Quote from Evil Never Dies »You know, in my play group, we wouldn't bother playing wrath, doomskar or other basic wrath effects.
--- I'll stop you right here. As you admit, that is your meta, but your meta is not equal to what is a card potential in a vacuum and how can be used in other EDH playgroups worldwide. My personal experience contradicts yours for example. And that confirm what I'm saying : that whoever says that black mass removals are always useless, it's only because have a limited game experience playing with the same cards and against the same people and judging a card in base of that bias.
I would be willing to concede it is just my meta (consisting of 9 players who 3 of which play in different groups - so actually about a baker's dozen of unique minds) - but look at decks on the command zone (where they literally play commander for a living) - and I think you will see this is a natural progression experienced in commander as a whole. The introduction of non-creature cards in the command zone, heck - we will literally have sorceries in the command zone in a week, the proliferation of etb value, indestructible and other just value engines - along with cards that allow you to ignore a board wipe (teferi's protection), has reduced the potency of those cards. Furthermore, board wipes - when they do work - tend to just make people bored as they spend 2 or 3 turns to rebuild. It is the same line of thinking as why armageddon has been generally frowned upon in commander - it tends to set people back equally and just adds 30 minutes of low interaction to the game, which makes people pull out their phones, go for a cigarette - or otherwise lose an investment in the game. So, yes, I don't think that white's ownership of boardwipes does much to establish it as a color people want to play in commander.
