lol oops...

Profet93 You know it! Thanks for the suggestions.

Vigilante Justice is not the best card in the deck, but the ability to target creatures has been huge. I found myself with games where Norin would flicker in and out without providing value, so I added it in. In the right meta it can be powerful.

Goblin Engineer -awesome suggestion, I'll try it out!! I might replace [goblin welder] with it - I've had some dead welder games recently.

Check out the above comment for Experimental Frenzy - this card has been huge for me, you can sometimes get 4-5 cards out, especially with Sensei's Divining Top . Pandemonium can backfire, but it's easy enough to hold it if up against a token deck or something. In the vast majority of cases it has been great.

Any card draw you'd recommend besides Endless Atlas ? How has atlas performed? I tried to add as much card draw as I could (except for obvious budget breakers like Wheel of Fortune or now that you mention it, Goblin Settler .

Pyrohemia is absolutely one of the best cards in the deck. Note that you can stack the triggers so as long as norin flickers back in, you don't have to sacrifice it. It's really brutal mono-red control.

how has Sunbird's Invocation performed? I'm hesitant at the idea of a 6 drop enchantment with no immediate impact...

Cloudstone Curio let's you return ETB creatures to hand with Norin, yes. It's a surprisingly powerful mid/late-game value engine. I've won games off of it alone when I've been out of gas and empty handed. Same with Conjurer's Closet . You can stack it so Norin enters and leaves twice, double triggering ETB effects. Great great include

Myrmecodia

Ah, another Norin player. So you must be a man of culture as well! +1 I got some questions for u....

  1. Vigilante Justice seems weak, hows it working for u?

  2. No Goblin Engineer ?

  3. Experimental Frenzy and Pandemonium seem like a double edged sword. How has it worked for u?

  4. Goblin Settler = GOOD TIMES ;)

  5. No Treasure Nabber or are you just trying to blow up their artifacts instead?

  6. Pyrohemia seems cool, do you think that works better than Jaya's Immolating Inferno ? I am tempted to swap them in my build

  7. You dont have much card draw (I dont count looting/rumaging) aside from Combustible Gearhulk, sad robot, Chandra Ablaze, reforge the soul, Skullclamp, tome of legends, mind's eye and mind stone. I see you have play from the topdeck cards so you might be ok, but even in my Norin list that tries to emphasize card draw, I always get F****. They always counter wheels and destroy minds eye or other draw source. Maybe that hasn't been your experience. If it has, with all your basics, Endless Atlas might be worth considering for extra redundancy. I did see your Daretti + Squee there :)

  8. Feldon and Stranglehold ARE A MUST! So much value from Feldon. Strangle stops edric/baral turns, tutors and land fetching (key!).

  9. No Sunbird's Invocation ?

  10. Lastly, since your list is so tuned, I would appreciate some feedback on my list, Norin Naughty Time. My deck is focused/semi-competitive. Our playgroup doesnt like bloodmoon/MLD effects so I can't put those in. Be sure to look at the spoiler for future edits to see what minor changes I will make to it.

BMHKain on Stuff that's important for what ...

10 months ago

NOTE: This is a topic regarding cEDH Boros. If you think there is no hope for it, do NOT post on this. (The Bold should be warning enough...)

After trying to cut some stuff to 100 for some things, I realized, there is some others to do regarding one deck:


Soldier of Fortune, Boros' Final Stand

Commander / EDH* BMHKain

SCORE: 4 | 58 COMMENTS | 583 VIEWS | IN 1 FOLDER


I previously wanted this to be Tier 3, as one joke cEDH deck (Depala, of all things.), did this. But this is a serious attempt by all means. That said, I'll mention some things worth note to get at least just a little bit closer to my goal:

Both of their most recent prints state their abilities differently. Pyroblast has:

Choose one — • Counter target spell if it's blue. • Destroy target permanent if it's blue.

Red Elemental Blast?

Choose one — • Counter target blue spell. • Destroy target blue permanent.

This seems written differently; but I dunno how this is different from the others. Regardless, cEDH usually smiles upon . So I'll leave it to you to decide...

This is a biggie. One person not known for cEDH believes this is a real dud of a wincon. But I'd like some opinions o this. If this really does suck, at least that's 3 cuts so far. Aside from this, Grand Abolisher does wonders here.

This is new as I found that Magistrate's Scepter is just one target for counters; something I know FOR A FACT Boros is NOT good at in the slightest (There, a minus. See? I can agree w/ you too. 0-^) Prototype Portal can imprint any artifact; which can range from an infinite mana via Lotus Petal, or Infinite Turns w/ Ugin's Nexus. Problem? I have little to nothing to destroy the copy is opposed to exiling it. Plus, this is quite expensive; but I don't want to use Final Fortune + Sundial of the Infinite loops; they can be disrupted; besides, this is the only option left (Gonti's Aether Heart is more expensive anyway.). Bonus points for infinite mana in case Ugin's Nexus is a skip. I'll let you decide.

I'm confused about this; happy, but confused. Usually stuff lower than 3 CMC would be fine; but one cEDH Staples lists actually lists her on the main list. runs Dorks, & so few even reach a 3+ toughness. Should I get rid of her for CMC's sake? or should I keep her as a Gamekiller?

W/ so many doing stuff outside of Lifeloss/lifegain, this should be very important to note as others would either Self-Mill via Laboratory Maniac, Maze's End a game, basically put; Wincons that don't depend on Life Total. So, should I put in stuff like these, Goblin Chainwhirler, or other things that can kill life totals? Otherwise, I at least have Altar of the Brood to mill everyone else... XP

After knowing about creatures outside of that can produce Mana, I decided Neheb, the Eternal is no longer enough (It actually requires Damage dealing to make it work; so, I'm thinking of cutting him; considering nobody really wants to damage anyways.). While I could flicker [Farrelite Priest]] & make her new, w/o previous memory, I want to leave it to you; w/ so much Devotion to , Should I rather increase the amount of Plains & decrease the number of Mountains? (I have Blood Moon Anyway...). If she is crap to you, I want to know why; I cannot run Avacyn's Pilgrim you know.

Yes, I get it. Tamiyo's Journal is the only Target of this inspector. That said, Tamiyo's Journal can search for anything. Problem? One target. Not consistent enough, & nobody is recommending a card like Tamiyo's Journal that can also work on its own... Ideas are welcome.

This combo came to me in the form of an Epiphany. After I blow up all lands, I can flicker Fiend Hunter exiling Sun Titan to bring all my lands back; yes, this is possible. Since Lands are 0CMC Permanents, I can bring them all back to my side. even a combo like this can't be stopped by the next part of this charade...

Some of the best cards in this deck so far. It promotes a Prison-Lock for all Graveyards in play. Since this deck should be able to have effects that bypass both of these; I just want to know what to cut due to these...

This also applies to what I can use for Arcane Laboratory in . This combo has been looked up, but I dunno how it'll work here... It should be useful, but I dunno if it's cEDH competitive or not; much less how it works. If this is good both ways, I'm keeping them. At least tell me how it works, please...

  • Squee Sucks?

Squee, the Immortal + Goblin Bombardment was meant to be used as a combo here. But since this uses Eldrazi Displacer to flicker ETB/CIP Creatures, I'm thinking of cutting the former 2 unless I can find a card that mimics Displacer's effect, so I don't have to have just one of such effect to waste... Felidar Guardian?

  • The Emancipation Proclamation NEVER happened...

Emancipation Angel is something not to be cross with. She can return any permanent you control to your hand. Simple as that. Since it's an ETB ability, Eldrazi Displacer can bounce her, & she can do this again. If you want a list of Creatures in my deck that are ETB/CIP based, SUGOI! LET'S KICK As- Captain Janeway: Asteroids. Seven of Nine: Fun will now commence.

(Yes. I LITERALLY pulled off a Star Trek: Voyager.)

Duergar Hedge-Mage Fiend Hunter Goblin Chainwhirler Goblin Settler Imperial Recruiter Mentor of the Meek Mikaeus, the Lunarch Priest of Urabrask Recruiter of the Guard Solemn Simulacrum Sun Titan Thraben Inspector Village Bell-Ringer Wall of Omens Wily Goblin

(Damn, that's a lot... I need to lessen the lot...)

Paradox Engine is the only thing I have to Isochron Scepter imprinting Dramatic Reversal, so it NEEDS to stay; plus, I could've sworn it was a staple here... While this has quite some ETB/CIP effects, that doesn't have to mean things can't be cast either. Even stuff like Sunforger when casting instants are still considered cast. Even Mistveil Plains can bring them back. I really just wanted to throw in Reito Lantern, though; but cards like Grafdigger's Cage might mess w/ it; so it's now a skip.

Recently, I wanted to take this deck to a differing route; Value Town/Stax/Prison. This in turn meant a lot of stuff; Glowrider, Thorn of Amethyst (How fitting as it's my birthstone; but I still hated how STEVEN UNIVERSE personified her as a character since the beginning... :/), Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Vryn Wingmare, Ethersworn Canonist, Kismet, even Sphere of Resistance is damn good here. While a lot would think stuff like this is crap here, even stuff like Stranglehold, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Grand Abolisher, even Ugin's Nexus & Defense Grid are all great here. Irony? Many wouldn't see all this as competitive enough. So, w/ all that said, one last thing...

  • Any ideas for a new CMDR?

Alright, we're almost done with what might be my longest post here ever... I've been thinking for the longest time; I need a new commander; Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is too much now. Since I took the liberty to change from Stax/Control (Or Value Town/Stax? I dun remember...) to Value Town/Stax/Prison. From there, I decided to make a change of CMDR. But there were bigger flaws w/ most, so I decided to make some regulations:

  1. No Tier 5 CMDRs.
  2. No Tribal Commanders (Stuff like Depala, Pilot Exemplar apply here.)
  3. Partners are only Allowed if not from BBD (Battlebond) (Khorvath Brightflame + Sylvia Brightspear for instance is not allowed.)
  4. Equipment/Aura Based CMDRS are out; I don't have any of that anyway...

I guess this is alright? The reason I left out 5. It must be Aggro Based is, well, the rest of the Tier 4s w/o only counting none of them.

Now I leave all this to you: What should I cut for a legit Tier 3 cEDH deck? I apologize for the Mammoth Sized Text, but it should be worth the effort.

I am open to Constructive Criticism only. I hope this is of good help for what is worth of help to me. I'll let you decide on my fate on this deck now.

soldier1030 the maybeboard isn't all cards that I'm sure I will add, it has a lot that I am mostly just considering. Price of Glory and Stolen Strategy are cards I'm thinking about. However, Crucible of Worlds and Goblin Settler are kinda pricey but I do definitely want them.

I would certainly drop Impulsive Maneuvers, but I need to play more games before I decide what else to drop. Most likely Dire Fleet Daredevil or another card that I find doesn't perform very well.

The red stompy decks seem to be more based around planeswalkers with ensnaring bridge rather than the goblin build. They are both cool decks. I dig the new Chandra cards. The moggcatcher build had the Goblin Settler and Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combo going on, which I always found fun.
