Destroy target creature. If a white creature is put into a graveyard this way, Cinder Cloud deals damage to that creature's controller equal to the creature's power.

Cinder Cloud Discussion

@ticked-off-squirrel: Ah, you're right. As you said, in your example it's not dealing damage, but there are some examples (some of which I played myself very enthusiastically, such as Agonizing Demise).
Whether it's lethal damage or a destroy effect destroying the creature actually makes a difference, which is something I initially overlooked and koylucumert therefore might be interested in: For example, if you're at 2 life, control an Exquisite Archangel and your opponent casts Cinder Cloud, your Angel will be destroyed (as in put in the graveyard by the effect, not by SBAs), then deal 5 damage to you. There is no Angel on the battlefield anymore at the time the damage is dealt, so it's replacement effect won't work and you will end up at -3 life.

Quick list of potential cards off the top of my head that I didn't see in your list. More specific advice can be given if you clarify where you want to go with the deck. Seems like you kind of want to go the "turn lots of stuff sideways" route?
