Quote from Prid3 »Personally, I haven't put Obliterator in a deck in years so I'm more than ok with shaving their numbers.
Quoting Prid3 but the comment is directed more at Murx:
If you don't own them, don't go out and buy them unless you have cash to burn. The card isn't mandatory for the deck by any stretch as black has lots of good 4 drops that one can play instead. Let's not kid ourselves though, in some metas, the card just wrecks tables and in others, it just dies with little benefit (it's never ZERO benefit because it means someone used removal on your card and something else of yours has a better chance of living).
I play it because I OWN them. I play in a creature heavy meta, the card is positioned well in a devotion shell, the art and flavor are also bad-ass.
Card is definitely a meta call
