1.

General Comments

Celestial Emissary is neither a popular card in Standard nor the Arena. Though the Battlecry effect on Celestial Emissary seems like the perfect complement to Unexpected Results, the combination of these two cards has proven itself to be far less powerful than most players had expected before the release of The Boomsday Project.

2.

Constructed Play

Despite the popularity of Tempo Mage in the current metagame, Celestial Emissary has not been a popular card in Standard. The repeated Spell Damage bonus which comes from Cosmic Anomaly makes it substantially stronger than Celestial Emissary, which can only be used to power up a single spell. For Celestial Emissary to earn its keep in Constructed, I would expect that an Elemental Mage deck would need to surface.

3.

Arena

A 2 Mana 2/1 is quite weak in the Arena, where it is also difficult to draft numerous cards which will benefit from Celestial Emissary's Battlecry. I would avoid drafting Celestial Emissary unless I was in dire need of a 2 drop.
