I herd u liek set reviews, so I wrote a Noble-centric set review for Gatecrash. Here it is! http://www.noblemtg.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1467
Go read it instead of doing work or school or whatever. Be a slacker. Peer pressure! There's also a contest in there for those who read carefully. I'd like to make this a recurring column for each new set, so your feedback is important to me. Enjoy!

Also should Goblin Charbelcher be banned? its pretty much game ending and if you have it as the noble it can be used in pretty much any low mana goblin deck then suddenly game

Awesome job on the review btw! Looks great, reads great! Perhaps you could include more combos that can be created with cards from previous sets (like the one on Hold the Gates) those are fun to read.

I've updated my noble deck Tezzeret's a Jerk (Noble)
February 16, 2013 2:41 a.m.
For Time Sieve first things that come to mind are: Disciple of the Vault , Myr Servitor , Myr Sire , Myr Retriever , Genesis Chamber , and Skeleton Shard . I dabbled with an artifact reanimate deck awhile back! Also Thopter Assembly works beautifully but it is rare.

My latest idea, based on grafts gift...The Noblemans Choice of Arms

Right now I'm building a monoblue ninja deck, and a monowhite samurai deck in this format out of the old kamigawa cards I wasn't using. I'll be sure to upload the decklists here once I'm finished!
Once these decks are finished, I intend them to work like duel decks so I can introduce more people to this format.
A lot of the guys in my meta are of the "I would love to build a commander deck, but I just don't have the cash..." so I think this format is perfect for us. Thank you!
February 22, 2013 2:13 p.m.
Props to all of you guys and your amazing format! My decc is The Noble Hero
February 22, 2013 6:16 p.m.
I finished the first iterations of my decks!
Please tell me what you think. =]
February 22, 2013 6:18 p.m.
Well, my little Gatecrash contest is over. Check to see if you are a winner here (spoiler, if you entered the contest, you are a winner!)
February 26, 2013 9:01 a.m.
Question. Can your noble be a viable choice for an imprint target? Such as for Isochron Scepter. (Or for another similar effect)
March 11, 2013 3:11 p.m.
The rules currently do not allow you to imprint your Noble from the Command Zone, but it could instead be imprinted if you had a way to return it to your hand, such as a Regrowth-type effect. We did create a special rule for suspend cards but I feel like it is a bit sloppy to create new rules for specific keyword interactions. I will mull it over. If anyone has any suggestions of how such a rule would be implemented, I'm all ears.
Since Noble is a casual format you can always just ask your playgroup if they would allow the interaction.
March 11, 2013 4:27 p.m.
Working on a new deck Noble Mishra. Let me know what you think?
April 19, 2013 5:50 p.m.
I still think that Goblin Charbelcher should be banned as a noble.
April 25, 2013 10:31 p.m.
With a new set comes a new edition of Noble Notables - Dragon's Maze Edition. Take a peek at my evaluation of cards as reviewed from a Noble perspective, and take part in any or all of the three contests!
Side note: Regarding the ban list, I haven't had time to conduct much testing, but I feel as though we were overzealous with the original ban list. I want to look at trimming it down quite a bit, and eventually update it to see if we need to make additional bans. At some point I will initiate a conversation over in the Noble Forums where we can dissect these issues. Until then, thanks a million for your patience and support!
May 15, 2013 2:10 p.m.
This is the first time reading or hearing of this format. Its interesting.
As for bans... due to the nature of the format.. I believe that if its banned in anything, that it should be banned in this format. This is meant truly for casual players.
August 15, 2013 9:27 p.m.
do online master's editions count twoard the lowest possible rareity rule?
November 17, 2013 6:58 p.m.
Yes, the MTGO Masters Edition printings count towards the lowest rarity. Feel free to go nuts and run 4x Righteous Avengers and 4x River Merfolk s in the same deck :). Same goes for the other Masters Edition prints as well. Thanks for the question!
November 19, 2013 9:12 a.m.
Oh my... this is awesome.
Sun Titan abuse?
I'm on it!
November 19, 2013 9:27 a.m.
November 19, 2013 9:29 a.m.
I found this format today and I absolutely love it, I made my deck and I can not wait to buy it and play with my friends.
November 21, 2013 3:51 a.m.
So, do you start with 20 life, or 40? I haven't seen anywhere where it specifies that, though I could be blind.
December 6, 2013 10:02 a.m.
This is a question I have been wondering as well, when you playtest on here it starts you at 40 life. So this is probably something that should be addressed in the rules.
December 6, 2013 1:59 p.m.
Thanks for bringing up this issue, I was not aware. I left a message for mr yeago! to see if he can fix it.
December 6, 2013 3:47 p.m.
This is awesome! Totally trying it out (yeah, just found it today).
I just have a feeling that "Noble Zone" (or... Throne?) works instead of Command Zone...
December 31, 2013 9 p.m.
Thanks! I hope you enjoy it. We chose to use the Command Zone because it is an existing zone within the comprehensive MtG rules, and it is used the same way. A "Noble Zone" would be different in name only :)
January 2, 2014 4:36 p.m.
I see. Derevi, Empyrial Tactician and Oloro, Ageless Ascetic have effects then, I guess. Though I do not see a situation in which it would make much sense to cast Derevi with 4cc instead of 3cc, Oloro has a real impact. Is that correct? Or the face-down part removes that?
January 2, 2014 5:34 p.m.
Technically the face-down part of the Noble rules prevents either Derevi, Empyrial Tactician or Oloro, Ageless Ascetic from having any abilities in the Command Zone, so neither of their command zone abilities has any function. This doesn't sit particularly well with me, but there are plenty of other cards that also lose functionality as a Noble. What does the community think? Should we change the rule so that the Noble is face-up in the Command Zone (similar to EDH)? Personally I am a fan of the "surprise" of playing against a new deck and trying to figure out what the Noble is. But I can be flexible. Since it is a casual format I think people will play whichever way they like to play, but I can at least update the rules if wanted.
January 3, 2014 8:30 a.m.
I'm with you for the surprise. Just pointed out to be sure =)
And this thing is really good, a poor-man's-game in which we can use a power card fits well for me here (MtG cards cost roughly twice as much in Brazil...). One deck done and it costs... nothing! (Noble of the Parish)
Thanks for the creation!
January 3, 2014 10:44 a.m.
Surprise +1. It's the point of having a secret card, not having it open over and over again. To me, it's a fundamental thing to choose when I use this Noble-Joker. Making it a repeatable trick is a bad thing IMO, because it leads to decks everyone is playing because of this effect of the cards outside the game. They may not be the best decks, but surely more cards with those effect will come since commander is a cool official format (now).
And less diversity in the Noble Cards is pretty much the opposite of what we tried to do with the format - giving unusual cards their ensured spotlight.
January 5, 2014 10:34 a.m.
I personally would have thought that Serf would be a better name, as it is still a low class, and doesn't have any implications of wealth or status. But names aside, I think this sounds like a very interesting format- I hate losing simply because I'm the one guy that can't afford playsets of shocklands. Also, just affirming something: Planeswalkers can be Nobles, right? And the way you phrased the deck construction made it sound like nonbasic lands are a no-go, so no cloudpost silliness?
January 5, 2014 6:52 p.m.
January 5, 2014 9:37 p.m.
Nixnax101: Of cause you can play Planeswalkers as Nobles. Also, you can play as much common nonbasics as you like according to normal deckbuilding rules.
January 6, 2014 10:19 a.m.
I built a Steel Overseer Noble deck; not terribly expensive, about 30$ at average price range. Link dump here- http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/steel-overseer-noble/
@Crivaro: Thank you for that help, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't breaking any rules before I spread it to friends.
January 6, 2014 8:43 p.m.
wow great to see people still commenting on this. If the dev team is still listening in, I'm still interested in building some kind of a deckbuilding queue on the main site, but Yeago never ended up getting back to me about the TO API. If anyone can get a hold of him please send me an email (yall know what it is) as I would love to integrate that feature!!
January 8, 2014 4:56 p.m.
The moment you said $500 for a deck was ridiculous, you lost all credibility. If you're only spending 500 on a deck that wins, you got lucky.
February 27, 2014 5:09 p.m.
April 30, 2014 9:35 p.m.
@ DeathGamer: definitely not. It's a cool card and I don't think it will be too broken.
May 4, 2014 12:22 p.m.
Check out my deck, Elves of the Elderscale, please? It says almost everything is illegal, but none of the cards I'm using are on the Banned List.
May 6, 2014 7:56 a.m.
Check out my wither noble Ashes to Ashes . It is very cheap to build and very aggressive. I hope you like it.
May 18, 2014 7:34 p.m.
Check out my wither noble Asche zu Asche. It is very cheap to build and very aggressive. I hope you like it.
May 18, 2014 7:36 p.m.
Also Battle of Wits should be banned. It's a guaranteed turn 5 win and can be sooner with the addition of mana dorks and other ramping.
June 29, 2014 3:12 p.m.
Here is my first noble deck Noble Life Gain. Please check it out and give me suggestions.
August 23, 2014 5:50 p.m.
Wow, I'm amazed that people are still commenting on this thread - so happy that I could be a part of this!
To graft and the others who worked on the site together - I am currently working for a CMS company which is offering free websites. If you are interested we could migrate to the platform, you would no longer have to pay the $5 per month for noblemtg.com currently (though you would still have to pay for domain registration), and there are additional features in the software which make the creation of websites easy.
If you would like to try it out I can probably accomplish the migration in a couple of days, then we can basically just go nuts on it implementing features which we were interested in but never got around to due to time constraints, school etc...
If you are interested in that or any other aspect of the noblemtg site, including further improvements to it without moving the hosting, shoot me an email. You should still have my email, but that account is flooded with spam. Please contact me at email@example.com, where my fname and lname have not changed from the ncf account.
September 5, 2014 1:25 p.m.
Hey guys. I LOVE this format! I think it will become my new favorite format. This is the first deck that i built in Noble : Noble Reaper, deathtouching your soul.
Take a look if you have time, I will probably do many new decks with the next booster box I'll open.
September 21, 2014 8:55 p.m.
December 10, 2014 6:57 p.m.
ctrlaltelite apparently not, so feel free to try breaking the format with them

Anyone want to help me with a Lethal Vapors Noble?
December 14, 2014 12:47 p.m.
January 11, 2015 12:19 a.m.
It's hardly new at this point, but I figure I should post my most successful Noble deck here: Noble Urborg - What the FRACK?! [Drillin' for Oil]. I love this format, and I've even hosted a Noble tournament.
January 11, 2015 4:40 p.m.
heay my first noble deck is probably too jank but still awsome in its consistency Noble Assault
March 7, 2015 3:44 p.m.
So if I've got a card like Shield Sphere that was printed as a common in a MTGO only set and is uncommon in paper, can I still play it as a common in my noble deck?
May 13, 2015 9:26 p.m.
iClassicControl i honestly doubt MTGO editions count, so i would say no but the rules don't seem to say.
May 14, 2015 1:04 a.m.
Anybody in the Noble-using community have any thoughts on my latest Noble deck -- Natural Enhancement? I'd love to get some feedback!
May 15, 2015 1:19 a.m.
I love this! I came up with an idea similar to this because I liked pauper, but wanted some more flexibility. I called it the bourgeois format because it was like a pauper deck that thought it belonged in the nobility.
May 24, 2015 10:32 p.m.
Not sure if this would actually work, but I'd definitely do something with The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale as my noble card (how is that not banned yet???) playing a bunch of counterspells and burn spells, or I'd have Emrakul, the Aeons Torn as my noble with 4x each Urza's Mine, Urza's Power Plant, Urza's Tower and build around that. Just too lazy to do it tonight, but I'll probably work on it tomorrow. Suggestions are welcome :)
May 24, 2015 10:50 p.m.
Obviously, I did not read all 400 of those comments so if this has already been addressed well sorry.
Says that I may activate my noble's abilities from the command zone. Let's talk Bloodrush. I am technically incapable of discarding a card that isn't technically in my hand-thus, does my Bloodrush noble simply stay in the command zone?
May 25, 2015 1:19 a.m.
This is awesome, I've been looking for a way to make Broodstar as a 'comander' but just didn't quite know how.
One question (and when I did a Ctrl+F I wasn't able to find this question already) but is AEther Vial at all OP for the one (or more) of the 4 uncommons due to it's Darksteel Print?
July 17, 2016 12:48 a.m.
V nice format. Looks like good fun, and great for easing new players toward EDH without blowing their heads up too!
ps. is this more of a one-on-one or multiplayer format in your view?
May 19, 2017 6:31 a.m.
One on one. It is quite competitive, but with a lot of diverse decks. =)
