Purphoros, God of the Forge
Legendary Enchantment Creature — God
As long as your devotion to red is less than five, Purphoros isn't a creature.
Whenever another creature enters the battlefield under your control, Purphoros deals 2 damage to each opponent.
2R: Creatures you control get +1/+0 until end of turn.

Purphoros, God of the Forge Discussion

Impact Tremors and Goblin Bombardment are great to, they help burn when creatures enter the battlefield, and instead of falling to a board wipe you can sac them and deal damage instead, i guess Purphoros, God of the Forge would be good too for burn

I haven't played too much since the swap, but I think Liliana, Dreadhorde General is one of the best cards in the deck. She's a combination of Grave Pact and Dark Prophecy , and with a Phyrexian Altar out you can draw a ton of cards and trigger a ton of "dies" effects from Blood Artist to actual Grave Pact and the bonus card draw can even lead to extra Purphoros, God of the Forge triggers. While she's good on her own, she really shines when you have at least one or two of the above cards (esp. Phyrexian Altar or Ashnod's Altar) to keep the engine going.
I'm sure Bolas's Citadel would be nuts, too, but I've already got it in two other decks and didn't want to go too overboard on it. Definitely slot it in if you've got one. If you're going to swap one of the cards out for Citadel, though, I would definitely remove God-Eternal Bontu before Liliana.

That’d be a great addition. I’d also really like to add a Purphoros, God of the Forge

I would try to add some more red cards personally to have a more even mana spread as you don't want to ever be locked out of any cards unless you want to only splash red (although red has lots of good cards such as seen below)

Lets start with your CMC. In order for an aggro deck to be fast, the mana curve for the deck needs to be incredibly low to the ground. With that in mind here are some creatures that are all sub-three CMC:
- Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit
- Boros Reckoner
- Thalia, Heretic Cathar
- Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
- Tithe Taker
- Mentor of the Meek
- Ballyrush Banneret
- Haazda Marshal
- Aerial Responder
- Frontline Medic
- Consul's Lieutenant
- Bounty Agent
- Mirror Entity
- Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip
- Thalia's Lieutenant
- Akroan Hoplite
- Champion of the Parish
- Legion Loyalist
- Metallic Mimic
- Recruiter of the Guard
- Swiftblade Vindicator
- Legion Warboss
You are also gonna need to give your creatures haste, and one of my favorite cards does just that for next to nothing; Mass Hysteria .
Here are a few cards I also think would be really good support, or are staples in this archetype:
- Unbreakable Formation
- Brave the Elements
- Teferi's Protection
- Collective Effort
- Citywide Bust
- Militia's Pride
- Brave the Sands
- Glorious Anthem
- Chance for Glory
- Spear of Heliod
Lastly... I know you said you avoided it intentionally but... I think it was a mistake... You need more ramp. The more ramp you have the faster you can play dudes the faster you can kill someone. So Mana Crypt , Sol Ring , Boros Signet , Chrome Mox , etc. I think you should play at least 5 ramp artifacts to really help you get that overwhelming force, because on T4 you now have to live in fear of WoGs
Ok that's all... he said after posting a page long comment... Sorry. <3 If you need help with cuts anything above 4 cmc should be the first things to go with the exception of Cathar's. get your CMC as close to 2 as you can.

Lambofan217 thanks for your suggestion/comment!
I'm indeed very excited about that card, I think it will eventually end up in the deck, replacing Rix Maadi Reveler . By setting up the graveyard with the discards AND providing additional bodies to trigger Purphoros, God of the Forge or fuel sacrifice outlets, the card seems to truly do it all. I guess the ability is a bit more conditional than Rix Maadi Reveler but since this functions as a toolbox deck this shouldn't be an issue.

The Five cards I would suggest to max out on your devil spells and damage output. Number 1 Impact Tremors adds a lot of value for playing token generating spells. Number 2 is Goblin Bombardment , this offers you responses to explosions and such that provide you with extra damage output. Third is Bonus Round doubles up your instant and sorcery spells providing extra damage and nice combos. Fourth is Gratuitous Violence , doubled creature damage for you. Fifth cards is Purphoros, God of the Forge , works the same as impact tremors with more value plus hard to remove since it has indestructible. Cards like Battle Hymn and Pyretic Ritual could also find a place but that's more play preference and assessing if you need the additional mana for your combos or win cons to function properly

Cobthecobbler , Hey Cob I'm in the process of brewing up my own Marath list and I had a few questions about your deck. 1. I noticed that very few of your creatures make tokens and I wanted to know if you ever ran into issues generating tokens, ie if Marath has gotten too expensive? 2. As a whole Marath has a lot of synergy with several enchantments and a hand-full of artifacts, is there a particular reason you didn't include cards such as Enlightened Tutor Idyllic Tutor Hardened Scales Purphoros, God of the Forge ? 3. How does the deck play? How does your playgroup react to it/does it draw ire? Thanks in advance!
