Suddenly, lion.

Before the M10 rule changes, how was this comes-into-play "drawback" ever really a drawback?

A strong flexible, NON-TARGETING card. I consider it for every mono white deck, and others besides. I love having aura shards out with this. It becomes a reusable disenchant. If the other player never targets your stuff, you can still use it to get your come into play effects working again.
This is better than the stonecloaker. It has 90% of the power for 67% of the cost. You do get more for the extra colorless mana, but since it is a responsive creature, you need to leave mana untapped, and I would rather have that extra mana to spend during my turn. If you have something like the shards or pandemonium out, you can run this more often.

It was fun drafting that set because you could try to go white/red and combo this guy with keldon marauders and get lots of extra come-into-play/leave-play abilities to trigger.

It was never meant to be a drawback, it's a perk that can backfire once in a while.
If what you need is a 2/2 creature (for any reason), but have no other creatures, you can't just cast this.

I really like the white flavor on this one. It feels like the lion rushes in (flash) to save another creature (gating/bounce)

actually useful to both save one of your creatures and/or suprise your opponent while blocking.
or you bounce itself for some cip effects...would be quite awesome as 1/1 one-drop from that point of view^^

This guy is a bomb in my lifegain deck... I play it with Soul Warden, Angel's Feather, Ajani's Pridemate, Angelic Chorus and many more fun stuff!

Sometimes I have fantasies about this card, plus Aluren and Pandemonium. It would require so much diabolical orchestration just to pull off, but man... infinite amount of damage to any target, at instant speed.

Stonecloaker seems better in my opinion, still both are very good.
