xyr0s That makes sense. I feel like Opt is better because it is an instant which lets me really do what I want. Thanks for all the help with it!! This is a lot different from the start. How does Saheeli Rai work in this deck? It has a scry for +1, and I could copy a Torrential Gearhulk for -2, giving more value to its grave recursion. I'm looking forward to playing it, not looking forward to buying the land base and some other cards.

For anti-land, would something like Molten Rain or Ark of Blight?

Pyramids still stops Stone Rain from happening, in the oracle text the key word is "Instead", making the effect of removing all damage from the land a replacement effect that replaces the destruction of the land. So Pyramids still stops Demolish, Sinkhole, Creeping Mold, Armageddon, Erosion, Ark of Blight, or Strip Mine. Also, speaking of which, maybe do an article on Land Destruction? How it started off as Black and White, then shifted into Red and Green, with blue randomly getting Erosion and Annex.

Wow, you would make a mono-red no fun allowed deck haha.Avalanche Riders, Coercive Portal, Ark of Blight, Boom/Bust, Detritivore, Dwarven Blastminer, Dwarven Driller, any of these look good to you?

And I never did see the Blood Moon come up. It may have changed things, but I managed to get Marit Lage thawed before 3 mana in Slaver's Moon. Perhaps run some Lotus Petals to speed things up at the beginning and get those locks out asap. Not sure what exactly you'd wanna cut to get them in. Winter Orb could potentially lock you down as much as your opponent so possibly that? Ark of Blight could be useful in destroying a land, but maybe a Wasteland in it's place just for speed could be useful? It does tap for colorless, so it wouldn't be a waste in the mana department for your artifacts either.

I played three, but managed to get Marit Lage out in each. It may be necessary to include just a little more mana production to get those 3 mana costing spells out in time as in each game I got stuck with 2 lands and my the time I got 3, it was too late. Chalice of the Void and Trinisphere worked wonders though as far as delay. That 3 mana cost on the activated ability of Ark of Blight killed its effectiveness unfortunately.
