+1! Gotta love the mob boss!!Purphoros, God of the Forge and Impact Tremors are pretty much essential because you can pull a win without even attacking.

That is exactly what my deck did. It rarely killed with creatures. Always comboing out and going infinite. Just looked it up, played 54 creatures. Every creature is ramp in Animar. Cards like Hardened Scales get you the counters faster. Soul of the Harvest and Primordial Sage draw you a ton of cards. Haste enablers like Maelstrom Wanderer allowing you to tap your manadorks while bouncing and replaying them and Purphoros, God of the Forge kills the table. Or throw in a Deepchannel Mentor to make Animar unblockable and swing for 21 commander damage in a single hit.

Pikobyte Thanks for the suggestions! Unfortunatly, as stated, I can't put Tooth and Nail, Purphoros, God of the Forge and Craterhoof Behemoth (that I would also like to put in my Yisan's Party Mix deck. I found Dualcaster Mage to be rather clunky and while it gives you a nice body to block, I tend to use cheaper copy spell (like Reverberate) or recurring one like Increasing Vengeance. I'll eventually get my hand on a copy of Reiterate.

Chancellor of the Forge would indeed be an interesting addition, I'll try to get my hands on a foil copy in the near future to test it!

Pikobyte on Wort, Rediculous

Nice deck. Tooth and Nail can be totally bonkers here with Avenger of Zendikar and Chancellor of the Forge. Just go for Purphoros, God of the Forge on the first resolve and it’s a lot of damage. If you have haste for all, Craterhoof Behemoth closes it out. You can search all 4 of them with a copied Tooth and Nail

Nice deck, +1. Tooth and Nail can do crazy things in here. Copy it and go for Ogre Battledriver and Avenger of Zendikar at the first resolve, then go for Chancellor of the Forge and Craterhoof Behemoth on the second resolve for a big and wide hasty army. If you want some extra damage add in Dualcaster Mage and Purphoros, God of the Forge for the first resolve, copying the original spell for a total of 3 resolved and some extra etb-damage triggers.

Some cards sadly above 10$, but maybe you can trade or already have them. Hope this helps

Hey, if you drop all of the other instants and sorceries, Primal Surge instantly wins because you will have ~30 Purphoros, God of the Forge triggers.

I would try to use Scapeshift its a nice spell to generate a lot of elementals and if you combo with Sylvan Awakening you can make a lot of damage out of nowhere and Purphoros, God of the Forge it's not a bad addition either. I would remove Nissa, Worldwaker,Rubblehulkand Stalking Vengeance.

No. Since Amulate of vigor is a triggered ability Stoney silence has no effect on it.

An activated ability is always in this format "(cost): [effect]." for example Strionic Resonator

A triggered ability follows this format: "(Trigger condition), [effect].” Example: Purphoros, God of the Forge
