Vigilance is a keyword ability on creatures that allows the creature to attack without tapping. It exists primarily on white cards. This ability has existed in the game since Alpha, where it was not keyworded but instead had the rules text of the ability written out. Vigilance was introduced as a keyword in Champions of Kamigawa, and was retroactively changed, via Oracle, on all cards that had "Attacking doesn't cause this creature to tap." such as Serra Angel. The Vigilance keyword, lifelink, and the fear keyword are the only keywords with a card of the exact name. Flying comes close, with the card called Flight.
The latest reminder text for Vigilance reads "Attacking doesn't cause this creature to tap."
