Yo yo!

I'd consider taking out Myr Battlesphere it just isn't doing anything outside of KCI.

I would try to find a spot for some of these:

Mycosynth Lattice use your lands on combo turns, make your dorks useful late game as artifacts to sac

Hope of Ghirapur on flavor recurrable answer to a problematic player

Weatherlight card selection for days in this deck

Nevinyrral's Disk + Cyclonic Rift deck needs more interaction

Rhystic Study + Mystic Remora (these two could help cut tutors)

Trading Post is an all star in a deck like this

Buried Ruin is a shoo in

Metalworker is a no brainer

Cranial Plating could be saucy

Demonic Tutor or Vampiric Tutor in place of Lim-Dul's Vault

All the moxen instead of dork mana like Gilded Goose

Ad Nauseam is just the best and your curve is low enough especially if you cut the battlesphere.

Marionette Master I am glad to see is gone.

Generally I'd consider on cutting down on cards that don't do much outside of trying to win with KCI and replace those with ways to win without your graveyard which seems to be the weak point (beatdown seems like a possible plan with enough buffs). Tainted Strike could make sense here. Also it pains me to say Craterhoof Behemoth because that card is lazy AF but that or even the more subdued Pathbreaker Ibex could be options.

I agree with gingerthewritingdog, that Heliod could be nice here. You can also try Trading Post as it works really well with Angelic Accord. Lurrus of the Dream-Den also works with many of the cards in your deck, particularly when used to loop Martyr of Sands. Hope this helps.

Trading Post seems good given that youll have lots of disposable creature tokens and lots of artifacts

Spot on with the maybe board, just a more visible acquire board for each deck. Tough call on what to cut for both vamp and protection, at this point it's down to the few cards that aren't either combo pieces or cards that find combo pieces. Ophiomancer and Trading Post are ridiculous value engines, but I think they might get the axe. Tho I could also see it being Phyrexian Plaguelord and Syr Konrad, the Grim as they're a bit expensive cmc-wise for combo pieces while not having much in the way of immediate value.

Thanks Grind! Trading Post is awesome and was in the deck but I took it out to make room to try out Efficient Construction. It might have the leg up here because it is an actual artifact. I wish that it made artifacts and not white goats though, but it is extremely versatile and provides a lot of options. Phyrexian Reclamation is one of my all-time favorite cards! I did not originally include it because it did not have direct artifact synergy but probably go great in this deck. I'll have to pick up another copy. I don't usually run tutors, but I like your suggestions! No direct combos here as I usually lean toward value and synergy. Thank you very much for taking the time to comment and for your feedback! It is very much appreciated.

Hey, thanks for taking the time to write down the ideas and feedback! There’s some things here i’ve considered already but definitely some new ones too.

Here goes.

Infinite: Let me start off by saying that I’m not looking to add any infinite (mana or damage) combo’s that are too straightforward. In my playgroup it’s kinda not done and i agree for the most part that commander’s not about finding a two-card combo asap.

Ashnod's Altar is a nice card and would probably do a decent job, but i think it’s mostly the infinite potential you’d play it for. I actually removed the altar + deathmantle combo from my Muldrotha deck because people were complaining too much (:

Trading Post > Daretti, Scrap Savant This might be a good swap. Daretti’s not very resilient, so mostly it just gets you one reanimation or a faithless loot if the GY is empty. I also like how it gives your creatures utility when they die. Good idea.

Godo, Bandit Warlord (see infinite)

Heirloom Blade seems decent, it would mostly work on dragons i think? Do you know if “artifact” counts as a creature type for the blade? Otherwise it’s just dragons that have a decent chance here, and i’m sure that’s not enough. Equip for 1 makes it manageable. Seems similar to Shifting Shadow

I didn’t even know Reiterate before now so thanks for the introduction. I guess both have their perks, but i feel i prefer ricochet because it’s a more “over the top” effect. Interesting that it can go infinite with big rituals, though you do need 5 + 6 up front right?

Yeah i only just learned Zirilan of the Claw exists through TO, will definitely make my 99 once i find (/order) one. I’m sure i prefer purph as commander, but zirilan is very cool too.

Fun Cards

The fun cards you mentioned can create quite the havoc! I don’t think i’ll add any of them soon because they break the mold of what i’m trying to do a little bit, though Indomitable Creativity seems pretty decent. Though i’m not sure I like how my artifact removal might give my oppo’s even more powerful stuff.

Thanks again!

PS: could you +1 if you like it? Then we become #1 purph on T/O!

Awesome build! I'm a big Purphoros fan and I've been debating about how to find the sweet spot between dragons and artifacts with Purphoros, and I think you've done it (or are close to doing it) here.

I had the following cards that I wanted to point out to you as possibilities, and I'm curious what your thoughts are around them:

  • Ashnod's Altar: Combos very well with both Myr Battlesphere and Nim Deathmantle, creating infinite ETBs and mana. It also works great as a way to gain mana if you can't keep your big creatures around after sneaking them out. Lastly, you can sacrifice your opponents creatures when you combo with your steal effects, like Molten Primordial

  • Trading Post over Daretti, Scrap Savant: Trading Post isn't susceptible to being attacked and can be recurred (I see it's in your maybe board, but I wanted to stress this).

  • Godo, Bandit Warlord: You already have Helm of the Host, so why not complete the combo? It's also a great way to find Nim or Skullclamp.

  • Heirloom Blade: I need to test this more, myself, but this is great in a deck that wants more draw options and, specifically, wants to draw creatures. You can use it to find dragons or artifact creatures in most cases, but can also be used with golems, humans, and goblins.

  • Reiterate over Wild Ricochet: I like Reiterate better, purely because we can reuse it and because you have Mana Geyser, which can create infinite mana.

  • Zirilan of the Claw: Another card in your maybe board that I think deserves more attention. This can function as another "commander" type card that can get our deck going, easing our reliance on purph-daddy a little bit. I consider this another Sneak Attack card.

Other fun ideas: I like putting a little disruption in my Purph deck, so I've added some of the following cards. I don't know if they can fit in here, but I think they help cover some of Purph's weaknesses while still being "fun" cards to play with and against.

  • War's Toll: Stop people from countering our Purph-daddy.

  • Wild Evocation: Great for us, messes with combo players.

  • Insurrection: Alternate win con that works well against players who like to build wide creature decks.

  • Pandemonium: A great way to get some additional value from our creatures while, hopefully, helping our opponents board clear one another until we get to our mid-game spike in power (hopefully we don't become the target of this card, though!).

  • Indomitable Creativity: I'm on the fence about this one, but it's a fun/flexible removal spell that also allows us to trade artifact tokens or mana rocks for stronger things later in the game.

I hope these were at least interesting to read! Again, I love the deck as is, but I wanted to share some other ideas as well.

Looks cool,
some more ideas for your maybeboard: i like the recursion options Trading Post, Phyrexian Reclamation.
also i dont know if you are running any specific combos or if you are avoiding tutors but seems like Unwinding Clock is powerful enough that you would like to search for it - Fabricate and Tezzeret the Seeker and Whir of Invention are all playable
