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.

KayneMarco: Yeah, that's how I feel about running Purphoros, God of the Forge / Impact Tremors in with Kykar as I already run a Purphoros deck.

I'm about to melt a deck and trying to determine what to run instead; something with preferably. Feather is another choice I'm considering but I'm trying to decide if Feather or Kykar would be better. You have experience with both so I'm curious as to what your opinion is. My Kykar list is almost identical to yours that I slapped together before finding you lol.

Under “ETB Abuse”, we gotsta put at least Guardian Project , Impact Tremors , Purphoros, God of the Forge , and Warstorm Surge . A really cool, crazy underrated/unknown/janky blink payoff is Isareth the Awakener . The trick is if you exile the creature, it gets exiled, but returns to the battlefield.

Hello everyone,

I've been working on this deck for a while now and wanted to get some feedback on it. I'm going with a more conservative route on making tokens using Rith, the Awakener . I'm also using spells to generate tokens, Planeswalkers, enchantments, and even a land as well. Creature removal and board wipes are huge in commander so I figure by using enchantments and some other spells I could keep a pretty solid board state and rebuild easily.

There are some other things in the deck like Purphoros, God of the Forge and Impact Tremors . So the deck has win conditions in there and even an infinite combo between an enchantment and a creature as well which I didn't even think about at first.

Let me know what you think?

Tokens "R" Us

Suggestions for pushing the deck? Purphoros, God of the Forge would be #1 on my list. Cast enough spells and just kill everyone.

Mishra's Bauble is another 0-drop you could run. It doesn't do a whole lot, but storm decks generally need all the eggs they can get their hands on.

A relatively simple combo for kykar is Sensei's Divining Top and Future Sight . Or top and Magus of the Future . Or Mystic Forge and top. This will let you draw your whole deck with kykar out, then win with either lab man or the newest Jace from WoS.

1 drop red can-trips are what really push Kykar into storm, and with Purphoros or Impact Tremors out it's a great way to churn through your deck and kill people. Warlord's Fury , Crash Through , Magmatic Insight , Renegade Tactics , Needle Drop , Dragon Mantle . These all essentially lower the card count of the deck by being free with Kykar out.

Another pet card of mine I really like is Mirror Entity . On top of being a boost for all of Kykar's evasive tokens(and also itself being a spirit), I really like that it can turn all other tokens on your field(from Young Pyromancer , Monastery Mentor , Murmuring Mystic , etc.) into spirits too for just one mana.

Hope I helped. Happy spell-slinging!

Purphoros, God of the Forge has been acquired and replaced Impact Tremors in the deck. To give the combo more juice, I've also replaced Kinjalli's Caller with Altar of the Brood .

Nice! I have some suggestions if you don’t mind laying down a bit more on the price.

You can never go wrong with Mana Echoes in a Tribal deck, and with Krenko you get tons of mana from it. Also Magewright's Stone for that added untap abuse

Lastly, I know he’s not a Gobbo, but Purphoros, God of the Forge lays down the burn on your opponents and again works extremely well with the commander.
