+1/+1 over Serra Angel but 2cc more. I really don't understand what's wrong with these set choices. Even if they are just reprints.

I've been getting the feeling since Innistrad that they are actively trying to slow down the format. I think that post-rotation, they are going to very much succeed, and I don't think that it will be a bad thing. Smile
Limited finisher for sure
This is its first time as an uncommon
I want this for its name and I want the art to be as epic as the name implies.
good in limited.
wotc just stabbed my childhood memories.

Ends Limited games.  Maybe, anyway.  With all these big cards this might not be enough.

From the other cards we've seen, the format doesn't lool like it'll be slow. Though they should have modified this card rathern than reprinting it.

Oh well, I guess the "creatures are overpowered" people will be happy about this. 
Cool. Finally an angel in this set that sucks.
Pretty expensive but still a decent finisher in limited.

Seems pretty solid, solid in limited for sure, but the expense I think is on the mark considering that there is an angel that makes them cheaper.

Cool card to get reprinted at a lower rarity.
Crossing my fingers for the original art!

But seriously, what's next? Seraph

I love it when they take cards that aren't good enough to be rares anymore and bump them down to uncommon.

Serra Angel and Sengir Vampire were uncommons originally, but got bumped up to rare later. This was generally considered a bad move, so they were reverted. Volcanic Dragon and Archangel both originated from an era when 6 or higher mana cost creatures were virtually always rare (a few green creatures like craw wurm being the exceptions) and generally unimpressive for their price. They would have been uncommons if they were created today. So, hardly surprising.
