I've actually got the weirding card but I've never used it myself. And personally speaking I'd only ever have a problem with the null rod or stony silence lock and not the forced creatures aspect. Not being able to play magic because of magic is a huge dick move to me so sorry if I came across a bit angry.

@Winterblast Your last card pairings doesn't need the creature creating pieces. If you do those while everything is an artifact then lands will just die as a state-based action being 0/0 creatures. Null Rod and Mycosynth Lattice works just the same if you used Stony Silence. Nobody would have mana anymore and would be left to whatever creatures they had on the board/what they can free cast in their hands/graves.

Also, if you really do try to pull of that particular combo, then, and I'm not joking here, you're an evil heartless b#$%@& and shouldn't play magic that way. I know its in the game for people to do potentially, but that's the stuff that kills the will to play the game ever. Don't do that to people please.

Said on Zombie Nation...


I take it you've not tried to update for the Kaladesh block of cards that came out? I can understand why, but just as fair warning that a lot of people will either not say anything when they notice you don't have certain cards like Fatal Push, or else they'll be very pushy about it.

Most degenerate combo I've ever seen? An Elf ball player abusing The Emrakul shuffle effect and Survival of the Fittest interactions to get infinite turns. This was in a "casual" game of EDH mind you so it was "legal", but no less evil to pull off on god damn turn three.

Sad part is this same player player uber fast like this is why I quit Yugioh a while back and swapped to MTG where I thought I could avoid that type of thing.

Which, I kinda do if only in how there's a thousand other ways to play Magic and still win, so not everyone is playing that fast.

Okay, so presuming that Outnumber and Gempalm Incinerator are not what you'd want, those being creatures only for targeting, then Massive Raid and/or Last-Ditch Effort are your "better" options over Burn at the Stake. While both cards are less damaging, and the effort destroys your own board, the ability to do so use them in response to a board wipe or have them waiting for a sudden spike in damage highly underrated.

Okay, so I realize you have a ton of goblin-centric synergies in addition to your Purphoros plays, so I'm about to unload a bunch of stuff that works as infinite ETB effects and just let you look over them. I've never piloted a Purph/goblin deck even so I'm not about to know where to cut unless you drop all aggro for full combo plays (which I again state I wouldn't know if that is better or even what you're wanting). Anyway. The list of possibilities as follows:

Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle and any creature that creates one or more creatures when it enters or dies.Suggested options not already in your build include Pia Nalaar (for her low cost), Tuktuk the Explorer (same reason), or alternatively Su-Chi. Some of these can work with token creation on death due to the triggers going on the stack at once. By sacking the creature for mana 2 mana, you then stack the triggers to get the token that you can also sac for mana in response to the mantle trigger, thus having 4 mana to revive the first creature.

Mana Echoes does have an infinite loop with Goblin Warren and Phyrexian Altar (yes I get you aren't using it but Skirk Prospector will do the same thing). The Echoes will generate the colorless mana you need, and then one of the three can be sacked for R, and then use it all to sack the other 2 goblins for 3 new tokens. This is a "closed loop" because it doesn't generate extra tokens, but you do get infinite colorless mana in addition to the ETB triggers.

Given the right mana rocks/mana ramp Paradox Engine and Ancestral Statue can create an infinite loop of spell casting for storm triggers or also creature etb. The same is true for Cloudstone Curio and Cryptic Gateway with any or your creatures that make mass tokens ETB. Maybe something could be done with Akki Rockspeaker too if you had cost reduction?

Mana Echoes also can make Krenko, Mob Boss or even Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker go infinite when used with Umbral Mantle and/or Sword of the Paruns (and the right board state).

I can also mention that you are not about to find anything close to enchantment hate in mono-red except through Apocalypse, so I really wouldn't bother changing it out unless you'd want something like Descent of the Dragons in for even more tokens.

Burn at the Stake does happen to have several options for replacement if you'd prefer instant speed effects over easy-ish mass damage.

Lastly, would you say you're ever in need of more combat supportive effects like what Hellrider and Hero of Oxid Ridge or even Bloodmark Mentor and Goblin Wardriver?

Also, sorry for the wall-o-text.

So I forget, have you already tried making an article that showcases the different ways that each color treats artifacts? Like why is it really that there is little to nothing in black that deals with them? Green I can understand not having any positive effects, but why would black have no interaction at all?

Said on Nothing to Fear...


Distorting Lens or Scuttlemutt maybe? I certainly would try to but Dark Betrayal mainboard if you did.

Also what with the "vorthos" tag at the top?

SOooo, I know I'm getting hate mail for this, but wouldn't Chandra be closer to Squee? Cause yeah, she's dangerous, but she's really more of a mascot for the group than an in the background guide. That's Tamiyo's job.

So has anyone here ever gotten to play Prismatic? And am I right in thinking that it is the format that everyone has to have a mono colors deck and be sitting in WUBRG order?

I sadly have never gotten to try this myself, but hearing about this actually inspired my first attempts at gathering cards for Edh decks and is what really got me going for collecting cards so it always felt like my pseudo-favorite.

I would say EDH is my favorite format, if only due to the number of times I've tried it over others, but for someone who was pretty new to the game I actually won my first limited draft I ever got into. I've very slowly started to prefer the more deliberate pace of limited over the OTK combos that are in freaking every EDH deck now a days, so that has started to burn me out on it.

Could this be a more typical dragon deck?
