    Anyone who is upset about A. this card getting a slot in FtV or B. This card getting one of the alt art slots…is a communist

    • Derek Niles

      Come to think of it…I wonder if this counts towards the amount of alternate art cards in the set considering this was the art on an oversized serra angel that already exists.

      It probably uses the alt art slot anyway but if not that would be cool so we get more new arts all together

      • YouGotFranked

        I honestly don’t mind if it uses an alt art slot. We already have 2 Terese Nielsen’s arts and 1 Rebecca Guay’s art. This set is already a winner with only 3 cards revealed.

        And to be honest, Serra Angel is probably the most deserving card to get some love from an FTV Angels, even more considering it might be the last time it is printed with the death of core sets and all.

        • Hedronal

          Core sets are gone, but there are still supplementary products. It’s not the same, but it is something.

      • Zombie

        It’s art that’s already been used before, so I don’t know if it really counts as “new” art.

    • Patrik

      I personally could not care less…except that I find original art much better:)

      • DJ Pad

        I would have preferred the original art as well as it was fairly iconic to the game.

      • Melissa Juice

        Ick. The original art is so bad.

    • James Stewart

      I’m pretty sure this isn’t an alternate art slot… this art has been floating around the web for quite some time…

    • Melissa Juice

      What is this, the ’50s? “Communist” isn’t much of an insult.

      • Nharzhool

        Missed the joke there as well, I see…see above comment about sense of humour.

  • ShahrazadMan

    That Rebecca Guay value.

  • Nharzhool

    Mmhmm…a 25 cent uncommon being slapped in the FTV pack! I have four of these and use them in every single deck! Perhaps what happened was someone at WOTC said they needed to print that nice Serra angel, meaning Serra Avenger, but the rest thought he meant this thing. *Edit* was because too few people got the joke…

    • da

      Because now if they reprint her as a common, then I can make a deck with 4 Serra Angels, a common, and uncommon, a rare, and a mythic rare version.

      • Nharzhool

        You know what? If they print her as a common in the next block, all will be forgiven. I will just accept it as a practical joke by WOTC, and laugh about it.

        • Melissa Juice

          If they print her as a common, they’ve sabotaged limited and made a horrible environment. Terrible idea.

          • Nharzhool

            Missing the joke there, I see. It’s okay…not everyone has a sense of humour…

          • Hedronal

            Alternatively, the joke wasn’t that good.

          • Nharzhool

            Now that’s just straight up impossible! Never have I neglected to make any lack of not ungood jokes…

          • Hedronal

            “Never have I neglected” means “I have always”. “Not ungood” means good. You have just stated, in what was a funny joke, a sentence meaning: “I have always made a lack of good jokes.”

    • Devin Tant

      Serra Angel was originally printed in Alpha, and was the first angel printed in Magic. It is no longer powerful or valuable, but has a long and storied history within the game. It was considered one of the largest powerhouses available for deck construction in the early days.

      FTV packs aren’t just about the high dollar reprints. They’re also representative of important figures or cards in magic lore. See also: Dragon Whelp (FTV:Dragons), Kird Ape (Exiled), Nev Disk (Relics), Cao Cao (Legends), Desert (Realms), Char (20), Virtue’s Ruin (Annihilation).

      • Nharzhool

        It was more a rhetoric question than anything. I know why it is being printed…I was just making an unnecessary fuss. I don’t actually mind that much. I would have just preferred the slot be taken up by something like Jenara, or Sigarda.

        • Devin Tant

          Ah, didn’t realize it was rhetoric. Thought I’d help spread information. :)

          There’s still a good number of slots remaining, so we might still see Jenny or the ‘Gard. And that Guay art is fabulous.

      • JmLyan

        Nevinyrral’s disc is a staple in EDH though, so unlike the rest are actually rather valuable.

    • Melissa Juice

      Are you kidding? This was the very MtG angel. It should absolutely be here.

      • Nharzhool

        In fact: yes, I was joking…but it was a poorly-written joke.

        • Melissa Juice

          Ahh. The importance of good writing, everyone! Communication is key.

  • wwww

    Not very surprised in fact. This card is a classic since 1993.

  • Melissa Juice

    Gorgeous art. Mmmmm.

  • Jaime Hubster

    They finally reprinted Serra Angel! I can quit crackin’ all them alpha boosters now. #ThanksObama

    • ObamaFTW

      I m soo happy ,, Ive been saving up money for the past years for an alpha booster just for the chance to get this card, now I may spend it on a awful mox maybe. #ThanksObama

  • Mick Cortella

    I understand since serras angels a classic but really a mythic?

    • Melissa Juice

      All Vault cards are printed as mythics. So, yes.

  • Kroveprench

    This is the first printing of this art that’s been sitting around for years and I’m so pleased

  • Kameenook

    I want no more from this set, this is enough.

  • Aaron Seet

    is that Rebecaa Guay art on the original Serra Angel? It seems to be

    • Kaiyla Bradford

      Yes, the art is over 15 years old. When they changed the original serra angel art they chose the other guy instead of this one. This one is still the best art of all. It was only available as a print or oversized card. Makes me happy to see it.

  • Ryan Walter

    “The Deck”. The lone reason this card is more deserving a slot in this set then any other angel. Control players should revere it,as this is what started it all. Sad part is,most players looking at this card or commenting in this section dont even know what The Deck is.

    • Kameenook

      Please, tell me, what is “The Deck”????

      • Grillo

        First MTG worlds champion deck, sometimes just called “TheDeck” a hard control deck thath included 4 Serra Angels AND Vesuvian Dopplegangers for the win, also including the P9 didn´t hurted it at all.

        • wwww

          Also it, I think, the first deck that founded the concept of “Card Advantage” that we still use today.

          • wwww

            Concept that is used not only in MTG, but in a lot of other card games.

        • Kameenook

          Thanks, I wasn’t around for that, but I know from Casual play how terrifying this angel is.

  • TacoBellHero

    I’ve seen enough, Just take my money
    Arts amazing <3 <3 <3
    And its not angels if they didn't include the originals.
    I agree that this set will be worth it.

    • SketchyPluto

      And if they include Baneslayer Angel it’ll be EVEN better.

  • Kaiso

    Serra <333
    Now where is Sigarda :(

  • Aarhg

    I love how her hair matches the mythic symbol, and both contrast with the blue background. What a lovely piece of art.

  • Happy The Cat

    alright, all predictions are right so far, come on baneslayer!

  • lonewolf

    sooo if they putting uncommon card there they could reprint 6th ed archangel too?
    all i want is just art (japanese edition is nice too)

  • Happy The Cat

    Do they not teach angels how to hold swords? you HIT THEM with that part
