Hoard-Smelter Dragon Discussion

@5dollarMTG: Thank you for the Deck list! Love this one, it’s fun and annoying. Only downside is playing against an opponent who can easily get rid of your Myr Landshaper. Hoping for a Liquimetal Coating while having tons of (useless) artifact-destroyers in your hand can be painful. For this reason I added a few Welding Jars just in case. Having one Hoard-Smelter Dragon in the deck seemed enough for me, since surviving until you draw it is easy after having played Splinter :)

Made my biggest changes in awhile today.

Hey Hi all. I used to have a R/G Land destruction deck here that had 29 +1's, likes, that was standard Format.
Then I changed it, to a modern deck, and it got +19 +1's,likes at another site.
Then I changed it again, and post it here again.
It can get out a Deus of Calamity , on, by turns 1,2,3.
It destroys lands on turns 1,2,3.
The deck destroys Jund, Tron, Kiki Chord.
I have worked a hard a long time on this deck.
So I posted the deck, as a kind of example, template, Primer, with a semi kinda, sorta, semi article like deck description.
Also I am trying to build one of the best Land Destruction decks possible.
And I want to help those in the community to be able build the best land destruction deck possible.
So please view, read, etc, the deck, when want to.
Also please comment on, about the deck on, at the deck, when want to.
Also when,if you like the deck, please like, +1 the deck, when, if you like deck.
That would, will help me, others assess the deck.
Also if the deck does NOT get enough +1's, it would probably get ignored.
I plan on buying the cards for this deck,then playing the deck at competitive FNM's, PTQ, etc.

Thanks Darth for your comment.
Your right that Ponza's Ramp package is better for what it wants to do.
The difference between my almost mostly semi pure LAND DESTRUCTION deck, and Ponza is:
From what I have seen, Ponza is NOT DEPENDENT on Land Destruction the way my deck is.
What I mean by that is, is if Ponza is able to destroy land, that's bonus. But if not, it will RAMP UP to it having more THREATS then my deck, then use creature Removal, burn, protection of its threats to win. And its Ramp package is better then my deck's Ramp package at doing that.
My deck is different in that if I dont destroy opponents land, then this deck is SUNK.
This deck Ramps in the following ways:
It uses the 4 Birds, or 4 Arbor elves, or 4 Mana Dorks, to help destroy land on, by turn 2.
It uses 4 Simian Spirit Guide 's to destroy lands on turns 1,2,3.
That, this does 2 things:
It deramps my opponent, as as such is a kind of tempo ramp for me, putting me ahead land wise ahead of opponent.
Using the ramp that I use to destroy lands on turns 1,2,3, alao helps me get out more land destruction cards on future turns, and helps me get out my semi finishers.
By turns 4,5,6,7,8:
I have destroyed about 3,4,5,6 opponents land.to the point, where opponent either has 0, Zero,1,2 lands.
I have about 3,4,5,6,7 land.
I have out one, an or some of the following:
A. Acidic Slime
D. Hoard-Smelter Dragon .
You said that my deck lacks consistency of Ponza.
That's probably true, when compared to the OVERALL consistency of Ponza.
But my deck is actually more consistent then Ponza AT DESTROYING LAND more often, and more consistent then Ponza at destroying lands Turns 1,2,3.
My deck is VERY consistent at destroying lands, and at destroying lands turns 1, 2, 3.
Now where my deck is similar to Ponza, is that like Ponza, I destroy land, ramp up to threats.
Its just that Ponza has more,and better threats then my deck.
And I destroy land better then Ponza.
That might change a little as I am putting Deus of Calamity into deck(Thanks Funky).
Also I am not saying my deck is better then Ponza. It either may or may not be better the Ponza,an or probably is better then my deck.
But the 1 thing my deck is better then Ponza at, is that my deck is a better LAND DESTRUCTION deck that is better at destroying lands then Ponza is.

Nevermind about my previous question, comment.
I finally found a deck, with Hogaak in it(Casual Deck)
While Hogaak is AWESOME, can get out turns 2,3,4, and win turns 3,4,5,6,consistently.
And my Land Destruction on turns 1,2,3, with Boom/bust, Pillage , Liquimetal Coating , and Primal Command , and Incendiary Command , would nuke lands on turns 1,2,3, make it harder to get stuff out. Then nuke your 2/2's with incendiary command, so that cant use them to convoke out Hogaak. And use Primal command to shuffle your graveyard back into your libary, then use eternal witness to reuse Primal Command to shuffle your graveyard back into your library again, so rhat you wouldnt be able to use your graveyard to delve Hogaak out.
And even if get Hogaak out, I would just either Wrecking Ball destroy Hogaak, or use Liquid Metal Coatings to turn Hogaak into a Artifact, then destroy him with Oxidize, Pillage, etc.
Hogaak is easily dealt with, and shouldnt be banned, unless can get him out on turns 1,2 very consistently, which I dont think can be done YET. If that can be done, then he should be banned.

I can’t imagine Hoard-Smelter Dragon ever seeing play before the end of the game. Why not just run either Glissa Sunseeker , Sunder Shaman , or Thrashing Brontodon in that slot instead? All of these options will see play before game end and should help lock down the board for you

Alright, Iona, Shield of Emeria has been banned. :( I did get her out with a hard cast, just once and prevented all my opponents from casting spells, they all folded immediately... I changed about 13 cards out in the deck, removing Dreadbore , Flooded Strand , Hoard-Smelter Dragon , Iona, Mortuary Mire , Overmaster , Reaper from the Abyss , Seething Song , Wind-Scarred Crag . I put in, Reconnaissance , Hellkite Charger , Archfiend of Despair , Blood Crypt , Godless Shrine , Sunbaked Canyon , Winds of Abandon , Bolas's Citadel , Talisman of Indulgence , and Thaumatic Compass Flip... In process of swapping 3 more cards for Kaalia, Zenith Seeker , Erebos, God of the Dead , as well as Pyroblast
