Here it is... all the big and bad rolled into one card. Akroma - she flies, she first strikes, she tramples, she has haste, and she doesn't tap to attack. She laughs at Red and Black. She's the Dread Pirate Roberts, and she's here for your SOUL...!

She's too slow to play in high level constructed, but in Table top casual play, she would be fun. In limited, you play her. Find a way to go white, and just play her. If she hits the board, and they can't Pacify her somehow, you win.

Constructed - 3
Limited - 5

Friday - Akroma, Angel of Wrath
This creature has to have the most keyworded abilities of any card (6, or 7 if they keyword the "doesn't tap to attack" ability eventually). And you pay a hefty price for it. But I think it's worth it. This is a creature that is very hard to get rid of, and will rule the board once she hits.
Ditto the above for limited.
Constructed: 3.5 (simply because of its high mana cost)
Limited: 5

Akroma, Angel of Wrath

Hi, cast me and win the game.  thanks.  8 mana is a bit pricey,  but she
doesn't come with the alternate-play restrictions phage does,  and all those
abilities mean a short path to victory.  in limited though,  8 mana is pushing the limit of what is considered playable,  especially in a block with cycling lands.  she'll still win games if she comes out.

constructed - 3.2
limited - 3.3


Akroma, Angel of Wrath

First thought when I saw earlier last week was WOW! nice drawing, 8 mana, too slow.  The right casting cost too.  W/U control maybe, anything else ehhh....

Limited-Win? It kills? Yeah it does!



8 mana for a really big Swiss Army knife. I would say that Haste makes her playable and she is one heck of a beat stick but at 8 mana I donít know how often you will see her in play. I wish her abilities were focused and directed to a specific strategy, tactic, or game situation. If itís in your deck I think it indicates that you donít know what your deck needs to focus on.

Constructed: Well, 8 mana is a lot for constructed decks but if you want to spend the mana on something I guess she isnít a bad choice Ė 2.50

Limited: Just like Phage if you have the colored mana to spend because White is your main color maybe you should probably include her since she will win most games for you when she comes into play, otherwise you will never get to cast her Ė 3.50 (if White is main color)
