I'll take Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip over Memorial to War. Any instants or sorceries fits in the deck? I can only think of warlord's fury.

Doubtful there will be an alternative to Desert of the Fervent due to this being, I believe the fourth time cycling has appeared in a play set and they spread them out by years. So you'll either have to go with Memorial to War or Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip to flip into Spitfire Bastion in all likelihood. Guilds of Ravnica will predominately focus on two colors each, so you won't likely find a land tapping for a mono-color. If you had a few more instants and sorceries I'd suggest Guttersnipe as well.

I'd be hesitant with Memorial to War and the Crucible of Worlds combo. That seems like a lot of mana to destroy 1 land, and then when you replay memorial it will come into play tapped. It could leave you very vulnerable. I think a good option to consider is Haphazard Bombardment. If you can control the early game well enough to get it out, you can put the 4 aim counters on your opponents lands and multiple bombardments later in the game will quickly wear down your opponents lands to nothing, especially if you recall them from the graveyard with your wizards or Mirari Conjecture leaving them in a very tough spot. Wizard's Lightning would also seem to be a good fit to help control the early game since you have ample wizards.

BEISCORE I'm thinking you can probably take out Spring, though I usually play commander and haven't played Standard in a while. You have seven basic lands, and as it currently stands, you can search for up to 6 basic lands (Grow from the Ashes allows for up to 3 land tutors and 3 copies of Spring means you can tutor 3 basic lands). If you really want to tutor basic lands, I suggest substituting Hostile Desert for Evolving Wilds (why exile lands permanently for a temporary token?). Better options may be Memorial to Folly, Memorial to Glory, or even Memorial to War.

Flooremoji I added Memorial to War to strip lands, the other Memorials have their own category.

Memorial to War can count as a stripland.
