Sunweb

A nice, quick wall that deals well with big stuff. It's main downfall is that it cannot block power 2 or less creatures. But in the right casual deck, it can be worked out...add in a couple pumpers, and you can pump your opponent's creatures to bring them into blockable range. Of course, as a defender (the new term for wall), it can't do anything offensively, unless you have Rolling Stones, so you may want to add that into your casual deck too. In limited, a decent add to limited decks playing white.

Constructed - 1.5
Casual - 3.5
Limited - 3

Sunweb

There are very few walls (or Defenders now, I suppose) that I like, and Sunweb isn't one of them.  Yes, it is kinda neat that you can make a large creature for not a lot of mana, but when it doesn't do anything to win you the game directly, I'm not sure its worth playing.  See good walls / defenders such as Wall of Blossoms, Wall of Roots, and Vine Trellis for good examples of quality walls / defenders.  Sunweb also comes equipped with a drawback that I'm not sure is necessary, but not being able to block creatures with 2 power or less can hurt, especially with the horde of weenie decks roaming around right now.
