Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded

Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded

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

DadHumanPraetor on "Menace" to Society

Have you considered Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite at your top end? Its a pretty brutal card I run in my Iroas deck. I also run things like Cavalier of Flame and Urabrask the Hidden Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded to enable haste. I think the 99 can be built so many different ways its alnost not worth listing cards if its just a combat deck. I have a few combo lines as alt win cons and a light stax/control theme. Lots of wraths. I also run a lot of 2 drop mana rocks so I can put Iroas out on turn 3 most games, then play a Day of Judgment or Shatter the Sky or Wrath of God on T4. Even with a more combat focused build (I have rebuilt Iroas several times trying to make him good) I find it awkward trying to find a time to cast him after T3 because the deck is full of 4 and 5 drops that you want to get on the field.

I think that Felhide Spiritbinder deserves a closer look. There are no ways in the deck to take take advantage of his untap ability besides just attacking. I know this deck wants to make tokens, and this seems like the worst ability that does that, that deal non combat damage with effects, so perhaps something like Furnace of Rath or Dictate of the Twin Gods could be nice instead.

Stalking Vengeance seems to cost to much for the effect on a card that is easily interacted with. For the same mana cost you could run Vicious Shadows. It has the upsides of triggering on all creature deaths and being an enchantment which is harder to interact with than a creature.

Finally, Fires of Yavimaya seems like a cut to me. Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded could be an interesting choice here. It has pretty decent synergy with the decks general plan and grants haste to your bois. Samut, Tyrant Smasher seems a bit better as well.

Coward_Token: I'm slowly making the deck more creature heavy, so I might exchange the two of them later on!

zulado: I used to have Drownyard Temple in the deck but the cost felt like it was too much each time, and there's little space for colorless utility lands so I'd rather have other card take the sacrificial role for Vaevictis. There's too little benefit from trample with Dragon Fangs, while haste is a huge benefit from Dragon Breath. Thanks for the suggestions though!

VorelNailo: Splendid Reclamation along with Life from the Loam would be the first cards I'd put in if I ever scrapped my "only permanents" restriction! The other cards fits well with a creature token strategy, which this deck doesn't have. Though I'd like to put in more non-creature token generators because Oath of Druids is a pet card of mine and having it putting out heavy threats is awesome.

king-saproling: Used to have Herald of Leshrac but it felt too slow for its mana cost. Mimic Vat looks like a much better fit now compared to last time I considered it! Path of Discovery and Titania, Protector of Argoth are good additions but I'm very unsure on what to take out for them. Replaced Sneak Attack with Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded to power down the deck, but if I get my hands on a Sneak Attack I'll put it in! Not a fan of the one time use Generator Servant, I'd rather have repeatable haste enablers and mana rocks, and I'm trying to lower the number of small creatures for Oath of Druids to accidentally hit.

Also, have you considered Ilharg, the Raze-Boar as a substitute for Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded. He’s always a creature so he can block and attack. And he doesn’t kill your creatures/empty your hand.

im not understanding why Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded is here, is it supposed to be Purphoros, God of the Forge? since he deals etb damage and can anthem the field or am i missing a synergy with the other one?

CatPepPop on Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh (Planeswalker Tribal)

Thanks :-) I'm giddy with the thought of having an army of Chandras on board. I think Chandras are the most common PW and one I most one to build (though a battalion of Gideons is also funny). Figuring out the curve/balance on this will be little challenging. I'm going to fiddle around with it some and appreciate the suggestions.

I started adding some cards into inventory and it's giving me an estimate of what it would cost to buy the remaining cards, which is nice. Maybe there will be some sweet card upgrades with the Chandra Spellbook coming out next month.

There's a number of red decks I've been thinking about and might try developing some and putting them up here. The Lady of the Mountain would be cool flavor but probably not enough to bother. I want also want to a double themed deck with double damage, double strike, double attacks, probably with Obosh, the Preypiercer. I've been think about a Sneak Attack type deck with Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded or Feldon of the Third Path. Probably similar kinds of deck building and balance issues for both or monored generally.

almost forgot

Shifting Shadow works just as good and sticks because Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is indestructible

not as good but Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded, Ilharg, the Raze-Boar, Sneak Attack other good ways to temp out fatty's

@bankrupt_on_selling I've used Xenagos, God of Revels in the past, and it was always a good card. I swapped it out for Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded recently and I've been liking that better. Haste is so important that it could be correct to run both.

I'm much more tepid on See the Unwritten and Selvala's Stampede. They seem awfully high variance, and I think I'd rather run tutors in their place. I'm sure they're fun when they work though - just not my style.

Scroll Rack is absolutely great, and it was with great reluctance that I took it out of the deck a while back. I was lacking in card advantage engines, and Lifecrafter's Bestiary offered both card advantage and filtering. It may well find its way back in, but it waits on the sidelines for now.
