Hammer of Purphoros Discussion

multimedia on Demon's Chaos

Hey, consider adding a reanimation strategy as an alternative way to get Demons onto the battlefield?

Buried Alive , Faithless Looting and Gamble are upgrades for enablers to get Demons into your graveyard. Buried gives you complete control over what Demons you search for and put into your graveyard. Looting can be used two times because of flashback. Animate Dead , Dance of the Dead and Victimize are low mana cost cards to reanimate a Demon. This package of six cards can do a lot for your deck.

Consider Hammer of Purphoros , Urabrask the Hidden and Anger ? Most Demons don't have haste which means that they can't attack or really do much the turn you play them. Anger is good with Buried or Looting to put it into your graveyard. Consider Rakdos Signet and Talisman of Indulgence ? More two drop mana rocks. Consider Chaos Warp ? It's a staple instant removal spell in Commander.

For the manabase here's some budget lands ($3 or less each) to consider: Command Tower , Foreboding Ruins , Smoldering Marsh , Ash Barrens , Grixis Panorama , Jund Panorama , Shadowblood Ridge , Tainted Peak and Graven Cairns . All these lands can ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • 5x Swamp
  • Rakdos Guildgate
  • Bloodfell Caves
  • Rupture Spire
  • Gateway Plaza
  • Demonspine Whip
  • Rakdos Keyrune
  • Rakdos Locket
  • Dreamstone Hedron
  • Curse of Bloodletting
  • Grave Betrayal
  • Smash
  • Disrupt Decorum
  • Recover
  • Ancient Craving
  • Goblin Lore
  • Tormenting Voice

Good luck with your deck.

If you're looking for more cards that gain life before combat, Sunspring Expedition and Gonti's Machinations are cheap, useful enchantments to have too.

I see you already include Slayers' Stronghold . However, if you have the budget for it Hall of the Bandit Lord is a great haste enabler. Fervor , Anger , Hammer of Purphoros , and/or Urabrask the Hidden may be useful to include too.

Some fun cards to run are like Patriarch's Bidding , Corpse Dance , Mimic Vat , Urza's Incubator , and The Immortal Sun . Running some rituals in these types of decks doesn't hurt as well, either that or some haste enablers like Mass Hysteria , Fervor , or Hammer of Purphoros .

Fires of Yavimaya , Fervor , Hammer of Purphoros , Thousand-Year Elixir , etc. Are all really good haste enablers and at least one should probably be included to get more value from tap creatures.

Here’s a few card ideas that could really help this deck.

Any or all of the bottom 3 to bring back lands that are sacked if you use the hammer. The great thing bout the hammer is it provides all 3 card types needed to use any of of Shattergangs abilities. Also consider a few tutors to get to key cards you want earlier. Maybe Razaketh, the Foulblooded as well for more tutoring capabilities.

Thanks for the tips! You're making me very tempted to pick up some additional upgrades... If only I had the funds!

mrdehring:

Thanks for your suggestions! First of all, I'd like to mention that your comment prompted me to update my deck's intro! That said...

I've never heard of Fated Return , Soul of New Phyrexia , or Hammer of Purphoros . I think I will pick up a copy of them, especially since they're so affordable! Will need to think of what to cut, however.

I didn't put in Dragon's Hoard , because I was concerned about having too many mana rocks. Is that something you'd be concerned about too? If not, how many mana rocks would be considered too many?

You're right, Bring to Light was an artifact of my The Ur-Dragon Deck before it evolved into a Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck. I've been able to play this deck <5 times, and Bring to Light has come in clutch once where I used it to tutor for a Curiosity that closed out a game. It really is just a financially cheap (and mana-expensive) tutor though, and I would be happy to replace it with a Demonic Tutor if I could afford one. While I don't have enough games to say with certainty, I am hoping that Bring to Light has the potential to be slightly more useful flexible as a means of indirectly stockpiling mana before a combo-turn.

I recently added the combo cards you mentioned, but I haven't played enough games to comment on their consistency (this deck is slightly too expensive for my playgroup at the moment). If they end up being too clunky or situational then... you're right: I should cut them. Is that how they performed in your experience?

I haven't considered Niv-Mizzet, Parun , but it does look interesting. It looks like it would serve the same purpose as Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind , however, and the deck seems packed as is. Do you have any strong opinions on the matter?

I am considering cutting Ojutai, Soul of Winter and Scalelord Reckoner , because I haven't really gotten much use out of them so far. What do you think about those cuts?

Not quite sure what your budget is, but a reanimation package usually works well in a Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck. I always liked Fated Return for instant speed tricks or indestructible.

Speaking of indestructible Soul of New Phyrexia is a good card to make sure your board of scary dragons doesn't get wrath'ed away.

Another option to give you haste is Hammer of Purphoros

Mana rocks are good, drawing cards is good. I think the Dragon's Hoard should be in this to solve both issues.

I'm intrigued by Bring to Light in this deck. I guess it is a cheap tutor, but is seems limited. I would love you hear how you use it.

There are some fun combos pieces that work with different dragons Bear Umbra , Curiosity (are you planning to add Niv-Mizzet, Parun ?), and Tainted Strike ; are you able to get them to work that often? If not, they may be the cards to cut.
