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.

JonathanSamurai probably Geomancer's Gambit . it kind of sucks

You could consider running Flagstones of Trokair with plains but theres no armageddon type shit in modern and its a nonbo with blood moon, so idk

So, keep in mind I rarely play out and am not the best guy to ask about the meta. My expertise lies mainly in creativity (which most MtG players call jank, lol).

However, I do play a LOT of pauper regardless, so, I playtested in the tester for lil bit, and I feel draw is problem. I also kept wanting to cast Simian Spirit Guide as a creature. How does the deck play for you? What's your situation by turn 4-5 in most games? And then later on?

Depending on how you play the deck, I would consider putting both Cleansing Wildfire (instead of Stone Rain) and Geomancer's Gambit (instead of Roiling Terrain) in the deck. Both will cantrip themselves, and even though they both allow the opponent to replace the lands they lost, Cleansing Wildfire makes the land enter tapped, so it still slows the opponent down. Plus you should be able to just destroy those lands within a turn or two before they become a problem anyway.

You could also try one each of Forgotten Cave and Tranquil Thicket for even more draw.

I also feel like Raze should be in here. It's SO cheap that it should be considered at least. Maybe swap out Simian Spirit Guide for something like Sakura-Tribe Elder to support the extra demands on your land base?

Strictly better Geomancer's Gambit gooo

Kinda surprised 's targeted enchantment removal ended up being as straightforward as a Devour in Shadow

Felidar Sovereign got a spiritual successor

Relic Robber is really cute yet not really fitting in my Marisi, Breaker of the Coil deck

Angel of Jubilation that's castable outside of mono-? kinda wowed, although I wish it traded some stats for evasion

you should go into white for Path to Exile and Settle the Wreckage

Geomancer's Gambit is a stone rain that cantrips

I don't know if you can find a way to cheat in Realm Razer but if you do, damnnnn

Maybe Geomancer's Gambit instead of plain ol Stone Rain?

Also, why the Arsonists instead of some other beater with trample, or at least without any conditions?
