I see this card as a kind of conceptual companion to Mentor of the Meek, from the first Innistrad block. They trigger on many of the same creatures, and add a card-drawing dimension to white that it often lacks. The Bishop is rather slower, of course, but it's still worth considering as it has two tribes that are often relevant in casual play; while Shadows over Innistrad does not have quite as strong a tribal component as its prequel, the Spirit tribal elements from back then continue to make an impact in casual settings, and both they and Clerics have a lot of relevant members that cost three or less. The fact that Edgewalker plus Bygone Bishop makes your creatures not only draw cards but cost zero intrigues me greatly!
