Legendary Enchantment Creature — God
As long as your devotion to red is less than five, Purphoros isn't a creature.
Other creatures you control have haste.
: You may put a red creature card or an artifact creature card from your hand onto the battlefield. Sacrifice it at the beginning of the next end step.

Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded Discussion
5 days ago
Thanks :-) I'm giddy with the thought of having an army of Chandras on board. I think Chandras are the most common PW and one I most one to build (though a battalion of Gideons is also funny). Figuring out the curve/balance on this will be little challenging. I'm going to fiddle around with it some and appreciate the suggestions.
I started adding some cards into inventory and it's giving me an estimate of what it would cost to buy the remaining cards, which is nice. Maybe there will be some sweet card upgrades with the Chandra Spellbook coming out next month.
There's a number of red decks I've been thinking about and might try developing some and putting them up here. The Lady of the Mountain would be cool flavor but probably not enough to bother. I want also want to a double themed deck with double damage, double strike, double attacks, probably with Obosh, the Preypiercer. I've been think about a Sneak Attack type deck with Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded or Feldon of the Third Path. Probably similar kinds of deck building and balance issues for both or monored generally.

@bankrupt_on_selling I've used Xenagos, God of Revels in the past, and it was always a good card. I swapped it out for Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded recently and I've been liking that better. Haste is so important that it could be correct to run both.
I'm much more tepid on See the Unwritten and Selvala's Stampede. They seem awfully high variance, and I think I'd rather run tutors in their place. I'm sure they're fun when they work though - just not my style.
Scroll Rack is absolutely great, and it was with great reluctance that I took it out of the deck a while back. I was lacking in card advantage engines, and Lifecrafter's Bestiary offered both card advantage and filtering. It may well find its way back in, but it waits on the sidelines for now.

He used to see a lot of play. Hellkite Tyrant and Insurrection were the big red finishers early on in EDH. However, the format has evolved since and both spells are pretty slow and easy to see coming. Like mentioned above, the Tyrant is pretty solid in decks which can quickly capitalize on the dragon's ability (i.e. Feldon of the Third Path/Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded decks) or synergizes well with the deck's strategy (i.e. Artifact/Dragon decks). Outside of that though, it's an expensive card (both CMC and $$) that won't provide any immediate value and it will immediately draw all the hate from the rest of the table.
Analogous cards to me are Felidar Sovereign and Black Market. Both are very strong cards that can win you games, but each have a high CMC and require a delay before you can truly benefit from their abilities, all while drawing the ire of the table.

I would go with 3x Anax, 3x Torbran as they are legendary and I would also drop 2x Embercleave because Legendary and situational / high cost vs control decks. Thats 4 less cards, instead I would add 4x Rimrock Knight to boost your Fervent Champion first strike or to deal 2 more damage to face.
Also don't see the use of Chandra, Acolyte of Flame as you don't have anything to revive. She will be only be 2x 1/1 in 90% of yours games. Maybe add Rowan, Fearless Sparkmage instead to remove 2 blockers or 2x Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded as the devotion to red is very high in this deck.

So I missed the OG Theros. I know, I know...
But I have Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded and I enjoy the sneak attack mechanic built into the card. I'm curious if he works better, mono-style in the driver seat, or as a passenger for a Rakdos commander like Chainer, Nightmare Adept or Grenzo, Dungeon Warden?
Thoughts? And how would you build him?

An option more of a side grade to your Sweltering Suns is Anger of the Gods so you can just exile the annoying creature instead and avoiding the death triggers of them as well. you also might like using Dragon Tempest so you can get your dragons haste and begin pinging your opponent when you drop dragons like your Scourge of Valkas does. Stormbreath Dragon is also a good sideboard card against big white decks since it won't get hurt. my last suggestion would be Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded for the same haste to your board but also a way to cheat out a extra dragon to swing with in a turn.
