was a popular alternative to Fires last year, and
this lady was the reason why. She's absolutely
nuts in limited and in constructed, she seals the
deal. A 4.5 in constructed, a 5 in limited.
card was great in block constructed, and it's
solid in standard. If you're playing in limited,
playing white, and you DON'T draft this card, I
want to money draft you.

Ahhhh, now we're
talking angels. This gal saw lots of play during
the Masques-Invasion type 2 days (not too long
ago). She was the main kill in one of the defining
decks of the time, and for some good reason.
Imagine doing the second part of an Orim's Chant
to your opponent every turn. Not bad, eh? Didn't
In Limited, Miss Blinding is
yet another bomb. I still remember the Nemesis
prerelease where I had to face three opponents
with these babies. I don't recall doing well that
Boy is this card
annoying. It hits you for 2 stupid points but
keeps you from attacking the next turn. In its'
block it was really pretty good because it was
hard to kill. Now with Odyssey and Torment it
dies like a dog. I remember that this stupid
card kept me from a probable T* at the qualifier
for US Nationals last year and I have been mad
about it since then. In current constructed it
is a pretty good card but there are lots better
for the cost.
I love this
card. It greatly punishes decks for being too
simple-minded. If it had been a 1/1 for 2 it
would've been stupendous (its ability is more
important than the damage), but it's still good at
Why is it that most of
the angels are at least playable. And the
ones that aren't just playable are pretty damn
good. Just like this one! :)
Blinding Angel served purpose in a lot of control
decks. However, there were even a few
creatures decks that played it just to hold off
the enemy. I have even seen it cause some
chaos in multiplayer games.
As for limited, I think I would still take it.
It would definitely be in the top 2-3 picks
of the pack.
