This card would have been playable as a sorcery.

A great card! A good example of powerful common removal, alongside such classics as Terror. It's also worth mentioning that this gives black access to direct exiling of creatures, an area it is sadly lacking in.

I'm waiting for an exile revival set. We have a few spells (like Mirror of Fate) but they are more or less useless without a LOT of effort. But once it becomes a theme or sub-theme of a set, we'll probably get things like AWOL outside of an UN-set. :-D

Yet another awesome removal card in Orzhov colors.
And best of all, this one's hybrid mana (probably my favorite new mechanic since Imprint).

And now this are all reasons I'm glad Black and White are Blue's "ally colors".

If you don't like this art, check out the textless player rewards version.
That has one of my favorite pieces of MtG art ever.

@use643- I would wager it's rated higher than Journey to Nowhere and Fiend Hunter because it's an instant that can't be removed later. Path to Exile is slightly harder to explain, but it's likely because exiling a creature regardless of color is almost unheard of in Black (don't forget this is just as Black as it is White- its mana flexibility is probably another reason for its high rating).

@Lueseto: Because Path is pure white, whereas this can be played in mono black. Black doesn't get a whole lot of exile effects. It's similar to how Harmonize is rated higher than Concentrate.

This has its uses over Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares. Both White exiles give the opponent something in exchange (land and life respectively). If you don't want them to get either of those, then Unmake is a pretty good choice. Still, since they cost 2 less, the other two are better most of the time. 4/5

Why is everyone harping on about Path To Exile? My mono-black Demon deck needs a way to deal with Avacyn without splashing the enemy colour.

Not strictly better than Oblivion Ring, simply reread that card a few times to see why.

...all set? Aside from only working on creatures, Emrakul's "protection from spells" works against this card, but not O-Ring.

Excellent removal for peasant/pauper along with Journey to Nowhere.
