Default Landraider deepstriking and descent of angels

In the new BA 'dex it says that assault squads can re-roll reserve rolls when coming from reserves, does this apply when they deepstrike via a land raider variant?

If it doesn't say that there are any exceptions, assume that it means ALL reserve rolls. If deepstriking via a land raider is not a reserve roll, then no. Make sense? :P

up until you said not and no made sense... Perhaps it's the work day getting to me! I suppose this is the difference between rules as written and rules as intended.

I just cracked open my BA 'dex and looked at the descent of angels rule, it doesn't say that it requires jump packs for this rule, but the fluff written above it implies it.
My intent is putting an assault squad without jump packs in a land raider, and relying on the re- roll and d6" scatter to get my land raider when and where I want it. This post was to determine if that would be legal, simple yes or no

No.

GW FAQ:
"Q: If a unit with Descent of Angels rule Deep Strikes via
a transport, teleport or means other than by jump
pack, can the Descent of Angels rule still be used?
A: No."
