Firecat Blitz Discussion

Where is your Amulet of Vigor? It is great with all of your "search for basic land. It enters the battlefield tapped" stuff. Plus, when you have it and Perilous Forays with your Omnath, Locus of Rage you get to search out all of your basics and deal damage for each basic you search for.
I also find all of the "each player sacs x lands" spells mighty juicy in decks that land ramp pretty hard. Ex. Wildfire
Finally, since your deck wants to off it's own creatures and to ramp into big spells, I would suggest Ashnod's Altar

ay.lobo: I think n0bunga summed it up pretty nicely. And while some of the cards I recommended are dead draws against certain decks, the important thing is that stop the decks that stop you. And for you, that is absoultely blue decks. Not only are they best suited to dealing with your commander (via bounce spells like Chain of Vapor) but are also the main thing that shut's down your game ending seplls, like Firecat Blitz.
On top of that, you absolutely want to be running Mox Diamond, just like you want to be running Mana Vault. The key to your deck is speed. You need to get down Purphoros as quickly as possible so he can start doing his thing. Both of the aforementioned cards help in doing that. Mana Vault is an outright turn 2 Purphoros. Extraplanar Lens however is a turn 3 play in hte hope that you have 6 mana turn 4. Or it eats a removal spell (see Fragmentize, Nature's Claim, Chain of Vapor, Abrupt Decay, etc) and you're left negative resources. At least a Mox Diamond diamond getting destroyed doesn't put you back on boardstate resources (other than itself). And yes, it sucks to draw ramp late game. But that's the game you play. That's the game we all play.
On your last point, I can't say with a huge level of authority whether Purphoros is better suited to a combo build of whether he's better as a token swarm deck. And I have no problems with you saying that a token build is the way to go. But my concern is that your deck is still lacking in certain spots (mainly the aforementiond cards) and I'm reluctant to swap one suboptimal deck for another. It's why even though this list has had a bunch of Saskia the Unyielding submissions, a decklist is still needed as none of them were at the level required.

JuQ: Wow, that's incredible!! Tempt with Vengeance is an absolutely genius pick, Firecat Blitz is 100% budget friendly, and I see that Goblin Bombardment is back down in price a bit too. And Blade of Selves? Jesus, it never occurred to me!! Imma see what I can do to incorporate some of these. If you have any suggestions for cuts, I'm all ears.

If you like to create many small elementals you can also use Tempt with Vengeance and Firecat Blitz which actually create elemental cats. I advise to use together with some mass sacrifice outlet such as Ashnod's Altar, Goblin Bombardment or you can just kill them yourself with Goblin Sharpshooter or Subterranean Spirit.
If you like fireworks and you play free for all games Blade of Selves on Omnath, Locus of Rage really make an explosive combo, but it is a bit tricky. The Omnath copies go to the graveyard at the same time as soon as they are created without anyonene getting priority (legendary rule). Then each of those deaths will trigger once on each Omnath that was alive in that very brief moment. So with four players (in free for all) you would create two additional Omnath that would die and trigger six times for a total of 18 points of damage, isn't that fun? The number of triggers increases exponentially with the number of tokens, so if you are playing with more than four players or you happen to have parallel lives on the battlefield you can easily kill one or two players in that moment.
Sismir, for that Sundial of the Infinite trick to work you have to wait until your end step when the delayed triggered ability that says "exile those tokens" is on the stack, then is when you activate the Sundial to end your turn. If you activate it before your end step the delayed triggered will still occur on the next end step, in this scenario means the end step of the next turn.
This way you can trap a commander in the exile forever if you flicker it (with something like Otherworldly Journey) and then you counter or exile the delayed trigger that would bring it back at the beginning of your end step.

Have you considered Blade of Selves? When you equip it to Omnath you will get more fireworks than in the 4th of July (providing you are playing free for all multiplayer).
It works this way. When you attack with Omnath equiped with the Blade of Selves you'll chose to make a copy for each other opponent, those copies are created at the same time and are legendary so they are all put in the graveyard at the same time tiggering 3 damage times each death and each Omnath on the battlefield when they died.
So lets say you are playing a 4 player game, you attack with Omnath equipped with the Blade of Selves and create two more Omnath tokens which go to the graveyard as soon as they touch the battlefield. Two elementals died while there were three Omnaths, that means you get six triggers of 3 points of damage to a target for a total of 18 damage. With each additional player the number of triggers increases exponentially, it's really fun!
You can also run Parallel Lives which go great because it is a token deck (and also synergizes with the blade of selves awesomely).
Tempt with Vengeance, Tilonalli's Summoner and Firecat Blitz will create many small Elementals (Firecat Blitz was updated and now it creates really cute Elemental Cats) that if you have some way to kill them (I.E. the Ashnod's Altar you already run) they will grant you cheap Omnath triggers.

Norin the Wary would have found his way in here if he was a goblin. As it is right now I'm not sure that he is a necessary inclusion. Tooth and Claw and Firecat Blitz just didn't fit the Tribal theme either. Firecat Blitz when compared to Kindred Charge was a pretty easy choice.

I want to apologize, it took me so long to reply to your comment.
Firecat Blitz I prefer keep it in wishboard cuz it have big drawback, I only use it when I 100% sure it can whipe my opponents away.
