Rate the card

I had a choice between two cards during my last draft and wasn't sure if I made the right choice, so I'd like to get everyone's opinion. Pick One Pack One would you take Angelic Skirmisher or Firemane Avenger? One was foil but I'm not saying which as the value outside of draft wasn't the point. Also thing about it as a redraft so you can't keep the card. I went with the Skirmisher and it worked out marvlously but I also really like the Avenger. Is it just a matter of taste? I like that one is only a four drop but it is two colors and less powerful.
It might jus' be the Timmy in me but picking through those options every combat step is sure fun.
If you're srs about this, I think avenger is better.  Sometimes you just won't hit 6 mana.

Why does everyone think I'm phantom lancer? QFT:

I hope all this helps you to see things in a greater light—and understand that Magic: the Gathering was really created by extraterrestials using Richard Garfield as a medium. The game itself reflects the socio-psycho realtivity between living beings, and the science that takes precedence over them—to define reality for them all (like telekinesis, weather, scientific reaction, phenomenon, ingenuity, how the brain works, etc.). I'd also bet there is an entity floating thousands of miles above us, looking down on the current state of game, shaking its fist like... "Wtf are you doing?! You're getting it all screwed up!". Awkward—to be evolved, and yet still subject to the ladder that is the concepts of the game. In this case, misconception, corruption, and deception. With the realities of each color becoming distorted (through oblivious designers), leading the game to reflect a false state of reality that warps the understanding that other people have about those things. For example, people thinking that white could be anything except pure good. This shouldn't be too far off though, I mean...Magic is designed based on reality after all, so that entity (those entities) should be subject to those things. Anyways, I guess when you're busy doing space stuff you can't always be around to ensure quality control. It's no wonder they choose Garfield, they're so much alike; that's exactly what happened to him and Magic.

I'm confused, what do you mean "if you're srs about this"? I didn't take the time to ask which card to take if I wasn't serious. That being said I think Orzhov hits six land almost every time, but maybe Boros wins or loses sometimes without getting to six land. I think it's a tough call.

Avenger I like the best, even splashed in Orzhov. I've annihilated every opponent who played Angelic Skirmisher and haven't lost a match with a deck containing Firemane Avenger.

Tarnations! We must be at an impasse. Cause I have never won with the avenger and never lost with that there Skirmisher. Maybe they are both 5.0?
In my experience, Skirmisher is far better at turning a game around.
Check out my cube!

Since i've got a good eye for color so it looks great to people who don't get the "joke" (it's a niceley divided circle after all: the outline gives you 4-6 "regions" to work with), this has actually got me put on platter design more often, resulting in Phyrexia's presence at more private and industry events.
