Do you think Grand Warlord Radha would make a fun land destruction deck? have a bunch of tokens and mana dorks, then run stuff like Ruination Decree of Annihilation Price of Glory Impending Disaster Wildfire Boil Ramunap Excavator Crucible of Worlds Orcish Settlers

Maybe add a few Islands to ensure you have the proper colours to cast both Stormtide Leviathan and Boil. Or possibly replace Boil with Choke, in which case you could switch out the mountains for islands and your mana base would be more consistent. Granted, it wouldn't destroy the lands, it would just keep them tapped as long as the enchantment is on the field.

Hello I_has_a_Leg, I'd be happy to take a look! It looks like you got all the usual suspects minus 1 or 2 cards. Personally Dont think Sovereign or Commander are worth the spot and would rather see 1 Kopala, 1 Kira, and some Harbingers. Harbingers are great because they keep your opponent from being able to be aggressive. Dont really like Mana Leak here either since its a very reactive spell and you want to be aggressive tapping out each turn to add to your board. I would say Dismember is better for that slot if you are looking for interaction.

For the SB to start, you have 2 Spreading Seas and 3 in the main meaning you have 5 and obviously cant. I would find room for that fourth in the main and remove the 5th. If you want extra land hate in the SB add a couple Sea's Claim. Other cards you may not have considered-

Grafdigger's Cage

Unified Will

Ceremonious Rejection

Spell Pierce

Echoing Truth

Another thing you can consider overall is moving to U/W with Wanderwine Hub and Seachrome Coast. Not only does this make you better against fringe cards like Choke or Boil but make your removal alot better with Path to Exile and gives you some of the best SB hate in modern with stuff like Rest in Peace and Stony Silence.

Hope this helps you and gives you some ideas to brew with!

Sinkhole might work well. If you had blue, I'd suggest Boomerang but 3 color decks aren't the best. Seismic Spike is also a lower cmc card (since it adds mana back to your mana pool).

One or two Dwarven Driller might work for damage or land hate.

If you have lands you don't need, Army Ants or Raze can work.

Currently the land hate seems a bit too situational for what deck you're going against (Eg. Active Volcano and Boil). I would add more fast defense so you have time to get to the land hate.

multimedia,
Thanks much! We just really love Ponza, and hope this will help others get going in the archetype.

Like we say in Step 2, this is the "average" competitive Ponza deck according to MTGdecks.net, so we don't plan to change the numbers until they change irl, based on tournaments results. For sideboard, we went with most popular sideboard cards from MTGgoldfish tournament results (though I just noticed we never mention that in the description), so there too, it'll change as more tournaments are added. It's good feedback though ... I'll tweak the description to make that more obvious. It also reminds me that now would probably be a really good time to update the main and sideboard, since the tournaments from last weekend should be included by now.

All that said, I'm with you on more Trackers in the main, especially in a Traditional or Monster list. I'm usually on a Traditional list, where I love 3-4x (here's my personal list in case you're interested). Moonbar has been on an Eldritch list lately, where we can get by with fewer.

On sideboard, while I might not recommend Boil or Choke for a "generic" meta, they're great cards for sure and I often run 1-2x Choke in my personal deck. I disagree though that Abrade and Ancient Grudge do the same thing. Sure, Abrade is a worse Lightning Bolt and a worse Ancient Grudge, but it's a superb use of limited sideboard slots. I recommend it for any meta with small Creatures or troublesome artifacts (e.g., Aether Vial, Ensnaring Bridge, Shrine of Burning Rage), and highly recommend it for a meta with both (e.g., vs. 5c Humans and Merfolk). By the way, have you looked at Guttural Response? It's another great answer for Blue decks, with the added bonus that it doesn't turn off our Spreading Seas'd lands. :-)

Thanks again and draw well!
