Angelic Destiny is one of several allegedly new Magic cards that are hidden within the program files of Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 by Wizards of the Coast and Stainless Games, which is now available. Because many other cards in the game are featured in the 2012 Magic Core Set M12, one can speculate that Angelic Destiny might be in it too (although there’s also a chance Angelic Destiny might be from this year’s fall expert expansion set Innistrad).
Angelic Destiny – 2WW
Enchantment – Aura (Mythic Rare)
Enchanted creature gets +4/+4, has flying and first strike, and is an Angel in addition to its other types.
When enchanted creature dies, return Angelic Destiny to its owner’s hand.
To say that Angelic Destiny is an enchantment of “Mythic Proportions” would be an understatement. There are no other auras that yield the same amount of power as Angelic Destiny.
It doesn’t matter what creature Angelic Destiny enchants. Be it Gideon’s Lawkeeper or a token creature produced from Elpeth Tirel, Angelic Destiny will make any of your “innocent” creatures into a giant fearsome Angel.
Sigil of the Empty Throne might make a good addition in a deck seeking to abuse Angelic Destiy. Like Rancor, Angelic Destiny is amazing because even if your opponent may be holding several different removal spells or board sweepers you’ll still be able to cast Angelic Destiny again. And again. And again. At one point or another your opponent will run out of answers and you’ll win.
Unless an opponent uses a Counterspell (such as Spell Crumple), manages to exile it, or simply gets rid of the creature you plan to attach Angelic Destiny to, they’ll quickly be in for a world of hurt.
How will you abuse Angelic Destiny?
