Sunscour - Coldsnap. Rare
5WW: Sorcery
You may remove two white cards in your hand from the rather than pay Sunscour's mana cost.
Destroy all creatures.



The "new" wrath of god. Removing two white cards from your hand to whipe the board is cool. However, with 2 cards from your hand into your graveyard, you lose that much of having a chance to come back faster than your opponent. It's a nice secondary cost, but i'd rather stick with WOG. It's much safer. Not to mention, this card can only workin White Weenie or a mono white deck and it seems as though they'll try to drop all their weenies so not enough for the cost as well.


The Duck's Rating: 2.75/5

WoG is better hands down, I'm pretty sure that sunscour wont see play just like all the other wrath like cards in the past.casual 1.5/5 tournament 1/5

Hmm... Not bad.

Not great either though. Wrath of God wrecks this due to the fact that you would probably want to USE those cards you discarded after this goes off. Using this is kind of provisional. 2.5/5

If I were playing a white weenie deck with a card like this...I would grab Hour of Reckoning, pile on the tokens and start beating my opponent around with a stick.

Granted, this card has its uses, but you'll be removing cards from the game, and I don't see how you're gonna get them back. And not that it's particularly useful, anyways. Sure, you can pull weenies and start killing your opponent, but at this sort of situation, every card matters, and I sure won't waste those two cards to wipe the field. As you all have said, just Wrath f God and be done with it.

2.5/5.

It's not too fair to say that all "re-makes" of wrath suck. >_>. Sunscour isn't the best one, but how can you say that Akroma's didn't see play? In ways, it was BETTER than wrath.

Don't be hating. :X

Ahh... Yes, Akroma's Vengeance.
This card... It's probably only any use against token decks or with Spellbook.
