An excellent sideboard card in creature decks.  If you're running white and creatures, this card can do amazing things. Not great against decks that play heavy removal or control, hence it's place in the sideboard. But against other creature decks with no or little removal, it's game.  Blue/Green, probably the most widely played deck at the moment,  just cries if Worship hits the board, as usually cannot deal with it. 

In limited, enchantment removal is hard to come by, so Worship is a top pick. Just slap that puppy on the board and start beating on your opponent.

Constructed: 4
Limited: 4.75

Worship
 
A great card to help creature based decks out against burn. If you have a creature when you take damage, even if the creature is destroyed at the same time, you can't go below 1. If I'm playing white, and I'm playing creatures, I'll likely have one in the board.
 
It's even better in limited, as there is typically very little that can destroy it, and you always have a lot of creatures.
 
Constructed: 3.5
Limited: 4.75

Worship is one of those cards that is just amazing in the right decks. Forcing the opponent to come up with a Disenchant or remove a number of White creatures is tough. For 4 mana it is priced right as well, not too cheap but not too expensive either.

 

Constructed Many decks have taken advantage of this card as a way to stall out games and prevent an early loss. No reason for that not to continue 3.95

 

Limited Lots of creatures and little Enchantment Removal, hmmm, yeah this is an awesome pick 5.00

Worship
 
A super good/annoying card that became crazy good with the introduction of Phantoms (Phantom Centaur, Phantom Nomad, etc..) and any enchantment that boosts that creatures toughness making it all but un-killable by damage. 
 
Limited:  As long as you have a creature your opponent can't kill you.  Sounds like a first pick to me.
 
Constructed: 4
Limited: 4.5

Worship

Worship is a card that can be potentially devastating.  It can illicit two
responses - a scoop, or a Disenchant.  Of late, though, there have been a
few ways around Worship that have lessened its effectiveness in the
sideboard.

Life loss has become more prevalent in both Odyssey and Onslaught Block. 
Effective creature destruction has increased with Smother, Innocent Blood,
and Chainer's Edict looming in decks, it makes it harder to keep creatures
around for Worship.

With Disenchant and Naturalize, as well as other ways to remove
enchantments, Worship isn't a for sure game winner.  You still play it in
your sideboard, though, because it is very common that it will shut down a
creature deck.

In limited, it is very dependable.  It hits play, and can shut down an
opponents offense until they can either handle your creatures, or handle the
enchantment itself.  In limited, it's a for sure card, and more than likely,
in my opinion, a first pick if you are playing white.

Constructed - 3.0/5.0 (Diminished effectiveness doesn't make it a bad card.)
Limited - 4.5/5.0 (A good card in general.)
