Absolutely. Draw power is always a weakness in decks; I'm very familiar with that weakness, unfortunately. Glad I could help.

master274. Ah, If you want us to compare decks, that was an unusual way of asking.
Where Krenko decks tend to be speedy and death by goblin tokens in some fashion, Purphoros is consistent and uses all kinds of tokens.
In terms of threats, Krenko and Purphoros are both big threats. Difference is that Krenko is easily killed, Purphoros as an indestructible enchantment, not so easy to kill.
Krenko decks have an anthem theme to them (spawn tribal tokens, make them huge!) which makes them stuck from things like Ghostly Prison or Dueling Grounds. Purphoros decks focuses on Purphoros' ETB ability which makes decks have a weakness against Torpor Orb.
In terms of durability and versatility, I would still stay with a Purphoros deck. A 4 pod game I played last Sunday included many board wipes and destruction. Nevinyrral's Disk was even used twice. I had to kill my Krenko with the rest of the board. It was a long game (turn 13), versus Odric, Wanderer Maelstrom, and Oloro decks, yet Purphoros endured until the end and won. Oh, and it was fun!
Anyways, yeah, those are my thoughts when comparing Krenko to Purphoros. Not necessarily our decks, but a general comparison.

Hi again, master274. I'm not sure what you were asking about in your last comment. Could you clarify?

Curious, why did you decide to make a Zur deck if you're fairly new? I'm just wondering because these decks tend to be really expensive.

Hi there. Firstly, go goblins! Hmm... So much to recommend. From the top of my head:
Mogg Infestation- doubles your goblin count
Goblin Warrens- goblins for goblins
Quest for the Goblin Lord- a cheaper anthem to boost your creatures
Shared Animosity- huge boost to combat damage
Myriad Landscape- only land I could think of at the moment for non basic land
On a sidenote, you may want to think about one of red decks greatest weakness: draw power.

Nice! I myself use the Quest for Pure Flame. I used to use Curse of Bloodletting, but it was too singular, it only targeted one opponent. So I switched to the cheaper guy that lets me choose when to use it to annihilate the whole board together for just .

Hmm... Do you have an issue with Uril killed by counter cards or a board woo when you play him? Are you able to cast him again for 7 in a game? I think you may have too many auras, and could substitute some of them for ramp cards.

Curious. How well do you do when you play another sliver deck?

Hi, this may sound odd, but what is your deck supposed to do? Example: Death by commander damage (voltron), lots of small and fast creatures (aggro), stopping opponents by doing stuff till you do yours (stax-ish). This would clarify things before recommending things to push in or out. :)

Interesting... How goes the mana in this deck? Especially with a heavier Commander cost... Have you thought about maybe adding more mana? Cards to ponder are like: Marble Diamond, Land Tax, Mind Stone, Coldsteel Heart, and Pearl Medallion.

Those guys definitely.know what's up. Good recommendations. I'd put those in, as for recommending what to pull out... Akki Underminer. As a 1/1, he's always going to be blocked. Goblin Gardener. He costs as much as a Ruination (recommend btw), but he only gets rid of one land. And what do you think of Dictate of Erebos instead of Grave Pact? He costs one more, but has flash and he's not super black mana heavy to cast.

Hmm... When I made my Purphoros deck, the main thing I noticed in the beginning was the hand problem. Do you have an issue of having few cards in hand? Sensei's Divining Top is the first thing in my head, but you can't go wrong with an Outpost Siege either. :)

Haha! First time I've seen a Commander like this. Awesome! Anyways, i was just going to recommend a few cards and take my leave. Grafted Exoskeleton, to put on your commander for an extremely quick game. Insurrection, a bit pricey of a card, but you get to take everyone's guys. Great wincon. And maybe Dragonmaster Outcast to give you a sac-able guy in every turn by the time your commander comes out. Just random thoughts to mull over.
