can't protect :( Because of that, its ability doesn't seem as useful. The art is so beautiful though.

What about Glimmerpoint Stag? It says the creature is invincible as long as you control the Aegis Angel: so you can summon her and make a friend indestructible, bounce her out, and get a new one. Since technically you still control the Angel, then you get two indestructible creatures :D

And the correct name for this card was probably Guardian Angel. Too bad they used that name already.

The duel nature combo doesn't work. Since both abilities go on the stack simultaneously, you have to target a permanent with Aegis Angel's ability before the token is made.

Nice card in limited though has its limitations. I played red and Combust worked very well :P. Combust destroys this even if you have Spellskite out too :D

I think a lot of people are missing the potential environment that this creature will be playing in. Sure there will be Titans to contend with, but this is meant to support your Titans, not swing like a drunken lumberjack. This is meant to be played after you drop one of your Titans to protect it from removal. I would like Making my Sun Titan Indestructible while I revive smaller guys with "enter the battlefield" effects.

Maybe not too competitive right now, but its obvious that there is a slowdown coming, at least for Standard. And in that environment a couple (or even 1) of these could be used to round out the mana curve with a few Titans.

For right now I don't think I can justify giving this a 4/5, but perhaps a 3.5 for having future potential.

Actually, I do believe this + Spellskite is protected by Combust, because Spellskite's ability doesn't counter, nor prevent the damage, it just redirects it. Just like you can cast redirect in response to Combust to send it somewhere else.

Edit: Right, nvm, sometimes I forget that Spellskite isn't blue, just its ability is.

turn to frog does work against this card, because it deactivates the ability.

If a player temporarily loses control of Aegis Angel does indestructibly return once that player regains control of Aegis Angel?

No, then no permanent would be indestructible. That triggers when she enters the battlefield, not when you gain control of her.
