      • truejoeywheeler

  • Beto

    A little disappointed

  • JesperJotun

    Um, 8 plus trip white? So let’s see, deck list as follows? 4 Sorin, 2 Avacyn, 4 isolated Chapels, 4 Vault of the Archangel, 4 Snapcaster Mages, 4 Midnight Hauntings, and 4…oh wait, no wonder they banned Lingering Souls and Intangible Virtues in block! An army of possible 16Flying, Vigilance, Indestructible tokens? No thanks.

    if your only thinking of tokens then your thinking small, in edh avacyn will be very useful if your commander is kaalia of the vast (from the commanders expansion) VERy EXCITED!

  • Griselbrand

    Asceticism+ This = Army o’ Hexproof Indestructibles for a standard GW? Yes please.

  • Red50ne

    phantasmal image for the ill kill….!!!!!!!!HAHAHAHA!!!! Sorry to rain on your parade

    • Ffhearts

      indestructible

      • Damocles

        The legend rule trumps indestructible.

  • Disk3001

    well i guess they needed a replacement for “OMFG I AM SOOOO DEAD” withe creature after elsh norn^^

  • Ffhearts

    4 tragic slip, 4 black suns zenith

  • Damocles

    No one is ever going to hard-cast this.

    • Empyrean

      Don’t be so sure. I see people hardcast Norn all the time.

  • Empyrean

    Oh hello, Akroma, I didn’t know you got reprinted.

  • Xzoah

    Why does the most holy being on Innistrad wear black leather and use enough makeup to be mistaken for a Raccoon?
    You know, I really wonder what she would be like to talk to…
    Most angels probably act somewhat motherly, with a few exceptions:
    Akroma is easy to guess: she’d make you wet yourself in terror before she killed you…
    Radiant would probably act superior and judgmental…
    Iona would probably make you quiver in awe just by standing near you…
    But Avacyn… She could do any or none of those things and I have no idea which…

    • Empyrean

      For some reason I see her as an example of “A mother to her men”. Gentle enough that you aren’t intimidated by her, but strong enough that you know it’s best to do what she asks of you.

    • The Pie

      Well Sorin made her
      So Sorin probably thinks that the outfit he gave her looks hot or something
      And also Akroma was an illusion wasn’t she?

  • Howlingerx3

    Meah! Sadly this will be over priced very soon, and to be blunt… not worth the casting cost in my book. *Pushes the card aside*

    • Empyrean

      Considering the number of disappointed people, I highly doubt that. If anything, she’s probably going to go down in price just enough for people on a budget to run a big white creature in U/W or G/W besides Elesh Norn.

  • EmberStorm

    Kaalia’s got a new best friend for when Avacyn comes out. Same with Griselbrand. That RBW EDH deck gets a massive boost from this set, and I am incredibly pleased with this.

  • Sgjikjsdgijasigj

    Avacyn outdoes Akroma by a long shot I think

    Sure there are many ways to remove her
    But every card can be easily removed
    Avacyn at least lowers the amount of options your opponent has for getting rid of her
    but not just for herself though
    And her mana cost is expensive and all
    but just use like collective voyage or quick silver amulet and pop her out on turn 5

    • Empyrean

      Totally agree. At the very worst, Avacyn is just a standard legal Akroma.

  • Shoobadoo

    Well looks like i’m not running darksteel forge anymore

  • djon

    darksteelforge was never good and not even standard it is a 9 drop and so many ways around it

  • Empyrean

    Well, look at the bright side, people. With a 3 drop angel and Descendant’s Path, she might be a little more playable.

  • Childofalessergod

    So Avacyn was in the Helvault with Griselbrand?!? makes one wonder what them two were doing in there all that time? ::wink, wink::, mind in gutter lol

  • Jacobdanielstrong64

    I love how the easiest way to get the most holy thing in Inistrad out is to kill her and reanimate her… And wtf is with her being killed by 2-5 mana copycat cards?

    I want to love this card, but she is really lacking in so many areas for such an expensive card… Won’t stop me from running all the legendary angels though, not one bit! =]

  • Pdietrich20
