Purphuros, God of Token Decks.

My favorite God. Side from Red finally having a REALLY insane card in EDH this also seems like it can make it into various R/X decks in standard.

The big daddy of Big Red, I am looking forward to seeing how much damage this man can inflict, especially with monsters like Assemble the Legion and Elspeth, Sun's Champion in the same format. Awesome, awesome card.

Purphoros says, "Assemble the Legion!!"

Currently the highest rated legendary creature in the entirety of MtG. It is the 3rd highest rated legendary, just before Gaea's Cradle and Tolarian Academy. It's higher rated that Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite.

Holy crap.

I'd say he's the best of the god cards. Not my favorite, but the closest to being broken. Play Increasing Devotion the turn after to deal damage to an opponent equal to half of their starting life.

I do like that he's synergetic with his weapon, Hammer of Purphoros.

@ Ganjalf
Hostility doesn't trigger off of Purphoros's triggered ability, only off spells.

However, Hostility allows you to effectively double the damage of a burn spell and get creatures in the process. In multiplayer it gets even better because you are damaging everybody and not just the opponent you were targeting with the burn spell.

10 damage worth of burn would turn into 10 creatures and 20 damage to each opponent.

Rise of the Hobgoblins becomes the most mana efficient Fireball EVER with this big daddy in play!

I almost hate to share it...
Cloudstone Curio
Crimson Kobolds
Crookshank Kobolds
Kobolds of Kher Keep

the Curio also goes conveniently with:
Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle
okay, rules question: can you stack the trigger with this and with Bloodthirst so that a Furyborn Hellkite triggers itself into a 12/12 ?
