In commander, having cheap and instant speed interaction is preferable to slower spells with more value. As such use something like Disenchant and Swords to Plowshares over Solemn Offering. Especially if you add something like Sunforger to the equation. When you run few interaction spells and little card draw, a good rule of thumb is to play cards that answer a wide variety of spells rather than specific ones. So play cards like Chaos Warp or Generous Gift (removes anything from the board, even lands!) over cards like Lightning Helix (only hits creatures and is limited to small ones).

Boros isn't exactly known for their awesome card draw. Wheel of Fortune is not worth the pricetag in this deck, unless you already just have a spare copy, I would not include it. It most likely helps an opponent more than you, and it actually leads to a lot of unfun games if played early, since one or two players might just get completely manascrewed. It is good in Storm, but this is not Storm ;) Try to leverage your commander instead. There are a ton of Arcane Encyclopedia-esque cards. My personal favorite is Phyrexian Portal, a great political card.

Consider whether you want Basalt Monolith in your deck. It is far and away the best card in your deck as it allows you to immediately go infinite. But is this the gameplay you are seeking? If you want this you can jam in Gamble, Enlightened Tutor, Planar Bridge, Hoarding Dragon etc. Also Grim Monolith is a second Basalt Monolith but better. Avoid cards that only function as infinite mana outlets like Energy Bolt, try to find cards like Walking Ballista.

There are generally better mana rocks out there than the ones you are playing. I don't like to have my mana rocks take up the same turn as my commander, so maybe replace Boros Locket and Commander's Sphere with Talisman of Conviction, Boros Signet and Mind Stone.

I'd definitely drop Implements of Sacrifice and Treasure Keeper, and recommend dropping Cathodion, Order of Whiteclay, and Feldon too. Seems like it could use more sac outlets like Arcbound Ravager, Goblin Bombardment, Culling Dais, Dark-Dweller Oracle, Fanatical Devotion, Jinxed Idol, Krark-Clan Shaman, and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer. I'd also think about any of the creatures that make Treasure when they enter or die, Brass's Bounty, Smothering Tithe, Hangarback Walker, Hoarding Dragon, Scrapyard Recombiner, Servo Schematic, Bloodfire Infusion

First off, GOOD LUCK!!!

So, you've got a 4/4, with flying lifelink and deathtouch, for 3cmc in RWB, already a monster

They want "test the color pie" and ‘exile matters’. I noticed you said a white card, do they care that it is multi-colored?

Your giving your opponents an opportunity to exile cards to prevent combat damage, which is risky because they are allowing you the opportunity to cast their shit from exile.

What would a deck featuring this look like? You would have your typical exile target creature ect. but you could also have Necropotence and get full use of your cards that are exiled. Theater of Horrors, Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast, flicker Hoarding Dragon, You can even use cascade to cast something it wouldn't normally hit on while your searching for something with less cmc. Spinerock Knoll and the rest can be popped early. Tons of ways to get use out of this.

A very powerful effect that does make exile matter. Good work.

I put in Hoarding Dragon and removed Hoofprints of the Stag for a Staff of Domination. Thanks for the tips! I'm still working on tweaking it.

Hoarding Dragon would allow you to search for your artifacts for combos.
and Luminarch Ascension is an upgrade over Hoofprints of the Stag

Cards up for consideration: Getting carried away looking at ETB creatures! Sneak Attack, Dragon Mage, Strionic Resonator, Scourge of the Throne, Balefire Dragon, Combustible Gearhulk, Dockside Extortionist, Fanatic of Mogis, Godo, Bandit Warlord Burning Sun's Avatar, Hoarding Dragon, Molten Primordial, Ox of Agonas, Terror of Mount Velus, Thunder Dragon, Dream Pillager, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Hellkite Tyrant, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker(This one goes infinite with Zealous Conscripts so that may be out...) Ricardo mentioned these ones Cavalier of Flame, Fires of Invention, Purphoros, God of the Forge

Doesn't seem like you need a ton more draw cause you get to reuse creatures, but these were mentioned too if you do. Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, Magus of the Wheel, Wheel of Fate

Honesty not sure if this is a good add (very hit or miss) but I think that knowing of its existence is nice... Mindclaw Shaman.

I guess if you are holding Dualcaster Mage for someone else's spells then that's fine but if not maybe you would play Wort, the Raidmother because she could be better (and makes tokens!).

In creature heavy match ups both Molten Primordial and Sepulchral Primordial are fun.

Hoarding Dragon is an excellent tutor for an artifact like Sundial of the Infinite as long as he isn't exiled.

Lastly, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed will generate a ton of tokens (you have 40+ creatures in your deck) and can be a ok sac outlet.

Hope you found these suggestions insightful! +1

I'm gonna offer some constructive criticism. It's just my opinion, and I haven't played Purphoros (just Feldon), so if I'm wrong I'm wrong. Eldrazi are really strong in Feldon, so it would make sense that they would be strong in Purphoros if it can be pulled off. But it's just so hard to pull it off. 2 cards pull it off. They are Painter's Servant and the good old Sneak Attack . The only tutors that can get those are Gamble , which is a gamble, and Imperial Recruiter , but only for the painter. Attacking with any eldrazi with annihilator is great, but honestly, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger doesn't seem that great with only his attack trigger, and just once before he dies as well. And he can be chump blocked. Casting eldrazi is also an option, but the deck lacks sufficient ramp to get to double digits very quickly, giving the rest of the table time to weather the cards by the time they come out. These cards become ridiculously powerful with Feldon of the Third Path or Mimic Vat out. Goblin Engineer and Hoarding Dragon can tutor mimic vat. But all of this coming together with not enough tutors may be more frustratingly difficult than it is optimistically possible. I don't know if the payoff is worth the risk since I'm not familiar with the deck. I could just be wrong, but that's my ten cents worth.

On another note, you should totally add Hoarding Dragon . You have so many useful artifacts to tutor up from Mimic Vat , to a boardwipe, to ramp, etc. I would take out Magnetic Theft . It can be useful as a combat trick, assuming someone is using lots of equipment, but it doesn't actually steal the equipment. When the owner's turn comes around, they'll just equip it again to their creature (since equip is sorcery speed). It doesn't get you any card advantage, which is the name of the game in Commander, and is also one of Purphoros's biggest weak points.
