This deck is a strange one, I came up with the idea in a dream. I have had fun with Land Destruction on a causal level but this is me trying to push it to Modern. Please drop a suggestion down in the comment. Thank you.

Sorry man I had fun with land destruction too but don't even try. Land destruction is not a valid archetype anywhere except casual. My suggestion is to stop trying and turn back while you still can but if you are going to be stupid and try anyways run [Lightning Bolt], any other burn spells and [Mana Leak].

Stone Rain, Blood Moon, Anger of the Gods, and Ruination are all pretty good cards.

CthulhusNo1FavCultist thanks for the suggestion, but wouldn't Blood Moon turn the lands to basic land, making Molten Rain and Ruination not as useful?

If they can't use the basic lands then why do you need to destroy them?

CthulhusNo1FavCultist, isn't Magus of the Moon just cheaper and as good as Blood Moon?

Contrary to what has been said earlier. There was a modern land distruction deck that did decently at tournaments except it was red green instead (i'll throw a link at the end of this comment). The gameplan is to cast a turn one mana accelerant like Arbor Elf into a turn two Stone Rain. The list ran 10 ways to destroy lands and 4 blood moons main board.

There's also a weird interaction between Goblin Dark-Dwellers and Boom/Bust. When you cast the goblins you are allowed to target the split card boom/bust because boom has cmc 3 or less. However due the way the rules work with split cards it is specified that when you cast a split card like boom/bust you choose what mode you want upon cast. As a result you can cast bust for free when the goblins enter.

Also to clarify an earlier misconception, here is one of the 3 rulings on Blood Moon listed on it's oracle page: "Blood Moons effect doesnt affect supertypes and wont turn any land into a basic land." Ruination isn't modern legal but wanted to make sure you were aware how it worked

Here's the link. It's written by a professional player who saw the deck and decided to give it a shot. He walks through the different cards in it and what various match-ups are like.

Also I can explain why Blood Moon is significantly more expensive/ sees more play than Magus of the Moon does.

Blood moon is a lot more likely to stick in play. Enchantment removal isnt that common compared to creature removal. Almost all decks run creatures whereas relatively few run enchantments. Following that logic if you look at first the mainboard, Abrupt Decay is the most common card that can take of it (yes I know some deck run things like Maelstrom Pulse and similar things mainboard but it is less common and oftimes hard to cast through a bloodmoon/magus) Sideboard wise some decks back enchantment removal but some don't.

Less removal=less likely to have an answer

(i'm not saying that blood moon is better in EVERY case but that's why magus sees minimal play when bloodmoon sees so much)
