Heat Shimmer Discussion

Zerail on Nin, the Eternal Host

May as well trade Increasing Vengeance for Dualcaster Mage for the combo with Heat Shimmer? Unless you need the graveyard interaction.

If you want to use the Brothers' ability, try Felhide Spiritbinder, Flamerush Rider, Flameshadow Conjuring, Heat Shimmer, Twinflame, Mimic Vat, Minion Reflector, Mirrorpool, Soul Foundry or Soul Separator.

Most of these are only temporary, so you could add Sundial of the Infinite to get around the EOT triggers.

As a singular entity, one Brother is not going to cut it unless you go voltron like you suggested. I think goodstuff.dec is where you want to be heading.

Flagellum on Some just want to watch the world burn

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.

This list looks very similar to my list of kiki-jiki; overall quite resilient and powerful. I would suggest, if you want to maximize your combo-tastic strategy, getting the new amonkhet mythic Combat Celebrant, which combos with kiki-jiki like zealous conscripts. Additionally, casting Heat Shimmer or Twinflame and copying it with Dualcaster Mage will win u the game, too. Keep up the good stuff, and have fun brealing mirrors!

I know it doesn't work with Heat Shimmer, but potentially Twinflame would let you copy both Abbot of Keral Keep and Dualcaster Mage repeatedly and triggering both their ETB abilities, unless I misread Twinflame.

Bhaal666 on Developing Consistency within League Restrictions

oh cool multiplayer competition. I do want to mention https://edhrec.com/ in case you don't know about it, pretty good resource for finding neat things.

Well then Sydri, Galvanic Genius + Aetherflux Reservoir is pretty solid. You need to gain a bit of life as you need a minimum of 51 to pull it off but animate the reservoir then give it deathtouch lifelink, pay 50 life, do 50 damage, rinse repeat. 4 man pod means you are not hitting the 5 times per turn loop limit either. 2 card combo and half the combo is in the command zone, your LGS may frown on this as it is infinite and they wanted to discourage infinite.

Zada, Hedron Grinder likes cards like Expedite, Titan's Strength, Heat Shimmer, Balduvian Rage, Young Pyromancer basically takes these silly small useless effects in commander and makes them totally nuts. you need other creatures but red gives goblins which quickly and easily pile up. down side is if zada isnt out a good portion of your effects become useless but you have redundancy from Mirrorwing Dragon and can run a token subtheme with Purphoros, God of the Forge. I dunno if it would be competitive in multiplayer you could certainly smash one person.

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is better for you then i was thinking since goad means they have to attack but cant attack you unless given no other options. grenzo, Bedlam, and goblin tribal will keep everybody swinging every turn and if you have enough goblins (or whatever you use) no one will be aloud to swing at you. Bonus is you can mill cards from opponents for each of your creatures that hit them and cast some stuff you mill off them.

Norin the Wary is chaotic, hilarious, and sometimes just plain cruel. etb triggers are key to this deck and norin is extremely hard to get rid of and cheap if he does die. Confusion in the Ranks, Warstorm Surge, Panharmonicon, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Grip of Chaos, Possibility Storm, Conjurer's Closet, Impact Tremors. these cards create a confusing board state so you may regret playing the deck if you are not well versed in the rules of the game, even if you are you may question your sanity. However norin would likely be the best of the red legends, the deck does like Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker but does not need it so you dont need to run infinite combos. with all the chaos and all the etbs going off the deck is very disruptive and people wont always know how to deal with it.

keep in mind going mono-red has its downsides, originally I assumed 1v1 which red does fine in as it is highly aggressive. In multiplayer being mono means you lack the ability to answer some things unless you want to include less efficient things like Spine of Ish Sah

I understand Zada, Hedron Grinder is a goblin, but there are no instants/sorceries in this list that work with her ability. I recommend some things like Titan's Strength, Heat Shimmer, and Screaming Fury. Otherwise, it looks pretty good! I wish you luck and some fun games ahead!
