Darksteel Plate will usher in a new the end of days.

Firstly, Planar Chaos was the messed up color pie set, not time spiral. Even then, the Planar Chaos color pie makes about as much sense as the normal one.

Secondly, mass removal has ALWAYS been a white effect. Artifact/enchantment removal has never been in black, and black's mass removal is more like black sun's zenith. The only time black got a wrath effect was in, guess what, planar chaos.

In fact this very same effect was printed as a white spell: akroma's vengeance.

Now, as for the flavor, you actually could argue that this guy should be black. Nevinyrral was a lich from Urborg, who controlled the city also named Urborg (depicted on the "Urborg" card). Liches are overwhelmingly black, and Urborg is just about the blackest place on Dominaria (especially now that it's also Urborg, tomb of Yawgmoth). According to Salvation's article on him, the city of Urborg "was once at war with Bogardan. Little i... (see all)

Darksteel Plate is so very much better than Indestructibility here because Indestructibility only saves it once before being blown up itself. The Plate has the added bonus of being itself indestructible.

That disk needs those tentacles coming out of it.

End of turn, Natural Affinity, activate Magus of the Disk.

I'm a jerk.

"What the hell! This 'Nevinyrral' is talking absolute garbage, I- wait... hang on... that's... yeah, I kinda see what he's saying... hmm... well... actually... I suppose... hmm, you know, now I think about it, this guy might be onto somethi- whoa, that's... wow, this guy is bang on! I'm getting mad just thinking about it! You know what? I'm gonna do it! I'm really gonna do it! I'm going to go blow up the world!"

I've never understood why White loves destroying everything so much. Isn't that supposed to be Red's job?

@Donovan_Fabian; Spellbreaker Behemoth makes it so that creature spells with 5 or greater power can't be countered. It doesn't say anything about being destroyed. I believe you were thinking of Spearbreaker Behemoth. That, and Indestructibility costs 4 mana, though I believe there's a green instant for 1 that makes them indestructible until end of turn- still has synergy, obviously.

Every card in Time Spiral was a throwback to at least one previously printed card.

This card references Nevinyrral's Disk and is part of the "Magus" super cycle of rare creatures. The cards in Time Spiral all reference one of the most powerful artifacts ever; the others are Magus of the Candelabra, Magus of the Mirror, Magus of the Jar, and Magus of the Scroll.

The Planar Chaos part of the cycle focuses on powerful lands: Magus of the Tabernacle, Magus of the Bazaar, Magus of the Coffers, Magus of the Arena, and Magus of the Library. The Future Sight part of the cycle focuses on powerful enchantments: Magus of the Moat, Magus of the Future, Magus of the Abyss, Magus of t... (see all)

You know, if there's one thing that confuses me it's why this guy is white.

I mean, think about it. The original Nevinyrral's disk was not only colorless, but also belonged to Nevinyrral, who was a major necromancer with "draconian judgement" according to this card. Sure, Wrath of God is similar, but it still seems more like it should be Black.
