Sublime Archangel - 2WW
Creature – Angel (Mythic Rare)
Exalted (Whenever a creature you control attacks alone, that creature gets +1/+1 until end of turn)
Other creatures you control have exalted. (If a creature has multiple instances of exalted, each triggers separately.)
Sublime Archangel can be played third turn with help from a mana dork like Birds of Paradise, and you'll find yourself crossing into the redzone with a healthy 6/5 flyer on turn four. If you managed to play a second turn Gather the Townsfolk, then Sublime Archangel will be an impressive 8/7.
Because Sublime Archangel gives all of your creatures exalted, cards that create token creatures such as Jade Mage, Thraben Doomsayer, Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, and Increasing Devotion can help make Sublime Archangel overwhelmingly powerful the longer a game progresses.
It is without question that Sublime Archangel is a complete house in limited. However with a small toughness of three, Sublime Archangel isn't out of the range from a well timed Incinerate or Searing Spear in Standard. Sublime Archangel faces a larger challenge in eternal fomats like Legacy where it can easily be struck down by Lightning Bolt.
Another drawback to Sublime Archangel is that it commits you to playing numerous threats at once. While exalted is more powerful with the more creatures you have on the battlefield, you'll also be exposing yourself to mass removal spells like Terminus, Devastation Tide, and Day of Judgment.
Sublime Archangel is sure to find a home in an aggressive weenie deck. Red-white humans, abusing Champion of the Parish, makes a great starting point to explore Sublime Archangel's potential.
