It's not only the Eternal Witness effect on a five-power creature, it's two Eternal Witness effects on a five-power creature. This cost is getting a little crowded with candidates in casual play, but there are few that offer this sort of advantage. And the designers may have closed the chance of recurring it from the graveyard, but they left the classic Crystal Shard combo open - get started on those decks, people!

Today's card of the day is Greenwarden of Murasa which is a six mana Green 5/4 that returns a card from graveyard to your hand when it enters play and when it dies if you exile it.  While this lacks Trample or other combat effects the card advantage both mitigates that and can support itself with an aura or combat trick.  The mana cost is reasonable if it is considered a three for one and it should be fairly popular in builds that either can accelerate into it or decks in slower formats like Commander.
In Limited this is a large creature that adds card advantage making it a very strong first pick in Booster.  In Sealed the rest of the Green pool does matter as the double Green prevents it from simply being splashed. 
Unnatural Aggression is fantastic with this and other options open up depending on the color choices of the deck.

Got milled out for that land you wanted? Best Creature fall prey to a boardwipe? Need one more pump to win the game?
Play this if you're running green. It's one of those Thrag-esque creatures that nets you advantage during entrance and exit. Being that it's target card, it can be anything. Big points for this. Oh, and it's a on a hefty 5/4 body. No auto-death to lightning bolt here folks. If it weren't in an eldrazi-centered set, hell, it is, and it's easily 1st or 2nd in the set. They're 7 bucks right now, so snatch 'em up before it shows up on GP lists, 'cause this is gonna be one of those cards that's gonna rocket to the top.
