Description

Ponza with a deeper focus on land hate which I casually called "Purple Rain".

It is currently my competitive deck and I am proud to say it's a home brew.

The strong point of this deck beside being anti-meta is its draw power. You draw so much in this deck it is unreal, the mixture of heavy draw and land destroy is not to be underestimated. Bomat Courier and Ghirapur Orrery are all-stars in here. Bomat Courier allow you to quickly prepare another hand and the fact that it has Haste AND can be sacrified in instant make it an important tool. Ghirapur Orrery is unreal, its power in Land Destroy is over abusive and I enjoy it while its legal, because when you face it, you think its a joke. Your opponent can play two land each turn but doesn't have any because you play heavy land destroy. If your opponent has an empty hand he can draw 3 card at each upkeep but he have a full hand because he doesn't have any land to play his stuff. In short, all Ghirapur Orrery effect apply only to you.

Not mentioning Ancestral Vision and Goblin Dark-Dwellers that can cast back Ancestral Vision if necessary. Otherwise you cast back Land Destruction spells. And the infamous Spreading Seas.

The sideboard: most of the sideboard card are obvious but the Ghost Quarter and Crucible of Worlds. You side them in when you face a deck where Blood Moon isn't really effective. So you play Crucible of Worlds and can literally crack Ghost Quarter and Encroaching Wastes every turn. And guess what, with Ghirapur Orrery you can crack them twice each turn.

Counterflux may be odd in here but it's the only way I found to win against Storm and Ad Nauseam.

Pithing Needle is to call Aether Vial or Planeswalker or fetchlands. Because you play Land Destruction so your opponent will crack their fetchlands at end of your turn so you cast Pithing Needle , ask if it resolve and if your opponent say it resolve, it enter the battlefield THEN you call his fetchland and at that moment it is to late for him to crack it. In short you destroyed his fetchland for 1 colorless mana.
