Shield Sphere Discussion

Thanks man!

Yeah i've already changed the edicts this morning but i forgot to update here.

I found Shield Spheres really useful since my Red deck friend runs 4xVexing Devil, 4xBall Lightning, 2xBladetusk Boar and Sword of Feast and Famine, so have a 0 drop 0/6 can help me save removals for the (not so much) later big flyers like Thundermaw Hellkite.

Also there's none other me that plays Black, so Doom Blades are prettu much ok.

I've got 2 Dark Confidant, but isn't Necropotence overall better? Surely i won a lot with it, but i've not yet tried Bob!

If I were you, I would take out the Doom Blades and Diabolic Edicts and replace them with Dismember and Geth's Verdict. Also, the Shield Spheres would be better replaced with Gatekeeper of Malakir. Maybe Vampire Nighthawk or Gifted Aetherborn. Torment of Hailfire and Profane Command are fun if you want a bit more control. And finally the obvious, Dark Confidant. I'm not too sure what your budget is or EXACTLY what you're up against, but I hope I've had useful suggestions.

I think you could go with the Shield Sphere for defense purposes. Vampire Nighthawk is for lifelink and deathtouch but if you have the lifelink covered and would rather have the free defender early game, that works too. I like the versatility of the nighthawk having flying but that throws your creature curve out of wack when you don't have something to drop before turn 3 (assuming no Dark Ritual in early game). And as we know with red, it's fast.

With all this Vampiric Link i can even remove Vampire Nighthawk. I can either add another Shield Sphere to help me defending in the first turns in case i won't find spot removal, or add another beater... what do you think?

The other good 0 we talked abt:Shield Sphere; Also Fling + Atog is another win-con. For mana-fixing and draw: Chromatic Sphere; For more draw: Ichor Wellspring.

Also, Prototype Portal and Soul Foundry imprinting Ornithopter, Shield Sphere, or any other creature work. But at that point it's getting pretty convoluted- you need the imprint card, the creature, the Alarm, and the Ensoul Artifact.

Sheet on Purphoros, The Token God

Just some ideas:

Panharmonicon is a ton of fun in Purphoros decks.

Shifting Shadow has been amazing for me, but I run dragons as a sub theme in my list. It's slightly less good if you mainly run non-creatures, but can potentially deliver a shocking one-of, surprise Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre (or whatever you choose to run). Indestructible means Shifting Shadow moves on to find another creature but your indestructible creature remains.

I like running a few Wheel of Fortune effects in my list to refuel my hand.

Hangarback Walker and Walking Ballista work really well. Also, the free-drop creature cards like Ornithopter, Endless One, Crimson Kobolds, Crookshank Kobolds, Kobolds of Kher Keep, Memnite, Phyrexian Marauder, Phyrexian Walker, Shield Sphere, and Shifting Wall are good options if you have room for them and want to lower your curve.

Mimicrymimicry Ahh ok now I understand why you use it. But aren't Shield Sphere or Memnite better, since the first one is a decent blocker and the second one a possible attacker.
