Molten Rain Discussion

sylvannos on Splashing with Fire

I would concur with the others about your sideboard. Soulfire Grand Master really isn't what you want against aggro or in the mirror. Kor Firewalkers backed up by Path to Exile to deal with your opponents' Kor Firewalkers is where you want to go. You also want Path to Exile so you don't just scoop to a Wurmcoil Engine on turn 3 from a Tron player.

I'd probably change your sideboard to look something like:

1x Anger of the Gods
2x Deflecting Palm
4x Destructive Revelry
2x Exquisite Firecraft/Wear / Tear/Rest in Peace/Molten Rain/Sudden Shock/Relic of Progenitus
3x Kor Firewalker
3x Path to Exile

The other thing is, if you're not playing Tribal Flames, there's no reason to play a 4th. color for Bump in the Night. Lose those and go up to 4 Skullcracks and 4 Searing Blaze in the main.

You also don't want basic Forest because of how hungry your deck is for red mana. With Bump in the Night gone, you can cut your black sources and the Forest for additional Mountains or fetch lands.

If you are wanting to build up a Tribal Flames list, you play black for Bump in the Night and blue for Geist of Saint Traft. I play Tribal Zoo myself with Siege Rhino, Noble Hierarch, Tarmogoyf, and Wild Nacatl. I'll post my deck here if you want or you can find it in my profile.

Have you considered Crumble to Dust in the sideboard as opposed to Molten Rain? It single-handedly destroys their mana base rather than allowing them the chance to recover. Otherwise, this is a very cool list. I might have to give it a try sometime!

sylvannos on Budget Black Land Destruction Help

Hmmm...$100 is pretty low. That means no Life from the Loam, Fulminator Mage, or even dual lands.

Are you set on keeping this mono-black? There's a lot to be gained from adding red or green, not just because of expensive cards. Green gives you ramp so you can turn 2 Rain of Tears and work your way up to a Death Cloud. Red gives you more land destruction (specifically Molten Rain and Avalanche Riders), plus the absolutely insane Goblin Dark-Dwellers.

If you're staying mono-black, I'd suggest building around Smallpox. You can get your opponent low with Abyssal Persecutor, then finish out the game when it gets sacrificed. It also creates a lot of value when your opponent has to sacrifice a creature.

Smallpox gets even more value when you couple it with Solemn Simulacrum and Filigree Familiar.

Some other cards to consider:

Also check out Budget Magic over at MtG Goldfish. Here is a deck built around Death Cloud that's actually pretty good from what I've seen at my local shop. And here is R/G Land Destruction to give you some more ideas.

I would run more single target land destruction just to single out colors, so yo can cast multiple lands per tern with your lands. I would also run land destruction that deals damage in case you are too slow whith land destruction and they get some creatures out, and also to hurry up the game and hopefully finish it. I would suggest Pain/Suffering, Choking Sands, Lava Blister, Molten Rain, Cryoclasm, Dwarven Blastminer, Dwarven Miner, Rancid Earth, Shivan Harvest, Keldon Arsonist and perhaps even Pooling Venom.

Maybe u could play blue moon - it's somewhat a combination of both. Or a blue red delver list but with Stone Rain, Molten Rain, Blood Moon, Mana Leak, and Censor.

I planned on using Ancient Grudge at least for artifacts. I'm not sure with enchantments though if anything I can eun a couple Naturalize's.

I have a couple Burning-Tree Shaman's that I had incase on Splinter Twin or other combos of that nature. Twin's an out but does anyone think they might still be viable?

I have Ghost Quarter main deck but should I run something like Sowing Salt or Molten Rain in the side?

Don't Blood Moon and Molten Rain go against each other?

APPLE01DOJ- I think pairing red with blue would give you the best land hate cards in modern. Blood Moon, Molten Rain, and Crumble to Dust along with the blue enchantments and counterspells seems better than adding green. You could then combo your blue enchantments with a Boil for awesome land hate lol. I often play RG Ponza in modern and can attest to how great LD can be :)
