Whenever a creature enters the battlefield, that creature's controller may have it deal damage equal to its power to target creature or player of his or her choice.

grievances Always do my best to help. The deck is a difficult one to build, for sure. I will say, a viable build that I think could be interesting, although I'm not sure how good, is a Chaos stax build. I'm not sure how good it would be, but the general idea would be destroy lands, play more cards like Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, Lurking Predators, Aid from the Cowl, Contamination, Infernal Darkness, Keldon Firebombers, Pandemonium, and a few others and just play top deck chaos stax. Use your commander for card advantage and shut the board down with jund hate. Take a look at this deck to get a general idea of what I'm hinting at.
Just an idea. Best of luck!

Or the better version for a bit more mana
Warstorm on the battlefield cast Sekki warstorm trigger -> damage to sekki itself. 8x spirit tokens ETB. Warstorm trigger -> damage to player's face.
Sacrifice 8 spirit tokens. Get sekki back from grave to play.
And the loop goes on and on and on and on and...

You should def get rid of Crucible of the Spirit Dragon, it's real bad bro :(. Also Savage Twister is not bad but I feel like you could get more asymmetrical effects like Breath of Darigaaz, Mizzium Mortars, Bonfire of the Damned.
I feel like you might enjoy some ETB damage enchantments like Impact Tremors, Pandemonium, etc, or some red wheel effects, to make sure you draw enough. In general though, I've learned a lot from your synergy and your card choices seem very apt for a budget deck. Your mana seems pretty balanced too. Nice deck!

I love this start! A few things I've thrown together in a similar deck: Genesis Chamber , Panharmonicon , Heartless Hidetsugu , Squee, Goblin Nabob , Squee, the Immortal , Confusion in the Ranks , Furnace of Rath , Impact Tremors , Pandemonium , and Purphoros, God of the Forge . Purphoros may be too much for your low-cost but I love anything that does things upon ETB!

Good point. Either that or have something like Pandemonium in play too, right?

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

Ah, another Norin player. So you must be a man of culture as well! +1 I got some questions for u....
Vigilante Justice seems weak, hows it working for u?
No Goblin Engineer ?
Goblin Settler = GOOD TIMES ;)
No Treasure Nabber or are you just trying to blow up their artifacts instead?
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 :)
Feldon and Stranglehold ARE A MUST! So much value from Feldon. Strangle stops edric/baral turns, tutors and land fetching (key!).
No Sunbird's Invocation ?
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.
