tiassa on The Fat Red Line - Purphoros EDH

I'm not entirely experienced with Purph, but if Warchief Giant has been putting in some work i would like to suggest Blade of Selves it acan give you sad tokens that sit there as meat to throw under the bus lots of value in that in a four man pod you generate at least 4 points of damage off of it and all you lose is 4 mana and a token

Wat dacht je van Kindred Dominance?

Ik ben geen fan Warchief Giant. Omdat de Myriad pas triggert op het aanvallen dus die tokens triggeren je commander niet. Daarnaast denk ik je die spot beter kan gebruik voor meer mana fix.

Ruhan of the Fomori Een 7/7 voor 4 mana. Niet echt bijzonder naar mijn mening

Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist zorgt ervoor dat je minder kan aanvallen dus ook mindere tokens krijgt omdat je wilt winnen omdat je wijd gaat in plaats van groot?

Mardu Woe-Reaper is een leuke kaart. Goed gevonden

Als je Kin-Tree Invocation gaat gebruiken moet je dan niet iets extreem groots maken?

Als ik je deck zo ziet, dan denk ik dat je een tribal deck wou maken met soort of good stuff waariors. Probeer meer spice! Probeer je 1/1 tokens groot te maken door dingen zoals: Collective Effort, Beastmaster Ascension en Radiant Destiny. "It is about drawing cards!" - SaffronOlive. Gebruik kaarten zoals Bident of Thassa en Shamanic Revelation. En waar is de removal? En de ramp?

Ik denk dat je nog een aantal dingen moet aanpassen om hiermee leuk en sterk te spellen.

Since you came and helped me out, I will return the favor!

Cards that could be replaced:

Acidic Slime: I personally feel Reclamation Sage just outshines the slime. For 2 more mana, all you're getting is deathtouch and the option of destroying lands, which our commander is already capable of doing himself (if needed).

Nevinyrral's Disk: I personally don't like all that much. This has a lot to do with the fact it comes in tapped, and the fact that I prefer Pernicious Deed. If you don't feel like you need this, it could very easily be replaced!

Warchief Giant: This card I would argue could be replaced. The other two are more impactful when they connect. However I realize he is a personal fav of yours, but it's a possibility ;)

Scavenging Ooze: I don't think you need both this and Deathrite Shaman.

Elixir of Immortality: I personally don't see much use for this. If you want the option of putting stuff back in your library, I would instead put in Haunted Crossroads from your maybeboard (since I assume you're intending to save creatures with it!). Also, the shuffle means you have technically lost access to them anyway, when they rightfully belong on top of our deck!

Expedition Map: I assume you have this in here to fetch Volrath's Stronghold. It otherwise doesn't have that huge of an impact! I would trade it for the bigger Ulvenwald Hydra in your maybeboard!

All artifact ramp over 4 mana: I personally would replace all of them with 2 mana signets and Fellwar Stone. That means you will rarely come into a situation where you can't cast one!

Sifter Wurm: I believe this card could be replaced as well!

Inclusions to maybeboard:

Hua Tuo, Honored Physician: He does the same thing as Haunted Crossroads just on tap.

Viscera Seer: Nice sacc and top deck filter!

Aetherworks Marvel: Since you have a little energy theme going already, this could be another fun inclusion!

Blade of Selves: What's better than myriad creatures? Having myriad on everything!! XD

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest: I just really like the idea of this card in the deck, with us saccing opponents permanents and our own!

Greater Good: Can potentially draw an absurd ammount of cards, espcially if you include Ulvenwald Hydra.

Price of Glory: If you really hate that everyone else playing at instant/flash speed. We don't really have that many ways to interact with players on their turns anyway! :P

Aggravated Assault and Combat Celebrant: Extra combats, extra upgrades from Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire. Can also work as a panic button when you pull out a something big for your opponent! :P

Xenagos, God of Revels: Our dragon is now a 2 turn clock!

Hope this helps making the deck even more awesome!

Chaos Warp - I run a Purphy Deck. its one of my favorites, can be shut down by a really good enchantment.. Chaos warp is one of the only ways for red to get rid of some stuff.

Glacial Chasm - I find that my The Fat Red Line - Purphoros EDH generates ALOT of hate, and if I am playing at a full table i end up having 4 guys attacking me every round. If your group doesnt play with much land removal, this card is an awesome way to shut everyone else down. I find that the cumulative upkeep is far less damage then i would have ended up taking from the table.

Warchief Giant If the chasm isnt out, and if you are playing with multiple players, this guy is great. He comes out, and then hastes into 3 others.. so I end up doing 8 damage to everyone before he has even dealt damage.

last one, Chandra, Flamecaller - if you are looking for a planeswalker to take some of the attack heat off you, she is pretty good. when you put her into play, you automatically get 2 elementals, which is 4 damage to everyone.

Good luck, i would love an update if you have played what cards worked for you and which didnt.

I like the deck over all. I think it's pretty neat that your deck has an underlying "angel tribal" sub-theme to it. If you would like to expand that theme a bit then you could focus on more tribal synergies as well, like adding Bruna, the Fading Light and Herald of War. Also in your cat deck you have Herald's Horn and Urza's Incubator which I believe are better suited for this deck.

The big problem I am seeing with this deck overall is that your instants and sorcerys are a bit lacking, especially for red white, and your creature mana curve is really high. Some of the mana problems go away with the amount of rocks you run and if you switch to tribal angels you can use the artifacts and Herald of War to alleviate that a bit. Another problem is that most of your lands enter tapped.

To fix these things you could do as such (if you have the money or desire to):

-Desolation Giant (you're better off with a normal wrath)

-Jareth, Leonine Titan (doesn't have flying or reach which makes him worse)

-Kalemne's Captain (to much mana. If you have enough to monstrous, play an angel)

-Warchief Giant (this card is great, but you might want Angelic Skirmisher or Aegis Angel instead. Up to you really)

-Ancient Amphitheater (you wont be running enough giants for this to be worth it)

-Some of the cycling lands. You don't need 5. (probably Drifting Meadow & Smoldering Crater)

-Comeuppance (4 drop instant is a lot in this deck)

-Manabarbs (I like the idea, but you will need to tap many more lands than anyone else)

-Boros Keyrune (Boros Cluestone is better & it isn't worth 3 mana)

-Loxodon Warhammer (Great card, but not really useful in this high cost deck)

-Tamiyo's Journal (Too slow for this deck)

-Whispersilk Cloak (Most of your creatures already have flying)

+Bruna, the Fading Light

+Herald of War

+Angelic Skirmisher

+Generator Servant (Good mana + haste, and Sun Titan target)

+Path of Ancestry

+Hanweir Battlements (haste is good, enters untapped, don't need but could add Hanweir Garrison if you want to)

+Seraph Sanctuary (life gain is nice & angel synergy)

+Deflecting Palm (just a better Comeuppance)

+Defy Death (5 mana for an angel)

+Marshal's Anthem (anthems and brings back a bunch of creatures)

+Herald's Horn

+Urza's Incubator

+Quicksilver Amulet or Belbe's Portal (removes mana cost problem)

Other cards you might want to think about:There are plenty of other possible angels to add. The list is to big to add here, so look online if you are interested.

Path to Exile is great if you have a spare.

Wear is good, but it's a couple bucks.

Chaos Warp would be a must add if it wasn't $3.

Wraths are good at slowing down the game for you to catch up. Cards like Hour of Revelation, Day of Judgment, Blasphemous Act, Descend upon the Sinful, Rout, and Fumigate are all pretty good examples.

Vandalblast is a good artifact wrath.

Other Tribal artifacts like Door of Destinies & Vanquisher's Banner work nice too.

Kindred Boon might be a sweet enchantment to check out.

Gratuitous Violence is right up this decks ally.

Berserkers' Onslaught is pretty cool as well.

Hope this helped.

Bro you need a Warchief Giant. Give your Gray Merchant of Asphodel myriad, your Massacre Wurm myriad. IMAGINE. Sepulchral Primordial with M Y R I A D. Oh and Grusilda gives them all menace. ;))))

Warchief Giant is pretty great too. Send one of the token copies at the chosen enemy (for Saskia). He has to block or take 10 damage, and 5/3 is some killing power.

Neheb, the Eternal and Aggravated Assault is also a terrifying combo.

Also some good aggressive planeswalkers include Arlinn Kord  Flip (good budget), maybe Domri Rade, Nahiri, the Harbinger, Samut, the Tested, Sarkhan Vol, and seriously consider Sorin, Solemn Visitor. His lifelink ability could be simply insane, and he's real cheap for a walker.

Keeping those fresh ideas coming.
