Thanks for the comments. I did have a question on Seismic Shift, you stated that I should do more with land destruction, is this card just too expensive?

With your suggestions, I made a few adjustments and will be aquirring cards over time. As a start I am adding:

Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Sol Ring, Homeward Path, Grafted Exoskeleton, Fireshrieker, Trepanation Blade, Demolish, Stone Rain, Ring of Valkas, Violent Impact, and Hazoret's Monument.

As time goes on I will continue to swap out cards. As far as the direction, I would like to go more casual and 4 way free-for-all. Any other help is greatly appreciated.

Molten Rain would be ideal for this deck! Definitely better than Stone Rain.

Hi Prinsk

I'm guessing this deck is built around the cards you have?

The best way to build decks and buy cards is purchasing singles, rather than boosters. This has always been the case until the recent Challenger decks (https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/challenger-decks-lists-2018-02-23) were released. If this deck is built around the cards you have then it's a Casual deck, not really a Modern one. Modern is a competitive format, often aggressively so with decks optimised to win from turn four...

Modern's larger card pool (11764 cards) means the efficiency of the cards can be optimised, you can choose the most cost effective card from the pool, for example you have Shock rather than Lightning Bolt or Spreading Rot instead of Rain of Tears or Stone Rain. Another factor is consistency, you have a lot of single cards in this deck and aren't running 4x of anything, this means the variance in your games is going to be very noticeable.

The question is, what is it you want to do with your deck?

Try to think about a single theme and once you answer that, you can then hone it to use 4x of the most efficient cards that help your win condition. I hope this is of help, good luck and have fun brewing your deck.

Focusing on land destruction/land control in mono-g is really tough, and nearly impossible to make competitive. The idea of mana ramping is great to get your land control stuff out quickly, but TBH you might be better off doing a rakdos or gruul land destruction deck (the gruul version is known as ponza IIRC) so you can get access to the good stuff like Boom/Bust + Darksteel Citadel, Stone Rain, Molten Rain, and Simian Spirit Guide to get them out quicker etc. Relying on ramp to get your strategy out means you have less hand space for everything else, and green doesnt draw cards well, or remove opponents creatures well. Rakdos land destruction also means you get to run Lightning Bolt and Fatal Push.

@ThatGrimGuy:

I was looking at Pillage, but was scared the price would come up. I went ahead and switched out the Stone Rains in the sideboard, and went up to 4 copies due to the versatility. If the price hasn't gone up by now, it probably never will.

Pillage is common rarity now due to the masters 25. It's a strictly better Stone Rain.

Quinnagin27,
I'm with Epidilius ... if you're looking for an LD strategy that's competitive enough to hang on the top tables with Jund, Ponza is (IMO) your only option.

Between 4x Stone Rain and 3-4x Molten Rain (not to mention 4x Blood Moon and 2-3x Trinisphere for additional Mana denial), the deck has plenty of LD. You can add more (e.g., Mwonvuli Acid-Moss and/or Fulminator Mage), if your meta allows, but I would not generally recommend that ... LD is a GREAT tempo play, but it's not a win-con.

Andrew Wolber's list is the current "best deck", and it's hard to wrong with that as a starting point. I can also recommend the PonzaMTG subreddit and our Ponza.dec (Deckbuilding Primer) here on T/O.

Good luck (and good skill) with whatever you decide!

Bulldawg1310: "tongue"

AMJacker: your convoluted approach is strictly worse. if Stone Rain "doesn't work" for you, you're doing it very, very wrong.
