AlmightyTentacle on Fire From Olympus: Purphoros EDH

Hi, Hybrow

Thank you for comment and suggestions!

Mana Geyser - mana never been too much problem for the deck, my playgroup is mostly three players so this one doesnt work well.

Grinning Ignus - nombo with too many cards like Spellshock, Eidolon of the Great Revel, Pyrostatic Pillar.

Warchief Giant - too high cmc and as I say before my palygroup is mostly three players.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle - nice land, several times was in maybeboard but it enters battlefield tapped and it is too much if you ask my oppinion.

Descent of the Dragons - not bad card was in deck at early stages but was dropped out cuz almost everytime was used as Mogg Infestation wich is plain better.

Hanweir Battlements - here for haste ability cuz I dont like Hall of the Bandit Lord - enters tapped, Flamekin Village - have same problem as Hall.

Hanweir Garrison - was in deck before but was cut cuz too be really effective it needs haste and most time it was just one creature drop for .

I also run a The Fat Red Line - Purphoros EDH .. however mine is based on pumping out tokens. Usually end up going down in a blaze of glory with the whole table against me. I noticed you were moving away from the usually Purphy deck, but thought i would give my suggestions anyways.

Mana Geyser -- Dont know how hard up for mana you end up being, seems like you have a lot more sac outlets for mana then I run, but it's is great if you are playing 3 or 4 people per game.

Grinning Ignus -- one I was turned on to recently, with enough mana you can bounce him back and forth. Almost as good as Norin. (would work great with a bunch of goblins and your Phyrexian Altar)

Warchief Giant -- if you are playing 5 people to a table, this guy is great for Purphoros damage, if you generally play 1v1, never mind :)

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle -- Little expensive for a land, but it has worked well for me.

Descent of the Dragons - Being able to turn a field of goblins into a field of dragons might be nice, and you get to pick the creatures, and you get more Purphoros damage

Also, I had a question, you run Hanweir Battlements, but not Hanweir Garrison... Why? I was considering them, so was wondering

Try adding ramp cards like Grinning Ignus, Neheb, the Eternal or maybe Mana Cache.

Thx for all suggestions you done so far comrade!

  • Dualcaster Mage combo - as I say early - "I try to avoid using infinite combos building my decks." Especially when your deck is mono-color (Black is an exception imho) its quite hard to tutor combo pieces.

  • Mob Rule & Insurrection - dont quite fit the deck theme and too mana heavy.

Thx for upvote comrade!

GoodLuckGuy

Thx for upvote comrade!

  • Mana Echoes - great card, but not here. There is simply not enough goblins ;-)

Love it, +1 from me! Check out Grinning Ignus and Aftershock btw. The latter is a great utility spell while Ignus combos with Purphoros and turns on Storm engines with Empty the Warrens and Volcanic Awakening.

If you're going storm then I'd add Infernal Plunge,Mana Geyser,Seething Song and Brightstone Ritual to help with storming. Also Mana Flare and Grinning Ignus if you need more storm counters.

Good evening, thegigibeast, NarejED, sonnet666, and everyone here. Its been a while, but Im ready to resubmit my Purphoros, God of the Forge deck again.


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 alone. 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 (as you'd hardly ever spend 9 mana to cast that card). I've also changed up a third of the deck by adding Snow-Covered Mountain and and made it more defensive against other competitive decks. 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 Terminus.


I hope that you would consider checking to see if my deck is worth joining the list here. Or any comments/suggestions. Thank you for your time.

I like it. You have the Kiki-Jiki+Zealous Conscripts combo, but if you add Ruby Medallion, then you can infinite combo with Grinning Ignus too (kick it off for R), which people are less likely to be on the lookout for
