Stromkirk Noble Discussion
2 days ago
Hi Snap157, Stromkirk Noble deals no damage on turn 1 (summoning sickness), 1 damage on turn 2, 2 damage on turn 3, Then 3 damage on turn 4, which is still a total of 6, while Goblin Guide (assuming it wasn't blocked or removed) would have dealt 8. The total damage it deals wouldn't catch up with Goblin Guide until turn 5, which is really slow, especially in Legacy.
I don't like Goblin Guide because it's a serious removal target and it helps opponents ramp (especially if they're playing Brainstorm or Ponder- and many decks are). However, I fail to see how Stromkirk Noble is a better option than Goblin Guide in terms of damage.

Personally I always prefer Stromkirk Noble as opposed to goblin guide, because it deals more damage after three turns than guide and grows into a bigger threat. Might want to take into account before you buy them

Josh_Estrella Thanks for the response! :D Also thank you, this is my first EDH deck I've ever made, and everyone here is being incredibly helpful :) I actually just got some of my cards in the mail today. I added in my Viscera Seer, Tainted Field, Tainted Peak, Gifted Aetherborn, Vault of the Archangel, Isolated Chapel, Bishop of Rebirth, Stromkirk Noble, and my Yahenni, Undying Partisan. I still need all 4 tutors (which is going to murder my wallet) Necropotence, Shared Animosity, and a couple of others. I'll update my list tomorrow morning, it's pretty late right now. Anyway, I'll look into Toxic Deluge since I haven't gotten a Damnation yet. I was looking into Bloodghast, but I wasn't quite sure on it since I hadn't seen anyone mention it until now. Also, I already have a Necropolis Regent in there :) I had a Mephidross Vampire, but I opted for the Necropolis Regent instead. I do see what you are saying about the Butcher of Malakir though, 7 cmc for a 5/4 even though he does fly... I think something better can go there. Some stuff I have on hand right now is Vampire Cutthroat, Pulse Tracker, Tithe Drinker (not really a fan), Voldaren Pariah Flip, and Olivia Voldaren just to name a few off the top of my head. I was thinking maybe one of the 1 drops? (kinda leaning towards Vampire Cutthroat maybe) I'm all ears for suggestions though. Anyway, I'm kinda worried that my list a little bit light on the vampires compared to what I hear you guys say you have. I think Frank_Glascock said he has 33 creatures 30 being vampires if I remember right... Oh, lastly have you guys considered a Vanquisher's Banner? I thought that might be an ok card draw tool... You guys are the experts though

I would play all four tutors in this deck: Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Intent and Enlightened Tutor. Enlightened Tutor gets a lot better with the addition of Necropotence and Shared Animosity.
I am not playing Stensia Masquerade but am playing Rakish Heir. My creature count is 33 (30 vampires). My deck wants one and two mana vampires. I cut Stromkirk Noble but have been trying to find a way to get it back into the deck. I am playing Viscera Seer, Pulse Tracker, and Vicious Conquistador.
I am playing Sorin, Solemn Visitor for the life gain and his ultimate is achievable.
I would add all seven of the cards you have listed. Reconnaissance is not in my deck but it seems to get rave reviews. I hate to recommend cuts as I don't know what is working for you. I do not think Last_Laugh, Josh Estrella or me are playing Bloodchief Ascension, Intangible Virtue, Stensia Masquerade, Hour of Revelation, or Blood Tribute.

Thank you guys again for the feedback Josh_Estrella,Last_Laugh,Lil_Kalki and Frank_Glascock! I didn't know Panharmonicon worked like that, I was told otherwise by some people at my card shop so I guess that'll be an easy cut. Going with what you said guys have said so far and to respond to Frank_Glascock-
Cools, I'll get a Necropotence. I had Herald’s Horn as a maybe because I didn't know if it'd be better than Urza's Incubator but I see what you mean with the card draw, so I'll get one of those and make that swap. I have a Dark Prophecy at home, so I can get that sent to me with my other cards. Athreos, God of Passage is a cool card, I didn't know about that. I want to try him out sometime. What should I cut to put my Skullclamp back in? I did want to keep it, but I wasn't too sure on what to take out.
I need a Shared Animosity. Purphoros, God of the Forge is like a really cool upgraded version of Impact Tremors that I didn't know about, I'll have to get him too. I wanted to try to use Impact Tremors somehow, but Purphoros, God of the Forge is way better. Also, I wasn't too much of a fan of Bloodlord of Vaasgoth either, so I could cut him for something. I wasn't sure about Anowon, the Ruin Sage. Should I have a Sorin, Solemn Visitor in place of one of the other two I am currently using? Also, I thought that Stensia Masquerade would be a better alternative to Rakish Heir. Same mana cost but it's an enchantment instead of a creature, and it can give first strike. I could be wrong though, I know we need to be having a lot of vampires. What do you think about the low cost vampires I have so far? Lil_Kalki mentioned cutting Stromkirk Noble, and you said something about Vicious Conquistador. I was going to put Pulse Tracker in but I saw Vicious Conquistador was essentially the same but it's a 1/2 instead. Maybe my Sanctum Seeker is already doing the same job but a bit better...
Should I exchange the two tutors I have for the ones you mentioned, or find a way to squeeze in two more?
Ok so far this is what I'm at so far...

Thanks for the response Lil_Kalki :) I put Captain Kirk Stromkirk Noble in there just to have another one drop vampire. I like how he can +1/+1 himself too. I think the other ones I was considering as far as 1 drops go were Shadow Alley Denizen or Vampire Cutthroat. Also, I wasnt completely sold on Viscera Seer being in there... Reconnaissance is pretty cool though, I just have to find a way to get one so I can try it out. Also, a I saw you guys mention Necropotence a few times, I forgot to put that in my maybe board or ask about it. Do you think that could replace something (like maybe Viscera Seer) for a card draw option?

So, I saw your request from Last_Laughs decklist and youre going to get a LOT of this but let me be the first to introduce you to your new best friend, Reconnaissance.
Recon is like a Maze of Ith that you can use on any and/or all of your attacking creatures to get in the proper damage without repercussions of any kind. It gives a pseudo-vigilance at end-of-combat step (after dealing damage but while your critters are still attackers by definition), you can avoid being killed by opposing creatures in combat either preemptively or after dealing first strike damage, it slice sixes and chops. Its an uncommon from Exodus and is well worth its salt. If an opponent needs a clarification send them to the gatherer and all will be clarified on the main discussion page for the card, btw.
Thats one suggestion. For a cut... why Stromkirk Noble, anyway?

Dark Impostor, Necropolis Regent, Vampire Lacerator and Stromkirk Noble are possible replacements for Voldaren Pariah Flip. I counted today and I have 33 creatures, which include 30 that trigger Markov's eminence ability and 15 that cost two or less mana.
Before you decide, consider that Sorin, Solemn Visitor is the only planeswalker I am playing.
