So she's a 10/10 Flying First Strike who doubles your life total, your other creatures power and toughness, and the output of burn spells?

She makes for a great Boros General-
her only real drawback is vulnerability to removal,
which can be compensated for with Lightning Greaves or the like.
She's incredibly flexible- she supports token swarm, goodstuff, combo, spellslinger, and voltron play styles.

For fun, add Hostility and cast Comet Storm-
A double-sized horde of 6/2 Hasted Elementals is likely to end the game rather quickly.

Also, I *really* want to run her with Mirror Gallery and Infinite Reflection,
just to make the game impossible to play without a calculator.

Everbody just keep comparing Gisela and Aurelia. I rather look at them as the Boros step sisters (as Razia is quite bad compared to them) that should cooperate.

Play Naya and your finisher will easily be tooth and nail dropping both angels at once onto the battlefield. And if you, for some reason (fog), couldn't win that turn you will cast a savage beatingthe turn after; that is double strike with x2 damage with 3x combat = your little 2/2 creature now give 24 damage. Epic!

She is the fearless leader.

I always call her "Blade of Goodnight" for some reason.

Everyone is pointing out the combo with Kaalia, but no-one has mentioned another card from the same Commander deck as her that combos great with Gisela. Pyrohemia. Get both on the table and it's "R: Pyrohemia deals 2 damage to each opponent and each creature they control, and no damage to you or your creatures".

Edit: ClowWizardEriol, the damage prevented is rounded up. Rounding up 1/2 a point of damage prevented equals 1 point of damage prevented, thus she prevents all the damage Pyrohemia would deal to you and creatures you control.

I've been waiting for this card.

I'm a R/W player, through and through, and this card just makes me happier than I can probably express.

It was depressing to go through Innistrad and Dark Ascension, with their arbitrary decision to focus on ally colored cards and to ignore enemy colored cards. But, this single card manages to make up for all of that.

It's a legendary mythic creature. Effectively the highest tier a creature can exist in, and the first R/W one ever printed. And, it actually pushes the boundaries of just how powerful a creature can be, being a virtual 10/10 first strike flyer for seven mana, which alone would be tremendously powerful but her abilities extend far, far beyond that.

When you throw in the fact that she's a beautiful angel, I'm just so happy that this card exists. It's like I've been rewarded for not giving up hope, which I guess is the core theme of Avacyn Restored.

Honestly... I like her over Avacyn >.>

She gives Razia a run for her money.
But why bit them against ech other when can you use BOTH?
They work decent toghether actually. Gisela yield Razia that she NOT made of cardboard (duh) and Razia's can actually smack meanies on another side of the board for a whooping six!

Also it's note worthy that her first ability is kinda political in multiplayer, with opponents smacking each other for double damage.

It's nice knowing that with that angel lady and Slayer's Stronghold (and mabe, mabe other shinies in Return to Ravnica?) Boros can hit a buck once again.
