Natural Obsolescence Discussion

TheRedMan on Jund Energy Aggro (Budget-ish)

To get to 60 i would cut a Greenbelt Rampager and a Voltaic Brawler. They just "eat" the energy but they do not give any. I would probably maindeck Highspire Infusion instead of Blossoming Defense because the infusion is more offensive and gives energy. As for the Sideboard: you've managed to include BLACK. Therefore i recommend "bad" black cards that help you destroy the enemy such as Ruinous Path or Lost Legacy. Especially the last one is a "killer". Double black could be but should be no problem. Aethersphere Harvester as "airforce" fits the energy theme well. For artifact removal i prefer Natural State because it is cheap and gets rid of nearly every artifact or enchantment that is played. For Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger i prefer Natural Obsolescence. REMOVAL: you have the push and the lightning => no need for shock or prey upon. prey upon needs creatures. Think of the worst case: no creatures = no removal. ARTIFACT/ENCHANTMENT: i prefer destructive tampering because it "clears the road" for your creatures as well. This is mor aggressive than lifegain by appetite. The standard enchantments can be cleared by natural state. QUESTION: what do you think about Arlinn Kord  Flip as a sideboard option?

Looks good. I would personally go up to the full play set of Lambholt Pacifist  Flip because a turn 2 Lambholt Pacifist  Flip into either a turn 3 thali's lieutenant, Always Watching , Gryff's Boon, or Rishkar, Peema Renegade is very strong. Also, because you don't have anything to ramp into, I believe that Always Watching is probably stronger than Rishkar, Peema Renegade in this particular build. Have you thought about 2 Thalia, Heretic Cathar and 1 more Always Watching instead of Rishkar? Rishkar is a little awkward without the tribal synergy.

Also, powerhouse cards to consider are Blossoming Defense. It can blank an opponent's removal spell as well as chip in for extra damage. I also think that Natural Obsolescence is great in the meta game right now. Tireless Tracker would be another card that could take Rishkar's slot in this deck. If left unchecked, Tracker can win you the game on it's own as well as giving you that late game advantage/mana sink.

Erutan9 The Aether Poisoners have worked well so far, threatening as a deathtouch blocker, and summoning servos for me (and staying charged longer with Glimmer of Genius. If i took them out, what would be a good replacement? Maybe take them out and a Marionette Master for a playset of Walking Ballistas?

Wendigo4481 I wasn't too impressed by Heroic Intervention or Natural Obsolescence but Underhanded Designs could be promising... I will look into it. And ideas of what to pull for it?

Didley on [AER] Grixis Control

I like the deck. It's very similar to my deck: [AER Standard] Grixis Control.

With the explosion of Temur Tower decks, I brewed my deck up as Grixis Towers. However, during playtesting I ended up trying out Trail of Evidence. It was so good, I ended up dropping Dynavolt Tower entirely and have been playing around with 2-3 Trail of Evidence main board.

Except for Harnessed Lightning and Glimmer of Genius, each card you cast with a Dynavolt Tower in Play is essentially 1 point of damage (takes 3 spells to get enough energy for one activation). Compare that to a deck with Trail of Evidence, which is getting a clue for EVERY instant/sorcery they cast.

I have not lost to a Dynavolt Tower deck yet. They have no small creatures to kill with their towers and having to cast three spells to do three damage to your opponent is not efficient at all. Also, players are running Natural Obsolescence and Release the Gremlins; neither of which can target Trail of Evidence.

If I land a Trail of Evidence on Turn 5, I typically create between 4 and 10 clues in the next 5 or 6 turns, depending on the match-up.

If you decide to give it a try, let me know what your experience is.

beware Temur Tower, get some Natural Obsolescence, they ruin tower and scrapheap scrounger.

If you haven't watched, Victor Silva's Temur Tower won GP Porto Alegro today.

Firetra on Poor Mans Cat Combo

I would honestly take out Fairgrounds Warden in favor for Stasis Snare. It is just better in almost all ways. sure it doesn't trigger off of Ninth Bridge Patrol, but the upsides more than make up for that loss. First you get removal of creatures on a stick since it has Flash. Second, since it has flash it can disrupt the normal cat combo and also grab any Heart of Kiran when they activate it (Or Gideon if they +1 him). And since there isn't as much enchantment removal as there is artifact removal, you just make it out on top for this switch. Speaking of artifacts, put in Fragmentize or Natural Obsolescence into the sideboard for those Mardu Vehicle matchups.

a better choice you might want to consider is Natural Obsolescence it hits all artifact targets including the gearhulks!
