Dragon Broodmother kann nicht dein Commander sein, Alternativen fuer ne Lifegain / Token / Devour Strategie waeren:

Empfehle ausserdem Karten die nix mit dem Lifegain / Token / Devour Theme zu tun haben (wie z.B. Flameblast Dragon, Radha, Heir to Keld etc.) zu replacen:

I would recommend scrapping two cards, specifically:

  • Hostility because there are only three direct damage spells in your deck (not including copy spells). It's also pretty hefty on the CMC.
  • Since you are also running a looser tribal shell (with the inclusions of elementals, dragons, hellions, etc), I think that Kindred Charge isn't quite strong enough for its CMC. I would probably recommend scrapping that because it optimistically will only deal around 20 damage (I know, that's still not bad, but it isn't lethal and it's still fairly optimistic). I would either scrap that, or scrap Descent of the Dragons and Hellion Eruption, but those two I think are more powerful cards.

I would definitely recommend adding these:

  • Moggcatcher for more tutor power and protecting your creatures by not "casting" them. Even if you aren't in a super controlling meta, it's always good to make your creatures harder to deal with.
  • Quest for Pure Flame because it is essentially a Gratuitous Violence for 1 mana. It's super easy to set up, and you can pop it out of nowhere. Right before a big Descent of the Dragons or a Krenko, Mob Boss activation seems nice to me.
  • Goblin Bombardment is also really nice. It can sometimes give you the last bit of damage you need to seal out a victory, or it can be crucial in response to an opponent's board wipe/wrath. I don't know if that is a common thing in your play group or not, but it could be worth considering!

Really, there isn't anything bad with this deck at all! Those are just some things you might want to consider, but if not then the deck will still be fine! The last thing that I would suggest is just trimming down the fat (the avg. CMC). The lower your curve, the more you get to play. If you want a hyper aggro build, I would try to trim the CMC down to around >3.0.

As always, feel free to ask me any questions you have! I love helping out fellow red mages! :)

Love the deck, really want to build a Sek'Kuar deck, im too afraid to sac my lands though. Would Hellion Eruption work in this deck, the problem would then be giving them haste I guess.

Hey Darrell this is Austin. I haven't really gone through what should replace what but just a list of what to take out and to add in. The cards that are going on the add list should help speed the deck up and cards that should be taken out are either to slow or just not as good as other cards that are on the add list. Now it's your deck so you do what you want, but these cards should help out a lot. Alright here we go.

Take out:1. Akki Drillmaster2. Aligned Hedron Network3. Banefire4. Faithless Looting5. Flameshadow Conjuring6. Frenzied Goblin7. Goblin Assault8. Goblin Bushwhacker9. Goblin Diplomats10. Goblin Guide11. Goblinslide12. Grenzo, Havoc Raiser13. Hellion Eruption14. Lightning Bolt15. Manabarbs16. Mizzium Mortars17. Mountain18. Mountain19. Need for Speed20. Ogre Battledriver21.

NarejED, thank you for the quick response. (Also, thank you Dunadain for the props!) It does seem initially that our decks run similarly. However, note that freakingShane has quite a goblin theme to it, and mine focuses with other creatures that create tokens. I do have a higher curve, but that is mostly due to having Blasphemous Act and draw power which throws the CMC count off. All in all, myself and freakingShane have chosen different ways to represent Purphoros.


There is a good point for more artifact destruction. I am considering Vandalblast, however I do NOT think that Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx should be included in a Purphoros deck, mostly for the fact that I do not want a devotion high enough for the Commander to become a creature (more susceptible to removal by cards like Path to Exile or even Hellion Eruption).


Hmm, can't do much about that tier placement. Haha, just wanted to have a discussion on his placing. Whichever ways it goes, he just can't be underestimated. I figure it wouldn't hurt to see how my deck compares here, since it's been a bit popular lately.
