MagicalHacker on Dealing 120 DAMAGE in 4 Turns?! (Purphoros Primer)

2 days ago

Yeah, I talk about Ruby Medallion in my description under "Notable Exclusions" where I say "This doesn't help me cast expensive artifacts, so it's the worst 2-mana rock available to me, and I only need 11 to optimize my chance of having exactly 1 in every 9 cards (the number of cards I should have been able to play by turn 2)."

I also run a Purphoros deck, and though it's small, it's worthy of mentioning (of any mono-colored deck really):

No Ruby Medallion?

Grinning Ignus and Ruby Medallion is not an infinite combo, but it's pretty damn close, and it's great for the storm count.

I actually used to run Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and Spinerock Knoll a long while ago. I took them out, because in this specific build games don't typically go passed turn 8 or 9, so I needed all of my lands to come in untapped.

As for Neheb, the Eternal, All Is Dust, and Comet Storm, they are all very good cards, but this is an Aggro-Combo deck, and it typically seals out the win on turn 5-8. I really don't worry about true mid- or late game because it really doesn't go that long.

Thank you for all of the suggestions, though! All good cards, but just not ideal for this specific build. :)


Yeah...I added Imperial Recruiter...he is super expensive, but definitely a strong card! If you are looking for a replacement card, I would suggest Tormenting Voice, honestly. Any card that gives you more card draw to help get the combo or needed cards!

As for Sol Ring and Ruby Medallion, I would recommend Sol Ring between the two. Sol Ring is a great replacement for either Desperate Ritual or Pyretic Ritual. I would not recommend Ruby Medallion though, because it is a little too slow for this build.

Thanks for stopping by, man!

Imp... Imperial Recruiter!!?? This card cost almost half the whole deck price.. @[email protected] secondary choices..? @[email protected]

Another question, how do you think if put in Sol Ring & Ruby Medallion instead of Desperate Ritual & Pyretic Ritual?

p/s: Winds of Change nice card!!!

multimedia on Quantity of mana rocks

2 weeks ago

Hey, Nekusar is strong with wheel effects therefore I would play 8-10 mana rocks depending on budget with 36-38x lands to take advantage of wheels.

For budget Grixis: the three on color Signets, two Talismans, Sol Ring, Fellwar Stone, Thought Vessel and/or Mind Stone and/or Coldsteel Heart.

No budget: the three on color Signets, Ring, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt, Grim Monolith, Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox and Fellwar.

Medallions are also nice they're like pseudo mana rocks: Sapphire Medallion and Ruby Medallion.

Using more rocks is good with control because then you can play more than one control spell per turn. This is especially important when playing wheels because then you can use mana from these rocks to play more cards per turn that you just drew from the wheel. A wheel also let you discard your hand if you draw too many rocks.

AKBZ on Wort: the Ramp Mother of Burn

My recommendations would be Ruby Medallion, Emerald Medallion, and Helm of Awakening. Anything that allows you to ramp faster into your spells would make your deck more consistent. Personal opinion.

xander11 well you don't have to go crazy with artifacts but I think some really help. Mind's Eye, Memory Jar, Ruby Medallion, Unstable Obelisk, Meekstone and even Pyromancer's Goggles can be great in the right deck. Goblin Welder is occasionally good for removal too. Hope that helps!
