Wrath of the West

This card is comparable to Many Sorrows Befall, yet is limited both in subject matter (minion resource short events) and the degree of chance (50% either way) affecting the outcome. This is compensated by the fact that this card is not unique.

It can, like MSB, only target cards during the movement/hazard phase. Still, its ability to cancel prowess enhancements or attack nullifiers is a great addition to your hazard arsenal.

You can even surprise your opponent by cancelling his efforts to nullify a corruption card; i.e., Voices of Malice, et cetera. Effectively have four in your deck, the first three being Wrath of the West and the fourth being an MSB.

You can recycle them any number of ways, from An Unexpected Outpost to the Mouth of Sauron. While this card is useful only against minion players, it is a very handy card when you sit opposite a Ringwraith player. Therefore, this deserves a place in your x versus minion deck.

the lesson to be learned here is to know your opponent - this uncommon card can be quite useful but only against certain decks - and totally useless against others - player beware -
