@asaxgod - I would try to explain it, but the best way to go is check this "deck" (with a full explanation of the game) on Tappedout.net: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/introducing-noble-the-format-1/
It's a casual variant, and I'm looking to get into both Pauper and Noble as two budget formats to play.

Looks cool! I know pauper is fun so I bet this will be too.

Hey, I like the deck! I wish I could have gotten to take a part in the competition, I missed it by just a few hours. I almost went with Master of Waves as my general as well, but then I got the Idea to be a terrible person. I use Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker as my general and Deceiver Exarch as my four uncommons alongside Pestermite and can consistently combo out turn four...yeah, I will probably lose friends playing this. Here is my deck in case you want to check it out :)

@Dalektable - I can still put your deck in the challenge just because I've been out for a while on a trip, so I didn't have regular internet access. It's in the competition - good luck to you.
@joriiiii12345 - Yeah, I like it a lot.

First off you really could use some countermagic. I understand that people don't like to play with it but you would gain a lot from some permission as all your spells are already instants anyways.
Secondly this deck looks like a lot of fun, but I think it lacks a little focus. The blink effects work great with adept but play less well with the Wierd and delver. You have 4 delver and frostburn wierd, but you're not supporting the tempo strategy, you're playing this midrange defensive stall deck with a huge finisher which ultimately probably didn't need much help from delver.
I think the best changes you could make is adding some counterspells, removing delver and frostburn, adding in more things like the adept, and cutting lumithread fields to like 2. You have 8 ponder effects, you'll find it eventually. Maybe add in some mana artifacts as ramp.
Go all in on the blink man, I think it's time it reared its head as a contendor.

If you don't have ways to shuffle your deck, Preordain is generally better than Brainstorm. The reason Brainstorm is so powerful in Legacy is that you can crack a fetchland after resolving Brainstorm to shuffle away dead cards. But without shuffle effects, Preordain and Ponder are better at filtering cards, since they don't lock your next two draw steps.
