My Windgrace deck has a snow-land sub theme for cards like Sunstone and Glacial Crevasses . Doing this in your deck would require swapping some of the random lands with snow basics, but I’ve never run into a problem with not having the needed color. The crevasse especially being good to protect Windgrace.

I’d probably swap out Wildfire for Jokulhaups . Same cmc, does a lot more though. Maybe throw in Obliterate and Death Cloud . All cards that keep Windgrace alive and well, while neutering everyone else. Epicenter and Impending Disaster are also good wipes in this deck.

Bonus points for running Possessed Portal . If the opponents don’t have a solution in hand, the game is over with that on the board.

Also a bit surprised you aren’t running Constant Mists in a deck that recurs and spits out lands so easily.

I had a Casual Mono-Red Land Destruction deck that used many of these same cards and combo'd them with Strip Mine.

I'm not sure if Strip Mine will fly in your playgroup as it's not legal in many formats at all, but it's a devastating combo with Boom / Bust since you can sac it in response after it's targeted but before it's destroyed. 2 mana for 2 destroyed lands. Pretty nice.

It's a bit pricey of a drop, but if you want to keep Raze and Tremble then I'd definitely invest in at least a couple Crucible of Worlds. You could get away with pretty cheap cards in Mono-Red Land destro. for the most part, but that's one that combos remarkably well with a lot of the cards which require you to destroy your own lands. Then you could also get away with running cards like Impending Disaster to keep the land pressure on.

Beyond that, I see no reason not to run 4x Molten Rain instead of 4x Stone Rain, just a little added potential benefit at no mana cost. Also, I think that 2x Invader Parasite (another card I ran in my Casual deck) instead of 2x Keldon Halberdier would be a solid call. Far better use of 5 mana in my opinion, and the Parasite keeps playing off the Land Destruction theme.

Crack the Earth can make for an annoying Turn 1 play, and Dingus Eggs can move the game along even when all you're doing is eating lands. Magnivore was on my Sideboard, but he pairs extremely well with all of the Land Destruction spells.

I hope at least one or two of these suggestions helps ya along!

Neheb, the Eternal: Damage = Mana, Mana = More damage and chaos. I feel like that's all there really is to say on that subject. More wrath of god effects, maybe? Damnation, Impending Disaster.

Reznorboy, Past in Flames seems awesome in theory, but is a bit too costly for this deck. To pay 4 mana and then the mana cost of whatever spells I want to flashback, most of the time I'd be able to recur one spell, maybe two, and forget about casting it for its own flashback cost. Desperate Ritual and spells like that are certainly something I'm considering, if I can find the right one or two. Mana Seism is really the only one I'm using at the moment. Also, hell yes build that Tasigur deck!

Peoyogon, I'm already running Boom / Bust and Impending Disaster, as well as Tectonic Break and quick spells like Raze and Tremble. Jokulhaups and some of the others you listed are too high mana cost. If I have that much mana to spend, I've either been messing up, or I've been doing amazing. If the latter, I have a lot more lands to lose than the opponents, and if the former it's probably too late to be helpful. And Decree of Annihilation is a hard no because I have a lot of interaction with my graveyard, and would be screwing myself if I exiled it. However, Boil and Ruination are certainly possible maybes.

Have you considered putting in any mass land destruction? Jokulhaups, Decree of Annihilation, Boom / Bust, Impending Disaster, and Obliterate are great options if you want everything to wipe away and cards like Boil, Ruination, and Wildfire can be basically one sided land wipes in the right build.

Hi there,

This deck already looks great, but we thought it would be worth mentioning several cards that could increase its power even more:

You're going to have to run a lot of symmetrical effects (hit all players) and then run cards to get around them yourself. In a 4 player pod, if you 1 for 1 trade cards from hand for opponents lands, you're going to be really far behind. You start with 7 cards, while your opponents collectively have 21 cards. 1 for 1 trades are not the way to go about building this deck.

First, some cards that hate on lands. Winter Orb Static Orb Hokori, Dust Drinker

Now, some ways to negate the drawback

  • Boros Garrison and other bouncelands -> lets you get more from untapping just 1 land, and the bounce resets a land to enter untapped again
  • Lands that tap for 2+ mana -> Ancient Tomb City of Traitors Gaea's Cradle most of these are expensive-ish. Also check out depletion lands Remote Farm its a full cycle and they cheap.
  • Permanent untap effects -> Seedborn Muse and similar
  • Lots of artifact or creature based mana. Signets and Talismans are great in five color budget.

Next, some cards that destroy lands or hate on lands. Armageddon Boil Choke Flashfires Acid Rain Ravages of War Destructive Force Contamination Blood Moon Magus of the Moon Tsabo's Web Omen of Fire Strip Mine Wasteland Impending Disaster Tectonic Break Ruination Wildfire

Then we run some cards that let us recur lands, or like when lands break Ramunap Excavator Crucible of Worlds Life from the Loam Terravore The Gitrog Monster Titania, Protector of Argoth Splendid Reclamation

Add some lands matter cards, some ramp, and some good beaters, and you have a deck.

Jokulhaups and Decree of Annihilation are obliterate 2-3. You could also run things like Impending Disaster
