This guy is starting to seem relevant again as two of the top decks are based around searching. However, Wolf Run is packing some heat for it with 3-4 Beast Within and Slagstorms. Perhaps Spellskites/Metamorph could keep spot removal away from the cat.
Anyways, what is the general consensus about the viability of this card and the role that he can play in the meta? Is there any deck that could easily take advantage of the ability he provides? Or would a deck need to be built around him? Can he stay on the board long enough to affect the game?

Actually, I don't think that's a terrible idea. The reason Arbiter never really worked pre-rotation was two-fold.
Firstly, it was just better to have Stoneforge Mystic and Squadron Hawk than it was to try and stop your opponents'.
Second, doesn't stop searches, it just slows them down. That means that, e.g. vs Valakut, you can't just play him and then assume you've won - you need to be applying beatdown pressure at the same time.
That in mind, it plays a similar role to Grand Abolisher out of the SB in WW decks against the Primeval Titan decks.
