Purphoros, God of the Forge Discussion

I'm with pskinn01 on Purphoros, God of the Forge and Impact Tremors. You can also sport cards like Berserk, Tainted Strike and Xenagos, God of Revels which let you one shot players with Prossh. A few token producing cards as well and you should be good.

Other than that, you can include all the good budget ramp, draw, tutoring and removal and you have your deck.

It does seem like ever so much goodstuff, that being said, Sun Titan does synergize with Selfless Spirit, Fleshbag Marauder and Krosan Verge.

Adding a 5-7 more fetch lands would make the Sun Titan much more powerful aswell.

I do get the confusion though, the deck lacks a clear victory plan, instead relying on powerful cards to threaten the boardstate all by themself.I would advise to focus on a few engines and one of two victory conditions, in this deck Purphoros, God of the Forge and the token generators appears to be the strongest candidate.

It looks like the deck might struggle with it's mana curve aswell, having a high average cmc and possibly not enough ramp to get there in time.

A few concrete suggestions Emeria Shepherd + Sakura-Tribe Elder allows you to put every Plains into play from your library.

Hour of Promise is fantastic for fetching both Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers.

For card draw I would be remiss if I did not suggest Reassembling Skeleton/Bloodghast + Skullclamp

The Bloodghast would incresae in power in synergy with Ashnod's Altar + fetchlands aswell, resulting in sudden ramps of colorless mana from a single fetchland drop, enabling big plays far earlier.

Adding both the Bloodghast + Reassembling Skeleton would turn cards like Buried Alive and Entomb into powerful mana efficient tutors aswell.

On a last note Demonic Tutor is better than Beseech the Queen in every way, but most importantly because it denies information from your opponents.

To make room for some of these changes I would start by taking a long hard look at your planeswalkers, they appear to be slow to impact the board and few of them plays well with your general strategy.

Only one of them looks like it's powerful enough to matter on it's own, that would be Elspeth, Sun's Champion

I feel that Krenko does better with Purphoros, God of the Forge as the Commander.

Krenko is more easily gotten out of the deck, and they are a match made in heaven. The deck can be ran as Goblin Tribal to much success.

Mono red is usually at a disadvantage at the table, but Krenko is a really viable commander, if one-dimensional. Between the low curve of goblins and the power of cards like Impact Tremors and Purphoros, God of the Forge while he is out, you can definitely win out of nowhere with him pretty easily.

Id drop Outpost Siege for Purphoros, God of the Forge. Dreamstone Hedron seems a bit expensive. I would replace it with literally any 1-2 CC mana rock (Sol Ring, perhaps?). Ruination seems like it might hurt you a bit. If you wanted to really keep Outpost Siege, you could take out Ruination instead, although where is Shared Animosity?I would also include one, "oops, i win!" combo in there. I've been running Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Zealous Conscripts. You could run either of the Bushwhackers instead though.

Some additional cards I'd consider removing- Battle Squadron - To expensive! Lightning Crafter - Expensive and why? Blighted Gorge - I think Ramunap Ruins might be a bit better or maybe Scavenger Grounds.

Those are my thoughts for now.

Purphoros, God of the Forge is the bigger brother to Impact Tremors. Play both. They work wonders in the deck.

Thanks, luther! I love the suggestions for Cerebral Vortex and Faces of the Past especially and will try to test with them.

I use Altar of the Brood (with Impact Tremors and Purphoros, God of the Forge as my Psychosis Crawler now, though it was in earlier drafts of the deck.

I'll take a good look at all of these - thanks again!
