My all time favorite 1-srop

this is clearly powercreep; and yet, would anyone actually play this if it were 1G? perhaps a happy medium would have been a 1/2 with reach alone.

I wonder what's wrong with me that I defend the idea that Baneslayer Angel is not overpowered and yet I find this card almost there... Don't get me wrong, it's not "broken" or something like that, but it is disturbingly powerful for a one drop common. Sure, there's all sorts of ways around it (as there is with any card--first strike is it's downfall), it just feels like it ought to be eith one mana more or one less power and toughness. But that's alright. It is a very powerful card, and as someone who plays a lot of flying definitely something to watch out for.

I'm in love.

There are so many beautifully balanced cards in this set. This is just another example.

People who cry powercreep don't understand that similar cards in earlier sets were UNDERPOWERED.

1/2 with reach for 1 is common is absurd.
4/2 with reach for 1 is obscene and a prime exhibit in the case of "Powercreep vs. Leveling the playing field."

Kinda forgot about this guy. Green decks should sideboard him in against Delver decks.

Strictly better than Norwood Ranger

I'm gonna hold back on marking this card. The power creep on green archers has been ridiculous the last few years. A 1/2 reach for one green would have seen daylight. This is a bit much and I hope some young developer doesn't try to top this ever.

I would say I hate this card for how stupidly powerful it is as a common, but then again, it kills vampire nighthawk
