OblivionBringer on Hope of Girapur

To be honest, I'm not exactly sure how Return to Dust fits in your non-existent colors. Nice to see people doing Hope of Ghirapur EDH though.

Hey!

I think you could cut glacial chasm and ice floe

Maybe add Maze of Ith or Thaumatic Compass  Flip

Revoke Existence/Fate Forgotten could be Forsake the Worldly or Return to Dust. I think the instant speed is worth the extra mana

cut distress, single card discard in commander is hard to use effectivly. If you want this type of effect add Sadistic Hypnotist.

maybe cut Feast of Blood for another instant speed kill spell like Path to Exile or Murderous Cut

maybe cut Mardu Banner for Mind Stone or Hedron Archive.

swap Mortify/Unmake for Anguished Unmaking or Utter End

Cut Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet for being to expensive and not inpacting the board fast enough.

Add some sweet sweet card draw like, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Painful Truths, Phyrexian Arena.

Add some recurision like Phyrexian Reclamation, Sun Titan (maybe), Bishop of Rebirth (Definitly!)

Add some pump effects like Shared Animosity, Cathars' Crusade,

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is good, maybe find a spot for him over Mathas, Fiend Seeker maybe?

Well that's a lot of suggestions, if you'd like to debate any of them I'd be more than happy to!

Good luck spreading vampirism!

I'd keep Magus of the Wheel and Humble Defector for sure. I don't think it's hard to weigh the risk vs. reward associated with these cards when you are top decking, which happens in boros occasionally. You more than likely have the worst draw at any table anyway in my experience.

That said don't discount Sunforger, it's card advantage too. You will want like 7 targets though if you include it, Boros Charm, Return to Dust, Swords to Plowshares etc.

More things to consider: better removal. Youre in black/white. All the best removal is at your disposal. (If your willing to pay the cash money for it)

Merciless Eviction

Return to Dust

Utter End

Mortify

Vindicate

Unmake

Anguished Unmaking

Swords to Plowshares

Fleshbag Marauder

Merciless Executioner

Path to Exile

Wrath of God

Day of Judgment

Decree of Pain

Unrelated.. but if you can get an assload of mana you can put Secure the Wastes to good use too.

Completely unrelated but super good:

Sorin, Grim Nemesis

Hi Dancing-Blade, using your deck to help build my own version of Arahbo, Roar of the World, Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats

Noticed you have Lifelink, like Basilisk Collar/Loxodon Warhammer/Ajani, Mentor of Heroes/Etc. Why no Felidar Sovereign do you find you dont get over that 40 life barrier? Just interested, I was thinking of running him as an alternate-win con.

Does Godsend do enough work for it's High CMC? I originally thought about it, but it doesn't stop Commanders because they never get exiled by it, and Commander as it is, unless you run up against a heavy unburial deck does it do much else?

How have you found Hungry Lynx, I keep looking at him and thinking nope, when rats die awesome, but what if I load up my opponents with deathtouch rates, they remove the Hungry Lynx now I'm walking my cats into 1/1 deathtouch that I provided them, that sucks.

Oreskos Explorer being green and ramping, you usually have more lands than opponents? Is it worth the risk of not drawing him turn 1-4 where he might be viable?

Suprised to see Sylvan Reclamation, with so much artifact/enchantment control, Aura Shards, Qasali Slingers, Return to Dust etc, this one is HIGH CMC, but I'm guessing you just Cycle it and move on for the CMC2, and if you need it, then you have it?

I noticed ZendikariWol posted about Howling Mine and Alms Collector and Rites of Flourishing, I haven't posted on the community, but my gut tells me that doesn't work. Drawing an "additional" card, is not the same as "would draw two or more". I stand to be corrected but, Alms Collector with check on the turn draw, only 1 ok nothing, check on resolving the Howling Mine triggered ability, only 1 ok nothing, same for Rites of Flourishing. A Wheel of Fortune or Blue Sun's Zenith for sure there he makes his mark, but I think ZendikariWol assessment is incorrect.

I've had success with Rhonas the Indomitable, he is 5/5 Indestructible/Deathtouch for CMC3 and can always attack with ANY cat on the board. Although, he is not a Cat, he can give a Cat trample if it's blocked.

No Sylvan Library?

Bxbx on Purphoros, God of Tokens (Multiplayer EDH Primer)

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.
