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.

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.
