Riptide Shapeshifter
At such a high mana cost, I can't imagine this card being viable in constructed, unless it ends up in some quirky combo deck. Still, seems you'd be able to find a less expensive way to do with this card does.
In Limited, this thing would be mostly useless unless you managed to get one or  two outrageous bombs of a unique creature type in your deck. Then, you could actually make some use of it. But in general, not worth it.
Constructed - 1.5
Limited - 1.5

An interesting creature. A 3/3 body isn't bad, and the fact that you get to go get a creature helps also. In constructed, it's a bit high of a mana cost. But in limited, all you have to say is "Legend," typically. That'll typically go get your game winner.
Constructed: 2.5
Limited: 4

     Not a bad card. I expect it to see a lot of play in Onslaught Sealed.
Think about it. If you play beasts in your deck, sac this, and get a quick
5/5 or 6/6 into play! I think it's going to be very powerful in Sealed and
will get a lot of play. In constructed, it's really not that strong because
there are better search engines.

Constructed: 1.75/5
Limited: 4/5
