Compare to the uncounterable Obliterate.

These cards are wonderful. They provide a foil to many different strategies, are tricky to use effectively, and encourage creative deck building. The Johnny in me sees this card and is excited that enchantments, planeswalkers, and indestructible permanents escape. Not to mention the fact that suspend works wonders here.
Cards that I love in my Jokulhaups decks:
Darksteel Sentinel, Darksteel Ingot
Spiteful Visions, Manabarbs
Greater Gargadon, Search for Tomorrow
Chandra Nalaar, Ajani Vengant

Apparently you don't understand the meaning of the term "strictly worse." That term suggests that Obliterate is better in every single way than this card. In other words, Obliterate would have to do everything this card does, only better or cheaper. Yes, Obliterate is uncounterable. But it also costs 2 more to cast. A card with a higher mana cost cannot be strictly better, because it has a higher mana cost. It's not really that complicated.

I won an EDH game on the back of this card once, but everyone was mad at me for doing so. Cards that make you lose friends are no good.

This card is great in an artifact deck with Darksteel Forge and lands such as Great Furnace and Darksteel Citadel.

Not a bad follow up to Form of the Dragon. Not that it's ever a bad card to have.

@ MizukiAyu: You're not looking at your card close enough. That expansion set mark is not silver, it's plain black and white. Please look at the 5th Edition card and you'll see that there is no mark at all. Ice Age and 5th Edition sets were printed before Wizards decided to add rarity markers.

@EvilCleavage Indestructible stuff wouldn't be wiped out. Almost all mass removal is a "destroy" effect, which indestructibility promptly ignores

@EvilCleavage: I suppose you're referring to Apocalypse?

@Gelzo: The best reason to hate this card would probably be the land destruction. Spells that whipe the board of non-land permanents are common in EDH, and you should expect them if anyone at the table is playing white. However, mass land destruction is probably more rare, and let's be honest, one of the most hated things in the game is no doubt land destruction.

On the bright side, if your deck can handle the land destruction, this card is incredibly powerful. It doesn't even have to be EDH - running this with Greater Gargadon in casual is definitely possible.

Works well with most enchantments, not just ones that win you the game when this spell resolves. I wonder if there are any enchantments that produce mana. I'm pretty sure there aren't, but if one was printed, it would work well with this card :D
