Madaraximundar on R/W/U Land Destruction - Sadists Need Decks Too!

I appreciate the comment XD Roiling Terrain is already in here, and Volcanic Offering and Keldon Firebombers were removed for better alternatives.

As for the rest: Tremble, Thoughts of Ruin, and Burning Sands are a no because they backlash on me too much and because they sacrifice it. Which means they choose the land. Not good if I'm aiming to knock out their dual lands first. Looking for more destroy, as I can target what I want AND destroy doesn't go through my indestructible cards while sacrifice does.

Detritivore is an interesting hitter who would go well as a situational based on the land composition of my opponent. So that will stay a maybe.

I am glad to see that Price of Glory is in the deck. Stoneshaker Shaman is it's less know cousin.

Otherwise, I'm no expert in land destruction. But, I would suggest Roiling Terrain and Volcanic Offering.

Detritivore is also a worthwhile creature if you suspend it, cant be hosed by control magic.

Keldon Firebombers would be funny. As long as you can still tap the 3 lands, Numot can still tap them to smash 2 of your opponents 3 lands.

Tremble and Thoughts of Ruin continue the land sac theme.

Burning Sands is the final suggestion I have. Its pretty nasty.

It looks brutal though!!

Soltari Visionary can destroy enchantments but if you're afraid of Sphinx's Tutelage note that it requires a target. Aegis of the Gods, Orbs of Warding, Witchbane Orb or Ivory Mask gives YOU hexproof (there is another white enchantment designed for 2 headed giant that does the same thing but i forgot the name).

Beloved Chaplain or Commander Eesha are sweet defenders but damn they kick in HARD with Concerted Effort or Burning Sands

Not really, with the the right enchantments or other wise in my hand it doesnt seem much of a problem. For example Burning Sands + No Mercy = No one attacking you any time soon.

Well it opens up the Rakdos suite to things like Rain of Gore, Havoc Festival, Everlasting Torment, ect. And black offers more pain via Bloodchief Ascension, Painful Quandary and land based pain/destruction via Desolation/Polluted Bonds. Evens adds in draw based hate with Underworld Dreams and Fate Unraveler.

I'm still planning on running the "damned if you do, damned if you don't" theme with incremental damage like with Zo-zu but offers even more pain. Still planning on running Burning Sands as with Mogis it synergizes even better. Ditto with Manabarbs, Burning Earth. I might just cut back on the LD creatures mostly. Still heavily enchantment focused and creature light. Oh and No Mercy, love that thing lol.

I guess I'm torn.
