Sentinel of the Eternal Watch
This is one of the strongest defensive creatures at this cost I've seen recently. A 4/6 that can block for ever is hard enough for some decks to deal with. Being unable to attack with their strongest creature each turn is something many decks will never be able to overcome. You have to go around her with swarms or over the top with flying creatures, and many decks will have to warp their strategy in the process. For constructed, not all decks want a purely defensive creature for six mana, but any that do will be hard pressed to find a better option than this card.

EDH/Commander: 4/5

Today's card of the day is Sentinel of the Eternal Watch which is a six mana White 4/6 with Vigilance and it taps opposing creatures. The effect at the beginning of their combat is very strong with preventing attacks and opening up avenues for your own attack which works well on a 4/6 with Vigilance.  The six mana cost puts this more into the realms of control, Multiplayer, or Commander and not the typical soldier build. 

It is unlikely to see much play in one on one as other options exist at lower mana costs, but with multiple opponents this becomes noticeably more efficient. 
In Limited this is an easy splashed large creature with strong effects that can be a serious threat in the later stages of a game. A solid first pick in Booster that doesn't lock the color too heavily and well worth playing in Sealed unless the mana curve on primary colors skews too high. 
Constructed: 3.5
Casual: 3.5
Limited: 4.5
Multiplayer: 4.0
