Burn at the Stake Discussion

Grave Pact can be quicker than Dictate by a turn.
Have you tested with Doubling Season and/or (more budget) Parallel Lives? Burn at the Stake is a great targeted finisher here, too, if Comet Storm is countered. Altar of the Brood is a cheap alt win con, and Shared Animosity gives you a way to go wide with Kobold Tokens, if necessary. Blood Artist can back up Cutthroat.
I have a similar list up at Prossh Mill; please do take a look if you think there might be anything useful there.
Have fun brewing!

Hm. For life gain, Vampire Nighthawk or Gifted Aetherborn all day long. Or Vampire Cutthroat even, to help in a damage race. To help with card draw, I'd cut the Kazuuls, since they are kinda a win-more condition. You could also experiment cutting the Arbiters or the Dragons, since deathtouch will trade with an opposing creature and you won't need to worry about minimizing the attacks.
Also, for the record, indestructible beats trample. Since there's no "lethal damage" dealt.
Perhaps a spell like Burn at the Stake would give you some late-game reach?

Hey there! Looks like a solid deck to me! There are a few cards that I would consider adding, though, mostly just EDH staples:
- Blasphemous Act
- Chaos Warp
- Reforge the Soul
- Temple of the False God
- Mind Stone
- Outpost Siege
- Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip
- Hammer of Purphoros
- Forgotten Cave
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
- Ogre Battledriver
- Faithless Looting
- Zealous Conscripts (goes infinite with Kiki-Jiki)
- Dualcaster Mage
- Magus of the Wheel
- Mana Geyser
- Burnished Hart
- Dictate of the Twin Gods
And then some cards that work particularly well with Purphoros:- Rakka Mar- Flameshadow Conjuring- Tooth and Claw- Pia and Kiran Nalaar- Goblin Warchief- Goblin Matron- Ogre Battledriver- Embermaw Hellion- Burn at the Stake- Goblin King
Some cards that I would consider cutting:
- Dragon Fodder
- Krenko's Command
- Fiery Gambit
- Molten Birth
- Thatcher Revolt
- Generator Servant
- Harsh Mentor
- Kari Zev, Skyship Raider
- Zurgo Bellstriker
In any case, sweet deck! Good luck!

Reported for feeding.
Also, if you even plan on upping the amount of token generation you have, you could also run Burn at the Stake

I used to have an Intet, the Dreamer dragon tribal deck and from experience of playing it and against the other legendary dragons kin they are very mana hungry commanders. So other cards outside them have to be very efficient in their play/purpose.
Cards that I see as slow or inefficient are: Bearscape (too much mana for too little return), Custodi Soulbinders (< same), Elspeth, Knight-Errant (the Sun's Champion is better imo), Karen Negotiations (slow), Warstorm Surge (majority of guys are <2/2s so why bother?), Beacon of Creation (best scenario is 5 insects, but almost always will be less), Dragon Broodmother (I don't think your mana can get this ratio reliably atm), Master of the Wild Hunt (too slow), Kessig Cagebreakers (too dependent on wipes unless you see them a lot), Jade Mage (too mana intensive), Nemata, Grove Guardian (too slow and the +1/1 is negligible), and Selesnya Guildmage ( < same).
I think you included many cards because they make a saporling token, even if inefficiently, which is fine if that is what you want to do. If I made Rith I'd probably make it a ETB goodstuff deck with going wide or burn win-cons. Cast cards like Reclamation Sage, Banisher Priest, and Inferno Titan to control the board, Rith makes an army in the mean time, then go wide with Beastmaster Ascension & co. or burn someone out with Impact Tremors/Burn at the Stake (add in Reiterate & co. to copy opponents' spells, counter a counter, or your own BatS).
I get its budget but those are my thoughts, hope something helps.
