I love this card so much. It allows you to use things that cause you to go to the negative health area, and still be able to do stuff. the only thing I saw people saying of how to kill it was using doom blade, well theres an easy fix to that. use Painter's Servant and declare the color black. Now Platinum Angel becomes black, and therefore is unaffected by doom blade. (P.S. one of my favorite combos is using this with channel and fireball :D Channel might be banned now, but its still good in casual play)

I love this card. Not because of the epic art or strategic value. Not because of any combo. I like it because this is the sort of card that actually tests a persons deck building skills and strategy. Counter decks, token decks, iona, shield of emeria, phague the untouchable, and progenitus do the same thing I'd say. As for those who are complaining about the lack of strategy and how you can kill this so easily. This card is best read as "change all opponents victory condition". It makes creature buffs temporaily useless. It makes burn die a little on the inside. And most importantly it bugs the hell out of monogreen elves. It also opens up a new spectrum of otherwise suicidal combos and can fit into any color of deck, forces the opponent to have a decent range of answers, and is capable of doing significant flying damage, stalls and baits out cards. How many hats does 1 card gotta wear to be loved lol.

Put this angel on the battlefield and you will never lose. If you play her with Progenitus she gets protection from everything also so no opponent's can hurt her.

I don't have this card, but I can tell you it sure is annoying. I would love to have it, because my friend has a myr/platinum angel deck that kills me every time. He equips whispersilk cloak every time he plays it, which makes it have shroud and be unblockable. Then, if I can kill it, he uses Bringer of the White Dawn to revive it, or darksteel forge. If he had Elspeth, Knight-Errant he would be unstoppable. at this point, he's pretty darn good.

You know, it's hilarious that after 4 or 5 years, people still don't seem to appreciate just how good and useful this card is. Even those that 4 and 5 starred the card. Sure, it costs 7 mana, but did all of you forget how easy it is, in almost any format, to either accelerate to or simply just cheat the thing into play? I've had this thing on the table by turns 2 or 3, even in casual games. Now, I will grant you it being a 4/4 flying critter and an artifact makes it fairly easy to kill, but why in the hell would you put it in a deck that has no way for you to protect it? You say, "Naturalize! Wrath! Counterspell!" Well, why wouldn't I be running the same answer suite? I'll counter your wraths. I'll run recursion so I can just bring the thing back or, hell, just run a few tutors to find duplicate copies. The point is, the thing can shut out a game against a host of decks that can't deal with it. And those decks that can deal with it, if you build your deck right, it can either just keep recurring or just help buy you time to set up for your win condition. Besides, even by itself it's still a 4/4 beatstick. The fact is, this thing has shown up in and helped dominate a number tourneys.

put out plat angel, 2 whispersilk cloaks, and leonin abunas. equip the 2 whispersilks to the creatures and u got urself an unlosable match. plat angel can attack and is unblockable, cant be the target of spells and abilities so it cant be burned or destroyed, and with leonin abunas, whispersilk cant be the target of spell or abilities ur opponent controls...one of the funnest combos to play

It works great as long as you have a couple steel shaper apprentices and the shield of kaldra in your deck. As long as you have that , you can just get plenty of creatures out , then wipe out your opponent. Great card!

Frick happens to be one of my favorite words, and this in one of my favorite cards. I play this in type 1 with Diplomatic Immunity. This card is utterly vulnerable to Damnation and Wrath of God even with the Diplomatic Immunity on it. Along with Final Fortune, this combo's only purpose is to buy more time until I can get some pacts and a scepter. Damnation and Wrath of God are easily stopped with Pact of Negation.

I'm not saying this is good in every deck, because it isn't. It, like the sweeping majority of cards, is theme-dependent. If you're running an artifact deck, then I suggest: Mycosynth Golem (casting cost of nothing), Darksteel Forge (Indestructible), and Diplomatic Immunity(cannot be the target of spells/abilities). 5 stars for it's potential in the right situation. Even if you run it with a different deck, you're still buying yourself some time, and that's often all you need.

This + Darksteel Forge + Whispersilk Cloak and you have to win. It will be unblockable, have flying, have indestructible, and you cant lose. no doubt that this is the greatest card in the game. So what about it's cost, play it later on in the game.

This card is really good. I have seen a match played with this card... it went on FOREVER! This card can be used in a number of different decks, suicide, flying, just plain artifact, powering up, or really anything else. This card brings an interesting twist to the game. But is does have weaknesses, which I will say now: Lowering one it's stats to below 0, destroy artifact card (common in red or white decks), or just over powering it with a flying monster (or Arashi sky asunder).

I am more and more disappointed with the Mirrodin deck.. pretty much every time i see a Mirrodin card. These cards are far too powerful for me to take seriously in casual play. Platinum angel along with an enchanment saying that it can't be the target of any spells.

Yes it is a great card No doubts about it. It with an equiped wispersilk cloak is just frekin good. Or it and i can't remeber witch card it is but its an artifact that makes all the artifacts you control indestrucable. Oh and one more thing for the idiot that thinks this card is nothin a terror can't handle. Read terror Its says quite clearly non-black non-artifact creature.

I was told about this card awhile ago, and thought someone was pulling my leg but this card does exactly what it says it will. This is the perfect card to stall the game for turn after turn after your opponent tries to figure out how to deal with it in a timely fashion. After then hopefully you can just roll over whatever they have because you haven't lost at all. Ohh, want to make your opponent really mad, play four of em.

This is a great card all on it's own! Add Shield of Kaldra and Lightning Greaves. This way not only is it indestructable (Shield of Kaldra) but it can't be the target of spells or abilaties (Lightning Greaves). Then sit back and watch your friends/opponants cry like little babies. Bwahahahahaha!

7 colorless mana is really cheap to make a 4/4 creature that makes it so your opponents cannot win, and you cannot lose. That can easily be achieved by means of Mycosynth Golem, or Cloudposts, reanimation, or even by hardcast. It's 4/4 body makes it durable for Mirrodin and you can use it as a quick beat to your opponents head. The only real enemy this card has is a Dark Banishing, Shatter, Disenchant, or any point removal spell that can lethally damage it, or blow it to bits.

I love watching my opponents stare at my platinum angel and suffer because they know unlees they have a naturalize or some kind of card that kills artifacts they are SCREWED!

Platinum Angel + shroud does not = win. Part of what makes this game great is the fact that there is no completely failsafe way to win. No matter what combo or strategy you use, there is always an answer to it.

-- You know who
Yes, the card is awesome, but... No, Platinum Angel + shroud doesn't = win. How are people still not getting this? All shroud does is keep the creature from being targeted. Any spell that isn't targeted will destroy a creature, even if it has shroud. This list of spells includes Damnation, Wrath of God, Whirlwind, Starstorm, Day of Judgement, Hurricane, Rout, Hour of Reckoning, and dozens of others. Before you go posting false info, take the time to read what other people have posted. You might learn something.

Here's a combo: Elvish Piper (in play), Platinum Angel (anywhere but graveyard), Summoner's Pact (in your hand). Can protect you from losing from ANYTHING, at INSTANT SPEED and for only 1 green mana total. Sure, you need to pay up during your next upkeep but that's pretty negligible.

Agreed, darksteel forge is not enough to make her invincible, but saying "all you have to play is........" is not a good statement to make. Reality acid or lingering death are nice, but so are counterspell and ghostway. Darksteel forge and a diplomatic immunity will make things much more difficult however.......

Urza lands, it becomes that evil, evil turn 3 play. Cloudpost, turn 4. Your opponent will cry when he sees this come out while he's still laying down goblins. Nice in a Tooth and Nail with Mycosynth Lattice and Cloudposts. Turn 3, lay down the Lattice. Turn 4, TnN the Angel and pretty much whatever, and laugh in your opponent's face, and you still have enough mana to lay down a Hurkyl's Recall, assuming you have 4 Cloudposts/Vesuvas on the board.

also, wrath of god doesn't even target it, so diplomatic immunity isn't great. control decks can delay the game for a while, though...long enough to perhaps suspend w/ jhoira, then when it resolves you'll have plenty of mana open to back it up (rewind rewind!).

i don't even think you can use these in tournaments anymore. anyway, 7 colorless mana, not bad, especially if you stack it in a deck with Urza's Power plant, mine, and tower. I won a game yesterday that I won in three turns with this. Then if they have no bury creatures, or destroys game over. If they do then just add a couple of those enchant creatures that says, this creature cant be the target of any spells OR abilities. game over, this card is awesome! (One of my decks is stacked around that with a few Dawn Elementals and Pariahs) Although if you do not have the cool mana cards such as the ones i mentioned above, this card could possibly take a while to acquire. =)

Wow, if i realized i could say *&$! on here, my reviews would have been much saltier from the beginning... But yeah, this card is pretty shweet, and I would argue that preventing winning of the game doesn't necessarily reference that this is some kind of meta-creature that actually knows it's in a game of Magic... Think of it as an extension of the 'protection from' rules and apply it to any means of winning the game instead of just from targeting by colors or whatever... Platinum Angel rules.

Platinum Angel is my all time favourite card in Magic: The Gathering. Not just because the rule is so immense in its power, but also because of the epicness of the creature itself. "In its heart lies the secret of immortality" really has to be one of the greatest flavour texts ever written. Also the card is extremely versatile and can serve several different purposes. You can use cards to draw your entire library to your hand and yet remain in the game. In combination with Platinum Angel and Vigor you have almost immortal Platinum Angel. With Timber Protector and Mirror Entity or Timber Protector and Rod of Velis-Vel or Shield of Velis-Vel you have an indestructable Platinum Angel. 7 mana cost is easy to get with green mana core. Mana elves, for an example Harbringers, and Fertile Lands or akin can be used fairly easy to gather immense amounts of mana fast. Because of the rule of the Platinum Angel it will more than likely be the top target in your opponent's priority list. Thus Platinum Angel will draw heat. In a milling deck or control deck this quality of Platinum Angel can be a precious thing to buy you an extra turn or two, especially if your strategy involves around locking the game with something like Rule of Law.

This card is interesting indeed. It can be devastating, and yet it can cause arrogance and overconfidence. It is almost unbelievably powerful with something such as overlapping privileged positions. However, people think they're invincible even though they have less than 0 life left. If the angel is killed when you have below 0 life, or when you would otherwise lose, the game is over. I enjoy killing my opponent's angel right when he thinks he's safe, and suddenly he can lose the game again, Wrath of God is especially effective. Overall, a great card, but it is a person's worst mistake to depend solely upon its effects.

This card is good, but way to risky to play unless your sure you can pull it off. The only way I can keep this in is if I have 10 lands. Enough to play the angel, and then put a shielding plax on her on the same turn. Only way for me to keep her. Otherwise she get's mortified before I can do anything.

buy solis This card is as good as me and i am good but u need a god way to protect it or it will be distroyed. A good way to protect it is to use a enchant creature or replicate it with djinn illuminatus so then u will have as many as you can pay for. then i would power it up with moer enchantments.

Platinum Angel + Soul Foundry = instant win. being able to concentrate on attack rather then defense is a plus, but gotta look out for naturalize, shatter, and others of the like. I have two, both in play. One of my favorite cards.

This is vary interesting card, this is the first time I have seen card that has a direct effect on the game. Some people think this card should be band, I don't think it should. It is only a 4/4 Artifact Creature I think its vary easy to get rid of Artifacts. The only way you can have problems with this card is if the controller were to attach lightning Greaves or something similar. The only card that should be band is Mindslaver.

This card gets WAAAYYYY to much credit. First off, as soon as you play it, you will be the target of every spell that your opponent(s) control. Also everyone will hate because it's so CHEAP. I have seen this used with Darksteel Forge it's the absolute cheapest combo in the game, Especially since Darksteel is an artifact so it can't be destroyed this card should be banned.

I've never seen anyone play with this card. This would be playable if it cost 6 mana, or had shroud, or protection from red, black, or white. But cmon, 7 mana for a 4/4 card type that is the EASIEST IN THE GAME TO DESTROY / EXILE (artifact AND creature). If it were a non-artifact it would be better, because then only creature kill could effect it, not artifact kill. This might be an alright casual card but it is not playable in competitive scenarios.

Visara the Dreadful costs 6 to play and Platinum Angel costs 7. And also Visara would just own it by destroying it. So this creature and its effect are definetly not undefeatable.

I am amused at people who think that putting diplomatic immunity, whispersilk cloak, or something similar makes their Platinum Angel untouchable. These only protect it from being targeted. Trropical storm, plague wind, or anything else that doesn't specifically target it will still get rid of it with no problem, so you might want to put some more thought into your "unbeatable" combo.

Sure, at first glance this card looks like a 5-starrer...But a couple things bring it back down to 3-4 stars...Frist of all the mana cost is TERRIBLE. 7 mana?! First of all, by the time you get this out I don't know how much good it'll do you, in a lot of tournaments you will have lost or won by Turn 7, and even if you speed ip ut a little...well...it's still just a 4/4 Artifact w/ flying. If you don't cast it on turn 4 or something with a whole bunch of speed boosts, it will get COUNTERED, think about it: it's turn 7...counter decks are common, really common, and on turn 7 most blue mages' hands will be filled up with couterspells. In the unlikely (but I guess preferable) situation that you're NOT playing against something that counters everything you throw at him (especially on turn 7), there is a lot of removal for this thing. First of all, it's an artifact...artifacts are incredibly easy to kill: Ingot Chewer, Molder and Naturalize off the top of my head, there are probably 50 more common artifact killers. It's a creature, which doesn't help. You can Wrath of God it, shock it twice, Jaya it, Incinerate then Shock, Kamahl, Pit Fighter, the list goes on...and on...and on...and on...

A bomb in drafting and sealed, this will have a hard time seeing tournament play. As soon as it hits the field, it becomes a magnet for every removal spell. Couple that with a high manacost, and you have yourself an unplayable card in high levels of play. I would recommend this for the casual players, not tournament-bound people.

hey people...read the text...it says "YOU CANT LOSE AND OPPONENT CANT WIN" that doesnt mean you will automatically win. plus, time spiral came out with the sorcery version of this...its the same thing, but better......and cheaper. the angel can still be destroyed...or counterspelled ("Counterspell" now thats an awsome card)

In serious type 1 play, Plat is decent. Any good deck can handle her.

I made it a 3star. Because i have a black deck and i have plenty of kill non black creature cards, so i can controll when it comes out of play. Also i am sure my creatures can out last the owner of this cards deck while i build up my army. Also i have enougf leach cards to keep this player at 1 hp and my hp past 20. Its ok but i would rather have another player then me play it

Its worth more than the cost to bring out. But its a bit too costly to buy and or find in booster packs. Even to buy from trollandtoad.com.

im sorry.. but im a hater. A card that effects the actualy "game" which totally defies the use of imagination as if these monsters would know its a game. Thats hard to explain.. but anyway. Cheap as all hell this one is.. yea u can kill it with certain cards.. but while u are trying to dig those up you are getting hit for FOUR damage each turn and CANT win the game. cheap, worse than terror

Platinum Angel (a symbol of Wizards of the Coast's degradation and need to please the masses of ignorant, strategy-less, piggybanks) This card is neither fun, nor cool. Whatever happened to the days when artifacts sucked combos required over four spells and Magic cards didn't look like yu-gi-oh cards. I'm proud to say that the only time I ever encountered a Platinum Angel in a tournament, the angel wasn't even out a whole turn when I killed it with a Goblin Striker and a Fists of the Anvil.

This card is a really bad card because of what it does. I don't like it because it says
