MTG: Top 20 Angels
Taking a look at the best angels ever printed!
Angels have been around since the very beginning of MTG. They’re a very much part of the MTG world and angels have appeared in many sets. There have been over sixty printed so far, and more are on the way! However, what are the best angels? Let’s find out!
Honorable Mention: Akroma’s Memorial
Though technically not an angel, this card turns all your creatures into the one of the most insane cards ever! They all turn into Akroma, Angel Of Wrath! Or rather, they gain all her abilities. It’s a card that costs a lot but is so worth it. Why bother putting Akroma, Angel Of Wrath in a deck when you can pay the same amount of mana and have an army of them? Why indeed? Well, mostly cause Akroma, Angel Of Wrath is cool. Now onto real angels…
#20 Angel Of Despair
Ugh, I’d be in despair too if this were my rare in a booster pack. All joking aside, this isn’t a terrible card, just not the best of the angels on this list. It has a high cost and destroys a permanent. If it only destroyed a creature then it would be terrible. If it had flash as well then it would be a much better card, but as it stands it is merely a big flying creature that happens to do something else.
#19 Luminous Angel
This card is a little hefty in its mana cost, but it generates some nice flying chump blockers for you. This illustration kicks the crap out of the original from Mirrodin. Based solely on illustration, this one would be in the top ten, but because of its less than desirable casting cost it comes in near the bottom of our list.
Here’s an old and interesting angel. This one steals your opponent’s creatures! A weird trait for a white card, but one that nobody would complain about! Once again, the mana cost is a little high. If it was a 5/5 instead of a 4/4 it would be much better, however it isn’t bad the way it is. Anyhow, this card simply resurrects creatures to fight for you! It’s like the precursor to Adarkar Valkyrie (which we’ll talk about later).
