Awesome artwork, just ridiculous.

I can only assume Wrath was removed from the core set so that WotC could do a renamed version of it in Zendikar. This gives M10 a Wrath effect, while being different enough from the Zendikar Wrath (greater cost, hits all non-lands, doesn't prevent regeneration) that they can share the Standard format without '8-of'ing each other.

I agree that Austere Command is better because it's more easy to twist into an advantage for you. Planar Cleansing *does* hit planeswalkers though (ironic, given its name).

"Destroy everything.'"

How powerful does that sound?

I wonder how much an effect like that would cost...

Some commenters are saying that this card is expensive. Seriously, though: why would anyone want to bring out this card anytime before, say, Turn 4? The card has an appropriate cost for when it would be cast: during mid-game (around Turns 4-8 with some mana acceleration for the earlier turns) when the opponent has a material advantage and/or nasty enchantments that you want to eradicate.

If anyone wants a pre-Turn 4 board clearer, then splash some red and cast either Pyroclasm or a 3-pt. Earthquake. Both of these cards would clear most weenies in a pre-Turn 5 environment. Or, if you're worried about a horde of Vengevines, then... well, okay, Wrath of God.

In any case, Planar Cleansing has its uses.

You want to spend 6 mana then regenerate during the same turn? Nah drop some indestructibles like darksteel ingot and darksteel plate. You might be able to fit in a couple regenerators though if you really want, but not too many.

This is good, but what about the land creatures made with Liege of the Tangle? They're lands, so they're immune to this. That's good or bad, depending on who plays it.

Michael Komark is one of the most talented artist in MTG. Do an advanced search with his name and youll see.

The shading on this is beautiful. I like that artists assigned Wrath effects are all trying to prove they can outdo Kev Walker (who gets props for having instantly newly-iconic Wrath art).

With a slight palette change, I could see this art working for Evacuation too.

This card makes for an interesting comparison with All is Dust, which is splashable, but costs 1 more and doesn't hit artifacts. Makes me wonder how often the artifact destruction is meaningful.

Apparently due back in M13, probably because its casting cost makes it more of a counterweight to Mutilate than Day of Judgement would be.

EDIT: Well, I got the "due back" part right, but I misrecalled Mutilate's casting cost as 5B rather than 2BB...
