Good evening, enpc and n0bunga. After much thought, I can see the truth to your words. Hmm, I don't think I can afford to put in Mox Diamond just yet. As a monored deck with a low land count, I would still want to see if it is good with this deck. Also, price (waiting on eBay). I can test it online for now. As for the blue target cards... I have looked online, and many monored players have agreed to their prowess. I will rearrange my deck a little and will try to resubmit it when it is adjusted to suit current play. Thank you for the advice. Looking forward to the next meet.

Good morning, enpc. While I thank you for your compliments, I will have do disagree with you about the "staples" you mentioned. Mox Diamond may be tempting, but even then you run the risk of being a card short in the beginning, less durability with an artifact than a basic land (no one would really destroy a basic mountain), and having less synergy with Extraplanar Lens. Not to mention that it's a dead draw during later on in the game, so it's essentially a T1-T3 card. I will have to look into Lotus Petal, so thank you for bringing that up.
I would not consider Red Elemental Blast or Pyroblast good necessary cards in EDH as they are specifically directed at decks. While there are a great number of blue players, there are many that do not just play those colors. For example, I would be holding these dead cards while playing against your Saffi Eriksdotter deck.
It is not a budget deck, as I look for cards that are optimal for Purphoros, but mono- decks tend to be a lot cheaper than most EDH decks. Yes, I do have all the cards on list as well (with Imperial Recruiter now on board), otherwise I would have to carry proxies which aren't really acceptable in most shops I visit around the U.S.
The current featured deck focuses on Goblin-synergy, whereas mine chooses the most optimal ETB creatures of like Norin the Wary and Tempt with Vengeance. I just believe that Purphoros, God of Tokens (Multiplayer EDH Primer) deck has a better understanding of how Purphoros should be than what is currently here.

It has probably been about a year since I commented here. I would like to resubmit my Purphoros, God of the Forge Primer deck here again as a possible feature deck with your amazing list. It is currently the HIGHEST scored Purphoros deck here in TappedOut, and I figured it might be proper to resubmit here once it had been acknowledged as a great primer/deck by other players. I have had competitive EDH players and new EDH players try the deck and were very successful with it.
Thank you for your consideration.
