Wrathful Smite can cause the game to freeze/unresponsive

What were you expecting to happen, and what actually happened
Wrathful Smite spell text says: Deal xxx damage as dark. If Shield Gems are not in play, destroy x yellow gems.

When I use Wrathful Smite on board with NO shield gems and NO yellow gems, the spell can cause the game to freeze/be unresponsive.

The only way to resolve it is by force closing the game, open the game again and the bug should be fixed.

I do not know whether it’s a coincidence or not but I often have this issue/bug when I face against Giant Spider enemy.

Oh and I use Assassin when this bug occurred.

How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
Occasionally / Consistently - not quite sure but I can say for certain that it happens lots of times.
My guessed prerequisites to make the bug happens:
1. The current board does not have any Shield Gem.
2. The current board does not have any yellow gem.
3. The enemy is Giant Spider - this one may not be a requirement.

Steps to make it happen again
1. Equip Wrathful Smite spell
2. Make sure the board does not have any Shield Gem or yellow gem.
3. The enemy may have to be certain ones such as Giant Spider.
4. Cast Wrathful Smite.
5. The game will freeze - become unresponsive.

Note: I cannot provide any video for this one since it’s a bit difficult to emulate. I try to explain it in details above. Hopefully the issue is clear.
