Crack the Earth Discussion

Mulugruntz on Invincible?

Our permanents are sacrifice-able so, can be destroyed by cards that don't target the player like Cataclysm Braids, Cabal Minion, Crack the Earth, a suspended Curse of the Cabal or Living End, or Keldon Twilight.

It seems that the Phyrexian Revokers can be killed with Outbreak. However, Sickening Shoal and Snapback cannot be played if Mycosynth Lattice is on the table.

If it's land destruction it's too mean. Still, it could be meaner... Maybe Molten Rain instead of Pillage and Avalanche Riders instead of Cosmic Larva; you don't have to win big if your deck is this oppressive. I would also consider Akki Blizzard-Herder and Crack the Earth (If you get rid of the Cosmic Larva you can free up some land slots and add some more gas to keep up the pressure. If you want it to feel a little less one-sided you could consider Steam Vines and Shivan Wumpus, but it would be, strictly speaking, worse. This seems like a cool, all or nothing deck. Should be fun to play every once-in-a-while.

I have been fantasizing about the possibility of turn 1 Simian Spirit Guide into Crack the Earth before playing a land.

Deus of Calamity could make a solid finisher if you're not trying to mill them out to win.

Red also lacks ways to deal with Hexproof beyond the very unlikely Crack the Earth.

I used to do something like this. If you are on the draw and run Simian Spirit Guides; you add a red before you play your first land, the Crack the Earth, then land for turn.

Thank you so much for the upvote! and I really like Crack the Earth. I am definitely going to work that in somehow.

Cinder Glade would help the land a bit and is budget, also Crack the Earth might help hurt your opponent more than you.

lol, Crack the Earth is awesome! I didn't even remember that card!

It's a more versatile Innocent Blood, and seems better than Misguided Rage. If you were thinking Rakdos, I'd say Innocent Blood because it will also trigger Mortician Beetle. Since you're thinking Gruul, then Crack the Earth obviously, and maybe you could make use of things like Blisterpod, Goblin Arsonist or Bequeathal.

Also: Rancor is also excellent in Brian decks because you can enchant a chump, sac the chump, and then re-use Rancor on Bloodbriar or whatever else helps you win. All for a single a pop.
