Replace the word "Creatures" with Permanents, and turn it to a mythic. Now we're talking :D:D:D:D:D Lulz

I like to call this the poor man's Wrath of God lol. However I like it for a number of different reasons. I look at this and Planar Cleansing as affordable alternatives for mass removal for magic players on a budget. It is cards like this that should be accessible to players that want to atleast stand some sort of a chance in semi-competitive magic. People who want to toss out a bit of extra dough, get an extra effect (Wrath of God which sounds fair to me).

This board sweep allows for regeneration strategy, which also works just fine. Even though I personally prefer Wrath of God, then Graceful Reprieve to bounce creatures back for the win.

Sure its not quite a Wrath, but in all honesty - cards like this are just what Magic needs. Affordable bang for your budget that get the job done. 4.5/5

Here's a small use for this card: Run several regenerators. You now have a one-sided boardwipe.

Yes, very usable card. My question has to do with the wording: "Destroy all creatures".

Since it is a 'destroy' effect, would indestructible creatures survive? If not, why not?
Since it is a 'white' source, would protection from white prevail? If not, why not?

Inquiring minds want to know ...

This card and me have a love hate relationship. See, me and my buddies would always play these silly ridiculous token decks, where a common game would end up his army of 45 1/1's with double strike and lifelink that he could sack to prevent combat damage versus my army of 70 1/1s with double strike and lifelink and gettin almost twice as more every turn. Then we started getting into more competitive play, and he started picking up this card. I was still figuring out the best and fastest ways to play aggro in standard. He kicked my ass. Every time. So I hate this card cuz its annoying but it really has to make me think on how to beat it and has turned me into a better player.

And now I play control.

@StephenF: Indestructible creatures would survive. You can also regenerate a creature to save it from the graveyard.

Protection from white would not help a creature in this case. That's because protection only prevents the creature from being damaged, enchanted/equipped, blocked, and targeted. Anything else that might happen gets past protection.

I learned a valuable lesson a few weeks ago:

If you want your girlfriend to ever play Magic with you, do not cast this on her turn using Leyline of Anticipation. I can't blame her for not wanting to play after she gets you down to 2 life by casting a Malakir Bloodwitch, outnumbers you creature-wise 5 to 1 and believes she is swinging for the win in her first match ever. She didn't hit me again that match and I ended up winning easily.

She wouldn't play again for a month. I can't blame her.

Mycosynth Lattice; followed by any destroy all artifacts.
Enchanted Evening; followed by any destroy all enchantments.
Fracturing Gust suddenly comes to mind.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
