Adarkar Valkyrie - Coldsnap. Rare
4WW: Snow Creature - Angel
Flying, Vigilance
T: When target creature other than Adarkar Valkyrie is put into a graveyard this turn, return that card to play under your control.
She doesn't escort the dead to the afterlife, but instead raises them to fight and die again.
4/5



The mighty valkyrie, one of the icons of the set. 6 for a 4/5 flyer + vigilance + effect aint half bad. Not to mention the effect is making casual players go wild.

However, I feel the Valkyrie fell into the wrong slice of the color pie. There aren't a lot of white cards that come to my mind that "destroy" besides the Wrath ofcourse. But then, the valkyrie can't be abused over and over again, requiring you to splash another color. Not to mention, you'd have to kill creatures the hard way (through combat). Still a fun card for limited as well.

The Duck's Rating: 3/5

I want a red/white direct damage deck! Now!

Joking.

This card is highly useful. Plonk it into a red/white Crowd control deck and you're set. Not to mention you can have multiple copies to bring each other back if they die. ^_^

3/5.

I can't think of a way to abuse it for tournament play but in casual this would be REALLY fun. 3/5
