    Too expensive, might be good for Kalia though…

  • Wisdomseyes

    7 mana for a 5/6 flying that is basically Fiend Hunter for up to 3 creatures, and instead of putting those cards back on the battlefield, she bounces them foricing your opponent to pay mana to play them again. Additionally, if there isnt anything to exile you may exile creatures in your grave so that god forbid she dies because your opponent wants his shit back or just doesnt want a flying beater on the field and controls her, you get her back. 
    Definitely seeing play in EDH, standard is the real question… and I could see it happening.

    Also… @people who said “too expensive”, please remind me what elesh norns mana cost is. And dont pretend like you saw her potential right away because you didnt. You, like everyone else, considered her a junk rare. And even in decks without birthing pod elesh norn has been seeing play. This card can easily see play, but honestly I hope it doesnt so its cost stays low so i can put it in EDH with near no issues.

    Would work well in my G/W Pod deck which has both the Graved creatures and the Mana to cast this babe.

  • YouGotFranked

    Frites replacement for Elesh Norn?

  • Zimmer Remmiz

    Too expensive for me would have been a better phrasing, no way I’m paying that much for any card in one of my decks, hell I don’t like using mana at all, I’m a dredge player you see, she might be a good dread return target though…

    • f4g4g4g4g4

      if you don’t like using mana at all, there aren’t going to be that many magic cards you’re going to like, bro……

      • Zimmer Remmiz

        Guessing you aren’t familiar with Dredge?…

        • Wisdomseyes

          That was a great response ;) 

      • craig pelton

        ornithopter/memnite deck! what up?!?!?!?!

        • Wisdomseyes

          The deck list is called “affinity”, its a modern tactic, and there are still lots of cards that cost mana in the deck.

  • Flickering this thing can lead to huge graveyard drawing.

  • Mlundgoldstein

     This card is amazing triple Fiend Hunter/ temporarily exiles creatures/ brings cards back to your hand from the graveyard/big flier way better than Elesh Norn not even close

  • Bryan Johnson

    Not better than Elesh Norn.

    If she could get rid of permanents, then it would be a pretty close race, and would come down to the specific state of the game at that point, but this just isn’t going to cut it for tournament play.

    • I think you’re wrong. Elesh doesn’t draw you three cards if he eats a doom blade.

  • indes

    Detain on crack. 

  • Angstrom

     It’s not a question of whether shes better than elesh.  She obviously isnt.  It’s whether or not she’s better than Gisela and while that’s tougher to say, I don’t think she is.

    Potential sideboard tech in frites mirror?  Are frites mirrors ever going to occur? I damn well hope so.  

    • YouGotFranked

       She is better than Gisela in Frites imo. If you look at the original Frites deck (With Elesh, Inferno Titan and Wurmcoil), these creatures had an impact the moment they entered the battlefield. Elesh and Inferno were removal, while Wurmcoil didn’t do anything while entering the battlefield, he did when he left. Gisela can be removed before she do anything. With Angel of Serenity, you get value out of it the moment she enter the battlefield. This sort of value is very important because in Frites, you never really have an army. You’re always stuck with 1 or 2 creature on the battlefield, so they must have an immediate impact.

    so… the down side is no flash?

    • Denvereight

      It’s a white lady brother. 
      Asking that of her, is like asking a fish to be a gorilla.

  • The fact that she can remove from graveyard and return those cards to hand does a long way in some deck. This does, of course, have the nifty flicker-tricks (blink it with the ETB trigger on the stack to permanently exile three creatures from play/graveyard. Using cloudshift in response to blocking with it  handles FOUR attackers, and can easily reset and opponent’s buard, and leave you with a 5-6 flier and whatever else you have sitting around.
    I dont forsee this in dredge, it never wants creatures back into its hand anyhow, and Angel of Despair is just a better answer to things.
    Pod decks will use this (in modern, seeing as how pod will rotate out when this rotates in). I myself will be using this in modern, because Reveillark.

  • Higa

    This with Conjuer’s Closet sounds nice.

  • Ricky MacLeod

    this is a card that we will have to wait and see on but i’m guessing at the CMC 7 it will only show in decks that mana ramp or use alternate ways to get it out.

  • Neuo the 1

    I wish it exiled Enchantments and artifacts as well which for the 7 cost wouldn’t we unreasonable.

    • f4g4g4g4g4

      that wouldn’t be very angelic. it’s an angel, it only saves creatures, even those that already died. it’s excellent flavor, deal with it

      • Wisdomseyes

        It would be pretty white though… 

  • Samuraisquid1

    If Restoration Angel could target angels, this card would be legitimately insane.

  • I was excited for Admonition Angel and sad when I realized I didn’t want to play more lands after I hit 7.

    This girl does everything I wanted to do with Admonition Angel automatically. My fear is that it will be too little too late unless you can cloudshift her since tokens are going to be the mainstay of the aggro decks after Return comes out.

  • 1. Cloudshift + Angel of Serenity
    2. ????
    3. Profit!
