Hi,

Well I tested it too, first of all you HAVE to play Garruk, it has the best sinnergy with destructive force, Bloodbraid elf is senseless, if you want to wil just go straight to the goal. Ajani 3x 4 is really tough gildeon fits well against aggro decks. Anyway you shouldnt play more than 8 walkers. If you play day of judgement elf doesnt fit... The cascade has great sinnergy with knight thats right, but you cant go for everything. The ring is slowing down your goal. You should play the green titan... It fits really well. Dont play expanses go for catacombs insted. Dont play cultivate, take harrow over it and try it with khalni too. Dont play tapped lands =)

Thats what I think about it.

I think you have the right idea. What you want is a good deck that blows out your opponent when you resolve destructive force. I think 4 day of judgement is too much. You have destructive force as another sweeper. Harrow seems much worse than cultivate, giving your knight +1/+1 is not worth the land cultivate puts in your hand, also if mana leak gets popular a countered harrow will mean you lose. Like the other guy said, garruk seems good. One big problem with your deck is that you have so many 4 drops, a lot of 3 drops, zero 2 drops, and lightning bolt as your only 1 drop. I would play wall of omens to help your curve and help your aggro match ups. also if rdw is a problem sideboard the hate for it like fire walker and the white leyline. I'm not sure how stable your mana is, but i think i'd prefer the naya tri land to evolving wild effects just for am ore consistent mana base.

you are right with harrow and khalni without harrow isnt a good solution, probably 3x cultivate a 3x explore should fit well.

2x lists just made it to X-2 or better at the Pittsburgh amsterdam PTQ. RWG, both a bit different, but the overall thought of the deck is decent.
