The problem with Destruction is that there is no way to create more powerful custom spells. Despite the fact that you can enchant gear to make Destruction magic cost no magicka, it still falls behind other ways of dealing damage in a huge way. Look at the difference between the DPS of a Master-level Destruction spell, and someone wielding dual Daedric Swords with +One Handed gear.
