Wrath of God is such an iconic card that they centered its text. Very subtle, but also very fitting for a card of balance.

Strictly worse than Storm Crow. Storm Crow costs half as much and doesn't destroy your own creatures. Plus, you get Storm Crow for blue mana, which is easier to get in a blue deck than white mana.

@InfernoTowel: given that Progenitus goes back into your library, he manages to escape the full force of God's wrath and can potentially come back to fight another day. =P

In any case, a great card, and for only 4 mana it definitely deserves 5 stars. Early game it can swing the momentum in your favour if you're looking at some solid cards in your hand, mid game it can reset the creature part of the battlefield if things aren't looking too good, and late game if you have enough mana it can clear the field and let you follow up with a powerful creature spell like Conqueror's Pledge - if you manage to have a Coat of Arms out too, it'd be hard to imagine your opponent getting enough blockers to survive the 30 points of damage that would be coming their way next turn.

Hahaha, why play this in a creature deck at all? Creatureless control wins games because they put in white for this card. I can't believe I haven't seen more than one or two people here mention something other than creature-based decks.

Seriously. If you're afraid of your creatures dying, this isn't the card for you. Let a control player take the wheel with this one.

Man, I finally got to use this card in a four-way match last night. Bye Inkwell Leviathan, bye Simic Sky Swallower, you shrouded jerks. Next turn, hellooooo Akroma!

This card can reliably be played in 9 out of 10 decks with white in them.

Simply Awesome. Long time favorite!

God is angry!

This card has always been THE epitome of removal to me. Others may kill more stuff, maybe do something like it for less, but none can compare to how iconic and recognizable Wrath of God is. You remember THIS card being cast against you.

The three stages in the development of a Magic player, as evidenced by reaction to Wrath of God:

Noob: "What the hell? Why would I want to destroy my own creatures? This sucks!"
Getting there: "Hmm...Maybe I could hold on to my creatures and cast them after I cast this!"
Bingo: "Ghostway."
