Battlegrace Angel
 
Somebody made an off-hand comment at the pre-release that all the creatures in Alara appear to be either Angels or Dragons. But when all of them are as neat as Battlegrace Angel, so what? Its price and its stats are just right for a control or midrange deck, and the lifelink is great for getting out of burn range. I even like the art.
 
You know somebody is going to combine this with Windbrisk Raptor at some point. And Loxodon Warhammer, most likely. Where is Sulfuric Vortex when you really need it?

Battlegrace Angel

The list of angels for 5cc is long and this one is one that will get play. 4/4, Lifelink, Flyer is a great creature on its own. I really like exalted in multiplayer as often in multiplayer you are only willing to commit to one creature attacking. The exalted mechanic in limited has already proved itself it you are lucky to get enough not to mention a flyer this big is always great. In limited the game of late is to get out the big guy quick and with this fellow you are easy to get a bang for the buck. Not sure about constructed with this guy yet but in some more control oriented decks it may work.

Battlegrace Angel

 

Constructed: It would be nice to see a Exalted deck show up in the top decks. She is a good one to build a Exalted deck around, you even have a Intro pack to start with.

 

Casual: Angels are very popular among the casual crowd. This a great addition to any Angel deck.

 

Limited: This is a game winning bomb. If you get her into play and she stays you won. I think Exalted is a underrated ability. It can be really go in draft or sealed.

 

Overall a very good creature with a fantastic ability. Drop her in with some creatures with Shadow and put the hurt on your opponent and gain some life.

 

Constructed: 3

Casual: 4

Limited: 4

 

Have a great Thanksgiving.

Good card for limited and casual, but not so much in constructed. Simply put it lacks protection and simply isnt good enough to warrant a spot in most decks. However in limited this thing is absolutely crazy. Exalted decks are generally very strong in limited if you can get enough of the creatures. For example if you attack with a 3/3 it becomes a 4/4 with lifelink on the attack. Even if it dies you can still apply the bonus to another creature on the next turn. If you attack with a Rhox War Monk you get a 4/5 with double lifelink, very nice in a casual deck.

Constructed - 2.5/5
Casaul 3.5/5
Limited 4/5
