Angel's Grace
 
This week, we've got some cards that we either haven't reviewed before or did so a very long time ago. Magic's history is full of hidden gems, and perhaps some of this week's reviews will give you ideas for a new deck or interaction, or at least help you think about things in a different way. One of my favorite activities is looking through batches of older cards, for those reasons and for the reason that almost every one I see stirs some kind of memory. We're really fortunate in this game, that we can literally touch history.
 
Like almost every card in the Time Spiral block, Angel's Grace is a history exhibit: in this case, it references Orim's Chant from Planeshift and Worship from Urza's Saga. It actually shared a Standard environment with Worship, which was also in the Ninth Edition, and in that environment it proved to not be quite as popular. There were decks in Standard that found it harder to deal with an enchantment than to play around a one-shot effect, split second or no, but this paradigm was reversed in other formats. Getting the effect once and only once didn't matter so much against a deck that devoted all of its resources to casting Grapeshot or some such, and one mana is very easy for anyone to keep open. It also manages to just about match the obnoxiousness of Orim's Chant when you put it on an Isochron Scepter, but I more blame the Scepter for that. Very little good ever came of that card.
