Pretty bad.
You'll usually want a fireball, that has the POSSIBILITY of hitting players, and it doesn't become harder to use as your opponent gets more creatures on the field.
If this is something you were seriously considering, you might want to go with Pyroclasm instead.
Or maybe just an actual fireball.

If it was rounded UP, instead of rounded DOWN, this card would still suck. It would at least be so-so sucky at least.

Not even 'meh'. It's splitting its damage among all of your opponent's creatures (and none to your opponent). Even if your opponent has one creature, you're better off with almost any other burn spell...

Perhaps if the dwarves had relied less on their catapults, there would be more of them in MtG today. The best thing about Dwarven Catapult is that it was never re-printed and Wizards gave us Pyroclasm within six months.
I can't help but think Dwarven Catapult was designed for an exclusively FE environment. The best creatures in FE, Order of Leitbur and Order of the Ebon Hand, both have 1 toughness. FE had swarms: think Thallid, Homarid Spawning Bed, Breeding Pit, Icatian Town, etc. I suspect this was (supposed to be) a FE hoser.

Imagine how useful this card would've been if it only rounded up and not down.

(Remember, it does have one small advantage: It doesn't target, so it can hit creatures with Hexproof and Shroud. Also, a lot of the fireball-alikes people compare it to are Sorceries, while this is an Instant. Still pretty terrible.)
