Some addition planar monsters in Volo's Guide To Monsters

A few Planescape/planar monsters are in the new Volo 5th edition book, including Bodaks, Cranium rats, Devourer, Babau demon, Maw demon, Barghest, Tanarukk, Vargouille, Yeth Hound, Shoosuva (some kind of demonic Hyena), Ki-rin, Draegloth (more of a FR monster, though),and Aasimar as a PC race (with new options) Unfortunately, they have pulled another Tiefling on us by tieing Aasimar origins to one plane, Mount Celestia, whose primary inhabitants seem to be the now all-Lawful Angels - no mention of Archons (Boo!). When I saw Angels were all Lawful Good in the original 5e MM, I thought to myself "Bet they're planning to use them as natives of Mount Celestia and ditch the Archons." Guess my hunch was correct...
