Natural Obsolescence Discussion

Sorry for bombarding you with comments, but I keep getting thoughts, possibly try Complete Disregard over Grasp of Darkness, Blessed Alliance and Anguished Unmaking are possible if you splash white. The Oath of Ajani beats out nissa in mana for the same affect. Natural Obsolescence might be good in the side, and Monstrous Onslaught could also be a nice finisher which can also be hit of Rishkar's Expertise.

Thanks! That's always helpful, to see what you saw while building the deck, and see if there's anything else you pinpointed as strong along the way. Admittedly, this pool isn't the greatest, but one thing I really like about prereleases is you can make some really amazing decks out of what seems like the most hopeless pile.
I agree with your Red for sure...Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, Quicksmith Rebel, and Sweatworks Brawler are all strong pulls pushing you into the color, and the removal in Shock, Chandra's Revolution, and Destructive Tampering only help.
I see the appeal in the Black for more removal and evasion (and honestly, I did the same in my prerelease pool, after all...), but I feel like with the card pool you have, a bit of menace and Unlicensed Disintegration is not really enough to pull me in.
I think I would have attempted Green. Between providing energy to power your Territorial Gorger, and a Riparian Tiger (which, honestly, is better than most of the rares you can get out of the prerelease packs), those make for an excellent high end that can't be accidentally stymied by an artifact-light deck (as my Fen Hauler often was). Aside from all the energy cards, Scrounging Bandar is surprisingly good. I don't know how much use you got out of your vehicles in practice, but I feel like the Daredevil Dragster is good enough to include as well, if for nothing other than eliminating a few chumps and drawing some cards, maybe in place of the Irontread Crusher, depending on how many 3-power creatures you ended up with. Natural Obsolescence is actually worth considering in this format, given how common artifacts are.
One thing to look at in upcoming prereleases is the potential for a 3-color deck/a color splash. That depends on if there are a.) multicolor lands (none in this set) and b) other fixing (in this set Prophetic Prism and Renegade Map) in your pool. But here, we didn't really have that opportunity.

Love the start. Lightning Runner is a really cool and fun looking card. I don't think it's better than Verdurous Gearhulk here. Gearhulk is virtually unconditional and works alongside Constrictor very well.
Haven't played Evolving Wilds in junction with Revolt mechanics. So I don't want to put too much into it. But I don't think it's a good idea. Just seems too cumbersome and clunky. Still if it works--great. I'd lean more on some Hissing Quagmire. Nice mana sink to help with mana flood, imo.
Voltaic Brawler would seem better here than Servant of the Conduit. Hard to say. Both are good at what they do. Brawler would be more mana intensive, however. But trying a couple copies might be worth it.
