AlmightyTentacle on Fire From Olympus: Purphoros EDH

2 weeks ago

Hi, multimedia

Thx for comments, suggestion and upvote!

Primer - the idea of creating a more detailed description of the interactions and gameplay - Primer, has long been wandering in my head. Since English is not my native language it will require me a lot of free time which I do not have at that moment. Work and family on the first place, MTG and other my hobby on second. But someday in the not too distant future, I will find time to create it.


Thx again for all your suggestions!

  • Strip Mine & Wasteland - I dont quite sure that deck need more land hate cards and coloress non basic lands in it, I was happy enough with Shivan Harvest.

  • Ankh of Mishra - was in deck on early stages but was cut. Zo-Zu the Punisher much better imho. 1st - devotion. 2nd - he is goblin. 3rd - being a creature is not a minus it is a plus, even with all burn board wipes.

Hi, Hybrow

Thank you for comment and suggestions!

Mana Geyser - mana never been too much problem for the deck, my playgroup is mostly three players so this one doesnt work well.

Grinning Ignus - nombo with too many cards like Spellshock, Eidolon of the Great Revel, Pyrostatic Pillar.

Warchief Giant - too high cmc and as I say before my palygroup is mostly three players.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle - nice land, several times was in maybeboard but it enters battlefield tapped and it is too much if you ask my oppinion.

Descent of the Dragons - not bad card was in deck at early stages but was dropped out cuz almost everytime was used as Mogg Infestation wich is plain better.

Hanweir Battlements - here for haste ability cuz I dont like Hall of the Bandit Lord - enters tapped, Flamekin Village - have same problem as Hall.

Hanweir Garrison - was in deck before but was cut cuz too be really effective it needs haste and most time it was just one creature drop for .

I'd suggest replacing Pyrostatic Pillar with Eidolon of the Great Revel even though the pillar is harder to remove, but the Eidolon can also attack, so I think it would be better to help you win that race when you play it, because your own deck has several cards with CMC 3 or less!

Another good card for sideboard would be Echoing Truth, since it is very versatile and can get rid of tokens from Empty the Warrens, gets rid of Marit Lage as well...

I have roughly the same feedback as the other guys, the most important here is to replace Pyrostatic Pillar for Eidolon of the Great Revel as soon as possible and maybe adding the combination of Grim Lavamancer + Soul-Scar Mage might be worth it as well!!

Other than that, Blood Moon for the Sideboard is a nice choice if you can afford it!

johnkarpuk Well yes Pyrostatic Pillar does hit me a lot, in fact almost always when I play a spell, but since I am playing burn theoretically I should be able to win that race. I'm just starting Legacy, but from what I've seen lots of the format staples are under 3 cmc, such as Brainstorm or Serum Visions; and playing burn makes this a race skewed in my favor.

I'm no expert on burn decks, but is Pyrostatic Pillar really all that great in a deck that is almost entirely below 3 CMC? Wouldn't you be hitting yourself for a ton of damage?
