Hmm.. fun!  Just not constructed material. While it's cost isn't bad, for a similar 4 mana, you could have a 4/5 flying life-gaining Exalted Angel smacking face, ya know? That pretty much puts this into perspective, I think.

In limited, it's great! It's a 4/4 Wall that will pretty much stop your opponent dead in their tracks for a looong time, since they won't want to attack into it randomly and risk turning it into a "giant bird." So they probably won't be doing any attacking until they can play something bigger than this puppy. Or they'll have to expend some removal to deal with it. Either way, it's done it's job for only 4 mana. Nice.

Constructed: 2
Limited: 4.25

Wheeee. A flying Elder Land Wurm. Anything that makes you block to be useful is generally bad in constructed, and this is no exception.
 
In limited, though, this is actually pretty good. It stops anything in the air, and once it blocks once, it can attack. I would play it, and probably pick it about 4th-5th in draft.

Ageless Sentinels is interesting. A 4 cost 4/4 Flying Wall is okay but not really anything that would stand out but a 4/4 Flyer for 4 is really solid. No good against creature light decks but very good against any deck that wants to swing for the win. I see this as a solid pick.

Constructed - Solid overall but nothing amazing - 2.50

Limited - Very good because it is efficient and has evasion - 3.75

 A 4/4 flying wall for four mana that can attack if it ever blocks something.  Cool.
 Limited: Even cooler.

4/4 flier for four mana is good, very very good in this limited environment
in fact...  I guess that's why he's rare.  The prerequisite of him blocking
makes him not good enough  in constructed, since control decks ignore him
and exalted angel is better overall. By a lot. In OnBC he doesn't survive
his blocking attempts, the fatties are too big  ;)
constructed 2
limited 4

       In constructed theres better.
       In limited this guy stop things from swinging at you for a VERY long time. Plus a 4/4 flying wall is hard to remove immediately anyways. If your opponent does make this thing capable of swinging he etierh has something up his sleeve, is going to attempt to kill it when it blocks, or is an idiot. Good card for its cost. Not aggressive though... but really good for a control type of limited deck. Holds off until you get your  true bomb or until you can make some good break-thru happen.

Constructed: 1
Limited: 4
