Worshiping Angels

Not sure about the actual ability but I wish the star ability was something we saw in this last set. Anyway, I wanted another Isaiah angel and somehow got here.

I thought the star on Day of the Lord did something similar to that

It does something similar in the battle phase but I meant some kind of protection in the opening hand kinda thing. Liking stopping delivered from hitting Falling Away or SoG  ;)

Oh neat, another Isaiah Angel  ;)

So choosing it to be warrior class makes it 12/1, and choosing it to not be WC makes it 1/12? Interesting.

Also I like how the mirrored art gave us that one two-headed, v-shaped-torso angel bottom center.
ANB is good. Change my mind.

I thought the art was familiar. So this is just the Second Coming art modified lol.

It's a little early to preview new cards, but here's something that might make the cut in the next set and shuts down Delivered.

Something that stops star cards!

So does this stop stars in the opening round? Stars activate before souls - are they separate phases or two parts of the same phase?

I believe the stars complete and then the LS will negate them.

cool idea, but I agree....we have enough searching and exchanging, and im not sure how thematically an angel worshiping the Almighty brings back a person? The banding makes sense.

Also, how does the exact same referenced being be both a warrior and not at the same time with the context of the verse?

(ps: i thought by the title this was going to be an evil card, lol)

We do have swapping but not usually those locations but I already said I was unsure of the ability for the same reasons.

The purpose of the card was to be flexible in what you wanted i.e. a non Warrior Isaiah angel or a Warrior Revelation angel and vice versa. I suppose with this being a group that maybe some of those members fought battles and some did not, and you get to choose what you want.

Just thought about this ability

"May band to an angel of the same testament. You may set aside this character with a good Dominant from hand or territory for one turn. On return, return those cards to hand to search deck for a good Dominant. Cannot be interrupted."
