You can play with Lantern of Insight if you think that's a good idea. Wand of Denial lets you get some choice out of what you get. Your deck looks pretty fun. +1.

Memory Plunder would be great tech for mill strategies, same as Lantern of Insight so you can see who to mill as well. Altar of the Brood is also quite funny for the consistent mill. Codex Shredder is a great tool as well as recursion engine when you want something back from your grave.

Hope that helps!

First off, You might like Lantern of Insight . Great way to know who exactly to hit.

Second, you might love Decaying Soil (with threshold) + Deathrender . ETBs For as much as you have mana. Obviously much better with infinite mana, as then you can just exile everything and win with Gonti.

You might be interested in my four color deck that does similar things with Gonti: TAKE WHAT'S MINE | Yore-Tiller EDH

You might like Lantern of Insight as a way to see what your getting, know of of it’s worth it to attack/who you should attack with just one creature, and a shuffle effect when you can’t use any of the top cards.

Lantern of Insight could do some work as a pseudo control card to prevent opponents from drawing specific cards.

Some general tribal cards like Patriarch's Bidding and Descendants' Path might be worth a look.

If you find yourself paying the 1 then Thousand-Year Elixir might be worth a look but I don't think it's necessary at all.

Neat deck! I think you want to have all 4 Cosi's Trickster, as it's one of your best payoffs. Same thing with Lantern of Insight, it's one of the better shuffle effects just because it's only 1 mana. If you play some Field of Ruin and/or Ghost Quarter in your lands, you can have a way to force your opponent to shuffle their library while having some maindeck tron/manland hate.

Personally I've been around in M:tg for almost 20 years, starting somewhere between Tempest and Stronghold. Back then, Kai Budde won the PT with the mono-Red LD deck that could power out a Wildfire around turn two after having deployed a 5/6 Dragon on t1. Nothing short of sheer beauty if you ask me.

I've never really understood why land destruction has been shunted as a "non-fun" strategy since I feel like it's just one option among many denial strategies. Take a counter-heavy deck for instance, or Modern's Lantern of Insight-builds. Both are just trying to win the game by denying their opponent a cruial part of ressources (here: spells that resolve and attack steps and/or drawing relevant cards after all).

So no, you're not wrong by any means. LD is a perfectly viable and balanced strategy if need to be. I'll admit that I've cut Armageddon and the like from my Kaalia Commander Deck to make it less competitive but if people start throwing infinite combos in my meta I'd know what I would pack.. cheers!
