Furnace of Rath Discussion

Thanks for the kind words Podma101! Mana doublers are great, but what I've discovered so far is that they're totally unnecessary wasted card slots in this deck. As you've noted yourself, Neheb can already generate such incredible amounts of mana that you can end up running out of cards to play. In that case, the mana doublers will serve no further purpose other than letting you reliably recast Neheb. Hopefully the deck will run smooth enough that that won't be a problem, but we'll see how it evolves with more testing. There's a good amount of card draw/advantage in here specifically because you can burn through your hand really quickly. And the only other X spell I want to include is Molten Disaster. I'm generally not a fan of X spells as they feel fairly boring and unsatisfying to win with. I'd rather play Coalhauler Swine+Stuffy Doll+Fortune Thief+Eldrazi Monument+Furnace of Rath into Blasphemous Act and watch all my opponents explode for 1 haha

Also, I love Leyline of Punishment and tried to run it, but I realized quickly that it nixed my protection from red coming from Akroma's Memorial and the two Swords of X and Y, which are key pieces to keeping my limited creatures from getting wiped out by my own symmetrical burn smells.

How about Fanatic of Mogis with Furnace of Rath? And then of course Boros Reckoner with Fanatic. Furnace would also give a nice double doubling with Reckoner trigger.

Have you thought about running Gratuitous Violence instead of Furnace of Rath.

Bitter Feud, Curse of Bloodletting, Overblaze, Fire Servant, Gratuitous Violence, Quest for Pure Flame and Furnace of Rath will do the trick too.

Desperate Gambit is quite good for, well, desperate situations.

Onward can double the creature's power, and thus, double the amount of damage dealt.

I'd probably go a little less focused on tribal and a little more towards token generation, for one. Only the best of the best though, so cards like Tempt with Vengeance and possibly even Descent of Dragons/Firecat Blitz.

I'd do a little bit of damage doubling with Quest for Pure Flame and Furnace of Rath probably. Sol Ring would be an automatic include. Norin the Wary and Chaos Warp would be definitely considered.

I usually play in a 3-4 player pod, so I'd basically make sure that I had enough fuel for a 6+ person pod. That means having the ramp, draw, and consistent damage on top of the low to the ground, aggro play style.

That's why I like my build though, because goblin tribal can get out of control super easy, which means that it keeps me from running out of gas early on like most other token-based decks. If I am top decking I will at least know that my goblins in play will have synergy with each other.

Love the deck. I built a budget Purphoros deck during a friends $100 challenge but I'm looking to upgrade it, and this is exactly what I was looking for. While a lot of your synergies were the same as mine, there's a handful of cards I ran and wanted to hear what you thought.

Arms Dealer, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Forgotten Cave, Furnace of Rath, Goblin Lookout, Goblin Offensive, Goblin Rally, Goblin Wizard, Norin the Wary, Skirk Fire Marshal, Smoldering Crater, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Fanatic of Mogis

I am a long time Aurelia player. I don't think Boros sucks at all. Here is my full analysis :)

How has your deck performed?

Ramping and Card draw are important, but thinking that you need to out ramp the green player, or outdraw the blue player is incorrect. You only need to draw and ramp enough to win the game. The key is finding solutions to your problems. Here are your best card draw options Wheel of Fortune, Skullclamp, Sword of Fire and Ice, Mask of Memory. Three of those cards can be easily tutored with Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory, Enlightened Tutor, Stoneforge Mystic, and Relic Seeker. Making sure you always have 1 or more of those will keep your hand full. Next is other ways to generate value Tithe, Land Tax, Gift of Estates, Armillary Sphere. AlsoNahiri, the Harbinger is a great because it lets you filter, or blow up problematic enchantments. Unless youre playing in highly competitive metas things like Howling Mine, Temple Bell, Horn of Greed are also playable. If your opponents already had more cards than you then what does it matter if you both draw. You will both be limited by the amount of mana you can spend casting, as opposed to the number of cards in hand. Then you get to a place where you are dropping threats, and they are playing more value based cards.

In the past I have also made the mistake of thinking I could go under everyone else at the table. This logic is great for 60 card formats, but less so for commander. What I have found is that even aggressive decks want to be able to go big when the game gets big. In standard agro decks you are trying to curve out and play creatures at every spot along the curve. This doesnt work out as well in practice in commander because of the mana rocks, and you just cant guarantee that youll have your 4 cmc on turn 4. Also once that first board wipe hits, now you're past 4 mana. My point here is you'll want to add some 6 and 7 drops. Heres some excellent choices Inferno Titan, Balefire Dragon, which works great cause you already have a lot of haste, Tyrant's Familiar and the must include Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Dragon Mage is something I am testing out currently. I would up your land count a bit, 38-40, and I like to have about 3 creatures in the 7 cmc slot with 3-6 creatures in the 6cmc slot. Some other things that I think I would at least take a look are Crescendo of War Furnace of Rath Gratuitous Violence Relentless Assault World at War.

Obviously I mentioned a lot of things to add, unfortunately that means we have to cut some things. Obviously cut cards that perform the worst. I'll make some guesses about which cards don't pull their weight. Creatures: Akroan Hoplite Archetype of Aggression Iroas's Champion Mentor of the Meek and maybe Legion Loyalist. It seems like these probably just get swept up in board wipes. For the double damage, double combat stuff I might look at subbing out Dictate of Heliod Glory of Warfare, or you could cut from other places and just run all of them. Faith's Reward doesnt seem great to me, I would cut or replace with Boros Charm

Let me know what you think. You can check out one of my Aurelia decks here http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/04-01-17-aurelia-the-warleader/

Cryptolith Fragment  Flip is insane - mana rock and 3 mana each turn with your general.

Furnace of Rath doubles all damage, not just from creatures, so double the mana each turn.

Sunscorched Desert is a free ping and 1 mana, and the colorless shouldn't be too much of a liability with all your artifacts. Not sure if there are enough instants and sorceries to justify Pyromancer's Goggles, but it's certainly a cool card.

And as for the ruling question, afflict unfortunately triggers once per combat, regardless of how many blockers, because all the blockers are declared simultaneously so it's technically blocked only once.

Good luck:)
