Reiterate occurrence in decks from the last year
Commander / EDH:
All decks: 0.02%
- Can I draw my deck before discarding with Faithless Looting?
- Question about how reiterate works in eggs.
- I cast Howl of the Horde (Raid-enabled) then Reiterate; what is the end result?
- Mizzix of the Izmagnus experience counters and Reiterate
- Does Swarm Intelligence go infinite with twincasting spells?

Thanks for the feedback!
I totally get the not wanting to go infinite. My playgroup is still trying to figure out where the line is around having infinite combos in our decks.
The Reiterate + Mana Geyser combo requires at least 7 tapped mana (3 to cast, 3 to activate the buy back, and 1 for profit) from your opponents. While that seems like a lot, if you are playing with 3 opponents, it is pretty easy to achieve (although does fall near the infinite category).
Way ahead of you on the +1 ;)

Hey, thanks for taking the time to write down the ideas and feedback! There’s some things here i’ve considered already but definitely some new ones too.
Infinite: Let me start off by saying that I’m not looking to add any infinite (mana or damage) combo’s that are too straightforward. In my playgroup it’s kinda not done and i agree for the most part that commander’s not about finding a two-card combo asap.
Ashnod's Altar is a nice card and would probably do a decent job, but i think it’s mostly the infinite potential you’d play it for. I actually removed the altar + deathmantle combo from my Muldrotha deck because people were complaining too much (:
Trading Post > Daretti, Scrap Savant This might be a good swap. Daretti’s not very resilient, so mostly it just gets you one reanimation or a faithless loot if the GY is empty. I also like how it gives your creatures utility when they die. Good idea.
Godo, Bandit Warlord (see infinite)
Heirloom Blade seems decent, it would mostly work on dragons i think? Do you know if “artifact” counts as a creature type for the blade? Otherwise it’s just dragons that have a decent chance here, and i’m sure that’s not enough. Equip for 1 makes it manageable. Seems similar to Shifting Shadow
I didn’t even know Reiterate before now so thanks for the introduction. I guess both have their perks, but i feel i prefer ricochet because it’s a more “over the top” effect. Interesting that it can go infinite with big rituals, though you do need 5 + 6 up front right?
Yeah i only just learned Zirilan of the Claw exists through TO, will definitely make my 99 once i find (/order) one. I’m sure i prefer purph as commander, but zirilan is very cool too.
The fun cards you mentioned can create quite the havoc! I don’t think i’ll add any of them soon because they break the mold of what i’m trying to do a little bit, though Indomitable Creativity seems pretty decent. Though i’m not sure I like how my artifact removal might give my oppo’s even more powerful stuff.
PS: could you +1 if you like it? Then we become #1 purph on T/O!

Awesome build! I'm a big Purphoros fan and I've been debating about how to find the sweet spot between dragons and artifacts with Purphoros, and I think you've done it (or are close to doing it) here.
I had the following cards that I wanted to point out to you as possibilities, and I'm curious what your thoughts are around them:
Ashnod's Altar: Combos very well with both Myr Battlesphere and Nim Deathmantle, creating infinite ETBs and mana. It also works great as a way to gain mana if you can't keep your big creatures around after sneaking them out. Lastly, you can sacrifice your opponents creatures when you combo with your steal effects, like Molten Primordial
Heirloom Blade: I need to test this more, myself, but this is great in a deck that wants more draw options and, specifically, wants to draw creatures. You can use it to find dragons or artifact creatures in most cases, but can also be used with golems, humans, and goblins.
Zirilan of the Claw: Another card in your maybe board that I think deserves more attention. This can function as another "commander" type card that can get our deck going, easing our reliance on purph-daddy a little bit. I consider this another Sneak Attack card.
Other fun ideas: I like putting a little disruption in my Purph deck, so I've added some of the following cards. I don't know if they can fit in here, but I think they help cover some of Purph's weaknesses while still being "fun" cards to play with and against.
War's Toll: Stop people from countering our Purph-daddy.
Wild Evocation: Great for us, messes with combo players.
Insurrection: Alternate win con that works well against players who like to build wide creature decks.
Pandemonium: A great way to get some additional value from our creatures while, hopefully, helping our opponents board clear one another until we get to our mid-game spike in power (hopefully we don't become the target of this card, though!).
Indomitable Creativity: I'm on the fence about this one, but it's a fun/flexible removal spell that also allows us to trade artifact tokens or mana rocks for stronger things later in the game.
I hope these were at least interesting to read! Again, I love the deck as is, but I wanted to share some other ideas as well.

This deck has been through a lot. It was fun to play as a Melek deck, but I kept reading about Mizzix. Mizzix has been fun for sure. I've been learning to play it better recently, especially since I've added the Scepter/Reversal combo, but then I also need to have enough rocks to make it worth it. I suppose I could just end up using it for value if it came to it. My favorite way to win is with Thousand-Year Storm and just pop off. Sadly, today I realized I can't flash back Reiterate with a Past in Flames and pay the Buyback price to do that particular combo. If I have the mana for that though, I'll probably be winning anyways.

Nice list, though I wonder why a 2 cmc ritual like Desperate Ritual isn't included? This way Firemind's Foresight is a 1 card combo when fetching Reiterate , Desperate Ritual and Lightning Bolt . While having mizzix in play with 3 xp counters.

This isn’t something you may go far but since you are already running Narset, Parter of Veils you can also run Windfall , Winds of Change , Teferi's Puzzle Box , Reforge the Soul , Wheel of Fate or Wheel of Fortune . If you do, you force your opponent to get rid of their hand and only draw one card while you get a new hand. Pretty mean but it’s powerful.
Overall I like your list of instants you are running. Seems like they all should work really well! +1 Good luck

If you're having problems finding answers then don't cut Gamble :) It's one of red best cards to actually find an answer by tutoring for it. Dualcaster Mage , Reverberate and Reiterate are helpful in multiplayer Commander because they can copy an opponents tutor.
Tectonic Reformation is an underrated red card for draw. One thing mono red has a lot of are Mountains and getting flooded happens. Reformation turns extra Mountains into draws. Repeatable cycling of lands for each is very good. I also suggest adding all the low mana cost draw in red: Faithless Looting , Light Up the Stage , Thrill of Possibility , Tormenting Voice , Wild Guess .
This draw/discard can help to find answers and be enablers for Feldon of the Third Path who can be good repeatable value in red especially with creatures such as Magus of the Wheel , Solemn Simulacrum . Torbran, Thane of Red Fell makes each red source do more damage which equals more life loss which makes more mana with Neheb. Comet Storm and Chaos Warp are pretty much a staple cards for mono red.
