Legion Loyalist Discussion
22 hours ago
If you want to be a fast red deck, I think you should just go all in on goblins. That can be hard if you're trying to go budget, Goblin Guide costs an arm and a leg. Still, it opens you up to cards like Goblin Chieftain, Goblin Piledriver, Foundry Street Denizen, and Goblin Rabblemaster, to name a few. Legion Loyalist is also solid.
You shouldn't worry about cards like Tormenting Voice. Card filtering shouldn't be a priority with this deck, just deal as much damage as you can, as quickly as you can. That's regardless of whether or not you go goblin tribal. Blood Moon is also perfect for this deck, it's good against most matchups, but it is also expensive.
As for instant and sorcery spells, limit the amount you have. You might be super attached to certain ones, but really, the Lightning Bolt's and Goblin Grenade's are all you need. I suppose Dragon Fodder and Hordeling Outburst are fine, but there are certainly better cards to run. It all comes down to money really.
Also, Sulfuric Vortex isn't modern legal. Hope this helps, good luck.

Here are some suggestions off the top of my head. You are at 63 cards. And I'm fairly sure we've had the 60 card discussion before. :D
Consider the following changes:
-1 Bomber Corps
-1 Lightning Strike
-1 Thunderous Wrath
That drops you to 60 without any major changes to the the deck.
Here are some other cards I want you to consider:
Crash Through and Faithless Looting for card draw.
You are going to need a sideboard for more competitive environments. And the sideboard also works for testing maybe cards. Take a look at Legion Loyalist, Stonewright, Tormod's Crypt, Electrostatic Bolt, Smelt, Shattering Spree, Shattering Blow, Monastery Swiftspear, Skullcrack, Collateral Damage, Barrage of Expendables, Pyrite Spellbomb and Searing Blood as either main or sideboard cards.
3 Tormod's Crypt
2 Searing Blood
2 Shattering Blow
3 ???, not sure on this one.
Let me know what you think.

and Legion Loyalist maybe in sideboard vs aggro or token decks

I like having the 0-drop artifacts, so Bone Saw could replace Welding Jar in that sense. I've also been considering Ghostfire Blade, but I only have 8 colorless creatures so it might be a tiny bit risky.
EDIT: 11 colorless creatures not 8. I can't count.

Well, that's a cool deck and I get the idea. Never seen a spell slinger kind of playstyle on Purphoros, that's unique.
First things first, I think, you're lacking three major components: ramp, mass removal and utility lands. Three rocks just aren't enough and I wouldn't call cards like Ashnod's Altar, Chandra, Torch of Defiance and Grinning Ignus ramp. They all generate mana but not reliably and/or consistently enough. I suggest you add at least: Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, Wayfarer's Bauble, Ruby Medallion and maybe even Thran Dynamo. Oh, and Caged Sun is far better than Gauntlet of Power, imo. For removal I'd definetly add Blasphemous Act as it is THE red staple mass removal and it's definetly better than Mizzium Mortars. Nevinyrral's Disk can be good as well, since it's very hard to deal with enchantments in mono-red and rattlesnake effects are never bad. As far as lands are concerned I would definetly add Myriad Landscape. Other land considerations are: Strip Mine (or on a budget Ghost Quarter), Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and Mirrorpool.
Depending on your meta and budget you should consider follwing cards:
- Feldon of the Third Path
- Dualcaster Mage
- Mimic Vat
- Myr Battlesphere
- Tempt with Vengeance (great win con in Purphoros)
Cards I'd cut:
- Mizzium Mortars: seems bad
- Swiftfoot Boots: in a token strategy and with an indestructible commander Lightning Greaves should be enough
- Shared Animosity and Legion Loyalist: can be good but this deck doesn't seem to rely on attacks at all, rather Kiki combo or just burn
- Thornbite Staff: too slow, imo
- Sword of Feast and Famine: well it's value, but I don't know if it does enough in this deck
- Grinning Ignus: I see why he is in here but I can't imagine hm being super usefull
Hope this is a help.

Have you considered adding Goblin Rabblemaster, Goblin Wardriver, Mogg War Marshal (Great with Impact Tremors!) or Legion Loyalist? All of them are really good. If you have some extra money you definitely should get 4x Goblin Guide. Also get some Lightning Bolts for burn and have Skullcrack in SB against decks with life gain. One fun gimmick in my goblin deck is Quest for the Goblin Lord, you'd be amazed how often you get 5 quest counters on it! If you have a legion loyalist out as well you basically win. I don't really see what Throne of the God-Pharaoh contributes to the deck?

I wouldn't underestimate the power of Ranger of Eos because you need norin and sisters and possibly some oher 1 drops. In my deck he is even better because he also gets Lightning Berserker. Norin sisters depends on synergy between many different pieces and eos improves consistency a lot. I actually added Magma Jet in place of Lightning Bolt because the scry also helps get all the synergy pieces.
When mentor of the meek is allowed to stick, it is a bomb. It is easy to remove, though. So I often sideboard it. Eos alredy did work on cast while meek needs to sit there while you have open mana to use to impact the game.
There are many different ways to go with Norin sisters. My advice is to try proxy playtesting.
I see a definite difference between the norin sisters beater win strategy with legion loyalist and no genesis chamber vs the dd with tremors/purphoros and yes to the genesis chamber (because you aren't trying to connect for damage - that is auto triggered). The 2 different decks share a base of norin, sisters, eos, and things like bolt/path but then they branch off, essentially trying to do totally different things to win.

guessling I think if I were to put Impact Tremors in I'd probably drop the Champion of the Parish. I'd also think about swapping the Ranger of Eos for Mentor of the Meek. The Legion Loyalist is a good call but I have trouble deciding what to cut something for it.
