This is still usable, mainly in Soldier decks. In such decks flying is hard to come by and they usually need to resort to non-soldiers to do it. Then bingo! Reach!

Longbow Archer is way better.

You're logic makes me laugh.

I could argue that chimney imp is better than Baneslayer and here's why:

Armadillo Cloak
Sword of Vengeance
Diplomatic Immunity

@mrredhatter's point was that, in his/her opinion, card for card, longbow Archeris better.

Musketeer? He's practically holding a small cannon in his hand.

A planeswalker goes to visit the Alaborn, "Oh wow! Guns!"

The same planeswalker visits America, "'Merica! *** Yeah!!!"

'' Longbow Archer is way better. ''

Not exactly, here's why.

In my deck, I use Ballyrush Banneret , Daru Warchief and Field Marshal.

With the 1 less colorless to play, this card becomes a 1 drop. I can't lower Longbow Archer's cost to 1.

Longbow Archer has First Strike, so what, I got Field Marshal giving all my other soldiers First Strike.

Longbow Archer is a 2/2. Alaborn Musketeer is a 2/1. Who cares since I got Coat of Arms and a lot of +1/+2 +1/+1?

Is this the ONLY Magic card with a gun? (besides that Unhinged card)
