Purphoros, God of the Forge Discussion

greyninja on I want to build an ...

I've been playing Animar, Soul of Elements for over four years and he's suuuper fun. I highly recommend it!

Here's the link to my deck so you can check it out. It's moved beyond a budget build, but it has a lot of the cheapo staples like Shrieking Drake, Ancestral Statue, Dream Stalker, Man-o'-War, Temur Sabertooth, Peregrine Drake, Cloud of Faeries, etc

I'd absolutely recommend picking up Cloudstone Curio and Purphoros, God of the Forge. Curio let's you capitalize on your ETB triggers, and purph will bring down the house on your opponents

Palinchron can go infinite with animar and enough blue-producing lands. Deadeye Navigator and Great Whale are more staples.

You'll definitely need all the draw-card sources you can get. Animar tends to puke your hand onto the board quickly, leaving you open to boardwipes. Soul of the Harvest, Shaman of the Great Hunt, Primordial Sage, Zendikar Resurgent, Consecrated Sphinx if you can afford it, etc

To stop wipes you can use Mystic Snake, Draining Whelk, Stratus Dancer, etc. Interaction like Duplicant and Phyrexian Ingester are always good ideas. Ainok Survivalist, Reclamation Sage, Indrik Stomphowler, and Acidic Slime are all good

That's all from me for now. Be sure to swing by edhrec.com for a bazillion more ideas!

Since this is a token deck, I would strongly add Purphoros, God of the Forge because he will deal massive amounts of damage when those tokens come into play.

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa and Ezuri, Renegade Leader are generals that provide great beatdown potential. Ghoulcaller Gisa can give you a fun option to go wide with tokens and do some fun recursion aspects, and you can't beat for creature removal. Also in , I really enjoy Volrath the Fallen. You can make him big, and there are fun options out there to give him evasion and swing for big damage. Purphoros, God of the Forge provides opportunities for damage, combo, and removal.

A couple of thoughts for you:1) Brion Stoutarm fling on a stick

2) Conjurer's Closet has some neat interactions with the steal creatures theme. Bounce the stolen creature and you get to keep it. (I'm 90% sure this is how it works)

3) Captain of the Watch works for multiple categories in this deck.

Depending on budget there are a bunch of other options including plane's walkers and Heliod, God of the Sun and Purphoros, God of the Forge would both fit this deck fairly well.

Good evening, thegigibeast, NarejED, and everyone here. Its been a while, but Im ready to resubmit my Purphoros, God of the Forge deck again since it finally hit 100 upvotes. Alright, let me begin my case.


I believe that a Purphoros deck needs to be more than a Tribal-goblin deck. If left to be purely goblin-like, you tend to miss out on amazing and needed cards, like Norin the Wary, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Tempt with Vengeance, and Grinning Ignus, just to name a few. Infinite combos are also awesome, but as has very minimal amount of tutor cards, I just leave them along (also a personal preference not to have infinite combos here). However I do list them in my description in case a player wants to have them too.


With some suggestions, I have lowered the CMC in this deck. Even with Blasphemous Act, the range is as little as 2.69. I've also changed up a third of the deck by adding Snow-Covered Mountain and all. Hmm... However, I do not believe that Purphoros needs a card like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. My goal with Purphoros is to not let him have enough devotion to be a creature, as even indestructible creatures are more prone to removals more than indestructible enchantments, case being Swords to Plowshares and Dictate of Erebos.


I hope that you would reconsider my request to see if my deck is worth joining the list here. Or any comments/suggestions. Thank you for your time.

I'm running Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor since they do the same thing. Enlightened Tutor is a 1 drop that gets me any enchantment, including things like Purphoros, God of the Forge, Grave Pact, Vicious Shadows ect.

As for draw, since I'm already sacing things, I may as well use things like Dark Prophecy to get value from my things dying, and things like Smothering Abomination can be used pretty much any time. I prefer things that I can use more than once to generate card advantage :)
