Nice deck! I used to run Zada and she was great fun.

If you aren't opposed to going infinite, Dualcaster Mage goes infinite with both Heat Shimmer and Twinflame.

that was the original version of the legend rule, but it would result in both going to their owners graveyards, but they changed the rule in 2013 to be more player specific and less punishing (also stops Heat Shimmer from being a removal spell)


"704.5k. If A player controls two or more legendary permanents with the same name, THAT player chooses one of them..."

How about adding Heat Shimmer to bolster your token creation. And it doubles up as a win con with Dualcaster Mage Two Twinflames are better than one

I always thought that Precursor Golem would be more amusing when paired with cards like Survive the Night, Confront the Unknown, Heat Shimmer, and Soul's Fire.

Perhaps to make it Golem Tribal with other golem creatures, like Keeper of the Lens, Solemn Simulacrum, Glassdust Hulk? From sacrificing Clue tokens, Salvage Titan should be free to cast.

I don't know...just brainstorming.

I have a Purphoros EDH deck myself that's primarily token generation for kills. My list on Tapped Out is very out of date though. Depending on how competitive you want be, have you considered the card Heat Shimmer? It's a two card infinite creatures combo with Dualcaster Mage. I had it myself for a while until I decided my deck being too powerful made my friends kinda hate me.

That's a fair point about the dash cards. I hadn't known you'd already tried a few.

As for infinite combos, the one I had been thinking of was with Dualcaster Mage and either Twinflame or Heat Shimmer. I can understand not using the sorceries, since you do say you're not attacking, but what would you think of using the wizard?

On a different note, have you tested out and creature stealing effects like Mob Rule or Insurrection in combination with Goblin Bombardment? I'm not sure where'd you cut for those, but I do feel like Goblinslide can replace one of your small time token generators like Dragon Fodder or Hordeling Outburst as another oddball suggestion.

Rando sorcery suggestions. I'm not sure if mechanics work the way I assume, so some of these may be worse or better than I initially assumed. Press into Service, Chandra's Ignition, Seize the Day, Rekindled Flame, Panic Attack, Make Mischief, Heat Shimmer, Harness by Force, Wave of Indifference, Firestorm, Assault Strobe, Collective Defiance, Needle Drop, Aleatory.
