Good example of what a WhiteBlackRed humanoid creature can look like (sort of fanatical like something out of Warhammer 40k -John Blanche's colour art being a fine example)

White - idealism
Red - passion (combines with white to create righteous zeal ie Boros)
Black - egoism (combines with white to get fascism ie Orzhov, and red to get destructive violence ie Rakdos)

Regenerate for no mana cost is far from awful, and his accompanying Dega Sanctuary provides you with the life you need to keep him (and yourself) alive.

Regeneration has become stronger lately, and "free" regeneration allows you to play it together with mana-heavy mass-destroy spells! :) It's nice that you have four different options, but I don't like how one of them (1/1 creature for ~two~ mana) is something that you always never want, and how one of them (4/4 creature with first strike ~and~ regeneration) comes with anti-synergy between the abilities.. Also, I don't like how the red kicker creates a white ability: What's the purpose of working together with your enemies, the very interesting concept of this block, if you get something that you already have yourself?

The regenerate ability is awful, and a 4/4 first strike for 5 that requires three colors is mediocre at best. Probably the worst Volver.

Not worth it, volvers really need to be 2/2 befor kicking to be worth playing.

The good: I love the art, and regeneration without having to keep mana open is great.
The bad: volvers are better the bigger they are. So you can play them early on if necessary, but try to keep them as huge fatties for the late game. This dude can't be a huge fatty, so he falls a bit short in that matter.

Still: nice art. :) I had him as a 1-of in a deck about reckless assault and dega sanctuary.

the Volvers are all nice- but nowadays probably can't work well outside of Casual/Multiplayer, which probably means Commander. Currently, the cards out there for WBR Commander want something a little splashier and more powerful than this. It looks like a good Invasion Block limited card though :)

Unfortunately anti-combos with itself: First Strike makes regeneration less likely to be relevant.

Play volver cards in a Proliferate deck, for maximum confusion!
