Crumble to Dust Discussion

I guess I'll start with silly pride and say I totally understand. I try to build off the beaten path a lot and don't see many results for that reason. Check out some of the decks I upload over time and you would understand. One of my current modern decks (not on here is a mono green land destruction/ramp deck that tries to cast an early Tooth and Nail.

As far as Awakening of Vitu-Ghazi I am not quite a big fan since it could die to 1 cost spells such as Fatal Push or Path to Exile. If you're looking to push the land theme of things, there is Rude Awakening. Another card to consider for the deck would be Crumble to Dust.

Lastly thanks for simplifying your decklist.


I completely agree with your statement on needing to tune a list to your local meta. I do want to ask your thoughts on the decks that run Liquidmetal coating and copies of Karn, the Great Creator or Ancient Grudge as an alternate way of controlling lands and if it would be something worth considering? The karn plan could give an additional way to influence the game with sideboard slots for things like Trinisphere or even Ensnaring Bridge.

Hi saluma and thanks for the feedback. I dedicated 2 slots to Anti Tron because it is one of the worst matchups of Cruel Control. With the right Side Combo of Cards and the right timing to resolve Crumble to Dust it can win you the match. I tried Fulminator Mage and Extirpate but you must have both cards in your hand to exile one Tron Land. Crumble to Dust does for one extra mana. I would like to hear your recomendation if you have something different to tell me.

Im not up to date with the modern metagame so I have to ask you, in what situation is Crumble to Dust good? It seems... I dont know mediocre or to expensive... The only matchup I can think this card can be played vs is tron and there its one turn to late... But as I said Im not up to date in modern so I could be wrong. Would Love to hear your reasoning. Rest of the deck is really worth a big fat +1!

VaultSkirge: unfortunately, stuff like Anger of the Gods would kill some of my own creatures as well.

pizzagod13: Crumble to Dust does pretty much force tron players to scoop, but unfortunately thats the only deck its useful against, and i'm not sure its worth the sideboard space when i already have tons of other mainboard land destruction spells. Surgical Extraction is quite good, but also $50. i'm confused why so many people keep mentioning that "some decks don't need a lot of lands" as if thats a point "against" land destruction, when really its in land destructions favor. if a deck doesn't need many lands, it also won't "have" many lands. this greatly increases the chances that i'll have more LD spells than they have lands, in which case i win. Ghost Quarter is good, but i don't think i can afford lands that don't produce colored mana. i need to ensure i get forests for Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl , and also have double red for Pillage . otherwise i'd run a Kessig Wolf Run or 2.

What about Crumble to Dust ? Gets rid of all of their Tron lands of one type. They can never again get tron

Another way to get some value off of your Zubera idea is to run 3 or 4 Viscera Seer or even Hidden Stockpile for fun. Lets you scry and get some extra value over time. However, in terms of your sideboard there's a few options you can go with... I think the most broad I'll put below with small explanations and then it can be altered as needed? Maybe?

4x Leyline of the Void --> "Best" graveyard hate since it can come down turn zero and help to hose out dredge, all versions of Phoenix decks while also slowing down a few other strategies.

2x Destructive Revelry --> The card is good, however, not needed as a 4 of. Leyline of Sanctity isn't played nearly as much, Leyline of the Void is awkward to bring in against you since you still get Zubera value from the death trigger and Rest in Peace is the same. Other key artifacts or enchantments you can try to go around/under due to smaller creatures being annoying.

2x Damping Sphere --> Slows down both tron and storm and just helps for the most part...

4x Death's Shadow --> Honestly, I don't know if I like this selection but it does give you another angle of attack... Speaking of angles, Gurmag Angler may also be worth considering due to the nature of Greater Gargadon doing his thing. May also want to consider other wincons here in split numbers ( Liliana of the Veil , Liliana, the Last Hope , Kaya, Orzhov Usurper , Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet etc.)

3x Path to Exile --> Kill it, kill it dead.

This is 15, and it should be broad enough to help in several match ups, but it can also be tuned to be better/stronger for what you need. I feel that the options here are easy enough to understand when you'd bring them in and makes choices easy when playing against opponents, however, I also threw this together real quick before work so I'm sure I missed a few things. Either way, this gives an idea of a few cards to look into. Other options include Surgical Extraction , Crumble to Dust , Fulminator Mage , Thoughtseize , Nihil Spellbomb and it can just keep on going.... Rakdos Charm is a personal favorite of mine for Sideboards in X decks!

TheLoneDart: I definitely wanted the deck to have more traditional LD like that, but as it came together I ran out of space to run very many, so I settled for the Crumble to Dust s. This is just my first pass at the deck, so as I refine hopefully I can fit at least some Stone Rain s in. Molten Rain having double red might be too hard to cast.

I think that removing Olivia for the 3rd captain would be a good idea.

I think the madness element of the deck might be too cute, however, I haven't yet experimented much with it outside of running Fiery Temper in my original izzet phoenix brews... Leave it in for now, maybe it's something to look at down the line. It can definitely be efficient (especially when against Liliana of the Veil or if you add her yourself) but it may not be relevant enough to keep in. Try for a few weeks, see how you feel about it. I think my biggest question for your madness question is do you feel you've had enough opportunities to discard those cards?

If you really do like the madness theme, I do highly recommend Bloodhall Priest . That's probably my favorite madness card from shadows, but I'm, also biased towards it!!

As for your local meta, if tron is an issue than I do highly recommend adding in either Fulminator Mage or Crumble to Dust as was said above. I know you already have the 2 Damping Sphere to help against tron, but they may not be enough. For your deck, I'd recommend Fulminator Mage since it can be aggressive and swing but also whacks any land. Can be Colonnade , a Tron Piece or any other utility land for that matter. Maybe remove the Settle the Wreckage for them.
