Great in weenie white - gives it the oomph to beat sligh and some other burn decks.  A great common.

In limited, lots of creatures get played, so you might as well gain a lot of life from them

Constructed: 4
Limited: 4
Current Price:
$0.95

Seems like a fun addition to a White Weenie deck. At first glance, 1 life doesn't seem like a lot, but since you can play it turn 1, this can really add up in an annoying way. Get a couple on the board, and it'll really annoy your opponent, in a Well-wisher kinda way. For your opponent, it's also like Wellwisher in that they want to kill the sucker, but hate to have to use a burn spell on the puny runt, yet at the same time, they will just to get rid of the headache.

Especially useful in constructed as it fits in well with themes. Also a nice addition in the limited environment which is usually creature-based.

Constructed - 4
Limited - 4

One of my favorite creatures. A quick first turn play, you get power and toughness each equal to the casting cost. Then, throw in the fact that you get one life for each other creature that comes into play, and you get a great creature that will make most decks that can produce white mana the first turn. Something like this being reprinted might go a long way toward white becoming a good color again.
 
In limited, it's just as good, if not better, with the number of creatures that are played.
 
Constructed: 4.25
Limited: 4.5

Soul Warden

White Weenie with stall.  I think this card kicks not
only in limited but constructed. P/T equal to cc. and a
nifty ability.

Contructed:3.5
Limited:4.75

Soul Warden - As one drops go she is pretty darn good. Not enough of a threat to draw early removal the small life gains turn after turn can really add up, especially in creature heavy formats. Not as good as a Mother of Runes, still one of White's most solid 1 drops.

Constructed - WW needs good 1 drops but there are already some good ones out there like the Mother or the Lions. This card probably takes 3rd place and can be nice in a lot of matchups - 3.50

Limited - She really shines in limited where quick drops aren't as common and there are a lot of creatures - 4.25

PEZ (Peasant) - One of the best 1 drops and an almost automatic addition to White Weenie builds - 4.80
