Strictly better then M11 or M12 Day of Judgment.
Sorin: Putting black flavor into white cards anytime.
Posted By: Oracle_Fefe (10/1/2011 10:47:51 PM)


Destroying all creatures is primarily a white effect. Though black occasionally gets such effects, you should not look at Damnation as evidence the ability should be black, as it is from Planar Chaos, a set where the color pie was intentionally in disorder and not representing itself as it normally does.

This printing gets .5 more stars than the M11 version for the flavor text alone.

Sorin is an excellent example of how to do a black planeswalker who isn't just KILL EM ALL! Liliana Vess is another one. In fact, Wizards have done a great job with preventing black 'walkers from just being evil by default.

I think that this card trumps WoG, if not for the ability to save your creatures, at least the awesome Sorin Markov flavor text and the awesome art of creatures getting blown to bits.

I wish there was a picture of River Boa regenerating in the art...

"I have seen planes leveled and all life rendered to dust. It brought no pleasure, even to a heart as dark as mine." - Sorin Markov
Get ready to be displeased again, Sorin. The Eldrazi whom you reference are coming to level planes and render all life to dust once more.

Yes, people are fast to say it's worse than Wrath because it doesn't have the "can't be regenerated" line, but think of this: Loxodon Hierarch or Wrap In Vigor, anyone?

OK to all the people that cant find the difference between this card and wrath of God its that wrath doesnt allow regeneration. sooo maybe you have a white/black deck with lots of zombies that are regenerated, then after you play day of judgement you'll have a significant advantage over your opponent. and thats just one example.

Love the flavor text.

There's obviously some haters out there, but even they must agree that this is some nice artwork.


Also, I detect some anti-God (of the Judeo-Christian sort) sentiments in the flavor text, which, as a philosophy major, is very interesting to me. The phrase "Day of Judgment" obviously alludes to the Bible's end times, and the fact that the writer of this flavor text makes one of Magic's darkest characters seem to disprove of this widespread destruction that is being attributed to a Judeo-Christian-like God is very interesting. It implies that the writer believes that the Judeo-Christian God is a morally worse being than the cruel Sorin Markov.

I love when MTG puts philosophical ideas in flavor text, even if I do not necessarily agree with a given idea. Good stuff!
