Big fan of your purphoros deck. I built it, and played it last night in my play-group. I got paired up in a crazy 3-player game, with a buddy playing my Dark Alley w/ Mr. Rakdos and His Eldrazi deck (thanks for the upvote), me playing your Purphoros, God of Tokens deck, and another buddy playing Heartless Son of a Bitch (a waaaaay underrated deck, true monster......I've lost on turn zero twice to it. Check it out, you might like the build, it is soooo much fire).
Game 1: Hearless killed everyone, including himself, on turn 3
Game 2: Heartless won on turn 5, with 1 life left
Game 3: (a mere 9 minutes after game 1 started) Heartless died quick to a tag-team, ultimately Rakdos won with only 2 life left, I almost had him....1 damn creature short! Pretty epic game.
3 strait games of pure lava-throwing, fire-spitting, heat-flinging damage. Took probably 30-35 mins. Good times. Can't wait to play it more. Thanks again, sweet deck.

Hey, ticked-off-squirrel. Woah, lots of suggestions. So I did test out some of your ideas on our game day a few days ago. Let me find my notes:
Goblin Warrens- Great card, and I was lucky to had a Dragon Fodder the next turn. However, when my Goblins were killed, I ended up with Elemental and Human tokens for the rest of the game and that made this card not as useful as in the beginning.
Lich's Tomb was really nice. I have to say, it held off some big creatures for a bit. I need to figure out the synergy, because once my opponent had an infinite combo with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion, I couldn't do much. Good card though!
Massive Raid- I have tried cards like that and Mob Justice and Burn at the Stake, and it worked against non-Blue, non-White, non-Black decks. The reason why it didn't work as well against those decks is because when I played this kind of card, my opponents would have a instant-speed boardwipe that nullified this card. Sad face. Maybe I should try it again, with better results.
Sylvok Lifestaff- It was an interesting thing to be gaining life in this deck. I do like the combo with this and Ashnod's Altar. Not sure if I would use it, because I like the beatdown aspect before helping myself, but it was a nice way to stay afloat! Just a heads up, I was definitely more of a target when my opponents all had 15 life and I was still at 40 because of life gain. :D
Insult / Injury- Still testing. Love it so far.
Cards that don't work well with this deck, Foundry Street Denizen. Hmm, more for active attacking players. He doesn't have trample or anything, so he's just a big blockable beatstick. Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots, the thing is, I never make Purphoros a creature, so I wouldn't be able to attach it to him. He has enough of a protection as an indestructible enchantment.
Thank you for your thoughts, bro. I definitely appreciate it and will continue to consider some of them!

Good morning, EventuallyClassy. Woah, thank you for the props! This is definitely why I uploaded my deck. Simple, fast, fun. I'm going to check out the decks you mentioned again, and see where to go from there. I hope you continue to update us here on your games with the Purphoros, God of Tokens (Multiplayer EDH Primer) deck and see if we can figure out a better win/lose/fun game ratio. :D

Great deck bro!I have a Narset tokens deck with the exactly same idea of your deck! Summon tokens and deal direct damage, or kill everybody by attacking with an army of buffed tokens, i will let the link here:http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/narset-and-the-tokens-army-real-life-deck/
Also, i use two cards that might be useful to you, Outpost Siege(you can use as a draw or direct damage card) and Vicious Shadows
September 23, 2017 8:46 a.m.
Good morning, nakaosensei. Thanks for the props. I do like Narset decks, especially the colors you get to access. Being mono-red really can limit you or make you shine. Thanks for the recommends, I already have Outpost Siege and it works great for me. Vicious Shadows is a bit more expensive, but it looks pretty fun too.

Since you're going to be casting spells and have lots of enter the battlefield triggers, I feel like Empty the Warrens would be a great addition if you cast a lot of spells this turn. Especially if you need more etb triggers.
Of course, since it has storm, you can cast cheep etb effects and get more tokens for free!! 83

Hey, Workman4137. That is a in interesting thought. I tend to play 1 or 2 spells during my turns, would that be enough for this card with the STORM ability? Also, what would you swap this with?
October 10, 2017 1:22 p.m.
Still, if you have a storm count of two including empty the warrens, that's 6 tokens which if purpheros on the battlefield is 12 damage not including the panharmonicon, impact tremors, pandemonium, warstorm surge, etc effects adding more damage.
As for what to take out, I would say a ruby medallion or something not as impactful or very useful.
Speaking of mana, a Gauntlet of Might would help you out with mana and gives an anthem effect if you have the money for it.
Of course, it's just some food for thought. I haven't built something like this very often.
October 11, 2017 11:05 a.m.
Sorry, my math is wrong but the point still stands. At worst it's another Krenko's Command
October 11, 2017 11:06 a.m.
Thanks, Workman4137. I'm definitely not a math person myself when I try to count up all the damage added with Purphoros and the like. I'll go and consider it, especially something to mull over with combos like Grinning Ignus.
October 11, 2017 11:31 a.m.
I'm going to make my comment for the sake of fairness, as KeroroLulu doesn't have the experience.
Sunbird's Invocation - Expensive, but can be very profitable
Makeshift Munitions - Another Goblin Bombardment
Rummaging Goblin - Pitch what you don't need, and draw
Pyromancer's Goggles - Copying stuff for lots of damage
October 11, 2017 5:24 p.m.
Thanks, Byuante, I appreciate you helping us both out. I'll be looking forward to seeing if I can test some of those suggestions out in a future game!

Hi, your deck looks like it's a lot of fun playing! I enjoy the power of Purphoros, God of the Forge in my own naya tokens deck.
You do not mention Goblin Rabblemaster, Hanweir Garrison and Young Pyromancer in your Budget section or alongside the cards that didn't make the cut, so I just want to suggest them because I like them.
Also Mercadia's Downfall is a nice alternative wincon against most decks, but maybe it's just not necessary in yours.
October 14, 2017 3:43 p.m.
Some more cards that I considered for my naya tokens deck back in the day:
Kyren Negotiations extracts additional damage out of your tokens.
Furystoke Giant is similar but lets you ping creatures as well.
Spawning Pit lets you recycle your tokens. Also good in response to sweepers.
October 14, 2017 4:04 p.m.
Aaand Stranglehold is great when you're playing tokens, because a lot of the opponents will try to search their library for their one-off anti-token-tool
October 14, 2017 4:07 p.m.
I'm sorry, but this really is the last comment. Stranglehold is also good in this deck, because it hinders the opponent from searching for Return to Dust or All Is Dust to remove your Purphoros, God of the Forge.
October 14, 2017 4:10 p.m.
Good morning, Bxbx. You are right, I need to update the Budget list by starting with your recommendations.
The other thing I need to add is Stranglehold is not exactly a budget card (above $5), however, I will add it as a side-board. You are correct, as other colors have tutors and searches galore, we need to protect ourselves better. I'll switch it in with War's Toll if I find myself against many or Captain Sisay-like tutor players.

xJonahSlayerx lol, doesn't changing commanders fundamentally alter the entire point of the deck?
November 11, 2017 5:33 p.m.
I know, just a thought. No one else responds to me lol
November 11, 2017 10:12 p.m.
Hey, xJonahSlayerx. JRaynor is correct. If I swapped the commander for Krenko, I'd have to change a lot of the aspect of the deck. With Krenko, you'd want to spawn/attack with a lot of goblins. You'll be on the offensive a lot, and you would be very vulnerable to a creature boardwipe. Cards that make tokens other than goblins would have to go, because they wouldn't sync with Krenko. I prefer Purphoros, as he's more resilient and works with a lot of different strategies.
November 11, 2017 11:11 p.m.
I like Krenko, but I do have Purphoros already. I might just stick with his strategy because I have been testing him and he is harder to deal with than other red commanders. Thanks for the feedback and deck build.
November 13, 2017 6:29 p.m.
Absolutely, xJonahSlayerx. I always have a blast with him. Just update us with your matches so we can see how good/bad Purphoros plays in your tables and if there's any improvements/combos to note.
