Remember all the fun we had with Scapegoat, once upon a time, with things like Thousand Eye Restrict Morph/Control.  Scapegoat is a very interesting card, something you might see a veteran use, and something a first time player may.  It's very useful in a pinch, just ask Joey Wheeler.
 
Scapegoat was always better as a combo card than as simply a let's stop four attack card, but on its own, it still isn't all that bad.  It's one of those cards that is incredibly simple, but does a lot, and has several different thoughts and abilities about.  No one could really fault you for playing it, or not playing it.
 
Part of me thinks the only reason Scapegoat stays Limited is because more than one would be annoying as hell, remember when you could use three?  Sadly, I don't really have an argument to or not to play Scapegoat.  It's a neat card to keep in the Side-Deck though.
 
Ratings:
 
Scapegoat gets a 3/5 all around in both Formats for reasons listed above.
 
Art:  3/5
 
Side-Deck:  4/5

Scapegoat? …
 
Uhm, ok. Freeza likes Scapegoat.
Not only is it a monster in spell form … it’s FOUR monsters in spell form. U can’t use them for a tribute summon … but since we were lucky enough to have this card introduced before all the crazy fancy tech stuff people do today, that’s about the ONLY limitation on what u can do with these powerless little goats. Oh, also u can’t do any other kind of summoning on the turn u activate this card. But since this is a quick-play spell, that is of little consequence, cuz u can just do it at the end of ur opponent’s turn and be free your turn act as u see fit. Synchro summon, tribute for some type of burn endeavor, switch into ATK mode and Creature Swap (remember that beauty?), or just keep then up as a wall to guard your lifepoints. Scapegoat still has and always had so many uses. And going back to the loveliness of its quick-playability, it’s also perfect Heavy Storm or MST bait.
 
Scapegoat is one of those underappreciated gems that people keep forgetting to play.
