    So, Avacyn became a tyrant in Innistrad, sending the angels to terrify the people in this plane.The war is, now, against the holy ones.
    That’d be intersting

    Here comes Avacyn, the Mad

    • Andy Upton

      or perhaps nahiri is posing as an angel and is causing chaos which makes the humans believe the angels have gone rogue

      • Atarka Effreet

        PLOT TWIST
        Ob Nixilis kills everyone on Inninstrad, just like he did with the unnamed plane hes from!

  • Sum Mors

    Or Nahiri/Liliana are hiding among the populous and the Angels are saying “give them up or we’ll mess you up”

    • Gareth Martin

      Oh no! What ever are the planeswalkers to do?! Too bad they can’t just instantly leave the plane!

      • Liam Maiher

  • Happy The Cat

    so I started work on a Phelddagrif edh with a jump combo kit, this will help nicely.

  • Ben Ehren

    oh man i was hoping for a set with the angels as the bad guys. now i just need good guy demons.

    • Atarka Effreet

      Goodbye, goodie-two-shoes Zendikar, hello daemonic Phyrexia!

  • MTG fan

    Sweet for a common, use it when you don’t have a flying creature and the opponent only has one. Weaker plummet

    • Matt86

      ‘Each opponent’, not ‘Each player’

      • MTG fan

        Sweet! Sorry I missed that..,

  • Dr Bear

    Is that Gisela?

    • Zombie

      Nope.

      Gisela has a white cloak with a red tabbard down the front, not much armor, and wields two swords.

    • YouGotFranked

      No but it does look like an angel from the Host of Goldnight

  • theEternalPilgrims

    I’m so down for evil angels.

  • Fael

    White being evil? That’s a fascinating plot twist. Since Elesh we don’t have a nice and coherent White as antagonist.
    Oh! and… Very useful card.

    • Rockstick

      Yeah, there’s Konda too, but it’s even further away

    • Zombie

      I think it’s more that the Humans are the evil here.

      The connotation of clipping wings is what makes me think the Humans are the antagonists in SOI.

      The Angels could turn, somehow, but they’d have to have a reason to do so.

      Possible Avacyn’s corrupted, Emrakul might have reached Innistrad, etc. But it seems like the humans are twisting this so they can kill the angels.

      • Happy The Cat

        I think that the angels are the bad guys. read that flavor text, that’s kinda messed up.

    • Deadly Berry

      White is always on the verge of fanatism due to its unrelenting righteousness. White effects are pretty violent and destructive too.

    • Hedronal

      At least we got a touch of that in Heliod.

    • Falconfly

      Dromoka and Ojutai were pretty evil.

      • Atarka Effreet

        Not as evil as Kolaghan, Simulgar and Nicol Bolas.

        • Falconfly

          Kolaghan at least didn’t perform a hostile take-over as both Dromoka and Ojutai did, didn’t resort to cultural chauvinism like either of them and didn’t enforce an orwellian regime like Ojutai did.

          • Happy The Cat

            no she just made a clan with no home that just pillaged every village they got near and had the nice political view of “if you want a job, kill the person who has it”. even the non dragons wanted to kill so much that the blood lust got a nickname
            Oh, also they were cannibals, not that that is an “evil” thing but it is slightly frowned upon normally.

      • Fael

        You got a point, but hey! that’s unfair. They are not mono white.

  • Get hyped for evil Avacyne and the Power Puff Girls

  • Zombie

    15/15 Kills Emrakul

    Emrakul now downgraded to: 2/10 Dies to Clip Wings.

    • Atarka Effreet

      The farther away we go from Rise of the Eldrazi, the worse Emrakul becomes.

  • Kevan Kramer

    I love when meh cards get better the more players you add to the game. It is a common, so it ok that it is meh.

  • Deadly Berry

    Mono black Avacyn confirmed. The dream *_*

    Edit: That angel looks a bit possessed.

    • Nanya

      I want a Mono Black Akroma

    • Atarka Effreet

      COUGHemrakulCOUGH

  • Happy The Cat

    you know, with some re-animator magic we can take those broken wings and learn to fly again.

  • Arcus Diabolus

    So Wizards are finally killing off the last plane of angels where they were actually safe and worth a damn.

    Im so tired of this bullshit. Let me have my tribal without worrying about whenever every plane’s angels throughout the multiverse going completely extinct.

    We get it, you hate angels, this was overly apparent in BFZ, now cut it out.

    • Fael

      Uhum … Serra’s Realm, Bant, Zendikar, and the Boros angels almost extinguished themselves in the first block of Ravnica..
      But let’s give them another chance. Maybe they can think something better than kill them all.

      • Atarka Effreet

        Uhh wasn’t Bant destroyed? If not, why does it say so in the Journey into Nyx fat pack booklet?
        Oh wait… never mind.

    • Falconfly

      You do realise that angels are White’s iconic, right? They wouldn’t kill them off.

      And if you want angels, the Machine Orthodoxy has plenty.

      • Arcus Diabolus

        There are literally no planes left where they are still active to any reasonable degree. Bant’s are getting slaughtered, Serra’s Realm was erased from the multiverse, Zendikar’s angels are pretty much extinct, and Boros angels were massacred in the first Ravnica block, and we will most likely never return to Dominaria, so those angels are pretty much nonexistent as well, not that there are very many of them to begin with.

        The very last plane were there are still a good number of them is Innistrad, and they are getting shafted now. Its getting so bad its actually affecting gameplay now, with the sheer lack of angels in BFZ. The entire block only saw us 4 of them.

        • Fael

          Take it easy, the lack of angels in BFZ is because of this, a next block full of them.
          Maybe it’s necessary discuss about what are the Angels. For me, your worries are fair. But thinking about the annihilation of the heaven’s host around the multiverse, I never found a incoherence if we take note of their planes’ story.
          (I’m still waiting an angel PW)

        • Ryū

          Is the guild leader of Boros not an angel? Even Orzhov has angels. The Gateless are now gaining support from the angels as well.

          • Arcus Diabolus

            Sure, but still means the number of angels on Ravnica is still falling. Orzhov isn’t even about angels I might add. They are more about spirits and thrulls than angels. Of the guilds of Ravnica, Boros is the only one with any real angel support, and they got shafted back in the original Ravnica block. Granted, yes, they are still a bunch of angels on the plane, but they are far from safe from another massacre and I highly doubt we are going to see angel tribal support come out of Boros like we had in Bant, Zendikar and Innistrad.

          • Buttery

            According to the Ravnica books, most of the angels dissapeared because why not. A few returned because Argus Kos was in need of saving, but we still dont know where the other angels are for the most part.

          • Arcus Diabolus

            Dead. Dimir explicitly slaughtered most of them, especially those from boros.

        • Falconfly

          Bant’s aren’t getting slaughtered without recovery. Also, angels are mana constructs; just as creative did an asspull with Boros angels,o they an revie any lanes if the feel like it

          • Arcus Diabolus

            If I remember correctly, the whole reason grixis is even invading was because malfagor craved angel flesh. He’s literally waging a war (and winning) so he can kill and eat angels. So yes, I would argue that they are getting slaughtered.

          • Falconfly

            But he’s now dead.

        • Deadly Berry

          Well Serra created angels along with the plane if I’m not mistaken. It was never stated if they were a creation of her own imagination or a copy of others she saw in her many journeys. I’m sure another plane with angels will come some time.

          • Arcus Diabolus

            50 bucks says they will hardly be relevant. Like, at all. Nothing like what they were in Zendikar or Innistrad, where they were either exterminated or become demon wannabes soon to be exterminated.

            These last two blocks are really shafting me.

        • Daniel Gilmore

          Hey, Goblins got the raw end of the deal during that block, too! At least your tribal legendary is actually a bomb, Zada really only works in decks with lots of combat tricks.

          • Arcus Diabolus

            But at least there are many planes where goblins are actually alive.

    • Ryū

      As far as BFZ goes, the only two supported tribes were allies and eldrazi, so none of the other popular tribes came out on top there either.

  • michael ciriaco

    so just worse plummet that gets around hex proof?

  • Silverwolf600

    Wait this doesn’t make since I’m almost certain that’s Sigarda and although it gets around hexproof and indestructible Sigarda prevents sacrifice effects.

    • Kameenook

      It is more likely Gisela in my eyes.

      • Happy The Cat

        wrong armor and she uses dual swords, not a flaming sword. It looks like a Seraph of Dawn or some other menial angel that’s been blooded up pretty badly

        • Deadly Berry

          And Gisela wears some cleavage *wink*

        • PheonixTheFox

          Probly just an angel of flight goldnight

    • Angrygnome

      Sigarda uses a scythe/polearm, not a sword.

      From everything I’m seeing in the picture, I think the angel in question is actually Seraph of the Dawn. Red hair, white tabard, glowing sword.

  • Darius Chiang

    Good sideboard for vs flyers, especially vs Thunderbreak Regent and Dragonlord Ojutai.
