Swords to Plowshares is the best removal spell in the game though, because the lifegain is irrelevant. You've just turned their big creature into a lifegain spell. They've spent...a 6 mana for a Wurmcoil Engine, and you've made them spend 6 mana for 6 life. They don't get anything else.
Path to Exile isn't played in legacy because giving them a land is generally better. It makes their Brainstorms and Ponders better, it gives them a land which is relevant in a form of Dazes and other stuff.
Remember, you are the beatdown, you will be negating that life gain and then some, just don't give them a land to let them hardcast Terminus.

OK. Why is this listed as a competative deck then? It seems to have no interaction with combo and just lose to the midrange and control decks packing Terminus etc

Hail to you pokejerk20,
Y E S Y E S Y E S
Cuz y'know, Terminus is like Pucci's Made in Heaven reseting THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE.
Ho and did I mention that Temporal Mastery is basically DIO's World ??
Miracle Mecanic got that Jojo's vibes y'know !
I don't know who you are, but I love you for understanding my reference <3

I have to ask why you put Mass Calcify in this deck when it costs while Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, and Terminus are much more effective, more capable of being used early on when some jackanape combos off with a bunch of zombie tokens.
If you really want to pay less than two dollars for your obligatory boardwipe, at least use one that works on all non-"indestructible" creatures, like the aforementioned Terminus and (my personal recommendation) Fumigate.
Another question: You call this "a pretty good deck on a budget," but that's a $400 price tag, isn't it? Admittedly, I'm stealing some of the card ideas from here for myself, but my deck (^???)^ ??? might have some decent ideas, even though it might be a bit in the "underpowered" department.

This has been quite popular on MTGO recently, it doesen't play Counterbalance anymore since it's not reliable enough without Top but you can still set up Terminus with Ponder, Brainstorm and Portent and a one mana instant speed board wipe is stil really good. Plus Unexpectedly Absent + Predict is really neat.

Sheoldred, Whispering One takes a turn to get going, and a lot of Legacy decks don't care about it. They path it. They don't play creatures. Etc
Sigarda, Host of Herons is hard to kill, sure, but she isn't a very impressive body and she has been made worse by the printing of cards like Council's Judgment and the ubiquity or former ubiquity of Terminus. At the same time, you are getting a 3-4 mana discount at best and she ends the game in 4 turns, not 3.
Rune-Scarred Demon is a 6/6 flyer so 4 turns still, and it tutors 1 card, so what specific card do you want to get? Griselbrand draws you cards, which is better, ends the game in 3 turns and has lifelink.
Sire Of Insanity is played because for a lot of decks it is just game. Combo decks can't win if they've had to discard their entire hand on turn 1. Control decks are gonna struggle as they need to go land-go every turn. Midrange has to respect the big body.
Chancellor of the Annex allows you to go off on turn 1 and your opponent generally can't stop you because of the mana tax, as well as messing with their tempo. It is also a reasonable sized taxing body.
Some other reanimator targets are Worldgorger Dragon (normally you make a buried alive or double entomb pile of Oona, Queen of the Fae and Worldgorger Dragon, animate dead on Dragon. This makes a loop of WG coming into play. Exiling everything, including Animate, losing animate dead and dying. Everything returning. You tap your lands for mana. Animate dead looks for a target. Repeat for infinite mana then get Oona from Animate Dead and deck someone), Grave Titan (10 power over 3 bodies, makes more bodies) and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur for another sire/griselbrand type effect but slower.

I believe that a Purphoros deck needs to be more than a Tribal-goblin deck. If left to be purely goblin-like, you tend to miss out on amazing and needed cards, like Norin the Wary, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Tempt with Vengeance, and Grinning Ignus, just to name a few. Infinite combos are also awesome, but as has very minimal amount of tutor cards, I just leave them alone. However I do list them in my description in case a player wants to have them too.
With some suggestions, I have lowered the CMC in this deck. Even with Blasphemous Act, the range is as little as 2.69 (as you'd hardly ever spend 9 mana to cast that card). I've also changed up a third of the deck by adding Snow-Covered Mountain and and made it more defensive against other competitive decks. Hmm... However, I do not believe that Purphoros needs a card like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. My goal with Purphoros is to not let him have enough devotion to be a creature, as even indestructible creatures are more prone to removals more than indestructible enchantments, case being Swords to Plowshares and Terminus.
I hope that you would consider checking to see if my deck is worth joining the list here. Or any comments/suggestions. Thank you for your time.

I'd recommend cutting
If you get 20 damage you're toastAnd burn decks will bring the pain
Is a combopiece and needs something before it starts working.
Is a 3rd-4th boardwipe really necessary?
