Purphoros, God of Edh

Commander / EDH*



Purphoros edh based around making tokens and doing a lot of damage to your opponents.

Hey there. There are lots of cards I'd recommend, but it's easier if I show you my Purphoros and Krenko (Multiplayer Annihilator EDH) deck. I like your focus with artifacts, makes for an interesting play. Me personally, Chandra Ablaze is a better card especially for mono red decks.

Thanks. I'll consider that version of Chandra, although I do like the new one because it puts out 2 3/1 creatures doing 4 damage to each opponent, plus they have haste and can then attack.

Kuldotha Rebirth and Feldon of the Third Path are also great artifact play cards for tokens.

Purph has to be the best mono red edh commander, maybe only tied with Daretti but eh

Pandemonium? Even MORE ETB triggers! Beware: Opponents use this ability too!

Conjurer's Closet PUT THIS IN HERE! Just do it. makes MOAR tokens!

Descent of the Dragons Turn all those measly tokens into AWESOME DRAGONS! And also turning opponents big creatures into measly dragons.

I run Genesis Chamber in my Norin the Wary EDH deck, but IDK how well it will work with a purphuros deck b/c most of your creatures entering the battlefield are tokens, while in my deck it is Norin.

Chancellor of the Forge can be a great finisher, assuming you have a lot of tokens already.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker Copy all those token making creatures!

Splinter Twin Copy that token making creature!

Molten Birth?

I had Chancellor of the Forge here in the deck, but ended up taking him out. I don't really run that many creatures, and my tokens don't tend to survive long enough to be useful by the time I get to the mana needed to cast the chancellor. (With chump blocks, sacrificing to things like Goblin Bombardment or Tooth and Claw etc.) I don't like Molten Birth because it's a coin flip card. I hate those. Sure, i could role a dice, but that's also kind of annoying. As stated, Pandemonium can help your opponents. (Especially if they drop a Realm Seekers or Serra Avatar for instance.) If Genesis Chamber wasn't only when a non-token creature entered the battlefield, I'd run it. Splinter Twin doesn't have too many targets, and kiki-jiki is out of budget range for me.

If Genesis Chamber worked with tokens, it would go infinite by itself. Would be awesome.

You could put in Warstorm Surge, but it's a little expensive.

Yeah, Impact tremors is pretty much doing the same thing as Warstorm Surge most of the time, as most creatures that enter the battlefield are 1/1 goblins, thopters, or humans.

Beetleback Chief is another token generator; goes well with Goblin Warrens if you want to go heavy on little green men.
