Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded

Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded

Legendary Enchantment Creature — God

Indestructible

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

TypicalTimmy on Where do you personally draw …

My general strategy is to have more spells than the table has removal. I don't worry about one or two people holding up a counterspell or a path to exile. Similarly, I tend to not worry about their plays either.

I get my stuff out faster than the rest of the table, then overwhelm with a force they can't hope to stop.

This tends to make all of my decks very heavily reliant on combat damage and combat tricks, but there are ways to mix that up. In my aforementioned Lathliss deck, I have a bit of cruel control such as with Mudslide and Citadel of Pain, as well as Blood Moon and some others.

Then I passively create damage via Chandra, Awakened Inferno, Impact Tremors, Dragon Tempest, Warstorm Surge, Scourge of Valkas, Terror of the Peaks, Purphoros, God of the Forge and more. Also Sarkhan the Masterless

Ramp, I've got Mana Crypt, Ancient Tomb, Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, Mox Amber, Chrome Mox, Mox Tantalite, Mox Diamond and other staples.

Even cost reduction via Ruby Medallion, cloudkey, Urza's Incubator, Herald's Horn, Dragonlord's Servant and Dragonspeaker Shaman.

I can cheat via Sunbird's Invocation, Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast and Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded - who also serves as a haste enabler on top of like the six other haste enablers in the deck. Oh and Spinerock Knoll.

It even has recursion. For example, Haven of the Spirit Dragon, Vesuva and Thespian's Stage.

...it's like a $1,000 deck... For a $4 Commander, lol

KBK7101 Thanks for the ideas! I have crashing drawbridge in another deck, this one I have Rhythm of the Wild to help with that along with Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded. Reflecting Pool is awesome, and if not for the $30, would probably be in there. I luckily live in the Japan market, so I have got a lot of these in Japanese for a fraction of the cost. For example, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is a $20 card US, in JP less than $6. So I am a bit budget conscious, even though this looks like a $500 deck, its closer to $250 in actual cost. The Dryad is awesome for sure, and $8 on one of the JP sites I use to order cards. Just not sure which creature I would change out, that always becomes the hardest part to keep the synergy while added important things like ramp. Thanks again for the suggestions!

Might I recommend going for haste instead then? Things like Anger, Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded, Fervor, and Hammer of Purphoros are some options. Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves for your commander specifically.

These allow you to immediately trigger dethrone over and over again as you aggressively attack into your opponents. Then you can drop your own board wipes and not care because most or all of your things come back.

I'd take Ilharg, the Raze-Boar out because he doesn't synergize well with titans since their annihilation only triggers on the attack step which is omitted when putting them out with the boar. They already enter attacking, so there is no attack step.

Same with Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded. He works with Blightsteel, but no other creature in your list is an artifact or red.

You could add Serra's Emissary and choose "Creature" which effectively gives all your creatures unblockable.

BrassLord on Torbran Miiiiillllllssssss!

Fun idea! Not sure how married you are to Torbrand as your commander, but Magda, Brazen Outlaw follows with the artifact matters themes, or Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded could be useful to cheat out powerful artifact silver bullets!

If you do stick with the Torbrand train, Pyrohemia can be fits to deal with, lightning bolting every creature and player at instant speed becomes a nightmare!

Trash for Treasure is a fun one as well. Since you have so much artifact recursion, Mindslaver can be a "win con" that can stall your opponents out as you mill them. Memory Jar works in a similar way, able to "mill" 7 cards while setting up your graveyard.

Could also be worth considering some wheel effects. Things like Wheel of Fortune Wheel of Misfortune Wheel of Fate Reforge the Soul Magus of the Wheel and Molten Psyche could be viewed as "mill 7" cards that also set up your own graveyard for recursion. Along that same line of thinking Howling Mine Temple Bell and Font of Mythos can be seen as additional mill effects.

Otherworld Atlas also seems like it could be really fun in your deck! Also, in any deck running the untap keys, I'd recommend giving Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus a try, as it can make your mana production explode!

Some food for thought! Really like the idea and direction of your deck!

ElendVenture on Five Color God Stuff

@greykiller Devotion in for the red gods can be a little tricky sometimes, which is why I ended up adding Altar of the Pantheon to offset that. But since only two of the gods require exclusively red devotion ( Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded , and Purphoros, God of the Forge ), they usually end up with the needed devotion through their other colors without much effort.

But overall, devotion isn't really an issue for me. Having Golos, Tireless Pilgrim as the commander, he usually poops out enough permanents every turn that I don't notice a lack of devotion when it matters. Using Esika, God of the Tree  Flip makes that deck much slower, but I do end up playing her as the commander about half of the time because of the flavor. More than half of the Theros gods are in White and Green though, so I usually end up having a couple of those in the field as creatures pretty early, and the rest of the colors just fill in with devotion as your board presence increases. Mostly you can curb any problems by being more selective with your mulligans, and that just ends up coming through experience.

As for winning, The World Tree changed everything for this deck. Before that I would usually end up winning with a big swing after dumping most of my deck on the field with Omniscience + Enchantress drawing, through Phenax mill if I was feeling cheeky, or through Purphoros damage if I got him out at the beginning of my Omniscience spill. Now it's just too easy to crack The World Tree on turn 6/7 and win with Purphoros damage.

Hello, thanks for your feedback carpecanum I appreciate it very much

At first I tried to fix that "problem" caused by neat devotion numbers, but then I gave it a second thought. There is nothing I can do to prevent Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded being bounced/exiled. And he represents the main part of combo, so he will always be main target. Therefore, I shouldn't worry about targets that will cause devotion problems (:

Thank you again for feedback (:
