ay.lobo Deckling

Hello, everyone.

I am a fellow Magic enthusiast who began only a few years ago due to a person I was dating back then in the Army. I'm hooked, and I have been playing often since then. I used to play Modern, and then I got into Standard, and now (thanks to my friends) I am here with Commander decks!

Funny thing to learn about me: I love making decks and watching over people play them more than actually playing them myself.

The way I build my decks is a kind of feeling in the gut. Sometimes, I pick up a card and go "Oh, hey, this __ would be a great card in a __ deck." And then I make one. Haha, it wouldn't ever be perfect on the first draft, and so I would play, and edit, and play it until it feels like it has good synergy.

As always, I look forward to improvements and comments. I'm still learning to use this website, so please be patient with me learning how to use it!

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.

Hybrow, hey. That's a good idea. I'm thinking of possibly replacing Reforge the Soul for it.

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.

Good evening, thegigibeast, NarejED, sonnet666, and everyone here. Its been a while, but Im ready to resubmit my Purphoros, God of the Forge deck again.


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.
