'Journey Into Nyx' preview week: 'Deicide'

Thanks to the wonderful folks over at Loading Ready Run, they have spoiled another card from "Journey Into Nyx." Here is the spoiled card:

This card will be popular in Standard.
Wizards of the Coast

Deicide - 1W - Rare - Instant - Exile target enchantment. If the exiled card is a God card, search its controller's graveyard, hand, and library for any number of cards with the same name as that card and exile them, then that player shuffles his or her library.

Revoke Existence has already proven to be a very powerful spell in this Standard block, and now we have an instant version. It's unfortunate it does not also take care of artifacts, but we can't get everything.

Deicide should be a welcomed addition to many decks that have white, in particular, control decks looking for a way to deal with the indestructible gods. The fact that this spell exiles the enchantment also makes its more effective since there are many abilities that bring enchantments back into a players hand or even back onto the battlefield.

The secondary ability to remove existing copies of the card for the player's library, graveyard, and hand is a wonderful bonus as well. This card will take care of many problems with one swing. With the number of gods and enchantments increasing thanks to the new set, look for Deicide to be one of the most popular cards to come out of the set.

What do you think of Deicide? Is it as good as it looks on paper?
