Chasmolinker if we see a Wasteland reprint in Modern Horizon you can bet you will see both Memorial to War and the Ghost Quarter disappear to make room for them. But for now I find that Memorial to War has a little bit of value because after turn 5 once I have depleted my hand it takes over and one land a turn combo's with Crucible of Worlds , which has closed out any chance of my opponent recovering from my mana lock out before.

I don’t like Memorial to War . It’s too clunky. Goblin Dark-Dwellers seems like another good possible late game star

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.

Not sure what you try to say? That combo is bad. Even if you can play additional lands, Memorial to War ETB tapped and even then it costs you 5 mana. To destroy 1 land...

I'm working on Ruric Thar, the Unbowed land destruction against Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir

Is there any reason you don't put lands under more than one category that they fit in? For example, Memorial to War could go under both Strip Lands and Memorial Lands.

Honestly I might just run with the aggro idea for now and throw in 2x Goblin Trashmaster to beef up the other goblins. Memorial to War could be good along with Field of Ruin. Otherwise I'd like to keep it mono-red for the simpler mana base. Down the road I might go for a more controlling multi-color build though.

Traditionally, Land Destruction is more control based. This looks like red aggro with land hate thrown in. Meh. That being said I would make this more of a control deck, Field of Ruin needs to be added in for sure. That can blow out dual lands, Ixalan lands, and Memorials. Memorial to War needs to be slotted in as well. This will slow things down but isn't too painful if you only put in a couple. From there you would have to add in more colors. Green for Creeping Mold, black for Spreading Rot, and white for Fall of the Thran. Lots of options for control and win cons just depends what way you want to go. I've been running a R/B control deck that does well due to all the burn and CC that's out there. It would be interesting to go Mardu and use all of the white control cards. Lots of life gain there to make Star of Extinction a more viable win con.
