Crossbow Infantry can't take care of that 1/1 Wizard who counters all your spells, or sink the last javelin into you opponent with 1 life.

This guy is an awesome way to take care of problems with 1 toughness, that leaves you with a standard 1/1 Soldier when it's done.

Crossbow Infantry is not better. Crossbow infantry does not come out first turn and cannot kill the plethora of one-drop utility creatures that don't attack (birds, elves, hierarch, etc etc), thereby ruining their early game strategy.

It's a shame these Javelineers never got decent artwork. Who taught Corky here how to throw a spear? Seriously, what's up with that pose?

I also play this in my exile deck with cards similar to Nouth's. Also, playing proliferate with such old cards makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

They're well trained in destroying Birds of Paradise.

A mono-white must have against most of the tribal deck (goblins, elves, ...).

He :
* is T1
* kill any */1 creature (unlike all other white blast who cares only of attacker/blocker)
* block and kill a */2 creature (Tap it after blocker declaration).
* is a soldier, a quite common tribe.

He deserves at least 4 for a white guy.

I play 4 of it in my exile deck. he's fast, slow down my ennemy and i can refuel it with the many leave/enter battlefield spells like momentary blink, stonecloaker, riftwing cloudskate, Galepowder Mage, Flickerwisp

Saved my butt against some annoying 1/1s

Move over Mogg Fantastic, and make room for some classic old-school 1-shot damage, white weenie style.

You can shoot only 1 time. sad
