Angelic Skirmisher - 4WW
Creature - Angel (Rare)
At the beginning of each combat, choose first strike, vigilance, or lifelink. Creatures you control gain that ability until end of turn.
"A keen mind wields an army as a deft hand wields a sword."
It's important to note that Angelic Skirmisher says each combat, meaning you can choose a different ability on you turn and on your opponent's turn. One strategy might be to pick vigilance on your turn so that you have plenty of blockers with first strike or lifelink.
Just imagine following up an Angelic Skirmisher with Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, gaining double the amount of life or dealing twice as much first strike damage to any blockers.
It doesn't matter what color your limited deck may be, the abilities that Angelic Skirmisher grant your creatures can have a warping effect on the game. That's reason enough to always first pick it or find a way to make it work in your deck.
