Hybrow on Becoming the target

Boomcat12B - i was working out the combo you mentioned on my deck. Dont even think you need Ruby Medallion to make that combo go off, though it would make it a bit easier and produce extra mana to clear your hand.

If you have 5 lands and Runaway Steam-Kin out you can do it i think...

  • 3 mana to cast Grinning Ignus once (1 +1/+1 token)
  • 1 to bounce him back to hand
  • use 3 you got from him to cast him again (2 +1/+1 tokens)
  • 1 more to bounce him back a second time
  • use the 3 you got from him to cast him again (3 +1/+1 tokens)
  • At this point you can bounce him in and out 3 more times using the three mana off of Runaway Steam-Kin , which will generate 3 more tokens on him to do it again.

Think that's an infinite combo, did i do my math right?

Boomcat12B - Thanks, I like that combo. Ruby Medallion could easily replace out a land or Fellwar Stone . We don't generally play infinite combos in my playgroup, but having one 3-card combo in a 99 deck that doesnt tutor?!?... probably not that big a deal. And any of the pieces are good by themselves.

Meekstone - dont think I have seen it in play a ton, but its nice to slow down my attackers. The problem I have now is that the moment I pull out this deck I am a target from turn 1. So have thrown in a few like Crawlspace and Glacial Chasm just to slow my playgroup down. And I only tend to play this deck at the end of the night, for that final game.

Thanks for the view.

Just an idea for a janky infinite combo. Since you already run Grinning Ignus and Runaway Steam-Kin if you add any card that makes red spells cost one less Ruby Medallion you can bounce Grinning Ignus back to your hand indefinitely procing Runaway Steam-Kin to use the red mana it provides to continually pay for Grinning Ignus ability. I run this as my only combo in my Purph deck and it rarely comes up since it is a 3 card combo and I end the game before it really matters but when it does hit the field it is a guaranteed win (Until your playgroup sees it once then they will stop it LOL but most people do not know about this combo. It took me forever to figure out how to run in purph due to the red mana requirement)

Also curious how well Meekstone Works for you. I have not thought to put in any stax pieces since my deck is all gas and usually wins before I am killed but I am curious now and might start thinking of running a few pieces since I do not really attack.

Arcane Signet > Coldsteel heart

I would run Mind Stone > lotus petal. Petal's one time use is nice in a deck that can refill the hand, but I feel like you can just ramp up purphorous with it, it gets removed and you lost your commander and your ramp source. Mind stone adds the continous ramp with the needed card draw in red. I noticed you didn't include it purposefully (or purphorously....), so maybe a Ruby Medallion instead?

Hey, Hybrow, always glad to see you coming back. I wonder of having any planeswalkers in the deck. Chandra, Acolyte of Flame and Chandra, Torch of Defiance are both great choices, but would having a planeswalker and making Purphoros a creature (more vulnerable) be worth the short-lived push? How goes the testing with her?

Hi, SP3CTR3_chelts, so Ruby Medallion is a great card, but it was best used for storm decks. I have noticed 3 things with this deck: I play 2 spells a turn at the most, I have more than enough mana to play my hand (and have zero cards at the end of my turn, damn), and half my deck is colorless which makes this card less useful overall.

Hey, Wolfspane00, I haven't considered Chandra's Regulator . As you say, it's situational, but I have seen better draw power without need for another planeswalker. If I don't really run Chandras, then it would mostly be a artifact for drawing. Mortarpod brought up a good point with Idol of Oblivion .

atomic_moose, yes! Mmm, one the one hand, Purp's devotion would make him as an Indestructible Creature. But on the other hand... it basically doubles all damage from Purp! Debating on swapping out another 4-5 drop for it ( Siege-Gang Commander probably?). Will test it out.

Hey, ToolisMaynard, good reminder! I added that combo to the "Infinite Combo Section". To add further, do you know if Combat Celebrant makes an infinite combo with Splinter Twin ?

Thanks, Mortarpod. I am always glad to see a new bro here. I definitely will look into Idol of Oblivion , as both myself and SP3CTR3_chelts like it. It also seems like a great simple combo with cards like Loyal Apprentice . As far as tutoring goes, I would rather draw than tutor, if that makes sense. I enjoy the chaos that mono- decks bring that brings you a full hand rather than search for that one answer, since 40 damage is 40 damage. ;)

Guys, I am as always grateful for the time you put to help me update our Purp decks to keep him competitive. Let's play some EDH with our Purps and see what changes we'll add further!

Here is my disgustingly efficient Dragon tribal deck. I've long wanted one, and finally was able to build the deck of my dreams.

Yes, it's rated at a 31% on the competitive meter. That's mostly because I am using a lot of cards not seen in cEDH play. If you take the time to playtest this deck, you'll find it does two things exceedingly well;

  • Ramp
  • Pump out Dragons like two bunnies on a hot summer night

I've been playtesting it for the past week or so, and one thing I have noticed is that it bounces back from boardwipes insanely well. This is thanks to both running Lathliss, Dragon Queen and having cost-reduction support cards such as Urza's Incubator , Cloud Key , Ruby Medallion and more. When you can cast a Dragon for literally just and get a free 5/5 token out of it, you are basically always applying pressure on the board.

If you are interested in Dragon Tribal, I highly recommend you give this one a shot :D

@Chesu: Alright. Once I find a good replacement for Ruby Medallion that's Color Neutral, & cut Fire Diamond for Coldsteel Heart , I'll do just that; Swap Mons for Krenko #1 as CMDR; wait; one more thing for real. I was thinking of using a term of Ultimate Mindlessness. Gobs seems to be known for this; & yet, they are capable of Artifice Creation. But what words demonstrate mindlessness to not just the Pinnacle, & Absolute form, but what such a form can destroy the concept of the Mind? I'm having a weird knack for giving my CMDR Decknames Codex names based on the ultimate level of what the deck in question's theme shows.
