Stromkirk Noble Discussion

Gilgamesh_McCoolio on No mercy, No surrender

I don't know if you're looking for cards that your local game store doesn't have, but if you just want general recommendations, I have a few.

Some highly recommended burn spells: Incinerate, Searing Blood, Magma Jet, Magma Spray, Pillar of Flame

Some good creatures: Ash Zealot, Stromkirk Noble, Firedrinker Satyr, Zurgo Bellstriker, Vampire Lacerator

Some other strong options:Duress, Doom Blade, Tragic Slip, Disfigure

This is if you want to make an extremely aggressive deck. All of these recommended cards are somewhere in a budget range, with nothing over 50 cents (on TCG player).

You also should cut 4 cards no matter what, because you currently have 64. You should probably get rid of Seismic Stomp, Madcap Skills, Mugging, and Act of Treason. The first 3 are sub-par, the last one is a more niche card.

If you're going to make that hyper-aggressive deck, I think 19-20 lands is preferable. And the 3 and 4 drops aren't going to cut it.

If you want to keep Exava and add planeswalkers, the deck is going to be a lot slower. If you do go that direction you should add some of the control elements like doom blade and duress. You should also probably take some of the 3-drops from the deck you linked to: Shambling Remains, Hellhole Flailer, Ashenmoor Gouger.

Just my 2 cents.

I was sad to see him go as well but without fastlands I was usually forced with the choice of playing Stromkirk Noble turn 1 or Gifted Aetherborn turn 2. The lifelink did help the deck out a lot though so I included Nighthawk this go around.

Thanks!

I have to disagree with snap here, you absolutely want Goblin Guide over Stromkirk Noble. The damage is incomparable, especially in a world with fatal pushes and such. Think of it this way: by the time noble has done 1 damage, the guide has already done 4. It's the best creature for burn, bar none.

Some thoughts -

  1. You don't want Cinder Barrens or really any land that comes in tapped (for reference Bloodfell Caves is better, marginally) and would probably be better off with basic lands. Also you might not have enough land, maybe add one to take you up to 20.

  2. You don't want Macabre Waltz when you can have Call to the Netherworld for free.

  3. You don't want Tormenting Voice when you can have Faithless Looting for 1 less and get a second use in a pitch. Also with Tormenting Voice you have to discard even if the spell is countered.

  4. You don't want Distemper of the Blood, it targets one creature when you have a swarm of vampires, taking Vampiric Fury to 3 would work better with that tactic.

  5. Terminate might be better as Dreadbore, having a way to kill a Planeswalker outright is useful, even at sorcery speed.

Your creatures need a tighter focus:

  1. Ideally you want to have 4 Stromkirk Captain, to give you space for this cut the 2 Incorrigible Youths, it just won't do enough.

  2. You also want to have 4 Heir of Falkenrath, remove Stensia Masquerade and 1 Stromkirk Condemned, personally I'd cut all the Stromkirk Condemned so you could run 4 Asylum Visitor, and you have the extra 2 Stromkirk Captain.

  3. Stromkirk Noble has surprisingly good evasion against most decks and gives you a better mana curve, afraid it makes sense to cut Furyblade Vampire, I'd also suggest Indulgent Aristocrat as you don't want to be sacrificing vampires when they are being pumped, thus letting you go wide.

  4. I'm not sure where you'd put it but I've rarely seen a vampire list without Gatekeeper of Malakir, you might want to make a space for it.

That's all from me, hope it is of help.

This looks like fun, you are short on discard outlets though, might I suggest replacing Stromkirk Noble with Insolent Neonate. Also, like you said Bloodlord of Vaasgoth is mana intensive maybe switch him out for more removal like Terminate or even more discard like Stromkirk Condemned

Would you say i'd be better off with a playset of Stromkirk Nobles instead of Goblin Guides, at least for now?

Thanks for the advice.

goblin guides are not all they are hyped to be, I would consider Stromkirk Noble instead. Include the Tarn to search for things like Blood Crypt. I would also replace Magma Jet with Rift Bolt. Looks solid, +1

No Bolt? Smuggler's Copter is also a fantastic enabler for the deck. Also you may want to consider a lower curve, replacing expensive vamps like Aristocrat and Kalitas with Copter and maybe Stromkirk Noble. Madness works better with a lower curve.
