Take out the second copy of Impact Tremors. Throw in maybe Vigor, Soul Foundry or even a Snake Basket

Abres_Tenelles, hey. Thanks, Snake Basket is definitely an advantage over goblin tribal Purphoros decks. It's funny you mentioned Descent of the Dragons, as I took it out probably a day before. Love the card. Amazing factor. But... Hmm, it wasn't the game ender I wanted it to be. If I had it in hand, I had to wait for a couple of tokens, and stuff tends to get blown up or die around me. Even giving my opponents a dragon was not fun, lost a few games like that. I ended up swapping it for a boardwipe, Starstorm, which not not made the deck a bit cheaper, but also gave me more of an edge to control the field a bit more. I'll have to check you deck out. Thanks!

Nice to see another Purphoros list!

Especially someone who also remembers Snake Basket ;0)

Would like to suggest Descent of the Dragons because of how well it works with Purphoros, God of the Forge's trigger.

Mine own build might give you a few extra ideas too.

I have seen another snek deck similar to this. It was also budget snek tribal, and it had the same thingies as yours does.

  1. First of all, Snake Basket doesn't give you sneks. It gives you cobers. The audacity I know! But instead of the snek basket, put in Obelisk of Urd, which makes your sneks mondo huge.

2.Sosuke, Son of Seshiro is fantastic with sneks since Kaseto already gives them unblockable to do the damages.

  1. Steely Resolve is fantastic since you have very few cards that target your own sneks.

  2. Door of Destinies and Urza's Incubator are fantastic snek boosters.

  3. Metallic Mimic is also great snek tribal.

  4. Tribal Unity this can be used as a finisher.

Ah, hey master274. It most likely is slower that goblin decks, but I'd like to think that it is more consistent and resilient. It's definitely pretty fast for a EDH deck. I don't see this much as a pure speedy deck, but more as a deck that speeds up the overall game and stays ahead, if that makes sense.Also, thanks for the suggestion. The thing is, I get red mana extremely easily because the majority of my land are mountains. I chose Ashnod's Altar because I need it for more mana boost. Dragon Fodder will give me 4 mana that I can combine with any untapped mountain. Cards like Snake Basket doesn't care about color, rather the amount of mana pumped into it. Good thoughts.

Following up on the above comment, I would suggest Orochi Hatchery over Snake Basket as hatchery is repeatable as opposed to requiring a sac.

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but kobra is no snek. Snake Basket gives you fake-snakes. fek-snek. Instead consider Coat of Arms for super-sneks.

Mirror Gallery would let you use Blade of Selves on your boss or the legendary eldrazi.

Snake Basket can make a lot of tokens

Beast of Burden can get huge.
