Wake of Destruction
Destroy target land and all other lands with the same name as that land.
Wake of Destruction Discussion
1 week ago
Wake of Destruction is a maybe but Nightmare Incursion is definitely staying. I've exiled 15+ cards with. Not to mention adding Sadistic Sacrament on top of it for those that decide to incur Rakdos' wrath early haha. I am looking at AEther Snap as it has been underwhelming as of late. Even though on paper the card is insanely good. Everlasting Torment is another that I haven't cared for. It's in there for the "damage can't be prevented" aspect, but that just hasn't mattered recently. Not to mention I have other instant speed sources. I like the idea and am willing to try it out king-saproling. Thanks for the comment man!

Please link all cards in your question.
Yes. Loyalty abilities, like other activated abilities, go on the stack and can be responded to. Nissa doesn't make the lands indestructible until the ultimate resolves. The forests from her ability will not yet be on the battlefield either though, so your opponent would still be able to put out any remaining forest cards from their deck and there would be no time that they had those cards out and didn't have the emblem.

personal thoughts as a boros main... i would swap the Ash Barrens for Mistveil Plains , what you lose in speed you gain back in sweet synergy with sunforger, or at worst, tossing spells back into you deck is never a bad thing.
also consider Talisman of Conviction , its basically another signet, and thats never really a bad thing.
it can be a bit awkward to get used to playing around, but i have found a lot of love for Experimental Frenzy to help with card draw

Game Plan Show
- Draw into commander protection while establishing non-land mana
- Deploy T-800 Neheb and hexproof/shroud/indestructibility him
- Blow the lands to hell
- Atart establishing stronger board using Neheb and artifact mana
- Smashi for commander damage
Cards that have alread been cut from the project and sometimes why Show
- Static Orb - Found to stall out the game too much, maybe played too fast and got too much hate for it?
- Sphere of Resistance - replaced with God-Pharaoh's Statue
- Wake of Destruction - felt bad when it would wreck orher mono-colored buddies. Mono-love!
- Molten Hydra - wouldn't grow fast enough, replaced with Stolen Strategy
- Ember Swallower - too much mana for a minor effect that late into the game. replaced with Etali, Primal Storm

Since pirates are fairly weak as a tribe, you're going to need to limit what others can do and attack their resources in order to chip in for the win. Your commander helps with creatures, so I would attack the hand and mana to slow them down.
I recommend discard like Capital Punishment , Dark Intimations , Discovery / Dispersal , Herald of Anguish (great with treasures!), Syphon Mind , Liliana's Specter , Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip, Scythe Specter , Siren of the Silent Song , Skull Rend , Tasigur's Cruelty , and Torment of Hailfire .
While land destruction is often looked down upon as unfun, if you decide to keep with a lot of small creatures, you can come out at an advantage by keeping the lands on the board low. You'd have to build your deck to accommodate that, though. For that, you have Mana Vortex , Tectonic Break , Desolation , Epicenter , Ember Swallower , Rite of Ruin (again, great with treasures), Boom / Bust , Impending Disaster , and Wake of Destruction . You'll also find that creature stealing effects snowball, since you can remove blockers to get in with your pirates. Insurrection , Expropriate , and Blatant Thievery will all serve you well.
Some generic tribal cards will also help. Cards like Vanquisher's Banner , Shared Animosity , Door of Destinies , Konda's Banner , Kindred Dominance , Kindred Discovery , Coat of Arms , Metallic Mimic , Adaptive Automaton , Obelisk of Urd , Path of Ancestry , etc. will help shore up the weakness of the tribe.
Finally, I would head to EDHREC just to see the staples that are played in Grixis colors, as well as for your commander and whatever theme you choose to go with. You can also toggle to budget in the top right in order to see what will make it easier to build without sinking a bunch of money into the deck. However, keep in mind that cards like River's Rebuke don't scale up well to multiplayer, so you'll find the choices people make are very different. While cards like Cyclonic Rift , Sol Ring and Vandalblast will hurt the pocketbook a bit, they're good investments for whatever Commander decks you choose to build in the future.
If you don't like what you see, you can also head to Scryfall to search for cards. They'll let you limit the results to cards in your color identity, put price limits, and let your rank the results by how much commander play they see.

I will say, land destruction is my least favorite mechanic. I understand why it exists, and in some cases it is necissary. that said, blink-riders in standard was one of the few times that I ended up taking over a year long break from magic.
oddly, land hate wans't always (or even primarily) red. black and blue had some solid hozing abilities right at the start.
Erosion and Psychic Venom were punishing as hell for early game, and while it may not destroy the land, Phantasmal Terrain does mess with mana bases pretty well. Evil Presence and Blight helped round out Sinkhole for black. red had Stone Rain, Boil, Flashfires, and Fissure. blue had Volcanic Eruption and Acid Rain, (to counter act green's Tsunami, or Desert Twister). White had color hate for days with Drought and Conversion to name a few
oddly enough, the color pie was really into opposing color hate and ally color help at the start.
I don't think it was really until urza's block that red came to the forefront. and what a forefront it was. Wake of Destruction. as in, "see that mono colored deck over there? END THEM."
