  • Silveros

    I’m not saying this card is bad, but Linvala should stick to keeping silence.

    • Nharzhool

      At least it’s better than the 2015 Avacyn.

  • poop

    seems kind of thragtusk’y, I think thragtusk is better :p

  • Happy The Cat

    so Timely Reinforcements stapled to a 5/5 flyer, that 8 power in the air can end games

  • kmk888

    Stupidly playable. A good curve topper for several midrange or control decks.

  • blahblahblahbla

    Near to useless in EDH, but seems like a strong 6 drop for standard.

    • nightshade88

      Well… in EDH you have more chances to be at a disadvantage in life total and creature count (if you are playing multi-player) and since it only needs at least one opponent to have more life than you and at least one opponent, net necessarily the same, to have more creatures than you, it has more chances to proc both effects.

      Not strong enough to be a commander, allright, but still a nice card to have at hand in some situations… Obviously all depends on how the meta is in your local commander games and how much competitive it is.

  • Nharzhool

    Damn you, Wizards! Why a 3/3 Angel?! Why can’t you just leave them at 4/4? I don’t want to have to get other Angel tokens…

    • Melissa Juice

      For balance purposes.

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    Not really mythic in my mind but it’s a nice enough card.

  • DJ Pad

    Meh, such a boring design, could have been done better. I doubt it will see much play at 6-mana in any format, but may make a splash in standard.

  • Zombie

    Seems kinda like this is only Mythic because they tacked Linvala’s name onto it.

    What a garbage Mythic… It’s even overcosted, to boot.

    Don’t get me wrong, it’s an alright card, but this could have easily been a Rare and not Linvala and it would have made infinitely more sense and it wouldn’t be nearly as depressingly boring.

    • kasigah

      I agree. It’s not a /bad/ card, but for the new Linvala, it’s rather… underwhelming.

      • Zombie

        I felt the same way about the M15 Avacyn, as well. Good card, but it just didn’t feel like a legendary angel.

  • Huo

    It can compare with two cards, as Timely Reinforcemets, it does not look good at all, but it compares with Thragtusk, it is a decent creature.

  • Nanya

    It’s… Okay. I’ll probably get it, hopefully it’s not too much. Anything over 5 bucks for this is too much.

  • Arcus Diabolus

    I’ll take it. I’ve been waiting on new angels for a while now.

  • MTG fan

    It is a nice card depending on the situation. I mean it isn’t the best in a life gain deck as you will probably be ahead in life total but the second ability is a nice bonus to receive. She could have been better though.

  • Bostorket

    Linvala, Keeper of Not Much From Last Time :/

  • Dominic Ng

    seems unbeatable in some flicker edh

  • Mr.Mayhem631

    Eh. Played against it at the prerelease. Dies to removal.

    • nightshade88

      … Like almost everything else?

  • MTG fan

    Thunderclap wyvern could go okay with this card if you have less creatures and life…
    White-blue flying creature deck?
