Legendary Enchantment Creature — God
As long as your devotion to red is less than five, Purphoros isn't a creature.
Other creatures you control have haste.
: You may put a red creature card or an artifact creature card from your hand onto the battlefield. Sacrifice it at the beginning of the next end step.

Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded Discussion
1 day ago
Interesting. I've never seen a Brion Stoutarm deck before, and now I want one. If you want some ideas, then I suggest Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded, Reya Dawnbringer, Scuttling Doom Engine, Brought Back and/or Purphoros's Intervention. I have no idea what you would cut, but I hope this helps.

GoldenGolgari that is awesome to read, thank you!
I have considered Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded in this deck and at five mana for haste, it just doesn’t make it. I already find Ogre Battledriver too expensive for what it offers and I’m hoping Wizards gives us an upgrade to that card in time.
Underworld Breach is an extremely strong card and have seen it do some work in our playgroup in other cEDH decks. My playtesting has found it a dead card most of the time (graveyard is empty) as the build is focussed on winning as fast as possible with all the slots dedicated to that singular goal. If you can move some of the flex slots around to make the card operate I would love to hear how it performs for you. If you go that route, I would also recommend putting in the remaining enemy fetches and more card selection/draw to put fuel into the graveyard.

Hello, just wanted to thank you for being the inspiration that made me build Krenko in the first place. I've modeled most of my deck after yours and I wanted to ask, what's your opinion on Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded and Underworld Breach? I feel like the new Purphoros can be good in some situations but I have trouble justifying his mana cost, granted my forms of haste often get blown up anyway at my table so the cost might be worth it for indestructible. Also, Breach seems like a good comeback card to me personally though I haven't had the time to playtest it. Anyways, would be great to hear your opinion and thanks again, Krenko has turned into one of my more powerful and fun decks to play.

There are a few I don't dig in this style of deck but your environment would be different from mine.
I haven't played or interacted with Anax, Hardened in the Forge yet but he seems underwhelming. 3 toughness with no evasion or combat tricks makes it seem like he hits a chump blocker for a lot and then dies. While there is a decent smattering of 4 power creatures, the satyrs don't seem worth it.
Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded might be in for the haste but his activated ability only hits 33% of your creatures, not counting the artifacts. Out of the artifacts, you might want the majority around (i.e. Nullstone Gargoyle)
Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is cute but better suited for a fast deck.

Basically just "endstep". do a gatherer search for "endstep" in and see what you can find. Here are a few other good ones.
And that's just Enchantments I searched.

foxboy93 so many words! lol, kidding. When I first made the deck it was very artifact focused but over time I've lost a lot of that. Argent Sphinx sadly became very difficult to activate... Sanctum of Eternity actually is a decent inclusion since it is just a utility land. I still have a decent amount of room for those. Retrofitter is something I've wanted to include more of. That is abilities that make tokens. Given that Mairsil locks up most of my creatures Oona has been very helpful even when I'm not winning off of her. Prognostic Sphinx is interesting... I'll think on that one. Planar Bridge came out not too long ago. Very silly when I get a lot or even infinite mana going on but otherwise just really hard to make useful. I forget what replaced it.
I've also very much enjoyed doing things on everyone's turn. Haste has been such a great effect to have to help enable that. Anger and until recently Fervor were key pieces of my deck alongside AEtherling and other blink effects. I haven't gotten to test the change but I replaced Fervor with Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded. I'm really interested in seeing if I can take much advantage of his activated ability but he is really just here as an indestructible source of haste.

Looking good already.
- Possibility Storm To disrupt others, you can bypass it via Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded
- I don't think you need more than two rituals in this deck. Maybe add something like : Neheb, the Eternal, or maybe add Dockside Extortionist which can make a lot of treasures. If you can copy or bounce it even more!
- Personally I also like Shattering Spree for artifact destruction, because it is more flexible
- Strionic Resonator To copy some ETB?
- Cloudstone Curio to return and abuse ETB more.
- Hazoret's Monument, you don't cast creatures, but put in to play?
- Inferno Titan? Can target any target. If you can copy it, it will do a lot of damage
Maybe more card draw/advantage stuff like: - Combustible Gearhulk which could be very funny.
Some graveyard hate: - Soul-Guide Lantern
Extra combat? - Combat Celebrant; Could also give infinite combat phases with Kiki-Jiki
