Wow...that card seems to fit the Purphoros/tokens theme really well. I think I'll test this card to see how it does. Pretty mediocre on an empty board but insane with tokens or Muzzio's Preparations.
Quote from "hopefulhawkeye »Also, this card just wins with those who run palinchron and sneak attack (also 5 lands). Granted it's a lot of work to pull off this combo, but several cubes have the pieces already so I thought I'd note it so someone can try to pull that off.
However, as a mono-red or agressive deck curve topper...
Quote from jamis »It dawned on me recently how much better Purphoros has gotten since he was printed. Red's 3cmc slot is full of token makers now, which helps Purphoros deal damage the turn he comes into play. Not only the 3cmc slot, but Kari Zev, Skyship Raider is another recent printing at 2cmc that works great with Purphoros.
