That's because Captain plays a Border Guard from the Supply, so that Border Guard is not yours, so does not benefit from Lantern's wording "Your Border Guards reveal 3 cards and discard 2." (my emphasis)

It's not a very intuitive interaction, because most people internalize Lantern as being applicable when they play a Border Guard. It's mostly the same, but in rare cases (Captain, Necromancer, Band of Misfit, Overlord) it's not.
