Natural Obsolescence Discussion

Cragon18 on Casting Spells

Thanks for the feedback Chandrian and landofMordor. After reading your comments, I kind of went back to the drawing board. It has many of the same cards, but I attempted to up the energy package, mainly for Aetherworks Marvel to maximize my Rashmi triggers. I removed some of the dead cards as both of you suggested. There are still likely a few dead cards but I can work those out as I play. Keep in mind that many of the choices are for my kitchen table meta which has lots of artifacts and graveyard shenanigans, hence cards like Learn from the Past, Natural Obsolescence, and Energy Flux(mostly that card is hilarious against an artifact deck) and the like. I attempted to add some more mana ramp. I don't have many of the mana ramp staples that you suggested Chandrian since I have only been playing since OGW. I did collect as a kid, hence some of the 4th edition cards. If I like the deck I will certainly look at acquiring more of the commander staples. Thanks again and let me know if y'all like the new direction! Cheers and Happy Brewing!

Maybe some Artifact-hate for Aetherworks Marvel? I like Natural Obsolescence personally, but others swear by Appetite for the Unnatural, Manglehorn, and Release the Gremlins, so I think the pros and cons all kind of even out.

And Sweltering Suns for the Zombie hordes, maybe?

Draw well!

And maybe some more Artifact-hate for Vehicles and Aetherworks Marvel? I like Natural Obsolescence personally, but others swear by Natural State, Appetite for the Unnatural (I see the 3x in your 75), Manglehorn, and Release the Gremlins, so I think the pros and cons all kind of even out.

Draw well!

As far as artifact removal, I think Natural Obsolescence is great. It doesn't cycling or anything, but it takes care of Scrapheap Scrounger perfectly. Even with all the Marvel and Vehicle decks, I still think that artifact removal is for the sideboard.

I'm not sure about Natural State since it can't hit Aetherworks Marvel. You might consider Appetite for the Unnatural, Natural Obsolescence, or Release the Gremlins instead.

Lmaokai Thanks for all the suggestions! I will certainly play Ridgescale Tusker instead of Stomper. I was splitting Natural Obsolescence w/ Dissenter's Deliverance for Indestructible\Scrapheap Scrounger, and because I'm not really familiar w/ my LGS's standard meta. I run only three Scrounging Bandar because they're dead if there are no valid target for it's ability. Then it's just a vanilla 2\2. I will consider Nature's Way instead of Prey Upon, but I'm not sure if I will switch them out. I usually just use Prey Upon on Narnam Renegade to kill a bigger creature (Deathtouch) and trigger revolt when Narnam dies. Since I can usually swing lethal on T5, I'm worried that Evolving Wilds will slow me down, but the ramp with Renegade Rallier is undeniably great.

Your suggestions are greatly appreciated!

In return, I'll +1 one of your decks

Canopy Vista Evolving Wilds. Wilds are for revolt trigger if you draw them for you double striker and if Scrounging Bandar are as important as you seem to be making them probably throw a 4th one in in place of the Narnam Renegade. Honestly I've been wanting to find some stupid f@#$ing reason to play Arborback because it's such a good card. Nature's Way is honestly the better Prey Upon but it does take up slots for 2 drops, but seeing how standard is more about the power of 2,3,4 drops now instead of the hella nerfed 1 drops I would recommend it. 2x Natural Obsolescence is questionable compared to 4x Dissenter's Deliverance if there's a reason please do tell. Ridgescale Tusker vs Arborback Stomper idk I think that arborbacks are best in sideboard rather than mainboard and if you run them you should run at least 2 in mainboard. Now the Tusker is a different story running one mainboard just for the super f@#$ing clutch draw that ramps the hell out of the game but doesn't make the deck drastically less consistent is a good idea. Overall I would cut outburst run 2x tusker in mainboard 2x stomper in sideboard make swap if against incredible aggro decks 4x Scrounging monkey thing, take out a herbalist believe me I've tried that idea but a 2/2 vanilla isn't all that great unless your running a shitload of board pump where you need bodies to just soak for a dickload of damage. Find some place for a couple more solemn recruits and if you have an evolving wilds on a draw with 1/2 of the out that'll be quite a tempo change when they trigger. Anyway I'm going to probably build this deck a bit differently but damn I still REALLY want to find a good place for arborback. GL in your gameday dude.
