Pernicious Deed

This is the second most useful board sweeper to date I think. Nevinyrral's Disk is pretty damn good still and wipes out just about everything as well. The only true limitation to Pernicious Deed is its casting cost. And even that doesn't stand out as a problem...just a minor limitation.

Pernicious Deed

Do I even have to say how awesome this card is? Symmetrical or not, any card that can wipe out "all" of anything are always worth looking at, because there's always a deck that can produce more of it than you. The flexibility of this card, allowing you to potentially destroy everything that bothers you but leave something especially nasty of your own, makes this card even more incredible. And the icing on the cake is that it doesn't say "can't be regenerated" and is black and green, the colors of regeneration.

Constructed- 4.99
Casual- 4.99
Limited- 5

Pernicious Deed

From one of the lamest Land Sweepers of all time, to one of the greatest board sweepers of all time. Pernicious Deed is great anywhere you play it. If you're in G/B and this is legal, it goes in your deck. If you're in Green or Black, you think about splashing for it. It stops Affinity cold (did you know that Artifact Lands count as artifacts with a cc of 0? Pernicious Deed knows). Have you ever noticed where BDW's mana curve caps out on its creatures? I think Deed can help us there, too. Is that Tinker/Colossus deck getting you down? Then you'd better run something to follow the Deed with. But everywhere else, it's great. Play it.

Constructed - 4.5 (because not every deck can support it)
Casual - 5
Limited - 4.5
 

Aethereal

Pernicious Deed

This has always been a popular and powerful card in the decks that can support it. It allows you to clear the board, and even selectively do it if you have enough mana and you have more expensive permanents than they do. If you are playing B/G and this card is legal, you had better have a good reason to not play it.

In casual, this is a really fun multiplayer card. If you're not interested in B/G, play Disk instead.

In limited, it helps you control the board, and therefore is great to have.

Constructed - 4
