Supreme Verdict
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 format.
Constructed: 4.0
Casual: 4.0
Limited: 4.0
Multiplayer: 5.0
