I agree with snotice on everything. In fact I would have mentioned taking Frontier Bivouac out but that one slipped me. It is late here. lol

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

A replacement for Fanatic of Mogis could be the Xenagos I mentioned or I find Duskwatch Recruiter to be a solid card.

I can't think of a good replacement for Hammer of Purphoros. Fervor and Fires of Yavimaya are the same CMC.

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:

+2: Elvish Visionary: draw is king in magic.

+1: Champion of Lambholt: having unblockable creatures is always a plus.

Hi, freakingShane

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.

Card advantage:


  • 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:

Cards I think you need to cut out:

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 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.

Cathartic Reunion, Tormenting Voice, and Wheel of Fate are good effects for pitching/looting to get good card draw while filling your graveyard.

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.)

Some neat inclusions though. How well does Disciple of Bolas work for you? I had mixed feelings on it. I have an Alesha deck you could check out: Alesha of the Undying Horde

Haste enablers are great in omnath. They really speed up the Deck's clock.

If you ever add Titana, Protector of Argoth (which i also recommend), Hammer of Purphoros is a great one for the added land sacrifice ability.

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
