And here I thought Chain Reaction was a powerful board sweeper..

Yes! A red board wipe that doesn't destroy lands! Looks like they're trying to make red better for EDH, at least as a support color. Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is happy.

It'd be funny with Stuffy Dolls and Spitemares all over the place

Take it to the face, Army of the Damned.

@Toquinha, no, protection from red will absolutely save a creature from this, because even though it's not targeted, it's doing damage, which protection prevents regardless. People REALLY need to learn protection rules.

A card with protection from X cannot be targeted, blocked, damaged, OR enchanted by anything with the characteristic of X.
Still the world's best target for Hallow.

Just watch out for Phyrexian Obliterators.

I think that I haven't read "multiplayer" yet... In 4 or 5 player, it's so easy to pay only Red to clean the battlefield! I want four! Cheaper than every other Wrath of God version, not more effective but funnier and easier to abuse!

In a duel, after the first, your opponent can play around it and you have to pay about 6Red to destroy a couple of creatures... Not so great anymore! Good, but not extremely good... Better card can be the usual suspects: Pyroclasm, Slagstorm, Volcanic Fallout, Sulfurous Blast (yes, I think it's a good card...), and the new Mizzium Mortars.

I really like these kind of "burn everything" in red, it's the red kind of control! This one in particular is so hilarious! You deal 13 damages to a bounch of 2/2 or 3/3 creatures, more than enought to kill them 3 or 4 times... Talk about overkill!

Beautiful boardwipe that can even be hardcast after severe land destruction most of the time. Combos well with Blazing Shoal due to the high CMC and the ability to bypass it and play this spell at a reasonable price.

The reason that this doesn't have affinity for creatures is because it's not affinity for creatures. affinity only counts things you own. That said, this card remains, in my opinion, the best board sweeper out there. Not strictly better, for a myriad of reasons, but generally better.
