Dictate of Erebos Discussion
9 hours ago
Ok I dropped Mimic Vat for Sterling Grove Because I had mimic vat in there specifically to work with growing ranks to copy any creature with the upkeep trigger. And I'm considering dropping Butcher of Malakir for Avenger of Zendikar because I'm already running Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos.

Good evening, thegigibeast, NarejED, and everyone here. Its been a while, but Im ready to resubmit my Purphoros, God of the Forge deck again since it finally hit 100 upvotes. Alright, let me begin my case.
I believe that a Purphoros deck needs to be more than a Tribal-goblin deck. If left to be purely goblin-like, you tend to miss out on amazing and needed cards, like Norin the Wary, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Tempt with Vengeance, and Grinning Ignus, just to name a few. Infinite combos are also awesome, but as has very minimal amount of tutor cards, I just leave them along (also a personal preference not to have infinite combos here). However I do list them in my description in case a player wants to have them too.
With some suggestions, I have lowered the CMC in this deck. Even with Blasphemous Act, the range is as little as 2.69. I've also changed up a third of the deck by adding Snow-Covered Mountain and all. Hmm... However, I do not believe that Purphoros needs a card like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. My goal with Purphoros is to not let him have enough devotion to be a creature, as even indestructible creatures are more prone to removals more than indestructible enchantments, case being Swords to Plowshares and Dictate of Erebos.
I hope that you would reconsider my request to see if my deck is worth joining the list here. Or any comments/suggestions. Thank you for your time.

Aura Shards does an amazing job at getting rid of enchantments and artifacts.

You kind of have a sacrifice theme going so I'd suggest Mortician Beetle. It doesn't look like much but this unassuming little creature can get big quickly, especially when paired with my second suggestion Carrion Feeder. Sac outlets are never a bad thing in EDH. With Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos you can clear boards pretty easily with the amount of tokens you have. Also Phyrexian Altar + Gravecrawler + one of those two and your opponents just won't have creatures.

Are you looking for suggestions? I see a few holes in here. Populate always felt a bit weak in EDH, but to each his own. Here are two suggestions to start ya off; Dictate of Erebos and the new card from Amok, Anointed Procession.

Hey! You did a great job. And under $50, that is awesome.
I don't have a whole lot of suggestions to make, you have a really solid start here. I would be interested in knowing how well Grim Haruspex works, it could be good for this. Token's will be the thing you are saccing the most, though you should have enough nontoken creatures to make it still pretty good. Asylum Visitor is another budget option I have seen people use, since it does a decent impression of Dark Confidant. I think its up to preference or how often you find yourself empty handed.
Also, I have found Lightning Bolt to be insanely powerful in this type of deck. So many times, you will be sitting just a few Artist triggers away from winning and you draw the bolt and it finishes the game. It may be worth trying to find room for the other 2.
Rally the Ancestors may have been a good choice, as your deck will be a tad bit slower than the original. Sometimes the extra couple turns can really help make your graveyard extra juicy.
As a budget version, you are going to be a little slower because of the lands, which may hurt against Infect and Affinity decks. The lack of Ghost Quarter will also hurt your game against Infect and Tron. But I think it was a good idea not to include them. Without fetches, getting your colors online is more important. Lack of Path to Exile will also hurt a bit against creature based combos. But aside from that, you should be good to go against most decks. You just need to find a sideboard that works for your meta. Think about stuff like Burrenton Forge-Tender, Tidehollow Sculler, Dictate of Erebos, Kataki, War's Wage, Ronom Unicorn, Wear / Tear, Terminate, Duress and Slaughter Games.
Anyways, these decks are a hell of a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy it!

Very unique deck, I like it! +1 from me.
Card suggestions I have for you:
These cards highlight a few things you'll always need to do in a game of commander: remove creatures, draw cards, punish your opponents and take things that don't belong to you haha.
