One sexy beotch, this lady has tolled the death knell for many a player in one attack step. If you're playing black, this is obviously a card you want in your deck. She's very solid all around, reasonable casting cost, along with the ability to end a game very, very quickly. She has a limited scope in Constructed though, but has found her way into recur decks where she serves as one of the evasive routes to victory. A 5 in limited, a 4 in constructed.


This card is most widely associated with 5-Color Kastle, which was a Darwin Kastle creation for Regionals some many years ago. I never really respected that deck, because I was playing a removal heavy deck, and it was easy to stomp that deck because you could Edict away the Angel after they thought they had killed you. Sucka. It's a really solid creature, though.

Constructed:**(2 Stars)

In Limited I think I like just about every vampire around. They aren't costed too bad and usually have nice abilities. This guy can finish the game with all of the creatures you can't attack with anymore in the late game since they're so small or have no evasion. 

In Constructed, I would just rather use something like Phyrexian Negator.

Fallen Angel has always been a card that has been there and just not quite usable. A 3/3 flyer for 5cc isn't all that bad nowadays anymore, and its special ability can be a killer. Perhaps its underplayed? 

In Limited, this should be a huge pick, but there could be better ones. Still, I'd pick it highly.

Constructed: 3
Limited: 4

Always a solid creature, Fallen Angel usually doesn't get picked for constructed use, since there are other, slightly more efficient, creatures to be used. However, her free sacrifice mechanic is very handy for certain decks, Living Death-based decks included. It's not a narrow card, though, and she should be at least considered for any heavily black deck that gets a lot of creatures in play. 3.5


Fallen Angel is alway sa fun card.  Even recently the "dark fires" decks ran it as another quick kill mechanism.  For those of you unaware it's simple...Fallen Angel + lots of Saproling Burst tokens.  Anyway, I don't have too many issues with this card.  The only downfall for it right now is that Sengir Vampire just got reprinted and fans have always liked him better.  

As for limited, I would definitely take this card if I was even considering black.  I would probably first pick it even.  It's a flier.  It's a deent sized power/toughness.  Also, late in the match it allows you to get rid of your useless small men to punch through for the victory.

Constructed: 3.0
Limited: 4.4

Fallen Angel is excellent in the heat of battle. Sacrifice creatures that are going to be killed anyway for piles of extra damage. This is one card that will always be blocked if it can. As a Black flier, Fallen Angel is pretty much costed, but the ability puts it ahead of the rest.

In constructed, it will help with all the new graveyard tricks, so look for uses of this card with Ichorid. It's passable by itself, so I wouldn't be surprised to see it in experimental new recursive decks. 

When you play this in limited it's more bland, because you won't want to use the ability too often. Still, it's a powerful Black flier, so not too bad at all.

Constructed - 4
Limited - 3


Fallen Angel is a solid creature which has been played quite a bit over history. At 3/3 with flying for 3BB and the ability to pump this card is reasonably priced and fits well in many decks like 5 color Kastle which had lots of smaller creatures to sacrifice for the +2/+1 bonus.

In Limited this card is really good. Flyers are already hard to deal with and pumping makes her very large. A definite 1st pick.

Constructed 4
Limited 4.5
