Daily Card Redesign #60: Seraph

Daily Card Redesign is a daily Magic: The Gathering design exercise where I randomly choose a card for the scenario of it being killed late during its own set's development, and I design a replacement card that uses the same art, is the same color, is the same rarity, and has a name that, alphabetically, keeps it within the same collector number for the set.


That art! And this is a rare open for any kind of Angel design, really.

So this lady is smiling, and it reminded me of peacefulness, so I thought of doing something like Holy Day. Or, better yet, like the rules text of Empty City Ruse. It's preventing from creatures from even attacking in the first place. That's more appropriate for peacefulness - not preventing damage. Because creatures are still able to attack anyway. Doesn't feel right.

I also like it when Angels "save the day," as they should. Serenity Seraph here (I actually wanted to call this Serenity Angel, but Angel of Serenity already exists, and that would be confusing) makes sure you at least have a chance to attack with her before you die to creatures if this Angel was supposed to be your saving grace.
