Quote from ChelseaHow about some Hexproof? Her 5/5 Flying Hexproof friend seems like a thousand times more powerful being.
Quote from MerixHas anyone thought of how this works with soulbond? There might be some sort of hexproof or shroud granted by soulbond. It would make this much more playable. Not to mention all the other effects you could pump it with.
Quote from ilovesaprolingstoo bad this doesn't attract more girls to the game...
Quote from BelieveinapathyIs everybody missing the point here? She's not bad because "she can be answered." She's bad because you have to have 8 mana sources to cast her, needs board presence to be used to her full potential (and you should have won by the time you could cast her in that situation anyways) and on TOP of that can then be answered by multiple 1cmc cards (tragic slip, vapor snag, etc).
Quote from Blackbird71That's just it though - what is she good for besides a Kaalia of the Vast deck?
I definitely don't expect every mythic to be useful in competitive formats, I even prefer it that for the most part, they're not. But for the namesake of a large set, and a character who has been heralded as the ultimate power for good on the plane since the block began, I somehow expected more.
From a mechanical perspective, she seems very plain, and her cost too high to find a good home in any deck that would want her effect.
From a flavor perspective, she feels, well, "incomplete" is the best word I can come up with. The indestructible protection is nice, but where is the demonslaying "destroyer of evil" side of Avacyn?
Quote from MonopomanHey protip you can actually prevent Geth's Verdict if you have something else to sac! wow!
Quote from ScarapThis is another argument I never really understood, either. To me, she makes perfect sense. She's the Guardian Angel of all of Innistrad, so when she's on your field she protects all of your permanents (by making them indestructible). Flavor wise she makes perfect sense, it's an easy, non convoluted way of invoking the flavor of a guardian angel (Like Aegis Angel was, except Avacyn is obviously way more powerful).
