Moorish Cavalry is the stronger choice.

Can you imagine what Magic would be like if every white creature with converted mana cost 5 was on par with Baneslayer Angel though?

It's a bit unfair to compare an uncommon from 1996 to a Mythic from 2010.

Does anyone else get verbotic whiplash from reading the Flavor poem? That last line is just painfully jarring somehow.

while you can summon angel who wants to summon an elephant too expensive

Brawn's better. But Brawn's green. This still sucks, though.

Not a very useful card at all, 4 for a 3/3 with trample, not very good artwork, and the flavor text isnt very good.

Personally, I don't think that it is a good idea for all the cards to be as powerful as the baneslayer, but I feel like the average common should be at least as powerful as something like Shepherd of the Lost or Sentinel Spider. I'm fine with the difference in power level between rarities, but it shouldn't be nearly as wide as it is now.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
