Vengeful Extermination 6WW
This spells costs 1 less to cast for each creature on the battlefield.
Destroy all creatures. Odric despised violence, but he doesn't mourn for those he slayed. He only cares about lives he saved.
Welcome to White, Blasphemous Act. It's a more reliable sweeper, but in most cases they should act exactly the same.
Less impactful in white. White already has tons of board wipe options compared to red and Blasphemous Act can actually be built around as a wincon.
The one thing I can think of that this does well is that its cheap cost allows monowhite to cast an indestructible spell alongside it which used to be hard to do. Hour of Revelation is already in this space, though it needs a spell to protect your artifacts, which makes this easier to play in budget decks since there's a slew of budget spells that only protect creatures.
Yeah that'll see play in standard. Only need three creatures on board to get to 5 for a standard rate sweeper. If you're not running it in the main it's surely a good sideboard card for wide board decks.
If it ends up being relatively inexpensive, I'm getting six of them for EDH, but as has been said, since white already has a ton of wraths, they aren't "must buy"s especially if they end up pricey. Two mana for a wrath DOES make it much easier to pair it with your mass-indestructibility trick or similar.
Yes, white has lots of options, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve needed to wrath the board mid-game and then not had the mana left to cast another spell that same turn. The fact this can cost just WW in many cases makes it much more likely you’ll be able to drop a creature post-Wrath on the same turn.

Jeez, they are making unconditional wipes quite expensive these days, Black gets one at 6 mana with a "plus" that won't matter much most of the time, and now this for White, unless you're playing against a deck that goes really wide and floods the board with 4+ creatures, you'll be paying 6 mana for this one a depressing amount of times...
actually, what blood on the snow get matter in standard
I'm talking about the additional effect of bringing back a creature or planeswalker, you need to be quite snow-heavy and have an actual creature or walker to bring back, so at least in control decks it's not really that useful. Orzhov Angels may get more mileage out of it, or Monoblack Zombies if that becomes a thing in the new format.
Now the question is does this surpass the blasphemous act it cost 1 more mana than blast if to the max but it defeats the protection from white creature when act couldn't do that for the protection from red creature
