    Well people have Ben asking for 5 color angels all because of Maelstrom Archangel (which is a freebie spell with this any tribal you want legend)

    It would reduce the cmc of several angels immensly

    Like, for example, Atraxa who is also free.

    Quote from Werewolf_Rawr »
    I’m not a fan of the flavor here. The cards are cool on their own and the synergy in abilities is cool but WHY would this partnership ever materialize?

    I think it's pretty brilliant. Another commenter said this, but mechanically they tell a cool story. A redeemer of lost souls protagonist, and a bloodthirsty demon antihero. Their goals ultimately align a lot since a demon is benefitted by reaping corrupted souls who would otherwise be competition, and the angel brings them back to light so they'd have some sort of alliance of convenience. But the angel keeps redeemed souls on her side of the board since she doesn't trust the demon not to reap them as well. It's really cute, and to make it extra spicy they threw in that the two are lovers. So maybe the demon is reaping those souls specifically to win her. Not because he's redeemed but because of some sort of lustful passion. And simultaneoudly it's an interesting selective acceptance of the wickedness on Regna's part.

    The mechanics and flavor stored purely on cards tell a really elegant story with these two.

    Skystreamer is cute. It gives you a bargaining chip in free-for all. You get and undercosted 3/2 flier and they get 4 life in exchange for mana they weren't using.

    It's really cute.

    I absolutely love this set, but that was almost a given with a legendary creature themed set. From just a cursory glance the generals in my commander cube are gonna get shook up more than most commander products cause.

    Definite swaps:
    Karn, Silver Golem -> Traxos, Scourge of Kroog
    Kaervek the Merciless -> Garna, the Bloodflame
    Kruphix, God of Horizons -> Tatyova, Benthic Druid
    Linvala, the Preserver -> Evra, Halcyon Witness
    Sheoldred the Whispering One -> Whisper, Blood Liturgist
    Kiki Jiki, Mirror Breaker -> Valduk, Keeper of Flames

    Legends that I have no idea how I'll fit them in, but I really want to:
    Muldrotha, the Gravetide
    Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain
    Shalai, Voice of Plenty
