Do you think Grand Warlord Radha would make a fun land destruction deck? have a bunch of tokens and mana dorks, then run stuff like Ruination Decree of Annihilation Price of Glory Impending Disaster Wildfire Boil Ramunap Excavator Crucible of Worlds Orcish Settlers

Rosheen Meanderer was one of my first commander decks I built. It has since turned into Xenagos, God of Revels and currently Omnath, Locus of Mana; but the meanderer still holds a place in my heart

If you want to further pursue the avenue; I have a few more ideas.
Savageborn Hydra
Primordial Hydra
Lifeblood Hydra
Protean Hydra
Krakilin
Endless One
Verdeloth the Ancient
Steel Hellkite
Flameblast Dragon
Orcish Settlers
Banefire
Bonfire of the Damned
Hurricane
Stream of Life
Fireball
Clan Defiance

There's plenty more, but a lot of the one-shot burn spells are just that, one-shot, and don't keep hurting your opponent's turn after turn. Obviously that's a lot of suggestions so choose what's fun for you. This isn't a highly used archetype so a lot of the cards are pretty cheap :)

Cards like Decree of Annihilation scare me as they slow down the game, but one of your opponents could use something like Sensei's Divining Top to get ahead quicker. I know, I've done that to an opponent before after they played Apocalypse.

Genesis Wave drops all of your x-costing creatures onto the 'field as 0/0s and they die. So if you do add a ton of hydras etc I'd suggest removing it. Citanul Flute is epic in here since the converted cost of say, Savageborn Hydra, is only 2.

Anywho, have fun! +1 from me! Pease take a minute to check out some of my decks and +1 them! Cheers

I would focus more on instants and sorceries that make creatures over Acidic Slime Hornet Queen It That Betrays Orcish Settlers Regal Force Xenagod and use spells that double tokens and maybe Strionic Resonator

ComboCrazy on Horror, Carnage, and Annihilation. All are Rakdos.

Hmm, okay. I just thought it'd be a cool early option, if you can't get Rakdos out quickly. Also, why Thran dynamo instead of Hedron Archive? Archive seems like it'd be better here, since Rakdos only requires two colorless, and archive provides draw later. Also Heartless Summoning would help a lot here I think. It helps power out your commander, and only prevents you from playing one creature in your deck, Orcish Settlers, which can be removed for something like Fulminator Mage. Also, Lifeline may be worth looking into, in case you run into a lot of removal. Last off, are the artifact hate redundancies on purpose? I understand all the land hate but you've got a lot of artifact wipes in here. I'd replace one of them with another tutor, if you've got one in mind. I'd get rid of Shattering Spree, myself. It's a bit too color-intensive. Subterranean Tremors would be a great replacement either for Spree or Vandalblast, since it doesn't just kill artifacts, doesn't hurt Rakdos, and can be cast for more if you want the 8/8. Just a thought. Seven deadly sins would be cool for this, I think.

Being that you want to do land hate here are some cheaper nasty land destruction cards that might interest you I don't know many green land hate cards so:

Orcish Settlers <-- would be really nasty with some ramp

Dwarven Miner

Seismic Spike

Implode

Icefall

Feast of Worms

Price of Glory sadly this is a little pricey for a budget deck

Decree of Annihilation

Dwarven Blastminer

Keldon Firebombers

Stoneshaker Shaman

Pyromancer's Goggles <-- if you decide to throw some targeting land hate spells

Rzepkanut: I like Lifeline as a card, but I think it's better in a deck meant for a slower, grindier game, though, and that it helps my opponents too much.

Both Children of Korlis and Masterwork of Ingenuity have been in the deck before and eventually got cut for being too situational.

I love the art on Orcish Settlers (yay, American Gothic reference!) but I think it's too mana-hungry.

Thanks for the comment! :) If you like the deck, you're welcome to leave a +1 ;)

All those self sacrificing cards made me think of Lifeline... also Capashen Unicorn, Children of Korlis, and Orcish Settlers. Maybe Masterwork of Ingenuity. Nice deck looks harsh.
