Volcanic Eruption Discussion

Surge of Righteousness to get rid of red creatures.
Chill to tax red cards.
Baleful Stare to draw a lot of cards.
don't forgot some neutral cards like Path to Exile , Swords to Plowshares , and Grasp of Fate just in case you aren't playing against red guys. If you want to keep the theme of color hose, Mana Maze and Drought are fun.
Finally, if you want to drop 400 dollars against your friend. Invoke Prejudice .
I hope that helps.

I will say, land destruction is my least favorite mechanic. I understand why it exists, and in some cases it is necissary. that said, blink-riders in standard was one of the few times that I ended up taking over a year long break from magic.
oddly, land hate wans't always (or even primarily) red. black and blue had some solid hozing abilities right at the start.
Erosion and Psychic Venom were punishing as hell for early game, and while it may not destroy the land, Phantasmal Terrain does mess with mana bases pretty well. Evil Presence and Blight helped round out Sinkhole for black. red had Stone Rain, Boil, Flashfires, and Fissure. blue had Volcanic Eruption and Acid Rain, (to counter act green's Tsunami, or Desert Twister). White had color hate for days with Drought and Conversion to name a few
oddly enough, the color pie was really into opposing color hate and ally color help at the start.
I don't think it was really until urza's block that red came to the forefront. and what a forefront it was. Wake of Destruction. as in, "see that mono colored deck over there? END THEM."

This is an awesome list! I was contemplating something like this a while ago, but I had no idea where to start. I'm so glad you started this! I'll definitely add this to the list of lists.
As for your comment on Volcanic Eruption and other color-hate cards, don't feel bad about leaving them out. I would not consider them eligible for this list either. Color-hate between & is actually pretty normal, as well as color-hate (versus enemy colors) of some degree in all colors. like Black Knight that one card that turns all mountains into plains, or something like that.
Also: Scryb Sprites
And: do you think Goblin Gaveleer would count? He always seemed odd to me, like he should be & human instead.

might be easier if you filter that list a bit (otherwise its just an endless search on card databases with basic lands, colors and "destroy"...etc as keywords)
are you just looking to build a database or looking for a specific kind of hate in specific specific colors?

Volcanic Eruption seems expensive compared to the other options available. With 4 copies of Chill, and 2 copies of Sphere of Law already, I don't see adding a 3rd. Disciple of Law was an option that I was considering, but other than Cycling, I see no real advantage to it over the other options.
