Norin the Wary Commander

Commander / EDH



"I have a bad feeling about this."

What's the point of Norin? I feel like he doesn't contribute much to the deck.

Lhurgyof, that's exactly the point. :-)

Ah, okay. I see it now. :P

Using Norin as commander is worth a point in itself! :)

Vigilante Justice if you're looking for more ETB damage off Norin.

@Slycne Thanks!

MartialArt says... #7

But at the moment Norin leaves the game into the exile zone he moves directly into the command zone hindering him from coming back into play. Using him with Vigilante Justice would become rediculous expensive this way.

@MartialArt "If a Commander would be put into a graveyard or exile from anywhere, its owner may choose to move it to the command zone instead."

May choose.

Ah, ok. Didn't know that. Thanks. I heard it the other way round.

Norin is a ETB trigger machine! I love EDH decks with clever commanders! +1

does he exile himself when he attacks alone? If he doesn't you can use Norin the Wary to win via Worldfire , or use worldfire's cousins Wildfire and Destructive Force to whittle the opponent's resources down...

Glad to see you have Warstorm Surge .

Maybe consider global enchantments that give haste. If you do, Norin can enter the battlefield, swing and flicker himself in the same turn. If you have Warstorm Surge or Vigilante Justice on the battlefield, you effectively have a Shock or a Gut Shot every turn.

In the Web of War , card:Ashling's Prerogative.

I would definitely consider Genesis Chamber , because you would get a Myr per flicker, which would provide either chump blockers or token swarm every spell. Very nice deck man, I'm probably going to start building it :D

Mameshiba says... #17

You can't attack with him, but that's his only fault.

Mameshiba says... #18

Can you have Bosh as your commander??

warper says... #19

+1 For Norin!!!

I don't suppose you'd look at my deck? I Grow Wary of You

anyways, Archwing Dragon , Viashino Sandscout

Genesis Chamber is amazing with Norin, trust me.

I see Blood Moon but I don't see Ruination

Killjoy_Guy says... #20

YES!!!!! finally some1 is running Confusion in the Ranks in their Norin deck lol. if you want to do some things to troll people check out my deck Pancakes!!! (coin flip shenanigans).

December 18, 2012 10:18 a.m.

MiketheVike says... #21

This should be running Mana Echoes .

Genesis Chamber is a must have!!!!

KingPimp says... #23

love it +1 from me!!

June 1, 2013 2 p.m.

So I have a Norin edh deck, I love it, mine is a bit more chased focused than yours, having said that I really like yours and will probably adapt some aspects of it into mine. Check mine out and take any ideas that you like. Norin, Lord of Chaos +1 for having a Norin deck.

Big fan!

July 17, 2013 3:24 a.m.

I used to have a Norin deck and Electropotence and Hamletback Goliath played off Norin really well

NoPantsParade says... #27

No Warp World ? +1, though.

If I get into EDH, this is probably where I want to start. +1

Chaos Warp is good for mono-red removal.

Nice Norin deck. You could always run the Snow Covered Suite for red Scrying Sheets , Skred , Rimescale Dragon . Another suggestion is more draw at least in Wheel of Fortune or Reforge the Soul form. Wouldn't hurt to have a Mind's Eye or Staff of Nin either. Also Solemn Simulacrum , Nevinyrral's Disk , Oblivion Stone , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Zealous Conscripts , Molten Primordial , Conquering Manticore are all good. Sulfuric Vortex might be relevant to your interests too. IDK, good deck!

Gearge says... #31

You could also consider Conjurer's Closet Just for that little bit more ETB.

July 25, 2013 9:18 p.m.

For Extraplanar Lens you'd wanna replace all basic lands with basic snow lands.

So many mountains. Why not Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle ?

Re Norin the command zone and exile, Even if you send him to the command zone his trigger will still bring him back. In fact, you should always do this to stop people using effects like Stifle to permanently exile your commander by countering the delayed trigger.

Gratuitous Violence doubles the damage Zo-Zu the Punisher, Grim Lavamancer, Bogardan Hellkite, Inferno Titan, Guttersnipe, Magma Phoenix, and Stuffy Doll inflicts in addition to doubling combat damage.

If you choose to include Gratuitous Violence then I would also recommend Fanatic of Mogis.

Purphoros, God of the Forge deals damage off of Norin entering, synergizes with Gratuitous Violence when he's a creature (which would only require one more devotion to turn Purphoros into a creature at that point), and does some nice things alongside Genesis Chamber.
