Purphoros, God of the Forge Discussion
4 days ago
If you're wanting to play combo slivers, you should look into outlet cards like Purphoros, God of the Forge, Impact Tremors, Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist who form a combo with your commander and Basal Sliver, Ashnod's Altar or Mana Echoes (which you should add). Cutthraot and artist don't work with Mana Echoes however are still good enough to run. The other slivers you should look ata running are Dormant Sliver and Necrotic Sliver.
You don't need Darkheart Sliver, Ghostflame Sliver, Fungus Sliver or Mistform Sliver. They don't do enough to wanrrant a slot. You should however look at including Nature's Lore, Farseek, Skyshroud Claim, Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman (assuming you have fetches) and Noble Hierarch (depending on budget).

For mono-White, here's a couple neat options, bushido_man96's suggestion of Sram, Senior Edificer is solid. Card draw is scarce in mono-White, so having a commander who provides card advantage is invaluable.
Some other options to consider:
Isamaru, Hound of Konda can be surprisingly explosive as a Voltron commander, as you can start swinging for commander damage on turn two. Personally, I find its strategy a bit too straightforward for my taste.
Odric, Lunarch Marshal can be good for a lot of different, interesting creatures.
Eight-and-a-Half-Tails has very interesting abilities and can make for some fun mindgames with your opponent.
If you're looking for a less popular commander, you could try Soraya the Falconer. Unfortunately, mono-White, particularly mono-White birds, are not great alongside Banding. But, if you could make it work, you'd be in the interesting position of using (and explaining) one of Magic's unfairly maligned abilities.

A few cards I think you could consider for this deck if you haven't already are Mathas, Fiend Seeker, Asylum Visitor, Crackling Doom, Olivia, Mobilized for War, Bloodhall Priest, Falkenrath Aristocrat, Olivia Voldaren, Stromkirk Noble, Obelisk of Urd, Purphoros, God of the Forge, and Stoneforge Masterwork.

Gets around indestructibility. the theros gods see a lot of play in my group, especially Purphoros, God of the Forge and it's my only way of dealing with them besides Karn Liberated. Also I've found a lot of blue players don't counter it since they can draw back into the enchantment/artifact I'm removing.
And I'll gladly take a look at your Azusa deck. Always happy to pass on what little tidbits I can.

Is a fairly easy include if you can afford it Purphoros, God of the Forge.

gdm1989: I know, right? >:D
BelugaWhale217: Clearly they had been corrupted and turned away from His path. They had to be cleansed. Only the truly devout may walk in His holy light.
cascadien: This deck originally was more focused on tokens - it played cards like Purphoros, God of the Forge, Mana Echoes, Bident of Thassa, etc. But it turns out that relying on your 6-mana commander as your primary source of tokens was inefficient and made the deck vulnerable, and combo just fit him better.
