Yeah. 95% of the price is just for BerserkMTG Card: Berserk. I'm starting to get my EDH group hooked on Noble and we all share a huge pool of cards, a playset of BerserkMTG Card: Berserk being among them.

I think the spirit of the format should be held in the hands of your playgroup. If you all collectively decide that expensive cards are okay (our EDH decks tip the scales around $1000...) then I don't see any problem with it. If it's playing with some random people, however, I might reconsider BerserkMTG Card: Berserk for something like Unnatural PredationMTG Card: Unnatural Predation, or something similar to it.

But BerserkMTG Card: Berserk's synergy with Wild DefianceMTG Card: Wild Defiance is insane. On a 1/1, it becomes an 8/8 with Trample. Add anything else beforehand and you've got enough Trample/Infect to kill a player even after a midsize block.

I am actually wondering if this could even be standard viable. Built a bit differently of course, but seriously. You might consider Artful DodgeMTG Card: Artful Dodge

Yeah, I thought about Artful DodgeMTG Card: Artful Dodge. It was actually on my original list that I just kept adding anything relatively effective to. Then I narrowed it down to this.

I think Trample with a pump might be better than unblockable with just +3/+3. Of course, you could always flash it back the same turn you first cast it.

I've actually got a Standard Wild DefianceMTG Card: Wild Defiance build but it lacks consistency. The only problem with a Standard build is that, if you don't draw Wild DefianceMTG Card: Wild Defiance, it's just a crappy Infect deck.

that is what I was thinking. i mean even in a redundant play you give the same dude unblockable twice and then he gets +6/+6.

Blessings of NatureMTG Card: Blessings of Nature could be cool too. adds a counter to four creatures and each gets a Giant GrowthMTG Card: Giant Growth too

I'd've suggested Groundswell common, +4/+4 how much more could you ask for?
