Not really, no. This doesn't technically "prevent" the damage like Absorb does. If, for example, your creature was hit with Banefire (with an X of 5 or more), Lashknife Barrier will still reduce the total damage by 1, regardless of the fact that the damage can't be prevented.

It's like the difference between shuffling cards and putting cards in a random order. The action is the same, but the former is called "shuffling" so it gets special rules interactions.

Kind of goofy. Its like the half of Honor of the Pure that I didn't need, but I get a cantrip.

Has good synergy with Flickerwisp: protect the creature with a toughness of 1 (well, next turn) and draw an additional card (at the end of this turn).

+ Creature en-Kor = Profit

It's a combo piece for all the cards that repeatedly deal one damage to all creatures. Like last laugh, or pestilence. All in all I like it. It's a cantrip, so that's always neat. And it's ability is somewhat unique, and it can be used for specific powerful combos, or just randomly slapped into casual decks.

A pretty decent card, due to the cantrip.

I'm not sure about the absorb-thing... it doesn't exactly say "prevent 1 of that damage".

My opponet carfully schemes a plot to kill of my creatures... and them he goes: DOH! He now needs to do one extra damage to each of my creatures he wanted to murder in order for his little plan to work. I go: nah nah nah nah nah nah.

I run four of these in my Enchantment/Pegasus deck.
