This is a typically-green take on card drawing that we have seen in general form a number of times, and it stands out from many recent card drawing effects (in any color) by going further into your deck and skipping at least one step by putting creatures directly into play. That has to count as at least another plus two or three to the card advantage count, and possibly more when you look at the sort of creatures that cost three or less - Eternal Witness is still in all the best formats!

The number four card of the year is Collected Company which is a four mana Green instant which can be a huge boon for a lower casting cost aggressive Green build.  Two extra creatures, including options like Deathmist Raptor, can turn around most major attacks from an opponent. 

It can also accelerate out tribal creatures or other swarm tactics at a very low mana cost for the card advantage, potentially reaching six mana of creatures for only four and with some choice in what gets played.  In the right deck this is an excellent card accelerator for a color without many similar options and one that belongs in many decks.
In a Limited format the increased average mana curve for creatures weakens it somewhat, but designing around it can be worthwhile with another color in the mix.  A solid first pick in Booster if supported and a strong splash in Sealed if Green can add a few other cards of value.

Collected Company
It's neat for standard, but then lots of stuff that was neat for standard didn't translate well to other formats.It still has its uses, but I wasn't overly wowed by this, considering how luck-based it really is. 
Constructed: 3
Casual: 3.5
Limited: 3.5
Multiplayer: 2.5
EDH: 2
