There's only one printing of Obliterator, sadly. so here's the comments I couldn't fit before:

"Dr. Octo-gona-m***r-F***K'N OCTOPUS, BLAAAARRGGHHH!!!!!!!!''

Episode 1 of the best card game based cartoon ever:
Yugi: Phyrexia, OBLITERATE!
Kaiba: FUUUUUU-!

@ultratog1028: Sure. I always love losing all my lands to a random Lightning Bolt that they have four turns to draw and then I immediately lose the game. Magic is such fun when that happens.

This card is really too much of a gamble to use in the main deck. I played with a friends phyrexian deck earlier (loved it by the way, I'm definitely a black mage) and I used the totem, in combination with the colossus and one other creature to put them at an ultimatum (they only had 3 creatures to block with), they decided to pump one of their 1/1s to a 4/4 and block the negator, i still connected with 9 total damage but ended up sacrificing the negator and 3 swamps which hurt me in the long run. I might have won if I hadn't lost those lands

I honestly like this card, and I imagine it was a powerhouse against control/combo decks back in the day. 10 total p/t for 3 mana, and in a color that can ritual the monstrosity out on the first turn. But this dude needs to stay in the sideboard until it's safe to come out. He's just too risky nowadays.

Black is about power for a price. The price in this instance however, is too expensive compared to the power. If it had said "none-land permanents" I could understand it, but this is just too suicidal. Could maybe work in my sacrifice deck, but the risk of having to sac a lot of lands and creatures is just too great. I'm much more into abyssal persecutor than this. Maybe bazar trader and then nuke or something?

The new art is lacking compared to the old version

This guy has won me so many games.

Unfortunately, he has lost me far more than he has won, so they hide in the sideboard now until i'm sure it's safe for them to come out ;p

AXER: Even better with two Priests of Gix. That way you have something to feed to the inevitable Shock.

This card might work in a deck that's built around keeping it safe, but I like to use it in my black/red deck. I give away the Negator with Bazaar Trader and start casting burn spells.

Phyrexian Canceller seems to do it better in New Phyrexia.

Back in the day he may have ran roughshod over the metagame but I don't know if that's enough to really qualify him as a mythic for his reprint, not to mention being on the front of a duel deck's packaging.
