@Xypherous, regarding Seraph and Eleisa
Hi, Xypherous. I'd like to preface this by saying I believe the direction you're taking Archangel's Staff and Eleisa's Miracle are phenomenal and I'm really excited.

However, I do have a few questions - one regarding Eleisa's + smite and then a few for Seraph.

Firstly, you explained that you decided to go with Revive/Heal/Clairvoyance because they fit with the theme of "heavenly intervention" on Eleisa's miracle. My question is did you at any point consider including smite on this list of spells? Smiting is something Gods do from heaven, after all.

I believe it would be good on limited sustain double CC, double GP10 junglers (such as Nautilus!<3) who have an alternative, cheaper option rather than going Shureylia's (so that the support can grab that and you can pick this up+an Aegis.)

As for the Seraph item Archangel's transforms into, how does it compare to the digivolved Manamune? Is it the defensive counterpart to what I can only hope to be an offensive twin? Are they synergistic? Is there any champion which would benefit from both of these items?

Nautilus would prefer Shurelia's for the active (he's slow as balls, in case you haven't noticed already) and the CDR, which Eleisa's notably lacks.

I agree, Frozen. 300 MS, the CDR is appealing and the health to benefit his shields, but if Eleisa granted the Aid passive to reduce my smite cooldown by 20%, I'd rush it and then create a secondary Philos for my Shurelia's if I had to pick one up for my team, because Eleisa's will inevitably remove itself from my inventory - for a huge perk. A 35 second cooldown smite opens up huge potentials for contesting buffs earlier and more frequently against your opponent and quicker counterjungling for the primary neutral creep at each camp - especially going into S3 where the jungle will become a scarier place!
