Hmm.... This could be anti-Tog and anti-Wrath.  But I can see these decks jumping through their arse to keep or get this guy out of play.  Its advantage is that it costs only 1 to make the board, so you may be able to sneak him in under blue's nose. Black will probably just Smother or Edict it.

In limited, it could be used to protect a key creature later in the game. It's not poorly costed. I'd consider it for play if I were going white.

THIS is our white 1 drop for the set?!?? His ability will typically mean absolutely nothing, and so there are many mroe better cards for the slot. I'll pass.
 
In limited, however, ... erm, never mind. It's symmetrical, so it sucks.

Planar Guide has some real possibilities in decks that can be designed around him (using him for morph is just the most mundane example). It also provides a good answer to all the mass removal that decks are packing these days and that can be some good for WW.

 

Constructed A stellar pick for WW and some rogue decks as well 4.85

 

Limited Also a standout card here he can morph and stall out a game where you are behind 4.85

This guy's hard not to like, he's your average 1/1 for one and comes with a
great effect. I think he has potential in a white green deck with mana
acceleration and could be pretty nasty in the right deck. Then again with
all the removal in the environment it'll be hard to build a deck around him
but one never knows.

In limited he's pretty cool, he'll allow you to pull crazy morph tricks and
if for some reasin your opponent is playing and manages to get Phage in play
you win. = p Not like that'll ever happen but it's still funny enough to
mention.

Constructed 1.5

Limited 2.5
Scott Sager Planar Guide

He's a 1/1 for W with an added bonus of killing all tokens and creature enchantment on the board for 3w.  It should be a very useful sideboard card (if not main) for White decks as long as Roar of the Worm and Call of the Herd are in the environment.

Limited: It's a 1/1 for 1cc that might pull off a trick or two.  Nothing spectacular.

Constructed:  3

Limited:  2.5

     I think this guy is a little over-looked. I wanna make a fun deck with this guy. Maybe play alot of cool morph creatures, then use this guy to put them all face up for free. I dunno though... hes not that good realisticly.

     In limited hes pretty bad, but he does give you fog. and auto morphs for everyone. Still hes too random really. Plus white in draft isn't good let alont a 1/1 in limited since its all about the 2/2 and plus power & toughness.

Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 1.5

Astral Slide every creature! Weee!!!  He can be a fog,
or a decent "comes into play" loopy thing, I like the
picture, but I don't think he's too good.  He's a 1/1
for 1 with a neat ability, pretty damn good in
limited.

Contructed:2
Limited:3.5
