The Well part only costs one mana, that alone makes this card decent, consider the color alignment with Selesnya.

Populate on Alive would have made this card so good. I'd even pay another one or two mana for that. Sigh.

The good thing about this card is that it's balanced.
Yes, there are Selesnya cards that do these stuff cheaper, but the good thing about this is the versatility. If you don't have a rich man's mana base and play with a deck with MORE THAN 2 colors, you can count to be able to cast this more consistently than a "strictly selesnyan card".
I'm not saying that this is wonderful or anything, just saying that it ain't that bad in a less competitive setting or a more restrictive setting (casual or draft, or something of the sort)

A quite like Alive. It's much like Festival of Trokin or Peach Garden Oath but with the advantage of being able to put out an (admittedly overcosted centaur as well. Sure, not really constructed-worthy, but I consider it quite a fair card.

2.8? srsly? i mean i know selesnya can have the same centaur token for 2cmc but honestly 3 would also be a reasonable price - the extra one is for haveing 2 cards on 1 (every effect on these cards is overpriced) and the other part is a great one for token decks 3.5 in my book

Not too bad for Limited, honestly. The extra body helps and if you fuse this you should be able to gain a decent amount of life if you're running Selesnya colors.

Not the best way to get a token on the field. The lifegain, which could average out to 4-5 life per cast, is no joke and could make the difference.

People seem to be missing that Well is actually a decent card in it's own right; not amazing, but Festival of Trokin and Peach Garden Oath both have a higher rating then this card currently and are "strictly" inferior to Alive//Well, which not only has the same effect for the same price, but also has the option to produce a 3/3 for 4 mana or even fuse to do both.

Sadly, the only things I can think to compare it to are Call of the Conclave and Centaur Healer, and Alive pales in comparison to both.

Three mana more to gain 2+ life over Call, and two mana more to gain 2+ life over Healer if you already have a good board position. And if you do, either there should've been blocks, there are no effective blocks, or you didn't need to. In the latter option, the heal's irrelevant except for possibly dragging the game out longer, and in the first two cases, the heal's not going to help much, maybe delaying by a turn.
