Entreat the Angels

Fun fact: Todd Lockwood also did a lot of art for various Dungeons and Dragons sourcebooks. As such, I was about to say that this looked like unusued concept art for a location on Mount Celestia, but that sounds snarkier than I mean - it's actually a very inspiring piece. That alone would probably make the card worth a place in a lot of decks, and as long as Ponder is also legal in the same format, the requirement for its alternate cost doesn't look so steep. For some reason, I also noticed that it rather easily sets up Mosswort Bridge, which is kind of funny.

Today's card of the day is Entreat the Angels which is a three White and two X or with Miracle a two White and one X sorcery that puts X 4/4 angels with Flying into play.  Five mana for one 4/4 with Flying isn't that noteworthy, but is a bit better when the same card can produce two 4/4 with Flying for seven.  The nine or more mana to create additional tokens is unlikely which makes this far more impressive when the Miracle is activated.  That same five mana produces three angels and each additional mana spent is another token which can become a game-ending play particularly if triggered by a card draw on the opponent's turn. 

Overall this is a strong card in the right build and like most Miracles really requires proper management to activate both at the lower cost and in an advantageous situation.
 
For Limited this is an incredible bomb that is only weakened if drawn too early or in the opening hand.  As a mid to late game card this is a finisher that should win nearly any game with the format defining advantages of large flying tokens.  An absolute first pick in Booster and while a bit too White reliant to be splashed in Sealed is very much worth running the color because of it being in your pool.

       Welcome to a new week of card of the day reviews here at Pojo.com. To kick this week off we are looking at Entreat the Angels from Avacyn Restored. Entreat the Angels is a white mythic rare sorcery that costs double X and three white mana. Entreat the Angels puts X 4/4 White Angel creature tokens with flying onto the battlefield. Entreat the Angels has a Miracle cost of X and two white mana.

      Entreat the Angels is sick. Now if you try casting it for its actual cost, it factors out to be way too expensive. But when it is cast for its Miracle cost, it is simply amazing! For example, if you have five mana out and want to cast Entreat the Angels, you would end up with only one 4/4 white Angel with flying. Almost like getting a Serra Angel that lost its Vigilance. However, for that same five mana for the Miracle cost, you would end up with three 4/4 flying Angels!

       Card is simply amazing, nothing much more to say about it. Except that in Standard white/green decks should make a surge and run Entreat the Angels with Parallel Lives for some added fun!
