Destructive Tampering Discussion

Nice deck! Thanks for sharing!

Destructive Tampering might work perfectly on turn 6, if something goes wrong. Also, it's versatile.

Destructive Tampering is probably better than Blinding Flare, and neither card is very good. If you want to spend an uncommon slot on it, Gruul Charm is so much better.

Rugged Highlands is probably the best common tapland for your colors.

Your Noble plays well with token generators like Dragon Fodder and Krenko's Command. Scatter the Seeds might be worth considering as well.

Goblin Bushwhacker is insane with tokens, and most decks that run Reckless Bushwhacker should run both.

Your creatures are generally terrible. There's no other way I can put it. You're playing a bunch of 2/2's and 2/1's for 2 mana with slight upside, and 3/2's for 3 mana with the same. Kashi-Tribe Warriors stands out because it's a 5-mana 2/4. There are so many 5-drops that are better (ex. Stampeding Elk Herd). Alternatively, you could skip the 5-drops and just play more 1-drops and 2-drops (Wild Nacatl, Kird Ape, Burning-Tree Emissary stand out).

Life Goes On is a sideboard-only card that you bring in against burn decks. Never mainboard it because it's generally bad.

You describe Massive Raid as a generally solid burn spell. Outnumber does the same thing for , except it can't go to your opponent's face. And if you want to talk about burn spells that actually deserve to be called "solid", Lightning Bolt is where you should be starting.

You're a green aggro deck in Noble, therefore Rancor is probably good in your deck.

I wonder if Stampede Driver would be good in this deck.

As for Magmatic Chasm, I think its a good thing to close the game, but it could be replaced by Destructive Tampering, for it's more versatile and you can afford to pay the extra one mana as you will play that card on the later stage of the game. I would probably play 2 if you dont have a creature buff card, but if you play the Trial of Solidarity package, you might want to run cards like Crash Through

NumberX on Mono-Red Aggro (Avg. CMC 1.82)

I like Fiery Temper but I'm only using cards from Amonkhet and Kaladesh blocks, so the deck can be used and upgraded until 2018. Abrade is a good card as well, but I have Destructive Tampering in the sideboard, which has the option to remove any non-flying blockers.

Grunyarth on Bang for Buck Bushwhacker! (Budget Red AER Aggro)

Magmatic Chasm is often a better version of Destructive Tampering. I would also recommend cutting down to only 3 Kari Zev, Skyship Raiders, as she is legendary. I don't think your deck benefits enough from the artifact subtheme to be worth your time, so I would recommend swapping the Hope of Ghirapur and Inventor's Apprentice for other 1 and/or 2 drops (Village Messenger  Flip is amazing). Pia Nalaar is also somewhat weak in aggro, so you could swap her out for more 2 drops. I would also recommend swapping Aether Chaser out in favor of Thriving Grubs, as it is much better to have the 3/2 than the 2/1 and 1/1 in my opinion.

I have a very similar deck, but mine is GR, and I have to recommend that upgrade path if you want to upgrade your deck, as it gives access to Voltaic Brawler and Greenbelt Rampager

The reverse/complementary option for Fog effects is Magmatic Chasm or Destructive Tampering that shut down their blockers for a turn.

Destructive Tampering also hits Vehicles.
