Serra Avenger Discussion

I would look into Vitality first, as she's a cheap creature that starts as a 4/4 in the early game before your life total goes below 25, then gets bigger once you recover. Segovian is a bulk common, and is just hilarious. Serra Avenger is powerful, but comes with a built-in limitation where you can't play it when you need it the most. And Resplendent Angel can make more angels as your lifegain starts up.
And good luck with the rest of your league!

I feel as though Serra Avenger is an interesting option if you are running anthems and control pieces- if your plan turns 1-3 is to just play path to exile/thoughtsieze, it has no drawback.
That said, a 3/3 flying vigilance is a lot less impressive than it used to be.

Hey Enral! I have never used Archangel Avacyn Flip yet but always wanted to bring her in against a control/midrange environment. I usually take Gideon of the Trials and Serra Avenger in. I guess she is more of a theme/Lore card!

There's also Serra Avenger . If you went into the advanced gatherer search and typed "only" and "cast" in as keywords in the rules text box, you could probably find all similar cards.

Thanks for the suggestion!
...when i cam across the eldritch evolution combo i playtested a bunch with the vizier druid version. There Duskwatch Recruiter Flip is a must have.
In the current version i don't see why it would be even "good", let alone "great" - compared to Life's Legacy it creates the following problems:
- it costs 2G to draw 1, instead of 1G to draw 2-5 (sometimes 6) - yes i need my land drops
- it introduces another vulnerability, namely removal spells (beside counterspells), and can waste my turn 2, if the opponent manages to kill it before my next turn
- i don't want to contemplate playing the hybrid of Serra Avenger & (a worse) Heartless Summoning, that will be on the field (and can be killed with removal) from turn 2 onwards - if i want to use it on turn 4...
- as a creature its brutally inferior to my 2 drops Voice of Resurgence, Strangleroot Geist & Scavenging Ooze are all leagues ahead of it.
