World at War

If you're on the offensive, this is an amazing card. Of course, its power is largely determined by how the board looks and how profitable attacks you can make, but getting to swing twice in a turn gives you a great chance to deal lots of extra damage, or power through blockers. Remember, damage wears off at end of TURN, so if your opponent blocks with the same Wall twice, it can be destroyed by a creature not normally big enough to kill it in one shot. And then World at War rebounds and you get to do it again! Granted your opponent sees it coming this time, and is more likely to have his defenses bolstered, but by this time it's probably too late-- he threw away his chump blocks, took too much to the dome, and didn't get to attack you back because he was fearful of your Beta Alpha Strike.

Constructed- 3
Casual- 4
Limited- 4.5
Multiplayer- 4.5

World at War
 
I remember Relentless Assault. It was a fun card to play around with, and did really funny things with the likes of Goblin Lackey, among others. Since World at War is two Relentless Assaults for the price of one, it's not hard to imagine how you could set up a sequence where the opponent basically has to end the game on their turn, or be completely overrun. It's also great for multiplayer, where you can use the double attack phase on two different people.

Today's card of the day is World at War which for one extra mana is Relentless Assault for two of your turns instead of one.  This is a very powerful effect that will often win a game, but is slightly weaker over the course of a longer game when compared to the similar Waves of Aggression.
 
In Limited this is absolutely a first pick in Booster and with any kind of field presence should put you into the lead towards a swift victory. 
Green creatures with Trample or anything with Flying are very effective when given multiple attacks and should be considered when running two colors in Sealed or while drafting.  An otherwise easy to overlook card like Battle-Rattle Shaman is also drastically improved by using the effect for each combat phase and obvious choices like Traitorous Instinct are devastating.  Another option is using Raid Bombardment combined with several small creatures, even Eldrazi Spawn tokens, which can also make a drastic impact with the extra attacks.
 
Constructed: 4.0
Casual: 4.0
Limited: 4.0
Multiplayer: 4.0
