Actually, Doom Blade is not strictly better, if you need higher mana-cost cards for some effect or ability.

Removal: It is not quite about the removal spell as much as it is the player who has it.

Hmmm...... what did I draw this turn?
(Reiver Demon) Nope. Can't play it.
(Looks at other cards in hand: Death Denied, Infernal Contract, Doom Blade, and a Skeletal Vampire. Five mana and a couple of shades on the board)
Hmmmmm..... geez, what can I do? I'll lose 8 life if I play that card; I need more mana for these..... I guess I can afford that Doom Blade. Is there something I can kill? What does my opponent have over there? Who is that? (Picks up opponent's creature) Inner-Flame Acolyte? Ok, I'll do that. (Taps two mana, speaks to opponent) I'll Doom Blade that g... (see all)

I remember watching the Starter tape. The main instructor (played by Pat Cashman) stated this was his favourite card. Then I got 7th Ed's Dark Banishing. Same mana cost, Same effect plus regen killer, but was also an instant. These days any who started with this card should just use Doom Blade.
