World Queller

This card is the built in answer for any permanent type you want. Choose Planeswalker one turn and make them sacrifice their Garruk, then next turn name land and start Strip Mining them to lock them out. Or name creature until you're the only one with any left. And you don't have to worry about maindecking Naturalize anymore-- just name artifact or enchantment!
Do be careful though, since you'll have to sack a permanent of the chosen type as well-- including World Queller itself if you have no other creatures. Or your own Oblivion Rings, forcing you to give back whatever you Ringed out earlier. Works best in a token deck, where you can make them sacrifice all their creatures, then start in on their lands.

Constructed- 3.5
Casual- 3.25
Limited- 4
Multiplayer - 4

World Queller

There's a lot to like about this card. Asymmetrical "symmetry" is always useful, as we've seen everywhere from Balance to Grave Pact to Tangle Wire to Innocent Blood to Damnation. Very few of these types of cards were ever able to attack as well. This guy is simply unfair against decks that can't keep up (might I suggest Honden of Life's Web?) or that you can slow down enough that it hurts even more.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 4/5
Multiplayer: 3/5

World Queller

 

Constructed: I think it has a niche in some decks with control in them. It can get Planeswalkers off the field. White has some cool stuff in Zendikar.

 

Casual & Multiplayer: Something annoying on the field for everyone, just name it's card type and watch it go away.

 

Limited: This is a interesting card for limited. Just be carefull when naming creatures. Good thing it does not fly.

 

Overall a very similar to Braids, but only during your upkeep and you have some control of what gets sac. And it has another Planeswalkers comment in the flavor text.

 

Constructed: 3

Casual: 3

Multiplayer: 4

Limited: 4

Michael "Maikeruu" Pierno Today's card of the day is World Queller a five mana 4/4 that can remove a threat on each of your upkeep phases. The best case scenario is of course when the threat is a type your opponent has that you do not, such as a single Planeswalker, Artifact, or Enchantment. It is more difficult to manage for creatures as it is likely they will have more than one, but sacrificing a token to remove a Progenitus would be a very impressive play.

For Constructed and Casual this is a decent card at the cost and the toughness keeps it just out of many common removal options for Red or Black. Needing to stay in play until your next upkeep prevents this from being a top tier card even though the effect is potentially repeatable.

With Limited a 4/4 for five mana isn't horrible in and of itself, but the effect in an environment with less removal is very desirable and harder to remove. In Sealed this is the kind of card that makes playing White almost a given and is also a great first pick in Booster. With Planeswalkers in set, but not White itself this can be one of your only options for easily handling the threat they pose.

In Multiplayer the each player attribute adds a bit of weight to the effect and can cause some interesting politics around the table.

Constructed: 3.5
Casual: 3.5
Limited: 4.5
Multiplayer: 4.0
