U/R Land destruction, magnivore smash?

okay, so I'm not exactly sure on the numbers but last FNM at my LGS was modern format and I knew my standard deck probably wouldn't do great but one guy was playing a U/R land destruction deck with a lot of cantrips and then after about turn 4 he would drop a magnivore and just beat me down while I had no land to do anything with and his deck was somthing like this.



like I said, Im not exactly sure but by the time he would hit the magnivore, my creatures would be tapped or dead from the burn and he would swing for the rest of my life total.

do you think this is a viable deck in modern format because other than the duals and a couple of the cards, it looks really cheap.
Well, ld isn't really a thing, wizards decided it's unfun and stopped printing good cards for it.

But, hey, that isn't an ld deck. It's a deck with 4 stone rains. A bad deck with stone rains.

It's go no card advantage besides the forked bolts, some card disadvantage (index is bad) and it's wincons are 4 beaters that just beg to be pathed. The top decks and the contenders would eat it alive.

I just played against it I'm not trying to build it. Their had to be other land destruction as well in his deck because everytime i played a land, it would be bounced or destroyed, I was just guessing on the cards in his deck but thanks for your reply
Use Shivan Wumpus. Profit.
My novel, Mektar, Clash of Ideals, is now available for purchase! Just click this text. I have +30 bragging rights according to HairlessThoctar. Just saying.
i used a deck like this back in the day when it was still standard legal it is a pretty straight forward deck that florishes in multicolored metas. my memory is a little sketch but this should give you the basic ghist of the deck.

Crack the Earth
Boomerang
Boom // Bust
Eye of nowhere
Stone Rain
Molten Rain
Magnivore
Desperate Ritual

Deck is supposed to have rite of flame as well but its banned in modern


after that just round out the deck with as many lands that can produce both red and blue mana and can be used the turn they come in. this is important for being able to get boomerang and eye off.
