Molten Rain Discussion

Well for sideboard, definitely something to deal with eldrazi and other big threats, like Roast, Dismember and Terminate (which if I'm gonna be honest should be in the main board). Definitely hand hate such as Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, Duress, Distress or Despise. Some graveyard hate like Grafdigger's Cage, Relic of Progenitus, Leyline of the Void, Nihil Spellbomb, Crypt Incursion and plenty more that I can't remember at the moment. Against Burn, the only thing I can think of off the top of my head would probably be Dragon's Claw. Against combo decks Surgical Extraction or Slaughter Games. Finally against something like Tron or B/W Control you have options like Stone Rain, Molten Rain or Rain of Tears.

I'm unsure what your local playgroup or meta is like, but these are some fine options to help board in against whatever match-ups you face. Good luck!

There is also the idea of turn two Blood Moons, which hinders Molten Rain. If I have a hand with moon, more often then not I'm playing it turn 2. That being said on turn 3 I usually have 2-3 green mana and one red available. This is generally how I start a game(barring bad hands/draws).

The point is not that it's impossible to use, it's that it's harder to use for no real benefit. Stone Rain targets basic lands wherever possible. Therefore Molten Rain would do the same thing, except harder to cast. It's not that Molten Rain is that much worse than Stone Rain, it just isn't better.

Wurmlover, Molten Rain costs 1RR, which is bad for ponza. The ideal turn 2 LD spell is cast off of 2 forests and a Utopia Sprawl, a Birds of Paradise and 2 forests, etc. Getting two red on turn 2 isn't exactly what Ponza wants. In addition, we mainly target basic lands that would produce nonred mana under a Blood Moon, so that 2 damage won't happen all that often.

I played some games online against Naya Burn yesterday. While there are starting Hands wich can race the burn Player, ist still not favorable. I dont like Obstinate Baloth, since in this deck, it will only be lifegain. Sure, there are ways for the burn guy to destroy the Bridge, but ... nah, i just dont like him. So i tried other things. While testing Outpost Siege i figuered, that the Card actually didnt do what I had in mind, when i put it into my Side. So I tried replacing them with 2 more copies of Molten Rain, and that inclusion gave me the edge against Naya burn as well, since their land Count is low. In some games, it can simply win the game on its own, since they cant cast multiple spells per turn.I think I will try the 4 copies of Molten Rain in the Side tomorrow at fnm.

Glad I could help. Now that you mention the color Red:

If you want to make anti-land as competitive as possible, I'd suggest you start with Red, and then you can splash any color, but White :)

Stone Rain, Boom/Bust and Molten Rain are all quite cheap, and very effective. (Though Boom takes a bit of build around, it's the best.)

Blood Moon and Fulminator Mage are both very, very powerful, but also somewhat expensive.

Additionally Red has Roiling Terrain, Avalanche Riders, Goblin Ruinblaster, Icefall and Detritivore can all be decent in LD decks.

Green or perhaps Blue are probably the best splashes to go for as far as secondary color goes, but Black is fine. (Just stay away from white. It has no support, and it's best card gives out free lands.)

A few suggestions :)

Simian Spirit Guide to cast a turn one Dragonmaster Outcast in addition to your Manabond or ease the double red cost of Countryside Crusher or Molten Rain.
