The driving force behind this deck is the mana ramp from Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl , in addition to Birds of Paradise . This potent combination allows for 4-mana drops as early as turn two, leaving opponents forced to deal with the likes of Shivan Wumpus unless they sacrifice a land or the haste/cascade effect of Bloodbraid Elf which may also result in a turn two land destruction.

Any suggestions for better balance or replacements would be welcome.

*Please note that I have been working on a G/R land destruction deck for awhile and this version is inspired by a build from Star City Games. The following link leads to their essential guide to G/R land destruction which I found incredibly helpful:
