Thank you for your thoughts, sonnet666. I definitely went a different route from a goblin tribal deck with Purphoros, God of the Forge. As it stands now, it focuses more on control and less on attacking, especially with cards like Glacial Chasm and Ensnaring Bridge. So far, so good.

Good evening. Thank you HarroHunter and tw0handt0uch for checking my deck out. I understand that you think my deck may be lacking in some expensive ramp cards, but even the Purphoros primer deck listed here doesn't use those cards. Mind Stone is good for draw power later on and Coldsteel Heart synergizes well as a snow card (and about a third of my deck). I mostly wanted to bring up the fact that I think that Purphoros could be a better commander with ETB cards like Norin the Wary rather than a full on Goblin Tribal deck.

I believe that a Purphoros deck needs to be more than a Tribal-goblin deck. If left to be purely goblin-like, you tend to miss out on amazing and needed cards, like Norin the Wary, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Tempt with Vengeance, and Grinning Ignus, just to name a few. Infinite combos are also awesome, but as has very minimal amount of tutor cards, I just leave them alone. However I do list them in my description in case a player wants to have them too.
With some suggestions, I have lowered the CMC in this deck. Even with Blasphemous Act, the range is as little as 2.69 (as you'd hardly ever spend 9 mana to cast that card). I've also changed up a third of the deck by adding Snow-Covered Mountain and and made it more defensive against other competitive decks. Hmm... However, I do not believe that Purphoros needs a card like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. My goal with Purphoros is to not let him have enough devotion to be a creature, as even indestructible creatures are more prone to removals more than indestructible enchantments, case being Swords to Plowshares and Terminus.
I hope that you would consider checking to see if my deck is worth joining the list here. Or any comments/suggestions. Thank you for your time.
