I think this is a perfect Exalted card.
It's a one drop, starting the pain early.
Then, once it no longer makes an impact, it defends like a champ while your sole attacking threat beats face.

I hope people realize how good this card is as a 1 drop. If you attack with this turn 2 its a 1/3 for 1cmc... find another one at common. Good luck. Also, if you manage to drop another Exalted critter on turn 2 this is a 2/4 for 1cmc. That's awesome. You won't even need to use the regeneration for quite some time at that rate. Or...

Turn 1: Swamp, Duty-Bound Dead
Turn 2: Cathedral of War, 2nd Duty-Bound Dead, swing w/ first as a 3/5.
Turn 3: Plains, Knight of Glory, swing w/ Duty-Bound Dead for 4/6.
Turn 4: Land, Angelic Benediction, swing w/ Knight of Glory for 7/6 & tap a critter.

I think that's pretty good and these guys make an awesome start to that.

Even if the regen cost is high, it still has regen, and it's still on the curve with another useful ability. Your choice of one drops playing exalted in M13 are basically this or Cathedral of War, since it enters tapped. So, 4/5 from me

Reminds me of the Skull Defenders from Final Fantasy XII. There's a bridge full of them in the Lhusu Mines at Bhujerba.

Fantastic in limited. At the prerelease, my sealed deck contained three of these, Tormented Souls, and used disruption cards like Negate and Mind Rot. These skeletons are good early, mid, and late game, and are never dead in hand.
For constructed, they satisfy the one-drop exalted creature that used to be Akrasan Squire. Otherwise, things like Gravecrawler are scarier one-drops.

You can bet your bottom dollar that I'll be cramming these lil' guys in my Limited decks (assuming I play Black). A 0/2 with Exalted and (an albeit expensive) Regeneration? Now that's getting your mana's worth! Having said that, I clearly won't be playing it in Standard because, I mean, it's a 0/2 that costs 3B to regenerate.

This card is fantastic in limited. I managed to get all 3 of mine out by turn two during a pre release game. next turn aven squire sealed the deal.

Not exactly a Noble Hierarch, but arguably better than Akrasan Squire.

Overall a welcome addition to the exalted family.

First we get Typhoid rats, now this. I'm very happy. Excellent one-drop - especially in black.

One of the best commons in the sets, hands down. 5/5
