Heat Shimmer Discussion

TheRedGoat on ☭ Mother Russia Burns ☭

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.

These are cards you should consider. Undying Flames is a crazy combo with this commander since it copies the epic trigger, Precursor Golem is a solid value card for this deck, Seize the Day is very strong and even more so if you can find a way to give vigilance or untap your creatures for more combats, Twinflame and Heat Shimmer will double up your creatures and allow you to alpha strike your opponents.

A few suggestions Seize the Day, Precursor Golem, Heat Shimmer, and a Siege-Gang Commander.

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.

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!
