Kryptnyt and I must have some spiritual connection or something.

This is my removal of choice. I'm not saying that it is better than Naturalize. I just like it a lot. I still need one more copy...

P.S. If your opponent's life gain causes you to lose, then you have quite the story to tell.

Who cares about giving the opponent life when I have control of the board and an infect deck, especially in PDC.

This is nuts in EDH.

If you run combo, 4 life is nothing.
If you run lockdown, 4 life is nothing.
If your winning condition is 21 commander dmg, 4 life is nothing.
And if you kill opponent by attacking, 4 more is nothing compared to 40 life.

(Card Rating: 4.0) The ability to instantly destroy an enchantment or artifact for the cost of only one green mana is exceedingly powerful. This means that you can probably still cast a 2 or 3 mana creature and this spell without having to waste a turn utilizing 2 mana to cast Naturalize. Also, this card's low mana cost is extremely effecient to stop a Smokestack/Tangle Wire lock. With the ability to destroy one of your own artifacts or enchantments in order to gain life, the versatility of this card broadens. This card is often very potent to hinder your opponent's strategy.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned this yet but, it's practically a better Crumble.

Edit: Crap, how could I miss the blatant "or Enchantment"? Disregard what I just said... Instead, think about how Oxidize is better than crumble.

In vintage, you can hit your own Mana Crypt to put yourself just out of reach of that would-have-been-lethal Tendrils. Then attack with Elvish Spirit Guide for the win 9 turns later.
You can also use it to fuel necropotence for 4 more cards to draw at the price of an off-color mox

Hatching Plans.

Does work well as a cheaper Naturalize when used with Kavu Predator.

Turn one: Destroy your borderpost. Feels good.

This will be awesome in Vintage and Legacy. Remember Swords to Plowshares? This is the Naturalize Version.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
