Flexible, exiling removal can be a massive house in the right situation, and Farewell lets you hit what you need to potentially turn the tides. It’s not cheap, but it’s a flexible board wipe that even can take out graveyards, and that’s certainly quite nice in the right scenario! Six mana isn’t cheap, of course, but decks that control the game have a new tool to keep the screws nice and tight.
Commander [EDH]: 4.5
A pretty solid board wipe when you’re down and need time to rebuild your boardstate. Lands remain untouched which is nice because it helps you and doesn’t make you the most hated person in the pod. The downside is the higher casting cost could put you behind a turn as in you’ll be using most of your mana to play it more often than not. The graveyard removal is a nice touch in eternal formats and commander, shutting down flashback and Dredge like strategies.

They must have been more careful with elegant one-word names than I realized, because I was genuinely surprised that they haven’t used this one before now. Six mana gets you an incredible degree of flexibility – you can “sweep and keep” with the right table, or you can remove more things at once than since Obliterate was commonly played. Just watch out for opposing planeswalkers!
Commander [EDH]: 4/5
