Serra Avenger

Creature — Angel

You can't play Serra Avenger during your first, second, or third turns of the game.

Flying, vigilance

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!

Your sideboard is interesting. What matchup do you bring Archangel Avacyn  Flip in for? Also Serra Avenger seems kinda random?

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.

Does Drana, Liberator of Malakir have a spot here? Maybe for a copy of Serra Avenger

I like most of my sideboard as is, but I'm open to suggestions.

After feedback from a friend, I'm probably going to drop all of the Serra Avengers and go for 2 Dromoka's Command or 2 Journey to Nowhere, with the extra card going... somewhere. Maybe Lyra, maybe Aurelia. I feel like 4 Lyras is too much, I'll end up with two of her in hand, and while you're right that she's got a massive target on her back, that still feels like too much for a legendary.

Regarding Cast Out, Ixalan's Binding, and others like them, my feeling is that the step from 3 drop to 4 drop is huge and really cuts into their usefulness. Plus, 4 is where I want to start dropping all my big angels ;)
