Crivaro i think your wrong. The rule for Noble is that your main decklist can only have 4 uncommons. You may have uncommons in your sideboard, but you have to put them in in the place of the other uncommons.
I believe that is how it works, if i am wrong, im sorry, this format has a lotta different parts.

Actually I am right, sorry:
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.
THE IMPORTANT PART:
100.3e A player's combined deck and sideboard may contain up to four cards with the uncommon rarity.
/END IMPORTANT PART
100.3f The remainder of a player's combined deck and sideboard must only contain cards with the common rarity and basic land cards.

Yah Crivaro is right. 4 Uc total, side and main.
I dunno how broken this is: you have to find a station first... That's a big problem with my other combo decks which aren't super-consistent like Storm. Although here your combo piece pulls double-duty as an everything-stopping blocker, which is very nice.
If you really think it's broken, can you run like 10-20 test draws and see how quickly you can win unimpeded and post the results here or on the main thread? Because unless it's turn 3 pretty consistently unimpeded then it's not up to par with the rest of what's on the ban list. If you want to test it against something else too I can help with that.

No problem, I'm glad I can help. And I don't know if it needs banning. You need 3 pieces to get your combo going, aren't you? An Artifact, a 0-cost Creature and your Noble. Pretty vulnerable to removal of nearly any kind... really, would you like to do a bigger playtesting and send us the results? It would be really helpful! Mendroid already mentioned that, thanks for that! :)
