Good evening, thegigibeast, NarejED, and everyone here. Its been a while, but Im ready to resubmit my Purphoros, God of the Forge deck again since it finally hit 100 upvotes. Alright, let me begin my case.
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 along (also a personal preference not to have infinite combos here). 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. I've also changed up a third of the deck by adding Snow-Covered Mountain and all. 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 Dictate of Erebos.
I hope that you would reconsider my request to see if my deck is worth joining the list here. Or any comments/suggestions. Thank you for your time.

Also a Ruby Medallion would make your deck cheaper to play for you.

Abres_Tenelles, hey. Thanks, Snake Basket is definitely an advantage over goblin tribal Purphoros decks. It's funny you mentioned Descent of the Dragons, as I took it out probably a day before. Love the card. Amazing factor. But... Hmm, it wasn't the game ender I wanted it to be. If I had it in hand, I had to wait for a couple of tokens, and stuff tends to get blown up or die around me. Even giving my opponents a dragon was not fun, lost a few games like that. I ended up swapping it for a boardwipe, Starstorm, which not not made the deck a bit cheaper, but also gave me more of an edge to control the field a bit more. I'll have to check you deck out. Thanks!

Haha! EnividWodahs, thanks. What a hell of an oversight! It's changed.

Hey, Hybrow. True. I may want to test out that card when it comes out. Sounds like a game ender type deal too. The injury part is a bit weak, but I can see it useful for pinging off a cheap creature or redirecting damage to a planeswalker.

acht_deck_manager, hey. I used to have Goblin Sharpshooter in the deck, but without a guarantee kill for him (like with Basilisk Collar) there wasn't a good point to have him out. He would just sit and look cool.
Hellrider is a cool card. But I would rather have him in a deck that attacks often to make the most of him, like a Krenko, Mob Boss attack deck, then a spawn token deck like this. I think it's mostly cause my pods tend to have a lot, a lot of boardwipes.
I did also have Empty the Warrens here in my deck at one point, but with the cost of the spell, trying to storm without going broke, is pretty tough. It's an amazing card with Grinning Ignus, that's for sure!
Lots of good cards, it's tough to think of what to switch out for possible change. Good thoughts.
