Purphoros, God of the Forge

Legendary Enchantment Creature — God


As long as your devotion to red is less than five, Purphoros isn't a creature.

Whenever another creature enters the battlefield under your control, Purphoros deals 2 damage to each opponent.

2R: Creatures you control get +1/+0 until end of turn.

Added him as an additional option to Chandra, nice one! Last that came to my mind, which can swing early for a kill with Haze of Rage was Hazoret the Fervent . Also i added Purphoros, God of the Forge , as another option, easy to score a win with Empty the Warrens . Awesome!

Impact Tremors and Goblin Bombardment are great to, they help burn when creatures enter the battlefield, and instead of falling to a board wipe you can sac them and deal damage instead, i guess Purphoros, God of the Forge would be good too for burn

I haven't played too much since the swap, but I think Liliana, Dreadhorde General is one of the best cards in the deck. She's a combination of Grave Pact and Dark Prophecy , and with a Phyrexian Altar out you can draw a ton of cards and trigger a ton of "dies" effects from Blood Artist to actual Grave Pact and the bonus card draw can even lead to extra Purphoros, God of the Forge triggers. While she's good on her own, she really shines when you have at least one or two of the above cards (esp. Phyrexian Altar or Ashnod's Altar) to keep the engine going.

I'm sure Bolas's Citadel would be nuts, too, but I've already got it in two other decks and didn't want to go too overboard on it. Definitely slot it in if you've got one. If you're going to swap one of the cards out for Citadel, though, I would definitely remove God-Eternal Bontu before Liliana.

That’d be a great addition. I’d also really like to add a Purphoros, God of the Forge

I would try to add some more red cards personally to have a more even mana spread as you don't want to ever be locked out of any cards unless you want to only splash red (although red has lots of good cards such as seen below)

Creatures - Captivating Vampire , Tajic, Legion's Edge , Taurean Mauler , Solemn Simulacrum , Divinity of Pride

The Lieges - Balefire Liege , Deathbringer Liege , Ashenmoor Liege

Opponent Creatures ETB Tapped - Authority of the Consuls or Urabrask the Hidden

Removal & Instants - Terminate , Wear / Tear , Vandalblast , Wild Ricochet , Pyroblast

Tutors - Diabolic Tutor , Diabolic Revelation

Boardwipes - Life's Finale , In Garruk's Wake , Decree of Pain

THE WITTLE - Purphoros, God of the Forge

Enchantments - Warstorm Surge , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Curse of Bloodletting , Anger , Impact Tremors , Outpost Siege , Fervor , GREAT CARD FOR YOU Shared Animosity ,

Equips - Any of the swords but Sword of Feast and Famine & Sword of Light and Shadow in particular

Lets start with your CMC. In order for an aggro deck to be fast, the mana curve for the deck needs to be incredibly low to the ground. With that in mind here are some creatures that are all sub-three CMC:

You do also need some cards to add support which you have a few of but these three are pretty hefty; Iroas, God of Victory , Purphoros, God of the Forge and Hero of Bladehold .

You are also gonna need to give your creatures haste, and one of my favorite cards does just that for next to nothing; Mass Hysteria .

Here are a few cards I also think would be really good support, or are staples in this archetype:

I know your goal isn't to nessecarily win via commander damage but these two cards I find are helpful and threaten any opponent usually... Sword of Feast and Famine and Sword of Fire and Ice

Lastly... I know you said you avoided it intentionally but... I think it was a mistake... You need more ramp. The more ramp you have the faster you can play dudes the faster you can kill someone. So Mana Crypt , Sol Ring , Boros Signet , Chrome Mox , etc. I think you should play at least 5 ramp artifacts to really help you get that overwhelming force, because on T4 you now have to live in fear of WoGs

Ok that's all... he said after posting a page long comment... Sorry. <3 If you need help with cuts anything above 4 cmc should be the first things to go with the exception of Cathar's. get your CMC as close to 2 as you can.

Lambofan217 thanks for your suggestion/comment!

I'm indeed very excited about that card, I think it will eventually end up in the deck, replacing Rix Maadi Reveler . By setting up the graveyard with the discards AND providing additional bodies to trigger Purphoros, God of the Forge or fuel sacrifice outlets, the card seems to truly do it all. I guess the ability is a bit more conditional than Rix Maadi Reveler but since this functions as a toolbox deck this shouldn't be an issue.

The Five cards I would suggest to max out on your devil spells and damage output. Number 1 Impact Tremors adds a lot of value for playing token generating spells. Number 2 is Goblin Bombardment , this offers you responses to explosions and such that provide you with extra damage output. Third is Bonus Round doubles up your instant and sorcery spells providing extra damage and nice combos. Fourth is Gratuitous Violence , doubled creature damage for you. Fifth cards is Purphoros, God of the Forge , works the same as impact tremors with more value plus hard to remove since it has indestructible. Cards like Battle Hymn and Pyretic Ritual could also find a place but that's more play preference and assessing if you need the additional mana for your combos or win cons to function properly
