Or unholy as it may be.
This completely turns the game on its $#$#%#& head. That card will be 20 bucks and in demand in every format, bar none. Black is making out like a bandit with timewalk AND wrath!?!?! I hope you have your black dual lands saved up kiddies, because there's nothing else but b/x from now on.
Quote from LesurgoThe thing I am seeing here is a entrance for power creep. If you give control boosted cards, then you must give aggro more powerful cards to compensate. We've already seen just a glimpse of this with cards such as the white Blastoderm. I wouldn't go calling aggro dead just yet......
Quote from Samurai SoldierDude, if WotC included 100$ bills in packs people would complain about how they are folded.
Quote from Mogg BomberI still disagree strongly that Wrath should be a black effect. Black doesn't care about killing all creatures, it cares about killing creatures that don't have the 'black mindset'. That's why so much black removal can only target non-black creatures.
White & black are the two strongest direct creature removal colors(with red being the strongest indirect through burn). The split is:
combat based removal(Condemn, Reciprocate, etc.)
'destroy all creatures' effects(Wrath effects)
-X/-X effects(Mutilate, Sudden Death, etc.)
'destroy/scare the non-believer' effects(Terror, Dark Banishing, etc.)
Now, the thing to keep in mind is that black doesn't mind sacrificing it's own creatures to do this, as long as they are serving a purpose, beyond just dieing. Decree of Pain is a great example. Yes it kills everything which is slightly off color, but that is not the real flavor of the card. The real flavor is converting creatures into other resources, which is very, very black(do I even need to bother listing examples?). Mutilate is not a 'destroy all creatures' card, it is an 'all creatures get -X/-X card' which is a black effect, not a white one. Yes, most of the time Mutilate will kill everything, but not always and that's the key difference.
Ignoring the flavor, historically it should still be obvious that 'destroy all creatures' effects are 100% white:
Hour of Reckoning
Winds of Rath
And there are others. Would these be white if Wrath of God wasn't around? That's a moot point. It's like asking "Would counters be blue without Counterspell in alpha?" or "What if disenchant was red in alpha?".
Quote from Blinking SpiritWhat?! Look at the initial post; he is dead. Deceased. Kaputt. Indefinitely horizontal. In mafia games, you see, people are occasionally "killed off," and when that sad event occurs, he or she is no longer allowed to post, on account of rigor mortis and what-have-you.
Quote from arimnaes'Welcome to Mafia Salvation', it said, 'Population: 3,660.' And someone, they never figured out who, had painted on the sign in red letters: '1,831 to lynch.'
Quote from YukoraI doubt it will happen, but I sincerely hope this replaces Wrath in the core sets.
