I think you should add more land destruction cards. You have 5 land destruction cards, with most of them being pretty conditional, so you might not be able to do that all the time.

Stone Rain could be of some use, as is Molten Rain. Ghost Quarter could work, but I don't think the mana would work.

If you are willing to add in white, Ajani Vengeant could be decent. It would add a threat, which I think you need, as I don't see many ways to actually win.

TL;DR I think you have a cool idea, but it seems like it just isn't enough/too slow because it has too many pieces, and also a little threat light.

Good build, great band, great song! You even have Molten Rain to literally burn the Earth!

One thing to note: This shell is meant to take advantage of Goblin Dark-Dwellers, most ponza builds choose to not do this, so some of these cards will decrease the synergy that it has, but that being said.

  1. I would probably play Blood Moon over Molten Rain since the double red requirement makes it unplayable sometimes, which thereby decreases your requirements for red mana. (You lose the ability to flashback Molten Rain from your graveyard) but I think moon is more value anyway.

  2. I'd likely play Primal Command as a one of over either a Thragtusk or an Acidic Slime.

  3. Kitchen Finks would likely to the place of Feed the Clan in the sideboard (Note the countersynergy of Anger of the Gods)

@Ohthenoises Skred is my jam, been playing it for nearly 4 years now. However, I'm putting the deck on a shelf for now, as the deck is having issues with the bigger threats that come down before skred is big enough to 141. Having to 241 yourself for creatures that are far cheaper or recurable than your removal is painful for me to think that the deck is not giving enough to still be the Tier 1 Menace it once was.

As for your sideboard, I might suggest a 4th Molten Rain and move 1 Anger of the Gods over to the sideboard and +1 another one for your 15th slot, and put another Roast in the main.

Ball Lightning is awesome and you have to know how to use it, that is, play around removal. When it gets in, it wins games. Seems bad, but it works. I'll side it out if necessary G2-3.

Forked Bolt is absolutely amazing and underrated. It's fantastic against Affinity, Infect, mana dorks, Bob, and I could go on. Two-for-one removal is not something to scoff at, especially for .

I play 3x Boros Charm due to my sideboard choices and maindeck Forked Bolt. It is good, which is why it's 3x of. I go back and forth between Path and Spellbomb, pending the meta.

Kozilek's Return is there FOR pro red creatures. Etched Champion, Kor Firewalker, etc. are often sided in, especially in the mirror. The instant speed is nice, too. I'm also fond of Pyrite Spellbomb for pro red stuff.

Blood Moon is absolutely bonkers in the mirror, hence my very light splash. It makes G2 unwinnable for a lot of decks and is often unexpected out of a RDW/Burn sideboard. One could argue that Molten Rain is better, and in some scenarios it is, but putting the brakes on a deck is worthwhile.

Keldon Megaliths is a one of for the out of cards, at four life, top deck a Bolt scenario. It works as a one of.

I too broke down today and bought a box. My pulls include:
Scalding Tarn
Verdant Catacombs
Abrupt Decay
Craterhoof Behemoth
Stony Silence
Temporal Mastery
Past in Flames
2x Path to Exile
2x Inquisition of Kozilek
Serum Visions
Golgari Signet
Izzet Signet
Molten Rain
Lone Missionary

The rest consists of a lot of 50 cent foils and $1-2 rares.....I was hoping for a more epic pull like Tarmogoyf or Liliana of the Veil, but I never seem to get that lucky. It was fun to actually open a big set like this though.

TheAlexGnan thank you, and yeah you're correct on Fulminator Mage I went ahead and replaced my 2 of Molten Rain with him in the sideboard. GreenisGod we're ranked number 4 as of this morning!!!

i've seen Raven's Crime+Life from the Loam in a bunch of decks recently. abzan, this, sulati Control, and ist impressed me time and again.

well, Collective Brutality really shines in junk with Lingering Souls, maybe its a tad better there, i understand if you dont include it here.

but Fulminator Mage. in some very fringe cases Molten Rain is better because it hit Basics (the only Scenario i can think of is against rg ponza, killing an equipped Basic land). But generally speaking, fulminator is a ton better. he can swing or block if you Need him to, and of Course, Kolaghan's Command.

I would say the choice is very clear between those 2 land hate Options.
