Argy I don't have any decks that would play it. I agree Search for Azcanta  Flip would be good in Kess, Dissident Mage or something like that, not so good in Purphoros, God of the Forge or Daretti, Scrap Savant lol.

Purphoros, God of the Forge but no Master of Waves ??

Two would go great with one another like peanut butter and jelly.

I feel Purphoros, God of the Forge, and Impact Tremors should be auto-includes. Add in Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury for some extra aggro, and synergy.

Carrion Feeder and Yahenni, Undying Partisan are both good sac outlets. Also Sadistic Hypnotist can be brutal. Purphoros, God of the Forge is always dangerous with a commander who makes tokens.

I'm sorry, but this really is the last comment. Stranglehold is also good in this deck, because it hinders the opponent from searching for Return to Dust or All Is Dust to remove your Purphoros, God of the Forge.

Hi, your deck looks like it's a lot of fun playing! I enjoy the power of Purphoros, God of the Forge in my own naya tokens deck.

You do not mention Goblin Rabblemaster, Hanweir Garrison and Young Pyromancer in your Budget section or alongside the cards that didn't make the cut, so I just want to suggest them because I like them.

Also Mercadia's Downfall is a nice alternative wincon against most decks, but maybe it's just not necessary in yours.

Venom_Pistachio: The only spell that REALLY needs to resolve in this deck is The Locust God, and he has to resolve as quickly as possible (hopefully with counterspell backup). Spell Swindle might work well in this deck depending on what you're playing against :)

Personally, I think that Impact Tremors is the best replacement for Purphoros, God of the Forge in this deck ;) But to each their own.

The issue I have with Wheel of Fate is that it allows your opponents time to empty their hand before the wheel happens. One of the strongest things about Wheel of Fortune and friends is that you get to choose the timing, so you can disrupt your opponents if you time it right.
