I pulled an Akroma from Legions when I was 14 years old and by this point I had been playing mtg for a few years so I really knew how big of a deal Akroma was at the time. The best old cards were the non creature spells and the best new cards seem to be mostly creatures. Modern matches can make for some explosive battles, but the battles can constantly turn as the power is in the permanents which can almost always be dealt with it's just getting to do so fast enough (unless you are not equipped with cards needed in your sideboard) and the battles take a little time to get going so you have a chance. Legacy matches get started in turn 1 and murder you on turn 2 (if you're lucky) lol. My Legacy deck was old non creature spells and new (at the time of 2003) powerful creatures like Akroma and it kicked ass. I could get turn 2 wins without being completely mainstream. It was a reanimate deck, but didn't use most of the traditional cards, just some. It was different and fun (for me haha) none of my friends liked going against that deck, it was just too fast and lethal with cards like akroma. Now 15 years later with many way stronger creatures than Akroma....imagine how nasty my legacy deck is now ; )

Linvala, Keeper of silence is the most expansive card I own.

Platinum angel is one of my favorites! Just recently pulled one from a booster.

I love Linvala

No avacyn angle of hope
Shade Slinger (11 months ago)
If Avacyn Angel of Hope isn't on this list, this list is thereby rendered illegitimate.
Ryan Davis (11 months ago)
Exalted Angel!
Oak Guy (11 months ago)
Nizza, keep up the good work! You are in my Top Three MTG Content Creators. How do I score that? For subject matter I give 1 pt, with current relevance to my decks getting 2 pts. For originality I give 1 pt, with truly unique content getting 2 pts. for NO DRAMA you get infinity points. The time you spend on your research is commendable and appreciated. P.S. the remaining two in my Top Three are other Non-Drama Kings Voidmage Gamer and Budget MTG Tech , and I don't think any of you are done racking up the points yet...

Iona is one of my favorite MTG card with progenitus and kalastria healer
Nothing like ramping iona against mono color decks lol. Great way to lose friends 😂

no angel of invention :(
Dylan Wight (1 year ago)
These high-curve angels such as Akroma and Iona are always popular in green-white Big Beats style EDH decks, namely because the format is generally slow enough to support their spot on the curve and because they offer an extremely powerful set of abilities in a format able to make excellent use of their abilities. Other all-stars such as Mom and the Kids (Avacyn, Bruna, Gisela and Sigarda) also pop up regularly for their excellent utility effects or classic creature bomb status. Suffice to say, EDH is the format where angels have always seen their most frequent use.
Darkmage1293 (1 year ago)
I was ready to make a "No Serra Angel on the list, 0/10", joke, but hey, Honorable Mention for a generally solid card. I have Iona, but I don't have the means to make her terribly decent in any deck strategy. I also love Sigarda, even if I don't touch green. Her art is awesome.
Austin Kohler (6 months ago)
Darkmage1293 haha Serra is like the most reprinted card. I have like 5 different versions of her.

I love using angels as curve toppers. My favorites are Gisela, Aurelia and Baneslayer. I love Firemane Avenger as well.

I remenber playing Polymorph into Iona. It was her or Progenitus at that time and it was so fun :D
Caleb Martin (1 year ago)
I want an un- legendary creature named "sarah, angel". Also, I'm super pissed because I lost a baneslayer angel that I got in a trade
kenneth kujala (1 year ago)
Shouldn't name this flat "top 10". It is "top 10 tournament success". A top 10 angels list would look different.
Unknowntitan (1 year ago)
+Nizzahon Magic it's more of a how many people shoved "insert card name" into their decks
Nizzahon Magic (1 year ago)
Sure it would. I'm sure you can find plenty of other Top 10 Angels list out there based simply on "sweetness" criteria, though, I like doing it my way -- it makes it more about Magic history, and that's what I'm interested in.
Breakfast With Nerds (1 year ago)
Great video! Angels are one of our favorite creature types in MTG.

Of all the LISTS out there, this series is great because it has the facts backing it up. Great job!
FluffyFractalshard (1 year ago)
i expected archangel of thune somewhere on this list.. can some1 tell me why its still so expensive?
FluffyFractalshard (1 year ago)
oh ok never mind, we all make mistakes. but thanks for the insightful answer! :)
Nizzahon Magic (1 year ago)
FluffyFractalshard Actually, she should have made the list at 9. She has 20 points, so I made a mistake. She sees play in decks running the infinite life combo with Spikeweaver in Modern Chord of Calling decks, so there why she is expensive
FluffyFractalshard (1 year ago)
in what format? edh then?
James Miller (1 year ago)
Because she kicks ass!
GraeYstaG (1 year ago)
Again with this shit criteria based list???
Nizzahon Magic (1 year ago)

Every single person in the Aether Hub needs to learn how to white balance their footage. Everything else is so good, that alone will make the channel so much better.

Praetor's Council (1 year ago)
The issue with this is the fact that creatures with "dead" creature types (usually what one off creature types become) are changed through oracle changes to be a different type.
Nizzahon Magic (1 year ago)
Many creatures have more than one type.
uiuiuiseraph (1 year ago)
Shouldn't name this flat "top 10". It is "top 10 tournament success". A top 10 angels list would look very different imho.
uiuiuiseraph (1 year ago)
Sure it's totally viable, it's just a little missleading from the title. But no actual critique.

Original art, old border Akroma, Angel of Wrath is my favorite angel! Glad she made the list.
Matthew Spell (1 year ago)
love the top 10 series
Sebat Hadah (1 year ago)
where is Bruna, Light of alabaster and Angel of the Dire hour. how did these not see successful tournament play?
Keigan Scott-Lynch (1 year ago)
Angel of the Dire Hour was only ever printed in a Commander set and was therefore never legal in any constructed format.
Nizzahon Magic (1 year ago)
Gerald Mardiska Neither of them did. Fun on the kitchen table, though!
Hypnostedon (1 year ago)
Akroma <3
Tatsuhiro Satou (1 year ago)

Tatsuhiro Satou (1 year ago)
+Nizzahon Magic im not sure about that i didn't start playing till the end of the return to ravnica block and didn't play constructed outside of edh till shadows over innistrad
Nizzahon Magic (1 year ago)
Not at any significant event.
Tatsuhiro Satou (1 year ago)
+Nizzahon Magic reanimators played her in standard
Nizzahon Magic (1 year ago)
Tatsuhiro Satou She never saw any play
Just want to repeat that that's why some youtubers remove the comments section. The comments are filled with useless comments like that so it would be great to stop saying thing just to get the attention of everybody.

Love theses top 10 videos and love Angels!
Skwarka (1 year ago)
The first thing that happens during the upkeep step is the game processing any triggered abilities that fire off at the beginning of the upkeep step. This occurs before any player gets priority, so while you can activate Selfless Spirit's ability during the upkeep, it's too late to get Avacyn to trigger during that same upkeep step. I'm assuming that what you are trying to do is give your creatures indestructible during the same turn that Avacyn transforms, but this is impossible with those two cards unless an effect is creating multiple upkeep steps in the same turn.
Nizzahon Magic (1 year ago)
What I meant to say was just that the Spirit can flip your ARchangel Avacyn, not that they are still indestructible.
Adam Mohammed (1 year ago)
do demons!
Nizzahon Magic (1 year ago)
