Quote from ajacobik »I was satisfied. The die was honestly the best part.
Quote from SimicNuggets »I was able to get 3 for MSRP from three different stores, as they didn't allow multiple copies for customers. Not hoarding though, the other two are for friends.
The Akromas, Entreat the Angels, Exalted Angel, and Serra Angel all look exceptional with the foil imo.
Quote from Jenrik »I bought one for $61 free shipping. It seemed fair enough considering Avacyn is already a little over half that price herself.
Quote from Jenrik »Y'all making me jealous getting it at MSRP, though $61 didn't seem so bad. IDK.
Most of this went into decks already. What's left does indeed make good trade fodder. That said, the Rebecca Guay Serra Angel is the highlight of this product of me.
Oh and as a $150 oversized card that couldn't be played in decks before, it's actually the rarest reprint too.

Quote from CrazyMike366"Never attribute to malice that which could also be attributed to a convergence of stupidity and happenstance."
Quote from awnDReya »So I got mine yesterday for $65 plus 10 for shipping, and I'm overall pretty satisfied. Even though I do prefer my own non-foiled versions of Avacyn, Entreat the Angels, Iona, Aurelia, and Archangel of Strife, I don't at all mind having these. I think the only card I was a bit disappointed with is how Iridescent Angel turned out. As a few others have said, I can understand how the "splotchiness" of the foil can turn a few people off. Even if it wasn't using the FtV foiling process, I think it was a mistake to foil in the entire white sky in the background. Also, I felt that the art could have zoomed in on her just a little more.
Quote from Daotar »DO we have any idea as to how many of these were made? FTV used to be super limited in quantities, but Annihilation and 20 seemed to have larger print runs. Is Angels also getting a larger print run, like the last two have, and how much bigger is that than the old FTVs?

WOTC is super-cagey about their print runs, but FTV: Dragons was about four per store, IIRC. Stores could order a couple dozen Angels (anyone with a store want to give more accurate numbers?)
