Lingering Souls
Lest you think that every card this week is a tournament card, that the only point of it is card advantage and time-counting attrition, I'd like to point out that the competitive world only really came around to tokens around the time of the Alara block. Before then, Twilight Drover and Doubling Season were mainstays of the fun-oriented world, and Lingering Souls does more than fit in to their existing decks: it makes new ones of its own. Orzhov Spirits has been a popular and captivating casual deck for many years, and this card's release guarantees that it will be for many more. Oh, and Lingering Souls also just happens to be amazing in just about every competitive deck from Esper Control to 4.5-color Jund.

The number two card of the year is Lingering Souls which is a three mana White sorcery that puts two 1/1 White spirit tokens with Flying into play and for a Flashback cost of one Black mana and one other mana. 
Four tokens with evasion from one card and five mana is a bargain and will be a popular addition to the Black/White token theme.
In Limited any deck running White can benefit from two Flying 1/1 creatures and it should be used in both Sealed decks and drafted relatively early in Booster.  If you can splash Black or due to the pool are playing Black/White this is an even more powerful option and one of the bigger advantages available.
Constructed: 4.0
Casual: 4.0
Limited: 4.0
Multiplayer: 4.0
