About time!
I love the flavor text on it. "Guess it wasn't Darksteel after all - Koth"
shatter wasn't destroyed by ancient grudge enough, we need to make moar cards that are strictly better.
Wow, I gues whoever smelt it DID dealt it

Agreed
This is definitely going to be a chase uncommon. $2-3

I don't think Shatter will disappear forever, though, as it's a common and Pauper only allows common (or is that Peasant... always confuse the two).

Death to swords!
Yeah no more shatter
worship the horn

Guess I'm putting my beta shatters back in the binder .
We'd already seen countless times that Shatter occupied a similar space to Cancel in that it was just over the default cost for the effect, so R&D had no reservations printing strictly better variations on the effect.

Shattering Pulse
Smash to Smithereens
Ancient Grudge
Fury Charm

Interestingly enough, R&D avoided this very card for so long, not because they didn't think they could get away from it, clearly that's not the issue, but because it had such a wonderfully resonant connection between the name of the card and the function.

Shatter
Destroy target artifact.

It worked so well.

RIP
Artifact/enchantment removal is all sideboard materials these days anyways. I rarely see anyone playing with it unless it is universal. So same with this... it'll be a sideboard hero
On the one hand, I had expected this card for a while as a mirror to Demystify. On the other hand, I thought that Crush fit that role pretty well and had the noncreature clause to make things fair (because there is only one enchantment creature in Magic.

But I guess they preferred elegance and not frustrating people who want their sideboard card to act the way they expect, rather than balance.

(Yeah I said it... R&D has long ignored the issue of how much should a very narrow but powerful removal spell cost after all? As a one mana instant, Demystify could dominate the format if enchantments were something that showed up on a regular basis, but because that never happens, they've never had to question it). 
Oh snap, that is good!  I'm glad they're making this.
Come check out my friend's youtube channel where he gives bad movies what's coming to them!

Yeah this made me sad too. I picked up a set from a friends collection randomly. I really liked em for the looks and was still playable in various decks.

Now... Whats the point?!
According to everyone on these forums. You should only play the best decks in whatever format you want. You are a bad player and should just quit if you intend on using anything else.

Decent sideboard card I doubt it will be a chase uncommon though.

Only complaint I have is that this isn't common.

Where are you guys seeing this at uncommon?  From the sites I can find they are all listening it as a common.
For that cost it should be a sorcery
So...upgraded shatter and smash? Ok.
