Quote from Bludale »Are we also still reliant on a board sweeper such as damnation or not so much anymore? I'm sure it's still good to have around but do we actually need it?
I've found that we really do need at least one Damnation in the sideboard (i play a 3 sweeper mix of Anger, Explosives, and Damnation). It's a great reset button against the creature decks that can overwhelm the spot removal. I can't count the number of games I've come back from with a timely Damnation. It's especially great against Humans and Spirits, as their creatures can get out of range of Anger. It's even decent against Dredge, but i'd always prefer to have a Nihil Spellbomb or Tormod's Crypt in play at the same time. I've even used it to beat Slivers, since it shuts down Sedge Sliver.
