euananddalesaccount on mono red land destruction

pretty neat deck. I'm not so into the Molten Rain/Roiling Terrain parts, since this is symmetrical land destruction and 12 mountains, but apart from that, it's pretty cool.

I'm a bit iffy about the Burning-Tree Emissaries, even if they are a generally good threat under the circumstances, and Insolent Neonates seem iffy as well, to me. Maybe go down a couple, and up a couple of Halberdiers. Manamorphose seems pretty cool, but it doesn't seem to fit in to the deck snugly. You could try maybe another couple of Land, and another Halberdier.

I may be one of the folks that you seriously dislike, as I am an eldrazi tron player. I was once a home brewer and got tired of losing to the super tiered decks at my LGS. losing to eldrazi tron was the last straw for me. I began to adopt the "cant beat em join em" mentality. so I apologize for being one of the contributing factors to your hatred for the format. To save myself, I don't run karn in my list so, I guess ive got that going for me. Has your opinion changed at all since the unbanning of BBE? have you considered playing a different kind of deck? it seems to me that you would be a hell of a ponza player, im sure there is nothing such as satisfying as dropping a Blood Moon or Molten Rain right as your opponent has put his pieces together. or if you want interaction, why not give grixis control a shot? super interactive and it seems fun to play.

Maybee go for Molten Rain over Stone Rain.

If you check MTGGoldfish on youtube, Seth played a ponza deck with BBE in his last Stream and made a ~20min highlights video. The deck is very similar to yours, but you might still find some inspiration.

All in all I don't thing ponza can get much better than what you have. I would definately be very scared playing vs this.

Molten Rain is better than Ghost Quarter for you. Also Anger of the Gods is better than Pyroclasm as it is more useful in different situations. Finally Hellspark Elemental is better than Lightning Strike.

Following up on your most recent thread from over on Reddit ...

So, card advantage in is tricky ... Bob is the usual answer, but he's SUPER-pricey, so almost certainly not what you're looking for. Maybe some combo of Phyrexian Arena, Sign in Blood, Faithless Looting, or Abbot of Keral Keep?

And frankly, I don't know the best way to approach the manabase ... the challenge of reliably getting on Turn 1 (for Inquisition of Kozilek) and then on Turn 2 or 3 (for Molten Rain) is TOUGH. It seems like Fastlands would be great, but the price on Blackcleave Cliffs is pretty insane. Graven Cairns or Sulfurous Springs, maybe?

Finally, I have no idea if they're actually any good, but it seems like some Demigod of Revenge might be fun in the deck.

Good luck (and good skill) with the brew!

Went 2-2 with RB Hollow One but had the most bananas play ever!

Lost to Affinity. First time to play Affinity and I had several play errors. Felt winnable. Should have boarded in Grim Lavamancer.

Lost to Eldrazi Tron. Bad draws. Certainly winnable.

Beat Ponza. He hit BBE into Molten Rain which was super hot but I got the last laugh. Literally. Game 3 I mulligan to 5. I kept a no lander. Turn 1 Street Wraith into land, play land, tap and play Burning Inquiry. Two Hollow One hit the board and one Flamewake Phoenix in the Graveyard. Turn 2 swing for 10! We laughed, he scooped. Good game.

Game 4 was a bye but playing this deck is always fun!

Seems like an overall nice list, but a card i can never recommend enough is Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip. In my experience, the card has been extremely good in grindy matchups, and it makes for some quite needed spot removal (without the resources that the Hazoret death machine needs to work). I'd also cut the Mwonvuli Acid-Moss to 2x, and if you find that you need more LD you could try out Molten Rain, which seems to work pretty damn well with BBE. How has Hazoret been working out for you? I was considering it but i can't figure out if it has more to offer than the other 4-mana options.

Looks very solid!

Really, the only issue I see is that until you get all 8-9x fetches, you will have a harder time casting Double-Red spells. Here's the math:

Anger of the Gods is rarely needed on Turn 2, but depending on when you get your Fetches, you might consider running another value 3-drop over the Molten Rains.

It's a similar issue, though less dramatic, with Chandra, Torch of Defiance. If you already have her, cool. But if not, you might want to hold off a while. Especially since her price will drop this summer and then fall off a cliff in the fall when she rotates out of Standard.

Enjoy the deck!
