Quote from kylarA land denial + land destruction deck, Basically u ramp the mana up fast with some cheap mana dorks and get Blood Moon up early to secure a win and proceed on with land destruction using Sundering Titan or Sylvan Primordial with Conjurer's Closet by constantly returning those 2 to the battlefield.
Did some gold fishing, ya could probably get blood moon out on turn 3 to lock it the board down, but it maybe abit slow for modern.

Quote from NessOnettIf im to be honest, decks like these tend to play on my nerves when i see them. Perhaps im too critical in my thinking that when people post decks looking for feedback, they should at least be attempting to be competitive or given it some thought/testing first.
Quote from JPoJohnsonLeyline of Sanctity does a lot more than shut down burn! It removes discard, it removes many of the Planeswalker's abilities, it turns off lifeloss from Deathrite Shaman... I've found it's great against a lot of cards that people run that try to disrupt your gameplan. It turns off both variations of Angel's Grace (Ad Nauseam and Rite of Consumption). UR Delver, Red Affinity hurts less.... I've just really liked it in quite a few match ups but can understand the desire to run more threats than protection.
I like the reasoning on Ensnaring Bridge though. Makes perfect sense.
Quote from Mr.EI've wasted more than my fair share of time writing up big posts nobody seems to care about, in more than one thread here or elsewhere. :[ I read it !!
I'm not sure I have much else to contribute other than I don't understand why your fetches are split the way they are (why not 4 Arid Mesa?) and you could stand to have a basic Plains in case of Path / GQ / need to fetch without Shocking yourself. It's somewhat inspiring for me after my failed attempt at a UGx land denial deck centered around Annex and similar cards.
Quote from NessOnettA lot of Jund decks used to run boom//bust for this reason(and the free cascade off BBE). I always thought someone should take it a little further.
The problem is that Land Destruction is often an all-or-nothing strategy. Since your basically sacrificing your turn3 play to set your opponent back a turn. If you can keep this up for a few turns, it's amazing. Eventually you run your opponents dry of land drops, while making your own. Leaving them stuck at 2-3, while you're double that. But as a single play, it's risky. You've given up 'a'(key) turn to basically take away your opponent's 'best' (latest) turn. Might go well, might go terrible. Need to be wary of if you can afford to 'waste' a turn where you don't play a threat or remove one of theirs. And if you find yourself in a situation where you can't afford to lose that third turn play, you have 'dead' cards in your hand that you can't afford to play. Which could be problematic, thinning out the 'goodstuff' density.
But if you do throw in the Boom//Bust, I'd up the fetch count.
Quote from bizzycolahas anyone mentioned to update the available LD spells to include Rain of Tears
when I looked threw I noticed it was excluded really didn't want to scan entire thread to see if its been mentioned so if this a repeat my bad.
Quote from KirliaI want this deck to work, I love LD. I don't have too much to add, and I would probably play something a little similar to what you posted NessOnett, but have you considered Ghostly Prison? It seems like it would perfectly counter a lot of your troubled matchups, as traditionally an early couple of creatures (or god forbid, a Garruk of some sort, or an elspeth, etc) blow out LD decks. Its also basically an auto-win against tokens, goblins, kiki-exarch (kind of), and a few others. Has it been tested? At least in SB? It just slows down pretty much the whole format so much that you have time to go for lethal.
