For 1hit wonders there are Lilina and Sanaki who are barely used for similar reasons and for tanking there are much better options.
Who needs 1-hit wonders when you can tank a Hector, Ike, Titania, Nino, etc? And if you run Swordbreaker, she can even tank sword units. And her low speed is the best part, because why waste points in a stat that would be middling at best like the other Raven users?

Also, it doesn't matter how many colorless units are used. What matters is the frequency, and Bow Lyn and Bride Cordelia are pretty highly used. If you don't want to use her, or have other alternatives, that's fine. But she's not useless in any sense of the word and you should pay less attention to gamepedia tier lists.

Use a non-Raven tome on a magic user and see how much damage you take from Bow Lyn. Hint: with a Raven tome you take like 3 damage.
