4vatarofSleep BTE vs the Spirit Guides

They make mana a turn earlier. I really like BTE though, if I wasn't in love with my basic land arts I would probably play it over Sylvan Ranger. Well, the art and the amount of Blood Moons I used to fight. You're certainly not wrong to play it, or any of the similar creatures if it fits your meta.

Wheres Burning-Tree Emissary? I feel this deck could also use another 1 drop mana dork or you can go the routes of

Other creatures that generate mana when ETB: Akki Rockspeaker, Priest of Gix, Priest of Urabrask, Coal Stoker, Hidden Herbalists or Mardu Warshrieker.

or other tinderwall creatures: Blood Pet, Generator Servant, Nest Invader, Pawn of Ulamog, Skirk Prospector, or Blisterpod to help generate mana.

@2gherkins: Holy shit I didn't even think of Urabrask the Hidden. Waaaay better than Craterhoof Behemoth.

Wall of Roots functions like half of a Burning-Tree Emissary. It's like a better Akki Rockspeaker. I've now removed Sakura-Tribe Elder in favor of it. You were right about how awkward Sakura-Tribe Elder gets. It's only good when there's a Tireless Tracker.

I should also give credit where it's due. This deck isn't entirely original. It's based on an old Standard deck, which you can find here:

The way the combo originally worked was to ramp into a Warp World, just like this one. However, at the time, Hunted Troll, his buddies, and Forbidden Orchard worked differently than they do now. Tokens' owners were whoever made the tokens, even if those tokens were put under an opponent's control. So even though your opponent controlled the faeries from Hunted Troll, you were their owner. So when you cast Warp World, you got 5 extra permanents from Hunted Troll. If you were ramping with Forbidden Orchard, you got even more permanents.

They changed the rules for token ownership back in Magic 2010. This was an intentional nerf since Warp World was in M10.

Anywho, I'm still goldfishing the deck. Still trying to figure out how to draw cards. Adding blue for Spreading Seas was my first choice, but you can't Hidden Herbalists into it. Abundant Growth, Nylea's Presence, Oath of Jace, Shielding Plax, Unbridled Growth, Weirding Wood, and Era of Innovation all crossed my mind as well.

@aekrusty: I'll have a look!

TheRedGoat on Purphoros, Forger of Goblins [[Primer]]

Okay, so I realize you have a ton of goblin-centric synergies in addition to your Purphoros plays, so I'm about to unload a bunch of stuff that works as infinite ETB effects and just let you look over them. I've never piloted a Purph/goblin deck even so I'm not about to know where to cut unless you drop all aggro for full combo plays (which I again state I wouldn't know if that is better or even what you're wanting). Anyway. The list of possibilities as follows:

Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle and any creature that creates one or more creatures when it enters or dies.Suggested options not already in your build include Pia Nalaar (for her low cost), Tuktuk the Explorer (same reason), or alternatively Su-Chi. Some of these can work with token creation on death due to the triggers going on the stack at once. By sacking the creature for mana 2 mana, you then stack the triggers to get the token that you can also sac for mana in response to the mantle trigger, thus having 4 mana to revive the first creature.

Mana Echoes does have an infinite loop with Goblin Warren and Phyrexian Altar (yes I get you aren't using it but Skirk Prospector will do the same thing). The Echoes will generate the colorless mana you need, and then one of the three can be sacked for R, and then use it all to sack the other 2 goblins for 3 new tokens. This is a "closed loop" because it doesn't generate extra tokens, but you do get infinite colorless mana in addition to the ETB triggers.

Given the right mana rocks/mana ramp Paradox Engine and Ancestral Statue can create an infinite loop of spell casting for storm triggers or also creature etb. The same is true for Cloudstone Curio and Cryptic Gateway with any or your creatures that make mass tokens ETB. Maybe something could be done with Akki Rockspeaker too if you had cost reduction?

Mana Echoes also can make Krenko, Mob Boss or even Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker go infinite when used with Umbral Mantle and/or Sword of the Paruns (and the right board state).

I can also mention that you are not about to find anything close to enchantment hate in mono-red except through Apocalypse, so I really wouldn't bother changing it out unless you'd want something like Descent of the Dragons in for even more tokens.

Burn at the Stake does happen to have several options for replacement if you'd prefer instant speed effects over easy-ish mass damage.

Lastly, would you say you're ever in need of more combat supportive effects like what Hellrider and Hero of Oxid Ridge or even Bloodmark Mentor and Goblin Wardriver?

Also, sorry for the wall-o-text.
