Seriously, why is white's the only one to not add a keyword? I get that Angel tokens in this set are all Serra Angels, but the equipment still should have provided flying or vigilance to the equipped creature. I guess 5WW for a 6/5 Angel with vigilance and flying is somewhat on par for an uncommon geared towards limited. I mean, the Dwarf one only gives you a 5/1 with trample for 4R, which is pretty bad, imho.
I disagree with this card evaluation. The white one is pretty strong - the "creature mode" is late game only, but a very powerful creature. And the equipment mode is a real bonus; +2/+1 is STRONG with flyers, tramplers and lifelinkers.
The blue and black ones are great, but the white one is third in my opinion. +1/+2 and reach is not nearly as great of a bonus, making the green "equipment only" mode pretty weak in my book. And you guys are overrating a 2/3 reach for 2G. The red one seems worst as a creature but good as an equipment.
edit: I think my standings are the as a creature, the white one is about middle of the pack, as an equipment it is near the top of the pack (probably second to red). The blue one is great as a creature but probably the worst as an equipment. The red, white, and black equipments turn any creature into a legit threat (though the black one is very expensive to do so). The blue one doesn't do much of anything unless it is equipping something that is already sizeable and threatening.
