Norin the Wary is a very funny card with Purphoros, and not particularly easy to answer. Someone casts a spell that would kill Norin? Oh, he just runs away and comes back at the end of the turn!

I'd also consider other cool token producers could be cards such as Dragonmaster Outcast and Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs . Once it rotates and hopefully goes down in price Rekindling Phoenix could also be cool!

Happy brewing!

TypicalTimmy on Rakdos - Are there really ...

Went to my first Modern Monday's at my LGS. I didn't know what to expect, so I just brought a deck I have a lot of fun with - Rakdos Minotaur Tribal. A good wholesome casual-midrange deck. The guys at my LGS absolutely loved it :D

It actually did surprisingly well. I was up against three decks:

  • Izzet Wizards (Absolutely brutally crushed me, lol)

  • Orzhov Vampire Control - I won both rounds :)

  • Boros Soul Sisters - Tied the first two rounds, he bagged the third round.

I actually did great against Soul Sisters. I kept the pressure on, stopped his life gaining tricks in their tracks, stomped out his 1/1s. Everything worked as it should.

But I ended up running into an issue both times he won - Ghostly Prison .

I just found myself at a lack of mana. Even with 7 - 9 mana on the board, I didn't have enough to cast spells and swing at the same time. Alternating turns slowed me down to the point I couldn't do anything. Eventually I just lost because he was able to overwhelm the board with 1/1 Myr tokens as I kept stalling out. He did so via synergy between Norin the Wary and Genesis Chamber .

A quick Gatherer search made me realize that there aren't any enchantment removal spells in Rakdos. They all ask to splash green or white.

Is there something else I may be able to use? Perhaps "Destroy target permanent" or something that may be useful?

Thanks :)

I can also recommend Spawning Pit which can help you against boardwipes and removing devotion if purphoros becomes a creature. Genesis Chamber is also pretty good in the deck especielly with Norin the Wary

ArchFline: I appreciate the tech! I’m not huge on Sundial of the Infinite mostly on account of having to end my turn just to save Chainer’s pets from exile. I have enough sac effects to ensure they’ll be okay in the long run.

Which leads me to...

dritchie: digging a lot of the suggestions. I used to run Disciple of Bolas but don’t anymore because if it’s my only critter (say, early game), it’s a dud. Geth, Lord of the Vault would be nice if I was relying on opposing graves (I aim to be a very self-sufficient Chainer deck due to various meta reasons) — same with Sepulchral Primordial and Rise of the Dark Realms, to a lesser degree. I don’t really want to play Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath mostly because, Daretti, Scrap Savant (in my Norin the Wary deck) and Teferi, Temporal Archmage (in my Aminatou, the Fateshifter build) aside, I don’t tend to like playing commander walkers in the 99. Desecration Demon gives opponents a choice to stop the thing which slows the game plan if abided. My opponent’s don’t tend to have a shortage of blockers or things worth sacking (yet not worth reanimating, oddly enough).

HOWEVER: I like It That Betrays as a consideration (and can do it in paper right now!), so I may take that into consideration soon.

Therefore, I am wondering what to cut for the following cards though (in order of priority): It That Betrays (since I own one already), Exsanguinate, and Contamination (these last two are lower priority because I don’t have them yet... truthfully I’d prefer Contamination before Exsanguinate but the latter is cheaper lol). Any ideas?

seems like a fun build. Even though its not wizard tribal Deadeye Navigator could net you SOOOO many etb triggers and token copies of a flickered wizard.

Polymorphist's Jest is a godsend against aggro and token decks, always a welcome card in hand.

Mission Briefing is budget snappy, without the wizard bod. ~4 at time of posting.

I have seen a silly combo variant with Conspiracy and Norin the Wary as well if you are interested in surprise jank interactions

Overall it certainly seems like it runs. Good job, plenty of opportunities for money pieces to be added.
