no. an idea that trumps all is Countryside Crusher. That or Storm Crow. not even kidding on the former

sure it can be beaten like any deck, but the point is, you won't have just this and Islands, you'll have something like this deck here, counters and stuff to slow your opponent down. stuff to slow down aggro or what have you and then lay it down turn 5, and then barring the fairly unlikely chance of them having enchantment destruction between your turn 5 and 6 (if they are even packing any of that since this is not modern), you just auto win. in any other format its not a big deal since you have to draw it, but when you can just play the exact card needed to auto win as soon as you have the mana, and your opponent can't stop it unless they happen to be running something that can get rid of it, yeah its just not fun to play against.

Countryside Crusher isn't that bad since he can be killed or dealt with much easier and in every color. Battle of Wits is like, not playing blue? not running green or white enchantment hate (i.e. black or red)?? too bad, you lose!!! yeah, its just pretty dumb. if noble really ends up taking off, i just hope i don't see more than a couple of these decks, which granted i probably won't but...

I just playtested. Started with Countryside Crusher in my opening hand. Turn 3 I drew Fatal Frenzy. Then I played the Crusher and decked myself the next turn.

So that's a thing.

For a land destruction deck, you aren't doing much to upset your opponent's mana base. Pillage, Seismic Spike, Ruination (depending on what lands you see often), Molten Rain, and Wildfire are all good options.
Instead of reworking the deck to include those, I think a couple Bazaar Traders would be good. You have ways around Aggressive Mining, your opponent probably doesn't. Throw this their way, and they're boned.
It seems this deck would have lots of problems against decks that ran even a few creatures that had flying or were 3/3 or bigger. I don't see many options to get rid of threats. If your opponent no longer has to tap land to play anything, and you can't stop their attackers, what are your options? Right now, relying on Ankh of Mishra and Zo-Zu doesn't leave you in control of how much damage your opponent takes, or even if they take damage at all. Countryside Crusher, Detritivore, Dwarven Driller, Dwarven Blastminer, Goblin Razerunners, Invader Parasite, Keldon Firebombers, Shivan Wumpus are all creatures that either destroy lands, or benefit from destroyed lands.
Hope you find some of these suggestions useful. Good luck!

Read the bottom text block on Emrakul :)

Lily I would include but $$$ :(

I used to run Countryside Crusher, but was either too slow or win-more. Either they killed him before anything useful happened (because they'll have all their removal chilling in hand due to my lack of dudes) or I would get him to 30/30 but already be going off with Seismic Assault. Not a bad inclusion, just never worked for me.

Life from the Loam, Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded, Flame Jab, wurm harvest, Crucible of Worlds, Countryside Crusher, some Mulch-like effects, and you have yourself a halfway decent RG Loam deck.

Hey, nice deck! Have you considered Scapeshift? It has great sinergy with Countryside Crusher and Knight of the Reliquary.
