Leonin Sun Standard - We're here to PUMP...YOU UP!  Leonin Sun Standard wants to make the cut in White Weenie, but time will tell if it shall.

In limited, this thing is amazing. If you are going white, you play it. It can make all your creatures bigger, and since it's a non-tapping ability, you can pump multiple times to kill off your opponent's creatures, save your own, or finish off your opponent quickly. This thing will have a huge "kill me now or die" target on its head.

Constructed: 3
Limited: 4.75

I took one look at this, and it reminded me of a card from long ago: Gerrard's Battle Cry (from Tempest). You pay one more mana to cast it, and one less mana for each activation. In constructed, the time it will take to set this up won't be worth it.
In limited, however, costing the activation one less than its predecessor makes a huge difference in its playability. You'll catch some more problems than if Gerrard's Battle Cry was just straight reprinted, due to the large number of artifacts in this set, but it is very playable.
Constructed: 1
Limited: 4.25

I think Gerrard's battle cry didn't see enough constructed play, so they
decided to make it cheaper.  I still don't know if that makes it good enough
for weenie decks,  but it makes it even better for draft and sealed decks. 
And it's not as fragile as equipment.
constructed 2.9
limited 3.4


Leonin Sun Standard is just sick for WW. The universal pump is easily amazing and just too good. Use this card!

Constructed - Perfect for weenie - 4.85

Limited - Super good here as well - 4.85
