I will say, land destruction is my least favorite mechanic. I understand why it exists, and in some cases it is necissary. that said, blink-riders in standard was one of the few times that I ended up taking over a year long break from magic.


oddly, land hate wans't always (or even primarily) red. black and blue had some solid hozing abilities right at the start.

Erosion and Psychic Venom were punishing as hell for early game, and while it may not destroy the land, Phantasmal Terrain does mess with mana bases pretty well. Evil Presence and Blight helped round out Sinkhole for black. red had Stone Rain, Boil, Flashfires, and Fissure. blue had Volcanic Eruption and Acid Rain, (to counter act green's Tsunami, or Desert Twister). White had color hate for days with Drought and Conversion to name a few

oddly enough, the color pie was really into opposing color hate and ally color help at the start.

I don't think it was really until urza's block that red came to the forefront. and what a forefront it was. Wake of Destruction. as in, "see that mono colored deck over there? END THEM."

Sinkhole, Blight, and Rain of Tears are all cheap land destruction in black. All could be played quick with Dark Ritual

Impending Disaster, Raze, and Uncontrolled Infestation are great red options, though they all have a drawback.

Wasteland, Ghost Quarter, and Tectonic Edge are all lands that destroy land

Splash green and add Terravore or stay red and go with Detritivore at a higher cost, but also giving you the option to suspend and destroy land.

Blight and Choking Sands work well

PickleNutz I'm afraid not. All of the core cards are not modern legal (Strip Mine, Sinkhole, Black Vise, Blight). If I'm not mistaken I think you can make this lagacy legal by subbing 3x Strip Mines with 3 Wastelands. This is basically anti-8 rack, as it is a forcefeed varient. Youre best off going with 8-rack pox for modern my friend. Sorry, hope this helps!

Blight wouldn't really do anything in this situation. Its ability will technically trigger while Flooded Strand is being activated, but by the time Blight's trigger is put onto the stack the cost of Flooded Strand's ability has already been completely paid (including the 1 life). Blight won't go back in time and cause the ability to be "un-activated". The player will still go fetch a land.

The key thing to know is that even though a triggered ability can trigger at any time, it waits to be put onto the stack until the next time a player would get priority to take another action. In this case it means we have to wait until the player is completely finished paying for the activated ability.

How would Blight interact when enchanting something like Flooded Strand?

Would the fetch be destroyed before being sac'd? Would they still pay 1 life?

SorinSkies Unfortunatly, Modern isn't possible with this current list. Crucibles are nothing without Strip Mine, and Howling Mine, Black Vise, Sinkhole and Blight make up crucial parts of the deck. Your best bet for modern land destruction is to go for mono red, using spells like Stone Rain and burn.

Does Fatal Push have a place in this deck? Seems like revolt is possible between the Strip Mines and Blights!
