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

I main Purphoros so I can offer a little sage advice.

TBH you can safely cut most of the pain enchantments like Burning Earth, Spellshock et al. This is because Purph himself IS a house of pain which is why the Narset player most likely targeted you. Instead focus on creatures that produce tokens (i.e. Beetleback Chief, Krenko, Mob Boss, Siege-Gang Commander, Pia and Kiran Nalaar ect.) and/or Instants/Sorceries that likewise focus on tokens (i.e. Hordeling Outburst, Krenko's Command, Dragon Fodder, Kuldotha Rebirth ect.). The great thing with Purph is that he doesn't care about what kinds or tokens you make but I think you'd get the most mileage with goblins simply due to their relative ease of production and synergy with others like Skirk Prospector, Goblin Recruiter, Moggcatcher, ect.

You can also go combo if you'd like utilizing Dualcaster Mage and either Heat Shimmer/Twinflame to create infinite Dualcaster Mages and damage via Purph. Norin the Wary is just brutal with Genesis Chamber. Grinning Ignus is an all star here too.

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.

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).

After a few rounds of playtesting, Ravager is bad. Grinning Ignus with Cinder Pyro could be.. cute, but not my top pick. Arc Runner could be playable, although it will most likely be chump blocked.

acht_deck_manager, hey. I used to have Goblin Sharpshooter in the deck, but without a guarantee kill for him (like with Basilisk Collar) there wasn't a good point to have him out. He would just sit and look cool.


Hellrider is a cool card. But I would rather have him in a deck that attacks often to make the most of him, like a Krenko, Mob Boss attack deck, then a spawn token deck like this. I think it's mostly cause my pods tend to have a lot, a lot of boardwipes.


I did also have Empty the Warrens here in my deck at one point, but with the cost of the spell, trying to storm without going broke, is pretty tough. It's an amazing card with Grinning Ignus, that's for sure!


Lots of good cards, it's tough to think of what to switch out for possible change. Good thoughts.

I would include some spells to draw huge lots of cards, for example Rishkar's Expertise, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur... Hardened Scales and Forgotten Ancient to get Counters on Animar faster...maybe Berserk to go for a quick kill with commander dmg after repeatedly casting stuff like Dream Stalker, which can bounce himself (there are some creatures that can bounce themselves or other creatures, when they come into play, I would include all of These instead of some other rather irrelevant creatures). Cloudstone Curio already does that but you better have more such effects in the deck. Maybe include Aluren for even more combo approach (you know how to play with Imperial Recruiter?). Grinning Ignus makes infinite mana with Aluren and it can be cast over and over again for without any help

giving your creatures haste would also be fine. Concordant Crossroads maybe, because you don't really care about helping the opponents when you swing with a shitload of colourless creatures after one huge draw...and it costs only 1 mana.
