Between this, Beast Within, Putrefy, Krosan Grip and (God forbid it) Damnation, there isn't a single thing black/green decks should have trouble dealing with. Even if you say counterspells, black has the whole suite of Duress-type discard spells, which should give you a fair shot at taking away their control before they get to use it. Your win condition? Thornling and Obstinate Baloth seem like solid bets.

Vindicate is still better in my opinion but it's also far more expensive (moneywise) and not modern legal.

@Patronofthesound: Just because people don't like land destruction doesn't mean it's not tremendously powerful and useful especially in competitive environments. You can land screw your opponent, destroy an annoying land that would otherwise cost you like Wasteland or use combos like recursion effects (Eternal Witness + Deadeye Navigator will let you Vindicate as much as you have the mana for) to keep getting Vindicate back and slowly destroy all your opponents' lands.

This solves so many problems.

Would be nice to have this in standard now with stupid Squadron Hawk pecking everyone to death

"Just" a Vindicate without the forbidden land destruction, but it also deals with tokens. The Echoing of the effect is likely not very relevant.

It's a nice slick way to sneak Planeswalker destruction in. Black and green are probably the colors that can't deal with the new card type the most. Red has burn; White's been getting temporary exiling of permanents; Blue has counters as always. Green and Black have to 'resort' to combat damage, but they've been getting their own answers too.

At its worst, this thing still insta-kills any permanent that isn't indestructible or shrouded. Three mana to nuke a Planeswalker is a pretty good deal.

Mirror-sigil sergeant's bane
this is the first thing I ban with meddling mage if my opponent seems to be using jund colors

Hey, what's up Vindica-!... Oh, Maelstrom Pulse! Sorry, you looked like someone else I knew.

this card wrecks white weenie and time sieve every time.

Amazing, versitile removal.

Most of the time, it won't hit multiple things. Even when it doesn't however, it's still the ability to destroy pretty much anything that's a problem, including Planeswalkers for only 3 mana. When you get to hit multiple oblivion rings or tokens, it becomes seriously powerful.
