One might like the flavor text of this card more, yet M11's War Priest of Thune is a pretty replacement for Monk Realist.
Why content oneself with a 1/1 chump blocker if you might as well have a 2/2 body instead?

@Mode- also, the "you may" is a very handy new component.

Love those trigger effects. A candidate for Astral Slide, Parallax Wave, Sigil of the New Dawn, or Enduring Renewal.

I love the flavour text. That said, I like the card itself too! Destroying an Oblivion Ring or a Pacifism and getting a chump blocker too seems like a pretty good deal to me.

I dunno, he might accidentally blow those enchantments up.

This guy is white's only member of the "2-mana vanilla 1/1 + ETB effect" cycle. Although white gets plenty of bigger 2-drops with nice effects, I hope to see a stronger 1/1 printed to take this monk's place.
White Monk Realist
Blue Whirlpool Rider or Wu Spy (plus lots of flyers)
Black Ravenous Rats or Blister Beetle
Red Sparkmage Apprentice
Green Elvish Visionary or Ironshell Beetle or Sylvan Ranger
