Flooremoji thanks for the comment!
I really wish I could play Wasteland in Modern. The reason I went with Memorial to War instead of Ghost Quarter was because Ghost Quarter lets the opponent search their deck for a basic land which I felt was counter intuitive to this deck destroying every land they put in play. I may sideboard in some Ghost Quarter or try playing some main board for a while and see how they go. Field of Ruin with both the mana cost and giving a basic land I don't think fits well.
I liked Stuffy Doll because it has that great combo with Star of Extinction to blow decks up for 20 life + land destroy and creature/planeswalker board clear. I had already gone down to 3 Stuffy Doll but may go down to 2 to make room for something else.
I'm gonna put some Inferno Titan in the sideboard the extra zeniths were just sorta a placeholder and I like the LoP but wanted 3. The Leyline of Punishment just allow the deck to burn through various turbo-fog decks and life-gain decks which can be huge. I think the deck needs some additional control card for the sideboard but I cant think of what. The Leyline of the Void , Boseiju, Who Shelters All , and Shattering Spree are phenomenal counter-play cards but I know the rest of the sideboard could use some improvement.

Maybe addd some Ghost Quarter / Field of Ruin in place of the memorial and/or Valakut because they work better with Crucible of Worlds . Also, I would recomend Inferno Titan over Stufy Doll. I am skeptical of the LoP and extra Zeniths in your sideboard, I would recomend droping them for more interaction. I like the idea behind the deck though.

I don’t run Field of Ruin because it’s too slow for the format right now. Also, it makes the mana too clunky in my opinion and isn’t really needed against the decks that are putting up results.

Any reason you dont run Field of Ruin like other traditional BG rock decks play?

Hey saturn999! Saw your request to check out this build.
I love the idea of rock Phyrexian Obliterator builds. The addition of a suicide black variant is also pretty cool and an interesting twist on the deck.
Not a big fan of Field of Ruin without Tireless Tracker . That being said, I don’t think tracker is what you want here with Phyrexian Obliterator . I would probably cut the 2 fields for 2 more Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . I think Dark Confidant fits the theme better and doesn’t strain your mana as much as Grim Flayer .
Removal package seems good; maybe one too many Abrupt Decay . Surgical Extraction or Nihil Spellbomb would be a good one of MB.
Vraska, Golgari Queen is reallly good in typical rock decks. Not sure how it pairs without Tireless Tracker though. It’s worth a test though.

I've used Lord of Innistrad with mixed success. I've found Sorin, Solemn Visitor does some heavy lifting by mitigating a lot of the damage we take from Bitterblossom while also giving a pseudo anthem effect. I'm also a little hesitant to swap out Gideon, Ally of Zendikar because all of his effects are relevant to our strategy.
I've actually been thinking about taking out a Godless Shrine for an Isolated Chapel for a while now to avoid unnecessary life loss, as well as swapping a Windswept Heath for a Tectonic Edge or Field of Ruin . Our matches agains tron are awful, so a mainboard option would be helpful.

Why does this have circle of protection red? That card is either terrible or win-more and there is no in-between. It's pointless to turn a 90% winrate into 92%.
Based off mtggoldfish decklists, it seems standard to be playing wrath effects right now. And with decks like Phoenix, dredge, humans, spirits, and modular affinity running about, it makes a lot of sense.
Actually as I'm learning more about these decks, I think soul sisters and martyr proc are distinct archetypes. Soul sisters plays Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant to gain tons of life early then wins with Serra Ascendant and Ajani's Pridemate . Martyr proc doesn't play either of the soul sisters and instead plays a midrange value deck that uses lifegain to make the game go long. In fact, martyr proc usually wins by an infinite value loop, but I don't recall exactly how it works (a guy at my lgs told me about it a few months ago when we played).
This deck would likely be made much more effective if you choose which you want it to be. Martyr proc is probably over $70 to be truly functional (the loop might involve Emeria, maybe?) and pieces like playsets of Field of Ruin and Ghost Quarter are really really good to have to face the general meta. But martyr proc is probably the better deck of the 2.
