Norin the Wary Discussion

Norin the Wary would have found his way in here if he was a goblin. As it is right now I'm not sure that he is a necessary inclusion. Tooth and Claw and Firecat Blitz just didn't fit the Tribal theme either. Firecat Blitz when compared to Kindred Charge was a pretty easy choice.

Been playing around with an MTGGOLDFISH build than includes Norin the Wary. I'd maybe remove the 2 Boros Charm from the sideboard, replace them with Harsh Mentor (Great inclusion but is only necessary against decks with lots of activated abilities) and main deck Norin. Works wonders with Champion and Thalia's Lieutenant.

Sorry for the late response, AioriaxWingz!

  1. I think Norin the Wary or Reforge the Soul would both be decent replacements for Massive Raid.

  2. Zo-Zu is not bad, but for 3 CMC his ability is not the best, in my opinion. Goblin Rally used to be in this deck, but it was high in CMC and now that Panharmonicon exists, ETB goblin generators are even better than sorcery generators!

  3. Shattering Spree is not a bad card choice at all. I still prefer Smash because of its instant speed, but really either card can be in that slot and be good!

Thanks, as always, for dropping by and giving some good feedback! :)

Hi freakingShane,

I agree with your opinion for Massive Raid, what do you think if i replace it with some others card like:

  1. Zo-Zu the Punisher
  2. Norin the Wary (i know he is not a goblin but the blink ability just work so well with purphoros xD)
  3. Reforge the Soul (help to draw more cards when empty hand/bad hand?)
  4. Goblin Rally (high mana cost but 4 goblin to triggering purphoros groupslug ability and the goblin also can use for blocking or sac for different purpose...)

do you think cards above is a good choices?

And i replace the Smash to Smithereens with Shattering Spree, an instant spell for single target with extra 3 dmg / a sorcery spell can aim for multiple target, which one you prefer?

Thank you & have a Nice Day~

I have one deck that I call "Fuck Morgan" (Skeleton Christ on my page) because I only bring it out when a particular individual sits down to play. My other decks are mostly for fun, although, my Zombie deck hasn't lost since I put The Scarab God as the commander... In fact, my last game with it was streamed on Twitch if you're interested. 6 player game, and I took almost all of them out myself.

Anyway, back on topic. I only have 2 decks that have less than 3 colors, so I'm probably not the best to ask about mono-colors... Although, if pushed, I would build a Norin the Wary for red, and load up with all the ETB pain I could Warstorm Surge, Gratuitous Violence, Purphoros, God of the Forge etc. with a sub-theme of ultra aggro Urabrask the Hidden, Anger type of play.

goblinguiderevealpls on the soul sisters

best cards in soul sisters are Serra Ascendant and Martyr of Sands, thats why its an "aggro" deck cuz it can play a 6/6 turn 1, you're missing both and only have the sisters, how do you plan on winning outside of pridemate?

Mentor of the Meek is a good draw card, and Champion of the Parish is a cheaper cmc ajani pridemate

Ranger of Eos tutors most creatures in the deck

Kor Firewalker and Auriok Champion are insanely good sideboard cards, and Lingering Souls and Timely Reinforcements are good ways to overrun with tokens and gain loads of life,

splashing red you can run 1 or 2 Norin the Wary if you want virtually untouchable etb soul sisters life on both end steps, and it combos well with pridemate, cotparish and Impact Tremors

if you need more control and defense vs combo you can run stuff like Thoughtseize, more copies of Inquisition of Kozilek, Surgical Extraction/ExtirpateLightning Bolt/helix, Boros Charm

sideboard you're also gonna want Stony Silence and/or Kataki, War's Wage for affinity and Rest in Peace for graveyard hate

Honestly I think that you could splash red to make this deck even more amazing. Adding in Norin the Wary, Lightning Bolt, and Purphoros, God of the Forge, as well as Champion of the Parish and Genesis Chamber was the best thing I could have done for my sisters build. +1, awesome deck

LVL_666 on Hm I have a bad feeling about this

Not a problem, Jester. My only concern is your wincon. It doesn't seem very clear to me. But with Norin the Wary + Impact Tremors, you could really deal some damage. Here are some more cards that have synergy with Norin:
