Not bad in limited but I still prefer Serra Angel.

This card makes me praise the existence of the Baneslayer. Thanks to that unbalanced and extremely sought-after card, this card, which is perfectly acceptable and balanced, is unlooked for and therefore very cheap on the current card market. If you're making any sort of white deck nowadays, you can get four of these for under a dollar, whereas the Baneslayer is currently fifty dollars each. A good deal for those of us that refuse to use unbalanced, overblown cards.

sadly, it falls to lightning bolt, but that said, 5 for a 3/3 fs, flying vigilant creature? yes please, there is so much removal in standard with doomblade, terminate and hiddeious end, that this is not any worse for being a 3/3

and it is a fs vigilant with flying, in limited, with few fliers and even fewer first strikers, this guy is awesome

I like it.

Miniboss for my GW deck.

This is way better than Angel of Mercy. Unfortunately, in the M10 standard environment, it's a target for Lightning Bolt (on top of being a target for Doom Blade).

Combines perfectly with the new Basilisk Collar.

this chick is awesome. forget about the $50 angel unless you spent to get one (or more). Then go talk about that. This angel is awesome for her combo of abilities built in. You can use other abilities to make her ridiculously tough and in wouldn't be to hard to put it together... even a bonesplitter in your deck makes this chick pretty rough. then add some "creatures you control have trample" and it's gonna be a bloodbath! hell ya!

And check it out- magic: the baneslayer angel gathering is retarded. That is the most misfit card in the whole game if you ask me. They might as well re-release black lotus and the moxes. Then instead of the game being magic: the baneslayer angel gathering, it could be magic: the cards not everybody can have gathering.

It's so frutrating to see a cool card with great artwork released in an environment where it's immediately marginalized by more efficient and more powerful alternatives. With Voice of All and Guardian Seraph both at 2WhiteWhite, it would have been entirely reasonable to give Shepherd of the Lost a toughness of 4 or a cost of 2WhiteWhite; even then it would be dwarved by Baneslayer Angel. Instead, we're left with an over-costed, unplayable chump who isn't worth the sleeve you'd have to put him in to play him outside of Limited.

Angels are probably my favorite creature type, so I was excited when I saw the abilities and artwork, until I looked at the casting cost. Even a cc of 4 would improve it immensely.

Great flavor on this one though
