Well, at worst, it is just a Disenchant that can't destroy Artifacts.

At best, it can destroy a complete strategy (ex : Ramping with Utopia Sprawl, Overgrowth, etc.).

It just does greatly what it should do : destroying Enchantment.

Sideboardable card against enchantment heavy decks of an opposing color... you don't see too many of those, though.

@Myxomorph much better without painters servant so long as you arent both playing the same colors. Only time id want to add painters servant is with lots of indestructible cards in play

Everyone will rate cards differently, and for different reasons. This card has fantastic art and flavor text that makes a point, and some people like that, you know? that brings the average up.
Other considerations for a card would be casual play, block constructed, limited play, how it was in the standard format it was in. I'm sure not everyone who has rated this card has actually put it in a deck at one point. There are probably a couple of people who treasure the card for various reasons, such as memorable situations of using it. Hell, someone may have rated it down because they got demolished by it!
Personally, I think a 5 is not "I have to put it in all of my decks." That's because I make a shitton of decks. Some people, on the other spectrum, feel differently because they add and remove cards from one deck they've had for forever. The rating system is very open ended! So don't facepalm the voters, mate!

Devastating and to some extent functional.

i run this in a straight white deck with only one enchantment, its amazing!

4 stars? *face palms voters.
good but not "OMG! i WANT in all my white decks!" good (a four star rating implies this. 5 star means you'll add another color just to throw this in)

A friend of mine runs Zedruu, the Great-hearted in our local EDH meta. He builds for himself a pillow fort of enchantments in the vein of Ghostly Prison and Solitary Confinement, and uses cards such as Form of the Dragon, Transcendence, and Statecraft to nuke opposing players by donating to them. Out of my Numot, the Devastator deck, my arsenal of enchantment hate cards includes this.

Another friend of mine runs Bruna, Light of Alabaster. For him, I always search up this and Tormod's Crypt. The biggest targets are Righteous Authority and Steel of the Godhead. He concedes to that on the spot. It's wonderful building a deck full of silver bullets when you have 63 slots to work with.

"White Orbital Laser calibrated to enchantments, Captain."

"Excellent. Fire at will!"
