oh yea forgot to mention that Flameshadow Conjuring lets Grinning Ignus go infinite

Actually have a Panharmonicon as it goes and would be nice with this deck's CiPer's too. But it's doing far dirtier things over here.

I am sure Grinning Ignus was in an early draft of the deck and was cut for something else that I forget. Probably will try him again.

Thank's for the interest and suggestions!

I dont know how heavily you lean on Purphoros' 2 damage ETB effect, but Panharmonicon is great for doubling that damage.

Grinning Ignus - Mid game you can get him out quite a few times in a turn. And leave that one mana spare in case of boardwipe.

I just discovered this guy for my Purphoros Deck - The Fat Red Line

You can take a look for more suggestions, but i think we are running a lot of the same stuff.

Have you considered adding Impact Tremors? Also since you are in mono-red, Grinning Ignus could really up your damage output with Purphoros and Warstorm Surge. Creatures with dash can help here too.Squee, Goblin Nabob would also be something I would consider.

Grinning Ignus is another staple that belongs here. Another card draw effect that I like is Humble Defector, and if you can get Homeward Path as well it's so much better.

If you want some creatures that can deal a lot of combat damage thanks to Purphoros triggers, War Elemental and Chandra's Spitfire are great choices.

ay.lobo ... I saw Grinning Ignus in your deck. I am going to add it and remove Lightning Bolt. As much as I like it, its only 3 damage and only once.

Ruby Medallion is a maybe.. I dont find i am mana dead very often with this deck.. and late game, i could still play Grinning a bunch in one turn.

Faithless Looting is not a terrible option either.. Pharagax Giant is also on the fence for me, so might be one I can trade out.

Hey Hybrow. I do see what you mean when you say you run a different play with me. Hmm... Adding that, have you considered Grinning Ignus and Ruby Medallion? Separately, they can benefit you greatly, and together, they can keep on pinging Purphoros ability. Since you play Squee, you could use looting cards like Faithless Looting to keep him in your hand.

That's why I liked Grinning Ignus, but I was trying to get an infinite combo where I was able to generate that and do that infinitely, RoarMaster.
