Purphoros, God of the Forge Discussion

G_man on Wary Sisters

ej133 I was considering that, though I think that it would have to replace Purphoros, God of the Forge since running both seems like it would be unreliable

Izu_Korasu on The Locus God + Lifegain?

not really .. i mean you can try to force it with cards like Baral, Chief of Compliance, Goblin Electromancer, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Past in Flames and cheap blue cantrips ... but even with rituals, blue and or just mana quickly becomes an issue for storming in non-mizzex/Yidris decks

Arjun, the Shifting Flame decks have the advantage of Mindmoiling everytime they cast a spell and can use Psychosis Crawler, Sphinx's Tutelage and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind to ping opponents lifetotals/decks multiple times a spell even if the storm fizzles.

that being said, The Locust God shines at drawing cards, and going wide with an army of hasty fliers ...Kindred Discovery on insect is a good start and has exponential growth with Alhammarret's Archive (draw 2 cards, make 2 locust, draw 4 cards, make 4 locust .. etc, just becareful as the loop is mantatory .. so Laboratory Maniac or a way to kill people before you lose is important before you start)

and cards mentioned in the above sections combined with Chasm Skulker, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Frantic Search, Whirlpool Warrior, Brainstorm, Rhystic Study, Whirlpool Rider and other cheap "wheels" may help you get value even if your storm doesnt quite get there.

Deck looks good! My only advice would be to incorperate a little bit of removal so you can interact with the other players. It can be cheap efficient creature removal like Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile or catch alls like Beast Within.

Here's some other Mayael stuff, not necessarily better than what you have already, just more options.

Purphoros, God of the Forge

Spearbreaker Behemoth

Greenwarden of Murasa "big Eternal Witness"

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite

Stonehoof Chieftain

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight

Aurelia, the Warleader

Vagrant Plowbeasts

Mycoid Shepherd

Aura Shards

Sigarda, Host of Herons

Where Ancients Tread

Stuff that synergizes well with Mayael:

Seedborn Muse for Mayael ability on each opponent end step

Illusionist's Bracers

Rings of Brighthearth

Thousand-Year Elixir

some missing Warstorm Surge type effects: Impact Tremors, Purphoros, God of the Forge, and maybe Electropotence

Well for card draw luckily you are in five colors. I prefer stuff like Phyrexian Arena, Staff of Nin, and Mind's Eye, they arent too overpriced and do a decent job. Id go with extra attack phases if i had to keep one of those. I like the stuff that makes your dragons hexproof too id just keep that and ramp my dragons to hell. Add in Anguished Unmaking and Utter End maybe some counters to prevent board wipes nd id call it good. If u wanna do double strike or anthem effects id add in True Conviction and things like Akroma's Memorial and Eldrazi Monument.im personally thinking of adding in Dragonstorm and the worldgorger combo along with things like Purphoros, God of the Forge

I love norin. I like this deck.

Maybe a Purphoros, God of the Forge maybe deserve a single slot in this deck.

Decks like these make me hope Firecat Blitz is reprinted in modern someday :P

Yes chaus12, I can explain it.

You see, with cards like Walking Ballista, Impact Tremors, and Purphoros, God of the Forge I can win the game. I win with Walking Ballista by having the Ballista come in as an infinite power and toughness with the mana provided by Food Chain.

LordNazahn on Inalla Prototype

For the Ashnod+Inalla+Bloodline trigger try Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Impact Tremors, Purphoros, God of the Forge or other like effects.
