Hammer of Purphoros Discussion

Elvish Visionary has always been a great draw outlet for a common. I add it to any elf deck.

Nylea171: as a casual deck, your on the right track. You just want to work on ensuring that your deck is consistently curving out creatures. I would suggest removing Frontier Bivouac with no blue sources being in the deck. Some other changes I would suggest are:
Fanatic of Mogis: not enough devotion to red to be worthy of the 4 CMC slot.
Hammer of Purphoros: haste is a little slow at 3 CMC.
War-Name Aspirant: too dependent on your attacking the turn it is played.
+2: Elvish Visionary: draw is king in magic.
+1: Champion of Lambholt: having unblockable creatures is always a plus.

First of all I really like your Purhporos goblin tribal deck!
As you mentioned your deck is built to be closer to a 1 vs 1 Commander (French) deck, but still I want to suggest you some of the cards for more multiplayer game strategy that imho I think you should consider to add.
Analizing your deck I see some problems in too low count of draw engines. I think you need to maximize draw power cuz in current state after several board whipes you just be run out of gas.
Magus of the Wheel - 2nd greatest wheel spell in MTG, one minus it is not a goblin ;-)
Mikokoro, Center of the Sea - sometimes one card draw separates you from victory, you can easy cut one of your mountains for it.
Chandra, Torch of Defiance - best Chandra till date, provides card advantage, ramp and some board control.
Grenzo, Havoc Raiser - play enemy spells why not?
Herald’s Horn - cut your goblins cmc is already nice but it gives you addition chance to draw card wich is even more nicer!
Mana Crypt - expensive but cost all its money.
Ancient Tomb - nice land, cut mountain for it.
Herald’s Horn - was mentioned before.
Imperial Recruiter - I know it is expensive card but it can tutor 80% of all your creatures!
Gamble - saves me hundred of times! Offcorse it has drawback and you can discard what you was looking for, but still it is best tutor in red color.
Control & Others:
Chaos Warp - staple in EDH mono-red decks. Can help you remove any permanent from board especially nasty enchantments.
Fiery Confluence - easy best card from all Confluences imho.
Goblin Welder - why you dont use this one goblin? It is really nice artifact reviver and can sometimes force your opponnet to sacrifice powerfull artifact and return something less dangerous for his/her graveyard.
Quest for Pure Flame - cheap, can be fast charged and provide great damage boost for one turn.
kindred charge - I know you already think about adding this one to the board, must be auto include imho.
Cards I think you need to cut out:
Goblin Balloon Brigade - too weak.
Mardu Scout - same as above.
Ensnaring Bridge - can be nombo with all your pumped out goblins.
Hammer of Purphoros - you already have enough haste engines imho.
Apocalypse - cool and savage card used it in my Purphoros deck too, but drop it out cuz never really want to play it and it is almoust impossible to win after you use it.
Goblin War Strike - you can damage only one player.
Mogg Alarm - worst goblin token producer from all your sorcery spells.
Reverberate - copy spells bad in aggresives style decks.
Smash to Smithereens - too weak in EDH.
Caterwauling Boggart - too high cmc.
P.S. Sorry for some grammar mistakes it was hell of amount of text to type ;-P

Fires of Yavimaya, Hammer of Purphoros, and Anger are the haste enablers i've been using. So far the one I'm least happy with has been Anger, he's not always in the grave and when I wanna go off and he's in my hand it feels bad, usually have to blow a bolt trigger on him or something. usaDiabetic, the Ulvenwald Hydra has been very good for me, performing excellently at blocking a scary looking Prossh, Skyraider of Kher, but mostly getting me my Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle or Gaea's Cradle and drawing 8+ cards with Rishkar's Expertise. Starsky2814, I think that the confluence-traverse trade is a fair one, i'll try it out when the set drops! On a side note of Fires of Yavimaya, One time my opponent tried to Earthquake for 5 but forgot I had the fires out, so I got to sac it to pump Omnath so he lived, then the player received a face full of lightning bolts. Felt real good I've got to say.

Hows Tibalt going? Hammer of Purphoros gives haste if your Commander isn't in play.

I love this! but if you want to keep the creatureless theme you need some more burn/draw cards likeBloodchief Ascension , Quest for the Nihil Stone , Shrieking Affliction , Liliana's Caress , Pyromancer Ascension, Trespasser's Curse, Vessel of Malignity ,Waste Not Everlasting Torment, (MAYBE (prob not) Imminent Doom)),Megrim, Necrogen Mists, Phyrexian ArenaUnderworld Dreams , Endless Whispers, Leyline of the Void, Magmatic Core, Spiteful Visions, Torment of Scarabs, Exquisite Blood, Gibbering Descent ,or if creatures are ok here are a couple ideas Genju of the Spires ,Satyr Firedancer , Hammer of Purphoros, Awaken the Ancient

I feel like Daretti, Scrap Savant isn't a good fit here. You have a grand total of 11 artifacts, so the -2 and -10 abilities are less useful here. Maybe consider Nahiri, the Harbinger as a replacement, if you can afford it? All of her abilites are relevant. Same with Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip and her flipside.
Eldrazi Monument is good for protection, evasion, and as a form of sac outlet. Behind the Scenes feels like it'll be good but always seems a bit lackluster to me. I'd prefer Whispersilk Cloak or Rogue's Passage for evasion. I think I would rather have Swiftfoot Boots than the Hammer of Purphoros.
Victimize is great for getting good creatures back out of your graveyard. And Gift of Immortality is good for abusing ETB or self-sacrificing triggers (I had it enchanted on a Selfless Spirit once and it was nice being almost permanently indestructible. Another time I had it equipped to Kami of Ancient Law and was able to pretty much wipe the field of bothersome enchantments.)

Haste enablers are great in omnath. They really speed up the Deck's clock.
Concordant Crossroads, and its red color shifted version Mass Hysteria, are also great due to their low cmc, but you want to hold them till the turn you dump a ton of elementals. I have won starting the turn with zero creatures thx to those enchantments
