Twilight Shepherd SHM

Twilight Shepherd, an example angel from the Shadowmoor set

Angel is a creature type.


They are a popular theme in Magic, but are usually rare or hard to find. Angels are mostly white-aligned, however with the release of the Conflux expansion, Maelstrom Archangel was a five-colored Angel. It was also popular in the Shards of Alara block to see green, white, and blue Angels from the Shard of Bant. Also, in the Alara Reborn set, Filigree Angel was a white and blue artifact creature.

Arguably, the best known Angel in Magic is Akroma, Angel of Wrath. Released in the Onslaught expansion, Akroma was created by master illusionist Ixidor to fight Phage the Untouchable and the Cabal. Akroma was destroyed when she and Phage were cut down by the barbarian Kamahl. The two women then fused together to create Karona.

In an alternate Dominaria, Ixidor was more of a mad man, and created Akroma, Angel of Fury. This Akroma was red-aligned, but was considered worse than Akroma, Angel of Wrath.

There is also an angel from the Shadowmoor set, called Twilight Shepherd. Although no angels were thought to exist on Shadowmoor, this is the only angel in the set and the block.

There was also a card featured in the Duel Decks: Divine vs. Demonic compilation called Fallen Angel, which was black-aligned.
