This is an anecdote of limited scope, but playing in MTGO over the weekend I had my azorious signet hit by a naturalize before I got to untap with it. I was definitely taken aback, not because my rock got destroyed, I just played my brain in a jar (which got krosan gripped a couple turns later), but because that player has no idea what threats could be played by any of the other players in the next few turns.

At that point in the game, no-one knows what each others decks are capable of, and so I think hitting a rock like that is a bad play. As far as I can see there are two likely outcomes, either the player kept a sketchy hand with a good 3 or 4 drop, so hitting their rock means they may not hit their 3rd land and be screwed for a while, or you set one person back marginally for a turn and they will continue to play unabated and you wasted a card. Neither is particularly appealing to me.

I'd certainly consider hitting a T1 Sol Ring/Mana Crypt, but anything that just "+1's" your mana production including signets (land + signet = 2 mana), talismans, manalith-equivalents etc etc I'd probably leave alone, saving my artifact destruction for something relevant.

Having said that if my opponent has 4 lands and 4 "+1's" in play, I'd certainly consider blowing them all up at once (even without other targets) because they're clearly up to no good.

As an aside, your playgroup seems heavily slanted towards glass cannon combo decks. Do people run any type effects?

Lab maniac decks don't work very well without the lab maniac.
