For many years, I took it as an article of
faith wasn't really possible to make a better
card than Wrath of God. I guess they showed me.
Sure, they had to add another color to do it,
but there is almost no time you are sad to see
this card in your hand. You want everything to
die? Everything's going to
die. The often-popular and usually-fearsome aggro
decks that can counter the control deck's Wrath
of God variant are going to have to do some hard
thinking just because this card exists.
The number three card of the year is Supreme
Verdict which is a four mana White and Blue that
destroys all creatures and can't be countered.
For a Blue/White control theme this is an
excellent card with no real drawback that is
even strong in a mirror match. Board
sweeping will always be a valuable option,
particularly in Multiplayer where this is even
more impressive, and with the reasonable cost
and prevention of counters it will be a popular
card for a very long time.
In Limited the double White in the cost and need
to at least splash some Blue keeps this to a few
guilds with a focus on Azorius, but the low
overall cost and power make it an easy first
pick in Booster even as a hate draft if it is
out of color. Almost any Blue/White deck
in Sealed should be including this, barring a
near total swarm build which is unlikely in the
