I like this card. Yeah, I know you can't play
this one your first three turns, but that's OK.
I think it's a great post Wrath of God (or other
world sweeper effect) card. It's pretty good for
allowing you to apply pressure constantly. And
against other weenies, it allows you to stay on
the offensive without giving up your defense at
A 3/3 vigilant flyer is always good, especially
for only two mana. But no amount of mana
acceleration will get her on the field before
Turn 4. So she might as well just cost four,
right? Not if you have another use for that
leftover mana. Serra Avenger bestows a serious
tempo boost, if you can take advantage of it.
And the fact that she can attack and block is a
great boon as well. And, she's a two-mana Angel
which is a tribal deck that's more choked at the
6-mana slot than any I've seen. Except maybe
Serra Avenger -
I've gotten a chance to play with Serra Avenger
and in my opinion, she's everything she's
cracked up to be. A 3/3 flying vigilance for 2
mana? I'm sold. You can't play it until turn 4,
but that doesn't mean much. Especially since you
can play *two* on turn 4. Serra Avenger won't
help you get the incredibly quick rout of your
opponent, but it will help you win before a long
drawn out game ensues. Serra Avenger is good,
end of story.
By far, the most overhyped card in the entire
set. Seriously, folks. This card isn’t as neat
as y’all make it out to be. Yes, she’s a 3/3
vigilant flier for 2. But when she’s only going
to come down on turn 4, what use is that going
to be? If you’re playing agro, that isn’t very
efficient, and if you’re playing this as your
finisher in control, I’d like to see the look on
your face when your opponent finishes your win
condition off with a mere Lightning Helix. If
you’re looking for a real angel, look to our 6/6
unstoppable angel of wrath, Akroma- “No rest, no
mercy, no matter what”- now, that sounds like my
kind of finisher.
A very efficiently costed creature. You get a
Serra Angel with -1/-1 for only 2 mana, which is
clearly a bargain. The drawback of not being
able to play this until turn four is not that
much of one, in my opinion, as the body alone
without the drawback would cost 4 mana anyway,
and the deck this goes in doesn't play
acceleration. Because this costs 2, it lets you
drop this and one or two other creatures on turn
4, and clean house. Just don't do this against a
control deck with 2 white on the table.
In casual, it's a cheap angel, so it might get
put into angel decks.
In limited, it's efficiently costed and it can
potentially help you develop your board faster.
Play it if you're playing white.
Constructed - 3
Casual - 3
Limited - 3.5
This card can legtimately fit into any white
deck there is. Sometimes she's not the best
choice, but she's pretty damn good. Mike Flores
basically said everything you need to know in
her article, but here's a brief summary:
-Aggro Decks: Any creature that big with evasion
for only 2 mana is a definite fit. Just play
your other weenies on turn 1, 2, and 3.
-Control Decks: Leaves mana open for counters,
thanks to vigilance it's great against aggro. It
gets burned out easily, but it's better than
Limited: Tempo isn't that important in sealed,
so the drawback is actually costing 2 colored
mana. Oh well, you play it because she's really
good. Once again vigilance puts her over the top
and I completely got shutdown by this card at
the pre-release. I just could not get through a
3/3 wall since my deck was based on rebels and
creating a bunch of citizen tokens (it was a
Play her if you got any white at all.
Constructed - When I saw the art for this card I
thought "WOW that look's cool. I wonder what it
does. Must be cool!" Then I saw the card. I
thought not bad for an uncommon. The I looked
closer. A RARE! Really! Well it's not worth it
and I think this is a really bad card. Just use
watchwolf it's much
better. I really can't see any use for this card
if you do good job.
Casual - Not worth it. By the time you play this
your opponent will have an answer to this. By
the time you play this you can play something
Like Ghost Council.
Limited - It might be worth it. But again by the
time you play this they will have an answer.
Constructed - 2.0 now if it was a 4/4
Casual - 2.0
Limited - 2.5
Happy Halloween!! (does anyone else think an
angel is the wrong card to review. Maybe a
Demon, Zombie, or Skeleton. Heck even a shade.)
