Only Ancient Ziggurat prevents any of them from being cast. BUUUTTT... If you must go with humans you only have a couple options Avalanche Riders and Barbarian Riftcutter for Ghost Quarter type lands and my favorite High Priest of Penance for Blood Moon

If you want to destroy lands, you can try Avalanche Riders, Detritivore, and Structural Distortion.

Switch out Smash to Smithereens for Vandalblast.

And if you plan to avoid instant speed, you can include Price of Glory to deter others.

You can also curb away from mono-red in LD. There are land destruction effects in both green and black, and a blue/red LD is devastating. Or you can build a fun, trashy deck like I did.

Always a big fan of seeing another Alesha deck. Have you considered the Alesha classic of Avalanche Riders?

Fulminator Mage is a very good suggestion, a obvious powerhouse. It shows the sheer number of options for Alesha that such a staple card is easily overlooked. I will consider it.

I am not sure what I would cut for Fulminator, it is a strong hate card (Avalanche Riders is similar). I don't think my playgroup needs more land destruction, even if just targeted and not mass LD. And it also paints a huge target on your back. So for now I will put it in the side/suggestion-board

But my next buy is likely Phyrexian Tower, which I find quite affordable in my region. I will cut the fifth Swamp for it. The basic land count in my build is quite high, especially for a deck without green. But I never really have fixing issues, so I don't want to further mess with my mana base. (no filterlands or such, which I find way too expensive money-wise for the tiny amount of fixing they add)

So in the near future:

Swamp > Phyrexian Tower

pretty neat deck, may I suggest Avalanche Riders is a cool way to blow up some lands.

Thought Gorger, Avalanche Riders, Solemn Simulacrum, Mindclaw Shaman (maybe you had him I don't remember), Angel of Invention, Ravos, Soultender, Archetype of Finality all seem like must haves.

I'm 70% built. Have finished the deck but have most of it sleeved already.
