Planeswalkers   (Infobox · Data)

Serra the Benevolent is a white human Planeswalker, released in February 2021 along with the Kaldheim card set.

She has higher than average health and average deck limits. She is one of four Planeswalkers, as of October 2022, with the highest White mana gain, at +7. She attains this and fair gains in Blue and Green with deep minuses (-2) to Black and Red.

The focus of all of Serra's abilities is Angel creatures. She can create powerful VigilantVigilance Angel TokensToken or Angel LeadersLeader (but not both; the ability alters at level 40), buff creatures while giving them the Angel subtype, effectively turning them into angels, and Exile creatures in or going to the graveyard while summoning a Vigilant Angel for each one, effectively turning them into angels.
