Yeah... Other than the Desperate Ritual and Solemn Simulacrums there's nothing on that list I'd consider trading for basic lands I might not use. Sorry.

tpmains on Could Blood Sun be a ...

1 week ago

In MaRo's article today, he stated that Blood Sun is a direct answer to all of the utility lands they made in IXA and RIX.

The sets that are included in modern are based on the card frame, when WOTC moved to the modern card frame. I don't think they'll change the sets just because it's easier to visually determine legality by sight. If they really wanted to get rid of Blood Moon and the Tron lands, they would have to get rid of 8th and 9th editions. Since Mirrodin and Kamigawa were released between the two, they would have to get rid of them as well. That would screw with nearly every archetype. Examples: storm loses Desperate Ritual and Gifts Ungiven, everything loses Chalice of the Void and Aether Vial, burn loses Lava Spike.

TheDuggernaught on Rakdos Ponza

I woudl strongly suggest some Simian Spirit Guides. Having played Ponza a decent amount, I can tell you that few things are more devastating for an opponent than a turn 2 Stone Rain, Rain of Tears, Fulminator Mage or Blood Moon, and Simian Spirit Guide is probably the only way you do it in these colors. That and Desperate Ritual, and Wild Cantor. Crack the Earth can also be super good with Simian Spirit Guide. Chandra, Torch of Defiance has also been a staple for me, and I never feel bad drawing one as she can help draw into a win con, or slowly ping your opponent to death. She also helps ramp into an Inferno Titan, which while it is the best card in that deck, I can see why you omitted it. Goblin Dark-Dwellers have also been an all-star for me, and I can see Pack Rat being solid here. The new Angrath in RIX might also be a worthy include. While Rakdos might not be as explosive as Gruul, I can definitely see the merits of it in more of a midrange shell!

Cards like Desperate Ritual and Seething Song may help with mana ramp.

I'd also suggest including Seize the Day either in addition to (or in place of) Relentless Assault because of the value that having Flashback adds.

I know Seize the Day is a bit pricey for a budget deck but I think I have one that I could trade you.
