Darksteel Angel by JTMS Darksteel Angel by JTMS
So, I love MtG, and I noticed this art for the teaser for Mirrodin Pure (which doesn't exist - sadly, damn those Phyrexians) was being underused on custom cards. I decided to fix this. Unfortunately, I don't actually know who did the art, as I couldn't find it. Regardless, I think with all the -1/-1 counter and proliferate now, this isn't too badly broken. Feedback = awesome.

Hmm.
I think a way to balance this card a little more and make it not a blightsteel colossus for Platinum Angel it should probably be

7
Flying
Indestructible.
You can't lose the game.
4/4

The difference being I can still pull off an alternate win con, but I can't beat you down or poison you. Because most mass removal won't do jack against this now.

Still, an awesome concept and great art.

Maybe Add: "Tap: You may Remove any number of poison counters from target player or -1/-1 counters from traget creature. For each counter removed this way, Darksteel Angel gains Hexproof for one consective turn. When you activate this ability, Darksteel Angel loses Indestructiblity until end of turn."

it shows how a mirridion Pure might've come about if the Mirridions had been a bit luckier with their timing.

alt suggestion: make a 'PureSteel'/'Pristine' Angel with these abilities.

Where'd you get the art? It's totally legit.

From Wizards themselves. They weren't telling for some time whether it was going to be Mirrodin Pure or New Phyrexia, so they released images for both.

Sadly, as of New Phyrexia, this card is actually underpowered.

I'm just so glad that Innistrad came to steamroll Phyrexian strategies.

I agree with what several people have already said. An increase in the cast cost from 8 to 9 would seem appropriate given the fact that indestructibility is a huge add-on for a this already effective card. No longer can simple destroy spells and effects work, people would have to go out of their way to get some exile removal or sacrifice removal, unless they're playing blue where bounce removal is the name of the game. Good card overall, my friend was hoping this card would exist in "Mirrodin Pure" which never happened. I'm sure that if it was Mirrodin Pure, we would've seen this card for sure.
