Have you considered cards that allow you to put lands from your graveyard into the battlefield? These include, but are not limited to, Crucible of Worlds and The Mending of Dominaria

Also, while Alpine Moon is not played often, between this and land destroyer cards including, but not limited to, Cleansing Wildfire and Destroy the Evidence, could take out your pieces before you can get the combo going. May I suggest finding counter spells to deal with those threats?

Hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

Gattison The pay offs you just mentioned for black actually synergize with the Cleansing Wildfire and Geomancer's Gambit in that by helping our opponent search up lands we leave them with less lands and make both Destroy the Evidence and Balustrade Spy mill our opponents for more. Black also has the diverse Befoul for land or nonblack creature removal. Another cool idea is to lean into your Psychic Venom and also run Contaminated Ground so that you can really make their spells cost them.

I totally get what you're saying about playtesting in a vaccum and not wanting to make people play against it a bunch XD - that makes building ponza all the more difficult! love what you'v

Unless I'm missing something Cleansing Wildfire and Geomancer's Gambit both seem like they don't advance the game plan very much given that they let your opponent search up basics to replace the lands they lose. Pauper tends to involve decks with lots of basics so it would be hard to get rid of so many that our opponents fail to find. That being said since you are running them you might want to consider Silverbluff Bridge over Swiftwater Cliffs because it will let you use either one of those spells to ramp yourself by targeting your own indestructable dual.

yeaGO: its a lot more arbitrary than you think. the computer can't possibly know all the interactions. it's not gonna know what the meta is, which matchups are favorable, or why a sideboard is a certain way, or that a player can use Cleansing Wildfire on Darksteel Citadel to ramp, or that i'm dropping Karn Liberated turn 3 with urza lands. in short, it's plenty arbitrary enough that new players shouldn't be relying on it.

I think you want the Boom / Bust package here with 2x Rustvale Bridge, 1x Goldmire Bridge, 1x Drossforge Bridge. Those also synergize well with Cleansing Wildfire if you ever decide to run it. About the removal package, Lightning Helix isn't good right now. I highly recommend Lightning Bolt and Kaya's Guile.

Maindeck looks pretty solid. I personally like having the Endings maindeck but a lot of lists I see don't run it since the 8 turn spells take up a lot of space.

Cleansing Wildfire isn't great, your tron matchup should already be favorable and Alpine Moon can shut down some tron and valakut stuff without affecting your manabase. Besides that the rest of the SB also looks decent, but I feel like it would be a better use of sideboard slots to replace Emmy and Nahiri with more hate cards like Void Mirror and Chalice of the Void.

20 lands seems a little low for the deck, yeah. On another note, why do you have 4x Cleansing Wildfire and 4x Assassin's Trophy? Without stuff like Aven Mindcensor I don't understand how these help the resource denial gameplan, unless you simply plan to exhaust the opponent's deck of all basic lands. And using Trophy as removal hurts your gameplan by giving them a land (same reason why RW land destruction lists don't play Path to Exile).

Grubbernaut Thanks for your feedback.. Cleansing Wildfire doesn't exile all copies so I have to put at least 3 copies of it. 2 is Crumble to Dust . Can you suggest the 3rd and maybe a 4th replacement? I think Search for Azcanta  Flip but i want to hear your opinion.
