This card seems like it will have a few uses. It's not likely to be super strong in standard play, but it is very likely to be usable in older formats. Also, casual players should be really big on this card. It gives you a lot of options to get many crazy things into play.

Constructed: 3
Casual: 4
Limited: 2

Arcum Daggson

This is basically a combo card. This guy, Ornithopter, and any huge noncreature artifact you want to cheat into play. But most huge artifacts worth cheating into play are creatures, so Daggson has trouble finding his combo. On the other hand, since most noncreature artifacts that see play are typically Signets or cheap Equipment, this makes a decent way for monoblue to deal with artifact creaatures. Now how many of those are there to worry about in Standard or block? Not enough.

Constructed- 2
Casual- 4
Limited- 1

Arcum Dagsson

Well this guy is certainly intriguing. A 2/2 for 4 is not a very good deal, but this ability is quite impressive. It won't make a very big impact on standard right now, but I bet this guy will be popping up in some combo decks after Time Spiral comes out. How does this sound? Turn 2 artifact creature, turn four Arcum, turn 5 broken artifact combo death. Furthermore, this ability may just be what affinity needs to make a comeback in Extended.
If this guy is interesting in Constructed, he is amazing in casual. Casual always loves tutoring abilities, and it REALLY loves tutoring into play. Sacrifice a mana myr for a myr incubator, etc.
This is bad in limited. I don't think there are any artifact creatures in limited that you want to give up if you drafted them.

Constructed- 2/5
Casual- 5/5
Limited 1.5/5
