Marsh gas isn't strictly better, it works much differently as a combat trick. Imagine someone crashing in with a bunch of bears, and the other person blocks with a bunch of bears. Not exactly a narrow case, either.
Oh, and does this look familiar?
Maybe someone was inspired over there by this awful card.

I will ask you a question. If given two options, vs a random opponent, and no possible way of knowing what his deck contains....

Would you rather take Hell Swarm or Marsh Gas? The answer is almost always Marsh Gas. Its very rare you would rather see hell swarm in your hand, so I think it fits the strictly better clause, because you would want the stronger effect.

You gotta love how Wizards realized this card sucked and obsoleted it by the next set with Marsh Gas, which still sucks BTW...

Almost feels like it should have given out -0/-1 to all creatures, or something. Not only does Marsh Gas outdo it (and still be a poor card), this one was rendered useless in the same set by Darkness, the black version of Fog.

Again, I think somebody missed something when this card was created.

This could really mess up someone's Storm Crow deck. I'll have four, please.

Marsh Gas is strictly better.

I like the dramatic atmosphere of this card, though.
By coincidence, the way the flavor text mentions the battlefiled (which replaces the in-play zone these days) even makes sense with the functionality of this card.

Cards this weak should just be free. No, free is still too expensive... you should add one black mana to your pool just for casting it.
