Stranglehold definitely needs to be in my deck. As for Ruination, I feel like BM is overall the better card in my deck seeing as I can get evasion with some Mountainwalk, plus I keep Cavern (and less importantly, but still important Nykthos).
Feel free to make suggestions for more optimality out of my deck Dunadain, ay.lobo, and/or NarejED. All of the cards in my deck are explained as to their significance, but I'd love to see all of your sides.
Purph's tier placement seems alright. I think he's placed right about where he needs to be. Tier 2 works as well, but he isn't as consistently a turn 2-4 win like the others. If he was played more competitively, maybe he would be valued closer to that second tier, but being in a mono-colored deck (that also leans heavy on its commander) limits its potential/resilience.

I've been recommended Thornbite Staff many times for that combo, but I've always turned it down for the fact that it really only does work with other cards.
All of my combo pieces thus far can pull a lot of weight on their own (e.g. Mana Echoes, or even Skirk Prospector) but unlock even more power in their respective combos. Thornbite Staff just doesn't pull enough weight on it's own, in my opinion.
I thank you for stopping by and leaving me your suggestion, Maizena!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting, BobbyTheNewbie! It means a lot!
And yeah, Krenko truly shines with Purph out...unfortunately, my playgroup knows that and spot removals/counters him 9/10 times! Hahaha.

Turn 6 win with only 2 lands in my opening hand. Not too shabby! I really like this deck, so +1 from me!

Thanks for the love! I've actually never seen Hostility before, haha. That's definitely an interesting card, thundering1! I don't know if I have enough burn spells to really maximize that in the deck, but nonetheless it's a cool card!
With Massive Raid, I actually just replaced Burn at the Stake with it about 2 weeks ago, haha. I actually think Burn at the Stake is more powerful, but I really wanted the instant speed that Massive Raid provided.
Again, thanks a ton for the comment and for showing me a neat new card, friend!

TemnoTsar, Thornbite Staff is great with Krenko, but I've passed on it before for the sole fact that it does not do much on its own (without another combo piece). I try to have my combo pieces be strong cards on their own, but increasingly powerful in conjunction with other combo pieces.
Abres_Tenelles, thanks for the love, friend! I have stumbled across/been suggested both Chancellor of the Forge and Furnace of Rath before. The former is a great card, but by the time I get to play him I should be close to closing the game down already. The latter is fantastic. It works well for decks like mine; however, it isn't my personal taste. Nothing wrong with the card, just not my style!
I try to stray away from chaos cards, which makes Capricious Efreet a tough pick. And War Elemental was in my deck not too many revisions ago, but I decided to scrap him for more hoser cards (which was a tough cut...).
Thank you both for your comments and suggestions! I really appreciate it.

I really like Chaos Warp in mono-red because of that very reason, but like you said, I don't know if I could find a good enough spot for it.
I'll definitely keep that in mind if a spot even remotely becomes vacant, because being able to tell an enchantment "no" in mono-red is fantastic! Haha.
Thanks for the comment, Hybrow!

Why didn't you just update your Spring Into Death deck list? There's only like 2 cards different, haha.
Now on to the real meat:
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed Combo
- Turn 1: Play a one drop ramp creature.
- Turn 2: Play Buried Alive and fetch Mike and Triskelion.
- Turn 3: Play Victimize, bring Mike and Trike out and ping infinitely to win.
Or tutor for Defense of the Heart and win the turn after you cast it.
Necrotic Ooze Combo
- Play Buried Alive or Survival of the Fittest.
- Grab and put Triskelion and Phyrexian Devourer into the graveyard, and get Necrotic Ooze into play.
- Make sure Necrotic Ooze gets out last if using Survival to tutor them.
- Remove all cards from your library to burn opponent(s) for the CMC of all cards in your library.
Once it's out, the only thing that can interrupt this is Split Second since you can respond by adding and removing counters.
Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord Combo
This requires some knowledge of how the stack works.
- Exile cards from your library until Phyrexian Devourer's ability is put on the stack.
- In response to the ability, continue exiling cards to beef him up more.
- Still before allowing the sacrifice to resolve, sack him to Jarad to smack your opponents for a ton of damage, similarly to the aforementioned Ooze-combo.
Colorless Mana Combo
- Have/get Ashnod's Altar in play.
- Play Nim Deathmantle.
- Play Grave Titan, pop up two 2/2 tokens.
- Sack the two tokens to Altar, then sack Titan to get a total of six .
- Use 4 of that to make Deathmantle grab Titan back and get you two more tokens
Repeat this as many times as desired, netting 2 colorless mana every loop.

Both are great goblin decks. Obviously, goblins can be budget, so cut and add what you like. Best of luck!

Plus, I definitely don't want to drop $200+ on Might just yet. ;)

For some reason, my notifications are displaying 3 times for one notification. Do you know what is going on there, or is it just me?
