Kozilek's Return
Pyroclasm-style effects are a lot rarer nowadays than they used to be, much less at instant speed - that alone made me sit up and take notice of this card. When I realized that it's also on-theme for the Eldrazi (and Rise of the Eldrazi) in discouraging opposing small-creature swarms while leaving your larger creatures relatively unharmed, and clears the path of anything up to and including Siege Rhino (almost uncounterably, too!) when your big Eldrazi finisher is on its way, I started to think it was a top-class card. And when I remembered what devoid does and how much misery Kor Firewalker still causes people, I decided I'd be surprised if it didn't end up being one of the most in-demand cards in Oath of the Gatewatch.
Constructed: 4/5

Multiplayer: 4/5
EDH/Commander: 4/5

Kozilek's pyroclasm
How to make pyroclasm a $20 card. add additional 1 mana cost, make it instant speed with a useless keyword (seriously, i'm glad this is probably the end of Devoid), make it mythic, and add a recursion effect that benefits a very small minority of players who use big eldrazi.
