Drown in Sorrow is one of the newest "Born of the Gods" cards spoiled today Jan 15, 2014 in an update to the card image gallery on Wizards.com. This powerful uncommon sorcery can potentially wipe out your opponent's side of the battlefield.
Drown in Sorrow - 1BB
All creatures get -2/-2 until end of turn. Scry 1. (Look at the top card of your library. You may put that card on the bottom of your library.)
"The sad truth is that the Whip of Erebos is long enough to wrap around all our throats."

Drown in Sorrow is a powerful new tool for black devotion decks to abuse, completely devastating deck archetypes which rely upon swarming with weenie creatures like those revolving around battalion. While red's Anger of the Gods has slightly more reach Drown in Sorrow has the benefit of knocking out indestructible creatures or those with protection from black thanks to it's global affect.
Don't forget that Drown in Sorrow also allows you Scry one, improving card quality by transforming a junk land into a business spell and helping you dig into your deck for a specific card you need to win the game. That makes Drown in Sorrow significantly more powerful compared to Infest from "Onslaught" and "Shards of Alara" which saw competitive play. Even if Drown in Sorrow doesn't make main decks expect it to appear in the sideboard of many black "Magic: The Gathering" player's decks.
