  • Xzoah

    First… Yay, a blue angel. Hmm… Auras? I didn’t think that blue did a lot with auras… I thought that was a white/green thing…

    • Sajomir

      Well, you could technically play off-color auras with her. Even if you discard them through self-mill/draw 1 + discard one kind of cards, she still makes them usable.

  • Flosscar

    Well, here come the auras. They haven’t spoiled any yet, but by spoiling her you can bet there’s gonna be a lot of them

    • Wisdomseyes

      not entirely. Aura’s seem more like something we would see in M13. Avacyn restored has soulbond, which is more or less a similar result.

      • Empyrean

        And even then, the only aura that’ll probably be worth it in M13 will be Angelic Destiny if they reprint it.

  • Empyrean

    …Wow. I have to say, I’m disappointed what with all the speculation that she might do stuff with removing things from play. Hell, even if her ability was only tapping and flickering a creature (with her flying and vigilance of course), I would say it’s the most playable angel of the three flocks. But this? This seems kind of dumb. The only aura that’s even remotely worth playing in Standard right now is Angelic Destiny, so for the most part, the ability says “When Bruna attacks or blocks, attach an Angelic Destiny to it if you happen to have one in your hand or if your opponent happens to have one out”.

      They still have the rest of the set to reveal bro

      • Empyrean

        You can’t honestly tell me that every single white/blue aura in the set is going to be good enough to make this worth running in standard.

        • R. Desrosiers

          why do u assume it has to be white or blue? he ability reads on battlefield or ur hand or your graveyard. so just run a fund UB aggro with some mill in there and ur good to go. i also see this being a good addition for reanimator decks that want a new feel. also a GREAT creature for some pre-existing EDH decks like Zur, or for a brand new one. i for one am making a deck around her

          • Empyrean

            Ok, let me rephrase that: You can’t honestly tell me that there are going to be enough worthwhile auras in this set to completely change the metagame enough to make this worth playing in standard.

          • Tainted Soul

            I don’t know about you, but in an esper deck, swinging and pulling in a phyresis, spirit mantle, and lifelink onto this creature from forbidden alchemy type digging sounds pretty hilarious.

          • Empyrean

            Good thing nobody runs those auras because, like every other aura in Standard that isn’t Angelic Destiny, they suck.

          • http://www.facebook.com/GcruzG Cruz Gallagher

            lol, new aura out, all creatures on your side of the field become a copy of enchanted creature

      Wizard’s target audience for MTG is casual players, so do not just assume that this card is meant to be great in Standard. There are other formats too.

  • guest

    Spirit mantle

    • Empyrean

      Nobody uses Spirit Mantle in Standard.

      • Sajomir

        I did when Innistrad hit. Hella cheaper than Angelic Destiny and usually = game over on Traft.

        • Empyrean

          Then the two of you are either

          A.) Complete morons

          or

          B.) Too poor to afford Angelic Destinies and are trying to delude yourself into thinking Spirit Mantle is “Just as good”.

          Newsflash: Spirit Mantle being cheaper doesn’t mean squat. All it really does for you is allow you to keep enough mana open for a Mana Leak you probably aren’t going to need because your Traft is hitting for 10 each time it attacks (with either nothing to block it or something really valuable that your opponent has to use to block or they die) or wasting it on a 1 or 2 drop like Delver or Grand Abolisher and, quite frankly, if you’re in a position where you have to do that, you’re probably going to lose anyway.

          Face it: There are reasons nobody runs Spirit Mantle over Angelic Destiny in standard.

          • Dark Rituals

            You need to chill out. Sometimes people play magic non-optimally, and that’s ok. You’re being incredibly rude for no understandable reason.

      • Beto

        I do, usually helps me win the game :)

  • gajolmad

    wait a sec does this mean that you can steal auras from your opponents side of the battlefield?!

    • Wisdomseyes

      yes

  • Childofalessergod

    Not that good in Standard, but i just got a huge EDH boner!….As for Spirit Mantle being a replacement for Angelic Destiny is just absurd, Destiny Rocks…But Spirit Mantle is not bad, it is a very underestimated card put on the right creature. I run 4 of them alongside Angelic Destiny, in my double strike deck. the Destiny’s are usually for Mirrodin Crusader or Markov Blademaster, and the spirit mantles are usually for stromkirk noble for speed sake. If i dont see one of my destiny’s when i have crusader or blademaster out, then spirit mantle is fine for the time being…i dont mind hitting for 8 unblocked each turn, and with blademaster getting an extra counter to hit for more next turn…as i said Mantle is underestimated. Kudos to those who appreciate it…ps, good shit sajomir for using mantle on traft.
