Gatecrash Preview: Deathpact Angel

Two removal spells will be required for this one

And let’s not forget the cute little token it produces:

Pretty hard to crack this in a pack

Pretty cute card overall. You can do fancy things like combine it with Illusionist’s Bracers to get another Angel in play if there are more than one in your graveyard. It’s still a 5/5 flying for six mana and doesn’t ‘die’ to cards like Ultimate Price . It can be negated by other cute tricks like Lazav, Dimir Mastermind but it remains pretty efficient overall.

It’s nice to see they didn’t print another ‘enters the battlefield’ angel as they were becoming a tad numerous. Either way, none of them could be ‘blinked’ with Restoration Angel. The scythe is a pretty nice touch to the card’s artwork. I can see this being played in an Esper control deck for those that would rather play it over Obzedat, Ghost Council. Plus, it’s non-legendary and you can afford to spam them out. Unless of course, your opponent is playing Wrath effects and Snapcaster Mages.In which case, you probably want to just rop one at a time.
