Rarity does not determine power level, power level determines rarity.

Just because an angel isn't as good as Bankslayer Angel doesn't mean its a bad card.

This card was pathetic before Baneslayer Angel was ever conceived.

@ AbyssalManZero:
Wizards has never made a 5/5 flying, first strike, lifelink, protection from Vampires and Demons that is rare for five. They have however made a 5/5 flying, first strike, lifelink, protection from DRAGONS and Demons that is MYTHIC RARE for 5.

Angel of retribution fails. Baneslayer is only overpowered because it has lifelink. But I got one from a booster so I'm not complaining.

Vengeful Archon
Deathless Angel
Serra Ascendant

Iona, Shield of Emeria
Emeria Angel
Linvala, Keeper of Silence
Battlegrace Angel
Wall of Reverence
Archon of Justice
Blazing Archon
Twilight Shepherd
Adarkar Valkyrie
Akroma, Angel of Wrath
Angel of Salvation
Just to name a few of the white fliers who are so much better then this crap.

It's a pity since the rk post artwork is awesome, as always. To think this was in the same theme deck as Ichorid...

"Come on people, We all know Baneslayer is overpowered compared to its mana cost, and even if it wasn't, it doesn't make this a bad card. It's so sad to hear all these "there is a card that is better than this, therefore this sux" comments, don't you realize you can have only 4 baneslayers in your deck (if you're rich/lucky enough), so unless you plan on having a deck of 4 baneslayers and 56 plains, that kind of comment is just not fair."

Just how many top-of-the-curve fatties do you want to run in your deck, though? You specify a type of card you want and the quantity you need of it, and then you pick from the best. You don't have room for a little of everything, so it's inevitable that there will be a comparison and the more efficient card will be chosen. This process of choosing one card over the other is precisely what determines the good from the bad; there is no higher standard of objective judgment to make the distinction between "good" and "bad".

Hey this is better than Serra Angel. For 1 more mana it gets +1/+1.

I hate the art more than anything. Looks like a tranny with huge knockers and goat legs.

... I don't get how Wizards could have made this RARE 7 for a 5/5 flying, first striker and yet, make a 5/5 flying, first strike, life link protection from Vampires and demons RARE for only 5??

How does THAT work??
