Introducing Noble: the Format

Description

NobleMtG.com

Welcome, everyone, to the world's first deck built in the Noble Format. Read on for an explanation of this great and affordable format!

What is the Noble format?
At its core, it is a hybrid of the Peasant and the EDH/Commander formats. Contrary to its name, Noble is designed for less-than-affluent players who have great ideas but don't have the money to buy a deck loaded with top-tier cards. Rather, it is designed for people who have a few good 1-ofs, but don't have enough money to fund ridiculous $500 decks. The general idea is to build around a favorite card, a bright spot in your collection, or just a card that you have a great idea for. But the idea is also to let budget builders have a chance to shine.

Sounds interesting. How does it work?
Thank you for asking, disembodied voice. First of all, let's talk about...

Deck Construction
Noble decks may include:

  1. One rare or mythic rare card. This is your Noble card. The Noble card must be rare or mythic rare.
  2. Up to four uncommon cards. These may be any combination of uncommons. For example you may run four 1-ofs, or you may run 4x Lightning Greaves if that's your thing.
  3. The remaining cards must be common cards only.

Regarding rarity, each card's effective rarity is based on the lowest-rarity printing of that card. For example, Oblivion Ring is considered common even though it was printed as uncommon in the Magic 2012 Core Set. Furthermore, a card like Serra Angel that was printed as a rare at one time cannot be used as your Noble card because its lowest rarity printing was uncommon.

Noble is an eternal format, but it can exist in any of the non-eternal formats like Standard or Modern.

Beyond these rules, deck construction is the same as traditional deck construction. Specifically, there is a 60-card minimum, and this includes your 1 rare/mythic, up to 4 uncommons, and 55+ commons.

Sideboarding
Sideboarding is optional. You may choose to build a sideboard of up to 15 cards. Any cards contained in your sideboard count towards your overall rarity quotas. For example, if you choose to run 1x Path to Exile in your sideboard, you may only have up to 3 other uncommons anywhere in your deck. No rares or mythic rares are allowed in the sideboard, since only your Noble card is allowed to be rare or mythic rare.

Okay, now how do I play?
Separate your Noble card from the rest of your cards and set it aside. Much like the EDH format, your Noble card begins face down in the Command Zone, where it cannot be interacted with. You may look at your Noble card at any time, and you may cast your Noble card at any time allowed by the standard game rules.

Your Noble card may be cast from the Command Zone as though it were in your hand, and any abilities of your Noble card may be activated from the Command Zone as if the card were in your hand (for example: Suspend, Forecast, Ninjutsu).

Once your Noble card has been cast, it is treated as a normal card, and it cannot be returned to the Command Zone.

Beyond these rules, the game proceeds as any normal game of Magic would. You draw seven cards, mulligan, yadda yadda yadda.

I want a printable version of this information.
Good guy Crivaro made this wonderful PDF for your printing pleasure: Noble Rules v1.00

No no no, I want a printable version of the rules.
Wonderful dude mafteechr translated the rules of the format into a calculating and precise set of comprehensive rules designed as a supplement to the Official Comprehensive rules. Download the supplement here: Comprehensive Noble Rules

Noble Variant Comprehensive Rules:

100. Noble

100.1. In the Noble variant, each deck features a rare or mythic rare card as that deck's Noble card. The Noble variant uses all the normal rules for a Magic game, with the following additions.

100.2. Each deck has a card with the rare or mythic rare rarity designated as its Noble card. This designation is not a characteristic of the object represented by the card; rather, it is an attribute of the card itself.

100.3. Each Noble deck is subject to the following deck construction rules.

100.3a Each deck must contain a minimum of sixty cards, including its Noble card. There is no maximum deck size; however, you must be able to shuffle your deck with no assistance.

100.3b If a player wishes to use a sideboard, it must contain exactly fifteen cards.

100.3c With the exception of basic land cards, a player's combined deck and sideboard may not contain more than four of any individual card, counted by its English card title equivalent. All cards named Plains, Island, Swamp, Mountain, and Forest are basic.

100.3d A player's combined deck and sideboard must contain exactly one card with either a rare or mythic rare rarity. This card is designated as the deck's Noble card.

100.3e A player's combined deck and sideboard may contain up to four cards with the uncommon rarity.

100.3f The remainder of a player's combined deck and sideboard must only contain cards with the common rarity and basic land cards.

100.4. At the start of the game, each player puts his or her Noble card from his or her deck face down into the command zone. Then each player shuffles the remaining cards of his or her deck so that the cards are in a random order. Those cards become the player's library.

100.5. A player may look at his or her Noble card at any time.

100.6. A player may cast his or her Noble card from the command zone whenever he or she would be able to normally cast their Noble card.

Example: A player's Noble card is Snapcaster Mage. That player may cast Snapcaster Mage from the command zone during his or her opponent's end step, since Snapcaster Mage has flash.

100.6a If a Noble card has the keyword Suspend, then that player may suspend the card from the command zone.

There has to be a Banned List, right?
That's right. Any healthy format requires a banned list, and being an Eternal format with insane combo potential, the list is a bit long. The following cards are Banned in this format:

This list will be updated as new sets release and as cards are "broken". Top decks in this format are expected to win around turn 4. Broken decks that win consistently before turn 4 may demand a ban. If you have reason to disagree with a ban decision, please leave a post below with your reasoning and we will consider updating the list.

What about these questions that I have that may or may not be Frequent?
Q: Do I have to build my deck based on the color identity of my Noble card?
A: No, you may build your deck using any colors.

Q: Why use the Command Zone? Why not just shuffle the Noble card into your library and draw it normally?
A: It wouldn't be much fun to lose if your opponent got their super-powered Noble card in their opening hand while yours waited on the bottom of your library. To take some of the luck out of the equation, the card is available for use from the beginning of the game.

Q: Why doesn't the Noble card go back to the Command Zone if it is destroyed/exiled?
A: Rares and Mythic rares typically have a much higher power level than commons, which make up the bulk of a Noble Deck. Instead of leading to attrition wars based on who has their Noble on the field the most, we felt that it was appropriate to let the Noble card act normally if destroyed or exiled. This allows for graveyard strategies to exist, and doesn't neuter your Disentombs. It also incentivises you to think about this interaction and include graveyard hate like Relic of Progenitus as necessary.

Q: Why is it called the "Noble" format?
A: Well, there's Pauper, which is the lowest of the socioeconomic classes. Then there is Peasant, which is the next step up. A Peasant was a person who worked the land, usually as a farmer. The peasant rented the land from the owner, the Noble, which is sort of the next socioeconomic class up. Now, a Noble is not technically the next socioeconomic class above Peasant, "Yeoman" is. A Yeoman is basically a free Peasant, one who owns their own land. Clearly, "Yeoman" is a terrible name for a format, so "Noble" is the choice!

Q:Does Command Tower produce mana of the color(s) of my Noble Card?
A: While Command Tower is legal in this format, since there is no "Commander", the land does not produce any mana when tapped.

Q:Is there a Noble website yet?
A: It is in the works. Keep an eye on http://www.noblemtg.com over the coming weeks.

Q: How can I find other Noble decks?
A: Use TappedOut's advanced search feature. Noble decks sorted by date updated. Or, Noble decks sorted by score.

Q: Anything else I need to know?
A: Yeah. Make a deck, and leave it in the comments below!

Big thanks to these guys who helped get the format started: Minousmancer, Crivaro, KorApprentice

The world's first Noble Deck: Noble Avenger

Rare:
Gideon's Avenger

A cheap dude who we can build around, and who can finish off opponents who aren't careful.

Uncommons:

Alluring Siren
Your opponent has an annoying dude? Force feed him to the Avenger.

Loxodon Warhammer
A good way to gain a million life when you attack with the Avenger.

Infiltration Lens
Once the Avenger gets big, let's face it, they want to block him. Get the advantage!

Swiftfoot Boots
Obvious protection for the Avenger.

Commons: Lots of tapping power to make the avenger huge. First strikers for defense or offensive evasion. Haunted Fengraf to return the Avenger if he dies. Blue in the side to bring control to the second and third matches.

$6.70 + $2.59 shipping = $9.29 Total Cost (@ TCGPlayer after cart optimization)


Okay, so I admit this decklist might be pretty bad, but I hope it shows a bit of the flavor possible in this new format! Most of all, thank you for taking the time to read this and for making TappedOut the best MtG community!

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!

I've updated my noble deck Tezzeret's a Jerk (Noble)

Seems a lot more playable now. I'm always open for opinions. Also if anyone has any ideas for Time Sieve or Master Transmuter

February 16, 2013 2:41 a.m.

Rahienn says... #8

@RogueArtificer

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.

February 16, 2013 10:10 a.m.

Crivaro says... #9

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

February 16, 2013 10:42 a.m.

Yeah, I have a regular deck with Time Sieve and Thopter Assembly, was just wondering if it would be doable in Noble. Myr Servitor seems to be exactly what I as looking for. Thanks Rahienn

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.

Noblemen: Takeno, Samurai General and Higure, the Still Wind

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

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.

graft says... #16

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.

I still think that Goblin Charbelcher should be banned as a noble.

graft says... #19

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!

Dorotheus says... #22

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.

If its on ANY major banlist (legacy, vintage, EDH, modern, block constructed, or standard), then it should be banned.Also, why Splinter Twin but not Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker ?

do online master's editions count twoard the lowest possible rareity rule?

November 17, 2013 6:58 p.m.

graft says... #24

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!

So, do you start with 20 life, or 40? I haven't seen anywhere where it specifies that, though I could be blind.

20 Life, as normal =)

December 6, 2013 10:03 a.m.

Rugbyfh10 says... #30

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.

FierceShaka says... #32

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.

graft says... #33

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.

FierceShaka says... #34

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.

graft says... #35

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.

FierceShaka says... #36

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.

Crivaro says... #37

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.

Nixnax101 says... #38

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.

vishnarg says... #39

Just pointing this out but I think a few banned cards you missed: Mana Drain , Chaos Orb , and Shahrazad .

January 5, 2014 9:37 p.m.

Crivaro says... #40

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.

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/

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!!

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 fname.lname@gmail.com, where my fname and lname have not changed from the ncf account.

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.

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?

daengburapa says... #69

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.

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 :)

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?

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?

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?

One on one. It is quite competitive, but with a lot of diverse decks. =)

If only it was a more well known format.
