@DJFalcon: Read the flavor text. Not all moats are filled with water. Thistles stop merfolk, lack of water stops boats, and things best left unseen stop leviathans.

WOW! Has anyone seen how much it costs to get your hands on one of these?? Check it out for real if you don't already know. Obviously it's a great card, and it was never reprinted, so taking those factors it's understandable, I guess!

Cool, cool, cool. Awesome flavor, awesome ability, awesome art. The flavor text is okay. Used in the famous deck called "The Deck." I like this card.

got into an argument with a friend the other day about whether moat will prevent his creatures with 'protection from white' from attacking...

this card went from 100 dollars to 250 dollars in about one year. crazy

Card of the Day, December 20th, 2012
I think the real reason here as to why this is so expensive is because it only saw print in Legends, which had somewhat of a limited print run. That and a lot of people want it, because it can be a one-card lock for your opponents if they don't have fliers.
In any case, it's coming to MTGO Cube Draft soon, with new art. Said art does not have the drawbridge down, and makes a lot more sense flavorwise.
"Crap they have a moat! Now how will we get to them?!"
"Dude, the drawbridge is down, let's just go across it."

you would be NEARLY correct, the exception is a vampire deck, which is loaded with flyers, and of course vampire nocturnus.

-Decide to sideboard this.
-Look up price.
-Sideboard Magus of the Moat instead.

I want to run it with Leyline of Sanctity. I'm wondering if that makes me evil...

Protection only protects them from getting targeted or receiving any damage. just as creatures with protection from white are destroyed by Wrath of God, they are also affected by Moat.

This card is an ultimate response to about any aggro deck (except for Fearie aggro-control maybe).
Teferi's Moat is a decent remake of that card and most notably does not prevent you from attacking.
