Casting Cost:
Type:
Sorcery

Card Text:
Return target creature card from your graveyard to the battlefield. If it's an Angel, put two +1/+1 counters on it.

Official Rulings for Defy Death

5/1/2012 : No player can cast spells or activate abilities between returning the creature card to the battlefield and checking whether it's an Angel.

5/1/2012 : If the creature is an Angel only on the battlefield (perhaps because it's a non-Angel creature card and Xenograft is on the battlefield), it will get the +1/+1 counters.

False Death? Breath of Life? 1 more mana for counters if its an angel... Not quite sure itll be relevant too often, maybe B/W Solar Flare with Elesh, Avacyn, and Grislebrand
